The One With The Tiny T-Shirt - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: Ross is over at Chandler and Joey's looking through the peep hole for hours waiting for Rachel to return. When she does and Ross sees her go inside with Mark, Ross tries to open the door to go see her, and Chandler jumps on his back to stop him. As Chandler says "I...am not going to let you do this", Ross grabs the door handle. Then the angle changes, and as Chandler says "You...are surprisingly strong," Ross is further from the handle and grabs it again. (00:13:15)

The One Where No One's Ready - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Chandler sits on Joey in an attempt to regain possession of his seat, the shirt sleeve on his left arm becomes unrolled and slides down.

The sleeve remains rolled for the rest of the sequence. (00:06:30)

Continuity mistake: When Richard sits in Monica's room, when Monica opens the door we can see in the background the living room's window draperies, table, picture frame, etc., but they're not as they should be. In this mock-up the shade is pulled down, the draperies look different, and the direction they're all facing differs. (00:15:55)

The One The Morning After - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: Right before Ross and Rachel storm in, the girls show Joey how much their waxing stuff hurts. Phoebe starts putting the wax on Joey's inner arm, but then the shot changes and she is spreading in on the outer side. Also she slaps the strip on and the blue tab is hanging down off his arm, but then the shot changes again and it is on his arm with the other end of the strip hanging off the other side. (00:11:10)

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Phoebe are looking at the dollhouse, Monica says "I don't want a ghost for the house."

The One With The Jam - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: When they are talking about sperm donation, Joey is eating a cracker with jam on it. Between shots it instantly rotates in his hand. You can tell because the jam goes from being on the top to the bottom side, and because of the way he is holding it you can see there is only jam on one side. (00:14:15)

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.
