The One With The Boob Job - S9-E16

Revealing mistake: When Phoebe and Mike walk into Central Perk and announce they're moving in together, Chandler, Monica, and Ross, who's wearing a sweatshirt and khakis, are all sitting on the couch, and after Phoebe's comment about loading up the Volvo and wanting to be a soccer mom, it's David Schwimmer's stand-in, wearing a blue button-down shirt and jeans, who is seated beside Chandler.

The One Where Monica and Richard Are Just Friends - S3-E13

Factual error: Joey refers to several of his favorite parts of The Shining in 'code', including "all blank and no blank makes blank a blank blank, " which obviously refers to the "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" scene from the movie. However, that scene (and the one where Danny sees the two "blanks" in the hallway) is not found in the book; only in the movie.

The One with the Boobies - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: We've seen the arrangement of Joey and Chandler's bathroom in two previous episodes (1x3, The One with the Thumb, and 1x12, The One with the Dozen Lasagnas) with the sink opposite the bathroom door. In this episode the sink is relocated and the bath/shower is now opposite the bathroom door, for the rest of the series.

The One With The Blind Dates - S9-E14

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe says that they should not tell Ross that the date is cancelled so that he gets stood up, Joey says, "I hear that's bad" - implying that he has never been stood up so doesn't know how it feels. However, in TOW Two Parts (Part II), Ursula stands Joey up, and he takes it pretty bad.

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: In the one with Phoebe's rat babies, it is very obvious that the box has nothing in it. Also when she is in her apartment explaining about giving up the triplets she had for her brother she puts the box down on the table, yet when it cuts to Mike's face and Phoebe's realisation that she hadn't told him that before, the box is back on her lap.

The One with the East German Laundry Detergent - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: While Chandler is trying to break up with Janice, and Phoebe comes to help, a cameraman is visible in the background (outside of Central Perk) walking from right to left. The camera cuts away from the window angle, then cuts back, showing another cameraman walking from left to right.

The One with the Dozen Lasagnas - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is talking with Phoebe about Paolo,. she unrolls some kitchen paper and uses it as a tissue. Initially she's holding two torn halves attached to the roll, then when saying "He's a pig" it goes to a whole sheet not attached to any others, then when she sits down it's a whole sheet attached to the roll again. Plus when Phoebe sits too, in some shots the paper is on the table, in others it's not.

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Rachel takes the cat to apartment number 8 and Mr. Heckles opens the door. However, in this episode, the girls' apartment is labeled number 5 which means that number 8 is above them. In later episodes, Mr. Heckles always says that the noisy girls upstairs are keeping him from doing things. [It makes a bit more sense later on in the series when Monica and Rachel's appartment changes to number 20, which is when Mr Heckles starts to complain about the noise (although in the flash back episode when Phoebe is still living with Monica it seems apparent that they actually know Mr Heckles, which Phoebe shows no sign of when she and Rachel are looking for the owner of the cat).]

The One In Massapequa - S8-E18

Revealing mistake: Towards the start there's a stand-in for Jack Geller, as he is speaking to Ross and Rachel, who is obviously not Elliot Gould.

The One With The Ring - S6-E23

Visible crew/equipment: In the opening shot of Phoebe and Chandler in the "nine millionth" jewelry store looking for a ring, at the top of the screen we can see the tip of the boom mic moving in the wideshot. Then just as Chandler looks into the display case and says, "Ugly ring. Ugly ring. Ugly ring," the boom microphone can be seen moving around in the mirror's reflection behind him.

The One Where Phoebe Runs - S6-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When Phoebe bends over to tie her shoelace before the first run, and later when she surprises Rachel at the park while running, the mic pack bulge under Phoebe's top can be seen on her back, and when Rachel bends over there's a bulge at her back as well. It's also a bit noticeable the third time they run.

The One After Joey And Rachel Kiss - S10-E1

The One With The Prom Video - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: On the actual prom video tape, it only takes Ross a mere 12-13 seconds to run up the stairs, completely change outfits into his Dad's tux, and reappear ready-to-go on the stairway. This is impossibly fast. Also, it is not possible that the prom video tape was stopped and re-started during this time, which could account for the short duration. The reason is because Ross's mom was the one filming at this point. It turns out that she has no idea how to stop the video recorder. Thus, the video tape was one continuous recording, and we are expected to believe that Ross could change outfits within 12 seconds.

The One With Ross' Step Forward - S8-E11

Continuity mistake: It's obviously December, with the set decorations and Rachel's reference to sitting on multiple Santas' laps because she is randy from her pregnancy hormones. The characters establish that it's Rachel's fourth month of pregnancy...but she became pregnant about six weeks before Monica and Chandler's May 15 wedding. Her fourth month would have been in July, not December.
