The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Rachel arrives at Central Perk, Monica introduces her to everybody, including to Chandler, as if they don't know each other. In later episodes, we learn that Chandler met Monica and Rachel a couple of times when they were in high school (including when Monica cut his toe off). Chandler even kissed Rachel once, and since Chandler always says that he hasn't kissed many women, he should have perfectly remembered Rachel, and Monica should have remembered that the two of them knew each other.

The One With Rachel's Other Sister - S9-E8

Other mistake: When Joey and Phoebe are talking while Rachel and Amy are fighting, Phoebe says the line 'Oh my God. Shouldn't we stop this?', Joey is mouthing her lines.

The One With Frank, Jr. - S3-E5

Other mistake: Chandler tries to open the door that leads to his room, but Joey has sawed the door in half so only the upper half opens, and Chandler then falls over the bottom half. He has to hit it with some force to fall over it, but it doesn't budge an inch.

The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

Other mistake: When Rachel leave her message on Ross' answering machine she mentioned the name Michael after 17 seconds and "I'm over you" after 25 seconds. When Ross listen to the tape he asks "Who is Michael ?" after 8 seconds. Rachel flips the phone out of his hand after 18 seconds so he couldn't have heard her "I'm over you."

xx:xx:xx

The One Where Rosita Dies - S7-E13

Other mistake: In this episode we seemingly understand why Ross and Monica's parents favor Ross. In one scene at Monica's apartment Ross says that it is because their parents thought Judy was barren. This would make sense except that in TOW Rachel's Book, Jack and Judy tell Monica and Chandler that they had to get married because Judy was pregnant. Judy was using a diaphragm as birth control and Jack's dog ate it. It doesn't make sense that Judy would use a diaphragm if she thought she was barren. This was not news to Monica since she said she had heard the story about the dog eating her mother's diaphragm at her 5th grade Halloween party.

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Other mistake: In series 8, 'The One with the Videotape,' when they are watching Ross and Rachel on the TV and when Rachel (on the video) is discussing the invitations and how Monica didn't shut up about sending them, Chandler points at the TV and makes a kind-of confused face. A few minutes later, just before he says 'Did you do it on our invitations?' the same shot of him pointing and pulling a face comes up.

xx:xx:xx

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Other mistake: When Joey comes out the bathroom in the girls' apartment with a turkey stuck on his head, the bathroom floor has the black and white tiles. But that floor wasn't there until Joey put it there in Series 3, The One With Frank Jr. So in the flashback the bathroom floor should be white tiles.

xx:xx:xx

The One With Two Parties - S2-E22

Other mistake: In the scene where Rachel is talking to Chandler in the hall, after she says "the 4th of July", it cuts to a shot from behind Rachel's head. If you look on the right hand side of the screen, you can see a piece of wood in the foreground. This probably came from Joey and Chandler's doorframe, through which this view would have been filmed. In addition, this door was supposed to have been closed throughout the entire duration of this scene.

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Ballroom Dancing - S4-E4

Other mistake: Right at the end of the episode, Phoebe's got a job interview. We see the outside of a massage parlour, but the name on the awning has been superimposed - it moves about a bit while the shot itself is still.

xx:xx:xx

Jon Sandys

The One With The Football - S3-E9

Other mistake: The accent of the Dutch woman is not a Dutch accent at all. It appears to be Scandinavian.

xx:xx:xx

The One with the Evil Orthodontist - S1-E20

Other mistake: This is the episode where a guy across from Monica's apartment is spying on them. Joey says he caught him spying into his and Chandler's apartment yesterday. This is impossible considering the layout of the building i.e. the fact that the only part of Joey and Chandler's apartment which faces toward the spying guy has the stairwell and hallway blocking it from view (not to mention the protruding part of Monica's apartment). There is another window in Joey's apartment but it faces completely the wrong direction. The bathroom has no windows. The angles just don't add up.

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Other mistake: Ross makes up the questions for the quiz. There are two groups of questions, one for the girls and one for the boys. Each one has four categories; there are four questions in each category. From these 16 questions, Ross asks ten. Thus, there have to be six left after the quiz. But in one group, seven questions can be seen (there are seven cards left).

xx:xx:xx

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Other mistake: When Joey and Chandler are in the cab on the bridge, Joey quickly stops the cab so Chandler can get out. However, on the screen behind, the background doesn't 'slow down' as Joey does, it just continues as if the cab is going at the same speed. Then, in the next shot, it is still. When Joey sets off again, the background stays the same and doesn't show that the cab is getting faster.

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Truth About London - S7-E16

Other mistake: Right at the very end, when Joey is in the fat-suit and picks up a piece of food and says "How you doin'?" he doesn't put it in his mouth, he just lifts it to his lips, stops, and tries to stay still. If this had been a freeze on the part of the director then fair enough, but it isn't as he and particularly Monica are still moving. It just looks rather corny and amateur, as though they are waiting for the "cut" to be called.

xx:xx:xx

David Mercier

The One Where Joey Speaks French - S10-E13

Other mistake: When Chandler, Monica and Erika arrive back at the apartment after sightseeing, Chandler enters the apartment from the left (past where their apartment door is) rather than from the right, as if he came up the stairs. He obviously is entering from the stage and didn't take the time or cue to appear to enter from the direction of the stairs.

The One With The Kips - S5-E5

Other mistake: When Ross tells Rachel he can't see her anymore, the door to Monica's room is open revealing a completely blank and empty room.

The One With Ross's Thing - S3-E23

Other mistake: When Ross goes to see Guru Saj, he has his 'thing' removed. However, it is really obvious that Guru is not going anywhere near the thing, because you can see that Ross' shirt is still tucked into his trousers, and the Guru just rubs his hands along the shirt.

