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.

00:08:45

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 With Princess Consuela - S10-E14

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe and Mike are at Central Perk discussing their name changes, his scarf goes from being hung loose around his neck to tied around his neck from shot to shot.

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.

00:20:05

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 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 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.

00:19:30

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.

00:02:20

The Last One (1) - S10-E19

Continuity mistake: In the hospital when Erica is giving birth and the camera is on the doctor, the door to the room is closed. However, when the camera angle changes, the door is wide open even though no one had entered or exited.

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.

00:12:50

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 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.

The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Continuity mistake: When Monica's mum and dad are leaving the party, they are standing next to each other while her dad explains why he can not drive anymore. Her mum has both hands in front of her holding on to her purse, in the next shot one arm is around Monica.

The One With The Home Study - S10-E7

Other mistake: In the opening scene Chandler smiles at Ross' joke while playing with the ball in his hands. Later on in the scene Ross cracks another joke and the exact same scene of Chandler smiling and fiddling with the ball is repeated.

00:00:40 - 00:01:10

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 Halloween Party - S8-E6

Factual error: This show is set in October (it's a Halloween party). Rachel's stomach is completely flat, but according to the show, she got pregnant in April (It's stated several times by the characters on the show that Monica and Chandler's wedding was in May, and we learn in "The One With the Red Sweater" that she got pregnant a month before the wedding. Hence, April). However, by October she should have a six months' pregnant belly, which is no way resembles the perfectly flat belly she shows.

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.
