Take a look back at what the show's core group of pals almost looked like ...
Hank Azaria auditioned for the role of Joey. After being rejected, he begged to audition again. He auditioned and was rejected again, but he later appeared as David, Phoebe's (Lisa Kudrow's) scientist boyfriend.
Well actually, gum would be perfection.
Chandler: Gum would be perfection? Where did that come from? Coulda said thanks, coulda said I'll have a stick but no, for me, gum would be perfection. I loathe myself.
In the one where Ben auditions for a Soup commercial, the lego tower he builds in the waiting room changes colours from shot to shot.
When the "The One That Could Have Been" was divided into two parts for syndication, a sequence was added that had the ending credits superimposed. It shows fat Monica dancing to some music while eating some food. The original hourlong airing of "The One That Could Have Been" did not have the credits at the end of the first half hour and this scene was not involved.
The first airing of the pilot episode in syndication featured approximately 10 additional minutes of footage, including a musical number by Phoebe. This 30 Minute version has just become available on the Region 4 DVD of Friends. It includes Phoebe's song, and extended scenes at the coffee house and in Ross' lounge putting together the home entertainment unit. This version is not available on the Australian Video release.
