The One Where They're Going To PARTY! - S4-E9

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. (00:17:10)

The One Where Chandler Can't Cry - S6-E14

Continuity mistake: In the previous episode Monica had a very bad cold. This episode carries on immediately after the end of the last one (Monica's still in her dressing gown from earlier), but Monica isn't coughing or sneezing at all anymore. (00:00:05)

The One The Morning After - S3-E16

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. (00:11:10)

The One Where Phoebe Hates PBS - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene where Rachel is checking the mail and is walking over to Monica's room, she has a pair of pumps on, then once she has walked in on Monica and Monica runs after her to say she was taking a nap, Rachel is wearing a pair of backless high-heeled sandals, then when Joey and Ross come in, Rachel is wearing the pumps again (we see this when Ross says "I had to talk loud because the movie was loud"). (00:00:10)

The One with Two Parts: Part 2 - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: At the end of the scene where Phoebe goes to speak to Ursula, Ursula has some food on her fork. In the next shot it is gone. (00:16:10)

Dwarf

The One Where Joey Dates Rachel - S8-E12

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.). (00:07:05)

The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding, Part 1 - S7-E23

Visible crew/equipment: At the very start after Monica says, "We're gonna have lunch at Mom's" when the camera switches to a wider shot look above Joey's head. You can see the boom mic track him across the stage. (00:00:25)

Continuity mistake: In the opening coffee house scene Ross is holding a red folder, then it disappears and then he has it again. (00:02:05)

Pam-I-am

The One With The Dollhouse - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Phoebe are looking at the dollhouse, Monica says "I don't want a ghost for the house." When she says this, the camera is behind Phoebe whose right hand is up in the air. The shot then changes to Phoebe from the front, and her hand has instantly gone to her lap. (00:04:40)

David Mercier

Melissa

The One In Barbados, part 1 - S9-E23

Factual error: Ross' computer is a Powerbook G4 which is totally immune to PC only viruses - Chandler opened up an infected email that contained the Anna Kournikova virus. (00:12:45)

Dan Sgambelluri

The One With The Princess Leia Fantasy - S3-E1

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. (00:11:00)

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. (00:02:25)

The One with the Dozen Lasagnas - S1-E12

Visible crew/equipment: When Ross is on the balcony trying to comfort Rachel after she has split up with Paolo, we see a couple of shots from the balcony looking into Monica's apartment. If you look at the top of the screen you can see where the walls of the set end, and all the stage lights hanging from the ceiling of the studio. (00:18:35)

Friends mistake picture

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. (00:16:30)
