The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Revealing mistake: In the scene when they confront the stripper at Chandler's office. Ross starts shouting about his grandmother's ring, and as Chandler says "way to be cool, man", you can see Joey ducking behind Ross, covering his mouth with laughter. A brief cut away, then back and he's standing with the others again looking serious.

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.

The One Where Ross and Rachel...You Know - S2-E15

Visible crew/equipment: At the start, when Chandler and Joey sink into their new Barcaloungers and proceed to recline, the camera can be seen at the right side of the screen. This can also be seen in the show's intro in later episodes. Additionally, set lighting was reflected on the TV screen earlier when Chandler had mentioned "Green Acres."

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 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. (00:05:05)

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

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. (00:09:00)

The One With Ross's Tan - S10-E3

Visible crew/equipment: After Ross goes in for his disastrous tan, when it cuts to Joey and Rachel walking into their apartment the hole (used for a camera angle) in the wall can be seen at the right side of the screen. As an aside, when Ross leaves Monica and Chandler's apartment later just as Rachel walks in, that hole is seen in the hallway and it's covered up.

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. (00:18:10)

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Monica is saying bye to Paul, Paul goes to the screen left but the stairs are at the screen right. (00:19:20)
