Factual error: The guys are gone for a single night, watching the Knicks game. (You can tell this because they talk about how "we can go see the game tonight," and when they get back everyone's wearing the same clothes as that conversation.) When they get back, both apartments are completely switched back: the large, heavy furniture is replaced, the posters are re-hung, etc. Even if they were gone from, say, 6 p.m. to midnight or so, there is no way that Rachel and Monica would be able to make that transition in that kind of time.
Continuity mistake: When Mike says "I am going to make this decision for us. What do you think we should do?" he is holding the check. The very next shot shows the charity worker taking the check off the desk and giving it back even though Mike never put it down. (00:20:35)AttitudeEra1
Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the episode, the exterior shot of Central Perk shows about 8-10 people inside the cafe, at the coffee bar, at the tables. But the next interior shot shows the cafe is empty except for our six Friends, lounging in the closed cafe while Rachel cleans up.MovieFan612
Character mistake: When Mike and Monica are playing ping pong, Mike's service was a fault as he released and hit the ball over the top of the table rather than behind. He then (on the same point) claims to win the point because Monica placed her hand on the table. (00:33:00)ukjbrown
Continuity mistake: The bathroom in Chandler and Joey's apartment constantly changes in the direction it opens in. Sometimes the doorknob is on the left, sometimes it is on the right. The changes occur throughout the seasons, and in some cases the changes occur in back-to-back episodes.Zyen Hoo
