When he rushes over to Ross' building he walks down the hall and knocks on what he believes to be Hot Girl's door. In these shots he is wearing a dark purple button up shirt. As soon as Ross answers the door, Joey is wearing the black top with a zip again.

xx:xx:xx

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: In the flashback where Joey sticks the turkey on his head, the subtitle says Thanksgiving 1992. However, the show started in 1994 and Joey didn't move in until the previous fall, so the earliest Thanksgiving that he was there would have been 1993.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the interrogation room, the blinds behind Phoebe keep going from open to closed in different shots.

xx:xx:xx

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joey has just brought home his date, he jiggles the door handle, which makes Monica and Chandler run off into Chandler's room. Chandler kicks a circle cushion off the mat, but when the camera cuts back, it's on the mat again, and then off the mat again when Rachel walks in. A red cushion also moves.

xx:xx:xx

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Monica puts the sunglasses and hat on the turkey, she puts the glasses on where the arms are over the wings of the turkey. But in next shot the arms of the glasses are completely under the wings.

xx:xx:xx

Bobbert

The One With The Ball - S5-E21

Audio problem: When Rachel is trying to sell the cat and someone looks the hiss is a clear overdub.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

xx:xx:xx

Friends mistake picture

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: In Central Perk, when Phoebe writes a note for Ross to put on his sandwich so no one eats it, she mentions that she stabbed a cop, and has a green mug in her hand. It cuts to Monica then back to Phoebe and the mug is out of her hand and she's yelling, "He stabbed me first." When it cuts back to the wide shot the mug is back in Phoebe's hand.

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: Phoebe is complaining about people disrespecting her charity bucket, and hands the bucket to Monica as she does so. In the first two shots Monica holds the bucket by its edge, but when the camera goes back to her for a third time, she is holding the bucket by its handle.

xx:xx:xx

The One With Joey's Bag - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: There is a shot of Phoebe in Central Perk about to talk to Frank (from outside, looking in). From this shot there are several people outside Central Perk. The camera does an instant cut to behind Phoebe, (inside, looking outside) and the people have vanished.

The One With Rachel's Inadvertent Kiss - S5-E17

Revealing mistake: When Ross is doing his "Watching TV" bit, there is a brief shot of the blank screen that he is sitting on the sofa pretending to watch. In the screen's reflection, it is clear that the sofa is empty.

xx:xx:xx

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Revealing mistake: When Joey has the turkey on his head, and Chandler is by the door, look at the wall to Chandler's right. It's a "wild wall" - i.e., a movable wall put there to extend the set outward an additional few feet, since the camera normally doesn't see that far forward. The wall angles oddly away from the room, and you can see how the line and pattern of the hallway floor continues into the room.

xx:xx:xx

Friends mistake picture

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe's trying to make the TV work at the beginning, in the close-ups and the first wide shot the remote's at an angle, but in the second wide shot it's straight. It then goes back to being at an angle.

xx:xx:xx

Jon Sandys

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene where they take Chandler to the hospital, Monica hands the bag of ice containing Chandler's toe to the doctor. The doctor is wearing gloves in one shot then no gloves in the next. This goes back and forth three or four times.

xx:xx:xx

Friends mistake picture

The One With The Yeti - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: Ross is in his apartment, and he is saying he will miss it. Throughout the scene, the phone appears and disappears from beside the charger cradle.

xx:xx:xx

Pam-I-am

The One After Ross Says Rachel - S5-E1

Revealing mistake: When Chandler and Monica (and later Joey) are talking on the plane on the way back from London, the little display screen (showing a map of the Atlantic and coastlines) in front of Monica's seat shows the little grey plane indicating their position and direction. The plane is facing east, as though they are travelling towards London, but they are supposed to be flying back to New York.

xx:xx:xx

David Mercier

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe says she is going to "pack her ass off" she walks toward the coffee house door, and they cut to a quick shot of Joey then back to the wide shot with the door, and Phoebe has disappeared. She did not have time to make it to the door and out. (Widescreen version).

xx:xx:xx

Pam-I-am

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Audio problem: At the very end when Ross hits Rachel's stomach twice the sound doesn't match his actions.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

The One Where Phoebe Hates PBS - S5-E4

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene where Rachel is checking the mail and is walking over to Monica's room, she has a pair of pumps on, then once she has walked in on Monica and Monica runs after her to say she was taking a nap, Rachel is wearing a pair of backless high-heeled sandals, then when Joey and Ross come in, Rachel is wearing the pumps again (we see this when Ross says "I had to talk loud because the movie was loud").

xx:xx:xx

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Other mistake: When Joey comes out the bathroom in the girls' apartment with a turkey stuck on his head, the bathroom floor has the black and white tiles. But that floor wasn't there until Joey put it there in Series 3, The One With Frank Jr. So in the flashback the bathroom floor should be white tiles.

xx:xx:xx

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: When Monica puts the turkey on her head, she puts a hat on it. In the next shot the hat is not at an angle and must be held in place.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

The One With The Yeti - S5-E6

Revealing mistake: When Monica and Rachel apologise to Danny, as he shuts his door for the second time the set wall visibly shakes.

