The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Other mistake: When Phoebe and Ross are at JFK, some of the people who are at that airport are the same people who are also at Newark. It's particularly funny to see the people behind Ross and Phoebe at JFK when Phoebe claims they're on their honeymoon, and when it cuts to Rachel at Newark as she's looking for her boarding pass, those same people are there too.

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

Continuity mistake: While Joey's on the phone with Monica telling her the phony story that he and Phoebe smell gas coming from her apartment, on the table are the glass casserole dish and lid from the chicken parmigiana and a water bottle, but in the closeup there's only a ceramic blue bowl filled with eggplants and squash, and it keeps switching in the following shots,.

The One Where Heckles Dies - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: After Mr. Heckles has been taken away, in the last wideshot while everyone's still standing in the hallway, when this is viewed on the DVD (Warner Bros. S2 set) we can see a long black line on the floor (as noted in another mistake). The problem is that when this is viewed online on Netflix, even though we can see the very same area of floor, that black line has been blurred out. Weird that it wasn't edited on the DVD, and yet it was for the version available on Netflix.

The One With The Chicken Pox - S2-E23

Factual error: The symptoms (spots, fever, etc) of chicken pox only develop 2 - 3 weeks after exposure to the virus. Therefore, when Ross knew that Ben had chicken pox, Phoebe shouldn't have developed the condition until at least two weeks later, and Ryan certainly shouldn't have developed the disease until the end of his stay (as Phoebe was his only contact with the virus). (00:09:30)

The One With The Proposal, part 1 - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Richard is being seated next to Chandler and Monica, the amount of champagne in Chandler's glass changes. (00:09:20)

Pam-I-am

Show generally

Factual error: Phoebe's greatest love David leaves her to go to Minsk and comes and goes throughout the whole show, telling stories of Minsk on the way i.e. of the long months when the sun does not rise and the constant freezing cold. Minsk, being the capital of Belarus (although claimed to be in Russia for reasons explained in Corrections), is approximately as high up north as i.e. Wales and northern coast of Germany, and even during the winter months there is always daylight for several hours. Although winters in Eastern Europe are cold, the kind of coldness described by David would more believably happen in Siberia than Minsk, and the summers are just as nice and hot as everywhere in Europe.

The One With The Baby Shower - S8-E20

Visible crew/equipment: Monica chases after Rachel's Mom to apologise and she falls over and you can clearly see the safety mat move when Monica falls on to it - it's blue and just down the first step. (00:22:00)
