The One With All The Rugby - S4-E15

Other mistake: When Ross first goes out to play rugby and goes into the scrum, just after Emily talks to the rest of the players, he jumps into the middle of the scrum where the ball should be. Instead, in the next shot, the rugby ball is to the far left of the shot, not in the actual scrum.

The One With The Truth About London - S7-E16

Visible crew/equipment: As Joey is entering Monica and Chandler's apartment, there is a black microphone visible for a few seconds moving above Joey's head as he is walking towards Monica and Chandler at the table.

The One With The Ballroom Dancing - S4-E4

Visible crew/equipment: When Phoebe and Rick are sat on the massage table, keep an eye behind Phoebe's head when the camera is on her, particularly after Rick says, "I can always find another masseuse." You can see the shadow of the boom mic moving.

The One With Frank Jr. - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: When Frank is trying to melt a spoon there's one shot where he holds the spoon high above the table, then the angle changes and he's pressing the spoon against the plate.

The One With Phoebe's Uterus - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joey is showing kids around the museum, there's a little boy who corrects Joey about the existence of the Mastodon. The kid's arm is by his side at the beginning of the scene. When he begins saying, "Isn't the Mastodon from the Pliocene Epoch?" his left arm is suddenly up and his thumb pointing at the Mastodon. (00:07:05)

The One Where Ross And Rachel Take A Break - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe rushes in at the start she has a coat on. Camera cuts to Monica then back to Phoebe, and the coat is off. There is not enough time to take it off. (00:00:15)

The One With All The Cheesecakes - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Phoebe says goodbye to David, you can see Phoebe's long hair on her back. The scene goes back and forth between Phoebe and David or Phoebe and Joey (after David leaves). Each time the amount of hair on Phoebe's back changes. Sometimes it is a thin bit of hair, other times a large chunk (while the rest of her hair is framing her face in front). (00:19:10)

The One With The Secret Closet - S8-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Chandler walk in Joey's apartment and say "Rachel's all moved out, huh?" as he walks towards Joey a lot of set lights are visible above their heads. (00:18:55)

The One With The Princess Leia Fantasy - S3-E1

Audio problem: When Monica answers the door and sees her father, she says "Hey Dad, what are you doing here?" but her lips barely move at all.

The One With Ross and Monica's Cousin - S7-E19

Continuity mistake: When Cassie shows Ross her freckles on her shoulder, her hand positioning changes between shots.

The One With Ross's Tan - S10-E3

The One With The Princess Leia Fantasy - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: S3E1; Ross is telling Chandler about how woman tell each other everything in Central perk. Chandler puts a book about trout on the table and then talks to Ross, then the camera zooms out and the book has moved more to his left and a coffee mug is in front of it.

The One Where Ross Hugs Rachel - S6-E2

Audio problem: In the pre-theme-song scene, with Phoebe and Ross talking outside the coffeehouse, when Phoebe sends Rachel away in the cab for the second time the sound of the tyres screeching starts while the cab is still stationary.

Craig

The One With The Lesbian Wedding - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: The first time we see Rachel's mom in the coffee house, Rachel puts her coat on the hook by the door. When she does this the wall visibly shakes.

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?
Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
Monica: She will be after tonight.

Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.

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.
