[[AC:101: Pilot (TOW Monica Gets a Roommate)]]
* Chandler is trying to console the newly-divorced Ross by pointing out that neither he nor Joey have ever had a long-term relationship. Unfortunately, halfway through his attempt at consolation, his train of thought jumps to the adjacent track and he instead uses Ross' divorce as a justification for him and Joey ''not'' having long-term relationships.
-->'''Chandler:''' Look, Ross, you gotta understand, between us ''[indicates himself and Joey]'' we haven't had a relationship that has lasted longer than a Mento. ''You'', however, have had the love of a woman for four years. Four years of closeness and sharing, at the end of which she ''ripped'' your heart out, and ''that'' is why we don't do it!... I don't think that was my point!

[[AC:103: TOW the Thumb]]
* [[https://youtu.be/8kCyRCCzYng Chandler sauntering off]] after successfully diverting attention away from his smoking habit by pointing out everyone else's flaws, reducing them to petty squabbling with each other.
-->'''Chandler:''' SO I HAVE A FLAW! Big deal! Like Joey's constant knuckle-cracking isn't annoying? ''[Joey looks concerned]'' And Ross with his overpronouncing every single word, and Monica with that ''snort'' when she laughs, I mean, what the hell is that? ''[Monica looks shocked]'' I accept all those flaws, why can't you accept me for this!?\\
''[long pause; Phoebe starts chewing on her hair]''\\
'''Joey:''' Does the knuckle-cracking bother everybody?\\
'''Rachel:''' Well... I- I could live without it.\\
'''Joey:''' Huh. What, is it like a little annoying, or is it like when Phoebe chews her hair? ''[Phoebe pushes her hair out of her mouth with her tongue]''\\
'''Ross:''' Aw, now ''don't'' listen to him, Pheebs, all right, I think it's endearing.\\
'''Joey:''' ''[imitating Ross' overdone inflections, moving his hand as though conducting]'' Oh, you ''do'', ''do'' you? ''[Monica laughs, then snorts twice and covers her nose self-consciously]''\\
'''Ross:''' ''[with the same inflections imitated by Joey]'' You know, there's nothing ''wrong'' with ''speaking - correctly''.\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[smirks]'' Indeed - there - isn't! ''[Ross glares at her]'' I should really get back to work. ''[starts to leave]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' Yeah. Otherwise someone might get what they actually ordered.\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[stops and turns around slowly]'' Well! The hair comes out and the gloves come off!\\
''[a five-way argument breaks out as Chandler, a self-satisfied smile on his face, stands up and leaves them to it]''
* [[https://youtu.be/0ol-HaN9uOw When Monica tells the gang that she's breaking up with Alan (they all liked him more than she did), all five of them collectively act like a jilted lover]].

[[AC:105: TOW the East German Laundry Detergent]]
* David Schwimmer had a knack for physical comedy, and this episode includes a classic example. After helping Rachel do her own laundry for the first time (if not without incident), Ross is rewarded with a kiss, and is so ecstatic he doesn't pay attention to where he is moving and bangs his head on an open dryer door.

[[AC:106: TOW the Butt]]
* Joey's "Freud!" song, so good it shows up in nearly every ClipShow for the rest of the series' run. Phoebe, Monica, Chandler, and Ross know that Rachel's excitement at seeing Joey on stage will evaporate as soon as the play begins, and they're quite right...
-->'''Joey:''' ''[singing, as Freud]'' All you want is a dinkle\\
What you envy's a schwang\\
A thing with which you can tinkle\\
To play with, or simply let hang
* Joey uses Monica's bathroom to put cream on his butt. Chandler then shows up.
-->'''Chandler''': Where's Joey? His mom's on the phone.\\
'''Monica''': In the bathroom. I wouldn't go in there.\\
'''Chandler''': Oh, come on. We're roommates. ''(goes in the bathroom, only to scream loudly off screen and race back out again with his hands covering his face)'' MY EYES! '''MY EYES!'''

[[AC:107: TOW the Blackout]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iolxQiMRF7k Cat jumps on Ross' head.]]
* Chandler's attempts to flirt with Victoria's Secret model Jill Goodacre start off [[https://youtu.be/xP9kTTDi1VU inauspiciously]].
-->'''Chandler''': ''(thinking)'' "Gum would be perfection"? "Gum would be ''perfection''". Could have said "gum would be nice", could have said "I'll have a stick", but no no no no no. To me, gum is "perfection"! ''I loathe myself.'' ''(HeadDesk)''
* Things don't improve when Chandler tries to blow a bubble with the gum, thinking it would come across as impish, only to spit the gum against the wall instead.
-->'''Chandler:''' ''[thinking]'' Nice going, imp. Okay, i-i-it's okay. All I need to do is reach over, and put it back... in my mouth. ''[he does so... or so he thinks]'' Good save! We're back on track, and I'm... ''[[IAteWhat chewing someone else's gum]]. [grimaces]'' This it not my gum, oh my God, oh my God... ''[starts choking on the gum]'' And now you're choking.\\
'''Jill:''' Are you all right? ''[Chandler gives her a double "OK" sign despite being in obvious distress]'' My God, you're choking! ''[she rushes over and performs the Heimlich manoeuvre; Chandler spits the gum out again and starts gasping for breath]'' That better?\\
'''Chandler:''' Yes... thank you. That was... that was...\\
'''Jill:''' Perfection? ''[smiles; Chandler smiles back]''
* In TheStinger, the power has come back on, and Chandler and Jill have thanked each other and said their goodbyes, which in Jill's case involves kissing Chandler on the cheek. After she leaves, Chandler turns to the security camera:
-->'''Chandler:''' Hi. I'm account number 7143457, and, uh... I don't know if you got any of that, but I would really... like a copy of the tape.

[[AC:108: TOW Nana Dies Twice]]
* As the episode's title implies, Ross and Monica's Nana dies... [[https://youtu.be/AzjwQQqHkbE twice]]!
* Chandler doesn't understand why people think he's gay:
-->'''Chandler''': I just have to know, okay. Is it my hair?\\
'''Rachel''': Yes, Chandler, that's exactly what it is. It's your hair.\\
'''Phoebe''': Yeah, you have homosexual hair.

[[AC:109: TOW Underdog Gets Away]]
* Joey finally hits it big... [[https://youtu.be/wDUcKcM3Wp0 as a model for VD]]! To quote the poster, "What Mario isn't telling you... VD: you never know who might have it."
** The other five find the poster hilarious; Joey, not so much, as not only is it scuppering his every attempt to hit on girls, but it has also ruined his Thanksgiving plans:
--->'''Joey:''' ''[entering Monica and Rachel's apartment in a funk]'' Set another place for Thanksgiving. My entire family thinks I have VD.\\
'''Chandler:''' Tonight, on a [[VerySpecialEpisode very special]] ''Series/{{Blossom}}''!
** In TheStinger, he sees one of the posters in the subway and tears off the "VD: you never know who might have it" caption, only to reveal another one saying "Bladder control problem" underneath. So he tears off that one, and reveals a caption saying "Stop wife beating". He tries again, and this time the caption reads "Hemorrhoids?"... and finally, at the fourth attempt, he reveals the caption "Winner of 3 Tony awards". Good enough, he thinks, and leaves.

[[AC:111: TOW Mrs. Bing]]
* Rachel's attempt at an erotic novel is completely appropriate due to her horrible typing skills. Women with heaving beasts and niffles (usually found on the heaving beasts, according to Joey), men with huge throbbing pens (Ross says you don't want to be around when they start writing with them), and more!

[[AC:115: TOW the Stoned Guy]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKLzYHZOC6I Ross and Joey talking dirty]]. Ross' latest girlfriend asks him to talk dirty to her, but as he has no idea how, he just blurts out "vulva". The next day, he seeks advice from Joey:
-->'''Joey:''' All right, look, I'll start, okay?\\
'''Ross:''' Joey, please.\\
'''Joey:''' C'mon, c'mon! All right, ready? Look. ''[impassioned]'' Oh, Ross... you get me so hot, I want your lips on me now. ''[Ross is stunned]'' Eh? ''[he and Ross nod]'' All right, now you say something!\\
'''Ross:''' I, uh... I really don't think so.\\
'''Joey:''' C'mon! You like this woman, right?\\
'''Ross:''' Yeah!\\
'''Joey:''' You want to see her again, right?\\
'''Ross:''' Sure!\\
'''Joey:''' Well, if you can't talk dirty to me, how are you gonna talk dirty to her? Now tell me you want to caress my butt!\\
'''Ross:''' ''[absorbs this]'' Okay, turn around. ''[Joey gives him a look]'' I just don't want you staring at me when I'm doing this.\\
'''Joey:''' All right, all right, all right. ''[turns his back to Ross]'' I'm not looking. Go ahead.\\
'''Ross:''' All right. Okay. ''[clears throat]'' I want- okay, I, I, I want to... feel your... hot, soft skin with my lips.\\
'''Joey:''' There you go! Keep going, keep going.\\
'''Ross:''' I, uh... ''[Chandler enters from his bedroom, fresh from a nap; he stops and takes in the sight]'' I want to take my tongue, and... ''[this gets Chandler's undivided attention; he grins ear to ear and makes his way over to the desk to listen]'' and, and...\\
'''Joey:''' Say it! ''[{{Beat}}]'' SAY IT!...\\
'''Ross:''' Run it all over your body... until you're trembling with... ''[Chandler sits on the desk, knocking the chair against a hockey stick which scrapes along the front; Joey and Ross get worried looks on their faces and slowly turn around to look at him]''\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[still grinning]'' ... ''with''...?\\
'''Ross:''' Funny story!\\
'''Joey:''' You're not gonna believe this.\\
'''Chandler:''' It's okay, it's okay, I was always rooting for you two kids to get together.

[[AC:116: TOW Two Parts, Part I]]
* This is the first episode to feature Phoebe's twin sister Ursula, crossing over from ''Series/MadAboutYou''; Chandler and Joey have dinner at Riff's and initially mistake Ursula (whose waitressing is down to its usual standards) for Phoebe. The next day, they see Phoebe at Central Perk, and Chandler remembers why he's usually hesitant to engage Joey in conversation about anything:
-->''[Chandler and Joey are peering through the window at Central Perk]''\\
'''Chandler:''' All right, now look at her and tell me she doesn't look exactly like her sister.\\
'''Joey:''' I'm sayin' I see a difference.\\
'''Chandler:''' They're twins!\\
'''Joey:''' I don't care! Phoebe's Phoebe. Ursula's... hot!\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[as he and Joey go indoors]'' You know that thing, when you and I talk to each other about things?\\
'''Joey:''' Yeah?\\
'''Chandler:''' Let's not do that anymore.
* During a LamazeClass, Carol gets really freaked out about the idea of giving birth. Ross tries to comfort her, leading to this outburst:
-->'''Carol:''' Oh, what do you know?! No-one's going up to you and saying, "Hi, is that your nostril? Mind if we push this '''pot roast through it?!'''"
* And then the next class, Carol doesn't show up. Ross argues that since Susan actually is a woman, she should play the "pregnant woman" role while he plays the "supportive partner" role. Susan successfully argues that since she's the one in a relationship with Carol, she should be the "supportive partner" while Ross is the "pregnant woman", so she'll get to play the same role she actually will be playing when her partner gives birth. Ross seems to be taking it pretty well until the teacher says "Now, imagine your vagina opening up like a flower."

[[AC:118: TOW All the Poker]]
* Joey, Chandler and Ross dancing to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BLosnG_M3rk "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"]]. The funniest part is how they subtly and gently bounce along, them the "aweemaweh" start, and ''then'' they start actually dancing.

[[AC:120: TOW the Evil Orthodontist]]
* Chandler is staring intently at the telephone, waiting for a girl to call. Monica sneaks up behind him and [[SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud makes a telephone buzzing/ringing sound]]. Chandler scrambles for the phone to answer it, realizes he's been tricked, and tells her "Hell is filled with people like you." Monica tosses her head defiantly while smirking.

[[AC:122: TOW the Ick Factor]]
* The guys make fun of Monica for dating the much younger Ethan:
-->'''Ross''': ''[Looks at camera]'' [[PowerRangers It's MORPHIN' TIME!]] ''[crosses wrists]''
-->'''Joey''': TYRANOSAURUS!
-->'''Chandler''': TRICERATOPS!
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Season 2]]
[[AC:201: TOW Ross's New Girlfriend]]
* Chandler and Joey are sporting new haircuts courtesy of "Vidal Buffay". Monica is impressed with the results and approaches Phoebe to ask about having her hair cut, but her method of bringing up the subject doesn't get the desired result at first:
-->'''Monica:''' Pheebs! Y'know what I'm thinkin'?\\
'''Phoebe:''' Oh, okay! ''[thinks]'' How... it's been so long since you've had sex, you're wondering if they've changed it?\\
'''Monica:''' ... no. Although now that's what I'm thinking...
* Chandler asks if anyone knows a good tailor (when Joey asks if he needs some clothes altered, Chandler snarks that he just wants someone to draw on him with chalk), and we get a classic moment of Joey cluelessness:
-->'''Joey:''' Why don't you go see Frankie? My family's been goin' to him forever. He did my first suit when I was 15. No, wait - 16. No - excuse me - 15. ''[still not sure]'' All right, when was 1990?\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[exchanges a look of disbelief with Monica and Phoebe, then leans in to Joey]'' Okay... you have to ''stop'' the Q-tip when there's resistance!
* After Ross comes home from China in a relationship with Julie, Rachel follows his lead of going out with an old flame and spends the night with Paolo. Then Ross and Julie arrive the next morning:
-->'''Ross''': What are you doing here?\\
'''Paolo''': I do Racquela.
* Phoebe agrees - somewhat reluctantly - to cut Monica's hair. HilarityEnsues when she doesn't quite understand who Monica wanted her hair like:
-->'''Phoebe:''' Relax, I know what I am doing. This is how he wears it.\\
'''Monica:''' ...How ''who'' wears it?\\
'''Phoebe:''' Creator/DemiMoore.\\
'''Monica:''' Demi Moore is not a ''he''. \\
'''Phoebe:''' Well, he was a he in ''Film/{{Arthur}}'' and in ''Film/{{Ten}}''. \\
'''Monica:''' ''(stands up)'' That's [[Creator/DudleyMoore DUDLEY Moore]]! I said I wanted it like DEMI Moore!\\
'''Phoebe:''' Oh. ''[[OhCrap OH!]]'' \\
'''Monica:''' Oh my GOD!\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''Oh my God!''\\
'''Monica:''' OH MY ''GOD''!\\
'''Phoebe:''' I'm sorry! I'm sorry, I'M SORRY! Which one is ''Demi'' Moore? \\
'''Monica:''' She's the act''RESS'', that was in ''Film/{{Disclosure}}!'' ''Film/IndecentProposal!'' ''[[Film/{{Ghost}} GHOST]]!''\\
'''Phoebe:''' Oh! Oh, she's got gorgeous hair. \\
'''Monica:''' '''I KNOW!''' THAT'S WHY I WANTED TO LOOK LIKE HER!!\\
'''Phoebe:''' Oh, I'm...[[PlayingTheVictimCard y'know, my mom's...dead...]]\\
'''Monica:''' '''OH MY ''GOD!'''''
* They later play it as if she has some horrible disease, with Monica in her room and Phoebe at the door, explaining it'll take some time for her to recover. When Joey asks if he can see her, Phoebe tells him he has such pretty hair that it'll probably set Monica off again. [[StealthInsult She then tells Ross he can come in.]] [[DoubleTake Ross realizes a second later what she is implying.]]
* Joey's tailor turns out to [[DirtyOldMan "take advantage" of every customer he has]], much to Chandler's horror. [[https://youtu.be/gzomehgKneI Joey is completely oblivious to this]]:
-->'''Joey:''' ''(in a "duh!" tone)'' ''That's how they do pants!'' First they go up one side, they move it over, then they go up the other side, they move it back, and then they do the rear.\\
''(Chandler and Ross stare at Joey)''\\
'''Joey:''' What? Ross, will you tell him. Isn't that how a tailor measures pants?\\
'''Ross:''' ''(to Chandler)'' Yes, yes it is. ''(to Joey)'' In '''prison!'''
* Joey's OhCrap when he realises the truth moments later. And he eventually decides to call his dad:
-->'''Joey:''' ''(on the phone)'' No, I swear to God, Dad! That's not how they measure pants!
* [[GreenEyedMonster Rachel]] later uses Phoebe's celebrity confusion when the latter offers to cut Ross's new girlfriend's hair:
-->'''Phoebe:''' Rachel, just so I don't screw it up again; Creator/AndieMacDowell is the actress in ''Film/FourWeddingsAndAFuneral'', right?\\
'''Rachel:''' Uh, no. That's Creator/RoddyMcDowall. Andie [=MacDowell=] is the actor in ''[[Film/PlanetOfTheApes1968 Planet of the Apes]]''.

[[AC:202: TOW the Breast Milk]]
* Ross trying to drink Carol's breastmilk.
-->'''Ross:''' Give me the bottle. ''(squeezes milk onto his arm)'' Give me the towel. ''(wipes the milk off and storms away)''

[[AC:204: TOW Phoebe's Husband]]
* Rachel getting attacked by a pigeon. Forgot how high Jennifer Aniston can shriek. Made even funnier by her attempts to catch the pigeon.
-->'''Rachel:''' That's right, you just read the Family Circus ''[advances on pigeon with a cooking pot]'' Enjoy the gentle comedy...
* And when Rachel first meets Phoebe's husband, she opens the pot in surprise, and lets the pigeon go. Phoebe's husband is really impressed, and asks how she did it. Which leads to the gang [[https://youtu.be/zRs-YRtCXoU revealing secrets about each other]].

[[AC:205: TOW Five Steaks and an Eggplant]]
* Ross finds a message for Chandler on his answering machine:
-->'''Ross:''' Hey, Chandler, why is this woman leaving a message for you on my machine?\\
'''Chandler:''' Oh, see, I had to tell her that my number was your number, because I couldn't tell her that my number was my number, because she thinks that my number is Bob's number.\\
'''Ross:''' Hey, tell me again, what do I do when [[Series/ThreesCompany Mr. Roper]] calls?
* In the tag scene, the woman calls the apartment again, with Joey laying on the couch instead of Chandler. Originally, Joey was going to answer it, but he tripped on his way to the phone, which was deemed more hilarious, [[ThrowItIn so it was left in.]]

[[AC:206: TOW the Baby on the Bus]]
* Phoebe's songs are always good for laughs, and since this episode features a subplot in which a professional guitarist is given Phoebe's gig at Central Perk, there are several sterling examples of her... unique songwriting skills.
** Near the beginning of the episode, she plays Rachel a song she wrote in the shower that morning:
--->I'm in the shower and I'm writing a song\\
Stop me if you've heard it\\
My skin is soapy and my hair is wet\\
And "[[ProductPlacement Tegrin]]" spelled backwards is "nirget"
** Just before Phoebe meets her replacement, we get another snippet:
--->'''Phoebe:''' ''[singing]'' ... with the double double double-jointed boy.
* In a brief crossover with ''Series/CarolineInTheCity'', Joey and Chandler meet Caroline when trying to find someone to show Ross's baby Ben to and she mistakes them for a gay couple who adopted a baby.[[note]] The evening this episode premiered (2 November 1995) was promoted as a crossover evening, with David Schwimmer making an extended guest appearance as Ross in ''The Single Guy'' on the episode "Neighbors", and Matthew Perry making a return crossover appearance as Chandler in the ''Caroline in the City'' episode "Caroline and the Folks".[[/note]]
-->'''Caroline''': You know, my brother and his boyfriend have been trying to adopt for three years. What agency did you two go through?
* Joey and Chandler accidentally leaving Ben on the bus and running after the bus.
* When they get to transit authorities, the Transit Authority guy assumes that one of them is the father. Their response?
-->'''Chandler''': That's me.\\
'''Joey''': I'm him.\\
'''Chandler''': Actually, uh, [''puts his arm around Joey''] we're both the father.
* When Joey and Chandler go into the room with the babies, they find two of them. However, one is wearing ducks and the other one is wearing clowns. Joey and Chandler flip a coin for the baby. The coin lands on heads, and then we get this:
-->'''Chandler''': We have to assign heads to something.\\
'''Joey''': Right. Ok, ok, uh, ducks is heads, because ducks have heads.\\
''({{Beat}})''\\
'''Chandler''': What kind of scary-ass clowns came to ''your'' birthday?
* At the end when Joey and Chandler come home with the baby:
-->'''Ross''': I'm here. How's my little boy? Want daddy to change your diaper? So, did you have fun with Uncle Joey and Uncle Chandler today?\\
'''Joey''': Oh, yeah, he rode the bus today.\\
'''Ross''': Ohhh. Big boy, riding the bus--Hey, I have a question. How come it says Property of Human Services on his butt?\\
'''Chandler''': You, you are gonna love this.\\
'''Ross''': Will you hold Ben for a sec? Come here. Come here.\\
'''Chandler''': Stay back, I've got kiwi. Run, Joey, run!

