The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: In the one with Phoebe's rat babies, it is very obvious that the box has nothing in it. Also when she is in her apartment explaining about giving up the triplets she had for her brother she puts the box down on the table, yet when it cuts to Mike's face and Phoebe's realisation that she hadn't told him that before, the box is back on her lap.

The One With The Rumor - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: The gang confronts Ross over his affair with a fifty-year old librarian when he was younger. If you watch the mirror behind him (in one of the girls' rooms), it changes angles every time the camera cuts between Ross and the rest of the gang. (00:17:40)

The One With Unagi - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: Just before Chandler gives Monica the mixed tape, he tries to manipulate a coat hanger into something feasible. He stretches it out and holds it up, saying "Yes, honey, I made it myself," then the camera cuts to another angle as he throws it down. After the cut the hanger is not as stretched as it was before.

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: In Central Perk, when Phoebe writes a note for Ross to put on his sandwich so no one eats it, she mentions that she stabbed a cop, and has a green mug in her hand. It cuts to Monica then back to Phoebe and the mug is out of her hand and she's yelling, "He stabbed me first." When it cuts back to the wide shot the mug is back in Phoebe's hand. (00:05:40)

The One With All The Candy - S7-E9

Continuity mistake: When Ross is trying to convince Phoebe to try to learn to ride her bike again, the bike is completely covered by a large white sheet in the corner of Phoebe's room; however, in a later shot, the wheel of the bike is visible. (00:13:15)

Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.

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.
