Friends

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Revealing mistake: While Monica and Rachel are talking about Chandler's "jollies to Jaws" Rachel's wearing a colorful flowery top, and after Joey walks in just as Monica takes her seat at the table in the closeup, it's Jennifer Aniston's stand-in, wearing a blue top, who is seated beside Monica. (Viewed in widescreen).

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

Audio problem: At the start when Joey comes into Monica's apartment and does his little dance number, watch his mouth on his way out; it's totally out of sync with what he is saying.

The One With The Prom Video - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: The prom video has just ended and the TV screen goes blank. Monica had been sitting next to Rachel, but in the reflection of the TV screen you can see her beginning to stand up. We cut back to a 'real' view, and she's sitting down; then she stands up again.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Chandler and Monica's wedding day is May 15th 2001, as mentioned on the show. In Series 9, some time in January 2003 (as it is after the characters have celebrated Christmas and New Year), it is established that Rachel has been on maternity leave for five months, which means she took her leave in August. Since she realised she was pregnant in May the year before, when Monica and Chandler got married, this means her pregnancy lasted from April/May 2001 to August/September 2002, a time span of 16 to 17 months. This cannot be explained by saying that episodes don't have to take place in the month they air, as we are given the dates by the characters on the show.

The One With The Ring - S6-E23

Visible crew/equipment: In the opening shot of Phoebe and Chandler in the "nine millionth" jewelry store looking for a ring, at the top of the screen we can see the tip of the boom mic moving in the wideshot. Then just as Chandler looks into the display case and says, "Ugly ring. Ugly ring. Ugly ring," the boom microphone can be seen moving around in the mirror's reflection behind him.
