The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: In the flashback where Joey sticks the turkey on his head, the subtitle says Thanksgiving 1992. However, the show started in 1994 and Joey didn't move in until the previous fall, so the earliest Thanksgiving that he was there would have been 1993. (00:04:30)

The One With The Flashback - S3-E6

Continuity mistake: When Ross and Phoebe are in the bar and get on the pool table to start kissing, Ross moves the pool balls out of the way, but two remain. As Phoebe lies down, the 9 ball is next to her left shoulder. The shot cuts closer and it is the 13 ball, then cuts back and it's the 9 ball again. (00:19:40)

The One With The Halloween Party - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is talking to Ursula's fiance Eric, he is wiping sweat off his face with a napkin. He puts the napkin to his eye and then in the next shot it changes to the other eye without him having enough time to change it. This happens again when at one point he's wiping his eye and then suddenly his forehead. (00:07:45)

The One With Ross's Inappropriate Song - S9-E7

Visible crew/equipment: When Monica comes home at the end, as Joey pulls her down on top of Chandler as to protect her eyes from seeing the tape, you can see a knee pad on Courteney Cox's knee, under her skirt. (00:14:20)

The One With Frank, Jr. - S3-E5

Other mistake: Chandler tries to open the door that leads to his room, but Joey has sawed the door in half so only the upper half opens, and Chandler then falls over the bottom half. He has to hit it with some force to fall over it, but it doesn't budge an inch. (00:00:50)

The One With All The Wedding Dresses - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: There is a scene in the guys' apartment where the phrase on the Magna Doodle keeps changing. Joey is complaining to Chandler about having to stay awake all night for a sleep study. Rachel and Ross then enter the apartment (at different times) and Ross announces he is getting married to Emily in a month. In some shots during the scene the Magna Doodle reads, "get out!" in other shots it reads, "Poop." (Widescreen).

The One After the Superbowl, part 2 - S2-E13

The One With The Prom Video - S2-E14

Visible crew/equipment: During the prom video, Monica, Rachel, and Monica's date Roy are standing in the living room. When Roy leaves the room saying, "I'm gonna kick Chip's ass," the camera follows him out, but as it's turning the boom mic operator is visible. He's kneeling on the floor sliding the mic toward the girls. (00:20:45)

The One Where They All Turn Thirty - S7-E14

Continuity mistake: Rachel is said to be the youngest in the group as they reminisce about their 30th birthdays, however this episode reveals that almost all of the characters ages have been inconsistent throughout the series. In Season 1, Joey is said to be 25. In Season 2, he says he is 28. In S7 E1, he says he is 31. In Season 1, Monica is said to be 26. In Season 7, she should therefore be at least 32. Rachel graduated high school with Monica, so she should also be about 32 in S7, not just turning 30. She would have been 26 in S1. But, in Season 4, she refers to herself as a "28-year-old cheerleader". Based on Season 1, Joey should actually be the youngest member of the group, not Rachel.

The One With Rachel's Date - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Phoebe both confront Tim, they blurt out their news at the same time. In the three-shot he uncrosses his arms in surprise, but in the shot of Phoebe we can see he's still got his arms crossed. (00:17:00)

The One With The Mugging - S9-E15

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe and Ross are 'mugged' it is dark and in the evening. However, when Ross tells Monica what had 'just' happens you can see that it is the middle of the day (00:07:45)

Continuity mistake: In the interrogation room, the blinds behind Phoebe keep going from open to closed in different shots. (00:14:10)

The One Where the Monkey Gets Away - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: After Marcel has escaped from the basement, he is seen eating a banana as a pair of arms reach out to grab him. These arms are supposed to belong to Mr Heckles, their weird neighbour, however the arms clearly belong to a young, large and hair free woman. (00:16:10)

The One After Ross Says Rachel - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: Monica and Chandler are piling their dinner plates with food while arranging to meet for a second quickie. Chandler's plate is stacked with various items when he agrees to meet Monica in the cellar, but when he tosses his plate back onto the table to rush off without eating anything, the plate is nearly empty. (00:04:45)

The One With Frank, Jr. - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Frank Jr. holds a white sheet around himself, while talking to Phoebe about how she really is a masseuse, etc., the gathered sheet in his hand keeps changing repeatedly throughout the scene. (00:14:10)

The One with the Ick Factor - S1-E22

The One with the Boobies - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: We've seen the arrangement of Joey and Chandler's bathroom in two previous episodes (1x3, The One with the Thumb, and 1x12, The One with the Dozen Lasagnas) with the sink opposite the bathroom door. In this episode the sink is relocated and the bath/shower is now opposite the bathroom door, for the rest of the series.

The One With a Chick. And a Duck. - S3-E21

Visible crew/equipment: Monica is talking to Pete in the diner when he gets back from Japan. If you look at the floor at Monica's end of the counter at the very beginning of the scene, you can see the mat that is there to protect her when she falls over later. (00:02:35)

The One With Joey's Bag - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is in the coffee house talking to her father and pretending to be the executor of her grandmother's will, after she says "lipstick and a daughter, big day for you" she folds her papers in half, but in the next shot they are unfolded and she then folds them again. (00:15:15)
