The One Where Joey Tells Rachel - S8-E16

Continuity mistake: At the end of the previous episode, Joey tells Ross that he has feelings for Rachel just as Ross is about to walk out of Central Perk, and there's a vase of tulips on the table beside the door and two things hanging on the coat hooks.

The One Where Joey Tells Rachel - S8-E16

Continuity mistake: When Monica and Chandler get back to the apartment Chandler tosses his coat over the back of the couch, and while they're talking about soulmates and a house of cheese we can see Chandler's coat in the reflection on the TV, but then it vanishes in the reflection, though it reappears when Chandler says that he wants to take Monica out to a restaurant.

The One With The Video Tape - S8-E4

Continuity mistake: When Ross turns on the camera and sits down in front of it, "flirting" with it and drinking wine, what you can see on the little camera screen is very different from when they play the same clip on the TV, in which looks like he was sitting much closer to the camera then he actually was.

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?

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.
