The One With Joey's New Brain - S7-E15

Other mistake: In the scene where Phoebe and Rachel are talking in Phoebe's apartment and Tom is waiting at the door, after Phoebe says "you are such a good friend", we hear someone say Tom, meaning its Tom's turn to talk. (00:20:55)

The One With The Apothecary Table - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: In the very first scene when Janine and Joey are kissing at the table in Central Perk, the blue cup by Joey's arm moves forward a few inches without him touching it. (00:01:25)

Pam-I-am

The One with the Dozen Lasagnas - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: When Rachel throws Paulo's clothes over the balcony, they land on the corner of the building, yet the balcony isn't near the corner as there are bedrooms between the place where she throws them and the edge of the building. (00:17:15)

Dwarf

The One Where Nana Dies Twice - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Just before the group of guys at the funeral shout about the football, there is a glass of wine next to Monica's mother which is about 1/3 full. After a brief cut away, the next shot shows the glass is almost empty. (00:19:05)

Dwarf

The One With The Dollhouse - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: When Joey is talking to the understudy, he is holding a cup. It disappears right when she invites him for a drink. (00:07:20)

Pam-I-am

The One After 'I do' - S8-E1

Plot hole: Chandler and Ross are surprised to notice that Joey has very small feet. It's well beyond suspension of disbelief to think that at the least Chandler (who, apart from being his best friend, has been his roommate for 8 years) has never noticed the size of Joey's feet before. (00:11:20)

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

Continuity mistake: When Rachel says Ross can be involved as much as he likes, his arm moves from by his chin to in his lap when the camera cuts. (00:11:25)

The One Where Joey Tells Rachel - S8-E16

Continuity mistake: When Monica is talking to Ross about how Joey feels, there is a shot of Monica bending down to talk to Ross, and some magazines on a table. At the end of the scene the magazines have changed place. (00:05:30)

The One Where Ross Dates a Student - S6-E18

Continuity mistake: When Monica is standing in front of Phoebe, asking if the smell from Joey's is bothering her, the shots of Monica from the front show her arms held out in front of her, but when the shot changes her arms are crossed. This happens twice. (00:11:15)

The One with the Sonogram at the End - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When we first see Ross at the museum, the woman he works with is holding a rock. In the first shot, she is holding onto it with her right hand at the bottom and just before the shot changes she turns away from Ross. In the next shot, she is facing Ross again and her right hand has moved on top of the rock. (00:02:05)

Dwarf

The One With All The Rugby - S4-E15

Factual error: Before Ross goes out to play the second half of the rugby game, Emily gives him some tips on how to hurt the other guys. She singles out one of the guys, saying he doesn't wear a cup. These guys are all English players who love rugby. Rugby players would NEVER wear a cup for rugby is more of a grinding sport than hit and miss. These guys would be crazy to wear a cup.

2

The One With The Fertility Test - S9-E21

Continuity mistake: When Charlie tells Ross about the Met, Ross goes sitting next to her, and his hands are empty when he says: 'Joey really knows his art, huh?' When Charlie says: 'Not so much' Ross suddenly holds a book in his hands. Then, when the shot changes, the book is gone again. It keeps (dis)appearing during the scene. (00:20:35)

The One With The Metaphorical Tunnel - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When Ross shows G.I. Joe to Ben, the Barbie's legs are pointing towards the refrigerator. In the next shot, they are suddenly pointing the opposite way. (00:13:50)

Friends mistake picture

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: In The One With All The Kissing, Phoebe grabs a photo of the other 5 by the Tower of London. When we see a shot of her a few seconds later drawing herself into the photo, it's a different photograph. (00:07:25)

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 2 - S4-E24

Other mistake: In the episode with Ross's wedding to Emily, Joey is talking on a cell phone with Phoebe as he walks down the aisle. Joey holds the phone out to Ross saying 'it's Phoebe', and one can clearly see that the phone's screen is completely blank. The phone isn't even turned on. (00:39:20)

The One Where Ross Hugs Rachel - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Rachel is all happy that the three of them are going to live together, her arms keep changing position throughout the scene. (00:08:35)

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Monica: What happened to your teeth?
Ross: I whitened them.
Chandler: Really?
Ross: Yeah, what... What do you think?
Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
Ross: Come on, seriously.
Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
Monica: How much longer?
Ross: Uh, uh... A day.
Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?
Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
Monica: She will be after tonight.

The One With The Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Question: When Joey asks why he can't give Kathy the pen, Chandler says, "Because she's not eleven. And it's not the seventh night of Chanukah." What is Chandler talking about when he says, "It's not the seventh night of Chanukah?"

Answer: Usually by the seventh night of Hanukkah you don't know what to get the other person, and you will probably resort to getting the other person something insignificant. Chandler is basically saying that the pen is a stupid gift.

Answer: Chanukah is a Jewish celebration that occurs around the same time as the Christian Christmas. The celebration lasts for eight days and it is customary to give a small gift on each of the eight days. There is no special gift required and the line about it being "the seventh night" of Chanukah is just Chandler's sarcasm.
