Compared are the TV Version and the Extended Version.
7 differences, among them 4 with alternative footage
Length difference: 116.8 sec (= 1:57 min)
The Blu-ray release only contains the TV versions of the episodes, as was the case with the first season. Those who know the DVD releases from the USA or Great Britain will surely miss the extended versions, which can be found on these DVDs.
Episode 2x07 (The One Where Ross Finds Out) is almost two minutes longer. Basically, this is the result of a nice new scene at the end of the episode in which Ross is supposed to choose a cat for his new life with Julie while keeping new information about Rachel's feelings in mind. Furthermore, there are a few rather trivial additions here and there.
Different exterior shot after the opening credits. The subsequent shot in the hallway starts earlier as well: Monica walks up to Chandler's frontdoor and knocks.
Extended Version 5.7 sec longer
After Monica's comment about Chandler's pants, she adds: "It's cute."
In the Extended Version, Joey also gives Chandler advice how to handle Monica's strict training schedule. He makes a very unrealistic alternate suggestion.
The TV Version only contains an alternate take of Joey shaking his head at the end (no screens).
Joey: "Just tell her you wanna stop."
Chandler: "I can't, ok? While she is out of work, I'm all she's got. That's why I was thinking, maybe we can all pitch in and buy her her own restaurant."
Extended Version 9.4 sec longer
More conversation at the dinner table.
Michael: "Look, do you want a piece of pie or something?"
Rachel: "No! Ah! It's too late for that, man. I have just screwed this all up."
Subsequently, a different angle of Rachel saying "I just want to get over him...".
Extended Version 10.3 sec longer
When the table neighbor gives Rachel his cell phone, there's a slightly different montage in either of the versions.
Only in the TV Version, he says "Alright, fine." at the beginning (from the off). Then an alternate angle of him saying goodbye to the person he's talking to on the phone ("I'll call you back."). Same with Rachel's "Thank you" when she gets her hands on the phone.
Only in the DVD Versions, she says tipsily: "I am so good with people."
TV Version 0.5 sec longer
The TV Version cuts to black due to another commercial break, then a shot of Monica knocking.
The DVD Version contains a smooth transition to an additional exterior shot.
DVD Version 2.7 sec
Additional scene with Ross und Julie buying a cat. Ross is completely insecure because Rachel just told him about her feelings. As result, he shows a lack of interest at first. Then he asks if he could get a cat that's going to die soon. Last but not least, he's making more and more comments about two cats that imply his struggle that he can't really decide whether to take Julie or Rachel.
Julie: "Ooh, this one is cute, don't you think?"
Ross: "Yeah. This one's cute and...and that one's cute and that one's cute. They're all cute. They're kittens. Let's just wrap it up and get the hell out of here."
Julie: "Are you ok?"
Ross: "Yeah, me, me? Sure. Yea Yea. Yeah!"
Julie: "Ross, honey, hey... I know that this a big step for us but I've got a feeling we're going to be ok."
Ross: "Yeah, I know."
He speaks to the clerk: "I know. So um, do you have any cats that are really old or incredibly sick? Just..."
Julie: "Ross? I don't want one that is about to die."
Ross: "Oh, see, now we should of worked that out before we came down here."
Julie: "Ok, sweetie, I am going to narrow it down to this one over here..."
Julie: "...and this one with the stripes. Ok. You pick!"
Ross: "Uh oh, wait. I... I have to pick?"
Julie: Yeah, which ever one you want!"
Ross: "Oh well I um..I don't know. I mean it's not that easy to choose. You know? I mean both...both cats are...are beautiful and um...funny and...you know I am sure I would be happy with either cat. I, I just..."
Julie: "Well, do you wanna take both?"
Ross: "Both? Both? I can't have two cats... I mean, Joey's the kind of guy who can have two cats."
