Continuity mistake: In the last scene, Chandler is sitting on the couch in the new apartment, and the rooster is sitting on the back of the couch, with his tail facing the window. When Joey comes running out, the shot of the rooster shows his face toward the window, and then in the next shot he has returned to his tail facing the window. (00:20:45)

Visible crew/equipment: When Rachel is protesting that she loves her apartment, look very carefully towards the top of the screen on the long shot of Monica and Rachel before it zooms in and you will see the shadow of a microphone move swiftly across the wall. (00:17:40)

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Other mistake: Ross makes up the questions for the quiz. There are two groups of questions, one for the girls and one for the boys. Each one has four categories; there are four questions in each category. From these 16 questions, Ross asks ten. Thus, there have to be six left after the quiz. But in one group, seven questions can be seen (there are seven cards left). (00:12:50)

The One With The Embryos - S4-E12

Character mistake: After the guys have beaten the girls in the quiz, Rachel refuses to move apartments and Monica says: "If we had lost, we would have made them get rid of the birds." But they did lose. That's why the guys have got their apartment. She should have said if we had won.

Character mistake: Both lightning rounds at the end of the quiz are significantly longer than the 30 seconds that Ross claims they are. (Even though he is supposedly using a stopwatch to time them.) The guys' lightning round is actually 43 seconds long, and the girls' lightning round is 45 seconds long. (00:14:20)

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.
