The One With The Bullies - S2-E21

Continuity mistake: When the bullies are about to fight with Chandler and Ross, they decide to put all watches and keys into a hat. He takes the hat off and places it down and everyone puts the watches and keys in. The shot changes to a further out view and the bully has a different hat on his head while another hat is still placed where he put it. When there is a closer view of him, there is once again no hat on his head. (00:19:30)

The One In Massapequa - S8-E18

Continuity mistake: In The One In Massapequa, Jack Gellar is eating food off a stick. When he finishes he holds the stick while Rachel asks Jack if he has any pearls of wisdom. We can see the stick over Judy's shoulder. In the next shot the stick is gone from his hand, then we see Judy put it down on a table, then it reappears in his hand, before disappearing for good. (00:05:05)

The One With Chandler's Dad - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: When Joey is talking about all the different fabrics, the magazine Phoebe is holding keeps changing position. (00:17:00)

The One With Rachel's Crush - S4-E13

Continuity mistake: At the start of this episode when Rachel comes in, you can see a bit of wooden floor by the door (carpet's visible in other shots). However, Monica doesn't pull up the carpet until later in the episode, after the apartment's tidier. (00:02:10)

The One With Ross's Grant - S10-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Dr.Hobart enters the meeting room to conduct the grant interviews, markers can be seen on the floor around the first chair's wheels as well as in front of the table. (00:12:25)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the early episodes there is a wooden post in front of the door at Monica's apartment. Remember when Monica and Rachel were looking after Ben and Monica bangs his head - Ross shouts "Monica bang" and runs into it. The post doesn't appear in later series.

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Other mistake: Ross is a paleontologist but is seen working with the display on early humans which would be more of a job for an anthropologist.

The One With Joey's Porsche - S6-E5

Factual error: Phoebe discovers that one of the babies has wandered away, and finds the baby inside the open drawer. Yeah, no. These babies aren't even walking yet, much less are they able to lift themselves up past the height of their own bodies and launch themselves into a drawer.

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Character mistake: After the guys have beaten the girls in the quiz, Rachel refuses to move apartments and Monica says: "If we had lost, we would have made them get rid of the birds." But they did lose. That's why the guys have got their apartment. She should have said if we had won.

The One With Ross' New Girlfriend - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Chandler has just got back from seeing Joey's 'bad' tailor, Joey says, "That's how they do pants". Chandler turns to look at him twice. (00:17:30)

The One With The Giant Poking Device - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: When Monica and Rachel are banging their heads on the wood, it is clear that they aren't hitting them hard enough to result in the winces that are apparent. (00:09:00)

The One With The Princess Leia Fantasy - S3-E1

Plot hole: In the beginning the Friends enter Central Perk and see that there are some other people on their couch. Monica looks fine and happy - even though later in the episode the other Friends say that she's been depressed for some days now, and she doesn't leave her apartment.

The One With All The Resolutions - S5-E11

Character mistake: In one of the scenes where Phoebe is teaching Joey guitar, she asks him to demonstrate the "Iceberg" chord. To refresh his memory, Joey refers to the chord as "G Sharp." In reality, the only way to play a G Sharp chord is with a barre chord, and as such the fingering is not exclusive to it.

Daniel Knight

The One With the Pediatrician - S9-E3

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Phoebe asks Mike to prove that he plays piano, his arm goes from resting on the couch to on his lap from one shot to the next. After Phoebe tells him "You are really good," his left arm is resting on the couch. But in the next shot when Phoebe continues talking, his arm is resting on his lap.

The One With Ross's Inappropriate Song - S9-E7

Other mistake: When Chandler finds out that the video marked 'Monica' is just a football game he says, 'This may be the first time I have enjoyed football.' Although in 'TOW The Football' (season 3) he is quite happily watching the Thanksgiving Day game with Ross and Joey.

The One Where the Monkey Gets Away - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Rachel tells Ross that she "kind of lost" Marcel it cuts to an exterior shot from the balcony, and if we look past Rachel and Ross we see there's a table against the wall, under the Maïna La Voyante poster, but that table does not exist in previous or following shots.

The One With The Lottery - S9-E18

Continuity mistake: After he gets the job Chandler sits on the couch pretending to read a magazine and Joey drops a piece of paper that materialises in his right hand in between shots. (00:19:40)

The One With The Fake Party - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: While Joey spins the bottle and it keeps pointing to Emily, in the shots facing Ross the door behind him goes back and forth from being either closed or wide open, depending on the angle of the shot.

The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Visible crew/equipment: After Phoebe gets very annoyed by the leather pants gift, when she stands up and walks to the bathroom the boom mic can be seen at the top of the screen, just as she pulls the crepe streamer down.

The One With The Fake Party - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: After Rachel spins the bottle and it points to Joshua, when she crawls toward him on her hands and knees the bottle is in front of her knees in the shots facing her, but in the shot facing Joshua the bottle is at her side, near her foot.
