  • Trivia

    • Goof: In the scene where Joey, Chandler, Rachel (and later Ross) are talking, the Magna Doodle changes between "get out!" and "POOP"

    • Continuity: Although the wedding dress Emily wears to the wedding is similar to the one picked up by Monica, it is clearly a different design. What's more, Emily is wearing a matching jacket that was not with the dress Monica picked up, and a tiara instead of the veil Monica wore.

    • Trivia: When Rachel meets Joshua, she is wearing the same outfit she wore in the last episode, "The One with All the Haste."

    • Trivia: The wedding dress Rachel wears in "The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate" is the same wedding dress she wears in this episode.

    • Goof: When Chandler is in Central Perk complaining about Joey snoring, Monica's coffee mug keeps disappearing and reappearing.

    • Magna Doodle: "POOP".
      Magna Doodle: "get out!"

    • Trivia: Following the guys return to their apartment, the Magna Doodle is now back on the left side of the door, whereas before the apartment exchange, it was on the right side above the bulletin board.

  • Quotes

    • Chandler: You have to go to a sleep clinic.
      Joey: Look, I told you. I'm not going to any clinic. I don't have a problem. You're the one with the problem! You should go to a "Quit-being-a-baby-and-leave-me-alone" clinic!
      Chandler: They don't have those.
      Joey: Yeah, they do... Quit being a baby and leave me alone! There, you just had your first class.

    • Monica: I used to go out with this guy that was a really light sleeper and whenever I started to snore, he would just roll me over--
      Joey: Oh, yeah...
      Monica: ...he would just roll me over and I would stop snoring...
      Chandler: Next time you snore, I'm rollin' you over!
      Joey: I gotta do what I gotta do, you gotta do what you gotta do...

    • Chandler: She's got you running errands, picking up wedding dresses...(makes a whipping motion with his hand) Wah-pah!
      Ross: What's "wah-pah"?
      Chandler: You know... "whipped". Wah-pah!

    • Joey: This sucks! I didn't know I had to stay up all night before I went to this stupid sleep clinic. I'm so tired!
      Chandler: It's six o'clock!

    • (In Central Perk with Gunther eavesdropping)
      Rachel: (to Joshua) What if we got married?
      Joshua: (incredulous) What?
      Rachel: Oh, I know, I know... It's so totally like, whoa, can we do this? Y'know, I mean... but, it just feels right! Don't ya think? ...It does! It just feels right!
      Joshua: Wow! Uh... Rachel, um, you're a... real special lady... but, my divorce isn't final yet, and we've been on four dates! So, I'm thinkin'... no... but, thanks!
      Gunther: (yelling) You idiot!!

    • Sleep Clinic Worker: Your name please.
      Joey: Joey Tribbiani.
      Sleep Clinic Worker: And did you stay up all night in preparation for your study? (Joey falls asleep) Uh, sir? (Joey snores)
      Chandler: Yes, he did.

    • Chandler: Check out that girl, she is really hot.
      Joey: Yeah, she is... (falling asleep) wow... (talking in his asleep) How you doin'? You lookin' good...
      (Chandler wakes him up)
      Joey: What?!
      Chandler: You're coming on to the entire room!

    • Chandler: So, uh, what are you in for?
      Marjorie: I talk in my sleep.
      Chandler: What a coincidence! I listen in my sleep.

    • Monica: (in wedding dresses playing catch-the-bouquet) We're really sad, aren't we?
      Phoebe: Yeah, I think we are.
      Monica: This isn't even my dress.
      Phoebe: At least you didn't rent yours from a store called "It's Not Too Late."

    • Rachel: Well, I just called Joshua...
      Phoebe: Oh, how'd it go?
      Rachel: Well, I did my best to convince him that I'm not some crazy girl who's dying to get married... and I'm just going through a hard time.
      Phoebe: What'd he say?
      Rachel: Well, uh... his answering machine was very understanding.

    • (The girls have been discussing Rachel's "proposal" to Joshua)
      : I feel blue.
      Monica: Sweetie, I bet you anything he's gonna call you again.
      Rachel: Yeah, maybe, but y'know, I don't think I even care! I don't think he's the one I'm sad about. ...I know that I said I'm totally okay with Ross getting married, but as it turns out... I don't think I'm handling it all that well...
      Phoebe: Yeah, maybe...
      Rachel: ...and I am just trying to figure out why?
      Phoebe: Any luck?
      Rachel: Well, yeah... Y'know how Ross and I have always been on again, off again, on again, off again? ...I guess I just figured that somewhere down the road... we would be on again... again.
      Monica: Y'know what? I think we all did.

    • Monica: (wearing the wedding dress) I wish there was a job where I could wear this all the time... (wistfully) Maybe someday there will be...

      Lying on your back makes the base of your tongue and soft palate collapse to the back wall of your throat, causing a vibrating sound (snoring) during sleep. Sleeping on your stomach or side may help prevent this.
