Continuity mistake: When we see the video, notice Rachel's hair. It is the same length as it is throughout season 8, but her hair is supposed to be the short bob she had in season 7 since it took place then. (00:17:00)

Other mistake: In series 8, 'The One with the Videotape,' when they are watching Ross and Rachel on the TV and when Rachel (on the video) is discussing the invitations and how Monica didn't shut up about sending them, Chandler points at the TV and makes a kind-of confused face. A few minutes later, just before he says 'Did you do it on our invitations?' the same shot of him pointing and pulling a face comes up. (00:17:05)

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.
