The One With The Ring - S6-E23

Plot hole: In the opening scene Phoebe and Chandler discuss how Phoebe knows Chandler is going to propose: by walking in on him whilst he was looking at a ring catalogue on the toilet. However, in the previous episode Chandler leaves the apartment right after he found out about Monica booking the wedding slot (on the answerphone) and doesn't come back until he 'freaks out' at Monica and then it is revealed that it was just put on and Phoebe is in on the plan. It doesn't add up, as Chandler would have had to have been looking at the catalogue between hearing the message and deciding to propose, in the same afternoon when he wasn't even in the apartment.

The One With Joey's Porsche - S6-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When the camera follows Phoebe as she is going to clean up the vase she knocked over, the foot of the baby is still visible in the shot and you can see how someone picked it up as the foot goes straight up. Then as the camera moves back revealing there are only 2 babies, you can see a shadow of a crew member moving on the ground. (00:16:00)

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

Continuity mistake: Right after Monica says, "You wanted it to be a surprise", the camera pans to Joey who shuts the door firmly, however in the next shot you can see the door gliding back open and then shutting again. (00:18:40)

The One With The Joke - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: In the scene in the coffee shop where Joey tells his friends about him closing down the coffee shop when he went to the audition, as Rachel says "He left work in the middle of the day to do a personal errand?" two men walk past behind the group. As she continues talking just a few moments later, the same exact men walk past again.

The One With The Apothecary Table - S6-E11

Visible crew/equipment: Right after the "I'll Be There For You" intro, the camera shows the view from outside the "Central Perk" café. As it does so, a couple of stage lights are visible through the upper part of the window, obviously part of the set on the inside of the building.

The One Where Ross Meets Elizabeth's Dad - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: When Chandler is about to put the toilet paper on the table, the picture with the little girl is facing Phoebe. In the next shot, the picture is facing Chandler. Two shots later, it's facing Phoebe again, and then Chandler again in the next shot. (00:08:15)

The One Where Paul's The Man - S6-E22

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Rachel is trying to hide Ross from Paul, when he's about to go into Paul's bedroom after he says "Did you really hear a bear?", look at the window behind Rachel when the shot is on her. You can see a large light reflected in the glass and it moves slightly (not just in conjunction with the camera, it moves before the camera shifts).

The One With The Apothecary Table - S6-E11

Audio problem: When Phoebe puts her feet up on Ross' apothecary table, Ross asks her not to put her feet up on his "new...old sheet." During the pause right after he says "new," there's a cut to a different angle and you can see his mouth form the words "old sheet." Then it cuts to a different angle and we actually see and hear Ross say "old sheet." (00:12:05)

The One Where Ross Got High - S6-E9

Plot hole: Monica is trusting Rachel to make a traditional English trifle and being a top chef (or an even averagely intelligent human being) she would know what ingredients are used in one. So there's no way she could have missed Rachel cooking beef with peas and onions during the cooking process. Rachel's cooking it right there in Monica's kitchen while everyone else is there!

The One With Mac & C.H.E.E.S.E. - S6-E20

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.

The One With Mac & C.H.E.E.S.E. - S6-E20

Other mistake: When we see the chess board at Central Perk that Ross and Chandler are using, the black pawn in front of the black knight nearest the camera is missing, and from the arrangement of the white pieces, it cannot have been captured yet.

Knever

The One With Mac & C.H.E.E.S.E. - S6-E20

Visible crew/equipment: A stage light can be seen at the top left hand side of the screen just after Joey slams the door shut after practising a scene with Phoebe. It is visible in front of the blue picture on the wall.

The One Where Ross Hugs Rachel - S6-E2

Audio problem: In the pre-theme-song scene, with Phoebe and Ross talking outside the coffeehouse, when Phoebe sends Rachel away in the cab for the second time the sound of the tyres screeching starts while the cab is still stationary.

Craig

The One With The 'Cuffs - S4-E3

Joanna: What are you doing?
Chandler: I'm getting dressed.
Joanna: Why?
Chandler: Because when I go outside naked, people throw garbage at me.

Trivia: Matthew Perry's wit is so legendary that the scriptwriters have often incorporated his gags into the show.

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.
