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.
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).
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)
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.
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.domwhit23
