The One Where the Monkey Gets Away - S1-E19

New this week Continuity mistake: When Rachel tells Ross that she "kind of lost" Marcel it cuts to an exterior shot from the balcony, and if we look past Rachel and Ross we see there's a table against the wall, under the Maïna La Voyante poster, but that table does not exist in previous or following shots.

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

New this month Continuity mistake: When Ross shows Chandler and Joey the can of "Carol's favorite beer" it's unopened as Ross makes a crack about how he "should have known," but in the next shot we see Ross lifting the can and drinking from it, even though he never actually pulled open the stay-tab between the two shots (viewed in widescreen). (00:09:55)

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: The number of the flats near the start of the first series was 4 and 5. After a few shows they changed to 19 and 20. [The producers realised that the numbers 4 and 5 were for apartments on the lower floors and had shown Monica's apartment to be much higher up so they changed the numbers - it's still a mistake but there's the reason.]

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: In the pilot episode, the guy Rachel left at the altar is called Barry Finkel. In all the other episodes his name is Barry Farber.

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: Mr Heckles's apartment number changes from 8 to 5.

The One with the Boobies - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: We've seen the arrangement of Joey and Chandler's bathroom in two previous episodes (1x3, The One with the Thumb, and 1x12, The One with the Dozen Lasagnas) with the sink opposite the bathroom door. In this episode the sink is relocated and the bath/shower is now opposite the bathroom door, for the rest of the series.

Mistakes

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.
