    Trivia (4)

    • Goof: When the apartment bet is being established, immediately after Phoebe exclaims, "Oh, I have a game!", a camera is visible in the upper right corner of the screen.

    • Goof: It's somewhat hard to believe that in the few hours it must have took Chandler and Joey to go to the basketball game, Phoebe, Monica and Rachel could not only pack everything and move it into the other apartment, they could also unpack both so everything is back in its place.

    • Magna Doodle: What's up bro?

    • Continuity: When the girls come to the guys with the tickets and the offer that they'll give them the tickets if they give them back the apartment, Chandler comments that he won't give up his bachelor pad on which Monica asks if he even had a girl in the apartment. Chandler says no to that when in fact he was still in a relationship with Kathy when they switched the apartments and it would be strange that between the time Chandler and Joey moved to the new apartment and the time Chandler and Kathy broke up, Kathy was never in the new apartment.
