Only annotated lines are quoted below, not the entire script

62Megan(To Monica) So when are you getting married?
63MonicaOh May 15th.
Nitpick: In Episode E405/L9-10: , line(s) 405, Rachel says her birthday is May 5th, but in Episode E722/L183-184: , line(s) 722, a policeman notes Rachel's an Aquarius (which would put her birthday between January 21st and February 19th). In Episode E717/L62-63: , line(s) 717, we learn Monica's wedding is May 15th, 10 days after Rachel's birthday, but Rachel celebrates her birthday in Episode E714/L2-4: , line(s) 714, and Monica's wedding is in Episode E723/L576-578: , line(s) 723, 9 episodes later. That's a long 10 days! Interestingly, in Episode E722/L251-253: , line(s) 722, Monica says her wedding is in "two weeks". And they can't even be celebrating Rachel's birthday early again (like they did in Episode E518/L275-279: , line(s) 518), because in Episode E714/L25: , line(s) 714, Rachel says she's still 29 in Guam (implying she's 30 in New York).

Episode 405, Lines 9-10
9GuntherWhen's your birthday?
10RachelMay fifth, why?
Episode 722, Lines 183-184
183PolicemanYou’re an Aquarius, huh?
184RachelI bet you’re a Gemini.
Episode 714, Lines 2-4
2[SCENE]Scene: Joey and Rachel's, Joey is knocking on Rachel’s door, whose door frame is decorated with balloons. The rest of the gang is there as well. Rachel opens the door and the gang blow on noisemakers.
3RossHappy birthday!!!
4MonicaHappy birthday!!!
Episode 723, Lines 576-578
576(ACTION)Chandler and Monica both turn, take the rings from Ross and Rachel respectively, and place them on each other’s fingers.
577JoeyWe good? Yeah? Good? Once again, I pronounce you husband and wife. (To Chandler) Now kiss her again.
578(ACTION)They kiss and everyone applauds.
Episode 722, Lines 251-253
251ChandlerActually Monica and I are engaged.
252HelenaReally?! Congratulations. When’s the big day?
253Monica(looks at Chandler) In…in two weeks.
Episode 518, Lines 275-279
275(ACTION)Rachel enters.
276Phoebe(noticing her) Oh, look! Look! Look!
278RachelWhat?! What?! My birthday's not for another month!
279MonicaThat's the surprise!
Episode 714, Lines 25-25
25RachelY’know, I’m still 29 in Guam.
Nitpick: In Episode E811/L8-13: , line(s) 811, Rachel says it's her 4th month of pregnancy and she sat on Santas' laps "last week", so it must be near Xmastime. Even if it's only November, this means Rachel got pregnant no earlier than July. But, Rachel's pregnant at Monica's wedding (Episode E723/L583-589: , line(s) 723), which is on May 15th (Episode E717/L62-63: , line(s) 717). This is actually part of the more general summers-don't-exist problem. [This annotation came from another source, and I am in the process of properly crediting it. It is it not something I annotated myself]
Episode 811, Lines 8-13
8PhoebeWait a second! This is about the fourth month of your pregnancy, right?
10PhoebeThis is completely normal, around the fourth month your hormones start going crazy.
11RachelReally?! So this has happened to you?
12PhoebeOh absolutely yeah! Oh and keep in mind, now, I was carrying triplets so in, y’know, medical terms I was-I was thrice as randy.
13RachelWow! This explains so much! Last weekend, I went from store to store sitting on Santa’s lap.
Episode 723, Lines 583-589
583ChandlerPhoebe found your pregnancy test in the trash.
584MonicaI didn’t take a pregnancy test.
585ChandlerThen…who did?
586[SCENE]Cut to Phoebe and Rachel.
587PhoebeOh and they’re gonna have a baby.
589(ACTION)The camera zooms in on Rachel who has a very worried and frightened look on her face and she slowly takes a deep breath.
