Compared are the TV Version and the Extended Version.
8 differences, among them 2 with alternative footage
Length difference: 25.5 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 2x08 (The One with the List) contains almost one more minute but the additional footage isn't really worth mentioning. There are two trivial alternate exterior shots in the second half of the episode as well. Similar to previous episodes, this might be a result of the new HD master for the TV Version on Blu-ray.
More black screen after the opening credits.

Chandler mocks Ross for having feelings for Julie because of her rinsing solution: "Ahh, I'm the same way. Show me a bottle of Visine and I am like: 'Woah, who am I?'. "
After Ross' "Everybody's good", he adds in the Extended Version: "...good and great in here."
Cut to the others who seems pretty confused.
When he then asks Phoebe to sing a song, this happens from a different angle.
Extended Version 2.2 sec longer
Monica clumsily jokes around after the human resources manager spoke in high terms of her résumé: "A shame none of it is true. I'm kidding. I'm kidding. No. it's all true. I'm just a little a little nervous, that's all. I'm fine now."
The Extended Version deepens the fact that Joey only said the single word "threesome" although he'd announced two words.
Chandler: "You still have another word that you can use."
Ross: "Oh hey, I...I think I know what it is. ‘Help’."
In the TV Version, the following shot begins a few frames earlier (no screenshots nor considered alternate footage).
Extended Version 8.9 sec longer
More black screen in the TV Version due to another commercial break.
+ 2.1 sec
Different exterior shot as transition.