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Ball - S5-E21

Continuity mistake: Joey goes into the bathroom and the toilet is behind the door. In a previous episode, when Joey doesn't know about Chandler and Monica, he comes out of his room and thinks it is morning. He goes into the bathroom and Chandler pushes the door open to reveal Joey asleep on the toilet with his toothbrush in his mouth, only the toilet is now on the other side of the room, not behind the door.

xx:xx:xx

The One With All The Resolutions - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: When Joey and Rachel are trying to work out if the other knows about Monica and Chandler, they sit at the table in silence. In a side shot of Joey they look at each other sneakily, and Joey has his arms by his sides. It then cuts to a head-on shot of Joey, and he's got his right arm over the back of the chair.

xx:xx:xx

Jon Sandys

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Visible crew/equipment: Just as Monica finishes her story and Chandler is shown, the reflection of the stage lights is visible in the TV.

xx:xx:xx

omegaman3000

The One With The Yeti - S5-E6

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is talking to Phoebe about cremating the coat there is a mirror behind her with a laptop reflected in it. The reflection shows it switched on, but in the wider shots it is switched off.

xx:xx:xx

The One In Vegas, Part 2 - S5-E24

Factual error: When Monica rolls an 8 to buy everyone a steak dinner, the one die is positioned with a 5 and 4 facing the camera (the 5 on the left, and 4 on the right). With the die that way round a 1 is always on top. There is no other way to get the 5 and 4 combo. This means that Monica had a 7 on the other die, That is impossible. And so she did not roll an 8.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Visible crew/equipment: Monica is explaining her Thanksgiving to Chandler; when she drops the knife there is a shot looking up from the floor. A crew member's shadow is visible on the ceiling.

xx:xx:xx

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: There is a scene in Central Perk where Rachel confronts Chandler about all the kissing he's been doing. She raises her hands up in front of her and tells Chandler to hold on to stop him from getting up from the couch. As he goes to sit back down on the couch she lowers her hands to her lap. The shot cuts to an angle behind Rachel's chair and she is lowering her hands again.

xx:xx:xx

Tina Gilliam

The One Where Rachel Smokes - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: Joey's snowcone changes during the scene with Ross at the party. It goes from rounded to more flat to rounded, and from plain ice to being able to see the flavoring to ice again.

xx:xx:xx

Pam-I-am

The One With The Kips - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: In this episode, they say the reason Kip was phased out was because he dated Monica and they broke up badly. However, in the first season (in the "Dozen Lasagnes" episode) Chandler says Kip left because he got married.

xx:xx:xx

The One In Vegas, Part 2 - S5-E24

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Chandler find the dice under the craps table, it is at an angle so both the four and five appear up. When the camera changes to the last shot (the zoom in of them kissing) the dice is sitting flat on the floor.

xx:xx:xx

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: In the second scene with Phoebe and Rachel in the night class, when the camera looks over Rachel's shoulder, she has "Jane Eyre" in her hand face up, but when the angle switches to front view, she has nearly placed the book on the desk.

xx:xx:xx

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Continuity mistake: When Joey arrives in the desert there is a lot of stuff not in vans. As the director gets into his car, loads of equipment is still in the desert, but a few shots later the vans are full and leaving.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

The One In Vegas, Part 2 - S5-E24

Continuity mistake: When Pheobe is telling the Lurker to go away her hand is in the cup of coins, an instant cut later and it's out with no time to do so.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: The amount of buttons undone on Pheobe's top by Joey changes after she says, "You didn't rip any buttons." The camera cuts to Joey then back, and it has changed.

xx:xx:xx

A Demon

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Other mistake: When Joey and Chandler are in the cab on the bridge, Joey quickly stops the cab so Chandler can get out. However, on the screen behind, the background doesn't 'slow down' as Joey does, it just continues as if the cab is going at the same speed. Then, in the next shot, it is still. When Joey sets off again, the background stays the same and doesn't show that the cab is getting faster.

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Kips - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: Rachel and Phoebe are in the Central Perk, talking about leaving the group, and a jacket and a handbag are hanging on the arm of the chair behind Rachel, slightly to her left. Between shots it changes from just the jacket, then just the handbag and so on. This continues throughout the scene when Ross comes in and Phoebe leaves. As she gets up you see both again, however Rachel does not move enough to just show one and hide the other.

xx:xx:xx

Friends mistake picture

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: In the Central Perk scene where Rachel is telling Ross she loves him, Ross is sitting at the small round table. The blue cup and the white cup with the lid move positions throughout the scene.

Brad

The One With The Inappropriate Sister - S5-E10

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Triplets - S5-E3

Factual error: Joey always grabs his back when he gets his pain from his kidney stones. This is a classic referral pattern for pain when the stones are in the kidney. However, the doctor says that the kidney stones were too close to the bladder. Stones in the ureters classically refers the pain to the groin area.

