The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Other mistake: When Rachel arrives at Central Perk, Monica introduces her to everybody, including to Chandler, as if they don't know each other. In later episodes, we learn that Chandler met Monica and Rachel a couple of times when they were in high school (including when Monica cut his toe off). Chandler even kissed Rachel once, and since Chandler always says that he hasn't kissed many women, he should have perfectly remembered Rachel, and Monica should have remembered that the two of them knew each other.

Suggested correction: Chandler and Rachel never really knew each other well. Chandler will have been in her mind as that guy that her best friend's brother hangs out with, and Chandler will only know her as the friend of his friend's sister. I doubt they'd remember each other as the kiss they shared was when she was drunk, and they didn't see each other for 6 years while Rachel lived a richer and dependent on her father type life.

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Ross, Chandler and Joey are setting up Ross' furniture and Ross is bent down saying, "And I cannot feel my legs," Ross is holding up a manual. When it cuts, the manual is suddenly lying on the floor. [In other versions, such as Netflix, the first shot shows the manual falling to the floor and the second shot does not exist. However, the mistake is valid for the TV broadcast version of the episode]. (00:11:45)

Continuity mistake: When Ross shows Chandler and Joey the can of "Carol's favorite beer" it's unopened as Ross makes a crack about how he "should have known," but in the next shot we see Ross lifting the can and drinking from it, even though he never actually pulled open the stay-tab between the two shots (viewed in widescreen). [In the extended version of the episode you see Ross open the can before taking a drink. In the standard version, the mistake is valid]. (00:09:55)

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Before Monica stomps on Paul's watch, the chair closest to the fridge does not have fabric backing, then when Ross eats the Oreo and walks toward his jacket the chair closest to the fridge is now fabric backed and his jacket hangs from a chair with no fabric, plus there are only four chairs around the table. However, when Ross picks up his jacket this chair is now fabric backed, the chair closest to the fridge doesn't have a fabric back yet again, and there are now five chairs around the table.

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.
