Goof: When Phoebe pretends to be Estelle, she uses both Estelle's accent and her catch phrase "Joey, it's Estelle!" As Phoebe has never met Estelle, how does she know these details?
Note: Although that is technically true, a certain suspension of disbelief applies here. Estelle has been Joey's agent for almost ten years, so it's conceivable that Phoebe has met her on a number of occasions not covered on the show.

Trivia: For Monica, in case the question comes up again, New York City Civil Court is where she would have gone to change her name. There is also a distinction they make between assuming your spouse's name (Monica Bing or Monica Geller-Bing), reverting to your maiden name following divorce (Monica Geller) and a name change not related at all to marriage (Princess Consuela Bananahammock).
Trivia: There's a little deja vu in this episode:
Rachel: Well, I didn't get the job at Gucci and I got fired from Ralph Lauren.
Chandler: That is a bad interview.
And in Season 6's "The One with the Joke":
Joey: I didn't get the part... and I lost my job here.
Phoebe: That is a bad audition.
Trivia: When Mark meets Ross and Rachel outside of Ralph Lauren's, Rachel says to him, "You remember Ross?", to which Mark replies, "Sure, sure... What's with the chair?" You can see, however, that between "Sure, sure", and "What's with the chair", Mark says something else that was removed from the soundtrack. Rachel's "Ah" must have been dubbed in afterwards. When Mark leaves, Ross asks Rachel who that was, so what was removed was likely something that would have reminded him of Mark and therefore made the follow-up question seem strange.
Trivia: Although Phoebe changed her name to "Princess Consuela Bananahammock", she says that her friends can call her "Valerie". Valerie is in reality Lisa Kudrow's middle name.
Goof: When Ross hugs Rachel in Central Perk, after finding out she has been fired, he leans his face against hers twice.

Goof: In the scene where Phoebe and Mike discuss Phoebe's name change, you can see Mike's scarf change from tied to untied repeatedly between shots.
Trivia: It is revealed in this episode that Monica never legally changed her last name from Geller to Geller-Bing.
Continuity: We discover in this episode that Rachel's father is still living in her childhood home. In Season 2's "The One with the Two Parties", however, when Rachel is sharing her concerns about her parents divorce to Chandler in the hall. she says, "She gets the house, he's in some condo my sister's going to decorate with wicker...".
Trivia: Monica has determined after talking with Erica that "Shovely Joe" could not have been the father of their baby. She explains to Chandler, "..the thing she did with that prison guy? It'd be pretty hard to make a baby that way". This is the third time that joke has been used in the series. The first time was in "The One with Joey's Bag": Phoebe's grandmother has died and as she's telling the others, Monica rushes into Central Perk and announces that a couple is doing it in a car across the street. Phoebe says, "One life ends, another begins", to which Monica responds, "Not the way they're doing it". It was then used in "The One with the Birthing Video". Rachel is watching what she believes to be the birthing video when it is in fact a porno tape. She wonders if maybe it's showing how the woman got pregnant in the first place, but after watching for a bit says, "No, no... can't get pregnant that way".
Goof: Rachel says that Ross uses her full name when saying "Rachel Green's room," however it was established in "The One With Mrs. Bing" that Rachel's full name is Rachel Karen Green.
