Friends

Season 4 generally

Factual error: In season 4 generally, Phoebe has the shortest pregnancy ever. She gets pregnant as the boys win the girls' apartment. In the next episode Ross meets Emily, after 6 weeks he gets engaged to Emily and they then choose to get married 4 weeks later. Phoebe would only be 10-12 weeks pregnant by the time they fly to London, not in her third trimester.

The One With Ross's Grant - S10-E6

Continuity mistake: When Charlie and Benjamin are at the restaurant, Benjamin says "I can't believe you chose this restaurant. You remember that night?" To which Charlie replies "I can't believe they let us back in here." However in "The One with the Fertility Test" Charlie has never been to New York before.

The One Where Rachel Quits - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: In the very first shot of Chandler and Rachel sitting on the couch, Chandler has his legs crossed left over right, but it cuts to the closeup and his legs are crossed right over left, then it's back to left over right.

The One With All The Rugby - S4-E15

Factual error: Rugby starts with a kickoff and not with a scrum, only the forwards on the team participate in the scrum not the whole team, and there is no scrum half to retrieve the ball from the scrum. The scrum took far too long. There is no structure to the scrum like there should be (props, locks, flankers etc). He doesn't seem to have a team and for some reason everyone just jumps on him, there is no line with one team and another it just seems like a free for all which is nothing like rugby, rugby halves are ended when the ball goes out of play which does not happen here - he just decides to end it for no real reason. Several fouls are committed in the ruck such as coming in from the sides, diving off their feet and holding onto the ball which aren't being penalised. You're not allowed to kick people or harm them intentionally in rugby, there are no cups in rugby but there are mouth guards, which no one is wearing.

The One Where Ross Is Fine - S10-E2

Audio problem: When Ross is drunk and talking to Rachel, Joey and Charlie on the couch in his apartment; he begins to say "Where do you think we can go?" but his mouth does not move. (00:12:10)

Continuity mistake: While Monica's preparing her shake in the blender she asks Rachel about the anniversary dinner, and when Rachel tells her that she and Ross broke up, Monica throws the blender lid and it flies over the counter, but in the next shot the lid is back in Monica's hand, and then it vanishes again.

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

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. (00:21:25)

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

Character mistake: After Susan Sarandon slaps Joey the first time, after he tells her that her character is dying on DOOL, she turns away and right before she is off camera she smiles, instead of maintaining her anger. (00:06:05)

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.
