Compared are the TV Version and the Extended Version


21 differences, incl. 18x alternate footage
Length difference: 28.2 sec



New season, old problem: Any Blu-ray release worldwide only contains the TV Version of every single episode while, for instance, the US and UK DVDs contain the Extended Versions.

Episode 4x21 (The One with the Invitation) is approx. half a minute longer. The length difference results from two extended scenes at the beginning of the episode - there are numerous further alterations though. There is a little flashback of earlier flirts between Ross and Rachel and the Extended Version contains slightly alternate takes or angles. Rather unspectacular which makes it even more curious.

Emily: "Good night, mommy."
