The One Where the Monkey Gets Away - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Monica takes the newsletter from Rachel it's open to the pages with engagement news, and we can see the left page has pictures as Monica reads Mindy and Barry's notice on the right page, but when Monica wiggles out of her comment about Mindy being pretty that left page is now only words at the bottom, even though she's still open to the same page with Mindy and Barry's notice.

The One With The Proposal, part 1 - S6-E24

Visible crew/equipment: After Ross breaks up with Elizabeth, when she throws the water balloons at him and he starts walking away, a crew member's feet are seen standing on a windowsill behind Ross. Additionally, when Ross has exited the building, just as Elizabeth calls to him and he turns around we can see a crewmember, presumably standing beside the second camera, at the bottom left corner of the screen. We know it's not a passerby because he is as tall as the second story window behind him, which means he's elevated on a platform or ladder. (00:19:15)

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Rachel takes the cat to apartment number 8 and Mr. Heckles opens the door. However, in this episode, the girls' apartment is labeled number 5 which means that number 8 is above them. In later episodes, Mr. Heckles always says that the noisy girls upstairs are keeping him from doing things. [It makes a bit more sense later on in the series when Monica and Rachel's appartment changes to number 20, which is when Mr Heckles starts to complain about the noise (although in the flash back episode when Phoebe is still living with Monica it seems apparent that they actually know Mr Heckles, which Phoebe shows no sign of when she and Rachel are looking for the owner of the cat).] (00:13:40)

The One With The Ball - S5-E21

Audio problem: When Rachel is trying to sell the cat and someone looks the hiss is a clear overdub. (00:16:20)

Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.

The One With The Jellyfish - S4-E1

Question: When Ross and Rachel are fighting, Chandler hides behind the door and bursts out saying "I knew it." When Rachel says, "It's not that common, it doesn't happen to every guy and it is a big deal.", is this just a Chandler moment or is there another joke I have missed?

Answer: The statements that she's contradicting (that it is common, it happens to every guy, and it's not a big deal), are the things that a woman commonly says to a man who is suffering from erectile difficulty, typically to assuage his bruised ego. However, most men do not believe that these statements are true, as evidenced by Chandler's outburst. He's so caught up in the proof that women are lying about it that he gives himself away.
