The One With The Rumor - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: After Will has arrived and Chandler says, "I'm watching the game but I'm not deaf," you can see Will in the background with his hands on his hips. When the camera switches to just Will and Monica, Will suddenly has two wine glasses in his hands. (00:06:20)

The One With The Stripper - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: At the end of this episode, before the credits, Monica is giving a striptease for Chandler. Notice how the crown on his head changes position. Look at the coloured circles on this crown. (00:19:10)

The One With The Tea Leaves - S8-E17

Continuity mistake: Throughout the entire first scene where Rachel is asking Chandler and Monica if they have seen Joey and he's in the bathroom, Chandler is sitting at the table and his blue cup constantly switches from being in his hand to on the table much too quickly to be real movement. At one point he even holds a piece of food which then disappears from his hand back on to the plate. (00:00:45)

The One Where Joey Dates Rachel - S8-E12

Continuity mistake: When Ross arrives at the classroom late and out of breath, he tosses his jacket at the hook, but it falls to the floor, and he walks behind the desk anyway. In the next wideshot of the class, as Ross still stands behind the desk, the coat is up on the hook. (Viewed on broadcast TV as a rerun, so there may be a missing shot that was removed for extra commercial time.). (00:07:05)

The One Where Rachel is Late - S8-E22

Plot hole: The times in this episode vary a lot. Monica and Phoebe first bet about Rachel giving birth, then it goes to the scene with Joey and Chandler at the movies. It then returns to Monica and Phoebe the next day with Monica losing the bet. However, a little while later, it goes back a day and shows Joey and Chandler at the movie premiere again. (00:09:00)

The One With Monica's Boots - S8-E10

Continuity mistake: When Joey walks back into the apartment (with his eyes covered) to get the sandwich, he walks by the Fussball-table, and there's nothing on it. When he walks away you see a purse lying on the cooker. Then, when the shot changes to Dina and Rachel, you see the purse lying on the fussball table. (00:10:35)

The One Where Rachel Tells... - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: When Joey finds out condoms are only 97% effective, he has his arms crossed. The camera changes angle and he now has them by his side. (00:14:30)

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Other mistake: In series 8, 'The One with the Videotape,' when they are watching Ross and Rachel on the TV and when Rachel (on the video) is discussing the invitations and how Monica didn't shut up about sending them, Chandler points at the TV and makes a kind-of confused face. A few minutes later, just before he says 'Did you do it on our invitations?' the same shot of him pointing and pulling a face comes up. (00:17:05)

The One Where Rachel Tells... - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: In the scene after Rachel has told Ross, she finishes the magazine and tells him there is no pressure on him, his hand is on his chin, then almost instantly his hand is down. (00:11:20)

Pam-I-am

The One With The Rumor - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: In the episode with Brad Pitt in it, when Ross and Will are standing by the fridge and Rachel comes in, Will's right hand jumps around after he crushes the decoration on the wall. (00:08:40)

The One Where Rachel is Late - S8-E22

Other mistake: Ross wants Rachel to change, but she claims that it is 100° out. Monica and Chandler got married on May 15, the day Rachel was officially pregnant. 9 Months after May would be Febuary. It would be cold out.

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Pam-I-am

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Rachel comes in to have Joey feel her stomach, he gets up from the bed and you can see the boxer shorts he is wearing. You can also see them at the end of the scene, even though he is supposed to be naked. (00:03:00)

Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.

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.
