The One That Could Have Been, part 2 - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: Rachel is talking to Joey in his apartment after waking up the next morning, looking messy and rumpled. As she talks, her bra strap slips down her arm.

The One Where Chandler Can't Cry - S6-E14

Continuity mistake: When they're watching the vampire video, Monica, Chandler, and Rachel are sitting on the couch, but in the closeups of the TV we can see the couch in the reflection and it's empty.

The One With Ross's Denial - S6-E3

The One With Unagi - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: Just before Chandler gives Monica the mixed tape, he tries to manipulate a coat hanger into something feasible. He stretches it out and holds it up, saying "Yes, honey, I made it myself," then the camera cuts to another angle as he throws it down. After the cut the hanger is not as stretched as it was before. (00:10:40)

The One Where Chandler Can't Cry - S6-E14

Continuity mistake: In the previous episode Monica had a very bad cold. This episode carries on immediately after the end of the last one (Monica's still in her dressing gown from earlier), but Monica isn't coughing or sneezing at all anymore. (00:00:05)

The One That Could Have Been, part 1 - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joey gives Chandler the orange juice and says sorry, the paper cup's logo faces Joey's hand, then the shot goes to Chandler and when it comes back, the logo on the cup faces Chandler. (00:15:15)

The One With The Proposal, part 2 - S6-E25

Continuity mistake: When Monica is in Richard's apartment she gets all worked up, so Richard gives her a hug to calm her down. She goes into the hug with her arms curled up in front of her face, but when the camera angle changes, they are at Richard's back. (00:13:50)

The One With The Apothecary Table - S6-E11

Continuity mistake: In the previous episode, Monica's Christmas tree is up in her apartment. After the party, Joey kisses Janine. In the next episode, he walks into Monica's apartment and says he just kissed her. However, Monica's tree is down and they have all changed their clothes. Surely if he just kissed her then it is still the same night of the party, therefore the tree should be up and Monica, Ross and Joey should be wearing the same clothes from the party. (00:00:05)

The One Where Chandler Can't Cry - S6-E14

Continuity mistake: When Chandler throws his copy of "Chicken Soup for the Soul" under the sofa and it goes across the floor to Monica's feet, she kneels down to pick it up by the counter next to the door, but when she rises, she's next to a chair that's under the table. (00:12:20)

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the coffee house, Phoebe is talking to Monica who is drinking a cup of coffee.

In the right hand corner is a side view of 'Monica' however, it is not Courtney Cox in the scene, but a completely different actress. [Widescreen version only, although the "wrong" nose is visible in the original]. (00:06:20)

The One With The Jellyfish - S4-E1

Question: When Ross and Rachel are fighting, Chandler hides behind the door and bursts out saying "I knew it." When Rachel says, "It's not that common, it doesn't happen to every guy and it is a big deal.", is this just a Chandler moment or is there another joke I have missed?

Answer: The statements that she's contradicting (that it is common, it happens to every guy, and it's not a big deal), are the things that a woman commonly says to a man who is suffering from erectile difficulty, typically to assuage his bruised ego. However, most men do not believe that these statements are true, as evidenced by Chandler's outburst. He's so caught up in the proof that women are lying about it that he gives himself away.
