  • Trivia

    • During a flashback when Ross and Rachel are in bed and they had gotten back together after their break, Ross screams out "We were on a break!" and we see him screaming this in the bedroom. In the actual episode, we only hear his voice screaming the words, while the audience sees the main room of Monica's apartment.

    • Goof: When Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Chandler and Joey get their wedding invitations, in one shot you can clearly see Phoebe's full address displayed on the envelope. But in another shot it just says "Phoebe Buffay" on the envelope. As well as that, if it only had "Phoebe Buffay" written on the envelope, it would have been impossible for it to arrive by mail.

    • Continuity: On the wedding invitation that Ross sends Rachel, the envelope is addressed to "Rachel Greene."

      Chandler: Wasting our lives.
      Joey: I meant for lunch.
      Chandler: We have to do something. Okay. Something huge!
      Joey: We could climb Mt. Everest.
      Chandler: No, no. Not something stupid. Something huge!

    • Chandler: You know what? It seems like all of a sudden, so much is happening.
      Joey: I know. Ross is getting married.
      Chandler: Phoebe's making people.
      Joey: Everybody's doing stuff.
      Chandler: We just sit here. I mean, if I died, the only way people would even know that I was here would be by the ass print on this chair!

    • Monica: No! You're really not going?
      Rachel: Yeah. It's just gonna be too hard. You know? I mean, it's Ross. How can I watch him get married?

    • Chandler: It'd be nice to leave an ass-print on Mount Everest.

    • Rachel: I'm fine. I'm happy for him, really, I'm ... I'll work on it.

    • Phoebe: I never knew you couldn't fly in your third trimester!
      Joey: I knew that. (Everyone looks at him) So didn't know that, but you should see your faces!
