The One Where Emma Cries - S9-E2

Continuity mistake: When Joey is seen apologising in front of the hospital room door, we can see a pink wall only about 2 metres behind him. However, in every scene before that which features the door, we can see it leads out to a large open area.

The One Where Joey Speaks French - S10-E13

Other mistake: When Joey auditions near the end and Phoebe steps in to explain to the producer/audition guy, she speaks French and the subtitles say, 'He is a little bit retarted' instead of 'He is a little bit retarded.'

The One With Princess Consuela - S10-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Ross enters Central Perk with champagne, straight away when he walks over to the sofa, look above the door. In the reflection of the top window, you can see several stage lights.

Season 1 generally

Other mistake: At the first shot of Central Perk, in "The One With The Monkey" and "The One With The Dozen Lasagnas", you can see they used the same footage twice because the same three people are having the same conversation in both episodes.

Casual Person

Show generally

Other mistake: In almost every season when the friends are in the coffee shop, it shows a front view of Central Perk; and a lot of times, in different episodes, the same (unaging) lady with blonde curly hair is walking past the shop. There are also a couple of different episodes where two babies with red hair are being carried past the coffee shop.

The One Where Rosita Dies - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: When Chandler and Rachel figure out that the chairs were switched they both head over to Joey's apartment. When thet enter the apartment, the new black chair can be seen with tags attached to the top and left side. When the scene cuts to Joey sitting down the tags are all missing from the chair.

The One Where Ross Moves In - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: Rachel tells her neighbor Danny that she doesn't know anything about sailing, but later in the series, Rachel teaches Joey how to sail after he wins a boat at a silent auction. She says she learned sailing from her father while growing up.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Apparently Ross is Monica's older brother but in "The one where they're going to party", Joey states that the three men are all the same age ("we're 29, we're not women"), and in the one with the birth Monica says she is 26 and Joey says he is 25. If Joey is younger than Monica, and Ross and Joey are the same age, then there's definitely a mistake somewhere.

The One With Rachel's Going Away Party - S10-E16

Plot hole: In this episode Chandler finds furry black handcuffs, and everybody says that they have never seen them before. How is that possible considering all the people that have moved in and out of that room? How come nobody noticed them when the room and closet were painted green after being pink?

The One Where They're Up All Night - S7-E12

Plot hole: It is made clear through dialogue in the episode that Joey and Ross are stuck on the roof because Joey removed the bit of piping holding the door open. However, when Tag, Rachel and Phoebe get up to leave, Phoebe says "Shh, get me out of here" and there is a clear shot of the door standing wide open. Afterward, it is possible to see Tag reaching for the door handle to close it behind him. This is inconsistent with the idea that the door needs to be held open.

The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Continuity mistake: Just before Rachel and Ross come back from the cake store, Monica is holding Emma on her lap. Emma is holding a green toy in one shot, when the camera angle changes it is nowhere to be seen.

The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Continuity mistake: At the end after Rachel and Ross have come back from the cake store, when they are asking Emma how old she is, we can see Joey walking to sit down, then in the next shot he is sat down, then walking to sit down again.

The One With Ross's Tan - S10-E3

Visible crew/equipment: When Rachel is talking to Monica about how weird the thing with Joey was, behind her in a yellow vase, you can see a huge light blur reflected from a stage light.

xx:xx:xx

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Chandler turns on music when he and Phoebe are going to "have all the sex" you see Phoebe's arm begin to move in the right corner of the screen. When it cuts to her she has not yet begun dancing, and when he goes to turn the music on again it is a duplicate clip from the initial shot.

The One After Joey And Rachel Kiss - S10-E1

Factual error: There is an impossibility with the hotel rooms in Barbados. Ross gets from Monica and Chandler's room to Rachel's room far too quickly for it to be real. Also, when the camera moves between rooms (cutting through the wall), you can see that both Rachel and Ross' rooms are too long. If the walls were where they actually are, they would edge through into Monica and Chandler's room.

The One After Joey And Rachel Kiss - S10-E1

Continuity mistake: Chandler, Monica and Phoebe are shown listening at the wall between their room and the room Ross is in with Charlie. However, when Ross comes into the room, the outside hallway is shown, and it is clear that the wall they were listening at actually connects to the hallway, not another room. Ross even walks in that direction when he leaves, proving it's not a dead end or similar.

The One Where The Stripper Cries - S10-E11

Continuity mistake: When Ross and Chandler are talking about who broke which pact in college (the girls they agreed not to date) they are standing at the drinks table. Chandler is holding a drink in his left hand and his right hand is in his pants pocket. The shot then changes to face Ross, Chandler does not remove his hand from his pocket, but in the next shot facing him his drink is in his right hand. He then places it on the table.
