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.
Continuity mistake: When Rachel and Monica knock on Danny's door and he opens it, there is a wall a few feet behind him. Later, when Rachel shows up at Danny's apartment to cancel their date, she enters into an open room and there is no longer a wall in front of the door. Danny's apartment is supposed to be one floor directly below Chandler and Joey's apartment. This was obviously the same set for their apartment that was used for Danny's and the wall was added for that shot to disguise it.
Continuity mistake: In the classroom Ross has his head down because he didn't want to be called on about the number of boxes he sold. The mother brown bird walks behind him and her right hand is on her hip while she is clearing her throat. In the next shot her right arm is pointing upward.
Revealing mistake: After Monica runs into the bedroom screaming "I wrecked your child" Rachel says "I hope it's funny when you're in hell." When Rachel is saying that line you can see the shadow of Monica on the wall in the room indicating she is just standing there waiting to make her entrance again.
Continuity mistake: In the last few seconds of season 3, Ross closes the door immediately after he steps through it. However, in the opening seconds of season 4, we see this same event from the other side of the door. This time however, Ross doesn't close the door for at least 15-20 seconds after entering the room.
Continuity mistake: In the scene in the coffee shop where Joey tells his friends about him closing down the coffee shop when he went to the audition, as Rachel says "He left work in the middle of the day to do a personal errand?" two men walk past behind the group. As she continues talking just a few moments later, the same exact men walk past again.
Visible crew/equipment: Right after the "I'll Be There For You" intro, the camera shows the view from outside the "Central Perk" café. As it does so, a couple of stage lights are visible through the upper part of the window, obviously part of the set on the inside of the building.
Continuity mistake: When Chandler is about to put the toilet paper on the table, the picture with the little girl is facing Phoebe. In the next shot, the picture is facing Chandler. Two shots later, it's facing Phoebe again, and then Chandler again in the next shot. (00:08:15)
Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, Joey is holding the Soap Opera Digest magazine. In one shot it is open but folded, then in another it is open all the way, then it's folded again, then it's open again, then it's closed, and then it's folded again. The change is never shown.
