Continuity mistake: When Ross and Rachel are out in the Porsche it is dark outside, but when it later cuts back to Joey in his apartment stealing Rachel's underwear it is broad daylight. It is also light outside when Joey and Phoebe are talking at the coffee house later on.
Continuity mistake: When Chandler's in Rachel's office, she tells him the lingerie isn't kept there. He says, "Yes I realise that", and starts reaching for the catalogue she's about to give him. Camera cuts, and he's now standing with his hands in his pockets, reaching out again when she gives him the catalogue.
Continuity mistake: When the friends are talking about the contest to prove who knows each other better, Monica says to Joey "Are you scared?" and Rachel has her arms crossed. Joey says "No" and in the next shot of Rachel she is crossing them again.
Audio problem: When Joey is proposing to Rachel and he tells Phoebe to give him the ring back, she says "No!" and pulls her hand away. When she pulls it away, she hits her chest and there's a thump sound that's clearly the sound of her clip on microphone being hit (it's way too audible to be just a thump on her chest).
Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Phoebe knocks over the vase, after she says, "Well, that's just the way things go" and turns around to face the babies again, you can see a crew member coming out of Rachel's room. When Phoebe starts looking for the missing baby, the shadow of the crew member is visible on the right of the screen as the baby is placed in the drawer.
Factual error: The main part of the episode is played out in Chandler & Monica's hotel room (which is situated in between Rachel's and Ross's rooms). The window is opposite the audience and the door on the right. However whenever we see inside Ross's hotel room, he has a window opposite the audience as well. This is impossible as this should be where the hallway is to get to the main door to Chandler & Monica's room. Also, throughout the episode Monica, Chandler & Phoebe all listen through the walls (on either side of their room) to what the other friends are saying, meaning there must be no gap between Ross's and Chandler & Monica's rooms- making the window in his room geographically impossible.
Continuity mistake: At the end when Chandler is singing "Endless Love", Phoebe comes in and when she walks over to Chandler he has his arms wrapped around the Lionel Richie record with the shoe in his hand in front of the record. When the shot switches to just Chandler, his right arm is resting on the arm of the chair and his left arm is holding the shoe behind the record.
Continuity mistake: Phoebe is complaining about people disrespecting her charity bucket, and hands the bucket to Monica as she does so. In the first two shots Monica holds the bucket by its edge, but when the camera goes back to her for a third time, she is holding the bucket by its handle.
Continuity mistake: There is a shot of Phoebe in Central Perk about to talk to Frank (from outside, looking in). From this shot there are several people outside Central Perk. The camera does an instant cut to behind Phoebe, (inside, looking outside) and the people have vanished.
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."
00:10:35 - 00:12:50
Continuity mistake: Phoebe and Ross are in the soon to be closed bar sitting on the pool table. He clears it of everything, but a few seconds later he stops making out because the "damn balls are in the way" and somehow magics up a handful of snooker balls. If you look closely when he's clearing the table, there are two dark balls at the side which he studiously ignores, and which Lisa Kudrow then surreptitiously grabs and takes onto the table with her so David Schwimmer can grab them later.
Continuity mistake: Chandler walks into his apartment to find Rachel eating cheesecake without him. As the door is shutting, the pen on the Magnadoodle is hanging loose; it can be heard hitting the door when Chandler is closing it. The next shot shows Rachel stop eating, and when we next see Chandler, the door is closed and the pen is in its holder.
