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)

The One With Ross's Tan - S10-E3

The One With The Memorial Service - S9-E17

Continuity mistake: After Phoebe kisses Mike in her apartment, Mikes friend rushes in and discovers them. As soon as the shot widens, Mike's hand moves from being behind Phoebes head to his lap. (00:17:35)

The One With Phoebe's Wedding - S10-E12

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. (00:20:50)

The One After Joey And Rachel Kiss - S10-E1

Continuity mistake: When Ross and Charlie are sitting on the bed it shows Charlie fixing her T-shirt. In the very next shot her hands are on her lap. (00:04:25)

The One With Phoebe's Wedding - S10-E12

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. (00:21:15)

The One With Ross's Tan - S10-E3

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. (00:22:00)

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

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. (00:12:45)

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: At the party, when Monica and Rachel are talking about Gavin, Rachel has a napkin in her hand at one shot, the shot changes and the napkin is replaced by a drink. (00:13:20)

The One Where The Stripper Cries - S10-E11

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. (00:13:25)

The One Where Monica Sings - S9-E13

Revealing mistake: When Joey has his eyebrows plucked at the salon, it is obvious that the woman is not pulling any hair off. (00:07:00)

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: Phoebe is sitting on her couch talking with Mike near the end of the episode. She puts the box with the rats on the coffee table and in the next shot, she is holding the box again. (00:18:35)

Show generally

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.

The One With Mac & C.H.E.E.S.E. - S6-E20

Plot hole: When Chandler is in Joey's apartment, he answers the phone and says, "Joey's not here right now, can I take a message?" A split-second later, we hear Chandler say, "Yeah, so the audition's been moved from 5:00 to 2:30?" It would be 100% impossible, within the fraction of a second that Chandler is silent, for the other party to pass along the fact that Joey's audition has been moved and the new start time. In fact, there wouldn't have been time to speak more than a couple of syllables. (00:08:45)

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: At Rachel's birthday party, Phoebe reaches into the shoebox of rats, but straight away in the next shot, her hands are on the lid. (00:14:10)

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

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. (00:13:10)

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: In the series nine episode with the 'hot' nanny, at the end when Rachel is on the veranda/balcony thing with Gavin, before he says 'I do have feelings for you', the shot is over the shoulder and he has his hand on the wall of the balcony, when the shot switches to the front angle his hand is by his side. (00:20:55)
