The One With Rachel's Book - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: Chandler and Monica are having dinner with her parents. He asks Jack how he and Judy got engaged. He starts, "Well I'd gotten Judy pregnant..." Then they talk about how Jack told Monica's friends a "scary story" about how Judy got pregnant because her method of birth control, her diaphragm, had malfunctioned (damaged by a dog). In the rest of the show, however, we are continually hearing that the firstborn, Ross, was "a medical marvel" and that they thought Judy was barren. This apparently is the main reason why they love Ross more than Monica.

The One Where Monica Sings - S9-E13

The One With The Birthing Video - S8-E15

Revealing mistake: When Monica gets out of her room to show Chandler her sexy clothing, as she opens the room's door, the buildings from across the street move. The scenario was a curtain and the wind that the door made when she opened it on the set made those curtains with the buildings printed in move. (00:06:25)

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: When Ross turns on the camera and sits down in front of it, "flirting" with it and drinking wine, what you can see on the little camera screen is very different from when they play the same clip on the TV, in which looks like he was sitting much closer to the camera then he actually was.
