The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Revealing mistake: When Joey has the turkey on his head, and Chandler is by the door, look at the wall to Chandler's right. It's a "wild wall" - i.e., a movable wall put there to extend the set outward an additional few feet, since the camera normally doesn't see that far forward. The wall angles oddly away from the room, and you can see how the line and pattern of the hallway floor continues into the room.

The One Where Underdog Gets Away - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: Whenever Monica's apartment is shot from the point of view of the balcony looking in, fake walls have to be put up across the room to cover the open space (since there is no wall there usually). When the friends are looking out the window at Ugly Naked Guy and his girlfriend in this episode, you can see that the rear wall does not extend nearly far enough - there is a large black space behind Monica.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Continuity mistake: In 'The One With The Shark Porn' (Series 9), when Chandler and Monica are talking about his supposed shark obsession, Chandler's collar switches from up to down depending on the shot. It switches several times during the scene.

The One with the East German Laundry Detergent - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: When Rachel says, "If you want this cart you're gonna have to take me with it.", you can see Ross mouth "with it" behind her.

The One With Rachel's Assistant - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Joey is talking to the producers of Mac and Cheese, he says, "We're not even shooting them anymore?!" As he says this he lifts his left arm up, but in the very next shot his left arm is back down by his side.

The One With The Bullies - S2-E21

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Ross, Chandler, and the bullies are fighting in the street, an extra bumps the fire hydrant and it wobbles and slides over.

The One The Morning After - S3-E16

Revealing mistake: In the shot where Monica and Phoebe are taking off the wax strips, they make a big fuss about how much it hurts. However, watch carefully and you will see one of the strips just fall off.

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: When we see the video, notice Rachel's hair. It is the same length as it is throughout season 8, but her hair is supposed to be the short bob she had in season 7 since it took place then.

The One with Two Parts: Part 1 - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: If you look closely you can see that the name of the restaurant "Riff's" is printed on by computer in post-production.

The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Chandler picks up the phone, he says "Bob here" and Ross is sitting by the bar on the living room side. When the scene starts again after the credits, Ross is getting a drink out of the refrigerator.

The One That Could Have Been, part 1 - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joey gives Chandler the orange juice and says sorry, the paper cup's logo faces Joey's hand, then the shot goes to Chandler and when it comes back, the logo on the cup faces Chandler.

The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Visible crew/equipment: When Mike and Monica are playing ping pong after Mike says "do you wanna volley a bit for serve?" when the camera switches to a wider shot the microphone dips into view above Monica's head.

xx:xx:xx

The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Revealing mistake: When Ross is talking to the weird obsessive scientist at the bar, just before the wife comes in, the wall behind the professor moves in shot to allow the cameraman room to swing around in the next shot.

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe's trying to make the TV work at the beginning, in the close-ups and the first wide shot the remote's at an angle, but in the second wide shot it's straight. It then goes back to being at an angle.

The One With The Tiny T-Shirt - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: Ross is over at Chandler and Joey's looking through the peep hole for hours waiting for Rachel to return. When she does and Ross sees her go inside with Mark, Ross tries to open the door to go see her, and Chandler jumps on his back to stop him. As Chandler says "I...am not going to let you do this", Ross grabs the door handle. Then the angle changes, and as Chandler says "You...are surprisingly strong," Ross is further from the handle and grabs it again.

The One Where Underdog Gets Away - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Chandler is able to get into Monica's apartment to tell everyone that Underdog got away, but later when Rachel closes the door it is now locked. We can see the door as each person is leaving and nobody does anything which could be construed as locking the door before it closes. It's been often demonstrated in the show that the door doesn't lock automatically.