[[AC:208: TOW the List]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZGb7sC4mpk0 Chandler is so proud of his new laptop's capabilities]], when today it's laughably inadequate compared to a cellphone.
-->'''Chandler:''' [[TechnologyMarchesOn All right, check out this bad boy, 12 megabytes of RAM, 500 megabyte hard drive, built-in spreadsheet capabilities, and a modem that transmits at over 28,000 bps.]][[note]] Well, it was state of the art... in 1995.[[/note]]\\
'''Phoebe:''' Wow! What are you gonna use it for?\\
'''Chandler:''' Games and stuff.
* This episode includes another classic Phoebe song entitled "The Two of Them Kissed Last Night", a ''very'' thinly veiled fictionalisation of Ross' conundrum of having to choose between Rachel and Julie.
-->There was a girl, we'll call her Betty, and a guy, let's call him Neil\\
[[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial Now I can't stress this point too strongly, this story isn't real]]\\
Now our Neil must decide, who will be the girl that he casts aside\\
Will Betty be the one who he loves truly, or will it be the one who we'll call Ju--[[LastSecondWordSwap Loolie]]\\
He must decide, he must decide, even though I made him up, he must decide
* Monica's subplot in this episode sees her being hired to help market Mockolate, a synthetic chocolate substitute (that, judging from the reaction of both Monica and everyone who eats the food she creates with it, tastes absolutely awful - and, her employer implies, may carry other health risks), and includes a moment so funny it ended up having to be re-written and only appears in the gag reel. Monica makes a batch of Mockolate chip cookies for Rachel and Phoebe; Phoebe eats one and says, "This must be what evil tastes like." However, we know from the gag reel that the original line was "Jesus, Monica, these are the cookies they serve in ''hell!''" The line had to be changed because Lisa Kudrow simply '''could not say the line without laughing.'''
* Though it ends on a TearJerker with Rachel's reaction to what Ross thinks are her cons, the boys' panicked trying to keep the list away from her. Particularly Chandler's "reading" the "short story".
-->'''Chandler''': It was summer, and it was hot. Rachel was there. A ''lonely'' gray couch! "Oh, look," cried Ned. And then the kingdom was his forever, the end!

[[AC:210: TOW Russ]]
* Rachel starts dating Ross' doppelganger, a periodontist named Russ (played by David Schwimmer in a wig and false chin). Phoebe, Monica, Chandler, and Joey all notice the resemblance immediately, but Ross and Russ do not (Ross even indulges in a bit of HypocriticalHumor regarding Russ' vocal mannerisms), and neither does Rachel until Phoebe draws her attention to it, at which point she cannot unsee it and drops Russ like a sack of potatoes. In TheStinger, a dejected Russ runs into Chandler and Phoebe at Central Perk, and then Ross' ex-girlfriend Julie shows up, and it's LoveAtFirstSight, complete with romantic music swelling on the soundtrack... and looks of utter disbelief on Chandler and Phoebe's faces.
* This episode sees the beginning of the story arc in which Joey is cast in ''Series/DaysOfOurLives''. He stops by the office of his agent, Estelle, and tells her he got a callback (though he goes on to tell her that the casting director was flirting with him and implied that a session on the CastingCouch would guarantee him the part). Her initial reaction to the news of his callback is hilarious:
-->'''Estelle:''' Have you ever seen me ecstatic?\\
'''Joey:''' No.\\
'''Estelle:''' Well, here it is. ''[cracks a really small smile that looks more like she just smelled something unpleasant]''
* Two subplots are wrapped up in the last scene before the credits, as Monica discovers that Fun Bobby only seems fun because of his alcoholism, and going on the wagon makes him incredibly dull - prompting Monica to start drinking just to endure her time with him and making him concerned that she is becoming alcoholic herself, leading him to end their relationship. Cue Ross and Chandler paying out {{Side Bet}}s to Phoebe and Rachel, respectively. Then Joey arrives and announces that he couldn't go on the CastingCouch with the ''Series/DaysOfOurLives'' casting director after all - only to be offered a larger role as a result. Cue Phoebe and Rachel paying their money back to Ross and Chandler.

[[AC:211: TOW the Lesbian Wedding]]
* Monica is doing the catering for Carol and Susan's wedding, and has roped the others (except Rachel) into helping.
-->'''Monica''': Do you want me to cry? Is that what you want? Do you want to see me ''cry''?
-->'''Phoebe''': Sir, no, sir!
* Monica choosing to tell Rachel her lame cooking idea for the wedding at the most inappropriate moment possible (her mother has just told her she wants to divorce her father):
-->'''Monica:''' Alright, tell me if this is too cute: Lesbian wedding: [[IncrediblyLamePun chicken breast?]]
-->'''Rachel:''' [''horrified at her mother's news''] Oh, God... I think I'm gonna be sick... [''runs to the bathroom'']
-->'''Monica:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Why? It's not like I'm putting little nipples on them!]]

[[AC:212-13: The One After the Super Bowl]]
* Joey asks Chandler what they're going to do for dinner. Chandler responds that they could stay in and cook for themselves. After a beat both break out in laughter at the utter absurdity of that idea.
* Phoebe's four different songs in the first half. These were songs she wrote to sing to ''children''. Doubles as heartwarming when the children she was performing for track her down because they like that her songs speak the truth, rather than the mushy material they are used to.
-->Now Grandma's a person who everyone likes,\\
She bought you a train and a bright shiny bike.\\
Well, lately she hasn't been coming to dinner,\\
And the last time you saw her she looked so much thinner...\\
Now your mom and your dad said she moved to Peru,\\
But the truth is she died, and someday you will too.

-->There'll be times when you get older\\
When you'll want to sleep with people\\
Just to make them like you...\\
But don't!\\
Because that's another thing that you don't wanna do,\\
That's another thing that you don't wanna do.

-->Now the cow in the meadow goes "Moo."\\
Now the cow in the meadow goes "Moo."\\
Then the farmer hits him on the head and grinds him up\\
And that's how we get hamburgers!\\
''[spoken]'' Nowwww, chickens!

-->Sometimes men love women,\\
And sometimes men love men,\\
And then there are bisexuals,\\
But some just say they're kidding themselves...
* Monica and Rachel discover that they have both been dating Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme and get into a fight with each other. Phoebe breaks them apart by dragging them away by their ears. After Rachel agrees to break things off with him, we get the following reaction from Phoebe:
-->'''Phoebe:''' If we were in prison, you guys would be, like, my bitches.
* In [[https://youtu.be/TK4-5RzTws4 order to convince]] a LoonyFan that [[ItMakesSenseInContext Joey is Dr Drake Remoray's evil twin]], Rachel and Monica use some soap opera cliches and throw their drinks at him. Not to be outdone, Chandler yells about the toilet seat and throws his as well.
-->'''Rachel''': Yes, yes it is true. And I know this because, because he pretended to be Drake to, to sleep with me!\\
[''Throws water in Joey's face'']\\
'''Monica''': And then he told me he would run away with me, and he DIDN'T!\\
[''Throws water in Joey's face'']\\
'''Chandler''': [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking And you left the toilet seat up]], you ''bastard!''\\
[''Throws water in Joey's face'']

[[AC:214: TOW the Prom Video]]
* In the episode's Chandler/Joey subplot, Joey, now financially stable after being cast on ''Series/DaysOfOurLives'', buys Chandler a gaudy gold bracelet to thank him for financially supporting him while he was a starving actor. Unfortunately, Joey walks into Central Perk while Chandler is telling Phoebe how ridiculous he finds the bracelet, and Chandler spends the rest of the episode trying to atone.
** Chandler's attempts to apologize for making fun of the bracelet go downhill when he discovers that he lost it. He then lifts up the seat cushions, and Joey sees him.
--->'''Chandler''': I am here ''on my knees'', holding up these couch cushions as a symbol of my sorrow and regret, much like they did in Biblical times. Though you may haveth anger now...
** Chandler finally buys a replacement bracelet, only for Rachel to find the one he lost. When Joey sees the two bracelets, Chandler covers by saying he got him one as an apology.
--->'''Joey''': ''[excited]'' We're bracelet buddies!\\
'''Chandler''': ''[horrified]'' That's what they'll call us!
* The gang is watching an old video of "[=FatMonica=]"; present-day Monica protests, "Come on, the camera adds ten pounds!"... prompting Chandler to [[DeadpanSnarker snark]], "So how many cameras are actually ''on'' you?"
* Another classic David Schwimmer physical comedy moment: in the video, when everyone thinks Rachel's prom date is standing her up, Jack and Judy Geller suggest Ross go as her date. He is in such a mad dash to go upstairs to change into his father's tuxedo that he trips on the stairs.

[[AC:215: TOW Ross and Rachel... You Know]]
* This episode sees the debut of Chandler and Joey's leather recliners, which they refuse to leave for most of the rest of the episode. Phoebe tries to get them to quit watching the TV for the first time in hours, only to flip out and join them when they turn on ''Film/{{Xanadu}}'' of all things.
* Joey and Chandler watching (and acting like) [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJJN6P_Oxjg Beavis and Butt-Head]].

[[AC:220: TOW Film/OldYeller Dies]]
* Phoebe finally sees the end of films her family wouldn't let her watch.
-->'''Phoebe:''' I've never seen this part before. Hey, Travis, watcha doin' with that gun? Oh, no! No, no, Travis, put down the gun. No, no, no, no, he... he's your buddy, he's your Yeller! No, no, no, the end! The end!\\
''[BOOM]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' Okay, what kind of ''sick'' doggie snuff-movie is this?
* And apparently ''Film/OldYeller'' was not the only film that was switched off before it ended in the Buffay home:
-->'''Phoebe:''' What is happening to the world? I mean, because Film/{{ET}} leaves, and... and Film/{{Rocky}} loses, Film/{{Charlotte|sWeb}} dies...\\
'''Richard:''' Charlotte who?\\
'''Phoebe:''' With the web. The spider, she dies, she dies. She has babies and dies. It's like, you know: Hey, welcome home from the hospital. Thud.
* Monica offers Chandler and Joey leftover chicken and potatoes from her dinner with Richard.
-->'''Monica:''' All right, I've got a leg, three breasts, and a wing.\\
'''Chandler:''' Well how do you find clothes that fit?
* The gang try to convince Phoebe that ''Film/ItsAWonderfulLife'' lives up to its title:
-->'''Phoebe:''' Please, I almost fell for that with, uh, ''Film/PrideOfTheYankees''. I thought I was gonna see a film about yankee pride, and then, boom! The guy gets Lou Gehrig's disease.\\
'''Richard:''' Uh, the guy ''was'' Lou Gehrig. Didn't you kinda see it coming?
* Richard accepts Chandler and Joey's offer of a spare New York Knicks ticket. Monica is concerned, but Richard shrugs it off:
-->'''Richard:''' Don't worry, I like hanging out with those guys. It's fun for me. They're different than my other friends. They don't start sentences with, "You know who just died shoveling snow?"
* Monica wonders why it bothers her that Richard has gone to the basketball game with Chandler and Joey instead of spending the evening with her. Phoebe takes the long view:
-->'''Phoebe:''' Does it matter? You're ultimately just gonna die or get divorced or have to blow your pet's head off.
* Ross gets a bit carried away planning his future with Rachel:
-->'''Rachel:''' I don't know, you tell me! One minute I'm holding Ben like a football. The next thing I know, I've got two kids and I'm living in Scarsdale complaining about the taxes!\\
'''Ross:''' Well I'm sorry. I think about stuff. You know, I mean, you're at work, you're assembling bones, your mind wanders.
* Richard wipes the table with Joey and Chandler at foosball:
-->'''Richard:''' But... he gets it back, passes to the middle, lines it up, and... bam! Yes! Could that shot be any prettier?\\
'''Joey:''' Man, you are incredible!\\
'''Richard:''' Well, we had a table in college.\\
'''Chandler:''' Oh, really? I didn't know they had foosball in the 1800's.\\
'''Richard:''' Nice moustache, by the way. When puberty hits that thing's really gonna kick in.

[[AC:222: TOW the Two Parties]]
* Joey is quick on his feet when it looks like Rachel's parents are going to come in contact with one another:
-->'''Phoebe:''' Well, I guess we're gonna be '''going out into the hallway now...'''\\
'''Joey:''' Thanks for coming, Mrs. Green! ''[[KissOfDistraction [smooch]]]''
* Her reaction is even better...
-->'''Mrs Green:''' Well this is the ''best'' party I've ever been to in years...\\
'''Monica:''' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Thank you!]][[note]]Everyone had found Monica's party boring[[/note]]

[[AC:224: TOW Barry and Mindy's Wedding]]
* Chandler is pursuing online romance, and inevitably Phoebe observes that for all he knows, his "girlfriend" could "be like 90 years old, or have two heads, or... it could be a guy."[[note]] Ultimately, the identity of his online girlfriend is worse than any of those: it's Janice.[[/note]] Joey has a foolproof test for the last of those:
-->'''Joey:''' Just ask her how long she's gonna live. Women live longer than men.\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[looks at Joey in disbelief]'' How do you not fall down more?
* Joey is auditioning for a film in which he has to kiss another man, so he tries putting the moves on every other male character in the episode. Finally, in TheStinger, Ross plants a big kiss on Joey... who tells him that his audition was that morning and he didn't get the part, but that Rachel is a very lucky girl...
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Season 3]]
[[AC:301: TOW the Princess Leia Fantasy]]
* Joey watches ''Series/WheelOfFortune'':
-->[''the first M of "Mount Rushmore" is missing'']\\
'''Joey:''' This guy is so stupid. [[WhatAnIdiot IT'S COUNT RUSHMORE!]]\\
'''Chandler:''' [[SarcasmMode Y'know, you should really go on this show!]]\\
[''later in the scene, after an argument with Chandler over Joey's hatred of Janice'']\\
'''Chandler:''' Oh, and by the way, there IS no Count Rushmore!!\\
'''Joey:''' Yeah? [[InsaneTrollLogic Then who's the guy that painted the faces on the mountain?]]\\
[''Chandler gives Joey a look of pure, concerned bewilderment before he leaves'']
* Ross gets embarrassed that Rachel tells Monica and Phoebe that he secretly wants her to role-play as [[Franchise/StarWars Princess Leia]] in her (in)famous gold bikini from ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'' during sex. After Rachel tells him that sharing is what girls do, he tries it with Chandler, who ends up sharing...[[{{Squick}} a bit too much.]]
-->'''Chandler:''' Okay, you know, you know when you're in bed, with a woman.\\
'''Ross:''' Hmm.\\
'''Chandler:''' And, ah, you know, you're fooling around with her. And you get all these like, mental images in your brain, you know, like Elle [=MacPherson=], or that girl at the Xerox place....\\
'''Ross:''' [[{{Foreshadowing}} With the belly-button ring? Oh, muhawa!]]\\
'''Chandler:''' I know! And then all of the sudden your ''mom'' pops into your head. And you're like: "Mom?! Get outta here!" You know, but of course, like, after that you can't ''possibly'' think of anything else, and you can't, you know, ''stop'' what you're doing! [[ParentalIncest So it's kinda like, you're, y'know.]] [[{{Squick}} Y'know...]]\\
[''Ross just stares at him in horror''] \\
'''Chandler:''' You don't know!\\
'''Ross:''' [''nauseated''] Your mom...? You're telling-- you're telling me, abou-- about your mom, what is ''the matter with you''?!\\
'''Chandler:''' ''YOU'' SAID--\\
'''Ross:''' I said "''share''", not "'''''scare'''''"! Got sit over there.\\
[''Chandler moves to another chair away from Ross'']
* This becomes a BrickJoke at the end of the episode when Rachel has actually bought a Slave Leia costume and is about to play out Ross's fantasy -- when she notices that he has a really weird look on his face. And for added hilarity if you're a ''Star Wars'' fan, Rachel actually DID get the hair wrong.[[note]]She is wearing Leia's iconic double "cinnamon roll" buns that only appear in ''Film/ANewHope'', while during that particular scene in ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi'', her hair looks like [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-VJsfxOhpynM/TZFHBHDEV7I/AAAAAAAAAMI/hECjSzOqiQ0/s1600/leia-princess-leia-organa-solo-skywalker-9301455-893-1400.jpg this.]][[/note]]
-->'''Rachel:''' Honey, what is it? Did I get it wrong, did I get the hair wrong? Or what? Did you just picture it differently?\\
'''Ross:''' No, it's not you, it's...\\
[''cut to Ross's mom stood where Rachel is wearing the exact same clothes and wig'']\\
'''Judy Geller as Rachel:''' Well, what is it? C'mon, sweetie, you're kind of, like, freaking me out here.\\
'''Ross:''' [''nauseated''] I hate Chandler. The bastard ruined my life.

[[AC:302: TOW No-One's Ready]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q--6wtCPHg8 "LOOK AT ME, I'M CHANDLER! Could I BE wearing any more clothes?!"]]
* Pretty much anything involving Joey, Chandler, and the chair.
-->'''Chandler''': All right, fine, I'm going, but when I get back it's CHAIR CITY, and I'm the guy who's....s-sitting in a CHAIR!
* When they accidentally spill hummus on Phoebe's dress, the best she can sputter out in rage is "Oh my God, you...ROTTEN BOYS!"
* When Monica hacks into Richard's answering machine to erase the past messages and leaves one explaining what happened ([[TooMuchInformation even blaming her erratic behaviour on her]] [[MenstrualMenace period]]), she accidentally saves it as ''the out-going message''. Cue her calling Richard's machine and hearing her message play. Monica's BigNo (twice!) sells it.
-->'''Monica:''' Maybe we could call the phone company. Maybe ''they'' could change the message. Maybe they can change his number!\\
'''Phoebe:''' Yeah, after this, I think he'll be doing that himself.

[[AC:305: TOW Frank Jr.]]
* Joey innocently points out to Monica that her bathroom floor is "old and dingy", leading to the following exchange. The best part is Monica's completely serious reaction to the different colour of the floor under the hamper:
-->'''Monica:''' ''[seeing Joey's tight jeans]'' Hey! Where ya' headed in those pants, 1982?\\
'''Joey:''' ''[helping himself to a beer from the fridge]'' Oh, Monica, listen, I saw down at the hardware store they got those designer tiles on sale, if you ever wanna redo your bathroom floor.\\
'''Monica:''' What's wrong with my bathroom floor?\\
'''Joey:''' Nothing, it's just... old and dingy, that's all.\\
'''Monica:''' ''[smiles]'' I highly doubt that.\\
'''Joey:''' ''[chuckles]'' Oh, yeah? ''[heads for the bathroom]'' If you, uh... move your hamper, you can see the colour the tile used to be. ''[pulls the laundry hamper away from the wall; Monica gasps in horror]'' Yeah.\\
'''Monica:''' I can't live like this! What are we gonna do? What are we gonna do?\\
'''Joey:''' Relax, relax! Here, hold this. ''[hands her his beer bottle]'' This old stuff comes right up, I'll show you. ''[bends down and scrapes at the floor just in front of the door with a gouge]''\\
'''Monica:''' ''[her eyes drawn to Joey's tight jeans again]'' Little more than I wanted to see.\\
'''Joey:''' ''[gouges out a chunk of tile]'' Aw! Look at that! Every inch of this is glued down! It'd take forever to pry this up! ''[replaces the gouge in his tool belt and takes his beer back]'' You should, uh, you should just leave it. ''[starts to leave]''\\
'''Monica:''' ''[grabs Joey and pulls him back]'' I ''can't'' leave it! You gouged a hole in my dingy floor!\\
'''Joey:''' ''[picks up the toilet brush holder from next to the sink and puts it over the gouge - right in the middle of the doorway - then stands back proudly]'' Eh? There you go!\\
'''Monica:''' Aw. That's nice! You know, we can put it back there after [[AssShove the surgeons remove it from your colon!]]

[[AC:306: TOW the Flashback]]
* As the flashback begins, we learn that Ugly Naked Guy didn't always match the first part of his moniker:
-->'''Phoebe:''' Cute Naked Guy is really starting to put on weight.
* Monica seeing Joey naked:
-->'''Monica:''' Here's your glass of penis!
* Ross and Phoebe suddenly making out on a pool table. Ross bangs his head on a lamp and gets a foot stuck in one of the table's holes while on top of Phoebe.
-->'''Ross:''' I can't get it out.\\
'''Phoebe:''' That's not what a girl wants to hear.

