The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: When Gavin and Rachel are in Rachel's office, in some shots Gavin is wearing a wedding ring. (00:03:43)


The One Where Ross Moves In - S5-E7

Revealing mistake: During Danny's party you can see Monica's apartment through the gap between the door and the wall, despite the party taking place on a lower floor. This is because they just reused the set for the hallway to save having to build a new set for the "lower floor."

The One With the Holiday Armadillo - S7-E10

Revealing mistake: When Ben sits on the sofa to listen to Ross talk about the festival of lights, you can see Monica move Ben to the other side of the sofa despite there being space for her to sit. This is so they sit in the correct order as she would mask Ben to the cameras.

The One With Chandler's Dad - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: When Monica receives her gift from his father, the Porsche, it's gray. When Rachel takes the keys from Ross' jacket and gets into the car in this episode, the Porsche is black. (00:04:49)

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe goes to visit her mom for the first time, she takes a cookie from the cookie jar and leaves the lid off. But in one shot, the lid is back on. The lid is back off in the following shots. (00:06:36)


The One With Joey's Porsche - S6-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When the camera follows Phoebe as she is going to clean up the vase she knocked over, the foot of the baby is still visible in the shot and you can see how someone picked it up as the foot goes straight up. Then as the camera moves back revealing there are only 2 babies, you can see a shadow of a crew member moving on the ground. (00:16:00)

The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: When Joey says that Ross needs to choose his best man before handing out of the ring, the camera cuts to Chandler. In the background you can see Joey getting up from the chair, but when it cuts back to Joey he is sitting down and then gets up in that shot. (00:02:01)

The One With The Princess Leia Fantasy - S3-E1

Other mistake: When Phoebe makes fun of Ross' Princess Leia fantasy with the rolls, Rachel tries to stop her; the shots used are the same action, just from different angles. Look at Rachel's hands and the towel in her hand when Phoebe puts the rolls by her ears.

The One With The Free Porn - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: Near the end, when Emily walks into the house, the TV should be on with the porn. But instead, it's turned off.

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Chandler come in to ask Joey about Pheobe knowing about their relationship he throws the Hugsy teddy behind him. In the next shot we see behind the chair and Hugsy is not there.

Continuity mistake: When Pete is trying to ask Monica out at the diner she works at, she rejects him while placing the bell jar over the cheesecake and the pie server on the counter. In the next shot, the bell jar is nowhere to be seen and the pie server is up on the cake stand with less cheesecake. Then the bell jar reappears over the cheesecake. (00:07:00)


The One With The Jellyfish - S4-E1

Continuity mistake: When Monica gets stung by the jellyfish they are standing on a part of the beach that is wet and close to the surf but when she is saying "damn the jellyfish" the part they are standing on is dry and further from the water.

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 Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Monica: What happened to your teeth?
Ross: I whitened them.
Chandler: Really?
Ross: Yeah, what... What do you think?
Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
Ross: Come on, seriously.
Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
Monica: How much longer?
Ross: Uh, uh... A day.
Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.
