Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the episode, Ross and Chandler come into Monica's apartment and Ross asks where Rachel is. Watch the objects in Monica's hands, in the shot from behind she puts them on the table, and then does it again in the shot from the front.
Continuity mistake: When Rachel and Phoebe are talking in the Baby Beauty Contest and Rachel is holding Emma, Emma's head instantly changes position between shots several times, often going through 180 degrees. Clearly they couldn't get her to do the scene in one take and therefore the editing suffers.
Continuity mistake: Ross claims he looks into Monica and Chandler's and watches them eating dinner and watching TV. His apartment is a floor lower down than theirs and with the balcony wall, the sofa and tables distance from the window and the fact the bottom of the window is higher than the floor, there is no way Ross would be able to see that far in. We have seen in the past that he can basically only see who is at the window.
Continuity mistake: When Monica comes round to Phoebe's, Phoebe reminds her that she's got to clear out stuff. In this wide shot Monica has both hands by her sides, but when it cuts to her finishing saying "oh right", her right hand is now gripping her bag's strap.
Continuity mistake: When Ross and Rachel are pushing Emma on the swing, the legs of Emma's pants change position several times between shots. At first they are pulled up with her legs exposed, then they are down further, and in the last shot when Ross gets kicked, they are pulled up again.
Continuity mistake: When Charlie and Benjamin are at the restaurant, Benjamin says "I can't believe you chose this restaurant. You remember that night?" To which Charlie replies "I can't believe they let us back in here." However in "The One with the Fertility Test" Charlie has never been to New York before.
Continuity mistake: At the end of this episode, Ross enters the door of Joey's apartment and finds Rachel and Joey kissing. Rachel says "I'm so sorry". The next episode, The One When Ross Is Fine, shows the same scene but it has been changed: Rachel never says "I'm so sorry". Joey starts talking when Ross enters the room.
Continuity mistake: After Ross announces his tenure, when Rachel starts crying and tells him that she got fired and didn't get the other job, her right hand is up by her face, but in the next shot her right hand is holding the glass of champagne and it's her left hand up by her face.

Continuity mistake: After Ross decides to go after Rachel, in the overhead shot all four of the cab's doors are closed, but when it cuts to Ross and Phoebe getting in and shutting their front doors suddenly both back passenger doors are inexplicably wide open, then when Ross shouts about missing seatbelts both back doors are closed again. Then when the guy gets into the back seat he shuts his door, but when he asks for the medallion number both back doors are open, and then they're closed again.

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe's driving Ross to the airport in her cab the rear view mirror vanishes from the windshield, then it reappears and disappears again. Additionally, when they start their drive the cab doesn't have a side view mirror on the passenger side, but en route the cab has acquired one, then it vanishes again.

Continuity mistake: Just after the opening titles cut to Central Perk, four people can be seen having a conversation through the window. In the next shot, there is one person sitting next to the window and a waitress has appeared out of nowhere.
Continuity mistake: Chandler, Monica and Phoebe are shown listening at the wall between their room and the room Ross is in with Charlie. However, when Ross comes into the room, the outside hallway is shown, and it is clear that the wall they were listening at actually connects to the hallway, not another room. Ross even walks in that direction when he leaves, proving it's not a dead end or similar.
Continuity mistake: When Ross and Chandler are talking about who broke which pact in college (the girls they agreed not to date) they are standing at the drinks table. Chandler is holding a drink in his left hand and his right hand is in his pants pocket. The shot then changes to face Ross, Chandler does not remove his hand from his pocket, but in the next shot facing him his drink is in his right hand. He then places it on the table.
Continuity mistake: When Monica's mum and dad are leaving the party, they are standing next to each other while her dad explains why he can not drive anymore. Her mum has both hands in front of her holding on to her purse, in the next shot one arm is around Monica.
Continuity mistake: After Phoebe tells Monica that she is fired from being her wedding planner, Monica says that she has never been fired. However, in "The One with Five Steaks and an Eggplant" Monica gets fired for taking the kickbacks.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joey and Rachel are sitting on the couch in their apartment after they decide their relationship is hopeless Rachel puts her head on Joey's shoulder. Her hair is on her face but when she lifts her head up in the very next shot her hair is now behind her right ear which she couldn't have done because her hands never left her lap.
Continuity mistake: When the girls and Mr Goodbody are talking about paying him the three hundred dollars, the top buttons of his shirt are ripped open. Half way though the scene this changes to only one button being open and his shirt looking neat and pressed, as if he had not started his strip yet.
Continuity mistake: While Mama Joey is looking for Chick Jr. and Duck Jr., the things pinned to the bulletin board beside the door have vanished when Monica and Chandler walk in, but after Monica walks out to check on the twins everything's back up on the board like it was before.

Continuity mistake: When Chandler kisses Monica before letting the social worker in, she puts her hand on his arm. The camera cuts to her and she says "Tongue, really?" but her hand is by her side now. The camera cuts back to Chandler and both her hands are now out in front of her.
Continuity mistake: When Jack and Judy leave Joey's apartment, there is a birthday banner on the counter that has fallen off. When Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe are racing the toys to see who gets to go, the banner is back on. In this time no-one has fixed the banner as there is not enough time for them to do so off camera and the people on camera don't fix it. It's most clear that it's back on when Monica is saying, "Technically, our dog never crossed the finish line".

Continuity mistake: When Mike says "I am going to make this decision for us. What do you think we should do?" he is holding the check. The very next shot shows the charity worker taking the check off the desk and giving it back even though Mike never put it down.
