Friends

The One With All The Haste - S4-E19

Revealing mistake: When they are using cards to bet on the Knicks tickets, watch Joey carefully as he goes to reshuffle the pack from behind the arm of the chair. It's obvious that there are two decks, and he is in fact switching them over. (00:13:40)

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: When Rachel first meets Paolo she's looking for the cat in candlelight, holding the candle in front of her. You can see her shadow on the wall, as well as the shadow of the candle, revealing that the light is not coming from the candle. (00:07:25 - 00:14:30)

The Last One (1) - S10-E19

Revealing mistake: When Chandler and Monica try to change the babies, Courtney Cox's pregnant belly is visible. (00:16:20)

The One With The Flashback - S3-E6

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.

The One Where Rachel Has a Baby, part 2 - S8-E24

Revealing mistake: When Rachel's baby is born, she is held up for Rachel and Ross to see, and she has no umbilical cord. There is no way the cord could have been cut that quickly. (00:34:15)

The One With Joey's Dirty Day - S4-E14

Revealing mistake: After Joey is caught in Charlton Heston's shower, he wraps a towel around his waist and sits on the arm of chair. You can see the line of the Speedo underwear under the towel. (00:15:55)

The One With Chandler's Dad - S7-E22

Revealing mistake: In the shot of the highway with Ross and Rachel in the Porsche before the police officer walks to them, it is very obvious that the people inside the car are not actually them.

2

The One With The Birthing Video - S8-E15

Revealing mistake: When Monica gets out of her room to show Chandler her sexy clothing, as she opens the room's door, the buildings from across the street move. The scenario was a curtain and the wind that the door made when she opened it on the set made those curtains with the buildings printed in move. (00:06:25)

The One After Joey And Rachel Kiss - S10-E1

Revealing mistake: Just as they are getting ready to leave Barbados, Ross goes to speak to Chandler in the hotel room. The view outside the window is obviously a painting, or hanging. (00:10:55)

The One Where Monica and Richard Are Just Friends - S3-E13

The One Where Chandler Doesn't Like Dogs - S7-E8

Revealing mistake: While Monica is sneaking the dog back to her apartment and Chandler is in the toilet, as Monica lifts her hand to her mouth she whispers, "Up!" to get the dog to stick its head out of the handbag. (00:15:00)

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Revealing mistake: When Ross's date turns the lights down he can speak and yet the whiteness of his teeth doesn't show. (00:17:25)

The One with the Dozen Lasagnas - S1-E12

Revealing mistake: When Rachel throws Paulo's clothes over the balcony, they land on the corner of the building, yet the balcony isn't near the corner as there are bedrooms between the place where she throws them and the edge of the building. (00:17:15)

Dwarf

The One With The Triplets - S5-E3

Revealing mistake: When the doctor says, "Here comes the head," it is very obvious that there are feet coming out. (00:14:50)

1

The One With The Giant Poking Device - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Chandler confronts Janice about Joey seeing her kissing her ex-husband, Janice begins to hyperventilate. However, right before Chandler gives her the paper bag, Janice spins around and places the receipt in her mouth. Conveniently, after she begins breathing into the bag, she "chokes" on a receipt.

2

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Revealing mistake: When Pheobe and Ross hit heads whilst in the cab on the bridge, they only just tap heads. Not enough to make them scream in pain. (00:05:15)

The One Where No One Proposes - S9-E1

Revealing mistake: When Rachel is breastfeeding Emma for the first time, the baby's head is constantly moving in the same repetitive pattern suggesting it is one of those life-like dolls. Babies do not move their heads like that. (00:08:20)

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Revealing mistake: Joey's bucket of chicken is, rather obviously, a KFC bucket with "Finger Lickin' Chicken" stuck over the original KFC lettering - you can even see the picture of Col. Sanders. (00:17:10)

Season 4 generally

Revealing mistake: Before Phoebe agrees to carry Frank and Alice's' triplets, she already has a baby bump.

Friends mistake picture

The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding. (00:05:15)

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.
