Visible crew/equipment: When Monica, Ross, Chandler and Rachel are at the apartment and Rachel is suggesting how funny Chandler is, as soon as Ross says, "Sweetie, calm down it's going to be OK," a boom mic can be seen for a short period of time, at the top of the screen. (00:13:35)

Michael Fitzgerald

The One With The Dollhouse - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: When Monica is telling Rachel that guys always say they are going to call, but it doesn't mean they will, she is eating yogurt; in the next shot she has a cup ready to drink out of. (00:14:30)

Pam-I-am

The One With Phoebe's Ex-Partner - S3-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Monica and Chandler are discussing the date he had with Ginger, when he says, "She's great looking," two stage lights are visible in the background. This mistake is visible for a long period of time, where it's slightly visible, shown in shadows, and largely visible as Chandler and Monica are talking. (00:14:30)

Michael Fitzgerald

The One With The Tiny T-Shirt - S3-E19

The One Where Ross And Rachel Take A Break - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Phoebe are eating with the diplomat and his translator, watch the translator's chocolate cake. It either rotates, has some taken out of it, or is a different piece. Whichever way, the cake changes size, shape or position without him ever touching it. (00:18:10)

David Mercier

The One With Ross's Thing - S3-E23

Other mistake: When Ross goes to see Guru Saj, he has his 'thing' removed. However, it is really obvious that Guru is not going anywhere near the thing, because you can see that Ross' shirt is still tucked into his trousers, and the Guru just rubs his hands along the shirt. (00:16:35)

The One With The Ultimate Fighting Champion - S3-E24

Continuity mistake: When Robin Williams calls Billy Crystal a b*stard, Monica's purse goes from on her lap to being on her shoulder. (00:01:30)

Pam-I-am

The One With All The Jealousy - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When Ross and Rachel are talking about his playdate with the stripper, a lady in a black vest talks to the people at the table behind them, then goes to the bar and shakes hands with a lady in a black jacket. She does all this again in another shot. (00:19:30)

The One With The Flashback - S3-E6

Revealing mistake: When Monica offers Joey lemonade and he takes off his clothes and is behind the lamp, the tops of his boxer shorts are visible when he says "Were you just gonna give me lemonade?" Broadcasts may crop off this bottom part, DVD doesn't. You can also see his gray boxer shorts through the plant in the previous shot.

The One Without The Ski Trip - S3-E17

Continuity mistake: Just before Ross leaves the rest stop, Phoebe goes over to him and says,"Maybe we can see a movie or something. Or the rodeo." When she says this, she takes a step back from Ross twice. (00:20:20)

The One With The Princess Leia Fantasy - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Joey says "we'll call that plan B, all right?", Monica has her chin in her hand. When it cuts to a different angle, she's got both arms on the table. Rachel also goes from having both hands clasped under her chin to having one arm resting on the table and one reaching for coffee. (00:05:10)

The One The Morning After - S3-E16

Pam-I-am

The One With The Princess Leia Fantasy - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: Near the start when Janice is touching Joey's cheek in his apartment, Joey is seen from the front, and he is not holding anything in his hands. He is then shown from the side and he is holding a box of cookies or something similar. (00:02:25)

The One Where No One's Ready - S3-E2

Other mistake: When Monica beeps into Richard's machine and changes the outgoing message, she always presses the same two buttons when trying to interact with his machine, but gets a different result each time. (00:19:00)

The One The Morning After - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Phoebe get excited about being a "Waxine girl", Monica puts the mop upright against the counter and the mop falls over, but in Phoebe's closeup we see the mop is still upright behind her. (00:06:20)

The One With The Girl From Poughkeepsie - S4-E10

Rachel: No accountants. Oh, and no one from, like, "legal." I don't like guys with boring jobs.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.
