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.

The One with the East German Laundry Detergent - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: While Chandler is trying to break up with Janice, and Phoebe comes to help, a cameraman is visible in the background (outside of Central Perk) walking from right to left. The camera cuts away from the window angle, then cuts back, showing another cameraman walking from left to right.

The One with the Dozen Lasagnas - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is talking with Phoebe about Paolo,. she unrolls some kitchen paper and uses it as a tissue. Initially she's holding two torn halves attached to the roll, then when saying "He's a pig" it goes to a whole sheet not attached to any others, then when she sits down it's a whole sheet attached to the roll again. Plus when Phoebe sits too, in some shots the paper is on the table, in others it's not.

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).]

The One with the Dozen Lasagnas - S1-E12

Plot hole: At the end when Phoebe and Monica are sitting at the table eating the meat lasagna, Phoebe would not eat this as she is a vegetarian.

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.

The One Where Rachel Finds Out - S1-E24

Visible crew/equipment: When Rachel is on the balcony with her date, after she kisses Ross and says, "Wow!", the shot changes back to her date. While he is saying, "Exactly" you can see a camera man on the left side of the screen. Then when the shot changes to show Rachel and her date you can see him move out of the shot.

The One with the Butt - S1-E6

Revealing mistake: After Chandler asks the woman out, he runs back over to the group shouting, "She said yes! She said yes!" As he does this Joey can be seen mouthing the line.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene when Rachel is sleeping next to Ross, you can see part of the mattress behind the sofa which cushions his fall later on when he trips.

The One Where Underdog Gets Away - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: Whenever Monica's apartment is shot from the point of view of the balcony looking in, fake walls have to be put up across the room to cover the open space (since there is no wall there usually). When the friends are looking out the window at Ugly Naked Guy and his girlfriend in this episode, you can see that the rear wall does not extend nearly far enough - there is a large black space behind Monica.

The One with the East German Laundry Detergent - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: When Rachel says, "If you want this cart you're gonna have to take me with it.", you can see Ross mouth "with it" behind her.

The One with Two Parts: Part 1 - S1-E16

Revealing mistake: If you look closely you can see that the name of the restaurant "Riff's" is printed on by computer in post-production.

The One with the Thumb - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe visits Lizzie, Lizzie is feeding the pigeons with her right hand. In the next shot, a plastic bag has appeared in her left hand from nowhere.

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.

The One with the Dozen Lasagnas - S1-E12

Visible crew/equipment: When Ross is on the balcony trying to comfort Rachel after she has split up with Paolo, we see a couple of shots from the balcony looking into Monica's apartment. If you look at the top of the screen you can see where the walls of the set end, and all the stage lights hanging from the ceiling of the studio.

The One with the Stoned Guy - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: When the stoned guy eats all the shrimp ravioli, he eats everything including the garnish. When we next see the plate, the garnish has returned.