[[AC:308: TOW the Giant Poking Device]]
* In one subplot, Joey sees Janice, who is currently in a relationship with Chandler, kissing her ex-husband, Gary AKA the Mattress King.
** The first person Joey tells is Monica, and the two of them enter Central Perk to find Ross, Rachel, and Phoebe around the table:
--->'''Joey:''' Hey, i-is Chandler here?\\
'''Ross:''' ''[pats himself down as though looking for Chandler in his pockets]'' ... no, no he's not!
** Joey decides not to tell Chandler out of fear at how he will react - until he and Chandler pass a jeweller's and Chandler decides to go in to buy Janice a birthday present. Joey's attempts to talk him out of it don't go well:
--->'''Chandler:''' ''[as he and Joey pass the jeweller's window]'' Hey, hold on a sec, hold on a sec. ''[points at a necklace]'' Do you think these pearls are nice?\\
'''Joey:''' I'd really prefer a mountain bike.\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[smiles thinly]'' Janice's birthday is coming up, I wanna get her something special. ''[Joey visibly wrestles with whether to tell Chandler the truth]'' Come in here with me.\\
'''Joey:''' Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait, whoa. You, uh... you wanna get her something special. Get her flowers, get her candy - get her gum. Girls love gum!\\
'''Chandler:''' That's a good idea. "Dear Janice: Have a Hubba Bubba birthday!" ''[Joey gestures in agreement]'' I would like to get her something ''serious''.\\
'''Joey:''' Ohhh, you want something ''serious''. You know what you should do? You should get her one of those, um... barium enemas! Those are ''dead'' serious!\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[absorbs this]'' All right. Look, I'm gonna go in there, and you don't buy me anything ''ever!''
* In another subplot, Monica and Rachel are left in charge of looking after Ross' son, Ben.
** The girls try to get Ben to laugh by swinging him up and down, only to bump his head against a beam and causes a bumped bruise to appear:
--->'''Rachel''': We're not OK. Oh, god. There's a lump on his head.\\
'''Monica''': Well push it in! PUSH IT IN!\\
'''Rachel''': I cannot push it in!
** They decide to cover up his bump with a hat. Rachel says "I'll get Rainy Day Bear" and Monica snarks "Because ''he'll'' know what to do?" - Rachel wants the hat on the bear's head. When Monica tries to pull the hat off, she ends up ripping the bear's entire head off. Rachel then wails "it's like a blood bath in here today!"
** That episode becomes even funnier in hindsight, since Ben starts saying "Monica Bang," basically getting ready to squeal on Monica. Looking back, it almost sounds like he's saying "Monica '''Bing'''."
** Rachel tries to defuse the situation by hitting her head against the beam repeatedly while saying "Rachel Bang", but gives up after the pain gets to be too much.
--->'''Rachel:''' Y'know, if it's not a headboard, it's just not worth it.
** A scene later on has Ross discover through Rachel about his son's injury and decides to mess with Monica by telling her that Ben is suddenly no good at the alphabet anymore and he is also walking funny. This causes Monica to break down and shout "OH GOD I WRECKED YOUR BABY!" as she runs in the bedroom to check on Ben. Rachel's snarky, "I hope it's still funny when you're in ''hell''" is funny enough, but then Monica comes back a moment later and chases Ross around for being such a jerk. Cue LaserGuidedKarma on Ross when he smacks his head into the same beam Ben hit his head on.
** And also, that beam is eventually gone in later episodes. [[FridgeBrilliance Maybe they had it removed because it was such a hazard?]]
* And in the subplot which gives the episode its name, Phoebe is resisting going to the dentist with a toothache because the last few times she went to the dentist, someone she knew died while she was in the chair. She finally caves and, after returning from the dentist, calls everyone she knows (Chandler doesn't pick up at first as he is confronting Janice over two-timing him, causing a panicked Phoebe to charge across from Monica and Rachel's apartment) and confirms they're all still alive... until Joey notices Ugly Naked Guy hasn't moved since that morning. Since he and Chandler have pairs of chopsticks from the many times they've ordered Chinese food, Joey leads the others in fashioning a giant poking device, which they stick through Monica and Rachel's window like thread through a needle and then through Ugly Naked Guy's window. Fortunately for Phoebe's future dental health, he's very much alive - and not happy about having his nap interrupted:
-->'''Rachel:''' Hey-hey, now he's showing us ''his'' poking device.\\
'''Joey:''' Hey, that's never gonna make it all the way over here, buddy!

[[AC:309: TOW the Football]]
* The story of the Geller Cup.
-->'''Ross''': So Mom forbade us to play and Dad threw the Geller Cup into the lake.\\
'''Chandler''': And the curse was lifted?
* When Monica reveals she fetched the cup from the lake:
-->'''Chandler''': Is everybody else seeing a troll doll nailed to a two by four?\\
'''Everyone Else''': Yeah.\\
'''Chandler:''' Okay, good.
* And also:
-->'''Ross''': ''[To Monica]'' Cheater, cheater, compulsive eater!\\
''[Everyone gasps. Ross crossed a line]''\\
'''Phoebe''': Oh, my GOD!
* Phoebe's method of distracting Chandler: Lifting up her shirt so he'd stop to look at her boobs. It works.

[[AC:311: TOW Chandler Can't Remember Which Sister]]
* Chandler's a kisser when he's drunk.
-->'''Chandler''': Look, when Iíve been drinking, sometimes I tend to get overly friendly, and Iím sorry.
-->'''Monica''': That's okay.
-->'''Rachel''': That's all right.
-->'''Ross''': [[HoYay That's okay]].

[[AC:312: TOW All the Jealousy]]
* Chandler, Joey and Ross talking about Rachel and Mark.
-->'''Chandler''': Then she'll be like "I should be with him 'cause he understands me".
-->'''Joey''': And before you know it, she's with him. And you'll be all, "Oh, man!" And he'll be all, "Yes!" And us, we'll be like "Oh, dude!" And pretty soon you'll be like, "Hi," and, "Well, I can't go. Rachel and Mark might be there." And we'll be like, "Man, get over it, it's been four years!"
-->'''Chandler''': He paints quite a picture, doesn't he?

[[AC:313: TOW Monica and Richard are Just Friends]]
* The entire subplot about Phoebe's new boyfriend Robert, who wears short shorts in the middle of winter... with nothing underneath.
** Chandler is the first to get an unwilling and unwitting glimpse of "little Robert":
--->''[Ross and Chandler are on the sofa at Central Perk as Phoebe enters with Robert, both of them carrying rollerblades]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' Um - Chandler, Ross, this is Robert.\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[standing and shaking Robert's hand]'' Hey.\\
'''Ross:''' ''[doing likewise]'' Oh, hey.\\
'''Phoebe:''' You have lipstick right here. ''[indicates her cheek]''\\
'''Robert:''' Oh! ''[wipes off his (other) cheek]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[off Chandler and Ross' concerned looks]'' That's okay, it's mine, we just kissed. ''[Chandler and Ross nod; Ross sits down again]''\\
'''Chandler:''' So isn't it a bit cold out for shorts? ''[sits down again]''\\
'''Robert:''' Well... ''[sits on the arm of Phoebe's chair]'' I'm from California.\\
'''Chandler:''' ... right, right, sometimes you guys just burst into flame.\\
''[Robert puts one foot up on the table and begins talking to Phoebe, affording Chandler an unwanted glimpse up his shorts. Chandler gets a horrified look on his face; eventually, he thinks through enough of the shock to stand up]''\\
'''Chandler:''' I'm up!... ''[clears throat]'' I'm up! I've... gotten up... now! Anybody, uh, want anything?\\
'''Phoebe:''' I'll have coffee!\\
'''Robert:''' Yeah, me too!\\
'''Ross:''' Yeah, make that three.\\
'''Chandler:''' Okay! Ross, why don't you come with me?\\
'''Ross:''' ''[confused]'' Okay... ''[joins Chandler at the counter]'' Wha... ''[laughs]'' What is the matter with you? What's going on?\\
'''Chandler:''' Robert's coming out.\\
'''Ross:''' What- what do you mean, he- what, is he gay?\\
'''Chandler:''' No, he- ''[sighs, spends a few moments searching for the right words]'' He's coming out of his shorts.\\
'''Ross:''' ... ''what!?''\\
'''Chandler:''' ''The man is showing brain.''\\
'''Ross:''' Are you sure? ''[Chandler grimaces and nods]'' Hold on... ''[walks back to Phoebe and Robert, clears his throat]'' I'm sorry, you guys, that was a coffee and a...\\
'''Robert:''' Coffee.\\
'''Ross:''' Okay.\\
'''Robert:''' We could write it down for you!\\
'''Ross:''' ''[leaning over the back of the sofa]'' No! No, that won't be, uh... won't be necessa... ''[sees what Chandler saw and dissolves into nervous laughter, then rejoins Chandler at the counter]''\\
'''Chandler:''' Well?\\
'''Ross:''' ''[still in shock]'' Yeah! Yeah. Yeah.\\
'''Chandler:''' What do we do? What do we do?\\
'''Ross:''' I suppose we just... try to... not look directly at it.\\
'''Chandler:''' ... like an eclipse.
** Later, it's Joey's turn to be unknowingly flashed by Robert...
--->''[Joey and Chandler are on the sofa at Central Perk while Ross is at a nearby table; Phoebe and Robert enter with basketball gear]''\\
'''Phoebe, Robert:''' Hey.\\
'''Ross:''' Hey, how'd the, uh, basketball go?\\
'''Phoebe:''' Oh! Okay, I learned how to shoot a layup, a foul shot, and a 23-pointer. ''[tosses the basketball to Chandler]''\\
'''Chandler:''' You mean a three-pointer?\\
'''Phoebe:''' Oh. I get more because I'm dainty! ''[Robert smiles and shrugs]''\\
'''Robert:''' So, um, is there a phone here, I can check my messages?\\
'''Phoebe:''' Yeah, in the back. Do you want a quarter? ''[begins digging in her pockets]''\\
'''Robert:''' Oh, no, thanks, I always carry one in my sock. ''[puts his foot up on the arm of the sofa, right in Chandler's line of sight; Chandler tries to look away while Ross studies his book very closely, and eventually Chandler starts leaning against Joey, who has just re-started his attempt at reading ''Literature/LittleWomen'']''\\
'''Joey:''' What are you doing!? ''[shoves Chandler to the other end of the sofa]'' Get back on your side of the- ''[sees what Chandler was trying to avoid looking at]'' HELLOOO! ''[exchanges a shocked look with Ross, then tries to cover his outburst by extending his hand]'' Hi. I'm Joey. We haven't met.\\
'''Robert:''' ''[shakes Joey's hand]'' Hi, good to meet you. Robert. ''[goes back to the payphone as Joey, Chandler, and Ross start laughing]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[returning with a cup of coffee]'' What? What? You guys, what is going on? ''[sits on the sofa between Joey and Chandler]'' Do you not like Robert? ''[Joey, Chandler, and Ross just laugh harder]'' Why are you laughing!?\\
'''Ross:''' Calm down, there's no reason to get testy. ''[Joey and Chandler roar with laughter]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' You guys, come on!\\
'''Chandler:''' We're sorry. We're sorry. It just seems that Robert isn't as ''concealed''... in the shorts area... as, uh, one may have hoped.\\
'''Phoebe:''' What do you mean?\\
'''Robert:''' ''[returns from the payphone and sits in the armchair]'' Hey.\\
'''Phoebe:''' Hey.\\
'''Joey:''' Uh, Robert! Could you, uh... uh, pass me those cookies?\\
'''Robert:''' Sure! ''[puts one foot up on the table; now it's Phoebe's turn to see up his shorts. She gasps in horror]''
** Phoebe's attempt to persuade Robert to wear stretch pants instead of shorts fails (he claims they make him feel too exposed), and ends with him inadvertently flashing Rachel as well after bending down to pick up his keys. She can't find a tactful way to tell him why he is starting to make her uncomfortable - fortunately, Gunther isn't as concerned about tact:
--->''[Phoebe joins Chandler on the sofa at Central Perk; Ross is in the armchair]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' Robert will be here any second, so... could one of you just tell him? ''[Ross groans in disgust]'' Please! Right now, every time I see him, it's like, "Is it on the loose? Is it watching me?" ''[Ross and Chandler make "Absolutely not" gestures]''\\
'''Chandler:''' We can't tell him! You can't go up to a guy you barely know and talk about his... stuff.\\
'''Ross:''' He's right, even if it's to say something complimentary. ''[slowly gets a "What did I just say!?" look on his face]''\\
'''Robert:''' ''[entering with a gym bag; sits on the opposite armchair to Ross]'' Hey!\\
'''Phoebe:''' Hey.\\
'''Robert:''' So, you ready for the gym? They've got this new rock climbing wall - we can spot each other!\\
'''Phoebe:''' ... yeah, I can spot you from here.\\
'''Robert:''' ... what?\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[hesitantly]'' Okay, listen, Robert...\\
'''Ross:''' ''[to Chandler]'' Hey, don't we have to...? ''[gets up from his chair]''\\
'''Chandler:''' Yeah, we got- yeah. Mm-''mm''. ''[he and Ross leave together]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' Um... ''[scoots along the sofa, and sighs]'' I think you're really, really great-\\
'''Robert:''' ''[thinking he knows where this is going]'' Ohh, God! Here we go ''again''... why does this keep ''happening'' to me? ''[puts one of his feet on the table]'' Is it something I'm putting out there? ''[Phoebe rolls her eyes and tries to avoid eye contact with Robert for fear of seeing "little Robert"]'' Is this my fault? Or am I just nuts?\\
'''Phoebe:''' I - I - I - I - I don't know - I don't know what to say...\\
'''Gunther:''' ''[bends over to clear the table and sees up Robert's shorts]'' Hey buddy? This is a family place. Put the mouse back in the house.\\
''[Robert looks down and finally gets it; he puts his foot back on the floor and looks thoroughly embarrassed]''

[[AC:319: TOW the Tiny T-shirt]]
* Chandler and Phoebe's conversation about ComicBook/SpiderMan's name. Even funnier when you see Monica laughing to herself at this conversation:
-->'''Phoebe:''' Hey, why isn't it Spiderman? Y'know, like Goldman, Silverman?
-->'''Chandler:''' [''confused''] Because it- it's not his last name.
-->'''Phoebe:''' It isn't?
-->'''Chandler:''' No, it's not like...Phil Spiderman! He's a Spider...Man! Y'know, like, uh, like Goldman is a last name, but there's no ''gold man''!
-->'''Phoebe:''' Oh okay... There should BE a Gold Man!

[[AC:321: TOW a Chick and a Duck]]
* Ross isn't the only Geller who falls for ThatCameOutWrong:
-->'''Monica:''' I've been wanting to run my own kitchen since I got my first Easy Bake Oven and opened Easy Monica's Bakery. ''[Rachel just stares at her waiting if she just heard what she said]''

[[AC:322: TOW the Screamer]]
* Joey appearing in what seemed to be a serious play, until he said "Now, I'm gonna get on this spaceship..." The best part of that was the buildup. Scenes from the play appeared in many episodes throughout the season, and it was made out to be one of those gritty off-off-Broadway productions. Then, after months, the spaceship landed.

[[AC:323: TOW Ross' Thing]]
* The A plot involves Ross discovering a strange growth on the small of his back. Having Rachel walk in on him when he is showing it to Chandler and Joey is embarrassing enough for him, but then he seeks medical advice, and the doctor who examines him has never seen anything like his growth, and ends up calling in a crowd of at least fifteen fellow doctors to look at it.
-->'''Ross:''' ''[lying face down on the examining table with a cloth over his backside as the huge crowd of doctors gathers round him]'' You know, I have dinner plans!

[[AC:324: TOW the Ultimate Fighting Championship]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8QKYHX5g6w Robin Williams and Billy Crystal]] appear in the cold open. They weren't scripted to appear, but happened to be nearby at the time of filming, so the producers asked them to step in. The result was an [[ThrowItIn ad-libbed]] performance that was utterly hilarious, with Thomas (Robin) telling Tim (Billy) that he thinks his wife is sleeping with her gynaecologist, as "he's got access", and wondering if maybe his wound (which is still "oozing") is to blame, only for Tim to confess that he's the one sleeping with Thomas' wife ("So you're the gynaecologist?" Joey asks), leading to Thomas storming out, Tim running after him begging forgiveness, and Monica completely forgetting the news she had for the other five.

[[AC:401: TOW the Jellyfish]]
* Chandler, Joey and Monica [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yk4d8IBw7SQ explaining what happened to them at the beach]] after Monica was stung by a jellyfish and remembered one folk remedy for the sting:
-->'''Ross:''' Eeww! You peed on yourself?!\\
'''Phoebe & Rachel:''' Eeww!\\
'''Monica:''' You can't say that! You don't ''know!'' I thought I was going to pass out from the pain. Anyway, I tried, but I couldn't...bend that way. So... ''(looks over at Joey)''\\
'''Ross, Phoebe & Rachel:''' ''({{beat}}, then they all turn to Joey)'' ''Eeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwww!''
* And then Joey's declaration of friendship: "If I had to, I'd pee on any one of you!"
* Ross and Rachel breaking up again.
-->'''Rachel''': By the way, it's NOT that common, it DOESN'T happen to every guy and it IS a big deal!\\
'''Chandler''': ''I knew it!''

[[AC:402: TOW the Cat]]
* After ripping his suits on the entertainment unit once too often, Chandler forces Joey to advertise it for sale. However, as Phoebe wraps up a set at Central Perk (a funny moment on its own), Ross reads the advertisement and suspects a bit of embellishment has taken place:
-->'''Phoebe:''' ... DUMB, DRUNKEN BITCH! ''[angrily strums a few last chords on her guitar; the customers applaud politely, and her anger vanishes]'' Thank you! Thanks! ''[joins the other five around the table]''\\
'''Ross:''' ''[to Chandler and Joey]'' Hey, here's a question. Where'd you guys get the "finest oak east of the Mississippi"?\\
'''Chandler:''' Nuh-uh. First, you tell us where you got the prettiest lace in all the land.
* Joey and Chandler being robbed blind because Joey was foolish enough to let himself be locked in the same cabinet in which Chandler trapped him when the unit was originally built in "TOW Frank Jr.". Chandler does not take it well when Joey reveals that getting into the cabinet was his own decision:
-->''[Chandler enters the apartment and throws his keys where he thinks the table is; when he hears them fall to the floor, he knows something is wrong, and looks up to see the apartment empty of everything except the entertainment unit and the ceramic dog. Even the fridge and bathroom have been emptied, and the thief has written "THANKS FOR ALL YOUR STUFF!" on the Magna Doodle]''\\
'''Chandler:''' OH MY GOD!\\
'''Joey:''' What?\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[hurries over to the entertainment unit]'' Are you all right?\\
'''Joey:''' Yeah...\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[removes the hockey stick the thief put through the handles and opens the door]'' What happened??\\
'''Joey:''' ''[emerging from the cupboard]'' Aw, man! He promised he wouldn't take the chairs!\\
'''Chandler:''' ''What the hell happened!?'' How were you locked in there? Where the hell's all of our stuff?!\\
'''Joey:''' Well, this guy came by to look at the unit, and- and he said he didn't think it was big enough to fit a grown man! ''[shrugs]''\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[dumbfounded]'' So- you got in voluntarily!?\\
'''Joey:''' I was ''trying'' to make a sale! Aw, man, if I ever run into that guy again, you know what I'm gonna do?\\
'''Chandler:''' BEND OVER?!
* Later, when Rachel and Phoebe are listing all the boys' stolen property:
-->'''Rachel:''' Wow, they really got you guys! Your TV, the chairs...\\
'''Phoebe:''' Yeah. Your microwave, your stereo...\\
'''Joey''' ''[playing with a deck of cards]'' Aw man, he took the five of spades! ''[gets to the bottom of the deck; perks up]'' Oh, no no, here it is. ''[Chandler lies back in despair]''\\
'''Monica:''' ''[entering]'' Oh my God, what happened?\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[hops to his feet]'' Oh. Um, Joey was born, and then 28 years later... I WAS ROBBED!\\
''[...]''\\
'''Ross:''' ''[entering]'' Hey. So, what'd the insurance company say?\\
'''Chandler:''' Oh. They said, uh, "You don't have insurance here, so stop calling us."

[[AC:403: TOW the Cuffs]]
* Chandler handcuffed in Rachel's boss' office in his underwear. Then getting revenge by leaving her handcuffed in her underwear.

