The One With The Ring - S6-E23

Plot hole: In the opening scene Phoebe and Chandler discuss how Phoebe knows Chandler is going to propose: by walking in on him whilst he was looking at a ring catalogue on the toilet. However, in the previous episode Chandler leaves the apartment right after he found out about Monica booking the wedding slot (on the answerphone) and doesn't come back until he 'freaks out' at Monica and then it is revealed that it was just put on and Phoebe is in on the plan. It doesn't add up, as Chandler would have had to have been looking at the catalogue between hearing the message and deciding to propose, in the same afternoon when he wasn't even in the apartment.

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Rachel tells her date she's going to have to take a rain check and goes back into the apartment, as she opens the door you can see a cameraman standing inside the apartment. (This is only visible in the broadcast version, not DVD or widescreen). (00:10:45)

The One Where Rachel Has a Baby, part 1 - S8-E23

Visible crew/equipment: Right after Rachel says, "Do you know that feeling when you're trying to blow a Saint Bernard out your ass?" the camera cuts to a view of Monica and Chandler. Behind Monica and Chandler, part of the set is visible, along with a man on crutches.

The One With Ross's Library Book - S7-E7

Factual error: When Ross shows Chandler the book, he claims it is in "the biggest library on campus" at NYU, which would be Bobst library on Washington Square Park South. Later, in Central Perk, when Ross tells Rachel and Joey about the people "making babies" in front of his book, Joey says, "Wait a minute. Fifth floor, against that back wall?" Bobst's fifth floor is conference rooms only; there are no stacks on that floor. Joey might have been confused, but Ross should know better, being a professor and having just visited that location. (00:08:30)

The One With The Chicken Pox - S2-E23

Factual error: Ryan is a LCDR submariner, who had been on a sub deployment for the last two years. but at no time does he wear his dolphins pin. A true submariner would sooner forget his skivvies than his pin.

The One Where They All Turn Thirty - S7-E14

Continuity mistake: In The One Where They All Turn Thirty, it is Rachel's birthday. They show flashbacks of all the other Friends' thirtieth birthdays despite Monica's birthday supposedly being months after Rachel's. Plus, earlier on in the show Joey was 25 when Monica was 26, and since Monica and Rachel were in the same grade Joey should actually be a year younger than them, not a year older.

The One Where Monica Sings - S9-E13

Visible crew/equipment: After Joey dips his finger into the hot wax and smears it all over his hands, when Sonya walks out of the back room we can see her tape mark on the floor, which she promptly steps on.

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 2 - S4-E24

Audio problem: Toward the end of the episode Ross' Dad and Emily's dad are arguing. Ross comes between them and you can hear the audio saying"From now on everybody gets along!" But it does not match up with the movement of Ross' lips.

The One With The Joke - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: In the coffee shop Phoebe is not in the scene. After Joey puts his apron on, the camera shows Phoebe is next to Rachel. Monica asks Joey if he works there, he says no, a customer calls "waiter" and in a full view of the coffee shop Phoebe is no longer there. (00:09:45 - 00:10:55)

The One Where Ross Got High - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Ross asks Rachel to step into the hallway, we see the whipped cream atop the trifle dessert plates on the table, but while Joey gives everyone acting lessons all the whipped cream is gone, but the dollops of whipped cream reappear once again.

The One Where Ross Hugs Rachel - S6-E2

Visible crew/equipment: After Ross tells Phoebe that he does not have feelings for Rachel, just as Ross walks into the apartment to find Rachel crying, the shadow of the moving boom mic can be seen on the wall at the top, left side of the screen. (00:20:15)

The One With Rachel's Book - S7-E2

Audio problem: Chandler, Monica and her parents are at dinner to discuss the upcoming wedding. When they describe how they remodeled the kitchen when she broke up with Richard, the camera pans to Monica and her mouth is moving but there's no sound. It then switches camera angles and Monica audibly asks, "Well what about when I started dating Chandler?" Which is what she said in the frame before with no sound. (00:11:00)

The One With The Yeti - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When Rachel and Monica knock on Danny's door and he opens it, there is a wall a few feet behind him. Later, when Rachel shows up at Danny's apartment to cancel their date, she enters into an open room and there is no longer a wall in front of the door. Danny's apartment is supposed to be one floor directly below Chandler and Joey's apartment. This was obviously the same set for their apartment that was used for Danny's and the wall was added for that shot to disguise it.

The One With The Truth About London - S7-E16

Revealing mistake: When Monica gives Phoebe the headache medication (Hexadrin) she, not only doesn't take the lid off - and therefore fails in pretending to put it back on - but also doesn't actually give Phoebe anything. (00:07:30)

The One Where They're Up All Night - S7-E12

Revealing mistake: When Chandler is getting a pan out to warm some milk, he successfully pulls the bottom pan out without too much disruption, however, the joke (and entire plot device - to wake Monica up) is to make as much noise as possible so Perry pulls out more pans on purpose and knocks them on the floor. This is quite clear - you can see him grasp the wok and pull it out onto the floor. (00:06:30)

The One Where Ross Got High - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe finishes telling Rachel about her thanksgiving dream about Jack, Chandler is looking straight ahead with his arms crossed. Cut to the next shot when Jack and Judy are coming out of Monica and Chandler's room, and his arms are immediately uncrossed and he's looking at the women. (00:20:05)

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When Rachel and Monica are arguing about her meddling, Monica raises her hand to her face and you see a sparkly engagement ring on her finger. Her character wasn't engaged but Courteney Cox was at the time. (00:07:05)
