The One With Joey's Award - S7-E18

The One Where Rosita Dies - S7-E13

Other mistake: In this episode we seemingly understand why Ross and Monica's parents favor Ross. In one scene at Monica's apartment Ross says that it is because their parents thought Judy was barren. This would make sense except that in TOW Rachel's Book, Jack and Judy tell Monica and Chandler that they had to get married because Judy was pregnant. Judy was using a diaphragm as birth control and Jack's dog ate it. It doesn't make sense that Judy would use a diaphragm if she thought she was barren. This was not news to Monica since she said she had heard the story about the dog eating her mother's diaphragm at her 5th grade Halloween party. (00:04:15)

The One With The Truth About London - S7-E16

Continuity mistake: In the flashback to London, the dress Monica is wearing is not the same one that she is wearing in the original episode, TOW Ross's wedding, although one can see that they tried to make it look similar. (00:16:20)

The One With Monica and Chandler's Wedding, Part 1 - S7-E23

The One Where Chandler Doesn't Like Dogs - S7-E8

The One With All The Candy - S7-E9

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe sits on the swing (when learning to ride her bike), her scarf has one end down her front and the other over her left shoulder. In the next shot, the end is over her right shoulder instead of her left. A couple of shots later, it is switched back again. (00:11:05)

The One With Chandler's Dad - S7-E22

The One With Rachel's Assistant - S7-E4

Visible crew/equipment: After Monica tells Chandler the secret about Nancy from Phoebe's old massage place getting fired, when it cuts to the wideshot of the apartment while Rachel's standing by the fridge, we can see the camera at the left side of the screen.

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.
