The One With Ross's Tan - S10-E3

Visible crew/equipment: After Ross goes in for his disastrous tan, when it cuts to Joey and Rachel walking into their apartment the hole (used for a camera angle) in the wall can be seen at the right side of the screen. As an aside, when Ross leaves Monica and Chandler's apartment later just as Rachel walks in, that hole is seen in the hallway and it's covered up.

Visible crew/equipment: When Joey's telling Phoebe about having been at a nice restaurant with his date and how she took fries off his plate, in the shots facing Joey in the restaurant we can see the end of the set wall, with a 2x4 framed plywood board and a heavy duty extension cord hanging there.

The Last One (2) - S10-E20

Other mistake: When Phoebe and Ross are at JFK, some of the people who are at that airport are the same people who are also at Newark. It's particularly funny to see the people behind Ross and Phoebe at JFK when Phoebe claims they're on their honeymoon, and when it cuts to Rachel at Newark as she's looking for her boarding pass, those same people are there too.

Visible crew/equipment: After Joey describes Emma's funny Elmo cup to Phoebe, it cuts to Monica and Chandler walking in, and to the right of the door we can see the bulletin board is cut in size partially covering the hole in the wall. Later, when Phoebe and Joey leave after the wind-up toy race not only is this visible again, but through the hole we can see the other hole in Monica and Chandler's wall.

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.
