** It was a running gag that when Joey said something raunchy, he'd follow up with an explanation in case the others didn't catch his meaning, which they always did. Once he said, "If you know what I mean," to which Monica replied, "Joey? We ''always'' know what you mean."
** In an earlier episode the Friends were comparing sex to a concert, comparing foreplay to a comedian, and penetration as the band. The women say that they should bring back the comedian for a second go a bit more often otherwise they [[ADateWithRosiePalms might just end up listening to the album of the band instead]]. Joey responds with: "...We're still talking about sex, right?"
