This is a comparison between the TV Version and the Extended Version.
8 differences,3 of them with alternate footage
Difference: 57.4 sec
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 2x24 (The One with Barry and Mindy's Wedding is roughly one minute longer. As usual there are several small extensions here and there that are not too noteworthy. Still, it is pretty funny when Ross struggles over having to delier a speech which also leads Rachel into disaster.
Joey has another reason to why it wasn't hard for him to kiss a guy on set: "Besides, my first girlfriend was Lisa DiBatista. So... I'm no stranger to the mustache."
The following shot of Monica and Chandler is shown a little earlier.
A fade to black after the opening credits.
+ 1.7 sec
In the TV Version, Ross grins because of Chandler's mocking comment on Rachel's dress.
In the Extended Version he does so in an alternate take. Rachel angrily looks at him and he tries to explain himself away: "I was laughing at this quip Leno made last night. I wasn't laughing at your dress, I love you. "
Extended Version 12.4 sec longer
A fade to black indicates the commercial break in the TV Version. The Extended Version instead uses an additional exterior shot for the transition.
Additionally, the first shot inside the room is different.
Extended Version 3.4 sec longer
After Ross said that he couldn't just shout "Hey Rachel, your butt is showing!" she in the Extended Version also has something to say: "Yeah, better you than Barry's uncle."
Now follows a short dialog after Rachel got to know that Barry's relatives thought that she has syphilis because no one wanted to say that they are no longer in love.
Rachel: "Your choices were that or syphilis?!"
Ross: "It's ok, sweetie. At least this puts your whole tushy show into perspective."
She angrily looks at him.
Chandler hesitates at first before agreeing to meet his internate date in person.
Chandler: "I don't know."
Again, you hear a beep indicating a message.
Phoebe: "Listen to that. Those are the bing bongs of a woman in love with you."
In the TV Version you shortly see Rachel (obviously embarassed) and Ross says in a close-up shot: "Cheers!".
The Extended Version instead shows a different shot of Rachel, followed by Ross struggling over his speech.
Ross: "Uh...so to review: Rachel... took a lot of courage... doesn't have the syphilis... and wound up... with me."
In the end there's a different shot of him saing "Cheers!".
Extended Version 16.3 sec longer
