  • Notes

    • This episode marks James Micheal Tyler's first credited appearance as Gunther. His actual first appearance was in "The One With The Sonogram At The End", the second episode of the series. This is also the first episode in which Gunther speaks, however he only has one line. He was originally an extra, but he was the only one able to work the cappuccino machine, so he became a regular on the show. He is one of the only 4 non-friends to appear in all ten seasons. (The others were Mr. & Mrs. Geller and Janice.) Tyler appeared in 78 of the 238 episodes of Friends, making him second only to the six main cast members for the most appearances.
