The One With Chandler's Work Laugh - S5-E12

Continuity mistake: During Ross and Janice's conversation in Central Perk, when Ross comments, "You're ending this with me because I'm too whiny?" both his and Janice's left arms are up, but it cuts to the next shot and it's their right arms which are up, then it happens again when Ross says, "I've become so whiny that I annoy you?! Janice!" they both have their right arms up, but next shot it's their left arms up.

The One Where Joey Tells Rachel - S8-E16

Continuity mistake: At the end of the previous episode, Joey tells Ross that he has feelings for Rachel just as Ross is about to walk out of Central Perk, and there's a vase of tulips on the table beside the door and two things hanging on the coat hooks. The opening scene of this episode continues at the same moment of Joey's admission, and the vase has vanished and there's only a sweater hanging on the coat hooks.

The One Where Ross Moves In - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: When Chandler and Joey walk into the apartment to find boxes all over the place and also when Chandler talks about the air purifier, the door to the bathroom is open and the toilet is right beside the tub (odd that it's there in the first place), but when Joey tells Chandler he wants to play foosball and also when Joey's wearing the helmet, the prop toilet has vanished.

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.
