The One With The Secret Closet - S8-E14

Other mistake: When Chandler stops by to see how Joey's doing after Rachel has moved out, Joey's holding a gallon jug of Minute Maid orange juice with its brand name partially painted to hide it, so it now reads "Vinut Vaio" on the label.

The One With Ross' New Girlfriend - S2-E1

Deliberate mistake: The door to Monica's bedroom is open in many shots, such as when Ross introduces Julie, and we can see that there's a wall (with a framed picture) directly opposite the doorway, but when Phoebe's giving Monica the haircut they're in Monica's bedroom and there's no such wall in front of the door.

The One With Ross' New Girlfriend - S2-E1

Other mistake: After Rachel takes the phone from Ross and hangs up on Julie, when she's sitting at the table there's a bottle of Evian water in front of Monica with part of its brand name covered - the letters "e" and "n" are whited out leaving "via" on the bottle.

The One With Ross' New Girlfriend - S2-E1

Revealing mistake: At the end, when Rachel and Ross are talking on Monica and Rachel's balcony, the edge of the "brick" wall behind them has a gap in it. The facade is obviously a thin plastic sheet that is made to look like bricks and mortar, and it has pulled away somewhat from the surface it is attached to.

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.
