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)Jon Sandys
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)
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)
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.