[[AC:407: TOW Chandler Crosses The Line]]
* Ross debuts "the Sound" he spent most of his high school and college years refining... which involves programming a keyboard to play a cacophonous mishmash of sound effects, including animal noises, breaking glass, sirens, and laser noises, over a standard 12-bar blues riff. (He has at least one other disk of sound effects that includes helicopter noises.) Rachel, Monica, and Chandler are aghast; Phoebe is enraptured and gets Ross a spot performing at Central Perk.
* Joey's response to Chandler admitting he was "totally over the line" in becoming the other man in Joey's relationship with Kathy.
-->'''Joey:''' Over the line? You... you... you're so far past the line that you can't even see the line! The line is a ''dot'' to you!

[[AC:408: TOW Chandler in a Box]]
* While Chandler spends Thanksgiving shut up in a giant box as punishment from Joey for seeing Kathy behind his back, it's revealed that Monica is dating the son of her old fling, Richard. She responds to the gang's mockery with a ContinuityCavalcade:
-->'''Ross:''' ...if things ever work out with you and Richard's son, you can tell your kids that ''you slept with their grandfather!''\\
''[{{Beat}}]''\\
'''Monica:''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RU5k3OcRDSo Fine, judge all you want to but...]] ''[points to Ross]'' Married a lesbian! ''[at Rachel]'' Left a man at the altar! ''[at Phoebe]'' Fell in love with a gay ice dancer! ''[Joey]'' Threw a girl's wooden leg into a fire! ''[at Chandler]'' Lives in a BOX!

[[AC:410: TOW the Girl from Poughkeepsie]]
* Chandler sets Rachel up with one of his coworkers but makes the mistake of telling him that Rachel just wants a fling (which she has told him is the case). This causes Rachel to chew him out when she learns of it, because by then she's started to like the guy enough that she might want more than that. Chandler's attempts to fix the situation are neither successful nor well-received:
-->'''Rachel:''' [[CommitmentIssues Patrick just ended things with me.]] Did you or did you not tell him I was looking for a serious relationship?
-->'''Chandler:''' (''proudly'') I did! I absolutely did!
-->'''Rachel:''' You ''idiot!''
-->'''Chandler:''' [[SelfDeprecation I'm sure you're right,]] but why?!

[[AC:411: TOW Phoebe's Uterus]]
* Monica's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bsl19-J_H4s sex lesson]]. Not to mention the BrickJoke at the end when Kathy runs into the kitchen and starts dramatically thanking Monica.
* Ross and Joey ending the segregation in the museum but everyone starts saying TooMuchInformation about themselves.
-->'''Tour Guide:''' I'm Ted, I just moved here a month ago, and New York really scares me.\\
'''Scientist:''' I'm Andrew, and I didn't pay for this pear!\\
'''Tour Guide:''' I'm Rhonda, and these ''[[GagBoobs [indicates her breasts]]]'' aren't real!\\
'''Scientist:''' I'm Scott. [...] I have to flip the light switch on and off 17 times or my family will die!

[[AC:412: TOW the Embryos]]
* The entire [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oENQjvY96dM "Who Knows More About Whom?" game]] pitting Chandler and Joey against Monica and Rachel, with Ross as questionmaster.
** The main game involves each team answering ten questions from four categories: Fears and Pet Peeves, Ancient History, Literature, and It's All Relative. The game gets off to an inauspicious start with the coin toss:
--->'''Ross:''' ''[clears the coffee table]'' Now. The coin toss, to see who goes first. ''[he tosses the coin up in the air... and all four players simply watch it land, none of them saying a word. Ross looks put upon as he picks up the coin]'' Okay... somebody call it this time!
** The first round reveals that Monica detests animals dressed as people while Chandler is terrified of the way ''Theatre/{{Riverdance}}'' and ''Film/{{Lord of the Dance|1997}}'' star Michael Flatley's legs flail about as though independent of his body. In the second round, the guys choose It's All Relative:
--->'''Ross:''' ''[reading question]'' Monica and I had a grandmother who died. You both went to her funeral.[[note]] A CallBack to "TOW Nana Dies Twice" from the first season.[[/note]] Name that grandmother!\\
'''Joey:''' ''[to Chandler]'' Nana?\\
'''Chandler:''' She has a real name!\\
'''Joey:''' ''[thinks, then points excitedly at Ross]'' Althea!\\
'''Chandler:''' ''Althea!?'' What are you doing?!\\
'''Joey:''' I took a shot!\\
'''Chandler:''' You're shooting with Althea!?\\
'''Ross:''' Althea is correct!\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[in the same outraged tone of voice]'' Nice shooting!\\
''[Ross updates the score, then points at Monica and Rachel]''\\
'''Rachel:''' [[NoIndoorVoice WE'LL TAKE LITERATURE!]]\\
'''Ross:''' ''[reading question]'' Every week, the ''TV Guide'' comes to Chandler and Joey's apartment. What name appears on the address label?\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[stands up, excited]'' Oh! Chandler gets it! It's "Chandler Bing"!\\
'''Monica:''' ''[stands up, angry]'' NO!\\
'''Ross:''' I'm afraid the ''TV Guide'' comes to "Chnandler Bong". ''[Joey and Chandler grin]''\\
'''Monica:''' I ''knew'' that! Rachel! Use your head! ''[she and Rachel sit down again]''\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[triumphantly]'' Actually, it's "''Miss'' Chnandler Bong".
** Surprisingly, by the tenth question, it's Rachel rather than Monica who is a bundle of energy:
--->'''Ross:''' ''[updates the scoreboard]'' All right. The score is 9 to 8 in favour of the guys. Ladies, if you miss this, the game is theirs. Pick your category.\\
'''Rachel: ITSALLRELATIVE!''' ''[even Monica is shocked]''\\
'''Ross:''' ''[grimaces]'' You don't have to shout ''everything''.\\
'''Rachel:''' I'M SORRY!
** As Monica correctly (and "unfortunately", according to Chandler) identifies the name of Chandler's dad's all-male Vegas burlesque as "Viva Las Gay-gas", the score finishes 9-9. Luckily, Ross reveals that he prepared a tiebreaker: "The ''lightning round!''" The teams decide to up the stakes: if Monica and Rachel win, Chandler and Joey have to get rid of the chicken and the duck. If Chandler and Joey win, they swap apartments with Monica and Rachel. Chandler and Joey go first:
--->'''Ross:''' The lightning round begins ''[to Chandler, who is jumping up and down in anticipation]'' stop it... NOW. ''[starts timer]'' What was Monica's nickname when she was a field hockey goalie?\\
'''Joey:''' Big fat goalie! ''[points to Monica]''\\
'''Ross:''' Correct! ''[Monica looks sad; Rachel puts her arm around her]'' Rachel claims ''this'' is her favourite movie.\\
'''Chandler:''' ''Literature/DangerousLiaisons''.\\
'''Ross:''' Correct. Her ''actual'' favourite movie is...\\
'''Joey:''' ''Film/WeekendAtBernies''. ''[grins and points at Rachel, who looks embarrassed]''\\
'''Ross:''' Correct. In what part of her body did Monica get a pencil stuck at age 14? ''[Chandler gets an excited look and whispers in Ross' ear; Ross grimaces in disgust]'' EW, NO! ''[Monica glares at Chandler]'' Her EAR! ''[Chandler and Joey shrug]'' All right, Monica categorises her towels. How many categories are there?\\
'''Joey:''' Everyday use...\\
'''Chandler:''' Fancy...\\
'''Joey:''' Guest...\\
'''Chandler:''' [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs Fancy guest...]]\\
'''Ross:''' Two seconds.\\
'''Joey:''' ''[panics]'' Uh, eleven!?\\
'''Ross:''' ''[stops timer]'' Eleven. Unbelievable. Eleven is correct!\\
'''Joey, Chandler:''' YES!
** And, after exchanging the series' signature PG-rated version of FlippingTheBird with each other, the two teams swap places, with Monica and Rachel needing four correct answers to tie, five correct answers to win. They get off to a promising start, but come unstuck on what seems like a simple question...
--->'''Ross:''' The lightning round begins... ''[starts timer]'' NOW. What is Joey's favourite food?\\
'''Monica:''' Sandwiches!\\
'''Ross:''' Correct. Chandler was how old when he first touched a girl's breast?\\
'''Rachel:''' 14?\\
'''Ross:''' No, 19.\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[sarcastically]'' Thanks man! ''[Joey looks at him as if to say "19!? Really?!"]''\\
'''Ross:''' Joey had an imaginary childhood friend. His name was...\\
'''Monica:''' [[Music/SteveMillerBand Maurice!]]\\
'''Ross:''' Correct. His profession was...\\
'''Rachel:''' Oh - [[Music/SteveMillerBand space cowboy!]]\\
'''Ross:''' Correct! ''[Joey grins proudly and nods until he notices Chandler glaring at him]'' What is Chandler Bing's job?\\
''[Monica and Rachel are both utterly silent, Joey gets excited while Chandler gets a "You seriously don't know this!?" look]''\\
'''Rachel:''' Oh... oh, gosh! It has something to do with numbers...[[note]] The second time in eleven episodes Rachel has come up with this exact sentence when it emerges that no-one knows what Chandler does for a living.[[/note]]\\
'''Monica:''' And processing!\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[stammers]'' He carries a briefcase!\\
'''Ross:''' Ten seconds, you need this or you lose the game. ''[Rachel starts to panic]''\\
'''Monica:''' It's, uh... it has something to do with transponding...\\
'''Rachel:''' OH! OH! OH! HE'S A TRANSPONST-- TRANSPONSTER! ''[Chandler, Joey, and Monica look at her in disbelief]''\\
'''Monica:''' ''THAT'S NOT EVEN A WORD!'' No, I can get this, I can get this...\\
''[Ross stops the timer and looks at them as if to say "Sorry, you lose!"]''\\
'''Rachel:''' [[OhCrap Oh my]] ''[[OhCrap God....!]]''\\
'''Monica:''' '''''[[BigNo NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!]]'''''\\
'''Chandler and Joey:''' '''''[[BigYes YEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!]]'''''[[note]] This becomes a BrickJoke when, in one of the later seasons, Monica finally remembers what Chandler's job is. Of course, this happens after he has left the job.[[/note]]
** And then Chandler and Joey gliding in to their new apartment triumphantly on the big white dog.

[[AC:413: TOW Rachel's Crush]]
* After the apartment switch, the gang are still gravitating toward spending time in what is now Chandler and Joey's apartment, which plays havoc with Monica's insecurities. In a bid to retain her role as the group's party hostess, she bakes cookies and wafts the smell across the hall; Phoebe and Joey are the first to notice. However, in the outtakes, Matt [=LeBlanc=] couldn't resist having fun with the scene...
-->'''Phoebe:''' What do I smell?\\
'''Joey:''' ''[raises his hand sheepishly]'' Sorry. ''[the cast break character and start cracking up]''\\
''[reset for another take]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' What do I smell?\\
''[{{Beat}}]''\\
'''David Schwimmer:''' ''[breaking character]'' [=LeBlanc=]. ''[more laughter]''

[[AC:414: TOW Joey's Dirty Day]]
* Joshua invites Rachel to the opening of a nightclub in which he has invested and puts her on the VIP list; however, this invitation comes immediately after Mr. Waltham has persuaded Rachel to take his niece Emily (introduced in this episode) to a performance of ''Die Fledermaus''. With Monica working, Phoebe suffering morning sickness (in the evening), Chandler still moping over being cheated on by Kathy, and Joey having staggeringly terrible BO after a three-day fishing trip without a shower and a fall into a tub of worms, Rachel is running out of options for someone to send to the opera in her place - until...
-->'''Rachel:''' ''[sees Ross sitting in one of the recliners eating a cracker; she smiles]'' Hi!\\
'''Ross:''' Hi.\\
'''Rachel:''' So...?\\
'''Ross:''' ''[pretends to think about it for a moment]'' No...\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[groans]'' Oh, come ''on!''...\\
''[there is a knock at the door]''\\
'''Monica:''' ''[heads for the door]'' I think she's here.\\
'''Rachel:''' No - wait, wait, wait - Ross, ''please.''\\
'''Ross:''' You want me to take some girl I've never met to the ''opera'' so you can go to a club and flirt with some guy. ''[sarcastically]'' Hm. Yeah, that... that ''is'' a toughie...
* But Ross eventually agrees and accompanies Emily to the opera while Rachel heads to the nightclub. Unfortunately, as she relates to Monica and Phoebe the next morning, her name was misspelled as "Rachel Greep" on the guest list, and someone else claiming to be "Rachel Greep" was allowed in instead - although she did punch a woman who tried to steal her umbrella. Phoebe's attempt to console her features a classic {{Cloudcuckoolander}} moment:
-->'''Rachel:''' ''[sitting in one of Chandler and Joey's recliners]'' Ugh! I can't ''believe'' this! All I wanted was just a few hours outside of work to see Joshua, so that he could go ahead and start falling in love with me. ''[sighs]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[walks over and starts rubbing the top of Rachel's head]'' Aw, Pheebs...\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[looks confused]'' Honey, that's ''your'' name.\\
'''Phoebe:''' That's short for "Phoebe"? I thought that's just what we called each other!
* Then the phone rings, and as Monica answers it, Rachel gets a nasty shock about how Ross' evening with Emily went...
-->'''Monica:''' ''[listens, then turns to Phoebe, Rachel, and Chandler]'' He's with Emily at a bed and breakfast in Vermont!\\
'''Phoebe:''' What? Oh my God!\\
'''Rachel:''' What? Who the hell is Emily- ''[remembers and gasps]'' '''Noooo...'''\\
''[cut to commercial; cut back from commercial]''\\
'''Rachel:''' They're in Vermont!? How could this happen?! ''[flails her arms, swatting Chandler in the process]''\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[glares at Rachel]'' Ow.\\
'''Rachel:''' How did he end up in Vermont with that awful WITCH!? ''[flails her arms again, hitting Chandler again]''\\
'''Chandler:''' Maybe she doesn't ''hit him'' all the time!\\
''[...]''\\
'''Rachel:''' I don't get this, she was HORRIBLE! ''[flails her arms and hits Chandler yet again]''\\
'''Chandler:''' Okay, I'm gonna go stand over there. ''[points, then walks in the direction in which he was pointing]''

[[AC:415: TOW All the Rugby]]
* Chandler crosses paths with Janice again and can't stand all of her annoying habits anymore. Rather than just say he doesn't want to get back together, he lies about his company transferring him to Yemen soon. It gets harder and harder to maintain this story, as Janice helps him pack and goes with him to the airport, insisting on staying until the plane pulls away from the gate.[[note]] The episode being set before 9/11 made such gateside goodbyes impossible at US airports.[[/note]] Ultimately, admitting the truth just isn't an option.
-->'''Chandler:''' ''[boarding a plane to the Middle East]'' I'm going to Yemen! ''[to a fellow passenger]'' When we get to Yemen, can I stay with you?

[[AC:417: TOW the Free Porn]]
* This episode sees Phoebe discovering that she is going to have triplets - which poses a financial conundrum considering that Alice is a home economics teacher in the public school system and Frank Jr. has just started studying to become a refrigerator repairman. So Phoebe presents a money-making idea to Monica, Rachel, Chandler, and Joey by producing a large case containing serrated knives and an empty [[ProductPlacement Fresca]] can:
-->'''Phoebe:''' Now, don't you hate it when you have to cut a tin can with an ordinary steak knife? ''[effortlessly slices the can in two with one motion of the knife and shows off the two pieces]'' Haaa! ''[puts the pieces down and picks up the knife]'' Now. I know what you're thinking!\\
'''Chandler:''' "Pregnant Woman Slays Four"?

[[AC:419: TOW All the Haste]]
* The BookEnds. At the beginning, there is a singing man in the apartment across the street from Rachel's bedroom who sings in the morning to start the day, which greatly annoys her. At the end of the episode, after Joey and Chandler return to the apartment, Joey is woken up by the same guy, but sings along with him.

[[AC:420: TOW All the Wedding Dresses]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5MN7Q3sD8o Every scene involving wedding gowns]]. Culminating in Rachel, Monica and Phoebe sitting in a couch, drinking beer in bridal wear.
-->'''Phoebe:''' At least you didn't get yours from a store called "It's Not Too Late".

[[AC:423-24: TOW Ross's Wedding]]
* Perhaps the funniest BedmateReveal in the entire series:
-->'''Ross:''' ''[bursting into Chandler's hotel room, deliriously excited]'' I'M GETTING MARRIED TODAY! WOOO!\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[deadpan]'' Morning, Ross.\\
'''Ross:''' I'M GETTING MARRIED ''TO-DAY!''\\
'''Chandler:''' ''Yeah, y'are!''\\
'''Ross:''' AH-WOOHOO! ''[leaves and closes the door after him]''\\
'''Monica:''' ''[[[WhamShot appearing from under the covers next to Chandler]]]'' You think he knew I was here?
* Creator/HughLaurie's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXNd99IhdmA guest appearance]]. After being an unwilling audience to Rachel's explanation of why she is flying to London, he delivers a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to which Rachel doesn't have much of a counterargument, then rubs salt in the wound...
-->'''Rachel:''' ''[talking to the passenger across the aisle, who has a copy of Jen Banbury's ''Like a Hole in the Head'' and looks as though he is mentally comparing listening to Rachel's story to just that]'' So then I realise, all the stuff that I have been doing - proposing to Joshua, lying to Ross about why I couldn't come to the wedding - was all just a way of-\\
'''Man by the window:''' ''[snaps and removes his headphones]'' Oh, oh, oh, OH! I'm sorry, can I interrupt? Yeah, I just want to say that ''you''... are a horrible, ''horrible'' person!\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[taken aback]'' P- pardon me?\\
'''Man by the window:''' You say you love this man, and yet you're about to ruin the happiest day of his life! I'm afraid I have to agree with your friend "Pheebs". This is a, this is a terrible, ''terrible'' plan.\\
'''Rachel:''' But he has to know how I feel!\\
'''Man by the window:''' But ''why?'' He loves this, this Emily person! No good can come of this.\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[scoffs]'' Well, I-I think you're wrong!\\
'''Man by the window:''' Oh no! ''[[[SarcasmMode bites hand]]]''\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[scoffs again]'' Well, he doesn't really love her, I mean, it's just a rebound thing from me! ''[points at him]'' You'll see!\\
'''Man by the window:''' Fortunately, I won't. ''[goes to replace his headphones, then removes them again]'' And by the way, it seems to be perfectly clear that [[TakeThat you]] ''[[TakeThat were]]'' [[TakeThat on a break!]] ''[replaces his headphones]''\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[gasps in shock]''

[[folder: Season 5]]
[[AC:501: The One After Ross Says Rachel]]
* Chandler and Monica are about to have sex in the plane bathroom. Monica's already there and Chandler's about to follow when Joey shows up and talks his ear off about how he thinks the giant from ''Film/MyGiant'' is more talented and taller than him.

[[AC:502: TOW All the Kissing]]
* In TheTeaser, Monica ducking under the water to stop Joey from discovering her having a bath with Chandler.
-->'''Chandler:''' ''[off Joey's reaction to the sight of him seemingly alone in a candlelit bubble bath with a glass of wine]'' I've had a long, hard day.
* When Joey leaves and Monica pops back up, Chandler apologizes and tells her that Joey offered chicken...which Monica kinda wants, so Chandler calls him back as Monica hides again and places an order, with her doing ''something'' under the water to make him change the order for a Coke to a Diet Coke.
* As Chandler gets up to leave for work after Rachel returns from Greece, he reflexively kisses Monica goodbye - in front of Rachel and Phoebe. He tries to cover his mistake by kissing them goodbye as well, and repeats this several times during the episode.
-->'''Joey:''' What the hell was that!?\\
'''Monica:''' Probably some... y'know, European goodbye thing he picked up in London, I... ''[shrugs]''\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[scoffs]'' That's not European!\\
'''Phoebe:''' It felt French.

[[AC:503: The One Hundredth]]
* Joey proves that he can make any sentence sound dirty. Case in point: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGC-lvCWsrM "Grandma's Chicken Salad."]]
* Rachel tries to set herself and Monica up with two male nurses at the hospital at which Phoebe is having the triplets. Chandler's jealous reaction comes perilously close to sinking his relationship with Monica, but he finally talks his way back into her good graces, and she goes to cancel her date with the nurse. Chandler breaks into a happy dance...
-->'''Monica:''' ''[without even turning around]'' Don't do the dance.\\
'''Chandler:''' Right. ''[stops dancing]''

[[AC:504: TOW Phoebe Hates Creator/{{PBS}}]]
* Once Ross finally gets estranged wife Emily on the phone, he gets so excited that he shushes everyone and then hands Chandler a lamp for no reason at all. It's random and hilarious.

