Compared are the TV Version and the Extended Version
11 differences, incl. 2x alternate footage
Length difference: 131 sec (= 2:11 min)
New season, old problem: Any Blu-ray release worldwide only contains the TV Version of every single episode while, for instance, the US and UK DVDs contain the Extended Versions.
Episode 4x16 (The One with the Fake Party) contains a little more than two additonal minutes. Especially Chandler profits from it, the result are several new gags: Particularly "The One with Chandler Spinning the Bottle" with the reference about his father is quite interesting.
The very first scene at the apartment starts earlier: Chandler comes up with some stupid pun.
Phoebe comes in without saying a single word.
Phoebe angrily throws her purse away. She still appears dissatisfied when she grabs some cerial.
Chandler: "Woa-oh. Cereal killer."
Monica critically repeats: "Cereal killer?"
Chandler: "Hey, come on, I say more dumb things before 9 a.m. than most people say all day."
From this point on, the Extended Version slowly zooms in on the action until the very end of the shot.
The TV Version on the other hands sticks (at least on Blu-ray) to the original perspective.
Additional black screen in the TV Version due to a commercial break.
+ 1.6 sec
Subsequent to Emily's little joke, Chandler intends to top it in the Extended Version. As a result, Monica puts him in his place.
Chandler (with British accent): "Anyone for more tea? No, just me then."
Monica follows him and says: "Hey Ringo. Every time Emily's around, you talk like her. Would you please cut it out?"
Chandler giggles: "I think you like it. I think you can't resist me when I do it. You want to eat me up like a cream pumpet."
Monica is not amused about his poor choice of words: "What?!"
Chandler: "All right, look, I don't know all the words."
In the TV Version, the subsequent shots slightly differ. Chandler's second "Buh-bye then" with British accent is missing as well.
Extended Version 27.5 sec longer
Ross elaborates on what he does differently with Emily: "(When Iím with her, Iím fun!) I do things like, like run off to Vermont, and, and you guys saw the doorknob. (I even signed up for helicopter classes.)"
Subsequent to an intercut of the others, Chandler's comment is longer: "(Maybe thatís because soy-burgers suck!) But I'm no obstetrician..."
After Rachel mentions her desperate plan, Chandler says exclusively in the Extended Version: "That sucks! Nobody's ever thrown me a bon-voyage-Emily party."
In the TV Version, the subsequent shot starts insignificantly earlier (no screenshots).
Extended Version 4.2 sec longer
In the Extended Version, Ross gets back at Monica for the childhood story she told in front of Emily: "Oh, oh, did she tell you that when she was little she was partially responsible for new legislation regulating the strength of swing sets?"
Monica makes the infamous gesture with both fists and walks away.
In the TV Version, the subsequent shot of Joey starts insignificantly earlier (no screenshots).
Extended Version 14.9 sec longer
Chandler still does not get how to play the game: "All right. I'll go. I'll go."
When he spins the bottle, Chandler mumbles: "Somebody lose. Somebody lose."
The bottle points at him and Chandler comments: "Story of my life."
He gives it another spin and this time, the bottle points at Joshua: "Story of my father's life."
Additional black screen in the TV Version due to a commercial break. The Extended Version contains an additional exterior shot instead.
Extended Version 1.2 sec longer
After Joey shows the two steaks to Phoebe, the Extended Version contains an additional scene at the apartment.
Emily: "I'll be back in a minute."
Chandler (with a smile on his face): "O-okay. She..."
Ross interrupts: "What are you doing to me?! I mean, I'm trying to get Emily out of here and you keep talking to her being all interesting and making her laugh! From now on, I don't want you to be funny anymore."
Chandler: "Huh, y'know what? Rachel wants me to be funny, you don't want me to be funny. From now on, I'm gonna be funny sometimes, and not funny others!"
Phoebe's comment is longer: "(Iím gonna eat like, yíknow millions of cows.) Mommy cows, daddy cows, baby cows... No. No, I will never eat baby cows! No veal!"
She hesitates for a second, then she delightfully says: "Ooh, but veal."
After Rachel reveals she intended to seduce Joshua, the conversation is not over yet.
Joshua: "Excuse me?"
Rachel mumbles indistinctly: "Seduce you. Seduce you..."
