Continuity: In all the Season 1 episodes, you see a shelf system in between the fridge and the wall in the guys' apartment. This is missing in this episode which takes place before the first season.
Continuity: In "The One with the Blackout" Phoebe mentions that she was the last one to know when Monica had a crush on Joey when he was moving in and Joey looks surprised. But it's pretty obvious in the flashback that Monica is attracted to Joey, even if she does only invite him in for lemonade.
Continuity: In this episode, Joey says that he's "okay with the whole gay thing" when he meets Chandler. However, in "The One Where Nana Dies Twice", Joey says he didn't think Chandler was gay when they first met.
Continuity: In "The One with the East German Laundry Detergent" Rachel says that she can't even send back soup. But in this episode, she sends back two drinks. This may be because of the personality change she has undergone since she first arrived.
Goof: When Ross and Phoebe are on the pool table, Phoebe lies down and the 9 ball is next to her left shoulder. When the shot cuts closer, it changes to the 13 ball. Then the shot cuts back and it's the 9 ball again.
Goof: When Ross is talking to Phoebe in the bar, he puts shot glasses on the bar in groups. When the camera switches angles they're in a straight line, and then they're in groups again.
Continuity: We find out in this episode that Carol told Ross she was a lesbian one year before the Season 1 pilot episode. Yet at the end of Season 1, almost two years later, their son Ben is born. Ross and Carol must have had sex a year after they separated and while Carol was with Susan.
Goof: When Joey strips in Monica's apartment, from behind you can see for just one quick second that he is wearing grayish briefs.
Continuity: The writers of the show have commented on how Chandler and Rachel have met three times: In this episode, in "The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate (a.k.a. Pilot)" and in "The One with All the Thanksgivings".
Janice: Who of the six of you has slept with who of the six of you?
Phoebe: Wow, it's like a dirty math problem.
Janice: I'm sorry, I find it hard to believe that a group of people who spends as much time together as you guys do, has never bumped uglies.
Phoebe: (looking out the window) Wow, Cute Naked Guy's really starting to put on weight.
Chandler: I'm never gonna find a roommate, ever.
Phoebe: Why, nobody good?
Chandler: Well let's see, there was the guy with the ferrets. That's plural. The spitter. Oh, and the guy who enjoyed my name so much he felt the need to make a little noise every time he said it. "Nice to meet you Chandler Bing, BING!" "Great apartment Chandler Bing, BING!"
Ross: So how many more do you have tomorrow?
Chandler: Two. This photographer, who seemed really dull. And this actor guy, who I'm not sure about, because when he called and I answered the phone "Chandler Bing," he said "Whoa, short message."
Monica: Ross, foot on the floor, or come over no more.
Joey: Don't worry, I'm totally okay with the gay thing.
Chandler: What gay thing?
Joey: Uh, just... you know, the whole people being gay... thing... totally cool with it.
Monica: Get ready for me to whip your butt!
Chandler: Okay, but after that, we're shootin' some pool!
Rachel: (to the waitress) Excuse me. Hello. My friend ordered an onion, not an olive, and I ordered a rum and Diet Coke... which I don't think this is.
Waitress: I am so sorry.
Rachel: That's all right. (to her friends) I mean, how hard is it to get a couple of drinks right, huh?
Phoebe: (answers the door to find Heckles looking disturbed) No, no! Mr. Heckles, no one is making any noise up here!
Mr. Heckles: You're disturbing my oboe practice.
Phoebe: You don't play the oboe.
Mr. Heckles: I could play the oboe...
Phoebe: Well, then I'm going to have to ask you to keep it down. (slams the door)
Phoebe: Do you know that I couldn't sleep for, like, a month because I got a dot of ink on one of the sofa cushions?
Monica: Well, you could have just turned the cushion over.
Phoebe: I would have, except I had a big spaghetti stain on the other side.
Phoebe: See, this is what I'm talking about. I need to live in a land where people can spill!
Monica: You can spill... in the sink.
Ross: My marriage... I think my marriage is, um... kind of over.
Phoebe: Oh, no... Why?
Ross: Because Carol's a lesbian... and I'm not one... And apparently it's not a mix-and-match situation.
Ross: (about Carol) Maybe this wouldn't have happened if I'd been more nurturing, or I'd paid more attention, or I had a uterus.
Ross: (his foot gets caught in the pool table's pocket while making out with Phoebe) I can't get it out.
Phoebe: That's not something a girl wants to hear.
Ross: Sorry... Ow!
Ross: Stupid balls are in the way...
Ross: (morose) My wife's a lesbian.
