Crazy Credits

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. See more »

Alternate Versions

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.

The greatest show on television
9 February 2004 | by kmbick2See all my reviews

Friends is an excellent tv show. All of the actors are excellent!

People are saying they don't understand it, which confuses me. It's great entertainment! Friends are talking and living their life, and you see what goes on. It's going to be hell when it is finally over! The writers are the best I have seen. How could it be a horrible show when actresses such as Jennifer Aniston have won Golden Globes because of her work in it. No one who has watched this show once can say they did not laugh their ass off at least once during the 30 minute period!
