Friends

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)

The One with Two Parts: Part 1 - S1-E16

The One With Mac & C.H.E.E.S.E. - S6-E20

The One with the Candy Hearts - S1-E14

Continuity mistake: Just after Rachel throws a bread roll at Joey, he turns to Chandler to speak to him. Chandler is holding his hands out in front of him. In the next shot, his right hand is touching his face, then in the next shot, it is lowered again. (00:02:55)

Dwarf

The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding, Part 2 - S7-E24

Continuity mistake: During an earlier episode Monica gave up her dream wedding dress so Chandler could have The Swing Kings at their wedding. So it is a little surprising that the band they actually have are called Jungle Swing.

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Revealing mistake: When Pheobe and Ross hit heads whilst in the cab on the bridge, they only just tap heads. Not enough to make them scream in pain. (00:05:15)

The One With The Blind Dates - S9-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Phoebe meets Joey to tell him about the date for Rach, the stage lights are seen outside the coffee-shop. (00:05:35)

The One Where Nana Dies Twice - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: In this episode, Rachel tells Chandler that she thought he was gay until he spent Phoebe's entire birthday party talking to her breasts. But at this point since Rachel joined the group, Phoebe hasn't had a birthday yet; that occurs some episodes later, in "The One With Two Parts." (00:02:00)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In addition to Ross remaining 29 for several years, he also gets younger as the years go by. When he marries Emily he is thirty (Monica describes herself as "a single mother with a 30 year old son"), but when he divorces her he is twenty-nine.

The One Where No One Proposes - S9-E1

Revealing mistake: When Rachel is breastfeeding Emma for the first time, the baby's head is constantly moving in the same repetitive pattern suggesting it is one of those life-like dolls. Babies do not move their heads like that. (00:08:20)

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

Plot hole: Chandler has always loaned Joey money for various things (rent, acting classes, Christmas gifts, etc), so he shouldn't be surprised to learn that Joey doesn't have money for fancy dinners or birthday celebrations. Plus, Joey never seems to have a problem taking money/handouts from Chandler - why now? Also, Chandler explains that they're buying Ross a cake ($20), but why doesn't Monica (the chef and his sister) just make him one? (00:07:50)

The One Where Nana Dies Twice - S1-E8

Other mistake: When Ross is helping choose a dress and shoes for Nana to wear, he is behind the chest of drawers in the cupboard. He looks in a shoebox and finds lots of pink sweet'n low packets, then pulls down another box and lots of packets fall down on him. However, it is obvious that someone is above him showering the packets down, as they are coming from directly above him, not from on top of the door. (00:12:35)

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is trying to turn on the TV, her necklace moves without her touching it. (00:00:15)

Friends mistake picture

The One With All The Jealousy - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: In the coffee house when Rachel is talking to Ross about trust, a couple comes in behind her and stands at the bar. In the next shot of Rachel they have switched positions; then they are gone, and you never see them walk past Chandler. (00:19:05)

Pam-I-am

The One With The Blind Dates - S9-E14

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is at her blind date, and Steve tells her that he's selling T-Shirts now, Rachel's arms are on the table, but then the camera cuts to her, and she has her arms crossed. (00:12:00)

The One With The Joke - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: At the end Rachel turns away from Gunther and pulls her sleeves above her elbows. Next shot they are below her elbows. (00:20:00)

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Revealing mistake: Joey's bucket of chicken is, rather obviously, a KFC bucket with "Finger Lickin' Chicken" stuck over the original KFC lettering - you can even see the picture of Col. Sanders. (00:17:10)

David Mercier

The One Where Ross And Rachel Take A Break - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: During the dinner scene with the diplomat and translator, the men's glasses move closer, then further apart, and then closer together again. (00:14:20)

Pam-I-am

The One In Barbados, part 1 - S9-E23

Plot hole: This is actually for both parts of "The One in Barbados": it's shown that Monica's hair gets all frizzy from the humidity. And yet she's shown all throughout with her hair out and loose in all its frizzy glory, though it bugs her. I could maybe buy that not one of the women have hair gel with her (not bloody likely.) or that the fancy hotel doesn't sell hair gel (possible). But resourceful Monica would have thought of something to calm down her hair, or she would have just tied it up in a ponytail or bun - she does care a lot about her appearance. It makes no sense other than for comic value. (00:09:30)

Season 4 generally

Revealing mistake: Before Phoebe agrees to carry Frank and Alice's' triplets, she already has a baby bump.
