The One Where No One's Ready - S3-E2

Visible crew/equipment: After Rachel agrees that it will indeed take her 6 or 7 minutes to get dressed, with the caveat, "Once I figure out what I'm wearing," it cuts to Joey offering Ross the "glass of fat" as he stands behind the couch. In the next shot of Ross, the reflections on the TV screen show Joey is still sitting on the couch, and the camera and camera operator (wearing a dark shirt and raises an arm) behind the sofa. (00:01:15)

The One Where Joey Dates Rachel - S8-E12

Factual error: The premise of Chandler filling the high score list with dirty words is not possible for this game. Ms. Pac-Man only keeps track of a single high score, which is always displayed at the top of the screen. Unlike many other games of the era, there is no screen showing a list of additional top scores alongside initials during the attract mode, and there is not even a mechanism for entering initials within the game's code.

The One with George Stephanopoulos - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Rachel is explaining that she's not going back home, the friend with her arm on the back of the sofa behind her has her sleeve part the way up towards her elbow leaving a very prominent gap between the sleeve and bracelet. When the camera comes back to her the gap has now gone. (00:08:20)

Suggested correction: We are also shown how the Chick and Duck are in both apartments over time. And also, just because they are not shown on screen doesn't mean you can't hear them.

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

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)

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.
