The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

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.

Visible crew/equipment: After Chandler tells Monica the results of the fertility tests, when it cuts to Phoebe as the receptionist says good morning to her, the camera can be seen at the left side of the screen.

The One With Phoebe's Birthday Dinner - S9-E5

Factual error: The restaurant refuses to take anyone's orders until they're all seated, which means that the group is sitting, occupying a table, without earning any revenue for the restaurant. There isn't a restaurant in NYC that would have such a policy, since it basically guarantees that a table becomes a revenue vacuum. (It also makes for very unhappy customers, but that doesn't qualify it as a factual error, since some restaurants might be actually stupid enough to not care about their return customers).

The One With Christmas in Tulsa - S9-E10

Continuity mistake: When the group notice that it's snowing outside, external shots show a lot more snow than the internal shots. (00:19:20)

The One In Barbados, part 1 - S9-E23

Plot hole: This is actually for both parts of "The One in Barbados": it's shown that Monica's hair gets all frizzy from the humidity. And yet she's shown all throughout with her hair out and loose in all its frizzy glory, though it bugs her. I could maybe buy that not one of the women have hair gel with her (not bloody likely.) or that the fancy hotel doesn't sell hair gel (possible). But resourceful Monica would have thought of something to calm down her hair, or she would have just tied it up in a ponytail or bun - she does care a lot about her appearance. It makes no sense other than for comic value. (00:09:30)

The One With The Blind Dates - S9-E14

Visible crew/equipment: When Phoebe meets Joey to tell him about the date for Rach, the stage lights are seen outside the coffee-shop. (00:05:35)

The One Where No One Proposes - S9-E1

Revealing mistake: When Rachel is breastfeeding Emma for the first time, the baby's head is constantly moving in the same repetitive pattern suggesting it is one of those life-like dolls. Babies do not move their heads like that. (00:08:20)

The One With The Blind Dates - S9-E14

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is at her blind date, and Steve tells her that he's selling T-Shirts now, Rachel's arms are on the table, but then the camera cuts to her, and she has her arms crossed. (00:12:00)

The One Where Emma Cries - S9-E2

Continuity mistake: When Joey is seen apologising in front of the hospital room door, we can see a pink wall only about 2 metres behind him. However, in every scene before that which features the door, we can see it leads out to a large open area.

The One With the Pediatrician - S9-E3

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Phoebe asks Mike to prove that he plays piano, his arm goes from resting on the couch to on his lap from one shot to the next. After Phoebe tells him "You are really good," his left arm is resting on the couch. But in the next shot when Phoebe continues talking, his arm is resting on his lap.

The One With Ross's Inappropriate Song - S9-E7

Other mistake: When Chandler finds out that the video marked 'Monica' is just a football game he says, 'This may be the first time I have enjoyed football.' Although in 'TOW The Football' (season 3) he is quite happily watching the Thanksgiving Day game with Ross and Joey.

Suggested correction: Chandler has been shown in later episodes to simply watch the Thanksgiving Day game to avoid having to help out. It's likely that he actually wasn't enjoying the game but was just watching it to avoid helping.

The One With The Lottery - S9-E18

Continuity mistake: After he gets the job Chandler sits on the couch pretending to read a magazine and Joey drops a piece of paper that materialises in his right hand in between shots. (00:19:40)

The One Where Monica Sings - S9-E13

Visible crew/equipment: After Joey dips his finger into the hot wax and smears it all over his hands, when Sonya walks out of the back room we can see her tape mark on the floor, which she promptly steps on.

The One With Christmas in Tulsa - S9-E10

Audio problem: In the scene before the opening credits, if you listen carefully to Chandler's line, "If I don't get it done, I'll be fired", you can tell it's an overdub. The background noise and volume levels are different than the rest of his speaking.

The One With the Pediatrician - S9-E3

The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Visible crew/equipment: Right before Ross' speech begins, as the camera pans down, if you look at the top of the screen, you would be able to see the top of the set and a set light. (00:31:20)

The One With Rachel's Other Sister - S9-E8

Character mistake: While watching the parade near the beginning, Chandler gets excited because there's a band from Muskogee, OK, which is supposedly only four hours from Tulsa, where he works. It's actually less than an hour away from Tulsa.

The One With The Memorial Service - S9-E17

Continuity mistake: After Phoebe kisses Mike in her apartment, Mikes friend rushes in and discovers them. As soon as the shot widens, Mike's hand moves from being behind Phoebes head to his lap. (00:17:35)

The One With The 'Cuffs - S4-E3

Joanna: What are you doing?
Chandler: I'm getting dressed.
Joanna: Why?
Chandler: Because when I go outside naked, people throw garbage at me.

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.
