The One With The Tiny T-Shirt - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When Joey and Kate are talking for the first time, Joey is holding a mug. Between shots, sometimes he is holding the mug by the handle and sometimes by the mug, with the handle sticking out. (00:04:40)

The One The Morning After - S3-E16

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)

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)

The One After Vegas - S6-E1

Continuity mistake: When Ross and Rachel are in bed, and Rachel says she remembers laughing a lot, and Ross says "Then we didn't have sex," Rachel turns her head away from Ross twice. (00:03:10)

The One With Phoebe's Ex-Partner - S3-E14

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)
