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 All The Rugby - S4-E15

Factual error: Before Ross goes out to play the second half of the rugby game, Emily gives him some tips on how to hurt the other guys. She singles out one of the guys, saying he doesn't wear a cup. These guys are all English players who love rugby. Rugby players would NEVER wear a cup for rugby is more of a grinding sport than hit and miss. These guys would be crazy to wear a cup.

The One With Rachel's Other Sister - S9-E8

Revealing mistake: When Chandler grabs his bag he accidentally lets the box full of wedding china fall off the stool. Watch closely (play in slow-motion). The box falls on the floor and shattered china falls out. The china was ALREADY broken before it falls on the ground. (00:23:00)

The One With Rachel's Phone Number - S9-E9

Continuity mistake: Near the end when Rachel runs after Phoebe and Mike to ask Mike if the guy from the bar called, she leaves the apartment with her bag, which she places over her left shoulder. When she is talking to Mike the bag is gone, and then when she returns to the apartment she has her bag again. (00:20:30)

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)

The One With The Jam - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When they are talking about sperm donation, Joey is eating a cracker with jam on it. Between shots it instantly rotates in his hand. You can tell because the jam goes from being on the top to the bottom side, and because of the way he is holding it you can see there is only jam on one side. (00:14:15)

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.

David Cañedo Mesinas

Answer: The painting doesn't have a name, and if it does it is never mentioned in this episode.
