The One With Christmas in Tulsa - S9-E10

Audio problem: In the scene before the opening credits, if you listen carefully to Chandler's line, "If I don't get it done, I'll be fired", you can tell it's an overdub. The background noise and volume levels are different than the rest of his speaking.

The One with George Stephanopoulos - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: When Ross wrestles his puck away from the little kid in the emergency room, it goes flying at the receptionist. The shot cuts, and it hits her from a completely different angle.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Phoebe tells the gang about her "Relaxitaxi" idea the position of Chandler's left arm changes between shots. In the frontal shots it's lying the back of the chair and in the shots from behind it's wrapped around Monica's shoulder.

The One With Two Parties - S2-E22

Other mistake: When Ross is at Monica's party getting Mr. Green's glasses and cigarettes he bumps into Mrs. Green and ends up having to come up with an alibi for the glasses and cigarettes. He then puts the glasses on, puts a cigarette in his mouth and says 'In fact I'm gonna go out into the hallway and fire up this bad boy'. At this point he walks past Rachel but he stops still as if frozen mid-step just before the shot cuts to him walking out into the hallway.

The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding, Part 1 - S7-E23

Revealing mistake: When Monica leaves the apartment and Chandler stays listening to the answering machine, check the wall beside the door. It changes the angle, as if somebody moved it (probably to hide the hall).

The One With The Jellyfish - S4-E1

Question: When Ross and Rachel are fighting, Chandler hides behind the door and bursts out saying "I knew it." When Rachel says, "It's not that common, it doesn't happen to every guy and it is a big deal.", is this just a Chandler moment or is there another joke I have missed?

Answer: The statements that she's contradicting (that it is common, it happens to every guy, and it's not a big deal), are the things that a woman commonly says to a man who is suffering from erectile difficulty, typically to assuage his bruised ego. However, most men do not believe that these statements are true, as evidenced by Chandler's outburst. He's so caught up in the proof that women are lying about it that he gives himself away.
