The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

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 With Monica and Chandler's Wedding, Part 2 - S7-E24

Revealing mistake: At the point in the ceremony where Joey forgets the rings, the camera pans out and you see Chandler step sidewards to get the ring from Ross, and Monica step sidewards to get the ring from Rachel and Phoebe. As Monica moves, her dress slides across and one of her feet is revealed; it has what looks like a brown boot or heavy brown shoe on it.

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.

The One With Chandler In A Box - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When Chandler is telling the friends the meaning of the box, the camera goes a bit too high and all the stage lights and equipment become visible on the ceiling.

The One With The Jam - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: Right at the end when Ross hits Chandler with his rolled up magazine, he only folds over one-third of the magazine onto the middle third. When it cuts to him hitting Chandler (without a time delay between him hitting Chandler and folding the magazine) the magazine is fully folded over.

The One With The Proposal, part 2 - S6-E25

Continuity mistake: When Monica is in Richard's apartment she gets all worked up, so Richard gives her a hug to calm her down. She goes into the hug with her arms curled up in front of her face, but when the camera angle changes, they are at Richard's back.

The One With Chandler In A Box - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: In the episode with Chandler in a box, when Rachel is showing Ross all the things she had kept from their relationship in a shoe box, her hair is tucked behind her ear in most shots, but when she says "I keep the gifts that matter", it's all loose, then goes back to how it was in the following shot. Also in the shot before that line she's pointing the fossil at Ross, but when it cuts to a front view she's pointing it upwards.

The One With The Baby Shower - S8-E20

Continuity mistake: In the one with Rachel's babyshower, Monica needs to ring Rachel's mom to invite her. She says that she has her number in her phone book and walks over to the phone - we see her start to look at it, but when the angle changes she's got the phone and is dialling.

The One With The Jam - S3-E3

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Chandler is talking to Rachel and Ross about how Janice thought that he had somehow called her fat, if you watch Monica's closet in the back, you can see the shadow of someone walking past, under the door.

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

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Chandler sits on Joey in an attempt to regain possession of his seat, the shirt sleeve on his left arm becomes unrolled and slides down. When he stands up, the camera cuts to face Ross while he is giving out directions, leaving Chandler's back to the audience. Chandler's sleeve is now rolled back up. The sleeve remains rolled for the rest of the sequence.
