Friends

Show generally

Deliberate mistake: The show is set in New York. Joey was a cast member on Days of Our Lives, which is filmed in Los Angeles, but is still always around.

The One Where Chandler Doesn't Like Dogs - S7-E8

Deliberate mistake: Monica sees the dog on her settee from Ross's apartment, which wouldn't be possible from the angle as Ross's place is lower than Monica's. (00:04:50)

The One With Ross' New Girlfriend - S2-E1

Deliberate mistake: The door to Monica's bedroom is open in many shots, such as when Ross introduces Julie, and we can see that there's a wall (with a framed picture) directly opposite the doorway, but when Phoebe's giving Monica the haircut they're in Monica's bedroom and there's no such wall in front of the door.

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene when Phoebe breaks into the other Phoebe's house and gets caught, the older Phoebe was telling the younger one that the man in the photo is not Frank Buffay, but is Chuck Mangioni. Right after that, as Phoebe 2 walks towards the camera, you can see that the door behind her moves open, and there is a visible shadow of someone who walks by that doorway. (00:19:00)

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.
