Continuity mistake: When Chandler is looking over Ross' list (right before he calls him Magellan), he has the front sheet of the paper folded up. In the next shot, the sheet is folded down.

The One With All The Candy - S7-E9

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Monica's female neighbour comes begging for candy, after Monica gives it to her then goes to shut the door, it's a man standing at the door, not the woman.

The One With All The Candy - S7-E9

The One Where Chandler Doesn't Like Dogs - S7-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When Chandler sees the empty dog basket on the floor at Ross' there is a panning shot to the door. If you look carefully, you can see a crewmember wearing blue jeans and white shoes. (00:17:25)

The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Continuity mistake: When Jack and Judy leave Joey's apartment, there is a birthday banner on the counter that has fallen off. When Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe are racing the toys to see who gets to go, the banner is back on. In this time no-one has fixed the banner as there is not enough time for them to do so off camera and the people on camera don't fix it. It's most clear that it's back on when Monica is saying, "Technically, our dog never crossed the finish line". (00:14:05 - 00:17:05)

The One with the Monkey - S1-E10

Visible crew/equipment: After Max tells Phoebe that he and David got the grant and are leaving for Minsk on January 1st, when Phoebe goes to see David, just as she knocks on the door a boom mic can be seen moving at the top of the screen, before it cuts to David's closeup. (00:12:15)

The One with the Monkey - S1-E10

Continuity mistake: Just before the opening credits, when Ross says, "That's 'pathet', which is Sanskrit for 'really cool way to live', " Marcel is sitting on Ross's left shoulder in the closeup, but in the next shot the monkey is suddenly sitting on his right shoulder, right before Ross walks off screen. (00:01:00)

The One With Rachel's Assistant - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: Ross has always said that Carol was his first (and only, until Julie) sexual partner, but in the episode where they tell each others secrets Chandler says Ross slept with the cleaner when they were at college. Some people say that Ross had kept it a secret, and that's why it had never come out before, but considering that he categorically states several times over series one and two how he'd only EVER been with Carol, getting quite upset at times, that explanation just doesn't ring true.

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Other mistake: When Phoebe breaks into the other Phoebe's house, after she mentions that the man on the picture is "Chuck Mangionne" the door behind her opens by itself. (00:19:40)

The One With All The Cheesecakes - S7-E11

Continuity mistake: When Rachel and Chandler are out in the hall eating cheesecake off the floor, Chandler's piece is much closer to Rachel's piece than in the previous scene when Rachel slapped it out of Chandler's hand closer to the apartment doorway.

The One With Joey's New Girlfriend - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When Ross goes to Amanda's house for a date you see her two children sitting on the couch. The little boy with blonde hair is sitting down, when it cuts to Ross and Amanda talking the boy is standing up on the couch, the next shot he's sat down as Amanda walks out the door.

The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Other mistake: In TOW Phoebe's Cookies (7-3) Jack Geller explains to Chandler that his in-laws think he is a lawyer, and if Chandler ever meets them to "play along." In this episode Judy Geller says that her parents died very young.

The One With The Apothecary Table - S6-E11

Audio problem: When Phoebe puts her feet up on Ross' apothecary table, Ross asks her not to put her feet up on his "new...old sheet." During the pause right after he says "new," there's a cut to a different angle and you can see his mouth form the words "old sheet." Then it cuts to a different angle and we actually see and hear Ross say "old sheet." (00:12:05)

The One After 'I do' - S8-E1

Other mistake: In "TOW the cheap wedding dress" the whole episode is about how Chandler wants "The Swing Kings" to play at the wedding, because, at their concert, that is where he realised that Monica was the woman he wanted to dance all his dances with, and Monica goes to great lengths to secure the band. In this episode, the band at the wedding is actually called "Jungle Swing".

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 2 - S4-E24

Audio problem: When the wedding officiant says "take thee, Ross" his lips don't move. (00:20:35)

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: The part in Chandler's hair switches from left to right throughout the episode.

The One Where Ross Got High - S6-E9

Plot hole: Monica is trusting Rachel to make a traditional English trifle and being a top chef (or an even averagely intelligent human being) she would know what ingredients are used in one. So there's no way she could have missed Rachel cooking beef with peas and onions during the cooking process. Rachel's cooking it right there in Monica's kitchen while everyone else is there!

The One With Rachel's Going Away Party - S10-E16

Revealing mistake: The twins are dolls. They don't move, and the way they are being carried indicates they don't weigh much.

The One With Phoebe's Dad - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When Ross gives the super the money and asks "will this help with the knob" the super says that the place isn't open until Tuesday. When he says that the money is in his right hand. Then when he asks "am I not saying it right", the money in his right hand is gone.

The One With The 'Cuffs - S4-E3

Joanna: What are you doing?
Chandler: I'm getting dressed.
