The One Where Chandler Can't Cry - S6-E14

Continuity mistake: In this episode Chandler says he can't cry, but in series 4 when he broke up with Kathy he was seen crying, and other times - it's just this episode it's apparently an issue.

The One With Phoebe's Birthday Dinner - S9-E5

Factual error: The restaurant refuses to take anyone's orders until they're all seated, which means that the group is sitting, occupying a table, without earning any revenue for the restaurant. There isn't a restaurant in NYC that would have such a policy, since it basically guarantees that a table becomes a revenue vacuum. (It also makes for very unhappy customers, but that doesn't qualify it as a factual error, since some restaurants might be actually stupid enough to not care about their return customers).

The One With The Giant Poking Device - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Chandler confronts Janice about Joey seeing her kissing her ex-husband, Janice begins to hyperventilate. However, right before Chandler gives her the paper bag, Janice spins around and places the receipt in her mouth. Conveniently, after she begins breathing into the bag, she "chokes" on a receipt.

The One With The Triplets - S5-E3

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene with Joey filming Phoebe and Phoebe saying, "Please don't hurt me," Joey zooms out and you can see the camera that is just about to film them. (00:00:35)

Show generally

Other mistake: In 'The One With The Ick Factor' (Season One) Monica states that she is 26 years old. This episode takes place in 1994/95. However there are numerous other episodes such as 'The One With All The Thanksgivings' that show Monica and Rachel (who are the same age and in the same class) still being in High School in 1988. In 'The One Where The Stripper Cries' the two have to sneak into a college party in 1987 as they are still high school age. They should be at least 19 or 20 in 1987/88.

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: Monica and Chandler are deciding what to do about Phoebe's flirting; the shot cuts to her and Rachel, and Rachel's right hand is on her chin. In the next shot, it's her left hand on her chin. (00:12:00)

The One With The Ball - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: When Rachel mentions the cat's name, Ross has the ball. The camera does an instant cut, and Joey now has the ball. Ross did not throw the ball, as you hear the ball being caught every other time. (00:04:50)

The One Where Nana Dies Twice - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe say 'what a great day' she starts to put her hand to her face, then in the next shot, her sunglasses have jumped to her hand. (00:14:20)

Dwarf

The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: In the part where Ross is on the phone with Julie he says "Say hi to Julie in New Mexico." When everyone is shouting "Hi Julie" look above their heads and you will see a boom mic dip into the shot. (00:03:10)

The One With The Lesbian Wedding - S2-E11

Audio problem: During the lesbian wedding, whenever we see a shot of Carol and Susan while the minister is talking, her mouth is not moving. (00:18:35)

Brad Premium member

The One Where the Monkey Gets Away - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Rachel asks Marcel 'did you poo in the shoe?' Marcel is leaning on Rachel's arm. In the next shot he has vanished. (00:06:10)

Dwarf

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: At the start of the scene where the group disclose the weirdest place they've had sex is, Monica has her hands together on her lap. In the next shot, they are underneath her legs. (00:05:30)

Dwarf

The One Where Chandler Gets Caught - S10-E10

Continuity mistake: After Chandler says he loves the house, Monica says "this is huge" with her arms by her sides. We then cut to a front shot, and Monica's holding her hands in front of her. (00:04:30)

Jon Sandys Premium member

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

Continuity mistake: At the very start of the episode, Monica holds up both of her hands. In the next shot her right hand is wrapped around her legs. (00:00:05)

The One With The Kips - S5-E5

Plot hole: In TOW Ross tells Rachel he cannot see her following a promise to Emily, the rest of the friends go into Monica's bedroom. Joey hauls out a box from under the bed, saying that he's been hiding it there since Ross said the wrong name at the wedding. Surely Monica, with her obsession for keeping the place clean, would have noticed a box under her bed? (00:04:10)
