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. In one shot (as she says "I'm a horrible person"), the strap is all the way down her arm and then in the next shot it is tucked under her shirt.
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.

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.

Continuity mistake: When Janine goes into the hallway to apologize to Monica about her behavior at dinner, she runs into Monica who says, "What did I tell you about the hall?" As she says this, she is pointing her right forefinger at Janine and her right shoulder is leaned in closer to her. When Janine says "I was just coming over here to apologize for my behavior," the camera cuts to Monica, who is now standing with her left shoulder leaning in toward her. The camera cuts back to Janine as she says "I'd really like it if we could be friends" and then back to Monica for her next line, where she again has switched to her right shoulder leaning toward Janine.
Continuity mistake: Phoebe knocks over a vase and has to clean it up because "Let's face it; we're at Monica's."

Continuity mistake: While Monica and Chandler confront Janine in Joey's apartment, we can see the drawing of the fire breathing dragon and the ape on the Empire State building on the Magna Doodle, then when Joey tells Chandler and Monica to leave because he needs to talk to Janine, the drawing differs - note the dragon's scales, its position, the building, etc.

Continuity mistake: As Chandler is writing on the board to remind himself about Joey's audition, the door opens as he's writing "Joey", and there are a bunch of squiggly lines under the y. As Chandler is thinking back at that moment and it moves to present tense, he looks over to the board, and the squiggly lines are different.
