Continuity mistake: In the scene in the coffee shop where Joey tells his friends about him closing down the coffee shop when he went to the audition, as Rachel says "He left work in the middle of the day to do a personal errand?" two men walk past behind the group. As she continues talking just a few moments later, the same exact men walk past again.

Visible crew/equipment: Right after the "I'll Be There For You" intro, the camera shows the view from outside the "Central Perk" café. As it does so, a couple of stage lights are visible through the upper part of the window, obviously part of the set on the inside of the building.
Continuity mistake: When Chandler is about to put the toilet paper on the table, the picture with the little girl is facing Phoebe. In the next shot, the picture is facing Chandler. Two shots later, it's facing Phoebe again, and then Chandler again in the next shot.
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, Joey is holding the Soap Opera Digest magazine. In one shot it is open but folded, then in another it is open all the way, then it's folded again, then it's open again, then it's closed, and then it's folded again. The change is never shown.
Visible crew/equipment: When Rachel exits her bedroom and says she's going to London, you can see tape markings on the floor by her bedroom door and the end of the set. Furthermore, you can see a chair which is likely part of the Central Perk set. [Widescreen version].
Continuity mistake: When Joey and Chandler are at Joey's colleague's brunch, you can see a big wall clock in some shots. You can see it when Chandler says: "Wow, there's my fantasy's come true" with the minute hand at five to the hour. Just a few seconds later, when Joey says: "Can you see me in a place like this?" it can be seen when Chandler is in shot, and the minute hand is now at 20 to the hour.
