Goof: When Joey and Ross are in the coffeehouse talking about how they are going to be best friends, Joey points to Ross when he says Joey, and he points to himself when he says Ross.
Magna Doodle: Rachel call D'ward St. George
This is a reference to Edward St. George, a hair stylist on the set of Friends at that time.
Trivia: Joey speaks a rather familiar line in this episode when Paul hugs him. He says, "Paul, is it?" Chandler says that exact same thing when they meet Monica's date Paul (the Wine Guy) in the pilot episode, "The One Where Monica gets a Roommate."
Trivia: Monica appears in only one small scene in this episode, where she barely even speaks three lines.
Chandler: (looking in a catalogue) Pheebs, can you help me pick out an engagement ring for Monica? I can't figure this out, it's so hard! Should I get her a Tiffany-cut, or a princess-cut, or... (pulls his hand quickly away) Ow! Paper cut!
Phoebe: Do you have anything in here for $10?
Jeweler: Uh, yes. I have these two, rather beautiful, five dollar bills.
Phoebe: I'll give you one dollar for them.
Paul: Chandler, did your father ever hug you?
Chandler: No, did he hug you?!
Paul: I miss my dad.
Chandler: Well, you can always see my dad in Vegas, kissing other dads.
Joey: (to Ross) From now on it's going to be Joey and Ross, best friends! We're gonna be the new Joey and Chandler!
