    • Monica: I just wanted to tell you that uh, well, I was going through a really hard time in London, with my brother getting married and that guy thinking I was Ross' mother. (Chandler laughs) Well, anyway, I just-- That night meant a lot to me. I guess I'm tryin' to say thanks. Chandler: Oh, you know that night meant a lot to me, too. And it wasn't 'cause I was in a bad place or anything it just meant a lot to me 'cause... you're really hot. (Monica laughs) Is that okay? Monica: That's okay. Chandler: And I'm cute, too. Monica: And you're cute, too.

    • International Episode Titles: Czech Republic: Jak se Ross přeřekl (As Ross Made a Slip of his Tongue)

    • During the hiatus between "The One with Ross's Wedding (2)" and "The One After Ross Says Rachel," Matthew Perry's hair was dyed red for the movie Three to Tango. His partially red hair is still visible in the episode.

    • Helen Baxendale, who played Emily, was pregnant during the filming of the season 5 episodes. In this episode, she is only in one brief scene at the airport.

    • This episode, as well as "The One with Ross's Wedding," features a special title sequence with scenes from only these episodes.

    • This episode was partially shot in front of a British audience.

    Trivia (11)

    • Goof: At the start when Ross is saying his vows, the reflection of the candle flames can be seen on Ross' suit shoulder.

    • Continuity: During the wedding ceremony, when the officiant hands Emily the ring to place on Ross's finger, in the shot where we can only see her face clearly, she appears to be shy and still pleased at the prospect of marrying Ross. Also, from the same angle, she seems pleased when the officiant finally pronounces them husband and wife. In all other shots, however,she is angry and upset as one might expect.

    • Factual Error: Rachel could not have used the airline ticket to Athens as it would have been in Emily's name, and a last-second change of passenger name at the gate would never be permitted under security regulations.

    • Goof: When Rachel enters the hotel room and stops when she sees Emily's parents, she stops just inside the door. When the camera angle changes, she's suddenly right beside Monica, who's helping her with the things she took from the cart, despite there not being time for her to move.

    • Continuity: At the reception Jack Geller says "Who serves steak when there's no place to sit? How are you supposed to eat this?" and Joey comes up eating steak in his hands. However in "The One With Ross's Wedding (Part 1)," Emily reveals that they are having chicken kiev (instead of chicken tarragon).
