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.
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.
Continuity mistake: After Phoebe tells Monica that she is fired from being her wedding planner, Monica says that she has never been fired. However, in "The One with Five Steaks and an Eggplant" Monica gets fired for taking the kickbacks.
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Ross brings the picnic basket to Rachel's office, he lights a candle and puts it near a plant (which then sets it on fire). However, the candle is barely (if at all) close enough to set it alight, and when it does, a huge flame just erupts from the middle of the plant, not the edge where the candle was.
Revealing mistake: Just before we see everyone setting the wedding up outside, there is a sweep shot of the city with snow falling. It's very obvious that this snow is added digitally and it's very badly done. There is no snow on any of the buildings, and there is no snow hitting the surface of the water.
Revealing mistake: At the wedding, none of the snow melts when it has been sitting on people for several minutes. Occasionally when it gets brushed off clothes it just sticks to hands and sleeves, again for several minutes without melting.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joey and Rachel are sitting on the couch in their apartment after they decide their relationship is hopeless Rachel puts her head on Joey's shoulder. Her hair is on her face but when she lifts her head up in the very next shot her hair is now behind her right ear which she couldn't have done because her hands never left her lap.
Continuity mistake: When Monica goes to Rachel's office and invites Gavin to Rachel's birthday party Rachel gets up and goes to the door exclaiming "why did you invite him, I hate that guy." She has nothing in her hand when she gets up from her desk; but at the very end of the scene when she tells Monica to be quiet, she's got a pen in her hand for one shot.
Continuity mistake: When the girls and Mr Goodbody are talking about paying him the three hundred dollars, the top buttons of his shirt are ripped open. Half way though the scene this changes to only one button being open and his shirt looking neat and pressed, as if he had not started his strip yet.
Other mistake: In his apartment from later episodes, Ross' kitchen door is on the same wall as the front door, and it is a long and narrow kitchen, but Ross' apartment is between two others. The floor plan doesn't make sense unless the kitchen is only a foot wide, otherwise it would jut off into the hallway.
Continuity mistake: As Rachel says "the guy hates me", in a wide shot Monica turns to her with her arms by her sides to say "does he?". It then cuts to a shot more focused on Monica where she laughs, and she's now reaching forwards to the table.
