The One With The Triplets - S5-E3

Factual error: Joey always grabs his back when he gets his pain from his kidney stones. This is a classic referral pattern for pain when the stones are in the kidney. However, the doctor says that the kidney stones were too close to the bladder. Stones in the ureters classically refers the pain to the groin area. (00:02:40)

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)

The One With The Vows - S7-E21

Continuity mistake: After Monica says "Oooh can we lie in our vows?" it cuts to Rachel then back to Monica leaning on her hands, but when it goes for a close up she is holding the pen in her right hand, there isn't enough time for her to naturally pick it up. (00:03:10)

The One With Joey's New Girlfriend - S4-E5

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)

Kathy: So, what did you do today?
Chandler: Well, I had an appointment to get my hair cut...
Kathy: Oh, it looks great!
Chandler: ...and then it got cancelled.
