Continuity mistake: In the one where Chandler watches the video of a woman giving birth, he takes a video out of the VCR and places it on the table (he's staring at the box and when Monica moves it we hear that a tape's inside). When Monica enters the room, she asks him what he is so upset about and he presses play on the remote control. The tape immediately starts playing, despite no-one moving to put it in the player.
Continuity mistake: When the Snippy Guy is pointing out couples to go on the platforms next, he points to one couple with his left hand, while holding a clipboard in his right hand. In the very next shot he points to the next couple, but this time with his right hand while holding the clipboard in his left.
Continuity mistake: At the beginning, Alice and Frank tell Phoebe that they have been trying to get pregnant. When Alice says, "You know, no one's getting any younger", Frank looks at Alice and laughs. In the next shot however, he is looking at Phoebe and doesn't seem to laugh.
Audio problem: When Rachel asks Barry and Mindy why people keep telling her to 'get well soon' and Barry says his parents told everyone she has syphilis, and in the next shot it shows Rachel trying to take this information in, Barry seems to still be talking, but no sound is coming out of his mouth.
Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the episode, Rachel is back in Ross' apartment, trying to mend the ornament she broke when she was in there earlier. Ross comes in unexpectedly and she tosses the broken pieces into the lightshade, leaving the glue on the side table. In subsequent shots, the glue goes from lying on its side, to standing up, a number of times.
Continuity mistake: When Rachel and Joey are at Joey's apartment throwing wet paper towels at the entertainment unit, Phoebe comes in to ask Rachel to switch back to Monica's apartment. During the scene, Phoebe is standing in front of the entertainment unit, and the wet paper towels' number and positions change between shots.
Continuity mistake: In the episode where Rachel goes to tell Ross she loves him (in England) she leaves her room with a brown sleeveless vest and a cardigan over her shoulders. The cardigan then disappears in all other shots until after Phoebe says "he's in love with the British chippy". Her leather jacket also goes from being in her hands to over her arm.
Factual error: In season 4 generally, Phoebe has the shortest pregnancy ever. She gets pregnant as the boys win the girls' apartment. In the next episode Ross meets Emily, after 6 weeks he gets engaged to Emily and they then choose to get married 4 weeks later. Phoebe would only be 10-12 weeks pregnant by the time they fly to London, not in her third trimester.
Continuity mistake: When Charlie and Benjamin are at the restaurant, Benjamin says "I can't believe you chose this restaurant. You remember that night?" To which Charlie replies "I can't believe they let us back in here." However in "The One with the Fertility Test" Charlie has never been to New York before.
