The One With Phoebe's Dad - S2-E9

Question: I don't get the joke when Chandler says "Don't you have to be Claymation to say stuff like that?" Can someone explain this?

Answer: Monica just said "You guys haven't gotten your presents yet? Tomorrow's Christmas Eve, what are you gonna do?" It's a reference to the sappy dialog in all those Rankin/Bass claymation Christmas specials. Google "claymation" if you're after a description of the technical side.

The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding. (00:05:15)
