This is a comparison between the TV Version and the Extended Version.
13 differences, 2 of them with alternate material
Difference: 82.4 sec (= 1:22 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.
Episodee 2x19 (The One Where Eddie Won't Go) is roughly one and a half minutes longer due to a lot of small extensions here and there. For example, there are more fights between the girls because of Phoebe's book.
Eddie talks a little longer before he gets up.
In the TV Version the following shot starts a few frames earlier (not illustrated below).
Extended Version 5.3 sec longer
Fade to black after the opening credits.

Before Phoebe joins them, there's some more mockery of Joey's hat.
Monica sees it on the table and Rachel says she should go ahead.
Rachel: "Go on! You know you want to..."
Monica puts it on.
Monica puts the hat back.
After Phoebe makes a cynical remark about Joey being offered the role of a slug Joey asks Monica: "Who've you been dating?"
Estelle comments on Joey's complaint about the bad offer: "Hey, there was a time when I used to play Pickle Tickle with Rick Harrison."
Cut to Joey.
In the TV Version you see Joey slightly longer, followed by a shot of the Twin Towers used as a transition to the following scene.
The Extended Version shows an exterior shot.
Then we see Chandler in the staircase a little earlier. He sneaks upstairs, hoping not to run into Eddie.

The scene in Monica's apartment starts earlier. Rachel is on the phone and Monica is absolutely annoyed because they were just about to play a game.
Rachel: "No, okay, honey, I know you didn't mean to. I know, me too."
Monica: "Rach, hang up! You're supposed to be taking a Goddess quiz. You know, you should lose like 100 points just for calling your boyfriend in the middle of it."
Rachel: "Bye bye. God."
The fight's climax was extended. They use words from Phoebe's book to insult each other. While some of the dialog at the beginning is identical, they are shown from a different perspective.
Monica: "That was only (one hour?)"
Phoebe: "You are such a leaf blower!"
Rachel: "Pool drainer!"
Monica: "Twig snapper!"
Monica (after a short hesitation): "That is not in the book!"
Rachel: "No! But that's what you are!"
When they run into the room this again is shown from different perspectives. Additionally, Rachel leaves first in the TV Version, while in the Extended Version it's Monica.
Extended Version 8.5 sec longer
Chandler talks to Joey's porcelain dog: "Yeah, with things like this, more is always better."
