The One With The Fake Party - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: After Rachel spins the bottle and it points to Joshua, when she crawls toward him on her hands and knees the bottle is in front of her knees in the shots facing her, but in the shot facing Joshua the bottle is at her side, near her foot.

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Character mistake: Both lightning rounds at the end of the quiz are significantly longer than the 30 seconds that Ross claims they are. (Even though he is supposedly using a stopwatch to time them.) The guys' lightning round is actually 43 seconds long, and the girls' lightning round is 45 seconds long. (00:14:20)

The One With The Ballroom Dancing - S4-E4

Revealing mistake: During the end bit, before we get to see Phoebe when she is being interviewed at Lara and Jeni's Massage, if you look closely at the name of the massage parlor, you'll see that, although the camera shakes and bumps, the words stay on the very same spot on the screen. Obviously the canopy was blank and the name was digitally added later.

Visible crew/equipment: When Ross asks Rachel how she feels about him marrying Emily, several stage lights can be seen in the reflection of the TV during the entire scene.

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 1 - S4-E23

Visible crew/equipment: When Rachel exits her bedroom and says she's going to London, you can see tape markings on the floor by her bedroom door and the end of the set. Furthermore, you can see a chair which is likely part of the Central Perk set. [Widescreen version]. (00:20:25)

The One With The 'Cuffs - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: Rachel is telling Chandler to break off his relationship with Joanna, who had walked through the room and went into Chandler's bedroom, shutting the door. By the end of the conversation between Chandler and Rachel, the door is open but no one has entered or left the room.

The One With The Free Porn - S4-E17

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Phoebe tells the gang about her "Relaxitaxi" idea the position of Chandler's left arm changes between shots. In the frontal shots it's lying the back of the chair and in the shots from behind it's wrapped around Monica's shoulder.

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 2 - S4-E24

Continuity mistake: Joey is in their hotel room asking Chandler where Monica is, and the open bathroom door behind Chandler alternates from wide open to halfway open between shots.

The One With Ross's Wedding, part 1 - S4-E23

Other mistake: When Phoebe tells Rachel that she thinks she can help her get over Ross, she starts by saying that she needs some photos of Ross. Rachel immediately starts walking towards the kitchen, walking right past the red box of photos on the table beside Phoebe (which she will pick up on her way back and then hand to Phoebe), before Phoebe even mentions the chocolate (and then glass of water) she also needs. It's obvious that Rachel is headed for the kitchen before she knows she needs to go there. (00:12:00)

The One With Chandler In A Box - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: When Chandler is climbing out of the box, you can see the bottom of the set spotlight right above the bathroom door. (00:20:35)

The One With All The Haste - S4-E19

Factual error: The guys are gone for a single night, watching the Knicks game. (You can tell this because they talk about how "we can go see the game tonight," and when they get back everyone's wearing the same clothes as that conversation.) When they get back, both apartments are completely switched back: the large, heavy furniture is replaced, the posters are re-hung, etc. Even if they were gone from, say, 6 p.m. to midnight or so, there is no way that Rachel and Monica would be able to make that transition in that kind of time.

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Visible crew/equipment: In the shot where Monica suggests that Ross creates the questions, there is a red boom mic followed by a blue boom mic at the top center of the screen. (00:05:15)

The One With All The Wedding Dresses - S4-E20

Continuity mistake: When Rachel suggests to Joshua that they should get married, he says "What?", and his hands are out in front of him. The camera cuts to a wide shot and his hands are now on his thighs. Cut back to Joshua and his hands are now out in front of him with his fingers interlocked.

The One Where Chandler Crosses The Line - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: In the final scene wherein Phoebe finally agrees to play guitar again, Ross moves from the armchair to the sofa. As he sits down, his arm is by his side, but when the camera angle shifts, it is on the back of the sofa. (00:20:50)

The One With Chandler In A Box - S4-E8

Visible crew/equipment: Just as Ross asks Rachel for the necklace he got her, a stage light is very visible above the bathroom door. (00:12:35)

The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the veterinarian gives the ring back to Ross, there is a dog in the background that goes from standing up to lying down to standing again depending on the shot.

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Visible crew/equipment: Near the beginning of the show when Joey asks them who's going to ask the questions a boom mic is visible over Monica's head. (00:05:05)

The One With The Worst Best Man Ever - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: When Joey says that Ross needs to choose his best man before handing out of the ring, the camera cuts to Chandler. In the background you can see Joey getting up from the chair, but when it cuts back to Joey he is sitting down and then gets up in that shot. (00:02:01)

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: Matthew Perry's wit is so legendary that the scriptwriters have often incorporated his gags into the show.

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.
