  • One of the best episodes. There are great guest stars, flashbacks to the days when Monica was fat and Rachel has a big nose, Joey on a game show, which couldn't not be funny, Phoebe has a bachelorette party and its an extended length episode! Fabulous!

    • Ross: (About his first kiss with Rachel in college) She was lying on my bed, all buried in people's coats. I leaned in to kiss her forehead, but I accidentally got her lips. I started to pull away, but then I felt her start to kiss her back. It was only for a second, but it was amazing. And now, now I find out that you kissed her first!
      Chandler: Wait, what bed did you say she was on?
      Ross: Mine.
      Chandler: I'm pretty sure I put her on my bed.
      Ross: No, she was definitely on mine.
      Chandler: Why would I kiss a girl and then put her on your bed?

    • Rachel: There's gotta be something else that you can do. I mean, what skills do you have? Roy: I don't know... I can make my pecs dance... I can pick up a dollar bill with my butt cheeks... I can go to that special place inside me where I feel no shame. Rachel: So maybe something in an office.

    • Ross: So, I made out with Adrienne and you made out with Missy. Well, I guess we're even. Chandler: Hmm hmm... Ross: We are even, right? Chandler: Just one more thing. I was so pissed at you that night that I wanted to get back at you. So I thought, who does Ross like the more than anybody? Ross: What did you do to my mom? Chandler: Not her!

    • Ross: Listen Adrienne, you can't tell Chandler about this. Adrienne: Oh believe me, Ross, I won't be telling anybody about this.

    • Ross: So weird to see all these people again... Oh my God, look, there's Geoffrey Cleric. Chandler: Who? Ross: He was roommates with John Rosoff. He went out with Andrea Tamburino. She dumped him for Michael Skloff. Chandler: Did I go to this school?

    • International Episode Title: France: Celui qui trahissait le pacte (The One Who Didn't Respect The Pact)

    • According to the credits, Officer Good Body's real name is Roy.

    • Courteney Cox-Arquette was pregnant during the filming of this episode. It is visible, especially in her face, that she gained weight from her real-life pregnancy. She also wears larger clothes to try to disguise this. On June 13th, 2004 Courteney and her husband David Arquette welcomed the birth of their daughter Coco Riley Arquette.

    Trivia (2)

    • Goof: When Monica collapses onto the beanbag chair at the very end of the episode, we can see the bottom of her fat suit below the hem of her skirt.

    • Continuity: This episode confirms the fact that Chandler and Rachel met in 1987 at the Geller's house for Thanksgiving, as seen in "The One with the Thanksgiving Flashbacks". The flashback seen in this episode is also from 1987, and Monica is still mad at Chandler for calling her fat.
