The One With Two Parties - S2-E22

Other mistake: When Ross is at Monica's party getting Mr. Green's glasses and cigarettes he bumps into Mrs. Green and ends up having to come up with an alibi for the glasses and cigarettes. He then puts the glasses on, puts a cigarette in his mouth and says 'In fact I'm gonna go out into the hallway and fire up this bad boy'. At this point he walks past Rachel but he stops still as if frozen mid-step just before the shot cuts to him walking out into the hallway.

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. (00:10:05)

The One With The Lesbian Wedding - S2-E11

Revealing mistake: The first time we see Rachel's mom in the coffee house, Rachel puts her coat on the hook by the door. When she does this the wall visibly shakes.

Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
Monica: How much longer?
Ross: Uh, uh... A day.
Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?

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.
