Continuity mistake: In previous episodes we've seen that from the living room there's a short wall just inside Monica's bedroom (presumably to prevent a clear view inside, as her bedroom set isn't normally there). However in this episode when most of the gang are in her room, they're listening right by the door into the living room with nothing in the way. (00:11:25)Jon Sandys
Continuity mistake: Just after Rachel goes in to her surprise party in Chandler's apartment, she is talking with Ross and Chandler and says, "Both of them are here?" As she says this, she is facing forwards, yet in the next shot, she is suddenly facing Chandler. (00:08:15)
Revealing mistake: In the opening credits for both parts, fat Monica jumps on the couch and it lifts up on Chandler's end. If you look carefully at Chandler, you can see him holding one end of the couch with his hand and pressing up with his foot. (00:02:10)
Continuity mistake: Chandler is chasing Kathy down the street trying to get her attention. During a close-up of him running, just before the camera cuts away we see a guy's face on the left; when it cuts back to Chandler he runs for a while and then encounters the same guy (the dog-walker). Also, when he finally lands in front of Kathy, there is a bike rider coming towards them, but as the camera cuts back and forth between the two, the rider never passes them. (00:11:30)
Visible crew/equipment: Just after Chandler says "I'm the smallest person in the world", and Joey comes out of his room, check the top left of the screen - you can see a boom mic track Matt LeBlanc across the set, and the bottom of some stage lights in the middle. (00:14:40)Jon Sandys
Continuity mistake: During the scene where Phoebe is telling Rachel that Paolo made a pass at her, Rachel unrolls a long length of kitchen roll. During the scene there is a shot over her shoulder where we see that the kitchen roll is as normal and in the next shot we see it unrolled again. (00:15:30)tw_stuart
