Continuity mistake: When Joey goes to Monica and Chandler's apartment, he goes to the fridge to get something to drink to keep his bladder full for the audition. When he closes the fridge he has two bottles in his left hand. The camera cuts to Monica, then cuts back to Joey. He then has two cans in his left hand and is holding them differently. (00:14:55)
Revealing mistake: While Monica and Rachel are talking about Chandler's "jollies to Jaws" Rachel's wearing a colorful flowery top, and after Joey walks in just as Monica takes her seat at the table in the closeup, it's Jennifer Aniston's stand-in, wearing a blue top, who is seated beside Monica. Rachel's hair is wavy in the flowered top, but straight in the blue top (viewed in widescreen). (00:12:22)
Continuity mistake: In the coffee house, when Ross and Joey are having a fight about Joey's proposal to Rachel, Ross does the "quote gesture" with his hands and Joey says he doesn't know what this means. In TOW the Secret Closet, Joey used it himself when talking to Chandler, in the scene where he asks him to bring a bobby pin to pick the closet's lock. (00:08:55)
Revealing mistake: When Phoebe and Mike walk into Central Perk and announce they're moving in together, Chandler, Monica, and Ross, who's wearing a sweatshirt and khakis, are all sitting on the couch, and after Phoebe's comment about loading up the Volvo and wanting to be a soccer mom, it's David Schwimmer's stand-in, wearing a blue button-down shirt and jeans, who is seated beside Chandler.
Visible crew/equipment: During Monica and Mike's game, after Mike makes the comment that Monica should look in the mirror before calling herself a girl, in the following wideshot after the closeups the camera/equipment can be seen at the right side of the screen.
Visible crew/equipment: While Chandler and Joey are watching Richard's videotape, when Chandler's relieved it's just football he heads off to get beer, and in the next shot as he hears the sound of moaning we can see the opening in the wall behind the TV.
Revealing mistake: When Rachel tells Joey that his agent called and he got the audition for the Broadway play, Rachel's wearing a colorful paisley top, and after Monica says, "Maybe the monkey will be at the audition," in the next shot it's Jennifer Aniston's stand-in, wearing a red plaid blouse, who is standing beside Joey. (Widescreen). (00:03:08)
Other mistake: The layout of the hotel surrounding the main cast's rooms as displayed during the sequence where Monica, Chandler, and Phoebe eavesdrop on Ross, Charlie, Rachael, and Joey is physically impossible. Ross enters the room Monica, Chandler, and Phoebe are in through the same wall they are using to listen in on Charlie and him, though while the camera is in Ross and Charlie's room, no door can be seen in that wall. Furthermore, a hallway can be seen through the doorway while Ross holds the door open, implying that the two rooms do not share a wall in the first place.
Continuity mistake: When Rachel takes her gift certificate to the massage parlour to claim her free massage, she hands it to the receptionist and we can see that it has been torn up into eight pieces and taped back together. Yet when Phoebe tears up the gift certificate in a previous scene, we see her tear it into only four pieces before handing it back to Rachel. (00:05:00 - 00:08:20)
