The One with All the Poker - S1-E18

Revealing mistake: When Rachel is doing the shuffling trick, it is clear that it is a trick deck. The cards, whilst flying from one hand to the other, change the angle of flight in mid-air, and some of them even move backwards as she moves her hands further apart from each other. This could only happen if the cards were connected to each other.

The One With The Ballroom Dancing - S4-E4

Other mistake: Right at the end of the episode, Phoebe's got a job interview. We see the outside of a massage parlour, but the name on the awning has been superimposed - it moves about a bit while the shot itself is still.

The One After 'I do' - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: Just as Ross and Mona are about to dance, her arms are crossed. The camera cuts and they are on her hips.

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

Continuity mistake: When Joey refuses to give Chandler the chair, Phoebe gets hummus on her dress, but in some scenes the stain is much smaller than others.

The One With Ross' New Girlfriend - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Paulo comes out of Rachel's bedroom to greet the group, the robe he is wearing is obviously untied and hanging open. After we see how everyone reacted to him being there, we again see Paulo but now the robe is securely tied even though neither he nor Rachel changed positions between shots.

The One With Joey's New Girlfriend - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: In the bar, Kathy is trying to set Chandler up with one of her friends. When the camera is facing Chandler, we see Kathy's hand rubbing Joey's back, but when it cuts to a front shot of Joey and Kathy, her arm is down in front of her. Then without having had enough time to move, her elbow is up on the table and she is holding hands with Joey.

The One with the Fake Monica - S1-E21

Revealing mistake: In the scene when Marcel has to get on the plane. It is obvious that David Schwimmer is just shaking his leg and Marcel is doing nothing besides sit on David's foot. It is especially obvious in the second shot.

The One After Vegas - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: In the previous episode, Ross rings the helpline of the makers of the pen and is told the pen won't come off. Yet in this episode it vanishes from Ross and Rachel's faces between getting up and going to breakfast.

The One With Joey's Porsche - S6-E5

The One With Joey's Dirty Day - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mr Heston confronts Joey about using the shower, Mr Heston points at Joey from a seated position. As the shots switch Mr Heston's "pointing" hand also switches.

The One With The Blind Dates - S9-E14

Factual error: Monica takes an ovulation test to see if she is still ovulating. The ovulation test only works before you ovulate (usually 24 to 36 hrs), to detect the LH surge that comes before you ovulate. Once you ovulate that surge is gone and the test will not work.

Pam-I-am

The One Where Rachel Tells... - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: In the scene after Rachel has told Ross, she finishes the magazine and tells him there is no pressure on him, his hand is on his chin, then almost instantly his hand is down.

Pam-I-am

The One With the Male Nanny - S9-E6

Continuity mistake: When Ross walks in on Sandy and Joey playing the recorders, Joey puts his recorder down on the table in front of him, when Ross storms out of the room, the recorder is in a totally different position and also on the far end of the table.

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Giant Poking Device - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: The giant poking device is supposedly long enough to reach right across to the next building, but after they wake up Ugly Naked Guy, Joey says "retract the device!" and after pulling back about a foot of it the end suddenly pops up at the bottom of the screen.

The One With All The Haste - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: Phoebe comes in wearing Santa pants. When Joey and Chandler point this out, Chandler's legs are crossed or uncrossed, depending on the camera angle.

The One With The Late Thanksgiving - S10-E8

Continuity mistake: When Rachel and Phoebe are talking in the Baby Beauty Contest and Rachel is holding Emma, Emma's head instantly changes position between shots several times, often going through 180 degrees. Clearly they couldn't get her to do the scene in one take and therefore the editing suffers.

David Mercier

The One With The Rumor - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: In the episode with Brad Pitt in it, when Ross and Will are standing by the fridge and Rachel comes in, Will's right hand jumps around after he crushes the decoration on the wall.

The One With Phoebe's Birthday Dinner - S9-E5

Factual error: The restaurant refuses to take anyone's orders until they're all seated, which means that the group is sitting, occupying a table, without earning any revenue for the restaurant. There isn't a restaurant in NYC that would have such a policy, since it basically guarantees that a table becomes a revenue vacuum. (It also makes for very unhappy customers, but that doesn't qualify it as a factual error, since some restaurants might be actually stupid enough to not care about their return customers).

The One with the Thumb - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Monica is first explaining to her friend in the restaurant that her friends don't like anyone she dates, she is putting food onto a plate. The food changes between shots.

Add time

The One Where Rachel is Late - S8-E22

Plot hole: The times in this episode vary a lot. Monica and Phoebe first bet about Rachel giving birth, then it goes to the scene with Joey and Chandler at the movies. It then returns to Monica and Phoebe the next day with Monica losing the bet. However, a little while later, it goes back a day and shows Joey and Chandler at the movie premiere again.
