    • Goof: Joey says that the peeper was watching him walk around his apartment in his underwear, but his apartment is on the other side of the building from Monica and Rachel. The peeper would not be able to see into his apartment. Furthermore, Joey says he can't cook naked because of the peeper, but their kitchen is nowhere near the window.

    • Trivia: In the TV show My Name is Earl, "Robbed a Stoner Blind" episode, some members of the commune interpret this Friends episode. However, their performance has little to do with the actual episode and only reiterates several of the show's running gags. Later in the episode they are seen playing in an inflatable pool with umbrellas, reenacting the opening sequence of Friends.

    • Trivia: The kid that walks in on Rachel and Barry is the same kid that was sitting in the dentists chair in "The One With the Sonogram at the End" when Rachel went to give her engagement ring back.

    • Trivia: Jennifer Grey is famous for playing Jeanie Bueller in the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The movie did spawn a television series, Ferris Bueller, but it did not fare as well. However, it did introduce a young Jennifer Aniston playing the role of Jeanie Bueller.

    • Continuity: The back closet, later called the "secret closet," is open during the scene where Joey calls Sydney. In it you can see what looks like coats hanging up, but in "The One with the Secret Closet" Chandler claims to have never seen what's in there, and when he does, it's not coats hanging up neatly. Additionally, the door opens from the left, inwards, when in "The One with the Secret Closet", it opens from the right, outwards.
