  • Trivia

    • 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 in "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.

  • Quotes

    • Paul: I miss my dad.
      Chandler: Well, you can always see my dad in Vegas, kissing other dads.

    • Chandler: (Looking at rings in a catalogue) It's just so confusing. Should I get her a Tiffany-cut, or a princess-cut, or... Ow! Paper cut!

    • 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!

    • Paul: Chandler, did your father ever hug you?
      Chandler: No, did he hug you?!

    • 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.
