Trivia: The scene where Rachel is on the balcony is the only scene in Friends in which Monica, Joey, Phoebe and Ross ALL appear together without Rachel and Chandler. Chandler was at the ATM vestibule, and Rachel was on the balcony. This scene begins with Phoebe singing "New York City has no power..."
Trivia: Phoebe singing giant pigeon was a deleted scene from the pilot. When it was used years later in DVDs with extended footage the audio was not very good and they had to get Lisa Kudrow to redo the audio. (This information can be heard on extended DVD audio commentary for the pilot).Dan23
Trivia: When The One That Could Have Been was divided into two parts on TV part 1 end credits shows fat Monica dancing to some music while eating some food. In the hour-long version you don't get to see the credits scene for the end of the first half.Dan23
Trivia: When viewing this episode on DVD compared to viewing it on Netflix, not only are a few shots deleted on the Netflix version, but there are also shots which had been filmed differently when Rachel returns after her first interview. On the DVD, she walks over to the table, puts her briefcase down on the chair and walks to the fridge, takes out a bottle of water...and then in a closeup Chandler asks her what happened while he's holding the newspaper. But in the Netflix version, Rachel walks over to the table, and just as she puts her briefcase down on the chair she stands behind the chair, and Chandler asks her what happened - all in the same wideshot, with the newspaper lying on the table.Super Grover
