Continuity mistake: Just before the opening credits, when Ross says, "That's 'pathet', which is Sanskrit for 'really cool way to live', " Marcel is sitting on Ross's left shoulder in the closeup, but in the next shot the monkey is suddenly sitting on his right shoulder, right before Ross walks off screen. (00:01:00)Dwarf
Continuity mistake: Ross has always said that Carol was his first (and only, until Julie) sexual partner, but in the episode where they tell each others secrets Chandler says Ross slept with the cleaner when they were at college. Some people say that Ross had kept it a secret, and that's why it had never come out before, but considering that he categorically states several times over series one and two how he'd only EVER been with Carol, getting quite upset at times, that explanation just doesn't ring true.
Continuity mistake: When Rachel and Chandler are out in the hall eating cheesecake off the floor, Chandler's piece is much closer to Rachel's piece than in the previous scene when Rachel slapped it out of Chandler's hand closer to the apartment doorway.luke f
Continuity mistake: When Ross goes to Amanda's house for a date you see her two children sitting on the couch. The little boy with blonde hair is sitting down, when it cuts to Ross and Amanda talking the boy is standing up on the couch, the next shot he's sat down as Amanda walks out the door.
Audio problem: When Phoebe puts her feet up on Ross' apothecary table, Ross asks her not to put her feet up on his "new...old sheet." During the pause right after he says "new," there's a cut to a different angle and you can see his mouth form the words "old sheet." Then it cuts to a different angle and we actually see and hear Ross say "old sheet." (00:12:05)
Other mistake: In "TOW the cheap wedding dress" the whole episode is about how Chandler wants "The Swing Kings" to play at the wedding, because, at their concert, that is where he realised that Monica was the woman he wanted to dance all his dances with, and Monica goes to great lengths to secure the band. In this episode, the band at the wedding is actually called "Jungle Swing".
Plot hole: Monica is trusting Rachel to make a traditional English trifle and being a top chef (or an even averagely intelligent human being) she would know what ingredients are used in one. So there's no way she could have missed Rachel cooking beef with peas and onions during the cooking process. Rachel's cooking it right there in Monica's kitchen while everyone else is there!KidPokerJR
Continuity mistake: When Ross gives the super the money and asks "will this help with the knob" the super says that the place isn't open until Tuesday. When he says that the money is in his right hand. Then when he asks "am I not saying it right", the money in his right hand is gone.AttitudeEra1
Continuity mistake: When Mike says "I am going to make this decision for us. What do you think we should do?" he is holding the check. The very next shot shows the charity worker taking the check off the desk and giving it back even though Mike never put it down. (00:20:35)AttitudeEra1
Character mistake: Ross tells Chandler to run a "post pattern to the left." (And Chandler quickly agrees.) In football, this is a type of passing play where Ross would hold on to the ball while Chandler runs straight down the field immediately after the snap, eventually veering diagonally to the left once he's a ways down field to receive a pass from Ross. The play that they actually run is completely different. It's a running play known as a sweep. (A toss sweep to be precise.) There is no possible way that anyone either making play calls or running them would ever confuse a post vs. a sweep. (00:10:10)
Continuity mistake: As Chandler is writing on the board to remind himself about Joey's audition, the door opens as he's writing "Joey", and there are a bunch of squiggly lines under the y. As Chandler is thinking back at that moment and it moves to present tense, he looks over to the board, and the squiggly lines are different.MatthewPerryLuv
