The One with the Fake Monica - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: When Monica, the fake Monica and Rachel are in the girls' apartment talking about the two Monicas auditioning for CATS, Monica (real) has a baguette and a bowl of sandwich filler on the table. In one shot of all three of them, she opens the baguette and starts filling it, then the camera goes in for a close-up of the real Monica and she opens the same baguette and starts filling it again.

The One with the Fake Monica - S1-E21

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Joey and Chandler come into the cafe to say that Marcel got into San Diego zoo, the man who wants him for animal fighting turns and says that Ross is making a big mistake. At this point the monkey starts to go down Ross's arm and almost drops off but in the next shot he is far up on his shoulder again. (00:14:40)

The One with the Fake Monica - S1-E21

Factual error: The monkey is allowed outside his cage at an airport gate. Animals, with the exception of assistance dogs, cannot be transported in the cabin with passengers, and this rule applied in the 1990s as well. There is no way a monkey would be brought through a security checkpoint into a terminal concourse of a NYC airport and allowed aboard a regular commercial airliner.

Kathy: So, what did you do today?
Chandler: Well, I had an appointment to get my hair cut...
Kathy: Oh, it looks great!
Chandler: ...and then it got cancelled.

The One With The Jellyfish - S4-E1

Question: When Ross and Rachel are fighting, Chandler hides behind the door and bursts out saying, "I knew it!" When Rachel says, "It's not that common, it doesn't happen to every guy, and it is a big deal!" is this just a Chandler moment or is there another joke I have missed?

Answer: The statements that she's contradicting (that it is common, it happens to every guy, and it's not a big deal), are the things that a woman commonly says to a man who is suffering from erectile difficulty, typically to assuage his bruised ego. However, most men do not believe that these statements are true, as evidenced by Chandler's outburst. He's so caught up in the proof that women are lying about it that he gives himself away.
