The One With The Stain - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: When Monica asks Brenda to clean the top of the cabinets so that she can get a look at her crotch, Brenda drags a chair over (with both hands) to stand on. In the next shot, she is magically holding a feather duster. (00:11:40)

The One In Massapequa - S8-E18

Audio problem: When Monica is preparing her speech, she stands up to show Chandler her note card, but when you can hear her say "Hey, check this out," her lips don't move. (00:02:20)

The One With The Halloween Party - S8-E6

Factual error: This show is set in October (it's a Halloween party). Rachel's stomach is completely flat, but according to the show, she got pregnant in April (It's stated several times by the characters on the show that Monica and Chandler's wedding was in May, and we learn in "The One With The Red Sweater" that she got pregnant a month before the wedding. Hence, April). However, by October she should have a six months' pregnant belly, which is no way resembles the perfectly flat belly she shows.

The One With The Red Sweater - S8-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Joey walks into Monica's apartment and Monica screams "I don't know how any of these got open" while throwing a box, a lot of stage lights and a boom-mic are visible above Joey's head. (00:17:00)

The One Where Rachel Has a Baby, part 1 - S8-E23

Visible crew/equipment: Right after Rachel says, "Do you know that feeling when you're trying to blow a Saint Bernard out your ass?" the camera cuts to a view of Monica and Chandler. Behind Monica and Chandler, part of the set is visible, along with a man on crutches.

The One Where Joey Dates Rachel - S8-E12

Factual error: When Chandler is explaining that he played Ms. Pac Man all day, the Ms. Pac Man machine is unplugged, and then plugged back in. Immediately upon being plugged back in, we hear the Ms. Pac Man theme song being played. No version of a Ms. Pac Man stand-up arcade ever played the theme song upon powering on. Instead, it would silently go into "demo mode." The only way the stand-up arcade version of Ms. Pac Man would ever play its theme song was after two events occurred in order: 1. A coin was dropped in the slot (or a button was pressed on the inside of the unlocked coin drawer), and then 2. Someone pressed the '1 player' or '2 players' button to start the game. It is clear that neither of these things has happened in the scene by the time the music starts playing. (00:11:50)

The One With Ross' Step Forward - S8-E11

Other mistake: In the opening scene when Rachel says "I went from store to store sitting on Santa laps" the camera is out of focus.

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

Continuity mistake: In a deleted scene, the security guard opens Monica's case. There is a blue item on top, when the camera changes, this item has disappeared.

The One With The Stripper - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: In this scene in Central Perk, Monica tells Chandler she has hired a stripper for him as she feels bad for not letting him have a bachelor party, and tells him to think of it as a 2 month anniversary present. However this episode is set 2 episodes after the Halloween episode, therefore allowing us to assume it is set sometime in November or later. Chandler and Monica got married in May, as stated several times in the show by the cast, therefore they have been married for around 6 months or more, not 2 months. (00:07:00)

The One With Joey's Interview - S8-E19

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, Joey is holding the Soap Opera Digest magazine. In one shot it is open but folded, then in another it is open all the way, then it's folded again, then it's open again, then it's closed, and then it's folded again. The change is never shown.

The One With Rachel's Date - S8-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Rachel and Cash leave Joey's apartment, in the top-left corner a stage light is visible. (00:12:05)

The One After 'I do' - S8-E1

Other mistake: In "TOW the cheap wedding dress" the whole episode is about how Chandler wants "The Swing Kings" to play at the wedding, because, at their concert, that is where he realised that Monica was the woman he wanted to dance all his dances with, and Monica goes to great lengths to secure the band. In this episode, the band at the wedding is actually called "Jungle Swing".

The One With The Cooking Class - S8-E21

Revealing mistake: Just as the scene cuts from the streets to the baby store, the camera wobbles slightly.

The One With The Birthing Video - S8-E15

Continuity mistake: When Chandler tells Rachel and Monica to look at the screen when the baby has come out, his arm goes from pointing at the TV to on his lap.

Joe Mc

The One Where Joey Dates Rachel - S8-E12

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is playing Ms. Pacman to erase Chandler's high scores, the door of the apartment can be seen open. When she loses and starts swearing, Ross enters the apartment with Ben, opening the door. (00:19:10)

The One With The Secret Closet - S8-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Chandler walk in Joey's apartment and say "Rachel's all moved out, huh?" as he walks towards Joey a lot of set lights are visible above their heads. (00:18:55)

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.

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

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.
