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: After Rachel spins the bottle and it points to Joshua, when she crawls toward him on her hands and knees the bottle is in front of her knees in the shots facing her, but in the shot facing Joshua the bottle is at her side, near her foot.Super Grover
Continuity mistake: While Mama Joey is looking for Chick Jr. and Duck Jr., the things pinned to the bulletin board beside the door have vanished when Monica and Chandler walk in, but after Monica walks out to check on the twins everything's back up on the board like it was before.Super Grover
Deliberate mistake: The door to Monica's bedroom is open in many shots, such as when Ross introduces Julie, and we can see that there's a wall (with a framed picture) directly opposite the doorway, but when Phoebe's giving Monica the haircut they're in Monica's bedroom and there's no such wall in front of the door.Super Grover
Other mistake: After Rachel takes the phone from Ross and hangs up on Julie, when she's sitting at the table there's a bottle of Evian water in front of Monica with part of its brand name covered - the letters "e" and "n" are whited out leaving "via" on the bottle.Super Grover
