Continuity mistake: When the bullies are about to fight with Chandler and Ross, they decide to put all watches and keys into a hat. He takes the hat off and places it down and everyone puts the watches and keys in. The shot changes to a further out view and the bully has a different hat on his head while another hat is still placed where he put it. When there is a closer view of him, there is once again no hat on his head. (00:19:30)
Continuity mistake: In The One In Massapequa, Jack Gellar is eating food off a stick. When he finishes he holds the stick while Rachel asks Jack if he has any pearls of wisdom. We can see the stick over Judy's shoulder. In the next shot the stick is gone from his hand, then we see Judy put it down on a table, then it reappears in his hand, before disappearing for good.

Factual error: Phoebe discovers that one of the babies has wandered away, and finds the baby inside the open drawer. Yeah, no. These babies aren't even walking yet, much less are they able to lift themselves up past the height of their own bodies and launch themselves into a drawer.
Character mistake: After the guys have beaten the girls in the quiz, Rachel refuses to move apartments and Monica says: "If we had lost, we would have made them get rid of the birds." But they did lose. That's why the guys have got their apartment. She should have said if we had won.lpbigmore
Plot hole: In the beginning the Friends enter Central Perk and see that there are some other people on their couch. Monica looks fine and happy - even though later in the episode the other Friends say that she's been depressed for some days now, and she doesn't leave her apartment.
Character mistake: In one of the scenes where Phoebe is teaching Joey guitar, she asks him to demonstrate the "Iceberg" chord. To refresh his memory, Joey refers to the chord as "G Sharp." In reality, the only way to play a G Sharp chord is with a barre chord, and as such the fingering is not exclusive to it.Daniel Knight
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
Continuity mistake: When Rachel tells Ross that she "kind of lost" Marcel it cuts to an exterior shot from the balcony, and if we look past Rachel and Ross we see there's a table against the wall, under the Maïna La Voyante poster, but that table does not exist in previous or following shots.
