Comparison between the TV Version and the Extended Version.
10 differences, among them 5 with alternative footage and 2 longer scenes in the TV Version.
Length difference: 115 sec (= 1:55 min)
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 2x17 The One Where Eddie Moves In is almost two minutes longer. There are two additional scenes with Joey in his apartment, in which he eventually is overwhelmed by his art purchases. The other highligh is a significantly longer performance of Smelly Cat at the end of the episode. The rest in between is rather unimportant.

Joey goes to his white dog and looks where it seems to be looking. He then uses the intercom, hoping for some entertainment.
A man responds: "Hello."
Joey: "Louie? Where's Howard?"
Louie: "He went home."
Joey: "Oh. He said he might stop up after his shift."
Louie: "He said to tell you that he wasn't feeling so good."
Joey: "Oh. Hey what time do you get off?"
Louie: "I'm not feeling too good either."
The TV Version only shows the phone ringing and Joey answering it.
The EV, however, displays Joey walking around in the room, he wants to rearrange his sculptures. When the phone rings, he hurries forward and stumbles over them, which he comments with "Freakin' art!".
