Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Rachel is trying to hide Ross from Paul, when he's about to go into Paul's bedroom after he says "Did you really hear a bear?", look at the window behind Rachel when the shot is on her. You can see a large light reflected in the glass and it moves slightly (not just in conjunction with the camera, it moves before the camera shifts).LittleWildman
Continuity mistake: When Jack and Judy leave Joey's apartment, there is a birthday banner on the counter that has fallen off. When Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe are racing the toys to see who gets to go, the banner is back on. In this time no-one has fixed the banner as there is not enough time for them to do so off camera and the people on camera don't fix it. It's most clear that it's back on when Monica is saying, "Technically, our dog never crossed the finish line". (00:14:05 - 00:17:05)Ssiscool
Visible crew/equipment: After Max tells Phoebe that he and David got the grant and are leaving for Minsk on January 1st, when Phoebe goes to see David, just as she knocks on the door a boom mic can be seen moving at the top of the screen, before it cuts to David's closeup. (00:12:15)Dwarf
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.

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.
Revealing mistake: When Ross comes back from asking out his neighbour at the counter, he has his hand open at one point, pointing down, but then apparently smashes the egg on Chandler. It's clear he never had the egg in his hand as there is no mess on Chandler's vest top either.
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".
