Continuity mistake: In the last scene, Chandler is sitting on the couch in the new apartment, and the rooster is sitting on the back of the couch, with his tail facing the window. When Joey comes running out, the shot of the rooster shows his face toward the window, and then in the next shot he has returned to his tail facing the window. (00:20:45)

The One With All The Haste - S4-E19

Revealing mistake: When they are using cards to bet on the Knicks tickets, watch Joey carefully as he goes to reshuffle the pack from behind the arm of the chair. It's obvious that there are two decks, and he is in fact switching them over. (00:13:40)

The One With All The Wedding Dresses - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: When Chandler is telling Monica and Phoebe about the girl who picked him over Joey, look behind him and you will see Gunther nodding to a lady in a denim jacket. In the next shot, the woman walks up to the counter again, and again Gunther is nodding at her. (00:17:00)

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Visible crew/equipment: When Rachel is protesting that she loves her apartment, look very carefully towards the top of the screen on the long shot of Monica and Rachel before it zooms in and you will see the shadow of a microphone move swiftly across the wall. (00:17:40)

The One With Rachel's Crush - S4-E13

Audio problem: In the scene where Rachel walks into the guy's new apartment and they start talking about Joshua, it cuts to a shot of her in profile as she says "It's just so frustrating". Her mouth doesn't move as she says the words. (00:09:40)

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Other mistake: Ross makes up the questions for the quiz. There are two groups of questions, one for the girls and one for the boys. Each one has four categories; there are four questions in each category. From these 16 questions, Ross asks ten. Thus, there have to be six left after the quiz. But in one group, seven questions can be seen (there are seven cards left). (00:12:50)

The One With Rachel's New Dress - S4-E18

Continuity mistake: In The One With Rachel's New Dress, she's in her underwear on the sofa when Joshua comes in. In wide shots focusing on Joshua she's quite laid back, but in close shots of her she's sitting more upright. Worse than that, her legs are crossed, but uncross in the shot of his parents coming in, only to re-cross in the next shot when she gasps. (00:14:35)

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Character mistake: After the guys have beaten the girls in the quiz, Rachel refuses to move apartments and Monica says: "If we had lost, we would have made them get rid of the birds." But they did lose. That's why the guys have got their apartment. She should have said if we had won.

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Monica: What happened to your teeth?
Ross: I whitened them.
Chandler: Really?
Ross: Yeah, what... What do you think?
Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
Ross: Come on, seriously.
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?
Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
Monica: She will be after tonight.

Trivia: The Magna-doodle on the door in the boys apartment has a different picture on it every episode. There is usually some tenuous connection between the picture and the plot of the episode.

More trivia for Friends

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.
