The One The Morning After - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: In previous episodes we've seen that from the living room there's a short wall just inside Monica's bedroom (presumably to prevent a clear view inside, as her bedroom set isn't normally there). However in this episode when most of the gang are in her room, they're listening right by the door into the living room with nothing in the way. (00:11:25)

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene when Phoebe breaks into the other Phoebe's house and gets caught, the older Phoebe was telling the younger one that the man in the photo is not Frank Buffay, but is Chuck Mangioni. Right after that, as Phoebe 2 walks towards the camera, you can see that the door behind her moves open, and there is a visible shadow of someone who walks by that doorway. (00:19:00)

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.
