Comparison between the TV Version and the Extended Version.
7 differences, among them two with alternative footage
Difference: 13.8 seconds
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.
The episode 2x04 (The One With Phoebe's Husband is only a few seconds longer, so there aren't that many differences. Rachel talks a little bit longer about her rival Julie and the scene with the pigeon contains some alternative footage. The other small differences are nothing to speak of.
The Extended Version briefly shows the pigeon on the ground, then Rachel again. The TV version stays longer with the previous shot of Rachel and then shows her from a different perspective.
TV Version 0.6 sec longer
Longer black screen after the opening in the TV version.
The Extended Version has an introducing exterior shot instead.
Extended Version 1 sec longer
The TV Version stays a little bit longer with Rachel after she has said "Ooh, Julie's so smart, Julie's so special." in a disguised voice.
There's a cut to Monica in the Extended Version; then Rachel says in her normal voice: "What, does she go and put on an outfit at night and fight crime?"
Extended Version 3.6 sec longer
After Rachel has mockingly repeated Monica's advice ("You just have to get over it"), the Extended version shows Monica first and then Rachel mockingly adds: "Ohhh, I'm going to have to write that down on my hand."
The TV version fades to black at this point (commercial break) and fades in again in the apartment.
The Extended Version has a smooth transition to an additional exterior shot instead.
Extended Version 1.6 sec longer
This shot is a little bit longer; Ross enters the Central Perk.
The two shocked old ladies are shown a little bit longer and the picture fades to black a little bit later.
There's a small difference at the end of almost every episode, but together with the previous scene it can be counted as an extension.
