Revealing mistake: When Chandler and Monica (and later Joey) are talking on the plane on the way back from London, the little display screen (showing a map of the Atlantic and coastlines) in front of Monica's seat shows the little grey plane indicating their position and direction. The plane is facing east, as though they are travelling towards London, but they are supposed to be flying back to New York.
Continuity mistake: When Phoebe says she is going to "pack her ass off" she walks toward the coffee house door, and they cut to a quick shot of Joey then back to the wide shot with the door, and Phoebe has disappeared. She did not have time to make it to the door and out. (Widescreen version).
Continuity mistake: Phoebe and her mother are in her mother's house at the beach. Phoebe has just found out that Phoebe senior is her real mother. Have a look at Phoebe's mother in this episode and the last episode of series 3 (The One at the Beach). Her hair is a lot shorter in series 4 even though no time has passed in the storyline.
Continuity mistake: After Will has arrived and Chandler says, "I'm watching the game but I'm not deaf," you can see Will in the background with his hands on his hips. When the camera switches to just Will and Monica, Will suddenly has two wine glasses in his hands.
Continuity mistake: Throughout the entire first scene where Rachel is asking Chandler and Monica if they have seen Joey and he's in the bathroom, Chandler is sitting at the table and his blue cup constantly switches from being in his hand to on the table much too quickly to be real movement. At one point he even holds a piece of food which then disappears from his hand back on to the plate.
Continuity mistake: In the previous episode, Monica's Christmas tree is up in her apartment. After the party, Joey kisses Janine. In the next episode, he walks into Monica's apartment and says he just kissed her. However, Monica's tree is down and they have all changed their clothes. Surely if he just kissed her then it is still the same night of the party, therefore the tree should be up and Monica, Ross and Joey should be wearing the same clothes from the party.
Factual error: When Monica rolls an 8 to buy everyone a steak dinner, the one die is positioned with a 5 and 4 facing the camera (the 5 on the left, and 4 on the right). With the die that way round a 1 is always on top. There is no other way to get the 5 and 4 combo. This means that Monica had a 7 on the other die, That is impossible. And so she did not roll an 8.
Revealing mistake: When Monica and Phoebe are in Central Perk, Phoebe is looking through the list of ideas that Monica has come up with for the use of Phoebe's van. If you look closely (most obvious just after Phoebe says "let's plan the wedding reception") you can see that every single page of the notebook Phoebe is holding has the same thing written on it, instead of lots of different ideas that Monica is meant to have had.
Continuity mistake: Right before Ross and Rachel storm in, the girls show Joey how much their waxing stuff hurts. Phoebe starts putting the wax on Joey's inner arm, but then the shot changes and she is spreading in on the outer side. Also she slaps the strip on and the blue tab is hanging down off his arm, but then the shot changes again and it is on his arm with the other end of the strip hanging off the other side.
