The One Where No One Proposes - S9-E1

Visible crew/equipment: When Mr. Geller, Ross, and the others are looking at Emma lying in the bassinet in the nursery, in the shot facing the adults as the camera zooms in we can see the edge of the set wall (with clouds and stork) behind them, and the set lighting is visible at the top right corner of the screen.

The One With The Cake - S10-E4

Visible crew/equipment: After Rachel announces that Phoebe and Joey will perform something, Phoebe asks Joey if he'll be nervous because he has nothing prepared, and when Joey replies that he does it every day with three cameras pointed at him, it's perfect timing that in the next shot we can see filming equipment at the right side of the screen.

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.
