Trivia

The Rembrandts joins a long list of rock groups performing the theme songs for shows. We have them singing "Ill be there for you" for Friends. The Cowsills sang the theme song for Love American Style. Cheap Trick sang the theme song for "That Seventies Show". The Peppermint Trolley Company sang the theme song for The Brady Bunch. Carla Rae Jeopsen sang the theme song for Fuller House. Roberta Flack sang the theme song for Valerie and the Hogan Family. The WHO sang the theme song for CSI:Miami. RObby Mcferrin sang the theme song for season 2 of the Cosby Show. Bill Hailey and the Comets sang the theme song for Happy Days. Frank Sinatra sang the theme song for Married With Children. And the list goes on and on. In fact every new season at least one hot rock band performs the theme song for one of the new shows that is rolled out by the networks (or the cable stations; and the online streaming services like Netflix, etc).

Crazy Credits

At the end of the 2nd part of the episode "The One With Two Parts" the epilogue is totally syncronized in Spanish, a reference to Marcel turning the TV's language into Spanish at the first part of the episode. See more »

Alternate Versions

In the season 8 episode "The One With The Halloween Party", Rachel gives out candy to the first trick or treaters that come to the door. On the NBC original broadcasts, she comments on a girl's cowgirl costume and about Ralph Lauren's new clothes line and the young girl says "Just give me the candy!". In the syndicated version, she just gives her the candy. See more »
