The One Where the Monkey Gets Away - S1-E19

Continuity mistake: When Monica takes the newsletter from Rachel it's open to the pages with engagement news, and we can see the left page has pictures as Monica reads Mindy and Barry's notice on the right page, but when Monica wiggles out of her comment about Mindy being pretty that left page is now only words at the bottom, even though she's still open to the same page with Mindy and Barry's notice.

The One In Massapequa - S8-E18

Visible crew/equipment: After the anniversary party, when Rachel and Ross are back at the apartment and Ross tells her that it was the easiest four hundred bucks he ever made, Rachel gets up and just as she walks around the couch we can see the reflection of the cameraman/crew member in the mirror on the wall, at the right side of the screen.

The One With the Male Nanny - S9-E6

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, during a scene at Ross and Rachel's, Sandy picks up two puppets and puts them on each hand. He starts pulling the blue one onto his left hand, but when the angle changes there's a yellow one on his left hand, and a blue one on his right. It cuts to Ross, then when we go back to Sandy they've changed hands again. (00:24:30)

The One After 'I do' - S8-E1

Revealing mistake: In the one after Monica and Chandler get married, Chandler says he can't dance because his shoes are slippery. If you look closely, he managed to slip so much by standing on the bottom of Monica's dress, not because of the shoes. (00:06:00)

The One With The Rumor - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: The gang confronts Ross over his affair with a fifty-year old librarian when he was younger. If you watch the mirror behind him (in one of the girls' rooms), it changes angles every time the camera cuts between Ross and the rest of the gang. (00:17:40)

The One With Ross's Sandwich - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: In Central Perk, when Phoebe writes a note for Ross to put on his sandwich so no one eats it, she mentions that she stabbed a cop, and has a green mug in her hand. It cuts to Monica then back to Phoebe and the mug is out of her hand and she's yelling, "He stabbed me first." When it cuts back to the wide shot the mug is back in Phoebe's hand. (00:05:40)

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.
