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

Continuity mistake: When Joey is counting the floors of Ross' building (the first time) to find out where Hot Girl lives, he is wearing a black top with a zip. When he rushes over to Ross' building he walks down the hall and knocks on what he believes to be Hot Girl's door. In these shots he is wearing a dark purple button up shirt. As soon as Ross answers the door, Joey is wearing the black top with a zip again. (00:03:15)

The One With All The Thanksgivings - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: In the flashback where Joey sticks the turkey on his head, the subtitle says Thanksgiving 1992. However, the show started in 1994 and Joey didn't move in until the previous fall, so the earliest Thanksgiving that he was there would have been 1993. (00:04:30)

The One With Joey's Big Break - S5-E22

Factual error: Joey and Chandler are supposedly crossing the George Washington Bridge but the exterior background viewed from inside the car is very obviously a repeat reel of another bridge, and their conversation goes on for far too long for the actual crossing. And the cutaway shot after Chandler is kicked out of the car shows an aerial view of the Brooklyn Bridge.

The One With Joey's Bag - S5-E13

Continuity mistake: When Phoebe is in the coffee house talking to her father and pretending to be the executor of her grandmother's will, after she says "lipstick and a daughter, big day for you" she folds her papers in half, but in the next shot they are unfolded and she then folds them again. (00:15:15)

The One After Ross Says Rachel - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: Monica and Chandler are piling their dinner plates with food while arranging to meet for a second quickie. Chandler's plate is stacked with various items when he agrees to meet Monica in the cellar, but when he tosses his plate back onto the table to rush off without eating anything, the plate is nearly empty. (00:04:45)

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

Visible crew/equipment: While Joey's looking for the "hot girl" the second time, after he knocks on the little girl's door and asks if her mother, sister, or babysitter are a hot girl, he runs off when she shouts for her father, and when Joey stops in another hallway full of doors the shadow of the moving boom mic can be seen on the door beside him.

The One With Ross's Teeth - S6-E8

Monica: What happened to your teeth?
Ross: I whitened them.
Chandler: Really?
Ross: Yeah, what... What do you think?
Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
Ross: Come on, seriously.
Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... Human teeth?
Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
Monica: How much longer?
Ross: Uh, uh... A day.
Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
Ross: I know! That's why I did it! Come on, are they really that bad?
Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
Monica: She will be after tonight.

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.
