The One With Chandler In A Box - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: In the episode with Chandler in a box, when Rachel is showing Ross all the things she had kept from their relationship in a shoe box, her hair is tucked behind her ear in most shots, but when she says "I keep the gifts that matter", it's all loose, then goes back to how it was in the following shot. Also in the shot before that line she's pointing the fossil at Ross, but when it cuts to a front view she's pointing it upwards. (00:16:30)

The One Where They're Going To PARTY! - S4-E9

Revealing mistake: When Monica and Phoebe are in Central Perk, Phoebe is looking through the list of ideas that Monica has come up with for the use of Phoebe's van. If you look closely (most obvious just after Phoebe says "let's plan the wedding reception") you can see that every single page of the notebook Phoebe is holding has the same thing written on it, instead of lots of different ideas that Monica is meant to have had. (00:17:10)

The One With Joey's Dirty Day - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mr Heston confronts Joey about using the shower, Mr Heston points at Joey from a seated position. As the shots switch Mr Heston's "pointing" hand also switches. (00:16:30)

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: When Ross takes a bite of the cookies, he says they are not good, and puts it back in the box; in the next wide shot he is seen putting it back in the box again. (00:03:15)

The One Where They're Going To PARTY! - S4-E9

Revealing mistake: When Phoebe is looking at the front page of the "Chelsea Reporter," Monica says her restaurant review is on the back page. However, Phoebe doesn't turn to the back page, but merely flips the paper over, looking at the bottom of the front page (and finding the review there). (00:07:30)

The One With Joey's Dirty Day - S4-E14

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is asking Ross if he will take Emily to the opera, the amount of biscuit in his hand changes throughout. (00:06:15)

The One With The Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode where they are watching Ross through the window, Phoebe is leaning forward and standing to the left of the pole next to Chandler. When the shot changes to Ross coming through the door, she is suddenly standing up straight and is now behind Joey and Chandler. (00:00:10)

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 1 - S4-E23

The One With The Ballroom Dancing - S4-E4

Other mistake: Right at the end of the episode, Phoebe's got a job interview. We see the outside of a massage parlour, but the name on the awning has been superimposed - it moves about a bit while the shot itself is still. (00:20:45)

The One With Joey's New Girlfriend - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: In the bar, Kathy is trying to set Chandler up with one of her friends. When the camera is facing Chandler, we see Kathy's hand rubbing Joey's back, but when it cuts to a front shot of Joey and Kathy, her arm is down in front of her. Then without having had enough time to move, her elbow is up on the table and she is holding hands with Joey. (00:16:10)

2

The One With All The Haste - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: Phoebe comes in wearing Santa pants. When Joey and Chandler point this out, Chandler's legs are crossed or uncrossed, depending on the camera angle. (00:04:10)

The One With All The Wedding Dresses - S4-E20

Visible crew/equipment: After Ross announces that he and Emily will be getting married in a month, there's a shot of Joey and Chandler, and when it cuts back to Ross saying, "Yup!" the reflection of the boom mic can be seen on the framed picture hanging on the bathroom door.

The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Visible crew/equipment: In Joey and Chandler's apartment, when Joey is with talking to the stripper about the duck and chicken, the edge of the set is visible where Joey's bedroom is supposed to be. The wall stops short after only a couple feet [widescreen version]. (00:09:00)

The One With Joey's New Girlfriend - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: Chandler is chasing Kathy down the street trying to get her attention. During a close-up of him running, just before the camera cuts away we see a guy's face on the left; when it cuts back to Chandler he runs for a while and then encounters the same guy (the dog-walker). Also, when he finally lands in front of Kathy, there is a bike rider coming towards them, but as the camera cuts back and forth between the two, the rider never passes them. (00:11:30)

The One With The Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Visible crew/equipment: When Rachel says, "And not a coupon for an hour of Joey love," the stage lights are reflected in the tv. (00:04:50)

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.
