Revealing mistake: When Monica offers Joey lemonade and he takes off his clothes and is behind the lamp, the tops of his boxer shorts are visible when he says "Were you just gonna give me lemonade?" Broadcasts may crop off this bottom part, DVD doesn't. You can also see his gray boxer shorts through the plant in the previous shot.
Continuity mistake: In the scene after Monica pretends to drop socks in the hallway in order to prevent Rachel from telling Ross she still loves him, Rachel goes back into the apartment and locks Monica out. Monica then starts to pound on the door with her bare left hand. The scene changes to the apartment and Ross opens the door to let Monica in. All of a sudden Monica is pounding the door with her right hand wrapped in a sock. (This continuity problem is for the widescreen version, where we see a closeup of Monica not seen on the DVD, in the hallway with a bare hand right before Ross opens the door. However, on the DVD there are extra shots of Ross and Rachel after seeing Monica's bare hand pounding and then seeing her with the sock on her hand, which gives her ample time to put it on).
Continuity mistake: Monica and Chandler are in their apartment talking about Monica's worries that Chandler would dump her if she put on weight. When we first see Monica, the bite mark in her apple is quite small, but a few seconds later, it is suddenly much bigger without her eating any more of it.
Continuity mistake: When the group is sitting around the table in Monica's apartment playing poker, Monica is making something to eat. When she puts it on the table and sits back, we can see a pile of plates on the table on her right side. But in the next shot, the plates are gone.
Visible crew/equipment: When Monica shuts the TV off while watching skiing, there is a closeup of the screen as it goes blank. You can see reflected in the blank screen an image of a man in a long sleeved shirt and tie, who does not correspond to any of the characters in the room.
Continuity mistake: In the final scene Rachel passes out copies of her draft for her book. She gives out all her copies and asks for their opinion. However, near the end of the scene after waving her arms around empty handed a copy of her script magically appears in her hands.
00:21:10 - 00:21:45
Continuity mistake: During the song at the beginning of the episode, keep your eye on Ross's mug. He is holding it in his lap, then there is a shot of Monica with Ross's empty saucer on the table. In the next shot, the mug has appeared on the saucer.
Visible crew/equipment: After Ross breaks up with Elizabeth, when she throws the water balloons at him and he starts walking away, a crew member's feet are seen standing on a windowsill behind Ross. Additionally, when Ross has exited the building, just as Elizabeth calls to him and he turns around we can see a crewmember, presumably standing beside the second camera, at the bottom left corner of the screen. We know it's not a passerby because he is as tall as the second story window behind him, which means he's elevated on a platform or ladder.
