Show generally

Other mistake: In his apartment from later episodes, Ross' kitchen door is on the same wall as the front door, and it is a long and narrow kitchen, but Ross' apartment is between two others. The floor plan doesn't make sense unless the kitchen is only a foot wide, otherwise it would jut off into the hallway.

The One With Mac & C.H.E.E.S.E. - S6-E20

Plot hole: When Chandler is in Joey's apartment, he answers the phone and says, "Joey's not here right now, can I take a message?" A split-second later, we hear Chandler say, "Yeah, so the audition's been moved from 5:00 to 2:30?" It would be 100% impossible, within the fraction of a second that Chandler is silent, for the other party to pass along the fact that Joey's audition has been moved and the new start time. In fact, there wouldn't have been time to speak more than a couple of syllables. (00:08:45)

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: At Rachel's birthday party, Phoebe reaches into the shoebox of rats, but straight away in the next shot, her hands are on the lid. (00:14:10)

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: As Rachel says "the guy hates me", in a wide shot Monica turns to her with her arms by her sides to say "does he?". It then cuts to a shot more focused on Monica where she laughs, and she's now reaching forwards to the table. (00:13:10)

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: In the series nine episode with the 'hot' nanny, at the end when Rachel is on the veranda/balcony thing with Gavin, before he says 'I do have feelings for you', the shot is over the shoulder and he has his hand on the wall of the balcony, when the shot switches to the front angle his hand is by his side. (00:20:55)

The One With The Birth Mother - S10-E9

Audio problem: When Monica and Chandler are talking about telling Erica, when Monica says "Technicality!" It doesn't match with her lips. (00:15:30)

The One Where Ross Got High - S6-E9

Factual error: A really picky one: When Ross looks at the recipe book, he says Rachel's made 'half a Shepherd's Pie'. Technically, a Shepherd's Pie is made with lamb, whilst it's a Cottage Pie that's made with beef (although the two names are often interchanged).

The One With All The Haste - S4-E19

Factual error: The guys are gone for a single night, watching the Knicks game. (You can tell this because they talk about how "we can go see the game tonight," and when they get back everyone's wearing the same clothes as that conversation.) When they get back, both apartments are completely switched back: the large, heavy furniture is replaced, the posters are re-hung, etc. Even if they were gone from, say, 6 p.m. to midnight or so, there is no way that Rachel and Monica would be able to make that transition in that kind of time.

The One Where No One Proposes - S9-E1

Visible crew/equipment: At the beginning when they're looking at Emma between shots you can see a Cameraman or Camera in the Window.

The One With Joey's Bag - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe realises she just met her dad she turns to her friends to share the news, and in the closeup she's holding a pair of 3D glasses in her right hand and Monica's holding a pair in her left hand, but in the next wideshot both of those glasses have vanished. (00:09:15)

The One With Joey's Bag - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: Before Monica starts giving Chandler his massage, she sets the timer and places it near the foot of the bed which we see in Chandler's closeup, but in the next shot when she says, "Say goodbye to sore muscles," oblivious to Chandler's pain, the timer is lying by the pillows behind her. (00:00:25)

The One Where Everybody Finds Out - S5-E14

Factual error: Phoebe holds up a bag of quarters that is almost the size of her head. This would be physically impossible for anyone except perhaps the world's strongest weight-lifters. Quarters are exceptionally heavy for their size. Two rolls weigh exactly a pound. It would take at least 300-400 rolls worth of quarters to fill up the bag Phoebe is holding, which means she is lifting 150-200+ pounds, primarily with one arm. (00:08:40)

The One With Joey's Fridge - S6-E19

Revealing mistake: In the closing scene where Ross and Elizabeth are dancing on the beach, you can see that the sky in the background is actually a picture, and you can see where it ends. (00:21:20)

The One With The Routine - S6-E10

Visible crew/equipment: As soon as Janine gets up to leave the coffee house, a bright stage light with a camera and camera man right below it can be seen. (00:04:00)

Randy Brouder

The One With Ross's Inappropriate Song - S9-E7

Other mistake: When Joey and Chandler are watching Richard's sex tape the screen is off right before Monica comes in, and yet she sees the video playing (you can still hear sex noises with the screen off). (00:14:40)

The One With The Red Sweater - S8-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Joey walks into Monica's apartment and Monica screams "I don't know how any of these got open" while throwing a box, a lot of stage lights and a boom-mic are visible above Joey's head. (00:17:00)

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Visible crew/equipment: When Rachel is telling Monica, Chandler and Phoebe how Ross abandoned her at the airport, when she walks towards the TV a boom mic is briefly visible at the top left of the screen.

The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Chandler is seducing Jade in Central Perk, he turns to face Ross after handing her the tissues. The camera then cuts to another angle where he is still facing Jade, and then he turns again to face Ross. (00:06:40)

The One with the Sonogram at the End - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: Toward the end of the episode, the exterior shot of Central Perk shows about 8-10 people inside the cafe, at the coffee bar, at the tables. But the next interior shot shows the cafe is empty except for our six Friends, lounging in the closed cafe while Rachel cleans up.

The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Character mistake: When Mike and Monica are playing ping pong, Mike's service was a fault as he released and hit the ball over the top of the table rather than behind. He then (on the same point) claims to win the point because Monica placed her hand on the table. (00:33:00)
