The One With The Mugging - S9-E15

Continuity mistake: When Joey goes to Monica and Chandler's apartment, he goes to the fridge to get something to drink to keep his bladder full for the audition. When he closes the fridge he has two bottles in his left hand. The camera cuts to Monica, then cuts back to Joey. He then has two cans in his left hand and is holding them differently. (00:14:55)

The One Where Emma Cries - S9-E2

Continuity mistake: In the coffee house, when Ross and Joey are having a fight about Joey's proposal to Rachel, Ross does the "quote gesture" with his hands and Joey says he doesn't know what this means. In TOW the Secret Closet, Joey used it himself when talking to Chandler, in the scene where he asks him to bring a bobby pin to pick the closet's lock. (00:08:55)

The One In Barbados, part 2 - S9-E24

Other mistake: The layout of the hotel surrounding the main cast's rooms as displayed during the sequence where Monica, Chandler, and Phoebe eavesdrop on Ross, Charlie, Rachael, and Joey is physically impossible. Ross enters the room Monica, Chandler, and Phoebe are in through the same wall they are using to listen in on Charlie and him, though while the camera is in Ross and Charlie's room, no door can be seen in that wall. Furthermore, a hallway can be seen through the doorway while Ross holds the door open, implying that the two rooms do not share a wall in the first place.

The One With The Fertility Test - S9-E21

Continuity mistake: When Rachel takes her gift certificate to the massage parlour to claim her free massage, she hands it to the receptionist and we can see that it has been torn up into eight pieces and taped back together. Yet when Phoebe tears up the gift certificate in a previous scene, we see her tear it into only four pieces before handing it back to Rachel. (00:05:00 - 00:08:20)

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.
