The One With Rachel's Book - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: When helmet-wearing Vicar Joey taunts Rachel one too many times she turns the tables on him, so when Joey backs away from Rachel he gets pushed up against the front door, and although he can't move, in the shot facing Joey he's at the left side of the door, but in the side shots he's at the right side of the door.

The One With Rachel's Book - S7-E2

Continuity mistake: Chandler and Monica are having dinner with her parents. He asks Jack how he and Judy got engaged. He starts, "Well I'd gotten Judy pregnant..." Then they talk about how Jack told Monica's friends a "scary story" about how Judy got pregnant because her method of birth control, her diaphragm, had malfunctioned (damaged by a dog). In the rest of the show, however, we are continually hearing that the firstborn, Ross, was "a medical marvel" and that they thought Judy was barren. This apparently is the main reason why they love Ross more than Monica.

The One With Rachel's Date - S8-E5

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the coffee house, Phoebe is talking to Monica who is drinking a cup of coffee. Towards the end of the scene, the camera is on Phoebe who is smiling & laughing at Monica. In the right hand corner is a side view of 'Monica' however, it is not Courtney Cox in the scene, but a completely different actress. [Widescreen version only, although the "wrong" nose is visible in the original]. (00:06:20)

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.
