Giovanni Ribisi got the part of the condom guy. The producers liked him so much they invited him to audition for the part of Frank, and he got the part.

This isn't a slip-up because back then, Phoebe and Frank didn't know they are siblings yet. They find out in a later episode.

Just because the actor playing Phoebe's brother is the same man who played a very brief, small part in a much earlier episode does not mean that he was playing the part of her brother when he was getting his condom back. Obviously at this point, the writers hadn't yet established the part of Phoebe's brother, let alone the actor who would play that part. Therefore, this is not a slipup, just a small situation where the producers of Friends used the same actor twice, in different roles.

Yeah I don't think this qualifies as a slip up. Phoebe didn't know Frank Jr. at that point, and actually it doesn't even mean that Giovanni Ribisi was playing Frank at that time. So..not a slip up, but probably also something that not alot of people have caught! But trust me, I am a friends addict..I catch everything when it comes to this show! lol

She'd never met her brother yet, so she wouldn't go "Oh look this person must be my brother" and I doubt anyone remembers every person who has ever said anything to them. It's not a slip-up, right enough the casting dirrctors didn't cast him as her brother yet, but he would have still been around and theoretically could have met and forgotten since it was such a brief meeting.

Actually, the same actor was used twice. In the episode where Phoebe is replaced, he was not playing her brother.
