Friends

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In the early episodes there is a wooden post in front of the door at Monica's apartment. Remember when Monica and Rachel were looking after Ben and Monica bangs his head - Ross shouts "Monica bang" and runs into it. The post doesn't appear in later series.

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

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.

The One With Ross' New Girlfriend - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Chandler has just got back from seeing Joey's 'bad' tailor, Joey says, "That's how they do pants". Chandler turns to look at him twice. (00:17:30)

The One With The Giant Poking Device - S3-E8

Revealing mistake: When Monica and Rachel are banging their heads on the wood, it is clear that they aren't hitting them hard enough to result in the winces that are apparent. (00:09:00)

The One With The Princess Leia Fantasy - S3-E1

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.

The One With All The Resolutions - S5-E11

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.

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.

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 with the Sonogram at the End - S1-E2

Factual error: The sonogram shows a fetus that's much too far-developed for Carol's pregnancy. That fetus is at least 20 weeks along.

The One With The Fake Party - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: While Joey spins the bottle and it keeps pointing to Emily, in the shots facing Ross the door behind him goes back and forth from being either closed or wide open, depending on the angle of the shot.

The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Visible crew/equipment: After Phoebe gets very annoyed by the leather pants gift, when she stands up and walks to the bathroom the boom mic can be seen at the top of the screen, just as she pulls the crepe streamer down.

The One With The Fake Party - S4-E16

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.

The One with the Butt - S1-E6

Other mistake: When Joey announces that he has a job in the new Al Pacino movie, Ross is holding a bottle of peach Snapple with part of its brand name whited out, so it reads "S pple" on the label.

The One Where Joey Loses His Insurance - S6-E4

Audio problem: After Rachel speaks with an Indian accent and comments on Bombay, it cuts to an exterior shot of Central Perk and inside we can see the top of the set, as well as a lighting rig at the ceiling.

The Last One (1) - S10-E19

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.

The One With The Secret Closet - S8-E14

Other mistake: When Chandler stops by to see how Joey's doing after Rachel has moved out, Joey's holding a gallon jug of Minute Maid orange juice with its brand name partially painted to hide it, so it now reads "Vinut Vaio" on the label.

The One With Ross' New Girlfriend - S2-E1

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.

The One With Ross' New Girlfriend - S2-E1

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.
