Friends

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Continuity mistake: On the plane, when Rachel says "She's almost never right," (about Phoebe) you can see the guy's hand is on the armrest. Then a split second later, his hand is about half a feet off the armrest while saying "But she is sometimes." (00:15:15)

The One With All The Kissing - S5-E2

Factual error: When Monica is in the bath with Chandler, Joey comes in twice, forcing Monica to hide under the bubbles: first he asks Chandler if he wants some chicken, then again when Chandler calls him back and Chandler's giving Monica's order, with Monica still hidden under the bubbles. Somehow, Monica supposedly hears Chandler requesting a soda and nudges or pulls him or something to indicate he was going to get the wrong kind. But no way she could hear him under the water (stick your head in a tub and have your friend recite the alphabet, and see what I mean). (00:01:00)

The One With The Nap Partners - S7-E6

Continuity mistake: Monica and Chandler are in their apartment talking about Monica's worries that Chandler would dump her if she put on weight. When we first see Monica, the bite mark in her apple is quite small, but a few seconds later, it is suddenly much bigger without her eating any more of it. (00:18:00)

The One with All the Poker - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: When the group is sitting around the table in Monica's apartment playing poker, Monica is making something to eat. When she puts it on the table and sits back, we can see a pile of plates on the table on her right side. But in the next shot, the plates are gone. (00:05:35)

The One Where Underdog Gets Away - S1-E9

Visible crew/equipment: When Monica shuts the TV off while watching skiing, there is a closeup of the screen as it goes blank. You can see reflected in the blank screen an image of a man in a long sleeved shirt and tie, who does not correspond to any of the characters in the room. (00:08:00)

The One With Chandler In A Box - S4-E8

Monica: Fine, judge all you want to, but [to Ross.] married a lesbian, [to Rachel.] left a man at the altar, [to Phoebe.] fell in love with a gay ice dancer, [to Joey.] threw a girl's wooden leg in a fire, [to Chandler.] LIVE IN A BOX!

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.
