The One Where Ross Moves In - S5-E7

Revealing mistake: During Danny's party you can see Monica's apartment through the gap between the door and the wall, despite the party taking place on a lower floor. This is because they just reused the set for the hallway to save having to build a new set for the "lower floor."

The One With Joey's Porsche - S6-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When the camera follows Phoebe as she is going to clean up the vase she knocked over, the foot of the baby is still visible in the shot and you can see how someone picked it up as the foot goes straight up. Then as the camera moves back revealing there are only 2 babies, you can see a shadow of a crew member moving on the ground. (00:16:00)

The One With The Hypnosis Tape - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: When Pete is trying to ask Monica out at the diner she works at, she rejects him while placing the bell jar over the cheesecake and the pie server on the counter. In the next shot, the bell jar is nowhere to be seen and the pie server is up on the cake stand with less cheesecake. Then the bell jar reappears over the cheesecake. (00:07:00)

The One With The Yeti - S5-E6

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.

The One Where Rachel Quits - S3-E10

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.

The One With The Jellyfish - S4-E1

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.

The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Audio problem: When Chandler says, "Ironically, that was the Maxim thing", you can tell it's an overdub. The volume and the background noise is different, and we don't see a shot of him speaking these words. (00:11:20)

Kathy: So, what did you do today?
Chandler: Well, I had an appointment to get my hair cut...
Kathy: Oh, it looks great!
Chandler: ...and then it got cancelled.

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 Jellyfish - S4-E1

Question: When Ross and Rachel are fighting, Chandler hides behind the door and bursts out saying, "I knew it!" When Rachel says, "It's not that common, it doesn't happen to every guy, and it is a big deal!" is this just a Chandler moment or is there another joke I have missed?

Answer: The statements that she's contradicting (that it is common, it happens to every guy, and it's not a big deal), are the things that a woman commonly says to a man who is suffering from erectile difficulty, typically to assuage his bruised ego. However, most men do not believe that these statements are true, as evidenced by Chandler's outburst. He's so caught up in the proof that women are lying about it that he gives himself away.
