The One With Ross's Wedding, part 2 - S4-E24

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Monica and Ross discuss how Emily has decided to call off the wedding after Monica suggests they postpone the wedding, Monica is wearing a black watch on her left wrist. This disappears and re-appears a number of times throughout the scene. (00:15:00)

The One Where Ross Dates a Student - S6-E18

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Ross' girlfriend leaves the Central Perk, Ross walks towards the couch. Just before Rachel starts talking, the stage lights can be seen reflected in the glass above the entrance. (00:17:00)

The One Where Rachel Tells... - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Monica and Chandler are trying to get in the first class lounge, Monica has a green bag on her left shoulder. It switches mid-scene to her right hand, and then appears back on her left shoulder. (00:08:40)

Pam-I-am

The One With The Dollhouse - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: When Monica is telling Rachel that guys always say they are going to call, but it doesn't mean they will, she is eating yogurt; in the next shot she has a cup ready to drink out of. (00:14:30)

Pam-I-am

The One With Monica's Thunder - S7-E1

Continuity mistake: Chandler is in Rachel's apartment after he has just left Monica; he says to Rachel, "You look great", then Rachel puts her hair behind her ears. The camera cuts to Chandler, then straight back to Rachel, and her hair is not behind her ears. (00:05:05)

The One With The Ring - S6-E23

Continuity mistake: Paul finally opens up, and cries like a baby to Rachel. While talking to her at the breakfast bar in the kitchen (when Rachel is trying to distract him with sex), he's wearing a white linen shirt that constantly changes between tear-stained and wrinkled to ironed and clean. (00:14:35)

The One With The Truth About London - S7-E16

Continuity mistake: When Rachel goes to Carol's house and tries to tell Ben to stop playing pranks, her bag changes from being on her shoulder to in her hand in almost every shot. (00:12:25)

The One With Phoebe's Dad - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: Pheobe says to Chandler that there is no seatbelt as the paramedics had to cut it. Yet a few seconds later you can see a seatbelt. (00:12:25)

The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding, Part 2 - S7-E24

The One Where Rachel Has a Baby, part 2 - S8-E24

Continuity mistake: While Rachel is having her baby she grabs Ross by the shirt and says 'you do it for me' in the next shot her hand is no-where near Ross. She couldn't have put her arm down that quickly. (00:33:50)

The One With Joey's Fridge - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: The handle to the fridge door is on the left, so when it opens the inside is visible. In earlier episodes the handle was on the right and it opened out towards the room, blocking the inside from view. (00:00:05)

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: When Chandler and Monica are trying to call Greg and Jennie, the water bottles on the table move around. Phoebe and Joey didn't move them, they are drinking from the cans. (00:05:30)

Pam-I-am

The One With The Truth About London - S7-E16

Other mistake: Right at the very end, when Joey is in the fat-suit and picks up a piece of food and says "How you doin'?" he doesn't put it in his mouth, he just lifts it to his lips, stops, and tries to stay still. If this had been a freeze on the part of the director then fair enough, but it isn't as he and particularly Monica are still moving. It just looks rather corny and amateur, as though they are waiting for the "cut" to be called. (00:28:00)

The One With the Holiday Armadillo - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: When Ross is on the couch telling Ben about Chanukah, Ben's hair varies from shot to shot. In the first shot it's flat and in the next shot it's spiked up at the front. His hair stays spiked up for a few shots and then returns to flat. (00:06:00)

The One With Phoebe's Birthday Dinner - S9-E5

Deliberate mistake: Across the whole show, whenever Ross closes his apartment, the door remains unlocked; but in this episode, when he and Rachel go outside, the door locks itself. (00:07:00)

The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Plot hole: Judy says that both her parents died very young. However, we saw her mother's death in "The One Where Nana Dies Twice" and she was quite old. Also, in Season 7, 'TOW Phoebe's cookies', Jack Geller tells Chandler that his father in law still thinks he is a lawyer and says "So if you ever see me giving them legal advice, just nod along," implying that Judy's parents were both still alive.

The One With Unagi - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: In the beginning in the coffee house, Ross is explaining to Phoebe and Rachel what 'Unagi' is. The blonde lady behind Phoebe is wearing light blue jeans. She then puts a brown leather jacket on, however in the next shot it has gone, only to reappear and disappear again. (00:03:20)

The One With The 'Cuffs - S4-E3

Joanna: What are you doing?
Chandler: I'm getting dressed.
Joanna: Why?
Chandler: Because when I go outside naked, people throw garbage at me.
