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)

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

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. (00:20:25)

Amie

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 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. (00:05:05)

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 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. (00:18:20)

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. (00:13:50)

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 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.

Dan23

The One With The Stain - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: When Monica asks Brenda to clean the top of the cabinets so that she can get a look at her crotch, Brenda drags a chair over (with both hands) to stand on. In the next shot, she is magically holding a feather duster. (00:11:40)

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 Phoebe's Wedding - S10-E12

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.

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Factual error: In the scene where Joey is supposedly in the Nevada desert, Saquaro cacti are seen in the background indicating that the scene was shot in Arizona or Mexico.

The One Where Rachel's Sister Babysits - S10-E5

Other mistake: Jennifer Aniston's tan mark from her wedding ring is especially visible in this episode. Most notably when she says "But Erin Brockovich had her own house."

The One Where Ross And Rachel Take A Break - S3-E15

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.

The One With Chandler In A Box - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When Chandler is climbing out of the box, you can see the bottom of the set spotlight right above the bathroom door. (00:20:35)
