The One Where Ross Meets Elizabeth's Dad - S6-E21

Trivia: Matthew Perry and Bruce Willis starred together in the movie The Whole Nine Yards. While making the movie, Matthew made a bet with Bruce that the movie would open in the top position at the box office. If it did this (which it consequently did) Bruce had to star in an episode of Friends for no fee.

The One Where Phoebe Runs - S6-E7

Trivia: In series 10 there's an episode where Phoebe's getting rid of stuff in preparation for Mike moving in, and she dumps two horrendous 3D paintings on Monica and Rachel. I figured they were just created for that show, but in this episode, 4 series earlier, before Rachel goes out for her run we can actually see one of them in the background - nice to see a long term plot device being used. There's even a shot of one of the 3D pictures in the apartment Phoebe shares with her grandmother in season one, when she's calling information looking for her father. One of these paintings can also be been in season 5, The One With All The Thanksgivings, just after Joey scares Chandler wearing the turkey.

The One Where Ross Hugs Rachel - S6-E2

Trivia: When Rachel thinks that she, Monica, and Chandler will be roommates, she sings, "Come and knock on our door," then Monica adds, "We'll be waiting for you," which are lyrics to the theme song for the 1970s-80s ABC sitcom 'Three's Company'.

The One With Rachel's Date - S8-E5

Revealing mistake: In the scene in the coffee house, Phoebe is talking to Monica who is drinking a cup of coffee. Towards the end of the scene, the camera is on Phoebe who is smiling & laughing at Monica. In the right hand corner is a side view of 'Monica' however, it is not Courtney Cox in the scene, but a completely different actress. [Widescreen version only, although the "wrong" nose is visible in the original]. (00:06:20)

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?

More quotes from 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.
