The One with the Stoned Guy - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Monica is explaining to Rachel that she has hired her friend Wendy as her waitress, Rachel is holding a water bottle in one hand and the cap in the other. Monica moves towards her and Rachel is pointing her hand in Monica's direction and then in the next shot we see Rachel from another angle and her hand is holding the cap on top of the bottle too fast to have happened in normal time. (00:08:40)

The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Mike play table tennis and Monica says "I think that may have missed the table" there is no one sitting in the chairs behind her. The shot then cuts to Mike and he replies "oh do you?" The shot then cuts back to Monica, she replies "er, yeah" and there are suddenly two people sitting in the chairs behind her. Then in the next shot of Chandler and Phoebe the women who were just in the chairs are now walking behind Chandler and Phoebe in the direction of the chairs, and in the next shot they take their seats. (00:38:40)

The One With the Holiday Armadillo - S7-E10

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ross takes a liquorice from the skull, in the first close up shot he is holding it in his hand, but then immediately after this when they zoom out, he is chewing a piece. This is impossible because he would have had no time to bite it. (00:00:50)

The One After the Superbowl, part 1 - S2-E12

Continuity mistake: When 'Drake' is having dinner with Erica (the stalker), Joey is seen to be wearing a ring on the ring finger of his left hand. This can been seen just before another diner begins to choke. When the episode cuts back to them in the restaurant, the ring is gone. (00:09:50)

The One After 'I do' - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: Near the end when Monica and Chandler are going on to dance for the last time, Monica speaks and her hair is neatly behind her right ear. The shot then looks to Chandler before going back to Monica immediately. However her hair is suddenly behind her left ear when she can't have moved it as her hands are in the shot at all times. (00:21:15)

Kathy: So, what did you do today?
Chandler: Well, I had an appointment to get my hair cut...
Kathy: Oh, it looks great!
Chandler: ...and then it got cancelled.

Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.

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.