[[AC:505: TOW the Kips]]
* Monica and Chandler convincing Joey that it's 9AM when it's really 3. Joey apparently has never been awake at 9. Even funnier: he goes into the bathroom to clean his teeth; seconds later, Chandler opens the bathroom door to reveal Joey, sitting on the toilet with his toothbrush in his mouth, fast asleep.
* Rachel doesn't take it well when Ross reveals that Emily will only offer him a way back into her good graces if he agrees never to see Rachel again - but chooses a rather tactless way to express this:
-->'''Rachel:''' Ugh. You know, it was just a matter of time before someone had to leave the group. I just always assumed Phoebe would be the one to go.\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[offended]'' Uhh!\\
'''Rachel:''' Honey, come on! You live far away, you're not related, you lift right out!
* Rachel later patches things up with Phoebe and suggests the two of them break away and form their own social group (Phoebe asks if they can bring Joey as well, thus leaving Chandler and the Gellers on their own). Then Ross arrives as Phoebe leaves:
-->'''Phoebe:''' Bye, Ross! ''(whispers) [-Forever.-]''
* ''[[TheDitz Joey]]'' of all people is the first to figure out that Monica and Chandler are dating; [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v44x7SFm3Eo his reaction is priceless]].
-->'''Joey:''' How?! When?!\\
'''Chandler:''' It happened in London.\\
'''Joey:''' ''IN '''LONDON?!'''''

[[AC:506: TOW the Yeti]]
* When Emily calls Ross and everyone says hi, she asks who's there (obviously fishing to see if Rachel is there).
-->'''Emily''': Hello everyone! So who am I saying hello to?\\
'''Joey''': Well uh, I don't know about who's here, ''[[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial but I can tell you for damn sure who's not here and that's Rachel!]]''
* And later, when Ross decides he can't keep up the charade and reveals that Rachel is in fact there, Chandler tries to act like they just didn't see her.
-->'''Emily''': She's there?!\\
'''Chandler''': Oh yeah, there-there she is!

[[AC:508: TOW the Thanksgiving Flashbacks]]
* On Thanksgiving in 1992, Joey puts Monica's turkey on his head to scare Chandler and then can't remove it. When he, Monica, and Phoebe spend a few seconds brainstorming for ways to remove the turkey, Joey holds his hand to his chin - or, rather, the turkey's backside - in a thoughtful pose.
* Chandler finds out Monica trying to get revenge on him for calling her fat on Thanksgiving in 1987 is the reason he lost his toe on Thanksgiving in 1988.
-->'''Chandler''': That's why for an entire year people called me "Sir Limps-A-Lot"!?\\
''[...]''\\
'''Ross''': ''[grinning]'' "Sir Limps-A-Lot". I came up with that.\\
'''Joey''': You're a dork.

[[AC:509: TOW Ross' Sandwich]]
* Ross, already struggling with anger issues after the Thanksgiving leftover sandwich Monica made for him was stolen from the museum employees' fridge (a struggle "helped" by a threatening note Phoebe wrote for him to stop the replacement sandwich from being stolen), does not take it well when his boss reveals that he [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUtP03kUnTA ate the sandwich - well, sort of, he actually threw most of it away...]]
-->'''Dr. Ledbetter:''' ''[chuckles]'' Oh, you know what? I, I'm sorry, I... I, I believe I ate that.\\
'''Ross:''' ''[long pause]'' You ate my sandwich?\\
'''Dr. Ledbetter:''' It was a simple mistake, it could happen to anyone.\\
'''Ross:''' ''[his TranquilFury gradually becoming less tranquil]'' Oh, rea-really? Did you confuse it with your own turkey sandwich with a Moistmaker?[[note]] Ross' term for the piece of gravy-soaked bread Monica puts on Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches to address the usual problem of the turkey drying out.[[/note]]\\
'''Dr. Ledbetter:''' No, I-\\
'''Ross:''' Do you perhaps remember seeing a note on top of it?\\
'''Dr. Ledbetter:''' There may have been a, a, a joke or... limerick of some kind...\\
'''Ross:''' ''That said it was MY sandwich!''\\
'''Dr. Ledbetter:''' Now- now calm down... come look in my office, uh, some of it may still be in the trash.\\
'''Ross:''' ''[stands up, struggling mightily to keep his composure]'' What?\\
'''Dr. Ledbetter:''' ''[also standing up]'' Well, it was quite large, I... ''[stammers]'' I had to throw most of it away!\\
'''Ross:''' You - you - you - you ''threw my sandwich away!? [exterior shot of the museum]'' '''My sandwich!?''' ''[shot of a flock of pigeons in Central Park] '''MY SANDWICH?!''' [the pigeons scatter]''
* Chandler mocking psychologists after Ross is forced to take a sabbatical.
-->'''Chandler''': Yeah, y'know, I hate it when they make me see the shrink at my office. You know, he's always like "Oh, maybe your colleagues will like you better if you like yourself better". Who needs that?\\
'''Monica''': You do.\\
'''Chandler''': I know!
* Rachel finding a naked picture of Monica meant for Chandler but blamed on Joey. Hell, the entire [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LA_nL8K2dg8 scene]] is one.
-->'''Rachel:''' He has naked pictures of us, then he eats chicken, and then he looks at them!

[[AC:510: TOW the Inappropriate Sister]]
* From TheTeaser, Joey shows Ross how to pace himself while being out of work by prank-calling Chandler:
-->'''Chandler''': Hello, Chandler Bing?\\
'''Joey''': ''[falsetto]'' Hello, Mr. Bing. I love you.\\
'''Chandler''': Look, whoever this is, stop calling. It's been six months, it's not funny!\\
'''Joey''': I can see you, Mr. Bing. You look sexy in your new suit.\\
'''Chandler''': LEAVE ME ALONE! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD LEAVE ME ALONE! ''[hangs up]''\\
'''Joey''': ''[To Ross]'' And that's Wednesday!
* The episode's A plot is set in motion when Monica finally loses patience with Rachel's "plan" to lure Danny, introduced in "TOW the Yeti", into going out with her.
-->'''Rachel:''' ''[as Danny enters Central Perk]'' Oh my God. Okay, you guys, here's Danny, watch. Just watch this. ''[Danny crosses to the counter and orders a cup of coffee to go]'' See? Still pretending he's not interested. ''[Ross and Joey share a confused look; Danny crosses back with his coffee]'' Okay, he's coming over. Just pretend like we don't know him - we've ''forgotten'' who he is.\\
'''Danny:''' Hey guys!\\
'''Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, Joey, Ross:''' Hey Danny.\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[glares at the other five, but avoids making eye contact with Danny for a few seconds, then...]'' Oh Danny! Hey!\\
'''Monica:''' ''[puts a hand to her forehead]'' Danny? You know Rachel. You know, she's nice, she's not bad to look at, right?\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[deadpan]'' Thanks, Mon.\\
'''Danny:''' Of- of course!\\
'''Monica:''' Do you wanna go out on a date with her?\\
'''Rachel:''' ''Monica!''\\
'''Danny:''' Ab- absolutely! Is Friday okay? ''[Rachel mutters to herself]''\\
'''Monica:''' Friday is perfect, she can't wait.\\
'''Danny:''' On the date, I will be able to talk to her directly, right? All right, see you Friday! ''[leaves]''\\
'''Rachel:''' Okay - what the ''hell'' was that? You know what - don't answer me. ''[giddily] I have a date with Danny!'' HA!
* The episode's title refers to the gang noticing Danny and his sister Krista are [[IncestSubtext a little too close]].
** It starts with Rachel returning to her and Monica's apartment after seeing Danny with his arm around Krista (whom Rachel does not know is Danny's sister) as they board the subway together. Monica assures Rachel that after their date, Danny will forget all about the "stupid subway girl". The funniest part of the scene comes after Rachel heads into her bedroom - and Monica quickly ushers a half-dressed Chandler out of her own bedroom and through the front door... after which he immediately returns for just long enough to kiss her goodbye.
** But after a gathering at Central Perk during which Krista feeds Danny cake off her finger and then wipes icing off his crotch after it falls off mid-bite, Monica and Chandler have joined Rachel in finding Danny and Krista's relationship bordering on incestuous (Joey, true to form, is a few steps behind the others).
--->'''Chandler:''' ''[after Danny and Krista have departed]'' Oh my God!\\
'''Monica:''' That was unbelievable.\\
'''Rachel:''' Okay, see? I told you!\\
'''Joey:''' Yeah, wow, sorry Rach.\\
'''Chandler:''' I don't ''believe'' they're brother and sister!\\
'''Joey:''' ''[flabbergasted; points toward the door]'' [[TheDitz They're brother and sister!?]]\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[spends a few seconds visibly wondering how Joey can be so clueless, then turns to Rachel]'' So I guess you're gonna have to cancel your date.\\
'''Monica''': And call their mother!

[[AC:511: TOW All the Resolutions]]
* TheTeaser finds the gang watching the Times Square ball drop on TV at midnight on New Year's Eve, with Chandler and Monica dejected that they can't kiss at midnight without raising eyebrows they'd rather not raise. Joey, at this point still the only one to know about their relationship, puts on an uncharacteristic display of quick thinking to dilute the effect. The funniest parts are Ross and Rachel's identical reactions to the same logic in different contexts and Phoebe's reaction to Joey subtly reeling her into the plan:
-->'''Ross:''' ''[hopping up and down]'' 33! 32! 31!\\
'''Joey:''' Ross, Ross, Ross! ''[Ross stops hopping]'' Ross, listen! Who are you kissin' at midnight, huh? Rachel or Phoebe?\\
'''Ross:''' What?\\
'''Joey:''' Well, you gotta kiss someone! Can't kiss your sister!\\
'''Ross:''' Well, who's gonna kiss my sister?\\
'''Joey:''' Chandler!\\
'''Ross:''' ''[grimaces]'' Aw, man, ''really?''\\
'''Joey:''' Dude, dude, who would you rather have kiss your sister, me or Chandler?\\
'''Ross:''' That's a good point. Well, since I have that whole history with Rachel, I guess Phoebe.\\
'''Joey:''' Okay, great! ''[walks over to Phoebe]'' Pheebs! Pheebs! Listen, Ross wants to kiss you at midnight!\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[rolls eyes]'' It's so ''obvious'', why doesn't he just ask? ''[smiles and heads over to Ross]''\\
'''Joey:''' ''[gives Chandler and Monica a thumbs up and turns to see Rachel walking away from the fridge]'' Rach! Rach! Listen, I'm gonna kiss you at midnight.\\
'''Rachel:''' What?\\
'''Joey:''' Well, everyone's gotta kiss someone. Can't kiss Ross, you got the history.\\
'''Rachel:''' So?\\
'''Joey:''' So, who would you rather have kissing you, me or Chandler?\\
'''Rachel:''' Oh, good point. ''[nods]''\\
'''Partygoers:''' THREE! TWO! ONE! HAPPY NEW YEAR! ''[a cacophony of noisemakers goes off as Joey and Rachel kiss, Ross and Phoebe kiss, and Chandler and Monica kiss - a bit more passionately and for a bit longer than the other two pairs, but not enough to attract attention]''\\
'''Chandler:''' Happy New Year.\\
'''Monica:''' Happy New Year.\\
'''Ross:''' Happy New Year, Pheebs.\\
'''Phoebe:''' You too!\\
'''Rachel:''' Happy New Year, Joey!\\
'''Joey:''' ... so, that do anything for you? ''[Rachel looks perturbed]''
* Then there are the actual resolutions. They range from the mundane - Monica's is to take more photographs of the gang - to the bizarre - Phoebe's is to pilot a commercial jet - to, well...
** Joey's resolution is to learn how to play guitar, since he lists that on his resumé. Phoebe offers to teach him, but her teaching methods are unorthodox, to say the least; she won't let him actually hold a guitar for the first few lessons, and since she has no background in music theory, she refers to the chords by nicknames instead of note names. Then she discovers that Joey has been finding ways around the limits of her instruction:
--->'''Phoebe:''' Tiger. ''[Joey moves his hand into what Phoebe has told him is the configuration for a guitar chord]'' Dragon. ''[Joey shifts his fingers]'' Iceberg! ''[Joey shifts his fingers again; Phoebe despairs]'' Joseph, did you even study at ''all'' last night?\\
'''Joey:''' Yes, yes I did!\\
'''Phoebe:''' Then do Iceberg!\\
'''Joey:''' ''[to himself]'' G-sharp... ''[moves his fingers into position]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[incensed]'' G... sharp? Have you been studying the real names of the chords? ''[Joey doesn't answer]'' Have you!? ''[Joey looks guilty]'' Oh my ''God''...\\
'''Joey:''' What?! I, I didn't touch a guitar!\\
'''Phoebe:''' No, but you're questioning my method!\\
'''Joey:''' No, I'm not questioning it, Phoebe, I'm sayin' it's stupid! ''[notices Monica standing between him and Phoebe, smiling]'' What? ''[the timer on Monica's camera goes off]''\\
'''Monica:''' Thank you! ''[goes to her bedroom]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' You know, none of my other... student... thought I was stupid!\\
'''Joey:''' ''[leafing through the Yellow Pages]'' Your other ''student'' was ''YOU!''\\
'''Phoebe:''' Yeah - well - y'know, maybe you just need to try a little harder!\\
'''Joey:''' And maybe I need to try a real teacher! Right here, here! ''[shows Phoebe an entry in the Yellow Pages]'' Andy Cooper! He teaches guitar! And look, ooh, there's a nice picture of him with a little kid, yeah, '''''and the kid's got a guitar!'''''\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[as Joey storms back to his and Chandler's apartment]'' FINE! You go and learn from your... qualified instructor! But don't come crying to me when everyone is sick and tired of hearing you play [[Music/JimCroce "Bad Bad Leroy Brown"]]!\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[entering, singing]'' "Baddest man in the whole damn town..."\\
'''Phoebe:''' Oh, fine, take his side! ''[leaves, slamming the door behind her and leaving Rachel thoroughly confused]''
** Rachel's resolution is to gossip less - so naturally, this is the episode in which she learns of Chandler and Monica's relationship. She is desperate to tell someone, and settles on Joey, but he is already sick of keeping secrets (unware that it's the same secret he's already keeping) and covers his ears and closes his eyes while singing tunelessly at the top of his lungs. Rachel gives up and leaves, then Chandler enters, sees Joey, and grins as he gets an idea. He picks up the chicken, which starts flapping its wings in protest, and holds it right in front of Joey's face. Joey opens his eyes... and '''screams'''.
** Ross' resolution is to try something new every day. He starts by asking out fellow Central Perk customer Elizabeth Hornswoggle, and the next day he buys a pair of skintight leather pants... which contract while he is wearing them on his date at Elizabeth's, forcing him to go into the bathroom and pull them down to his knees to cool off his legs. But then he can't pull them up again, and he calls Joey in a panic; Joey suggests talcum powder and moisturising lotion, but they combine to cover his legs in a white paste. Finally, Elizabeth gets concerned over the length of time Ross has spent in the bathroom, so he emerges, his legs still covered in paste and his pants crumpled into a ball and held over his crotch:
--->'''Elizabeth:''' ... oh my ''God!''\\
'''Ross:''' ''[sheepishly]'' I had a problem.
** Finally, Chandler's resolution is to stop making fun of his friends. Ross wagers him $50 that he can't last a week, and in TheStinger, Chandler gives in:
--->'''Chandler:''' ''[entering Central Perk to find Ross, Monica, and Phoebe sat around the table]'' Oh good. Okay, look, I can't take it anymore, I can't take it anymore, so you win, okay? Here. ''[hands Ross $50]'' Pheebs? Flying a jet? Better make it a spaceship so you can get back to your ''home... planet! [Phoebe looks unamused]'' And Ross, phone call for you today, Music/TomJones, he wants his pants back! ''[Ross looks embarrassed]'' And "Hornswoggle"!? What, are you dating a character from ''Series/FraggleRock''? ''[he lets out a long, loud sigh of relief; Monica takes a picture of him]''

[[AC:512: TOW Chandler's Work Laugh]]
* Ross finds the other five already in Central Perk and orders a scone from Gunther, then tells the rest of the group that someone he knows is getting married, and weddings are happy, right? Oh, and "by the by", the person getting married is his now ex-wife Emily. When Gunther gives him the scone, he passes the plate to Rachel, puts the scone on the table...
-->'''Ross:''' ''[pounding the scone with his fist on each word]'' STUPID - BRITISH - SNACK - FOOD!\\
'''Chandler:''' Did they teach you that in your anger management class?\\
''[...]''\\
'''Joey:''' ''[looks at the flattened scone]'' Anybody gonna eat that?
* The episode's A plot sees Monica and Chandler relishing not having to hide their status as a couple at social events thrown by Chandler's employers, until Monica discovers that Chandler has an irritating nasal fake laugh that he trots out for his boss Doug's bad jokes. Chandler tells her that she'll need a fake laugh of her own to get through the office party, so she develops one that must be heard to be believed; comparisons to barking seals are not unmerited. She trots it out again when Rachel asks if there is anything going on between her and Chandler.
* Phoebe tries to mediate an argument between the duck and the chicken, which has unintended consequences for Ross' communication with Emily:
-->'''Phoebe:''' ''[the duck quacks]'' Okay, then what happened? ''[the duck flaps its wings; Phoebe gasps]'' Oh! Uh-huh, uh-huh... ''[the chicken clucks]'' Uhh- you'll get your turn!\\
'''Ross:''' ''[enters, dejected]'' Hey Pheebs, what's goin' on?\\
'''Phoebe:''' Nothing! ''[picks up the chicken]'' This is ''not'' over. ''[sets the chicken down on the floor]''\\
'''Ross:''' ''[grabs a piece of paper from the counter where the chicken was sitting]'' No, no, no!...\\
'''Phoebe:''' What?\\
'''Ross:''' Ugh! I was up all night writing this really nasty letter to Emily, it was perfect, and now it's all covered in, in... ''[the duck quacks]'' Actually, thanks! ''[smiles]''
* As if two people with {{Annoying Laugh}}s in one episode isn't enough, Ross gets so angry about Emily getting married to someone else that he wanders off and ends up hooking up with Janice.
-->'''Janice''': Okay, okay, I know what you all are thinking, but [[ContinuityNod Chandler is in Yemen]]! I'm a young woman. I have needs. I can't wait forever.
* When Joey and the others question him about what he's done, Ross says he and Janice actually have a lot in common.
-->'''Phoebe''': So, are you actually gonna see her again?\\
'''Joey''': Phoebe, don't put ideas in his head.\\
'''Ross''': I am gonna see her again.\\
'''Joey''': Dammit, Phoebe!
* Janice breaks up with Ross because he keeps complaining about the various problems he's endured this season. The idea that he's become so whiny that ''Janice'' can't stand to be around him is a wake-up call for him.

[[AC:513: TOW Joey's Bag]]
* Joey starts wearing a bag around to try and improve his credibility as an actor. Chandler and Ross make much with the fun, until eventually Chandler runs out of ways to imply Joey's a woman, and just runs with.
-->'''Rachel:''' That bag is definitely going to get you the part.\\
'''Chandler:''' And a date with a man!
* The subplot about Chandler lying to Monica about her terrible massages.
** He didn't want to hurt her feelings, but when he finally tells her the truth, she starts crying.
--->'''Chandler''': Okay, but now see, you're crying.\\
'''Monica''': I'm not crying about that. I'm crying about something that happened at work.\\
'''Chandler''': What?\\
'''Monica''': My boyfriend said he didn't like my massages!\\
'''Chandler''': It's okay. You don't have to be the best at everything.\\
'''Monica''': OH MY GOD, YOU DON'T KNOW ME AT ALL!
** The way Chandler gets out of this is pretty good, too: [[InsaneTrollLogic telling Monica she gives the best bad massage]].

