The One With The Truth About London - S7-E16

The One With a Chick. And a Duck. - S3-E21

Revealing mistake: When Joey comes in with the shoebox containing the chick, it looks like a normal sized box, about 5 - 6 inches deep. But when Joey takes the lid off, we can see that the chick must be elevated on something inside the box, since we can see its entire body. Surely, the chick can't be more than 6 inches tall? (00:05:05)

The One Where Rachel Goes Back To Work - S9-E11

The One Where Chandler Doesn't Like Dogs - S7-E8

The One With Two Parties - S2-E22

Other mistake: In the scene where Rachel is talking to Chandler in the hall, after she says "the 4th of July", it cuts to a shot from behind Rachel's head. If you look on the right hand side of the screen, you can see a piece of wood in the foreground. This probably came from Joey and Chandler's doorframe, through which this view would have been filmed. In addition, this door was supposed to have been closed throughout the entire duration of this scene. (00:17:55)

The One Where Rachel is Late - S8-E22

Plot hole: The times in this episode vary a lot. Monica and Phoebe first bet about Rachel giving birth, then it goes to the scene with Joey and Chandler at the movies. It then returns to Monica and Phoebe the next day with Monica losing the bet. However, a little while later, it goes back a day and shows Joey and Chandler at the movie premiere again. (00:09:00)

The One With The Kips - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: In this episode, they say the reason Kip was phased out was because he dated Monica and they broke up badly. However, in the first season (in the "Dozen Lasagnes" episode) Chandler says Kip left because he got married. (00:13:50)

The One With the List - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Ross, Joey and Chandler are in Chandler and Joey's appartment talking about Ross' decision. Chandler has a green bottle in his hand. He puts it down behind the computer by the microwave, but when Ross starts listing Rachel's "cons" the bottle's suddenly at the opposite end of the counter. (00:07:40 - 00:08:25)

1

The One With Monica's Boots - S8-E10

Continuity mistake: When Joey walks back into the apartment (with his eyes covered) to get the sandwich, he walks by the Fussball-table, and there's nothing on it. When he walks away you see a purse lying on the cooker. Then, when the shot changes to Dina and Rachel, you see the purse lying on the fussball table. (00:10:35)

The One with the Stoned Guy - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When the stoned guy says they should make macaroni and cheese, Monica holds out her hands. In the next shot, her hands are clasped together. (00:18:50)

The One With The Yeti - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is talking to Phoebe about cremating the coat there is a mirror behind her with a laptop reflected in it. The reflection shows it switched on, but in the wider shots it is switched off. (00:09:15)

The Last One (1) - S10-E19

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Chandler walk into the apartment with the twins, 2 very bright yellow soothers keep appearing and disappearing from the babies' mouths. (00:18:50)

The One with the Monkey - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: When Rachel says about her 6th date with Paulo, she is holding a decoration for the tree. In the next shot the decoration changes to a much larger object. Then, in the next shot, as she hands it to Monica, it has turned back to the original shape. (00:05:40)

The One With The Mugging - S9-E15

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Joey is in Monica's apartment eating bacon, you see Joey reach for the bacon from the front, then in the next shot (side on) you see Joey reach for the bacon again. (00:02:10)

The One with Two Parts: Part 1 - S1-E16

Visible crew/equipment: At the end of this episode when Rachel falls off the balcony, when we are looking out from Mr. Heckles' apartment, a boom mic is visible at the top of the screen just above him. (00:21:30)

2

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: When Phoebe says something like, "Look, the last candle is about to go out", she starts counting down, saying "-47,-48..." and you can see Monica looking at the candle. But there is a light source behind her (it can't be a candle because she is looking at the last candle). (00:20:05)

The One Where Joey Speaks French - S10-E13

Visible crew/equipment: When Joey is calling Phoebe after she walked out of his apartment, the shadow of a camera can be seen on Monica's door. (00:08:05)

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Monica: What happened to your teeth?
Ross: I whitened them.
Chandler: Really?
Ross: Yeah, what... What do you think?
Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
Ross: Come on, seriously.
Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
Monica: How much longer?
Ross: Uh, uh... A day.
Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?
Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
Monica: She will be after tonight.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.
