  • International Episode Title: Czech Republic: Svatba (Wedding)

  • The sub-plot where Joey has to kiss a man was originally intended to be a story about Joey auditioning for the role of an uncircumcised man. The rest of the group then came up with various ways of making him look the part. The story was changed on the advice of network censors, who thought it was tasteless. It was used five years later in "The One with Ross and Monica's Cousin".
