Comparison between the TV Version and the Extended Version.
8 differences, among of them 2 with alternate footage
Length difference: 70.5 sec
All Blu-ray releases of this cult series unfortunately only contain the TV-Version of all of the episodes. Viewers who already know the Extended Versions from the DVD boxes will miss the additional footage.
Episode 3x13 (The One Where Monica and Richard are Just Friends) is a bit more than half a minute longer. As often, there are a few more funny moments with Chandler. The longest additional scene is a converesation he has with Ross.
Black screen after the opening. The Extended Version contains an additional exterior shot instead.
TV Version 1.8 sec longer
While the shot with Richard's "I missed this" remains the same in the Extended Version, the TV Version contains a small additional take.
Only in the Extended Version, the scene is longer then. The previously watched customer in the porn department is approached on his preferences.
Richard: "Excuse me. Uh, we're going to be here for a while. So why don't you just go back there?"
Monica: "Yeah, we're not judging."
He then returns to the adult area satisfied.
Extended Version 10.6 sec longer
The scene at the café starts earlier. Chandler checks out the sofa with his hand: "You know that I love this fabric? I think I'm going to have a suit made out of this."
When Robert passes the cookies, Phoebes notices his crotch as well. In the Extended Version, the equivocal dialog continues.
He is obviously refering to the basketball in Chandler's hand who responds with a simple "Yeah."
Subsequently, another exterior shot on the Blu-ray.
Black screen in the TV Version, additional exterior shot in the Extended Version.
Extended Version 1 sec longer
The Extended Version conains more the pillow talk.
Monica: "And besides you know what? It wouldn't be fair anyways because my mother is trying to set me up with some lawyer."
Richard: "So, who's this lawyer?"
Monica: "Oh, no, she doesn't actually have one. But she's looking."
The shots before and after are a few frames longer in the Extended Version (no screenshots).
Extended Version 12.1 sec longer
Before Robert appears, the group conversation is longer.
Chandler: "Why don't you just tell him? You're going out with him."
Phoebe: "Oh, no, it'd be way too awkward. No. I haven't even seen it with permission yet. So, what do I do? Just, you know, break up with him?"
Ross: "I don't know. I think this is an unsolvable problem."
Chandler: "It's a curiat mariah. The unsolvable problem they gave to Captain Kirk as part of his training to be a starfleet commander."
Ross: "No, you mean yashi maru."
Chandler: "What's a curiat mariah?"
Ross: "It's the place with the cheap rooms where we stayed at in Israel."
Before Monica goes to Robert, the Extended Version sticks to her. The TV Version cuts to Richard twice.
