The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Chandler picks up the phone, he says "Bob here" and Ross is sitting by the bar on the living room side. When the scene starts again after the credits, Ross is getting a drink out of the refrigerator. (00:01:00)

Pam-I-am

The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant - S2-E5

The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: In the part where Ross is on the phone with Julie he says "Say hi to Julie in New Mexico." When everyone is shouting "Hi Julie" look above their heads and you will see a boom mic dip into the shot. (00:03:10)

The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant - S2-E5

Plot hole: Chandler has always loaned Joey money for various things (rent, acting classes, Christmas gifts, etc), so he shouldn't be surprised to learn that Joey doesn't have money for fancy dinners or birthday celebrations. Plus, Joey never seems to have a problem taking money/handouts from Chandler - why now? Also, Chandler explains that they're buying Ross a cake ($20), but why doesn't Monica (the chef and his sister) just make him one? (00:07:50)

The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Chandler is seducing Jade in Central Perk, he turns to face Ross after handing her the tissues. The camera then cuts to another angle where he is still facing Jade, and then he turns again to face Ross. (00:06:40)

The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant - S2-E5

Character mistake: When the whole group is eating dinner, Ross miscalculates what everyone owes. At first, he states "Everyone owes 28 bucks." He assumes all six people will chip in, so he was starting from a total of $168. Ross then decides, "Monica shouldn't have to pay" (since it's her birthday), so he instead divides the total by five to get each person's individual amount owed. He can be heard saying, "So... five of us is... $33.50 a piece." $33.50 is incorrect. He should have arrived at a figure of $33.60, ten cents higher per person, because $168 divided by 5 is $33.60. (00:10:05)

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.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.
