The One With Rachel's Book - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: When helmet-wearing Vicar Joey taunts Rachel one too many times she turns the tables on him, so when Joey backs away from Rachel he gets pushed up against the front door, and although he can't move, in the shot facing Joey he's at the left side of the door, but in the side shots he's at the right side of the door.

The One With Chandler's Work Laugh - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: During Ross and Janice's conversation in Central Perk, when Ross comments, "You're ending this with me because I'm too whiny?" both his and Janice's left arms are up, but it cuts to the next shot and it's their right arms which are up, then it happens again when Ross says, "I've become so whiny that I annoy you?! Janice!" they both have their right arms up, but next shot it's their left arms up.

The One Where Joey Tells Rachel - S8-E16

Continuity mistake: At the end of the previous episode, Joey tells Ross that he has feelings for Rachel just as Ross is about to walk out of Central Perk, and there's a vase of tulips on the table beside the door and two things hanging on the coat hooks. The opening scene of this episode continues at the same moment of Joey's admission, and the vase has vanished and there's only a sweater hanging on the coat hooks.

The One Where Ross Moves In - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: When Chandler and Joey walk into the apartment to find boxes all over the place and also when Chandler talks about the air purifier, the door to the bathroom is open and the toilet is right beside the tub (odd that it's there in the first place), but when Joey tells Chandler he wants to play foosball and also when Joey's wearing the helmet, the prop toilet has vanished.
