The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant - S2-E5

Character mistake: When the whole group is eating dinner, Ross miscalculates what everyone owes. At first, he states "Everyone owes 28 bucks." He assumes all six people will chip in, so he was starting from a total of $168. Ross then decides, "Monica shouldn't have to pay" (since it's her birthday), so he instead divides the total by five to get each person's individual amount owed. He can be heard saying, "So... five of us is... $33.50 a piece." $33.50 is incorrect. He should have arrived at a figure of $33.60, ten cents higher per person, because $168 divided by 5 is $33.60.

The One Where Ross Finds Out - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: When Rachel finds out that Ross and Julie are getting a cat, watch Rachel's neck. When she says "together?" she's not wearing a necklace; cut to Ross and Julie for a fraction of a second, then when it cuts back to Rachel saying "both of you?" she's suddenly wearing a necklace. It then disappears again when she says "isn't that just lovely?" hanging off the side of the tray she's holding. (00:05:15)

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.
