The One With Rachel's Inadvertent Kiss - S5-E17

Trivia: When viewing this episode on DVD compared to viewing it on Netflix, not only are a few shots deleted on the Netflix version, but there are also shots which had been filmed differently when Rachel returns after her first interview. On the DVD, she walks over to the table, puts her briefcase down on the chair and walks to the fridge, takes out a bottle of water...and then in a closeup Chandler asks her what happened while he's holding the newspaper. But in the Netflix version, Rachel walks over to the table, and just as she puts her briefcase down on the chair she stands behind the chair, and Chandler asks her what happened - all in the same wideshot, with the newspaper lying on the table.

The One At The Beach - S3-E25

Visible crew/equipment: During the scene when Phoebe breaks into the other Phoebe's house and gets caught, the older Phoebe was telling the younger one that the man in the photo is not Frank Buffay, but is Chuck Mangioni. Right after that, as Phoebe 2 walks towards the camera, you can see that the door behind her moves open, and there is a visible shadow of someone who walks by that doorway. (00:19:00)

More quotes from Friends

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.
