    Trivia (3)

    • In this episode we see that Joey is playing Dr Drake Ramorey on Days of Our Lives, however in a previous episode, "The One With Joey's New Brain", it is shown that the only reason Joey is back on the show is because he now has a woman's brain. The fact that he is now a woman in a man's body is also mentioned in "The One With the Cheap Wedding Dress". This would mean that he technically is no longer Dr Drake Ramorey even though he appears as him onscreen, even if he wasn't meant to be Dr Ramorey then how has Jessica Lockhart, who's brain he has, gained all this medical knowledge?

    • Goof: When Ross is messing around in the other bed in the semi-private room, while his legs are in the air you can see a white speck on the bottom of his shoe. When the camera angle changes, the speck is gone. The speck continues to appear and disappear throughout the scene.

    • Goof: When Monica asks if Phoebe wants to see something funny, Phoebe leans forward. When the camera angle changes, Phoebe's suddenly leaning back again.
