The One With The Tea Leaves - S8-E17

Continuity mistake: When Joey is picking up his bagel off the ground in Chandler's apartment he says something about the bagel hole being to small and he has it in his left hand. In the next shot it shows Chandler making a face and Joey's hand is empty. In the next shot Joey is sitting down and the bagel is back in his hand.

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Character mistake: Both lightning rounds at the end of the quiz are significantly longer than the 30 seconds that Ross claims they are. (Even though he is supposedly using a stopwatch to time them.) The guys' lightning round is actually 43 seconds long, and the girls' lightning round is 45 seconds long. (00:14:20)

The One Where Old Yeller Dies - S2-E20

Continuity mistake: When Monica asks Chandler and Joey to take Richard to the Knicks, Joey tells Monica, "We will bring him, but only if he takes the Jaguar." Chandler then drops his head in mortification, and the scene then cuts to focus on Monica's expression. In the right corner of this cut, you can see Chandler is looking ahead, and his mouth is moving saying "what am I supposed to say", but there is nothing being said during this scene. The camera then cuts to a different angle where Chandler lifts his head from the earlier drop just before he speaks to Joey. (00:04:30)

The One With The Ballroom Dancing - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: During the end bit, before we get to see Phoebe when she is being interviewed at Lara and Jeni's Massage, if you look closely at the name of the massage parlor, you'll see that, although the camera shakes and bumps, the words stay on the very same spot on the screen. Obviously the canopy was blank and the name was digitally added later.

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Monica: What happened to your teeth?
Ross: I whitened them.
Chandler: Really?
Ross: Yeah, what... What do you think?
Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
Ross: Come on, seriously.
Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
Monica: How much longer?
Ross: Uh, uh... A day.
Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?
Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
Monica: She will be after tonight.

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.
