Continuity mistake: When Rachel and Tag are on the balcony and Tag says, "What did Joey say? I like you back?" he is standing on the balcony with one hand in his pocket and the other in front of him. As the camera angle changes, Tag is now in a different position, with both his hands behind him, leaning against the balcony before he moves forward.
Continuity mistake: When Rachel says, 'One can never be too Alan, ' we see the stick pom-poms that Ross is holding are up facing Monica, but in the next shot the pom-poms are facing the floor, but after Chandler says 'I personally could have a gallon of Alan' in Monica's closeup we see the stick pom-poms are up again facing Monica.

Continuity mistake: In the previous episode, Joey tells Chandler that the bathroom in his new apartment has mirrors on both sides of the toilet. But in this episode, when we see the toilet from the side while Joey gives the gang a tour, it is clear that the wall is devoid of mirrors.
Other mistake: When Phoebe tells Rachel that she thinks she can help her get over Ross, she starts by saying that she needs some photos of Ross. Rachel immediately starts walking towards the kitchen, walking right past the red box of photos on the table beside Phoebe (which she will pick up on her way back and then hand to Phoebe), before Phoebe even mentions the chocolate (and then glass of water) she also needs. It's obvious that Rachel is headed for the kitchen before she knows she needs to go there. (00:12:00)
Continuity mistake: While everyone's at the restaurant Rachel dips a tortilla chip into guacamole and gets some on her hand. When Paolo takes a bite from the chip he also eats the guacamole off Rachel's hand while she's still holding the rest of the tortilla chip, but in the next closeup Rachel's hand is empty, then in the next shot the remaining tortilla chip reappears in Rachel's hand. (00:06:45)
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?moviemaster101
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.
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.raywest
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. (00:05:30)
