  • During the end credits, the amount of milk in Michael's glass keeps changing.
  • Joey says that he never lived alone, which is not true. He lived alone for a little while when he moved out of the apartment he was sharing with Chandler in The One Where Joey moves out. And also, he lived alone for a longer period of time after Chandler moved out with Monica. Then came Phoebe for a little while and left. Then came Rachel and left to Ross', and then came back. So he did live alone.
