Goof: Ross says that the woman he is dating is the curator of insects at the museum. Wouldn't the curator of insects and the curator of moths and other wing-ed things (which is a different woman that he dates) from "The One with Russ", be the same thing, since moths are insects?
Continuity: In this episode Chandler says that the WENUS stands for Weekly Estimated Net Usage Systems. When the WENUS is referred to later in the series, it stands for Weekly Estimated Net Usage Statistics.
Trivia: Steve from this episode makes another appearance in a later episode of the show. In the season 9 episode, "The One With The Blind Dates", Steve is poor Rachel's blind date.
Goof: In the tag ending, when the girls are returning from showing the firemen out, the post and a chair that are supposed to represent the "fourth wall" of the set are visible. However, in the background the door wall, which includes a framed picture, goes well beyond this perimeter, and of course, there's no wall behind the post and chair.
Goof: When the firemen are going through the trash bin, Monica is already holding the burnt picture of her ex boyfriend, before the fireman can even take it out.
Trivia: This is the first time Janice says her catchphrase "Oh, my God!"
Trivia: Phoebe mentions her friend Abby who shaves her head. In a later series of episodes she has a friend named Bonnie who shaves her head, whom she sets up with Ross.
Continuity: A couple of changes have been made to Chandler and Joey's apartment for this episode. For one thing, their sofa has been rotated 180 degrees (the back used to face the audience). This was likely to accommodate the scene in which Chandler and Joey are sleeping in the fold-out bed, and would have to face the audience. A more dramatic change is in the fact that a bathtub and shower now exist opposite the bathroom door, necessary to accommodate the scenes where various people are "caught" in the shower. In the previous episode, "The One with the Dozen Lasagnas", there is a sink on the wall opposite the bathroom door. Interestingly enough, the next time we see the bathroom ("The One with the Stoned Guy"), the bathtub/shower are gone and the sink is back where it used to be with skis standing in the corner..
Goof: When Joey puts the bag of groceries beside the fridge, it falls over. Afterward, whenever the camera angle changes, the bag alternates between standing up and lying down throughout the scene.
Continuity: When Joey and Chandler meet Ronni in the hall for the first time we see a radiator next to their door. This radiator is absent in later episodes.
Continuity: Joey's dad seems surprised things are wrong between Ross and his wife. However, when Joey first meets Ross in "The One with the Flashback" Ross is depressed that his wife's a lesbian. In other words, Ross's marriage hasn't been going well the entire time Joey has known Ross.
Trivia: In this episode we learn that Joey is really Joey Jr.
Continuity: Phoebe uses the intercom and has Monica buzz her in the building. Any other time she and Ross just come right in, and in the very last episode of the series the entire gang has their own key.
Trivia: In this episode, Joey's mother refers to him as "Cookie", although this is also the name of one of his sisters (revealed in season 3). This raises the question, is "Cookie" just a term of endearment in the family, or is that her daughter's real name?
Trivia: This is the first episode where Chandler tells the gang about his father. We know now that he is dressed as a woman following younger men.
Factual Error: Monica tells her Aunt Syl that in the lasagnas, the meat is only every third layer. In lasagna, it is every fourth layer. There is one layer of lasagna noodles, one of Ricotta mixture, one of meat sauce and one of grated mozzarella, repeating.
Continuity: In this episode Phoebe says she never lies, yet in "The One With Rachel's Other Sister", Phoebe is an excellent liar and is even teaching Joey how to lie.
Trivia: In this episode Ross does not want to know the sex of his baby, but Rachel accidentally lets it slip. In "The One Where Chandler Takes a Bath", Rachel does not want to know the sex of her baby, and Ross mistakenly lets it slip.
Goof: When Rachel and Phoebe are talking about what a pig Paolo is, Rachel grabs the paper towels, pulls them across the kitchen, and then sits down while holding them. The camera angle then changes to Phoebe talking. When it cuts back to Rachel, the paper towel roll is untouched and Rachel is holding nothing. When we cut back to her later in the scene, she is once again holding the paper towels.
Trivia: Once Monica sees the new foosball table, she asks the guys where they are going to eat. Although Joey's response was "at the sink", we see in later episodes that the guys place a clear plastic sheet over the top of the table. This allows them to use it as a real table and still be able to see the game.
