    • International Episode Title: Czech Republic: Rossovo odhalenĂ­ (Ross Revelation)

    • According to an interview on Oprah, that first real kiss between Ross and Rachel is Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer's favorite moment on Friends.

    • During the 2008 Primetime Emmy Awards, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences honored TV's Most Memorable Moments, determined by an online vote. The kiss between Ross and Rachel was number one.

    • Arye Gross receives the "And" credit.

    • The music that is playing when Ross and Rachel kiss was a studio music clip. The producers wanted to use U2's "With or Without You" but didn't have time to arrange for the rights, so they found a studio music clip that sounded "U2-ish". They used the actual U2 song the next episode.
