Friends

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)

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 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 Two Parts: Part 1 - S1-E16

Continuity mistake: When Ross says he's going to be a father, Chandler drinks from his cup. In the next shot the cup is gone. (00:16:55)

Dwarf

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

Season 4 generally

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

The One With The Metaphorical Tunnel - S3-E4

Continuity mistake: When they are in the coffee house talking about the fact that Joey missed his audition, Phoebe says, "And that is why we don't invite you to play." Her hands are at chest height, but in the zoomed out shot, they are lowered. (00:02:50)

Jennifer 1

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

Other mistake: At the beginning when you see outside the museum, there's a man in a red t-shirt looking at the camera.

The Last One (1) - S10-E19

Revealing mistake: When the first baby is born, Monica and Chandler are asked by the doctor if they would like to cut the umbilical cord. However, just before this line is delivered, the baby is moved and its navel is visible.

The One After Joey And Rachel Kiss - S10-E1

Visible crew/equipment: After the gang leaves Rachel's room, right after she asks Joey "Are they right?", if you look above Joey's head, for a split of a second you will see a boom mic. (00:09:25)

IDFS33140

The One Where Nana Dies Twice - S1-E8

Revealing mistake: When Monica is reading about the cheap casket, in the shot from behind her there is obviously a sticky-note that has been placed in the brochure.

The One With The Red Sweater - S8-E2

Plot hole: The night of the wedding, Joey kept ordering porn to everybody's hotel room and stealing nuts from their mini-bars. Where was everybody during the night (and especially the newlyweds)? (00:01:00)

The One With The Red Sweater - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: When Ross is explaining about buying more cameras, the way he holds it changes. Follow the lens. (00:08:40)

Joanna: What are you doing?
Chandler: I'm getting dressed.
Joanna: Why?
Chandler: Because when I go outside naked, people throw garbage at me.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.
