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

Continuity mistake: After Chandler has written the message on the Magna Doodle, the sliding eraser moves from the right to left side just as he leaves with Monica, and when Joey and Chandler are playing foosball, the barely legible "Joey" is now neatly written on the Magna Doodle, and its sliding eraser is again back to the right side.

The One With The Apothecary Table - S6-E11

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.

The One With Joey's Porsche - S6-E5

Continuity mistake: Phoebe knocks over a vase and has to clean it up because "Let's face it; we're at Monica's."

A split second later when the shot changes the baby is sitting upright again. (00:15:15)

The One With The Joke - S6-E12

Continuity mistake: In the coffee shop Phoebe is not in the scene. After Joey puts his apron on, the camera shows Phoebe is next to Rachel. Monica asks Joey if he works there, he says no, a customer calls "waiter" and in a full view of the coffee shop Phoebe is no longer there. (00:09:45 - 00:10:55)

The One Where Ross Got High - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe finishes telling Rachel about her thanksgiving dream about Jack, Chandler is looking straight ahead with his arms crossed. Cut to the next shot when Jack and Judy are coming out of Monica and Chandler's room, and his arms are immediately uncrossed and he's looking at the women. (00:20:05)

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

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the episode when Joey tells Chandler that he hasn't forgiven him for kissing one of his sisters, Monica and Chandler's TV, entertainment set and ferns are missing from the set and there are cables protruding from the wall. The area is completely bare except for the French poster. Everything's back to normal slightly later in the episode.

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 At The Beach - S3-E25

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene when Phoebe breaks into the other Phoebe's house and gets caught, the older Phoebe was telling the younger one that the man in the photo is not Frank Buffay, but is Chuck Mangioni. Right after that, as Phoebe 2 walks towards the camera, you can see that the door behind her moves open, and there is a visible shadow of someone who walks by that doorway. (00:19:00)

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.
