    • Factual ErrorDays of our Lives is taped in Los Angeles, California, but Friends is set in New York City.

    • Trivia: While sitting in Central Perk, Phoebe says her surprised/defeated "Oh, no..." for the first time when she hears that Lorne Greene died.

    • Trivia: There would be another way of knowing that Russ was wrong with his guess of "Dysprosium" for the crossword answer. The clue called for an eleven-letter word and "Dysprosium" is only ten letters.

    • Goof: Ross is dating the curator of moths and other wing-ed things from the museum. In "The One with the Stoned Guy" he dates the curator of insects. Wouldn't they both be the same person, since moths are insects?

    • Trivia: The producers of the show have joked in the past that the character of Russ was played by a famous Croatian actor named "Snaro", but Schwimmer--who obviously played the part--has said that the name "Snaro" was a tribute to a friend of his.

      Joey: I'm excited! I've never gotten reviewed before.
      Monica: You were so amazing as the king. I was really impressed--I was!
      Phoebe: Although, y'know what? You might wanna consider wearing underwear next time... Yeah, 'cause when you sat down on your throne you could kinda see your... "royal subjects".

    • Monica: (trying to cheer up Joey about getting bad reviews) Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait one minute. Wait a minute. I believe this will change your mind. (reading) "In a mediocre play, Joseph Tribbiani was able to achieve brilliant new levels of..." continued on page 153... "sucking."

    • Monica: (defending Fun Bobby) ...So he drank a lot tonight.
      Ross: Yeah, but... y'know... now that I think about it, I don't think I've ever seen Fun Bobby without a drink in his hand.
      Phoebe: Yeah. Oh, yeah, y'know... did you notice how he always starts his stories with "I was so wasted", or... "Oh, we were so bombed", or... "So, I wake up, and I'm in this dumpster in Connecticut..."

    • Joey: (about Fun Bobby) Monica, have you ever been with him when he wasn't drinking?
      Monica: Well, we just happen to go to a lot of places where you might drink. I mean, how do you go to a wine tasting without having a drink? Or... or to a club, or to the... zoo.

    • Chandler: Guess who's back in show business?
      Phoebe: Lorne Green?

      Rachel: Yes! I have a date.

      Chandler: With a crouton?

    • Phoebe: Okay, so, you know what you're doing, right?

    • Chandler: (entering his apartment to find Joey making lots of food) Hey.

      Phoebe
      : Russ is Ross! Russ, Ross...
      Rachel: Steve, sleeve.
      Phoebe: Okay, huh... no one is named "Sleeve."

    • Russ: You're jealous because I'm a real doctor.
      Ross: Hey, you're a doctor of gums! ...that's the smallest body part you can major in. It's like, day one, floss... day two, here's your diploma.

    • Chandler: Hey, would you sleep with somebody to get a great job?
      Rachel: I don't know. Who would I have to sleep with?
      Chandler: Me.

      Chandler: It's my game. You want the job or not?

    • Fun Bobby: I think you may have a drinking problem.

    • Russ: I guess you guys heard, Rachel dumped me.
      Chandler: Yeah, I'm sorry man.
      Russ: Oh, all she said was that I remind her too much of somebody. You have any idea who she's talking about?
