The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Rachel arrives at Central Perk, Monica introduces her to everybody, including to Chandler, as if they don't know each other. In later episodes, we learn that Chandler met Monica and Rachel a couple of times when they were in high school (including when Monica cut his toe off). Chandler even kissed Rachel once, and since Chandler always says that he hasn't kissed many women, he should have perfectly remembered Rachel, and Monica should have remembered that the two of them knew each other.

The One Where the Monkey Gets Away - S1-E19

Other mistake: When Rachel's watching the soap opera on TV while babysitting Marcel, she and Marcel are sitting in the middle of the couch, but in the closeup of Dr. Francis we can see the reflection of the empty couch at the bottom of the TV screen.

The One with the Evil Orthodontist - S1-E20

Other mistake: This is the episode where a guy across from Monica's apartment is spying on them. Joey says he caught him spying into his and Chandler's apartment yesterday. This is impossible considering the layout of the building i.e. the fact that the only part of Joey and Chandler's apartment which faces toward the spying guy has the stairwell and hallway blocking it from view (not to mention the protruding part of Monica's apartment). There is another window in Joey's apartment but it faces completely the wrong direction. The bathroom has no windows. The angles just don't add up. (00:00:40)

The One Where Nana Dies Twice - S1-E8

Other mistake: When Ross is helping choose a dress and shoes for Nana to wear, he is behind the chest of drawers in the cupboard. He looks in a shoebox and finds lots of pink sweet'n low packets, then pulls down another box and lots of packets fall down on him. However, it is obvious that someone is above him showering the packets down, as they are coming from directly above him, not from on top of the door. (00:12:35)

The One with the Sonogram at the End - S1-E2

Other mistake: At the beginning when you see outside the museum, there's a man in a red t-shirt looking at the camera.

The One with the Butt - S1-E6

Other mistake: When Joey announces that he has a job in the new Al Pacino movie, Ross is holding a bottle of peach Snapple with part of its brand name whited out, so it reads "S pple" on the label.

The One with All the Poker - S1-E18

Season 1 generally

Other mistake: At the first shot of Central Perk, in "The One With The Monkey" and "The One With The Dozen Lasagnas", you can see they used the same footage twice because the same three people are having the same conversation in both episodes.

Casual Person

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Other mistake: Ross is a paleontologist but is seen working with the display on early humans which would be more of a job for an anthropologist.

The One Where Rachel Finds Out - S1-E24

Other mistake: When Rachel leaves the apartment to pursue Ross to the airport, she is turning to the left when she exits the apartment. The stairs are to the right.

The One with the Stoned Guy - S1-E15

Other mistake: Mid episode when Monica turns off the cordless phone after being told by Wendy that she can not make it, the phone makes the "out of range" audio tone instead of the "power off" audio tone. Occurs directly as Monica says, "Wendy, we had a deal, yeah, you promised. Wendy, Wendy, Wendy.".

Wes

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Other mistake: Ross says that he was at Disneyland with Carol and got caught hooking up on Small World and asked to "never to return to the Magic Kingdom." Disneyland is in California and the Magic Kingdom is part of Disney World in Florida. (00:06:10)
