The One With The Birthing Video - S8-E15

Continuity mistake: In the one where Chandler watches the video of a woman giving birth, he takes a video out of the VCR and places it on the table (he's staring at the box and when Monica moves it we hear that a tape's inside).

The One With Ross' Step Forward - S8-E11

Continuity mistake: It's obviously December, with the set decorations and Rachel's reference to sitting on multiple Santas' laps because she is randy from her pregnancy hormones. The characters establish that it's Rachel's fourth month of pregnancy...but she became pregnant about six weeks before Monica and Chandler's May 15 wedding. Her fourth month would have been in July, not December.

The One With The Stripper - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: In this scene in Central Perk, Monica tells Chandler she has hired a stripper for him as she feels bad for not letting him have a bachelor party, and tells him to think of it as a 2 month anniversary present. However this episode is set 2 episodes after the Halloween episode, therefore allowing us to assume it is set sometime in November or later. Chandler and Monica got married in May, as stated several times in the show by the cast, therefore they have been married for around 6 months or more, not 2 months. (00:07:00)

The One With Joey's Interview - S8-E19

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, Joey is holding the Soap Opera Digest magazine. In one shot it is open but folded, then in another it is open all the way, then it's folded again, then it's open again, then it's closed, and then it's folded again. The change is never shown.

The One With The Birthing Video - S8-E15

Continuity mistake: When Chandler tells Rachel and Monica to look at the screen when the baby has come out, his arm goes from pointing at the TV to on his lap.

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)

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.

The One With the Sharks - S9-E4

Question: What's the name of the "scary painting" that Joey saw in the apartment of the girl he thought he'd slept with before? The strange and creepy painting (black and white, with an amorphous body and a chair). I really, really want to know who is the artist. Not Gladys - that's Phoebe's painting that comes out of the frame.
