The One With Monica's Thunder - S7-E1

Audio problem: When Joey walks out of the bedroom dressed as a 19 year old, when Chandler says the line "Yes, on a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being the dumbest a person can look, you are definitely 19", you can see that the audio doesn't match the words. It looks as though Matthew Perry says "not 19" and they had to re-dub over post production with "19." Subtle, but it's there. (00:08:50)

The One With Ross's Library Book - S7-E7

Audio problem: When Janice is groaning about Clarke sanding her up, the second "Oh" is obviously pre-recorded and the third "Ah I j..." is audio from the next closeup shot that hasn't been cut to yet. On top of this, her mouth moves on neither of them. (00:12:15)

The One With Rachel's Book - S7-E2

Audio problem: Chandler, Monica and her parents are at dinner to discuss the upcoming wedding. When they describe how they remodeled the kitchen when she broke up with Richard, the camera pans to Monica and her mouth is moving but there's no sound. It then switches camera angles and Monica audibly asks, "Well what about when I started dating Chandler?" Which is what she said in the frame before with no sound. (00:11:00)

Friends mistake picture

The One With Rachel's Date - S8-E5

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the coffee house, Phoebe is talking to Monica who is drinking a cup of coffee. Towards the end of the scene, the camera is on Phoebe who is smiling & laughing at Monica. 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.
