Continuity mistake: After Chandler has been playing the Ms Pacman machine all day he claims his hand has seized up and it appears to look like a claw. From then on in that scene, his hand manages to move around fine. It goes in his pocket, and he waves it around like normal, and then when he mentions his hand again at the end of the scene, it appears to have seized and is clawlike again. (00:10:30)

Continuity mistake: When Ross arrives at the classroom late and out of breath, he tosses his jacket at the hook, but it falls to the floor, and he walks behind the desk anyway. In the next wideshot of the class, as Ross still stands behind the desk, the coat is up on the hook. (Viewed on broadcast TV as a rerun, so there may be a missing shot that was removed for extra commercial time.). (00:07:05)

The One Where Joey Dates Rachel - S8-E12

Factual error: When Chandler is explaining that he played Ms. Pac Man all day, the Ms. Pac Man machine is unplugged, and then plugged back in. Immediately upon being plugged back in, we hear the Ms. Pac Man theme song being played. No version of a Ms. Pac Man stand-up arcade ever played the theme song upon powering on. Instead, it would silently go into "demo mode." The only way the stand-up arcade version of Ms. Pac Man would ever play its theme song was after two events occurred in order: 1. A coin was dropped in the slot (or a button was pressed on the inside of the unlocked coin drawer), and then 2. Someone pressed the '1 player' or '2 players' button to start the game. It is clear that neither of these things has happened in the scene by the time the music starts playing. (00:11:50)

The One Where Joey Dates Rachel - S8-E12

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is playing Ms. Pacman to erase Chandler's high scores, the door of the apartment can be seen open. When she loses and starts swearing, Ross enters the apartment with Ben, opening the door. (00:19:10)

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.
