When Monica is on the phone with Chandler and Joey they ask her what she is wearing and she says nothing but rubber gloves and they come bursting through the door seconds later, but the door to their apartment is closed. If they ran from their apartment that fast, they wouldn't have had time to close their door on their way to Monica and Rachel's apartment. See more

At the end of ending credits, there is a "bye Phoebe" in Ben's voice-over. See more
