Did You Know?


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 »

This second episode continues the pace of the previous episode , focusing on issues of broken relationships of Ross and Rachel . While Ross gets a bombshell Carol , his lesbian ex - wife, Rachel must confront Barry , her boyfriend was left at the altar , and deliver the wedding . Parallel Monica gets her parents in her apartment for a family dinner , but gets nervous about facing your critics and has the support of Ross to divide the attention of their parents . The episode begins in Central Perk , where the group of friends discuss the importance that women give to kiss in counterpoint to highlight that men give sex . Interesting is to check the first appearance of Gunther , but no speech, only appears as an extra in Central Perk .
