This (29 September 1994) is the first time that Phoebe tells anyone that she has an identical twin sister, who is a waitress. However, later in the series (23 February 1995), it is revealed that the sister is Ursula, who had previously appeared on several episodes of Mad About You
(1992) and was then also played by Lisa Kudrow
. Lisa played Ursula 22 times in Mad About You, from 7 October 1993 to 24 May 1999 and 7 times in Friends from 23 February 1995 to 1 November 2001, meaning her role as Ursula lasted almost as long as her role as Phoebe. During the two series' five-season overlap from 1994 to 1999 she never appeared in Mad About You as Phoebe. See more
At the gynecologist's office, Ross picks up a piece of medical equipment and nervously manipulates it to mimic a duck quaking. Carol (incorrectly) says, "Ross, that opens my cervix." The device, called a speculum, is used to dilate an orifice in the body to allow inspection. In this case, it would open the vaginal canal to allow inspection of the cervix. See more
