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 with the Evil Orthodontist - S1-E20

Other mistake: This is the episode where a guy across from Monica's apartment is spying on them. Joey says he caught him spying into his and Chandler's apartment yesterday. This is impossible considering the layout of the building i.e. the fact that the only part of Joey and Chandler's apartment which faces toward the spying guy has the stairwell and hallway blocking it from view (not to mention the protruding part of Monica's apartment). There is another window in Joey's apartment but it faces completely the wrong direction. The bathroom has no windows. The angles just don't add up. (00:00:40)

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)

The One With All The Wedding Dresses - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: When Chandler tells Joey that he should go to a sleep clinic, Monica puts her coffee cup on the table, but then it reappears in her hands and disappears repeatedly. (00:02:00)

Pam-I-am

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

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

The One Where They All Turn Thirty - S7-E14

Continuity mistake: Rachel's birthday has always been in May, not February/March. (00:16:00)

Friends mistake picture

The One With Ross's Grant - S10-E6

Continuity mistake: When Aisha Tyler and Greg Kinnear put one hand on Ross's face, they bring those hands together and they interlock fingers, then the camera changes positions and they interlock fingers again. (00:22:20)

Melissa

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Monica puts the turkey on her head, she puts a hat on it. In the next shot the hat is not at an angle and must be held in place. (00:19:40)

The One Where Rachel Quits - S3-E10

The One Where Emma Cries - S9-E2

Continuity mistake: When Ross and Rachel are talking about which muffin she wants, her sleeves move up and down her arms with the different shots. (00:04:45)

Friends mistake picture

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)

The One That Could Have Been, part 2 - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is in the hospital bed and Monica gives her a cup of herbal tea, Phoebe is shouting at her for putting honey in it. As the shot changes back and forth the spoon in the cup changes position. (00:02:00)

The One Where Eddie Won't Go - S2-E19

Revealing mistake: When the men are repossessing Joey's things, a view of New York can be seen through the window, but it's clearly a picture. (00:08:00)

The One With The Yeti - S5-E6

Revealing mistake: When Monica and Rachel apologise to Danny, as he shuts his door for the second time the set wall visibly shakes. (00:07:55)

The One With The Hypnosis Tape - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: Just after Chandler has used the chapstick, in a shot from the side the stick is in his right hand, and then in the next shot he is instantly putting a tissue (which wasn't visible before) up to his lips, and the stick has moved to his left hand. (00:10:45)
