The One Where They're Up All Night - S7-E12

Revealing mistake: Just after Ross realises that he and Joey are locked out on the roof, he goes over to the door and tries the handle with some force. That whole part of the set moves - door and walls. (00:03:25)

Continuity mistake: There is a long shot of Rachel and another person sitting on the sofa and Rachel's wine glass is almost empty. She then goes over to the the counter to fill it up. However, before she starts to fill it, a significant quantity of wine can be seen in the glass. (00:07:35)

Factual error: In the opening scene, Ross remarks on the stars the group is gazing at. In reality, there would be far too much light pollution in this part of New York City to be able to see any celestial bodies such as comets or stars.

The One Where They're Up All Night - S7-E12

Plot hole: It is made clear through dialogue in the episode that Joey and Ross are stuck on the roof because Joey removed the bit of piping holding the door open. However, when Tag, Rachel and Phoebe get up to leave, Phoebe says "Shh, get me out of here" and there is a clear shot of the door standing wide open. Afterward, it is possible to see Tag reaching for the door handle to close it behind him. This is inconsistent with the idea that the door needs to be held open. (00:02:20)

The One Where They're Up All Night - S7-E12

Revealing mistake: When Chandler is getting a pan out to warm some milk, he successfully pulls the bottom pan out without too much disruption, however, the joke (and entire plot device - to wake Monica up) is to make as much noise as possible so Perry pulls out more pans on purpose and knocks them on the floor. This is quite clear - you can see him grasp the wok and pull it out onto the floor. (00:06:30)

Visible crew/equipment: Right after Tag wonders if he can see his apartment from there, when Ross says "wow, look at all the stars" a boom-mic is visible for a short amount of time.

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Monica: What happened to your teeth?
Ross: I whitened them.
Chandler: Really?
Ross: Yeah, what... What do you think?
Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
Ross: Come on, seriously.
Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
Monica: How much longer?
Ross: Uh, uh... A day.
Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?
Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
Monica: She will be after tonight.

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.