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Triplets - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Alice runs towards Frank in the waiting room, there are at least two people sitting on the couch next to Frank. Immediately afterward, when Frank and Alice lie down on the couch, kissing, these people have disappeared.

xx:xx:xx

Friends mistake picture

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene after Monica pretends to drop socks in the hallway in order to prevent Rachel from telling Ross she still loves him, Rachel goes back into the apartment and locks Monica out. Monica then starts to pound on the door with her bare left hand. The scene changes to the apartment and Ross opens the door to let Monica in. All of a sudden Monica is pounding the door with her right hand wrapped in a sock. (This continuity problem is for the widescreen version, where we see a closeup of Monica not seen on the DVD, in the hallway with a bare hand right before Ross opens the door. However, on the DVD there are extra shots of Ross and Rachel after seeing Monica's bare hand pounding and then seeing her with the sock on her hand, which gives her ample time to put it on).

The One In Vegas, Part 1 - S5-E23

Visible crew/equipment: When Ross is leaving Rachel's, a stagelight can be seen by the bathroom.

The One With All The Resolutions - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: During the countdown to midnight, just as everyone says, "Happy New Year!", the camera cuts to Phoebe and Ross. In the background Joey and Rachel open their arms to hug each other; the camera cuts to just Joey and Rachel and they open their arms again.

xx:xx:xx

The One With All The Resolutions - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: When Ross first enters Elizabeth's bathroom, the lotion is first in line on the shelf; next to it is something else and then the powder. Later, the powder is first in line on the shelf and the lotion has moved.

Continuity mistake: When Rachel knocks over the cereal its position changes between shots.

Add time

Super Grover

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Factual error: Joey and Chandler are supposedly crossing the George Washington Bridge but the exterior background viewed from inside the car is very obviously a repeat reel of another bridge, and their conversation goes on for far too long for the actual crossing. And the cutaway shot after Chandler is kicked out of the car shows an aerial view of the Brooklyn Bridge.

xx:xx:xx

The One With The Kips - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: When the group is in the coffee house discussing Kip there is a bag on the table in front of Monica. When Rachel enters she places her bag on top of the bag already sitting there.

A Demon

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Factual error: When Monica is in the bath with Chandler, Joey comes in twice, forcing Monica to hide under the bubbles: first he asks Chandler if he wants some chicken, then again when Chandler calls him back and Chandler's giving Monica's order, with Monica still hidden under the bubbles. Somehow, Monica supposedly hears Chandler requesting a soda and nudges or pulls him or something to indicate he was going to get the wrong kind. But no way she could hear him under the water (stick your head in a tub and have your friend recite the alphabet, and see what I mean).

The One With The Kips - S5-E5

Plot hole: In TOW Ross tells Rachel he cannot see her following a promise to Emily, the rest of the friends go into Monica's bedroom. Joey hauls out a box from under the bed, saying that he's been hiding it there since Ross said the wrong name at the wedding. Surely Monica, with her obsession for keeping the place clean, would have noticed a box under her bed?

The One With All The Resolutions - S5-E11

Character mistake: In one of the scenes where Phoebe is teaching Joey guitar, she asks him to demonstrate the "Iceberg" chord. To refresh his memory, Joey refers to the chord as "G Sharp." In reality, the only way to play a G Sharp chord is with a barre chord, and as such the fingering is not exclusive to it.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Chandler turns on music when he and Phoebe are going to "have all the sex" you see Phoebe's arm begin to move in the right corner of the screen. When it cuts to her she has not yet begun dancing, and when he goes to turn the music on again it is a duplicate clip from the initial shot.

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Factual error: Phoebe holds up a bag of quarters that is almost the size of her head. This would be physically impossible for anyone except perhaps the world's strongest weight-lifters. Quarters are exceptionally heavy for their size. Two rolls weigh exactly a pound. It would take at least 300-400 rolls worth of quarters to fill up the bag Phoebe is holding, which means she is lifting 150-200+ pounds, primarily with one arm.

The One After Ross Says Rachel - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: Between season 4 and season 5 some of the furniture in Chandler's and Joey's hotel room is changing. In TOW Ross' Wedding the three big pictures over the beds show dark spiky plants like ferns and palm trees (as can be seen in the scene where Joey shows Chandler the video with Fergie). In this episode these pictures are completely different - they show a red flower, a sunflower and a dark green plant. The two pictures next to the door are now much smaller in bigger frames and the lamp on the night table between the beds which had a white shade in season 4, now has a black shade. The nightstand between the two beds also has a different shape.

Continuity mistake: When Rachel returns from her first interview at Ralph Lauren she takes out a bottle of water out of the fridge. In the following shot her hands are empty and there are only Chandler's and Joey's bottles on the table. Rachel's bottle reappears on the table next to Chandler's and Joey's bottles (that are also standing closer together than before) for a moment just when Chandler starts saying "Well, you could have tried not kissing him" and then vanishes again.
