Continuity mistake: There is a scene in Central Perk where Rachel confronts Chandler about all the kissing he's been doing. She raises her hands up in front of her and tells Chandler to hold on to stop him from getting up from the couch. As he goes to sit back down on the couch she lowers her hands to her lap. The shot cuts to an angle behind Rachel's chair and she is lowering her hands again.
Other mistake: In series 8, 'The One with the Videotape,' when they are watching Ross and Rachel on the TV and when Rachel (on the video) is discussing the invitations and how Monica didn't shut up about sending them, Chandler points at the TV and makes a kind-of confused face. A few minutes later, just before he says 'Did you do it on our invitations?' the same shot of him pointing and pulling a face comes up.
Continuity mistake: When Ross and Rachel are arguing about Rachel telling Phoebe about his fantasy, Ross takes a popsicle out of the freezer and bites it. In the next shot, the popsicle is whole again, with no bites, and Ross takes another 'first' bite out of it.
Continuity mistake: Just after Marcel switches the TV to "SAP," Joey comes back and tells Chandler about Ursula and how she gave him extra food. Chandler is holding a bottle of water, and before the camera cuts to Joey it is open, but when he is talking it is capped, and finally when Chandler says "Score," the bottle is open again.
Continuity mistake: When Monica is asking Zack if he or any of his blood relatives has diabetes, Zack's cutlery changes position twice. In the shot facing him he has his fork in his left hand and his knife in his right. When it changes to a side shot, he is gesturing and doesn't have anything in his hands, without having time to put the cutlery down. Then when it cuts back to a front shot, he picks up his fork, which is now on his right, and starts eating.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode where they are watching Ross through the window, Phoebe is leaning forward and standing to the left of the pole next to Chandler. When the shot changes to Ross coming through the door, she is suddenly standing up straight and is now behind Joey and Chandler.
Continuity mistake: When Ross arrives at the classroom late and out of breath, he tosses his jacket at the hook, but it falls to the floor, and he walks behind the desk anyway. In the next wideshot of the class, as Ross still stands behind the desk, the coat is up on the hook. (Viewed on broadcast TV as a rerun, so there may be a missing shot that was removed for extra commercial time.).
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.
