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 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 Joey's New Girlfriend - S4-E5

Audio problem: In the sequence where Chandler chases Kathy down the street, there is a moment, shortly after he walks into the man with the hotdog, where he shouts her name, but his lips don't move at all.

00:11:25

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.

00:14:40

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.

00:21:55

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.

00:10:30

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.

00:17:00

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.

00:00:05

The One with the Thumb - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe visits Lizzie, Lizzie is feeding the pigeons with her right hand. In the next shot, a plastic bag has appeared in her left hand from nowhere.

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.

00:15:15

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.

00:32:00

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.

00:13:15

The One Where Monica and Richard Are Just Friends - S3-E13

Continuity mistake: When Richard sits in Monica's room, when Monica opens the door we can see in the background the living room's window draperies, table, picture frame, etc., but they're not as they should be. In this mock-up the shade is pulled down, the draperies look different, and the direction they're all facing differs.

The One With Phoebe's Cookies - S7-E3

Continuity mistake: While trying out different recipes, at one point Monica's holding a cookie in her hand. It's a whole cookie, but when the angle changes, suddenly a chunk is missing.

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.

00:12:30

The One With Rachel's Assistant - S7-E4

Revealing mistake: When Rachel holds up the Polaroid she took of her assistant, it appears to have been one of the actual photos taken in the earlier scene; you can see the edge of the set behind him, and the overhead lights in the black space to the right of the photo.

00:07:40

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.
