The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: In the one with Phoebe's rat babies, it is very obvious that the box has nothing in it. Also when she is in her apartment explaining about giving up the triplets she had for her brother she puts the box down on the table, yet when it cuts to Mike's face and Phoebe's realisation that she hadn't told him that before, the box is back on her lap.

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: When Monica goes to Rachel's office and invites Gavin to Rachel's birthday party Rachel gets up and goes to the door exclaiming "why did you invite him, I hate that guy." She has nothing in her hand when she gets up from her desk; but at the very end of the scene when she tells Monica to be quiet, she's got a pen in her hand for one shot. (00:12:45)

The One With Phoebe's Rats - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: As Rachel says "the guy hates me", in a wide shot Monica turns to her with her arms by her sides to say "does he?". It then cuts to a shot more focused on Monica where she laughs, and she's now reaching forwards to the table. (00:13:10)

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.
