The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Visible crew/equipment: After Joey describes Emma's funny Elmo cup to Phoebe, it cuts to Monica and Chandler walking in, and to the right of the door we can see the bulletin board is cut in size partially covering the hole in the wall. Later, when Phoebe and Joey leave after the wind-up toy race not only is this visible again, but through the hole we can see the other hole in Monica and Chandler's wall.

The One With The Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: When Ross is making out with Cheryl in her apartment, he gets chocolate syrup on his fingers. In the following shots the chocolate syrup has disappeared. While he wipes his hand on the sofa, no way that would leave his hand perfectly clean.

The One With Joey's Dirty Day - S4-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Ross and Joey are explaining phase two of Chandler's break up (going to strip clubs), the camera switches from the girls to Ross and Joey. Behind them is Chandler and Joey's kitchen window where you can briefly see a reflection of someone passing by (crew member). At first I thought it could have been Chandler, since he was not in the scene, but after a few moments you see that Chandler has been in the bathroom the whole time. (01:35:00 - 01:39:00)

The One With the Holiday Armadillo - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: During this episode, Chandler is having major problems slipping people dollar bills. He asks Monica if Richard (her ex) use to slip people notes. But in Series 2 there was an episode where Chandler and Joey were doing impressions of Richard; they impersonate him by slipping money to each other with no problems. So not only has Chandler forgotten that Richard used to slip money, he's also lost the ability to slip money himself. (00:05:05)

The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Revealing mistake: In the scene when they confront the stripper at Chandler's office. Ross starts shouting about his grandmother's ring, and as Chandler says "way to be cool, man", you can see Joey ducking behind Ross, covering his mouth with laughter. A brief cut away, then back and he's standing with the others again looking serious. Widescreen version only.

The One After Joey And Rachel Kiss - S10-E1

Factual error: The main part of the episode is played out in Chandler & Monica's hotel room (which is situated in between Rachel's and Ross's rooms). The window is opposite the audience and the door on the right. However whenever we see inside Ross's hotel room, he has a window opposite the audience as well. This is impossible as this should be where the hallway is to get to the main door to Chandler & Monica's room. Also, throughout the episode Monica, Chandler & Phoebe all listen through the walls (on either side of their room) to what the other friends are saying, meaning there must be no gap between Ross's and Chandler & Monica's rooms- making the window in his room geographically impossible.