[[AC:514: TOW Everybody Finds Out]]
* Phoebe's amazingly shocked/{{Squick}}ed reaction to seeing Monica and Chandler having sex. She starts yelling "Chandler and Monica! CHANDLER AND MONICA!" (along with Rachel going "[[OhCrap Oh my God!]]") and then she eventually covers her eyes and yells "MY EYES!"
-->'''Rachel:''' Phoebe, it's okay! IT'S OKAY!\\
'''Phoebe:''' NO, THEY'RE ''DOING IT!!''\\
'''Rachel:''' I know, I know! I know!\\
'''Phoebe:''' YOU ''KNOW?''\\
'''Rachel:''' YES I KNOW, AND JOEY KNOWS, BUT ROSS DOESN'T KNOW [[HypocriticalHumor SO YOU HAVE TO STOP SCREAMING!!]]
* After Phoebe sees Monica and Chandler having sex from the view out the window, she and Rachel pretend to be super-excited about Ross possibly getting the apartment to distract him from looking out the window. He even joins in the excitement by the end. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbYpbdHCqUI It has to be seen to be believed.]]
* Ross is disappointed his bribe to Ugly Naked Guy of a basket of mini muffins wasn't working:
-->'''Ross''': Someone sent us a basket at work once, and people went crazy over those little muffins. It was the best day.\\
'''Chandler''': Your work makes me sad.
* The reaction of the group is priceless when they see Ross hanging out with Ugly Naked Guy while being naked himself!
-->'''Joey:''' Hey, hey, check it out, check it out! Ugly Naked Guy's got a naked friend! ''[Chandler, Monica, Rachel, and Phoebe join him at the window]''\\
'''Rachel:''' Oh yeah!... ''[all five of them slowly get utterly horrified looks]'' Oh my God, that's '''our friend!''' ''[Monica turns and buries her face in Chandler's shoulder]'' IT'S NAKED ROSS!\\
'''Chandler, Phoebe, Joey:''' Oh my God!/It ''is'' Ross!...
* Rachel and a reluctant Joey help Phoebe prepare for her "date" with Chandler. Joey isn't paying particularly close attention to Phoebe's requests:
-->'''Rachel:''' Show time!\\
'''Phoebe:''' Okay, Rachel, get me perfume!\\
'''Rachel:''' Okay! ''[she runs off to do just that]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' And Joey, get me a bottle of wine and glasses? ''[Joey trudges off to do just that; Rachel returns with the perfume and sprays it in the air in front of Phoebe, who walks into the mist and spins around in it. Meanwhile, Joey returns with a bottle and two mugs]'' All right! Thanks. But... um, glasses that do not have handles and that are glass. ''[looks at the bottle]'' And, um, wine that is not olive oil.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb3TdbQVP5A Chandler and Phoebe's]] flirting shenanigans. Phoebe 'dances' for him while promising she's 'very bendy', while Chandler just looks terrified the entire time.
-->'''Phoebe:''' So ... this is my bra.\\
'''Chandler:''' I'm so happy that we're going to have all the sex.
* In TheStinger, Ross, having succeeded in subletting Ugly Naked Guy's apartment, is meeting with his boss to prove that he's no longer angry. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4fb37UThL4I Then he sees Monica and Chandler fooling around through their apartment window]]:
--> '''Ross:''' Wait. No...! What? ''What are you doing?! '''[[SuddenlyShouting GET OFF MY SISTER!!!]]'''''

[[AC:515: TOW the Girl Who Hits Joey]]
* The entire opening scene where Ross confronts Chandler and Monica.
** Ross' [[LargeHam rather hammy rage]] throughout the scene for the first half, complete with him sticking his head through the door (which is thankfully bolt locked) ala Film/TheShining:
--->'''Ross:''' Chandler! CHANDLER! ''[tries to open the door, but can only get it open a few inches because of the chain; Monica and Chandler jump up and hastily re-adjust their clothes]'' I saw what you were doing through the window, I saw what you were doing to my sister, NOW GET OUT HERE!
** Chandler's reaction to Ross clearly wanting to gut him is priceless:
--->'''Chandler:''' [''quickly''] Listen, we had a good run. What was it four, five months? I mean, that's more than most people have in a lifetime. So goodbye, take care, buh-bye then.\\
[''Chandler kisses Monica on the cheek, then heads for the apartment window'']\\
'''Monica:''' What are you doing?\\
'''Chandler:''' Oh, I'm going on the lam...
** Rachel and Joey arrive after having heard Ross scream:
--->'''Rachel:''' Hey, what- what's going on?\\
'''Chandler:''' [''staring down an angry Ross''] Well I think -- I '''''think''''' -- Ross knows about me and Monica?\\
'''Joey:''' [''whispering while making "cut" gesture at his throat''] [[ComicallyMissingThePoint Dude, he's right there?!]]\\
'''Everyone Else:''' [''looks at Joey with a DeathGlare, especially Chandler'']
** After [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments Chandler and Monica reveal they love each other and Ross gushily accepts it]] Joey says they should leave so Chandler and Monica can get back to what they were doing. Ross shoots him a {{Squicked}} look leading to this gem:
--->'''Joey:''' Hey, I'm just talking here, he's the one doing your sister!

[[AC:516: TOW a Cop]]
* Ross buying a new couch.
** Ross apparently expects a lot of his new couch:
--->'''Ross''': I want my couch to say "Kids welcome" but also say (''seductively'') "Come here to me".\\
'''Rachel''': What? You say that to KIDS?\\
'''Ross''': No, no. It's for the ''ladies.''\\
'''Rachel''': Ross, honey, it's a nice couch, it's not a ''magic'' couch.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_PklVas9cA Ross' attempt to enlist Rachel and Chandler to get his new couch up several flights of stairs goes badly.]]
--->'''Ross:''' ''[as the couch gets wedged between the balustrades]'' Pivot! Pivot! PIVOT!!\\
'''Chandler:''' SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP!
** In TheStinger, Ross returns the couch, which appears to have been hacked in half with a chainsaw. He dodges the shop assistant's questions about whether the couch was delivered in that condition or he was the one who chopped it up, and tells her that he will accept store credit toward a replacement. The unamused shop assistant offers him $4 in store credit; Ross has to think about it for a moment before accepting.

[[AC:517: TOW Rachel's Inadvertent Kiss]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05c4TS7obbM Ross' "bits" when he gets his new apartment.]]
-->'''Joey''': Oh looklooklook, Ross is doing his "watching TV" bit.\\
''(cut to Ross at the window sitting on his couch and watching TV)''\\
'''Monica''': No Joey, I think he's just watching TV.\\
''[[spoiler:(cut to Ross in his apartment, the TV is off and Ross just grins)]]''

[[AC:519: TOW Ross Can't Flirt]]
* Ross' painful attempts at flirting with the cute pizza delivery girl who has short hair. She jokes with Chandler that her new haircut makes her look like an "eight year old boy" (Chandler says if that were true, gym class would have been a lot more interesting). When she comes to deliver pizza to them again, at the door Ross says, [[MistakenForPedophile "You know I happen to like eight year old boys."]]

[[AC:520: TOW the Ride Along]]
* Rachel happens to be in Ross's apartment when Emily leaves a message saying she's thinking of backing out of her wedding. She calls Monica over to discuss whether they should tell Ross or delete the message:
-->'''Monica:''' She's obviously unstable, okay? She's thinking of running out on her wedding day. ''(Rachel turns to glare at her with pursed lips: she did that in the pilot. Monica sees this.)'' Okay, fine! But look at the position she's putting him in. And what's he gonna do? Like, Ross is gonna run over there on the wedding day and break up the marriage? Who would do that? ''(Rachel claps her hands, sighs, and turns with another glare: she did that in the previous season finale)'' Okay, fine, alright? But, y'know, that was different. Although it did involve a lot of the same people.
* During the ride along, the group mistakes a car backfiring for a gunshot. Joey dives on top of Ross, but he later reveals he was actually trying to protect his sandwich.

[[AC:522: TOW Joey's Big Break]]
* One of the episode's B plots focuses on Phoebe being angry at Ross for reasons she won't discuss - especially not with Ross himself. When Ross sits next to her on the sofa at Central Perk and she leans further and further away from him while holding a magazine right up to her face, he tries offering an apology for his mysterious slight, and it seems to work, until...
-->'''Ross:''' ''[gets up to leave]'' I'll, uh... I'll see you later, okay?\\
'''Phoebe:''' Bye. ''[to herself]'' Fatass.\\
'''Ross:''' ''[snaps]'' ALL RIGHT! Phoebe, now come on! Would you please tell me what it is that made you so mad at me!?\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[huffily]'' I don't know, I don't remember!\\
'''Ross:''' ... well, if you can't remember, can't we just forget about this?\\
'''Phoebe:''' Ohhh no, I am mad at you, I know that much. But I am sorry about the "fatass" thing, 'cause you actually have a very sweet little heinie. ''[Ross reflects on this, then smiles and shrugs modestly before going back to looking confused]''
* Ross finally tricks Phoebe into explaining the reason for her anger at him:
-->'''Ross:''' Okay, Pheebs, I know how we're gonna figure this out. Clear your mind, and answer the first thing that comes into your head, okay?\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[smiles]'' Mm-hmm.\\
'''Ross:''' What do you like better, flora or fauna?\\
'''Phoebe:''' Fauna.\\
'''Ross:''' Who would you rather be, [[Music/SimonAndGarfunkel Simon or Garfunkel]]?\\
'''Phoebe:''' Garfunkel.\\
'''Ross:''' Why are you mad at me?\\
'''Phoebe:''' You said I was boring. ''[realises]'' Ohh!\\
'''Ross:''' When did I say you were boring!?\\
'''Phoebe:''' Oh my God, I remember now! We were playing chess!\\
'''Ross:''' ... Phoebe, you and I have ''never'' played chess.\\
'''Phoebe:''' Oh ''come on'', yes, 'member, that time on the frozen lake, we were playing chess, you said I was boring, and then you took off your energy mask and you were Creator/CameronDiaz! ''[Ross looks thoroughly confused; after a moment, so does Phoebe]'' Okay, there's a ''chance'' this may have been a dream...

[[AC:523-24: The One in Vegas]]
* Phoebe confronting the lurker.
-->'''Phoebe''': I'm gonna be on your ass every hour of every day till Monday because that's when I go home. When do you leave?
-->'''Lurker''': Also Monday.
-->'''Phoebe''': ''(in the exact same angry tone)'' What time? Maybe we can share a cab.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Season 6]]
[[AC:602: TOW Ross Hugs Rachel]]
* Ross, Rachel, and Phoebe are on their way to a movie when Ross confesses to Phoebe that he didn't get his Vegas marriage with Rachel annulled. Phoebe promptly hails a taxi, shoves Rachel into it even though the cinema to which they are going, the Angelica, is within walking distance, and bangs on the roof while shouting [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9aFX9L8e-N0 "Hurry, the Angelica! Go! Go!"]] to the driver, who takes off. After Phoebe confronts Ross over lying to Rachel about the annulment, Rachel's taxi reverses back to where Phoebe and Ross are standing. Phoebe asks Rachel how she enjoyed the movie; Rachel points out that she hasn't seen it, so Phoebe bangs on the taxi roof while shouting "Hurry, the Angelica! Go! Go!" again. And once again the driver takes off as Rachel yells at him to stop.
* Monica's intensity is always a sight to behold such as the time when she tried to get Rachel to cry when she told her that she and Chandler are moving in together.
-->'''Monica''': It's the end of an era, you might say.\\
'''Rachel''': Mon, are you okay? You're not blinking.

[[AC:604: TOW Joey Loses His Insurance]]
* Joey's time out of work has caused his health benefits to lapse, so he needs to find work to qualify for insurance again. Unfortunately, in preparing for his auditions, he gives himself a hernia lifting weights, and he can't get surgery without insurance, so he has to audition for roles with a hernia. His first audition is for a swing set commercial, appearing opposite an eight-year-old boy:
-->'''Joey:''' ''[puts hand down his pants to relieve the pain]'' Hey Timmy, I've got a surprise for you.\\
'''Casting director:''' Oh my ''God!''
* Near the end of the episode, Joey gets the easier job of filming a deathbed scene, but they can't get the stonefaced kid acting as his son to cry. [[CrossesTheLineTwice They show him the hernia. Cue the waterworks.]]
-->'''Chandler:''' WE HAVE HIM CRYING, JOHN, ROLL THE DAMN CAMERAS!
* In the B plot, Ross gets a faculty position at NYU, but in his first class, a case of nerves causes him to talk with a (not very good) fake English accent. Then Monica and Rachel arrive, and soon they are also affecting (even worse) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnXJzxVSPyk fake accents]] (Irish for Monica, Indian for Rachel).

[[AC:606: The One on the Last Night]]
* After a night of arguing with Rachel, Monica realizes how much she is going to miss her when she leaves -- and ruins what otherwise would have been a TearJerker moment with a nice bit of {{Bathos}}:
-->'''Monica:''' And when I told her that I was gonna be moving in with Chandler, she was really supportive. ''(To Rachel - starts to well up)'' You were so ''great.'' You made it so easy. And now you have to leave! ''(breaks down)'' ''And I have to live with a BOOOOOYYYYY!''

[[AC:607: TOW Phoebe Runs]]
* With Joey already on his guard about getting into a relationship with his new roommate, Janine, he becomes convinced that there is romantic tension developing between them and seeks Ross and Chandler's advice on how to repel women.
-->'''Joey:''' Look, I need your help, okay? I have to do something to, to repel this woman! ''[gets an idea]'' Wait a minute, wait a minute... you guys repel women all the time! ''[Ross and Chandler look offended]''\\
'''Ross:''' Hey, I've been married three times! ''[cue SarcasticClapping from Chandler; Ross glares at him]''\\
'''Joey:''' No, no no no no! I've seen it happen! You, you, you get a rapport going with a woman, but ''somehow'' you manage to kill it! What's your secret?\\
'''Ross:''' Look, we do ''not'' repel women, okay? That is completely untrue!\\
'''Chandler:''' Ohhh, yes we do, my man. Remember when we were back in college, when we went to that spring dance, and you walked up to that girl you liked, and you could ''not'' stop talking about the Irish potato famine?\\
'''Ross:''' Yeah, well, what about you? You weren't so, y'know, hot in college either! After everything he said, he'd go ''[mimics {{Rimshot}}]''\\
'''Chandler:''' ... yeah, Monica doesn't like that either, maybe I should stop doing that?\\
'''Ross:''' Well, you know what? Girls don't like it when I, when I start talking about science.\\
'''Chandler:''' That's not specific to girls.\\
'''Joey:''' This is great, this is great! Wh- what else, what else?\\
'''Ross:''' Uh... oh, they don't like it when [[YouMakeMeSic you correct their grammar.]]\\
'''Chandler:''' And they don't like it when [[DontExplainTheJoke you explain why your jokes are funny.]]\\
'''Ross:''' You know, they don't like it when you keep ''asking'' them if ''they'' like ''you''.\\
'''Chandler:''' Man, I'm so lucky I have Monica.\\
'''Ross:''' I'm never gonna find love again.
* Ross has already sent Chandler into a panic by pointing out that his decision to clean the apartment means that nothing is where Monica usually puts it, and he predicts she'll kill him when she sees the "mess" he's made. Then Monica returns:
-->'''Chandler''': No, no, no, no, no, no! You can't come in here. Ross is naked!\\
'''Monica''': What?!\\
'''Ross''': What?!\\
'''Chandler''': I couldn't say that I was naked because she's allowed to see me naked.\\
'''Ross''': Why does ''anyone'' have to be naked?\\
'''Monica''': Why is Ross naked?\\
'''Ross''': I... I had to... show Chandler something.\\
'''Monica''': ''Naked?''\\
'''Ross''': Yeah, I uh... I guess I have a, uh... a guy problem.\\
'''Monica''': Is it the same thing that Chandler had? ''[Chandler looks mortified and makes warding gestures toward the door]''\\
'''Chandler''': Look, just come back later. We'll get everything squared away and you can come back later.\\
'''Monica''': Okay. Hey, listen, there's still some of Chandler's medicine left under the sink in the bathroom. Bye.\\
'''Chandler''': Bye-bye. Thank God.\\
'''Ross''': Dude, what'd you have?

[[AC:608: TOW Ross' Teeth]]
* After the opening credits, the series lampshades its use of the OneHourWorkWeek:
-->'''Rachel:''' But Pheebs, you - you could still use the copy machine where I actually work. But just come by at lunch so that my boss doesn't see you, 'cause Kim will just freak out, and she already doesn't like me very much.\\
'''Chandler:''' That's weird, I don't think my boss likes me either.\\
'''Monica:''' Mmm... I don't think mine likes me either!\\
'''Ross:''' Maybe it's a... universal thing?\\
'''Joey:''' Yeah, or ''maybe'' it's because you're all hanging around here at 11:30 on a Wednesday!\\
''[Rachel, Chandler, Monica, and Ross absorb this]''\\
'''Chandler:''' Yeah, let's head off to work. ''[Rachel, Monica, and Ross murmur agreement, and all four of them get up and leave]''
* HilarityEnsues when Ross leaves teeth whitener on a whole day. Phoebe's reaction:
-->'''Phoebe:''' Ross, could you put up some of these flyers for me?\\
'''Ross:''' Yeah. ''(smiles at Phoebe)''\\
'''Phoebe:''' NO! DEMON! DEMON!

[[AC:609: TOW Ross Got High]]
* An extended series of awkward reveals from the episode's climax. Ross reveals that the reason Jack and Judy Geller have been cold to Chandler for a long time is because they nearly caught Ross smoking marijuana when he was home from NYU on spring break, but Ross claimed that Chandler had been smoking in his room and then jumped out of the window. As such, Monica has been unable to tell her parents about her relationship with Chandler. Meanwhile, Rachel has prepared a traditional English trifle for dessert but didn't notice that the pages in her magazine were stuck together, leading her to add a layer of minced beef, onions, and peas (crossed over from a recipe for shepherd's pie), Phoebe has gone from having erotic dreams about Jack to having erotic dreams about Creator/JacquesCousteau, and Joey is anxious to leave the Thanksgiving festivities to go to a party his roommate Janine and her fellow dancers are throwing. It all comes to a head when Monica loses patience with Ross' attempts to get out of confessing and confesses for him:
-->'''Monica:''' Ross? Let's go.\\
'''Ross:''' Oh, yeah, about telling Mom and Dad, I was thinking about maybe writing a letter...\\
'''Monica:''' You know what? That's it. You've had your chance. ''[marches over to the back of the sofa on which her parents are sitting]''\\
'''Ross:''' Wh- what-\\
'''Monica:''' Mom, Dad? Ross smoked pot in college.\\
'''Mr. and Mrs. Geller:''' What??\\
'''Ross:''' ''[childishly]'' You are ''such'' a tattletale! ''[walks around to the front of the sofa]'' Mom, Dad? ''[sits on the coffee table]'' You remember that time you walked in my room and smelled marijuana?\\
'''Mr. and Mrs. Geller:''' ''[giving Chandler a DeathGlare]'' Yes.\\
'''Ross:''' Well, I told you it was Chandler who was smoking the pot but... it was me. I'm sorry.\\
'''Mrs. Geller:''' It was ''you?''\\
'''Monica:''' And Dad, you know that mailman you got fired? He didn't steal your Playboys, Ross did! ''[the Gellers give Ross a DisapprovingLook]''\\
'''Ross:''' ''[decides to fight fire with fire]'' Yeah, well Hurricane Gloria didn't break the porch swing, Monica did! ''[Rachel, Joey, and Phoebe look shocked, while Monica looks outraged]''\\
'''Monica:''' Ross hasn't worked at the museum for a ''year! [the Gellers gape at Monica in disbelief]''\\
'''Ross:''' ''Monica and Chandler are ''living'' together! [Monica looks horrified, Chandler looks embarrassed, and the Gellers look stunned]''\\
'''Monica:''' ''Ross married Rachel in Vegas, and got divorced! '''AGAIN!''''' ''[Ross looks mortified]''\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[deciding to join in]'' I love Jacques Cousteau! ''[the Gellers look at her in utter confusion]''\\
'''Rachel:''' ''[reading the recipe she was following]'' I wasn't supposed to put beef in the trifle!\\
'''Joey:''' ''[pounding the table in desperation]'' I WANNA GOOOOOOOOOO!\\
'''Mrs. Geller:''' ''[rubbing her temple]'' ... That's a lot of information to get in thirty seconds. ''[stands up]'' Alright. Joey, if you wanna leave, just leave. Rachel, no you ''weren't'' supposed to put beef in the trifle. It did NOT taste good. ''[Rachel looks at Joey as if to say "Why didn't you say anything before!?"]'' Phoebe, I'm sorry, but I think Jacques Cousteau is dead. ''[Phoebe looks crestfallen]'' And Monica, why you decided to hide such an important relationship from us is beyond me.\\
'''Mr. Geller:''' And we kind of figured about the porch swing.\\
'''Mrs. Geller:''' Ross. Drugs? Divorced, ''again?''\\
'''Mr. Geller:''' What happened, son?\\
'''Ross:''' I...I, uh, I got...tricked into all those things!\\
'''Mrs. Geller:''' Chandler... ''[ushers Ross out of the way as Chandler stands up]'' You've been Ross's best friend all these years, ''[Ross puts his hand on Chandler's shoulder]'' stuck by him during the drug problem, ''[Ross removes his hand, rolls his eyes, and walks off]'' and now you've taken on Monica as well! Well... I don't know what to say. You're a wonderful human being.\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[amazed and delighted]'' Thank you!\\
'''Mr. Geller:''' No! Thank ''you! [grabs the sides of Chandler's face, then he and Chandler hug]'' Monica, and Ross, I don't know what I'm gonna do about the two of you! ''[Monica and Ross look sheepish]''\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[in a parental tone of voice]'' I'll talk to them.

