Friends

The One with the Blackout - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Rachel takes the cat to apartment number 8 and Mr. Heckles opens the door. However, in this episode, the girls' apartment is labeled number 5 which means that number 8 is above them. In later episodes, Mr. Heckles always says that the noisy girls upstairs are keeping him from doing things. [It makes a bit more sense later on in the series when Monica and Rachel's appartment changes to number 20, which is when Mr Heckles starts to complain about the noise (although in the flash back episode when Phoebe is still living with Monica it seems apparent that they actually know Mr Heckles, which Phoebe shows no sign of when she and Rachel are looking for the owner of the cat).] (00:13:40)

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 Jellyfish - S4-E1

Question: When Ross and Rachel are fighting, Chandler hides behind the door and bursts out saying "I knew it." When Rachel says, "It's not that common, it doesn't happen to every guy and it is a big deal.", is this just a Chandler moment or is there another joke I have missed?

Answer: The statements that she's contradicting (that it is common, it happens to every guy, and it's not a big deal), are the things that a woman commonly says to a man who is suffering from erectile difficulty, typically to assuage his bruised ego. However, most men do not believe that these statements are true, as evidenced by Chandler's outburst. He's so caught up in the proof that women are lying about it that he gives himself away.
