Trivia: The only 2 characters who have not kissed in the show are Monica and Joey. Rachel kissed Monica: to get their apartment back; Phoebe: so Phoebe could see how good a kisser Rachel was; Ross: well we all know that story!; Chandler: to hide that he and Monica were dating had to kiss all three girls after he made the mistake of just kissing Monica goodbye; Joey: the two briefly dated and first kissed in Barbados. Chandler has kissed Monica (of course), Rachel (while covering for his relationship with Monica), Phoebe (while covering for his relationship and also when on a fake date before revealing said relationship), Joey (New Year's Eve in season 1 when Chandler is complaining about not having anyone to kiss), and Ross (implied during Rachel's birthday party where he was very drunk). Ross has kissed Rachel (of course), Phoebe (when he found out his wife was a lesbian), Monica (when he was in college and thought he was kissing Rachel while she slept), Joey (when Joey had to kiss a man for a role and Ross wanted to help him), and Chandler (mentioned to have happened during Rachel's birthday when he was very drunk). Phoebe has kissed Ross (above), Chandler (above), Joey (testing his ability, pretending to be Ursula, after David leaves, etc.), Rachel (above), Monica (before leaving for London, albeit just a lip peck). Rachel - mentioned in this entry already.

The Last One (1) - S10-E19

Trivia: A bit too unlikely to be just a coincidence, but I can't work out the significance. The doctor who delivers Phoebe's triplets (the one who loves Fonzie) played the evil head of Wolfram and Hart in "Angel". The doctor who delivers Erica's twins in this episode also plays the evil head of Wolfram and Hart in "Angel" (after the death of the first guy).

The One Where Joey Speaks French - S10-E13

Trivia: Just a thought: Every time Rachel hears someone talking French, she instantly becomes aroused (even when a woman does it). A few episodes later, she decides to move to Paris. Boy, that would be a hard time for her...

The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate - S1-E1

Trivia: In many of the first episodes, there is a beam going from the ceiling to the floor in between the kitchen and the living room. You can see it when they show the door. In "The One With The Giant Poking Device" Ross actually runs into it. In the majority of the later episodes, the beam is non-existent. The beam became the trademark for director James Burrows. Whenever he returned to direct an episode, the crew intentionally added the beam.

The One With Ross's Inappropriate Song - S9-E7

Trivia: The joke in this episode, broadcast in 2002, about Richard having a tape of him having sex with Monica, Chandler watching the tape, and then Monica coming in and being furious that he hadn't noticed it wasn't her, plus getting annoyed about being taped over by Richard, is IDENTICAL to one in an episode of Coupling (UK version), broadcast in 2000.

The One With The Jam - S3-E3

Trivia: The whole 'plot' surrounding Joey's arm injury was written into the show last minute, after Matt Le Blanc injured his arm on set and had to wear a sling for real. This is why we don't actually see him do it.

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)

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.
