7 differences, three of which include alternative footage

She mouths a "No" towards the others.
The Extended stars earlier in the Central Perk, Monica makes fun of Chandler.
Monica brings Chandler some coffee: "Okay, here you go."
Chandler: "Oh, you know what? I asked for no cinnamon on top."
She simply removes the top layer with her hand, Chandler looks surprised.
The beginning of the next scene with Rachel on the phone can be seen in alternate takes.
Extended Version 11,5 sec longer
Joey’s introduction as a teacher can be seen in different takes. In the Extended he talks a lot longer before mentioning Dr. Drake Remoray erwähnt.
Joey: "(Good evening. I'm Mr. Tribbiani. And I will be teaching acting for soap operas.) Unfortunately, tonight will be my only class because due to a rare blood disease I only have two weeks to live."
A asks: "So, do we get our deposit back?"
Joey: "That was supposed to be an example of acting for soap operas."
Another student: "Then why are you only teaching tonight?"
Joey: "I'm not! Look, why don't we get straight to the lesson! Ok, all right?"
Extended Version 20,6 sec longer
After Joey mentions that he has given his student bad advice on purpose so he would not get the part he is interested in as well, the reactions differ.
In the TV Version Chandler says: "You totally screwed him over."
The Extended Version features Monica instead: "Joey, the last time an actor did something this bad, a president died."
Chandler tries to give Joey hints so he gets the reference: "Lincoln. Booth."
Joey: "Something happened at the tunnel?"
Extended Version 8,4 sec longer
