The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Rachel takes the cat to apartment number 8 and Mr. Heckles opens the door. However, in this episode, the girls' apartment is labeled number 5 which means that number 8 is above them. In later episodes, Mr. Heckles always says that the noisy girls upstairs are keeping him from doing things. [It makes a bit more sense later on in the series when Monica and Rachel's appartment changes to number 20, which is when Mr Heckles starts to complain about the noise (although in the flash back episode when Phoebe is still living with Monica it seems apparent that they actually know Mr Heckles, which Phoebe shows no sign of when she and Rachel are looking for the owner of the cat).] (00:13:40)

The One with the Butt - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: In the scene just before Joey goes into the shower, when he is thanking the director for the opportunity, the camera shot goes back and forth between Joey and the director several times. During this series of shots, the part in Joey's hair switches sides nearly every time. It appears that the entire shot is reversed - in the closeup, the shower curtain is on his left and the shadow to his right is sharply focused. In the lower (long) shot, the curtain is to his right, and the shadow on his left is more focused. (00:13:05)

The One Where Underdog Gets Away - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: Chandler is able to get into Monica's apartment to tell everyone that Underdog got away, but later when Rachel closes the door it is now locked. We can see the door as each person is leaving and nobody does anything which could be construed as locking the door before it closes. It's been often demonstrated in the show that the door doesn't lock automatically. (00:13:20)

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene when Phoebe breaks into the other Phoebe's house and gets caught, the older Phoebe was telling the younger one that the man in the photo is not Frank Buffay, but is Chuck Mangioni. Right after that, as Phoebe 2 walks towards the camera, you can see that the door behind her moves open, and there is a visible shadow of someone who walks by that doorway. (00:19:00)

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.
