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

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe, Monica and Rachel are talking in the coffee house, a waitress walks by and in the next shot when the camera focuses on Monica, and comes back to Rachel, the waitress walks by again. (00:05:00)

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 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)

The One With Chandler's Dad - S7-E22

Revealing mistake: In the shot of the highway with Ross and Rachel in the Porsche before the police officer walks to them, it is very obvious that the people inside the car are not actually them.

The One With The Ultimate Fighting Champion - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: Joey's hair is suddenly much shorter after the intro with Robin Williams and Billy Crystal - everyone's wearing the same clothes so no time is meant to have passed.

The One With Rachel's Dream - S9-E19

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is telling Monica about her dream at Central Perk, Phoebe enters and leaves her bag on the couch but it falls. However, in the next shot, her bag is right at her side on the couch. (00:14:40)

The One With The Blind Dates - S9-E14

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe and Joey are at the coffee house discussing their plan to ruin Ross' blind date just before Joey says, "Ooh I hear that's bad" the pendant on Phoebe's necklace is smooth and blue. When the camera pans to Phoebe after Joey says his line the pendant is flipped over and reveals a new design. This continues to happen throughout the scene. (00:07:20)

The One With The Cheap Wedding Dress - S7-E17

Continuity mistake: Chandler's chair appears in this episode again, although it was broken in 7/13 and thrown out. It is not in the room in 7/14-16, but in 7/17 it's there again, then it is gone again in 7/18.

The One With The Proposal, part 2 - S6-E25

Continuity mistake: Right after Monica says, "You wanted it to be a surprise", the camera pans to Joey who shuts the door firmly, however in the next shot you can see the door gliding back open and then shutting again. (00:18:40)

The One With The Stripper - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: In this scene in Central Perk, Monica tells Chandler she has hired a stripper for him as she feels bad for not letting him have a bachelor party, and tells him to think of it as a 2 month anniversary present. However this episode is set 2 episodes after the Halloween episode, therefore allowing us to assume it is set sometime in November or later. Chandler and Monica got married in May, as stated several times in the show by the cast, therefore they have been married for around 6 months or more, not 2 months. (00:07:00)

The One Where Rachel Quits - S3-E10

Continuity mistake: In the classroom Ross has his head down because he didn't want to be called on about the number of boxes he sold. The mother brown bird walks behind him and her right hand is on her hip while she is clearing her throat. In the next shot her right arm is pointing upward.

The One With The Giant Poking Device - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: After Monica runs into the bedroom screaming "I wrecked your child" Rachel says "I hope it's funny when you're in hell." When Rachel is saying that line you can see the shadow of Monica on the wall in the room indicating she is just standing there waiting to make her entrance again.

The One With The Jellyfish - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: In the last few seconds of season 3, Ross closes the door immediately after he steps through it. However, in the opening seconds of season 4, we see this same event from the other side of the door. This time however, Ross doesn't close the door for at least 15-20 seconds after entering the room.
