Comparison between the TV Version and the Extended Version.
8 differences, among of them 3 with alternate footage
Length difference: 56.8 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 3x18 (The One With the Hypnosis Tape) is almost one minute longer. Especially Chandler's throwing the key in a rather gay way is memorable. Joey's mishap at the end is good for a laugh as well.
After the "Wipe out on your butt cheeks" line, the versions continue differently. The TV Version only shows Ross looking up while he talks back in the Extended Version.
Ross: "Look, I was trying to distract attention from that poor, old woman who was trying to stuff her breasts into the tube socks."
Rachel looks annoyed.
Extended Version 7 sec longer
Black screen due to a commercial break in the TV Version. As compensation, the Extended Version contains an additional exterior shot as transition.
Extended Version 0.7 sec longer
Ross warns: "Pheebs, he's not a mind reader."
Phoebe: "We don't know that..."
Rachel presses Monica on why she refuses to go out with Pete: "Why not?! He's a millionaire!"
Monica does not care and asks: "So?"
Extended Version 4 sec longer
At the end of the end, Chandler steps forward: "All right, I'm gonna go play basketball. Or at least let the really good guys use my ball while I say Can I play? Can I play?"
He opens the door and see Joey's key in the keyhle: "Oh, Joe, you left your keys in the door."
Chandler: "Here you go."
He tosses him the keys in a rather femine way, Joey and Ross look confused.
Different shot of Phoebe at the end of the scene. In the Extended Version, the camera zooms in on her. After an identical scene, the interior footage starts earlier in the Extended Version.
Joey: "Yeah, uh, all right Ross, if you had a million dollars what's the first thing you'd buy?"
Ross: "I'd probably get some municipal bonds, and then put the rest in the bank, and live off the interest."
Joey responds cynical: "Well....we've heard from Dr. Fun."
Alternate take when Chandler jumps up because someone is at the door.
Extended Version 13.2 sec longer
The Blu-ray contains alternate stock footage of the Colosseum.
When Joey has listened to Chandler's hypnosis tape, the TV Version contains a smooth transition to the following scene.
In the Extended Version, he has another encounter with the bad-positioned shelf. This time, he goes by with a satisfied look on his face - only to bang into the table.
Extended Version 5.3 sec longer
