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

Factual error: When Ross shows Chandler the book, he claims it is in "the biggest library on campus" at NYU, which would be Bobst library on Washington Square Park South. Later, in Central Perk, when Ross tells Rachel and Joey about the people "making babies" in front of his book, Joey says, "Wait a minute. Fifth floor, against that back wall?" Bobst's fifth floor is conference rooms only; there are no stacks on that floor. Joey might have been confused, but Ross should know better, being a professor and having just visited that location. (00:08:30)

The One With the Holiday Armadillo - S7-E10

Revealing mistake: When Ben sits on the sofa to listen to Ross talk about the festival of lights, you can see Monica move Ben to the other side of the sofa despite there being space for her to sit. This is so they sit in the correct order as she would mask Ben to the cameras.

Max Thompson

The One With Chandler's Dad - S7-E22

Continuity mistake: When Monica receives her gift from his father, the Porsche, it's gray. When Rachel takes the keys from Ross' jacket and gets into the car in this episode, the Porsche is black. (00:04:49)

The One Where They All Turn Thirty - S7-E14

Continuity mistake: In The One Where They All Turn Thirty, it is Rachel's birthday. They show flashbacks of all the other Friends' thirtieth birthdays despite Monica's birthday supposedly being months after Rachel's. Plus, earlier on in the show Joey was 25 when Monica was 26, and since Monica and Rachel were in the same grade Joey should actually be a year younger than them, not a year older.

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)

The One With The Truth About London - S7-E16

Revealing mistake: When Monica gives Phoebe the headache medication (Hexadrin) she, not only doesn't take the lid off - and therefore fails in pretending to put it back on - but also doesn't actually give Phoebe anything. (00:07:30)

The One Where They're Up All Night - S7-E12

Revealing mistake: When Chandler is getting a pan out to warm some milk, he successfully pulls the bottom pan out without too much disruption, however, the joke (and entire plot device - to wake Monica up) is to make as much noise as possible so Perry pulls out more pans on purpose and knocks them on the floor. This is quite clear - you can see him grasp the wok and pull it out onto the floor. (00:06:30)

The One With The Cheap Wedding Dress - S7-E17

Continuity mistake: Chandler's chair appears in this episode again, although it was broken in 7/13 and thrown out. It is not in the room in 7/14-16, but in 7/17 it's there again, then it is gone again in 7/18.

The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding, Part 1 - S7-E23

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Chandler are talking about what his father might wear to the wedding, the door to their bedroom opens itself and then closes itself between shots.

Ciaran Meagher

The One With All The Cheesecakes - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: When Ross and Monica are at the wedding reception talking to the other guests at their table, a lady wearing a red scarf is standing behind them with her back turned. Throughout the scene the red scarf keeps changing position very quickly - in one shot it's slid down one shoulder, then back up in the next and then slid down again. At the end of the scene it's off her back entirely and she has just slung it over her arms. (00:12:15 - 00:13:15)

The One With All The Candy - S7-E9

Visible crew/equipment: After Ross gives Phoebe the bike and she is leaving to ride it for the first time, the stage lights are visible in the rear view mirror.

Continuity mistake: When Chandler is looking over Ross' list (right before he calls him Magellan), he has the front sheet of the paper folded up. In the next shot, the sheet is folded down.

The One With All The Candy - S7-E9

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Monica's female neighbour comes begging for candy, after Monica gives it to her then goes to shut the door, it's a man standing at the door, not the woman.

The One Where Chandler Doesn't Like Dogs - S7-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When Chandler sees the empty dog basket on the floor at Ross' there is a panning shot to the door. If you look carefully, you can see a crewmember wearing blue jeans and white shoes. (00:17:25)

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Monica: What happened to your teeth?
Ross: I whitened them.
Chandler: Really?
Ross: Yeah, what... What do you think?
Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
Ross: Come on, seriously.
Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
Monica: How much longer?
Ross: Uh, uh... A day.
Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?
Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
Monica: She will be after tonight.

More trivia for Friends

The One With The Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Question: When Joey asks why he can't give Kathy the pen, Chandler says, "Because she's not eleven. And it's not the seventh night of Chanukah." What is Chandler talking about when he says, "It's not the seventh night of Chanukah?"

Answer: Usually by the seventh night of Hanukkah you don't know what to get the other person, and you will probably resort to getting the other person something insignificant. Chandler is basically saying that the pen is a stupid gift.

Answer: Chanukah is a Jewish celebration that occurs around the same time as the Christian Christmas. The celebration lasts for eight days and it is customary to give a small gift on each of the eight days. There is no special gift required and the line about it being "the seventh night" of Chanukah is just Chandler's sarcasm.