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Rumor - S8-E9

Other mistake: Monica and Chandler's wedding is May 2001 (we are given the dates by the characters on the show, so it doesn't matter when the show aired.) And Rachel reveals at the wedding that she is pregnant, so that means she got pregnant in April or so of 2001. "The One With the Rumor" aired and is set to take place at Thanksgiving 2001, during which time Rachel should be 7 months pregnant. But her stomach's flat as a pancake.

xx:xx:xx

The One After 'I do' - S8-E1

Other mistake: When Chandler says "We just got married. Right there!" and points. We hear a small 'ding' and Monica asks "Is that your ring?" But when Chandler pointed, you can see that all of his fingers except his index finger are closed to his hand. So the ring couldn't have come off.

xx:xx:xx

The One Where No One's Ready - S3-E2

Other mistake: When Monica beeps into Richard's machine and changes the outgoing message, she always presses the same two buttons when trying to interact with his machine, but gets a different result each time.

xx:xx:xx

Brad

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 2 - S4-E24

Other mistake: As the wedding begins, the first bridesmaid, Felicity, walks down the aisle with a man. He is not part of the wedding party but is wearing the same attire as the best men. He is not seen again throughout the wedding. The only two men in the wedding party are Joey and Chandler.

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Ballroom Dancing - S4-E4

Other mistake: In the scene where Rachel is going to take out the trash, Monica tells her the garbage room is the 3rd door on the left. However, when Rachel comes back with the pizza box and Monica leaves for the garbage room, she leaves the apartment and walks towards the right - there are no doors that way, just the stairs.

xx:xx:xx

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 2 - S4-E24

Other mistake: In the episode with Ross's wedding to Emily, Joey is talking on a cell phone with Phoebe as he walks down the aisle. Joey holds the phone out to Ross saying 'it's Phoebe', and one can clearly see that the phone's screen is completely blank. The phone isn't even turned on.

xx:xx:xx

The One With Joey's New Brain - S7-E15

Other mistake: In the scene where Phoebe and Rachel are talking in Phoebe's apartment and Tom is waiting at the door, after Phoebe says "you are such a good friend", we hear someone say Tom, meaning its Tom's turn to talk.

xx:xx:xx

The One Where Paul's The Man - S6-E22

Other mistake: There are two mistakes in the scene where Phoebe spots Joey's picture in the laundromat. For one thing, when Phoebe says "Oh, here it is", she is looking in the opposite direction of the picture. Also, when she says this, her mouth doesn't move at all.

xx:xx:xx

Brad

The One Where Rachel is Late - S8-E22

Other mistake: Ross wants Rachel to change, but she claims that it is 100° out. Monica and Chandler got married on May 15, the day Rachel was officially pregnant. 9 Months after May would be Febuary. It would be cold out.

The One With The Football - S3-E9

Other mistake: The friends are playing touch football with touchdowns worth 7 points and no way of scoring field goals. So this makes it impossible for the girls to be two points down with thirty seconds to go.

Show generally

Other mistake: In 'The One With The Ick Factor' (Season One) Monica states that she is 26 years old. This episode takes place in 1994/95. However there are numerous other episodes such as 'The One With All The Thanksgivings' that show Monica and Rachel (who are the same age and in the same class) still being in High School in 1988. In 'The One Where The Stripper Cries' the two have to sneak into a college party in 1987 as they are still high school age. They should be at least 19 or 20 in 1987/88.

The One Where Nana Dies Twice - S1-E8

Other mistake: When Ross is helping choose a dress and shoes for Nana to wear, he is behind the chest of drawers in the cupboard. He looks in a shoebox and finds lots of pink sweet'n low packets, then pulls down another box and lots of packets fall down on him. However, it is obvious that someone is above him showering the packets down, as they are coming from directly above him, not from on top of the door.

Other mistake: When Monica's trying to evoke some kind of an emotional reaction from Rachel, who's polishing her toenails, there's a bottle of Cutex nail polish remover on the table with part of the brand name painted black, so it reads "Cu Ex" on the label.

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Other mistake: When Phoebe and Ross are at JFK, some of the people who are at that airport are the same people who are also at Newark. It's particularly funny to see the people behind Ross and Phoebe at JFK when Phoebe claims they're on their honeymoon, and when it cuts to Rachel at Newark as she's looking for her boarding pass, those same people are there too.

The One Where Chandler Takes a Bath - S8-E13

Other mistake: In the opening scene, while Joey's eating the bowl of Frosted Flakes the box is on the counter, and the brand name "Kellogg's" has been painted blue with its white line extended and covered with a sticker. At the end of the episode, when Joey's eating the Cocoa Puffs the box on the counter has the brand logos for General Mills covered with stickers on the front and sides.

The One With Two Parties - S2-E22

Other mistake: When Ross is at Monica's party getting Mr. Green's glasses and cigarettes he bumps into Mrs. Green and ends up having to come up with an alibi for the glasses and cigarettes. He then puts the glasses on, puts a cigarette in his mouth and says 'In fact I'm gonna go out into the hallway and fire up this bad boy'. At this point he walks past Rachel but he stops still as if frozen mid-step just before the shot cuts to him walking out into the hallway.

The One Where Joey Speaks French - S10-E13

Season 1 generally

Other mistake: At the first shot of Central Perk, in "The One With The Monkey" and "The One With The Dozen Lasagnas", you can see they used the same footage twice because the same three people are having the same conversation in both episodes.

Show generally

Other mistake: In almost every season when the friends are in the coffee shop, it shows a front view of Central Perk; and a lot of times, in different episodes, the same (unaging) lady with blonde curly hair is walking past the shop. There are also a couple of different episodes where two babies with red hair are being carried past the coffee shop.

Mistakes

When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding.
