Other mistake: Mid episode when Monica turns off the cordless phone after being told by Wendy that she can not make it, the phone makes the "out of range" audio tone instead of the "power off" audio tone. Occurs directly as Monica says, "Wendy, we had a deal, yeah, you promised. Wendy, Wendy, Wendy.".Wes
Continuity mistake: In the scene where the gang is watching Joey's "substitution" video, you can easily see the reflection on the television that no one is sitting on the couch, but when the camera goes back to the gang, they're sitting down on the couch. (00:19:30)
Continuity mistake: When Paul the Wine Guy first comes to Monica's apartment, Phoebe is standing in the kitchen telling Rachel that she just pulled out four eyelashes. But in the very next shot, you can see her sitting in an armchair in the living room. [Broadcast version only - in the extended DVD version there's a shot showing Phoebe walking to the chair.]
Continuity mistake: When Phoebe and Rachel are first talking about the apothecary table, there are two piles of CDs on it. In the side shot you can see that the two CDs on the top of the pile in front of Rachel are overhanging by a few centimetres. A few shots later, however, the top two CDs are overhanging on a different side. (00:06:05)
Continuity mistake: When Phoebe and Ross are talking about Ross buying his sheets at the flea market, Phoebe says, "Ross, come on, you gotta loosen the purse strings a little" with her hands by her side. The camera cuts and her hands are now out in front of her.wHw
Factual error: The monkey is allowed outside his cage at an airport gate. Animals, with the exception of assistance dogs, cannot be transported in the cabin with passengers, and this rule applied in the 1990s as well. There is no way a monkey would be brought through a security checkpoint into a terminal concourse of a NYC airport and allowed aboard a regular commercial airliner.
