The One With Ross and Monica's Cousin - S7-E19

Continuity mistake: When Monica comes into Phoebe's apartment for her Surprise Bridal Shower, the view of the hallway outside the apartment is a dead end on the right side (the left side cannot be seen), however, in S7:E12 (The One Where They're Up All Night), both when Phoebe is disposing of the fire alarm and when the fireman is at the door, it is clear that there is another apartment opposite hers, as well as a trash chute on the right side. (00:18:25)

The One Where They're Up All Night - S7-E12

Revealing mistake: When Chandler is getting a pan out to warm some milk, he successfully pulls the bottom pan out without too much disruption, however, the joke (and entire plot device - to wake Monica up) is to make as much noise as possible so Perry pulls out more pans on purpose and knocks them on the floor. This is quite clear - you can see him grasp the wok and pull it out onto the floor. (00:06:30)

The One With The Stripper - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: In this scene in Central Perk, Monica tells Chandler she has hired a stripper for him as she feels bad for not letting him have a bachelor party, and tells him to think of it as a 2 month anniversary present. However this episode is set 2 episodes after the Halloween episode, therefore allowing us to assume it is set sometime in November or later. Chandler and Monica got married in May, as stated several times in the show by the cast, therefore they have been married for around 6 months or more, not 2 months. (00:07:00)

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!

Trivia: Matthew Perry's wit is so legendary that the scriptwriters have often incorporated his gags into the show.

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.
