The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding. (00:05:15)

The One With The Prom Video - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: The prom video has just ended and the TV screen goes blank. Monica had been sitting next to Rachel, but in the reflection of the TV screen you can see her beginning to stand up. We cut back to a 'real' view, and she's sitting down; then she stands up again. (00:20:25)

The One With Barry & Mindy's Wedding - S2-E24

Continuity mistake: When Chandler is sitting in his kitchen with Monica and Phoebe, talking to the woman on his computer, the camera is on Monica, showing part of the computer screen. The screen is blank, indicating that the computer is off. In the next shot, the sound of an instant message is heard, indicating that the computer is in fact on. (00:13:10)

The One With Ross' New Girlfriend - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Rachel falls and starts bleeding, you can see that the wound is somewhere up above her forehead because the blood is running from the wound up there. However, throughout the rest of the episode she has a bandaid going horizontally across her forehead, nowhere near where the apparent wound was. (00:01:20)

The One With the List - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: Ross, Joey and Chandler are in Chandler and Joey's appartment talking about Ross' decision. Chandler has a green bottle in his hand. He puts it down behind the computer by the microwave, but when Ross starts listing Rachel's "cons" the bottle's suddenly at the opposite end of the counter. (00:07:40 - 00:08:25)

The One With Ross' New Girlfriend - S2-E1

Continuity mistake: When Paulo comes out of Rachel's bedroom to greet the group, the robe he is wearing is obviously untied and hanging open. After we see how everyone reacted to him being there, we again see Paulo but now the robe is securely tied even though neither he nor Rachel changed positions between shots. (00:11:10)

The One With Rachel's Date - S8-E5

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the coffee house, Phoebe is talking to Monica who is drinking a cup of coffee. Towards the end of the scene, the camera is on Phoebe who is smiling & laughing at Monica. In the right hand corner is a side view of 'Monica' however, it is not Courtney Cox in the scene, but a completely different actress. [Widescreen version only, although the "wrong" nose is visible in the original]. (00:06:20)