[[AC:610: TOW the Routine]]
* Two words: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytPjH7ikQZU THE ROUTINE.]] Made even better by Ross and Monica's [[SeriousBusiness serious expressions]] and the ''extremely'' cheesy 90's music playing: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FiSWLKAPpT0 Trouble With Boys]]" by Loreta.

[[AC:613: TOW Rachel's Sister]]
* Everyone is in Monica and Chandler's living room when there's a knock at the door. Everyone turns to look at the door in surprise, then at each other in confusion. Phoebe even points to everyone as if counting to make sure that all six of them are in fact present and they didn't forget anyone.

[[AC:614: TOW Chandler Can't Cry]]
* Joey trying to make Chandler cry by telling a story of a 3-legged puppy.
-->'''Joey:''' What if it looked up at you and said "Help me, Chandler. All the other puppies pick on me."\\
'''Chandler:''' Cry? I just found a talking puppy. I'm rich!

[[AC:615-16: The One That Could Have Been]]
* The speculation in this episode is set in motion by the revelation in TheTeaser that Rachel's ex-fiancé and his wife are getting divorced.
-->'''Rachel:''' Hey, you guys! Guess what? Barry and Mindy are getting a divorce.\\
'''Joey:''' [''looking at Ross''] What is the matter with you?!\\
'''Phoebe:''' No, Barry and Mindy.\\
'''Joey:''' Oh, sorry. I hear "divorce," I immediately go to Ross.
* Alternate Chandler and Monica talking about having sex. Their normal selves are awkward enough at these things, but with Monica shyer and fat, and Chandler extra-geeky and even more insecure than usual, it's taken UpToEleven. Watch their nervous discussion on whether they have 'moves'...They really don't.
* Alternate Rachel freaking out when she sees ''Days of our Lives'' star Joey Tribbiani in the coffee shop:
-->'''Monica:''' Rach, heís a friend of ours.\\
'''Rachel:''' (stunned) You are friends with Dr. Drake Remoray?\\
'''Chandler:''' Well itís kinda hard to be friends with Drake because of his busy schedule and the fact that heís not real.
* Rachel finds out that Monica is still a virgin:
-->'''Rachel:''' Monica? You've done it, right?\\
'''Monica:''' ''(laughs nervously)'' Of course I have. What do you think, I'm like some 30-year-old virgin?\\
'''Rachel:''' Oh, my God! You're a 30-year-old virgin!\\
'''Monica:''' Say it louder! I don't think the guy all the way in the back heard you!\\
'''Guy in the back:''' Yeah, I heard it.

[[AC:617: TOW the Unagi]]
* The moment when Chandler gives Monica a late Valentines present of a mix tape he randomly found and doesn't even know the contents of, you know it's going to backfire for him somehow. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeXZyr7Fz7E And boy does it ever!]]

[[AC:619: TOW Joey's Fridge]]
* Ross introduces his 20-year-old girlfriend Elizabeth to the rest of the gang at Central Perk; inevitably, they can't resist kidding him about dating someone over ten years his junior once she has departed:
-->'''Chandler:''' So why is she leaving, is it a school night and she has a lot of homework to do?\\
'''Ross:''' ''[deadpan]'' Yes. Her molecular epidemiology paper is due tomorrow.\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[with a forced smile]'' Oh. Well, tell her good luck with that.\\
'''Ross:''' Anyone else? Huh? Bring 'em on... ''[sits on the arm of the sofa]''\\
'''Rachel:''' Oh! When's her birthday?\\
'''Ross:''' ''[à la the straight man in a comic double act]'' I don't know, Rachel! Why?\\
'''Rachel:''' Well - y'know, it's just been so long since I've been to Chuck E. Cheese... ''[the others laugh, Ross sarcastically]''\\
'''Monica:''' I like Elizabeth.\\
'''Ross:''' Well, thanks!\\
'''Monica:''' Yeah... in fact, I like her so much, you tell her I want my cookies early this year! ''[Phoebe laughs]'' Y'know, a box of Thin Mints and some Tagalongs!
* Phoebe, Monica and Chandler are competing to get Rachel a date for a charity ball her work is throwing. When trying to settle which guy they've chosen is better:
-->'''Phoebe:''' Have you seen your guy's body?\\
'''Chandler:''' No, our guy is just a floating head.
* Joey discussing his broken fridge:
-->'''Joey:''' Look, okay. Suppose we were a divorced couple.\\
'''Chandler:''' Uh-huh.\\
'''Joey:''' And I got custody of the kid. Right. And suppose the kid... dies... and, and I gotta buy a new kid.\\
'''Chandler:''' ...Okay...?\\
'''Joey:''' ''({{Beat}})'' GIMME FOUR HUNDRED DOLLARS!
* And later on when Ross is talking about how to tell Elizabeth he doesn't want to go to a Spring Break trip with her, [[EpicFail Joey childishly tries to pin the breaking of his fridge on Ross:]]
-->'''Joey:''' Or, you could just, y'know...''(pushes Ross not-so-subtly into his fridge)''\\
'''Ross:''' ''({{beat}})'' What the hell are you doing...?!\\
'''Joey:''' ''(feigning outrage)'' What the hell am ''I'' doing?! ''You just broke my fridge!!''\\
'''Ross:''' ''What?'' Wha- How do you know it's- how do you know it's even broken?!\\
'''Joey:''' Oh, you think I don't know what breaks my fridge? Excuse me - ''(quickly checks his fridge)'' Ohhh, whaddya know! ''Broken!'' That'll be four hundred dollars.\\
'''Chandler:''' Joey, I ''saw you push him!''\\
''({{beat}})''\\
'''Joey:''' ''[[NoYou You]]'' [[NoYou pushed him!]]

[[AC:621: TOW Ross Meets Elizabeth's Dad]]
* Ross' efforts at impressing [[Creator/BruceWillis Elizabeth's father]] totally failing.
-->'''Paul''': It's just I didn't know you were married.\\
'''Rachel''': ''(comes back from the bathroom)'' Oh, we were but it was just this big drunken mistake.\\
'''Paul''': You two were married?!\\
'''Rachel''': [[DiggingYourselfDeeper I'm sorry, I guess you were talking about Emily.]] ''(Ross FaceFault[=s=])''

[[AC:622: TOW Paul's the Man]]
* Rachel's boyfriend Paul dancing in front of a mirror. "I'm just a love machine. YEAH BABY, HUUUUUUUAAAA!" And yeah, Paul is played by ''Creator/BruceWillis!'' Best part? Ross is [[RightBehindMe listening to it all under the bed...]] Even better since Ross [[IronicEcho repeats it later]] to Paul, using it as blackmail so he can continue dating Elizabeth.
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Season 7]]
[[AC:701: TOW Monica's Thunder]]
* Chandler wants sex advice:
-->'''Chandler''': Joey, you've had a lot of sex, right?
-->'''Joey''': ''(confused)'' What, today? Some...not a lot.

[[AC:704: TOW Rachel's Assistant]]
* After Monica baits Chandler into telling her that Ross had an unfortunate incident on Space Mountain at Disneyland after an ill-advised binge at a "taco stand" (a guy with a hibachi operating out of the back of his car), Ross retaliates with the following story of a trip to Atlantic City:
-->'''Ross''': Well, Chandler and I were at a bar...\\
'''Chandler''': Did you not hear me say "DU-UDE"?!\\
'''Ross''': And this girl is making eyes at Chandler, okay? So after a while he goes over to her and after a minute or two I see them kissing... And I know what you're thinking: Chandler's ''not'' the type of guy who just goes to bars and makes out with girls, and you're right. Chandler's not the type of guy who just goes to bars and makes out with ''girls''...\\
'''Monica''': YOU KISSED A GUY?!?!\\
'''Chandler''': In my defense, it was dark, and he was a ''very pretty guy!''
* And so the gloves are off and Chandler and Ross reveal embarrassing secrets about each other from their years at NYU:
-->'''Ross''': Chandler entered a Music/VanillaIce look-alike contest and won!\\
'''Chandler''': Ross came in fourth and ''cried!''

[[AC:706: TOW the Nap Partners]]
* The episode's A plot sees Ross and Joey becoming "nap partners", meaning they are only able to take restful naps when snuggled up together. In TheStinger, they wake up to find Phoebe, Rachel, Chandler, and Monica all standing in a row, staring at them with varying amounts of amusement and confusion. Neither Ross nor Joey feel like explaining themselves...
-->'''Joey:''' ''[jumps off the sofa, feigning disgust]'' What the hell are you doing!? God! ''[stomps off to his bedroom]''\\
'''Ross:''' ''[gets up much more slowly, then gives the other four an embarrassed look]'' Excuse me... ''[leaves]''

[[AC:709: TOW All the Candy]]
* Ross' "The bike is dying speech" especially the end when the seemingly unfazed Phoebe pleads for her bike not to die after Ross leaves.

[[AC:710: TOW the Holiday Armadillo]]
* Ross had to buy an armadillo costume because there were no Christmas costumes left at the store (in order to teach his son Ben about Hanukkah). Chandler then shows up dressed like Santa Claus:
-->'''Ross:''' [''dressed as the Holiday Armadillo''] What are you doing here, Santa?\\
'''Chandler:''' [''dressed as Santa''] Why I'm here to visit my old buddy Ben! What are ''you'' doing here?... weird... turtle man?\\
'''Monica:''' Ben, why don't you come over here and open some more presents while [[ItMakesSenseInContext Santa, the Armadillo and I have a little talk in the kitchen.]] [[ARareSentence There's a sentence I never thought I'd say]].
* When Chandler prepares to return the Santa outfit:
-->'''Monica:''' Hey. [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar You think you can keep it another night?]] [''MeaningfulLook'']\\
'''Chandler:''' Santa? ''[[HeadTiltinglyKinky Really?]]''\\
'''Monica:''' Yeah, is that okay?\\
'''Chandler:''' Did your...''dad'' ever dress up as Santa?\\
'''Monica:''' ''No.''\\
'''Chandler:''' [''in his Santa voice''] Then it's ''oh-kaaay''!
* "My favorite part was when Franchise/{{Superman}} flew all the Jews out of Egypt!" The smug look and nod on Joey's face here just ''makes it.''
-->'''Ross:''' The Armadillo was actually ''not so thrilled'' about that part!

[[AC:711: TOW All the Cheesecakes]]
* A rare Chandler/Rachel subplot features them constantly swiping their neighbor's cheesecake and eating it for themselves, falling so in love with the taste that they eat it off of the floor after dropping it in the hallway. And when they're on the floor, Joey walks in on them. He stares down at them, before crouching to their level...while taking out a fork of his own and asking what they're having.

[[AC:713: TOW Rosita Dies]]
* Monica's things from her childhood get ruined because her dad puts her boxes in front of his Porsche to divert water when the garage flooded. Feeling guilty and wanting to make up for making Monica think that she was TheUnfavorite, he gives her the Porsche. Ross's reaction makes the scene more than just a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}.
-->'''Monica:''' ''What?''\\
'''Ross:''' '''''[[BigWhat WHAT?!!]]'''''\\
''[...]''\\
'''Ross:''' Whoa, w-w-wait-wait a minute! I mean a couple of ''stupid boxes'' get wet and she gets a ''PORSCHE?!''\\
'''Jack:''' Why don't we take it for a spin?\\
'''Monica:''' Alright!\\
'''Ross:''' Wh-what about me?! I'M A MEDICAL MARVEL!
* Phoebe gets a job as a telemarketer and the first person she calls (Earl, played by Creator/JasonAlexander) reveals he's contemplating suicide.
** Without giving his name, Earl explains he's stuck in a meaningless office and that none of his co-workers know he exists.
--->'''Phoebe:''' Chandler?
** Earl proves his point that no one cares about him by publicly announcing his intention to kill himself and not a single person in the crowded office batting an eye.
** Phoebe manages to track down where Earl works and gets into his office. When she asks a staffer for him, the person has no idea who she's talking about.
--->'''Earl:''' ''[a few desks away]'' I'M RIGHT HERE!

[[AC:714: TOW They All Turn Thirty]]
* The main plot involves Rachel, the youngest of the main six, turning 30.[[note]] In reality, Matthew Perry is the youngest of the group; he is six months younger than Jennifer Aniston.[[/note]] She isn't taking it well, and refuses to face her friends before Tag lays down the ground rules; one of the things they shouldn't say is "They still look pretty damn good", and Joey replies "They do!".
* The extremely inappropriate card Chandler gives her doesn't help Rachel's mood:
-->"Happy birthday, Grandma. It's better to be over the hill than buried under it."
* Other funny moments from Rachel's birthday include Tag and Joey fighting over a scooter, as seen when Tag tries to flee on it after overhearing Rachel say she should already be with the person she is going to marry and Joey running after him shouting at him to stop hogging it.
* The episode also features flashbacks to the other characters' 30th birthdays.
** We start with short scenes from first Joey, then Chandler turning 30. At both of their parties, Joey is crying hysterically about the "deals" he made with God to prevent him and the gang from aging not working.
** Monica's 30th birthday gets a longer flashback:
*** The gang are throwing a formal, lavishly catered surprise party - with Jack and Judy Geller among the guests - only to find that Monica was taken out for drinks by the busboys at her restaurant and has returned home so blitz drunk she can barely stand. As her parents have never seen her drunk, they have to conceal her state from them as best they can. Phoebe (who loves "drunk Monica", finding her much more fun than "regular Monica") offers to divert the guests' attention by getting twice as drunk (which doesn't thrill Chandler, as "drunk Phoebe" is mean), while Chandler has to recruit Rachel to help Monica change into her party dress:
---->'''Rachel:''' What's going on?\\
'''Chandler:''' Monica's wasted.\\
'''Ross:''' ''[bored]'' Maybe that'll liven up this party.\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[to Rachel]'' Okay, will you just go help her get changed, please?\\
'''Rachel:''' Okay, but taking care of a drunk, naked woman seems like a job for Joey... ''[heads to Monica's room]''\\
'''Joey:''' Yep. ''[starts walking toward Monica's room, but runs into Chandler's outstretched arm]''
*** When Monica staggers out of her bedroom in her formal dress (Rachel describes it as like watching Disney/{{Bambi}} learning to walk), Phoebe's idea of distracting the other guests turns out to be clinking her glass and shouting "Speech!" - after all, everyone is looking at her instead of Monica, and, as she proudly tells Chandler, she didn't even have to remove her top. The spotlight (and Jack Geller's camcorder) now on Monica, she drops the charade and gleefully tells her parents "[their] little Harmonica is hammered!" - and not for the first time - and that she has also smoked a cigarette and is hiding a box of Ding-Dongs in her underwear drawer, but it's all right because she is now a grown-up and can do as she pleases - which at that moment apparently involves falling to the floor in a drunken stupor. All while Ross films the whole thing (having taken the camcorder from his shocked father). Phoebe then decides to go to her emergency backup diversion (even though there is no longer a secret from which to divert attention):
---->'''Phoebe:''' ''[gesturing to the neck strap on her dress]'' Quick, help me get this off!\\
'''Joey:''' ''[eagerly]'' Yeah! ''[starts untying the strap; Ross points the camcorder at them]''
** Phoebe's 30th birthday also gets a longer flashback as she tries to make up with Ursula, only to discover from Ursula's birth certificate (her own having been sold to a Swedish runaway) that her 30th birthday was a year ago; the Buffay sisters are actually 31.[[note]] In reality, Lisa Kudrow is the oldest of the main cast, having been born in 1963 compared to 1964 for Courteney Cox, 1966 for David Schwimmer, 1967 for Matt [=LeBlanc=], and 1969 for Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry.[[/note]] She ruefully tells Joey that this means there are things she wanted to do before turning 31 but now hasn't, such as having the perfect kiss, meeting Portuguese people, and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick going to sniper school.]]
** Ross has a midlife crisis on his 30th birthday and buys a vintage MG sports car - except he can't get it out of its parking spot because it's cornered front and rear. So he gets the gang to "Lift... and slide". It works about as well as you'd expect.

[[AC:715: TOW Joey's New Brain]]
* Chandler and Monica's mortification when they hear Ross practicing his bagpipes across the street.
-->'''Monica''': Why is your family Scottish?!
-->'''Chandler''': Why is ''your'' family '''Ross'''?!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQicfUjVVqU Phoebe singing along]] as Ross plays the bagpipes. Jennifer Aniston is trying her hardest not to laugh during that scene. Her lyric is basically "EEEEEEEEEE! EEEEEEEEEEE! EEEEEEE! EEEE! EEEEEEEEE! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!" Even funnier in the outtake, where she can't stop laughing. In fact, if you look at the scene, Lisa Kudrow just can't seem to keep a straight face while 'singing'.

[[AC:716: TOW the Truth About London]]
* Hypothesizing what would have happened if Joey and Monica had hooked up.
-->'''Monica''': Honey? Dinner's ready!\\
''(A massively overweight Joey waddles onto the screen)''\\
'''Joey''': What's my little chef got for me, tonight?\\
'''Monica''': Your favorite!\\
'''Joey''': Hoo Hoo Hoo! Fried stuff with cheese!

[[AC:717: TOW the Cheap Wedding Dress]]
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pUMHDW3xG0M scene]] where Rachel and Phoebe help Monica shop for her wedding dress during a sale.

-->'''Ross:''' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQFFyKthv_s Were you on a]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iULTDFlcorI poster for gonorrhea?]]

[[AC:718: TOW Joey's Award]]
* Ross [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wWGXwbeE4qU imitating a velociraptor]] when a student asks how the "high-pitched intimidating noise" the raptor used to scare its prey might have sounded.

[[AC:720: TOW Rachel's Big Kiss]]
* Rachel's old college friend revealing then denying her love for Rachel.
-->'''Melissa''': I'm obviously kidding. I'm not in love with you. I'm not in love with her. I don't hear coconuts banging together. You know, [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial I don't...picture your face when I make love to my boyfriend.]]

[[AC:722: TOW Chandler's Dad]]
* When Kathleen Turner first appears as Chandler's dad:
-->'''Monica''': ''(shocked that Chandler's dad looks like an attractive woman)'' That can't be your father.\\
'''Chandler''': Believe me, I've been saying that for years.
* Which made [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit Jessica Rabbit]] appearing on Chandler's list (of women he's allowed to sleep with) a couple of seasons earlier [[HilariousInHindsight absolutely HYSTERICAL in hindsight.]][[note]] Kathleen Turner provided Jessica Rabbit's voice in the movie. [[/note]]

[[AC:723-24: TOW Chandler and Monica's Wedding]]
* Chandler's parents insulting each other at the rehearsal dinner. His dad tells his mom (who is wearing a ''very'' low-cut dress and bulging out of it) that she's too old to be dressed like that. His mom tells his dad (who is wearing a plunging v-neck blouse and a skirt) that he has too much penis to be dressed like that.
* Joey puts on shades before going to film his World War One movie, to avoid his co-star spitting in his eyes:
--> '''Ross''': And if I remember correctly, Ray-Ban was the official sponsor of World War One.
* Rachel never met Chandler's dad, who is a Drag Queen, and mistakes a woman for him:
-->'''Rachel''': Hi! I'm Rachel! I'm a friend of Monica and Chandler's!\\
'''Amanda''': I'm Amanda.\\
'''Rachel''': Oh I get it! A man, duh!
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Season 8]]
[[AC:802: TOW the Red Sweater]]
* Joey proposing to Phoebe who he believes is pregnant.
-->'''Monica:''' Phoebe, I think he would notice if you didn't have a baby after nine months.\\
'''Phoebe:''' It's Joey! ''(mouths "I love you" to Joey and he smiles)''
* After Joey is told that Rachel, not Phoebe, is pregnant, he reveals to Monica and Phoebe that a month earlier, an unidentified man spent the night with Rachel and left a red sweater behind; Phoebe recognises it as a sweater Rachel's ex-boyfriend Tag used to wear and invites him to Central Park to reveal the truth, only for him to reveal that he is wearing his red sweater. Then Ross and Chandler show up after having mistakenly believed they lost the disposable cameras from Chandler and Monica's wedding and taken photos of themselves at another wedding, and as Ross turns to leave... well, the best part of what follows is Joey's massively DelayedReaction.
-->'''Ross:''' Hey, my sweater! ''[picks up the red sweater; the studio audience cheers]'' I've been looking for this for like a month! ''[leaves]''\\
'''Monica, Phoebe:''' ''Oh my God!''\\
''[very long pause as Joey smiles and nods... and ''finally'' gets a shocked look on his face]''\\
'''Joey:''' OH MY GOD!

