The One In Barbados, part 1 - S9-E23

Revealing mistake: On a number of occasions in this and the next episode, the beach and the water can be seen in the background, through hotel windows. White foam is visible in a number of places, like the crests of waves, but not only do they not move while the camera is on them, they are always in the same place in subsequent shots, revealing that this is a painted backdrop.

The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Revealing mistake: When Ross is talking to the weird obsessive scientist at the bar, just before the wife comes in, the wall behind the professor moves in shot to allow the cameraman room to swing around in the next shot. (00:40:20)

The One With Rachel's Other Sister - S9-E8

Revealing mistake: When Chandler grabs his bag he accidentally lets the box full of wedding china fall off the stool. Watch closely (play in slow-motion). The box falls on the floor and shattered china falls out. The china was ALREADY broken before it falls on the ground. (00:23:00)

The One Where Emma Cries - S9-E2

Revealing mistake: When Emma starts crying and Rachel picks her up, look at how much the baby is moving when she takes it out of the cot. In the next shot it's suddenly only moving it's head, and very slowly at that. This is because it's a robot - and it's very obvious. (00:06:10)

The One Where No One Proposes - S9-E1

Revealing mistake: When Rachel is breastfeeding Emma for the first time, the baby's head is constantly moving in the same repetitive pattern suggesting it is one of those life-like dolls. Babies do not move their heads like that. (00:08:20)
