The One with Mrs. Bing - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: While everyone's at the restaurant Rachel dips a tortilla chip into guacamole and gets some on her hand. When Paolo takes a bite from the chip he also eats the guacamole off Rachel's hand while she's still holding the rest of the tortilla chip, but in the next closeup Rachel's hand is empty, then in the next shot the remaining tortilla chip reappears in Rachel's hand. (00:06:45)

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Apparently Ross is Monica's older brother but in "The one where they're going to party", Joey states that the three men are all the same age ("we're 29, we're not women"), and in The One with the Birth Monica says she is 26 and Joey says he is 25. If Joey is younger than Monica, and Ross and Joey are the same age, then there's definitely a mistake somewhere.

The One Where Ross Moves In - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: Rachel tells her neighbor Danny that she doesn't know anything about sailing, but later in the series, Rachel teaches Joey how to sail after he wins a boat at a silent auction. She says she learned sailing from her father while growing up.

The One After Joey And Rachel Kiss - S10-E1

Continuity mistake: Chandler, Monica and Phoebe are shown listening at the wall between their room and the room Ross is in with Charlie. However, when Ross comes into the room, the outside hallway is shown, and it is clear that the wall they were listening at actually connects to the hallway, not another room. Ross even walks in that direction when he leaves, proving it's not a dead end or similar. (00:05:30)

The One With The Dirty Girl - S4-E6

Question: When Joey asks why he can't give Kathy the pen, Chandler says, "Because she's not eleven. And it's not the seventh night of Chanukah." What is Chandler talking about when he says, "It's not the seventh night of Chanukah?"

Answer: Usually by the seventh night of Hanukkah you don't know what to get the other person, and you will probably resort to getting the other person something insignificant. Chandler is basically saying that the pen is a stupid gift.

Answer: Chanukah is a Jewish celebration that occurs around the same time as the Christian Christmas. The celebration lasts for eight days and it is customary to give a small gift on each of the eight days. There is no special gift required and the line about it being "the seventh night" of Chanukah is just Chandler's sarcasm.
