Episode 109: The One Where Underdog Gets Away

Only annotated lines are quoted below, not the entire script

Nitpick: In Episode 102: The One With The Sonogram At the End, line(s) 20-24, it's not surprising that Ross doesn't recognize his ex-wife, as she's short and brunette (played by Anita Barone, below: Anita Barone as Carol from Episode 102: The One With The Sonogram At the End). In every other episode, she's tall and blonde (played by Jane Sibbett, below: Jane Sibbett as Carol from this episode).
Episode 102, Lines 20-24
20MarshaSpeaking of issues, isn't that your ex-wife?
21(ACTION)Carol, Ross's ex-wife, has entered behind them and is standing outstide the exhibit.
22Ross(trying to ignore her) No. No.
23MarshaYes, it is. Carol! Hi!
24RossOkay, okay, yes, it is. (waves) How about I'll, uh, catch up with you in the Ice Age.

77PhoebeOh, I believe it. I think the baby can totally hear everything. I can show you. Look, this will seem a little weird, but you put your head inside this turkey, and then we'll all talk, and you'll hear everything we say.
78ChandlerI'd just like to say that I'm totally behind this experiment. In fact, I'd very much like to butter your head.
Observation: In the lines above, Phoebe suggests Ross stick his head in a turkey. I'm surprised no one took this opportunity to tell the story of how Joey got his head stuck in a turkey. Instead, we have to wait until Episode 508: The One With The Thanksgiving Flashbacks, line(s) 53-56 to hear this story.
Episode 508, Lines 53-56
53PhoebeOh no, I know! I know! It's the one where Joey got Monica's turkey stuck on his head!
54RachelWhat?! Joey got a turkey stuck on his head?!
55JoeyHey, it's not like it sounds.
56ChandlerIt's exactly like it sounds.
158ChandlerThe most unbelievable thing has happened. Underdog has just gotten away.
159JoeyThe balloon?
160ChandlerNo, no, the actual cartoon character. Of course the balloon. It's all over the news. Right before he reached Macy's, he broke free and was spotted flying over Washington Square Park. I'm goin' to the roof, who's with me?
Observation: The Underdog balloon is trouble. In Episode 105: The One With The East German Laundry Detergent, line(s) 204, Monica mentions how his head didn't inflate and in the lines above, he gets away.
Episode 105, Lines 204-204
204MonicaSomething went wrong with Underdog, and they couldn't get his head to inflate. So anyway, um, his head is like flopping down Broadway, right, and I'm just thinking... how inappropriate this is. Um, I've got something in my eye, uh, Joey, could we check it in the light, please?
