Pam-I-am

The One With Joey's Fridge - S6-E19

Friends mistake picture

The One with the Monkey - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: Just after Chandler explains the situation to Janice, she goes off crying, and Ross takes a photo. The flash is much brighter than it should be - the screen's whited out to disguise a jump cut - after the flash Chandler's noticeably further back than he was before. (00:17:45)

The One with George Stephanopoulos - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Rachel explains to her friends about her job, for the first half of the scene there is a cushion behind her back. When Rachel says, "This is what I'm doing now, I've got this job." The cushion disappears. (00:07:40)

Dwarf

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: The amount of buttons undone on Pheobe's top by Joey changes after she says, "You didn't rip any buttons." The camera cuts to Joey then back, and it has changed. (00:18:00)

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Other mistake: When Joey and Chandler are in the cab on the bridge, Joey quickly stops the cab so Chandler can get out. However, on the screen behind, the background doesn't 'slow down' as Joey does, it just continues as if the cab is going at the same speed. Then, in the next shot, it is still. When Joey sets off again, the background stays the same and doesn't show that the cab is getting faster. (00:13:05)

The One Where They All Turn Thirty - S7-E14

Continuity mistake: In one of Monica's flashbacks, her hands move between shots with no time to do so. (00:10:50)

The One With The Kips - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: Rachel and Phoebe are in the Central Perk, talking about leaving the group, and a jacket and a handbag are hanging on the arm of the chair behind Rachel, slightly to her left. Between shots it changes from just the jacket, then just the handbag and so on. This continues throughout the scene when Ross comes in and Phoebe leaves. As she gets up you see both again, however Rachel does not move enough to just show one and hide the other. (00:16:00)

Friends mistake picture

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: In the Central Perk scene where Rachel is telling Ross she loves him, Ross is sitting at the small round table. The blue cup and the white cup with the lid move positions throughout the scene. (00:16:25)

Pam-I-am

The One Where Ross Moves In - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: At the very start of the episode, when Joey's showing Chandler National Geographic, Chandler has his left hand up by his face in one shot, then when the angle changes they're both clasped in his lap. (00:00:05)

Season 6 generally

Factual error: This mistake is from series 6 onwards, with Ross' new apartment: There is an impossibility with Ross' kitchen, but not all of the time. It depends on the layout of the hallway outside his apartment. If the hallway continues along for a bit before going left or right, then the kitchen should stick out. However, when the hallway is a dead end, the kitchen fits ok.

The One Where Paul's The Man - S6-E22

Continuity mistake: When we hear the recording of Chandler answering the phone, it sounds nothing like what Chandler actually said. (00:13:00)

The One With The Proposal, part 2 - S6-E25

Visible crew/equipment: When Chandler walks in and sees Monica, the boom mic is visible above Monica's head. (00:17:45)

The One With All The Haste - S4-E19

Revealing mistake: When they are using cards to bet on the Knicks tickets, watch Joey carefully as he goes to reshuffle the pack from behind the arm of the chair. It's obvious that there are two decks, and he is in fact switching them over. (00:13:40)

The One Where the Monkey Gets Away - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Rachel tells Ross that she lost Marcel, the bottle of wine has the cork sticking half way out. In the next scene which continues directly on from before as Ross and Rachel argue, the cork is back in the bottle. (00:10:15)

Dwarf

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: As Rachel goes to put the video on, Ross hangs his head. The camera cuts and now it isn't hanging. There was no time to move it between camera cut. (00:16:10)

The One With The Blind Dates - S9-E14

Visible crew/equipment: At the start in the coffee shop there are some stage lights visible in the coffee pot behind Joey. (00:00:05)

The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, when Joey walks into Rachel's hotel room, he is standing in the doorway. However, when Joey and Rachel kiss, there is enough space for the door to close. (00:47:05)

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Monica: What happened to your teeth?
Ross: I whitened them.
Chandler: Really?
Ross: Yeah, what... What do you think?
Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
Ross: Come on, seriously.
Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
Monica: How much longer?
Ross: Uh, uh... A day.
Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?
Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
Monica: She will be after tonight.

Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.
