The One with All the Poker - S1-E18

Visible crew/equipment: The friends are all at Ross' place. Marcel (the monkey) is dancing to the music just before they all play poker (before Rachel enters). However, the reflection of the animal trainer directing Marcel is visible in the TV screen.

The One With the Holiday Armadillo - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: During this episode, Chandler is having major problems slipping people dollar bills. He asks Monica if Richard (her ex) use to slip people notes. But in Series 2 there was an episode where Chandler and Joey were doing impressions of Richard; they impersonate him by slipping money to each other with no problems. So not only has Chandler forgotten that Richard used to slip money, he's also lost the ability to slip money himself.

The One Where Emma Cries - S9-E2

Continuity mistake: In the coffee house, when Ross and Joey are having a fight about Joey's proposal to Rachel, Ross does the "quote gesture" with his hands and Joey says he doesn't know what this means. In TOW the Secret Closet, Joey used it himself when talking to Chandler, in the scene where he asks him to bring a bobby pin to pick the closet's lock.

Continuity mistake: The door to Monica's bedroom is shown open, then closed, then open, and then closed during the scene in which Paul arrives for their date.

The One Where Dr. Ramoray Dies - S2-E18

Continuity mistake: When Monica is trying to cheer Joey up, she tells him that she straightened out his shower curtain so it wouldn't get mildew. But in a previous episode (The One Where Eddie Moves In), Joey gives the gang a tour of his new apartment; the shower is clearly visible in the bathroom, and it has a door.

The One Where Ross Is Fine - S10-E2

Factual error: If Ross really was holding the sizzling fajitas like that for as long as he was without any gloves, he would be in the emergency room.

The One With The Prom Video - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: The prom video has just ended and the TV screen goes blank. Monica had been sitting next to Rachel, but in the reflection of the TV screen you can see her beginning to stand up. We cut back to a 'real' view, and she's sitting down; then she stands up again.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Chandler and Monica's wedding day is May 15th 2001, as mentioned on the show. In Series 9, some time in January 2003 (as it is after the characters have celebrated Christmas and New Year), it is established that Rachel has been on maternity leave for five months, which means she took her leave in August. Since she realised she was pregnant in May the year before, when Monica and Chandler got married, this means her pregnancy lasted from April/May 2001 to August/September 2002, a time span of 16 to 17 months. This cannot be explained by saying that episodes don't have to take place in the month they air, as we are given the dates by the characters on the show.

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: When Chandler is choking on the gum, you can see it is still in the left side of his mouth in a huge lump.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Continuity mistake: In "The One with the Sharks", Phoebe talks to Joey about how he's never been in a long term relationship. He has been, though - Angela Delveccio, who he went out with for three years.
