Continuity: Gunther doesn't stop Chandler from smoking in Central Perk, but he does later in "The One with the Hypnosis Tape." (Maybe Central Perk's rules changed.)
Continuity: Joey, Monica, Ross, and Phoebe mention how difficult it was for Chandler to quit smoking three years ago. However, in "The One with the Flashback" we see that Joey and Chandler have only been roommates, and thus known one another, for about a year.
Continuity: In "The Last One (2)" Joey didn't know that when Chandler took Duck and Chick to a farm that they had died. But in the episode he knows that when you take a pet to farm, it means they are dead.
Continuity: Monica's snort, Joey's knuckle cracking, and Phoebe's hair chewing are never seen in any other episode.
Trivia: This episode is the first to mention that Phoebe is a twin. It is later revealed that she has an identical twin named Ursula.
Trivia: This is the first episode to establish Monica's childhood obesity.
Trivia: This is the first episode to show Jack and Judy Geller showing more affection to Ross than to Monica, which becomes a running gag throughout the series.
Trivia: This is the first episode to reveal that Monica is a clean freak, which becomes a running gag throughout the series.
Trivia: The name of Carol's doctor is Dr. Oberman. In "The One Hundredth" one of Phoebe's doctors is also named Dr. Oberman.
Trivia: Ugly Naked Guy is mentioned for the first time in this episode. This guy lives in an apartment on an adjacent building, which can be seen directly from Monica's apartment. He is mentioned a number of times throughout the show's first five seasons.
Trivia: In Monica and Rachel's living room, there is a different lamp on the coffee table compared with the one from the first episode.
Goof: When Rachel begins to look for her ring under the couch, Monica mentions eating ice cream while holding a spray bottle and towel. The bottle disappears then reappears in her hand before the conversation is concluded.
Trivia: In the opening credits of the cast in the fountain, they all open umbrellas. If you look closely the colors allude to early relationships. Ross and Rachel are both holding red umbrellas and are the first love interests. Joey and Chandler are both holding blue umbrellas and are roommates. Monica and Pheobe are both holding yellow umbrellas and were roommates before anyone else.
Trivia: An entire month has passed since the pilot episode.
Trivia: Joey and Phoebe don't have their own storyline in this episode.
Trivia: Although both Chandler and Monica's apartments have mechanical doorbells installed, they are not used once throughout the entire series. People just knock.
Trivia: Chandler has the closing line in both this episode and the last episode of the series.
Continuity: Ross's year of birth is inconsistent. In "The Pilot" (1994) Ross says he is 26, implying he was born in 1967. Also, in "The One Where Monica and Richard are Just Friends" (1997) he says he is 29. However in the next season in "The One Where They're Going to Party" Ross also says he is 29, implying he was born in 1968. Furthermore, in the next season in "The One Where Phoebe Hates PBS" Ross says he is about to get divorced again before he's thirty, implying he is still 29 and born in 1969. Also, in "The One with the Video Tape," Ross claims that he backpacked across Europe in 1983 then whispers to himself "I was thirteen?" implying he was born in 1969 or 1970.
Phoebe's Song: "Your Love"
Love is sweet as summer showers
Love is a wondrous work of art
But your love, oh your love,
Your love is like a giant pigeon
Crapping on my heart.
La la la la la...
Trivia: The waitress in Central Perk is Jasmine, the masseuse who works with Phoebe starting in "The One with the Dozen Lasagnas."
