The One With The Birthing Video - S8-E15

Revealing mistake: When Monica gets out of her room to show Chandler her sexy clothing, as she opens the room's door, the buildings from across the street move. The scenario was a curtain and the wind that the door made when she opened it on the set made those curtains with the buildings printed in move. (00:06:25)

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.

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.
