Goof: In the scene where Chandler is telling Monica that it will be a long time before she has to deal with her own baby, Monica folds her arms. When the camera angle changes, her arms are down by her sides. When the angle pans back to Chandler, her arms are folded again.
I'm in the shower and I'm writing a song
Stop me if you've heard it.
My skin is soapy, and my hair is wet,
and Tegrin spelled backward is Nirget.
Lather, rinse, repeat and lather, rinse, repeat
and lather, rinse, repeat... as needed.
"I Play For Me"
When I play, I play for me
I don't need your charity
La lalala lalalalalalala
lalala lalala lalalalalalala....
...was the double, double, double-jointed boy.
Stephanie knows all the chords...
Terry's a jerk!
And he won't let me work!
And I hate Central Perk!
You're all invited to bite me!
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
What are they feeding you?
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
It's not your fault.
Trivia: In this episode we learn that Ross has a Ph.D.
Continuity: Phoebe knows guitar chords in this episode, but not in "The One with All the Resolutions" three years later when she's teaching Joey to play the guitar.
Trivia: In this episode we learn that Joey has seven sisters.
Trivia: This is the first episode in which Phoebe's song "Smelly Cat" is played.
Trivia: In this episode we learn that Ross is allergic to kiwi, lobster and peanuts.
Goof: Monica refers to the lawyer she used to babysit as Stevie "Fisher". In the end credits, however, his name is listed as Steven "Fishman".
Continuity: Monica orders Grilled Prawns, but in the episode, "The One Where Heckles Dies," she says she is allergic to shellfish.
Goof: At the concert Monica is recognized by a lawyer who remembers she was his babysitter when he was 8. Since graduation from law school normally occurs at about age 25, the babysitting would have been 17 years ago, when Monica herself was not much more than 8.
Trivia: In the end scene Joey overhears a call for Bob and leaps to answer the phone. He misses however and falls. The script called for Joey to answer the phone saying "Bob here", but Matt LeBlanc accidentally fell during filming and the producers went with that instead since they thought it was funnier.
Continuity: Ross's birthday is inconsistent. In "The One Where Emma Cries" Ross says his birthday is October 18th. In this episode (which aired October 19th), Ross is taken to the Hootie and the Blowfish concert on his birthday. However, in "The One with George Stephanopoulos", Joey and Chandler buy Rangers' tickets to celebrate Ross's birthday on October 20th, and Ross says that his birthday was seven months ago, implying his birthday is in March. Furthermore, in "The One with Joey's New Girlfriend" Ross tells Gunther his birthday is in December.
Continuity: Rachel says that Monica had sex with Fun Bobby out on the balcony. However in "The One Where Chandler Takes a Bath" Chandler wants to have sex on the balcony and Monica refuses.
Goof: Chandler dials Janice's number from memory, but since he last saw her she got married. It's unlikely that she would still be reachable at her old single-woman number in her new home.
Trivia: The giant magnifying glass that Joey ultimately ends up with was a device sold in the 40's and early 50's to allow cheaper televisions--some with only 3", 5" or 7" screens--to have a more viewable picture area. With the introduction of more affordable large-screen televisions in the mid-50's, they were discontinued.
Goof: Mr. Heckles' apartment in this episode definitely doesn't seem to be located directly underneath Monica and Rachel's, and also is not the same apartment as shown in previous episodes.
Goof: In the scene when Ross and Phoebe are talking about evolution and Phoebe tells him that he believes in something and she doesn't, she turns and she's asking "Why not?" but her lips are not moving.
Goof: In the scene where the gang is at Mr. Heckles' apartment, Ross tries to explain evolution to Phoebe with bird models. At one point he drops the first bird but when the camera angle changes, the model is still there.
Factual Error: In the scene where Joey tells the gang that he used to date a girl with a big Adam's apple, they all tell him that "women don't have Adam's apples." Actually, women do have Adam's apples. Everybody does, however, in women, they aren't as large or as apparent, due to less cartilege protruding.