[[AC:803: TOW Rachel Tells Ross]]
* Rachel telling Ross that's she's pregnant results in StunnedSilence.
-->'''Rachel''': Ross. ''[no answer]'' Ross? ''[{{beat}}]'' Okay, whenever you're ready. ''[leans back and opens a magazine]''\\
''The show goes to commercial, and comes back to find him still staring openmouthed''
* Ross reveals Rachel is pregnant despite a condom:
-->'''Ross:''' I just found out that condoms are only, like, 97% effective.\\
'''Joey:''' [[FlatWhat What.]]\\
'''Ross:''' I gotta go find her. [''starts to leave'']\\
'''Joey:''' Whoa! Hey! Whoa!! Hold up! Are you serious?! So like 3% of the time they donít even work?! Huh? They should put that on the box!\\
'''Ross:''' Evidently they do.\\
'''Joey:''' WHAT?! [''grabs a'' huge ''roll of condoms from his pocket to look''] Well I'll be...

[[AC:804: TOW the Videotape]]
* Rachel shows a video purportedly of Ross begging her to get it on on the night she got pregnant, only to find out that ''she'' was the one who came on to ''him'' - and that everyone knows about her technique involving 'the video of her vacation in Europe', and that Joey started it.
-->'''Rachel''': I heard it from my friend Irene who heard it from some guy!\\
'''Joey''': ''[raises hand]'' Some guy! ''[points to self]''\\
'''Rachel''': But, but, but, she said his name was Ken Adams!\\
'''Joey''': ''[raises hand and points to himself again]'' Ken Adams!

[[AC:806: TOW the Halloween Party]]
* Ross, dressed as "Spud-nik", being mistaken as "Doodie" by Joey during the Season 8 Halloween episode. All the better because Joey ticks him off so much that Ross actually waddles over to beat Joey up (only being stopped when Chandler holds him back).
-->'''Joey''': What's Sputnik, Doodie-man?

[[AC:808: TOW the Stripper]]
* Monica accidentally hires a hooker instead of a stripper for Chandler's (belated) bachelor party. Meanwhile, Rachel's father finds out that Ross got Rachel pregnant, and goes to confront him when he's with his new girlfriend, Mona:
-->'''Dr. Green:''' You think you can knock up my daughter and then not marry her?! Iím gonna kill you!\\
'''Ross:''' Yíknow this is actually not a great time for me.\\
''[cut to commercial; cut back from commercial]''\\
'''Dr. Green:''' So? Come on! Explain yourself Geller! First you get my Rachel pregnant!\\
'''Mona:''' You got Rachel pregnant?!\\
'''Ross:''' Who did?!\\
'''Dr. Green:''' You did!\\
'''Ross:''' Yes. Yes, yes I did. ''(To Mona)'' But-but it was, it was just a one night thing. It meant nothing.\\
'''Dr. Green:''' Oh? Really? Thatís what my daughter means to you? Nothing?\\
'''Ross:''' No! No sir umm, she means a lot to me. I mean, I careóI-I love Rachel.\\
'''Mona:''' What?!\\
'''Ross:''' ''(to Mona)'' Oh but not that way. I mean... I mean I'm not in love with her. I love her like a, like a friend.\\
'''Dr. Green:''' Oh really? Thatís how treat a friend? You get her in trouble and then refuse to marry her?\\
'''Ross:''' ''(to Dr. Green)'' Hey! I offered to marry her!\\
'''Mona:''' Wha...\\
'''Ross:''' ''(To Mona)'' But I didnít ''want'' to.\\
'''Dr. Green:''' Well why not? So you can spend your time with this tramp?!\\
'''Mona:''' Tramp?!\\
'''Ross:''' I'm sorry. Dr. Green, Mona. Mona, Dr. Green.
* The scene cuts to Chandler and Joey who don't know what to do about the hooker, than back to Ross:
-->'''Mona:''' How could you have kept all of this from me?\\
'''Ross:''' I was going to tell you, but...\\
'''Dr. Green:''' But what?! You figured youíd get what you wanted and then dump her like you dumped Rachel!\\
'''Ross:''' Hey! I did not dump Rachel! ''(To Mona)'' Nor are we still together. ''(The phone rings and Ross goes to answer it, only he's trapped behind the apothecary table by Dr. Green)'' Can I just... ''(Dr. Green glares at him)'' Why don't we just let the machine get that?\\
'''Joey:''' ''(on machine)'' Hey Ross. It's Joey. There's a hooker over here and we thought maybe you'd know something about it.\\
'''Ross:''' No! ''No!'' No! ''No!'' No! I-I-I-IóI need to, I need to lie down.

[[AC:809: TOW the Rumor]]
* This episode has both the title rumor and all related implications, and Joey arriving with elastic pants (where it's clear that Creator/BradPitt is [[{{Corpsing}} cracking up]]).
* The gang finding out about Ross' affair with his elderly high school librarian.
-->'''Ross:''' The eyes... did still sparkle...

[[AC:812: TOW Joey Dates Rachel]]
* Phoebe gives Chandler and Monica a ''[[VideoGame/PacMan Ms. Pac-Man]]'' machine as a wedding gift, and Chandler fills the entire high score board with obscene words - playing so much ''Ms. Pac-Man'' in the process that his hand gets locked into a claw formation.
--> '''Chandler''': My hand is ''messed up!''
* Since Ben is coming to visit the next day and Monica doesn't want her seven-year-old nephew learning obscenities from an arcade machine, she tries to beat Chandler's highest score ten times without success. Fortunately, Phoebe is rather more skilled at the game, and clears nine obscene names off the high score board. However, she loses her last life when she is just a few points away from clearing the tenth obscene name off the board... and ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYqlSoxG_d4 explodes]]'' into [[{{Irony}} a torrent of profanity just in time for Ross to arrive with Ben.]] The funniest parts are the collective reactions of Ross, Ben, Chandler, and Monica, coupled with the soundtrack switching to an opera in ''French''.
-->'''Phoebe:''' NO! YOU SON OF A B[ITCH, MOTHER FUCKING ASSHOLE!] ''[the soundtrack switches to opera for the part in brackets, while the video switches to slow motion. Ross' jaw drops, and he quickly covers Ben's ears, while Chandler covers his own ears and Monica {{Facepalm}}s]''\\
'''Ross:''' ''PHOEBE!''\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[stops swearing and turns around]'' Oh, hi Ben! NO, DON'T LOOK AT THE MACHINE! ''[covers the screen]''

[[AC:813: TOW Chandler Takes a Bath]]
* When Rachel and Ross discuss potential baby names, Phoebe chimes in with, "If it's a girl, Phoebe. If it's a boy, Phoebo." Later, Rachel asks her OB/GYN, "You could tell us whether itís a boy or a girl? Dayton or Sandrine? Phoebe or Phoebo?" The doctor then gets beeped and leaves the room. On her way out the door, she turns around and adds, "I know it's really not my place, but [[WhoNamesTheirKidDude please don't name your child Phoebo]]."

[[AC:817: TOW the Tea Leaves]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rPtc2ajqYV4 Phoebe's weird date.]]
-->'''Jim:''' I write erotic novels... for children.\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''What?''\\
'''Jim:''' They're ''wildly'' unpopular.\\
'''Phoebe:''' Oh my ''God!''\\
'''Jim:''' Also, you might be interested to know that I have a Ph.D.\\
'''Phoebe:''' Wow, you do?\\
'''Jim:''' Yep, a pretty ''HUUUGE''--\\
'''Phoebe:''' Alright. ''(leaves)''

[[AC:821: TOW the Cooking Class]]
* Rachel jealous over a girl showing interest in Ross.
-->'''Rachel:''' Horny bitch. ''(Ross and the girl look at her. Rachel pretends to play with the toys she's carrying)'' "No, you're a horny bitch!" "No, you're a horny bitch!"

[[AC:822: TOW Rachel is Late]]
* Rachel and Ross are at the OB/GYN, and are having a discussion over the fact that Rachel has been quite irritable because her due date is past already. Ross comes up with this great line.
-->'''Ross''': You know, we should ask the doctor if she even knows how to deliver a baby that's half human, half PURE EVIL!
[[/folder]]

[[folder: Season 9]]
[[AC:902: TOW Emma Cries]]
* Joey tries to apologise to Ross for accidentally making Rachel think he was proposing to her using Ross' grandmother's ring. He just makes things worse:
** Joey doesn't understand the concept of "air quotes". When Ross tells him he's misusing them while apologising for "accidentally" (Ross' own air quotes) proposing to Rachel, Joey simply holds his fingers nearer to his face.
** And immediately after that, Joey tries to get Ross to throw a punch at him to square things for the whole proposal mix-up with Rachel. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUlLX46gss8 It doesn't end well for Ross]].
--->'''Ross:''' '''''WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU''?!!'''
** And the whole time, Gunther is watching what Ross is being put through and smiling.

[[AC:905: TOW Phoebe's Birthday Dinner]]
* This gem when Rachel is panicking about accidentally leaving Emma locked in Ross' apartment.
-->'''Rachel''': What if she jumped out the bassinet?\\
'''Ross''': Can't hold her own head up, but yeah, jumped.\\
'''Rachel''': Oh my God, I left the water running!\\
'''Ross''': Rach, you did not leave the water running. Please, just pull yourself together, okay?\\
'''Rachel''': Ah, did I leave the stove on?\\
'''Ross''': You haven't cooked since 1996!\\
'''Rachel''': Is the window open? Because if there's a window open, a bird could ''fly in there!''\\
'''Ross''': [[SarcasmMode Oh my God, you know what, yeah, I think you're right. I think...listen. A pigeon. No, no wait, no, no, an]] '''[[SarcasmMode EAGLE]]''' [[SarcasmMode flew in. Landed on the stove, and]] ''[[SarcasmMode caught fire!]]'' [[SarcasmMode The baby, seeing this, jumps across the apartment to the mighty bird's aid. The eagle, however, misconstrues this as an act of aggression, and grabs the baby in its talons. Meanwhile the faucet fills the apartment with water. Baby and bird, still ablaze, are locked in a DEATH GRIP,]] ''[[SarcasmMode swirling around the whirlpool that fills the apartment!!]]''
** And Rachel's reaction to this speech is the cherry on a cake.
---> '''Rachel''': ''({{Beat}})'' Boy, you're gonna be sorry if that's true.
** And Rachel's fear of a bird flying into the apartment could be a CallBack to "TOW Phoebe's Husband" way back in Season 2 - where a pigeon really ''did'' fly into the apartment.
* Rachel can't leave Emma at home so she has Ross's mother bring her to the restaurant with them. She stops in the middle of a toast to signal that Emma dropped her sock, leading to...
--> '''Phoebe:''' Oh, for God's sake, Judy, pick up the sock! ''Pick up the sock!'' '''''PICK UP THE SOOOCK!'''''
* And shortly after this she gives her friends a verbal put-down and makes a dramatic exit before calling "Judy, bye!" and getting a drunken wave from her in response.

[[AC:907: TOW Ross' Inappropriate Song]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cc7quH-i_0w Phoebe meets Mike's parents]].
* Joey considers moving into Richard's old apartment, but while over there, he and Chandler find a tape with Monica's name on it.
-->'''Joey:''' Ooh, a tape with a girl's name on it. It's probably a sex tape. Wait a minute, this says "Monica." And this is Richard's apartment. ''[keeps trying to figure out what it means]''\\
'''Chandler:''' Get there faster!\\
''[Joey finally figures it out and screams]''

[[AC:917: TOW the Memorial Service]]
* The episode's A plot revolves around a back and forth between Ross and Chandler editing each other's profiles on the NYU alumni website getting out of hand. It starts with Chandler changing Ross' profile to claim he has sex with dinosaurs (Ross almost seems more offended by the anatomical impossibility of this than by the implication that he is a sexual deviant) and gets funnier from there.
** Chandler tries to take revenge on Ross for editing his profile to claim he was "gay as the day is long".
--->'''Monica''': What are you going to do?\\
'''Chandler''': OH YOU'LL SEE MY FRIEND!
** He writes that Ross died [[NoodleIncident watching blimps]].
--->'''Ross:''' I'm DEAD?!\\
'''Chandler:''' ''(faking sympathy)'' And so young!\\
'''Ross:''' Posting that I died, that ''really'' isn't funny!\\
'''Chandler:''' Well, ''how'' you died was funny.\\
'''Ross:''' Oh, please. "''[[CruelAndUnusualDeath Hit by a blimp?]]"''\\
'''Chandler:''' It kills over ''one'' Americans every year!
** Ross finds that no one cared enough to post anything his supposed death. When Chandler notes that a website isn't the proper venue to express grief, Ross sets up a sudden memorial at Chandler and Monica's apartment to milk some sympathy. Attendance is so bad that the first guy to show up is actually there for the supposedly gay Chandler and thinks Monica is actually a man.
--->'''Ross:''' I'm dead and no one cares?\\
'''Monica:''' I look like a man?\\
'''Chandler:''' Please, one ridiculous problem at a time!\\
'''Ross:''' This isn't ridiculous. Look around. No one's here.\\
'''Chander:''' You gave them one day's notice. Not everyone in our class checks the website every day. And, Monica, it's probably the way you stand!\\
''[Monica adjusts her posture]''
** The one person who does show up for Ross is Kori Weston, an attractive woman that Chandler remembers.
--->'''Chandler:''' Chandler, Chandler Bing. And I'm not gay. I'm not gay at all.\\
'''Monica:''' You are married, though.\\
'''Chandler:''' ''[to Kori]'' Don't listen to him. He's in a really bad mood.

[[AC:918: TOW the Lottery]]
* This gem.
-->'''Monica:''' Hey, you just got in here five minutes ago!\\
'''Ross:''' THREE minutes ago! ...I don't know why that was important.
* After a meal, they break the wishbone and Joey makes a wish. The gang doesn't win the lottery, but Chandler does get offered a new job. Joey says he used his wish for that and Chandler thanks him before saying:
-->'''Chandler:''' Listen, don't tell Monica or she'll rip your heart right out.\\
''[Joey nods]''

[[AC:919: TOW Rachel's Dream]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=on2_ooaUc4Q Chandler and Ross' trip to Vermont]], where Ross tries to take as many of the hotel's amenities as possible. The opening bit with Ross on a sugar high from eating too much maple candy is also a real gem.
-->'''Chandler:''' Look, they are totally ripping us off!\\
'''Ross:''' Dude, don't worry about it, I know how we can make your money back. This is a nice hotel y'know, plenty of amenities, we just load up on those. Like those apples, instead of taking one, um, I take six!\\
'''Chandler:''' Great. At $100 an apple we're there!\\
'''Ross:''' C'mon, y-you get the idea, you know? W-we'll make our money back in no time.\\
'''Chandler:''' Dude, you're shaking!\\
'''Ross:''' I-I think it's the sugar, can you hold the apple?

[[AC:923-24: The One in Barbados]]
* Chandler accidentally infecting Ross' laptop with a virus while looking for porn.
-->'''Ross:''' Nude photos of Anna Kournikova? [[ComicallyMissingThePoint She's never even won a major tournament!]]
* The RunningGag of Monica's hair getting extra volume from the humidity. Phoebe compares her to [[Music/TheSupremes Diana Ross]] and [[Series/SaturdayNightLive Roseanne Rosannadanna]], and by the end of the episode, her hair is sticking out sideways past her shoulders.
-->''[during an ultra competitive ping pong game between Mike and Monica]''\\
'''Chandler:''' You really find this attractive on him?\\
'''Phoebe:''' Oh, yeah! Are y-you telling me you're not even a, a little turned on by Monica right now?\\
''[Chandler looks at Monica, whose hair is sticking ever further out, as she wipes sweat off her forehead with her forearms and then sniffs her underarm]''\\
'''Chandler:''' ... I think this is the first time in our marriage that I've felt like the more attractive one.\\
'''Phoebe:''' All right, c'mon, Mike, you can beat her! Knock that dog off her head!\\
'''Monica:''' ''[misses Mike's shot, handing him another point]'' Ugh! Dammit!\\
'''Phoebe:''' ''[proudly]'' I sleep with him!\\
'''Mike:''' ''[spreads his arms, soaking up Phoebe's adoration]'' Game - point.\\
'''Monica:''' Don't get too cocky! Remember, I won the last one. Oh - by the way, how did that feel, losing to a girl?\\
'''Mike:''' You know, you should really look in the mirror before you call yourself that.

[[folder: Season 10]]
[[AC:1003: TOW Ross' Tan]]
* The A plot in this episode is a ''tour de force'' for David Schwimmer's skill at physical comedy as Ross makes repeated trips to spray tan salons and, through a series of misunderstandings, only gets sprayed on the front of his body every time. His reactions each time after the first are priceless.

[[AC:1004: TOW the Cake]]
* Joey forgets to get Emma a present for her first birthday and decides read a dramatic monologue from one of her books, at first every one seems disapointed and annoyed by this idea. He reduces the entire room to tears. Also counts as a SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome (by showing his skills as a professional) and as a SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}.
* When they discover that they got a penis shaped cake instead of a bunny shaped one, we're treated to this gem.
-->'''Judy Geller''': Jack, look at this.\\
'''Jack Geller''': I know what you're thinking, Judy. The resemblance is uncanny.

[[AC:1005: TOW Rachel's Sister Baby-sits]]
* Joey's attempt at using a thesaurus on his adoption recommendation.
-->'''Chandler''': I don't, uh, understand.\\
'''Joey''': Some of the words are a little too sophisticated for ya?\\
'''Monica''': It doesn't make any sense.\\
'''Joey''': Of course it does, it's smart! I used the the-saurus!\\
'''Chandler''': ''On every word?!''\\
'''Joey''': Yep!\\
'''Monica''': Alright, what was this sentence originally?\\
'''Joey''': Oh, "They are warm, nice people with big hearts."\\
'''Chandler''': And that became "[[PurpleProse They are humid prepossessing homosapiens with full-sized aortic pumps?]]"\\
'''Joey''': Yeah, yeah. And hey, I really mean it, dude.\\
'''Monica''': Hey, Joey, I don't think we can use this.\\
'''Joey''': Why not?\\
'''Monica''': Well, because you signed it "Baby Kangaroo Tribbiani".

[[AC:1006: TOW Ross' Grant]]
* The whole incident with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1nfnMUmqiA Gladys]], Phoebe's terrifying artistic creation involving half a mannequin sticking out of a frame. Mike wants her to get rid of it, and Monica's attempts to cover up her shock at the picture lead to Phoebe giving Gladys to her as a gift. Monica tries giving Gladys to Rachel, but when Phoebe walks in on them fighting over which of them gets stuck with it and they shift gears to fighting over which of them gets to keep it, she offers Monica a similar half-mannequin horror called Glynnis.
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTokqeL7sOU Joey's]] {{Japandering}} ad. He knows Chandler lied about watching the tape of his commercials because he didn't immediately start poking fun at him for this ad.
-->'''Joey:''' ''[in commercial]'' Ichiban! Lipstick... for men!

[[AC:1007: TOW the Home Study]]
* The Ross-Rachel subplot in this episode sees Ross taking Emma to the playground despite Rachel's bad memories of getting her hair caught in the chain on a swingset when she was four years old. More classic David Schwimmer physical comedy ensues when Ross repeatedly stands in the wrong place and gets kicked by people on swings - first a young boy, then by Rachel trying to overcome her fear of swings.

[[AC:1011: TOW the Stripper Cries]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZmQqzQV0gg Joey on]] ''[[Series/{{Pyramid}} Donnymid]]''.
** Inevitably, he proves to be completely useless as a cluegiver and especially as a guesser. The first word is "cream":
--->'''Gene:''' You put this in your coffee.\\
'''Joey:''' A spoon! Your hands! Your face!\\
'''Gene:''' It's white.\\
'''Joey:''' Paper! Snow! A ghost!
** And then the new word is 'mayonnaise'.
--->'''Gene:''' You put this on a sandwich.\\
'''Joey:''' Salami! Anchovies! Jam!\\
'''Gene:''' It's white.\\
'''Joey:''' Paper! Snow! A ghost!\\
'''Gene:''' It's made from eggs.\\
'''Joey:''' Chickens!?
** And later on:
---> '''Joey:''' Why would there be a ghost in my fridge?

[[AC:1012: TOW Phoebe's Wedding]]
* Joey has been asked to walk Phoebe down the aisle, thus filling in as the "dad". He attempts to make small-talk with Mike's parents at the rehearsal dinner:
-->'''Joey:''' Ah, our little ones are growing up fast, huh?\\
'''Mike's Father:''' How's that?\\
'''Joey:''' I mean on the one hand you're happy for them, but on the other hand it's hard to let go.\\
'''Mike's Father:''' ''Who in God's name are you?''\\
'''Joey:''' Hey, I'm not too fond of you either, okay, buddy? But I'm just trying to be nice for the kids!
* And later, when Monica (the wedding planner) is trying to tell Phoebe how to give her speech...in the middle of the speech, this is the final straw:
-->'''Phoebe:''' Okay, okay, I, okay, I--'''[[SuddenlyShouting MONICA I CAN'T DO IT LIKE THIS!!]]''' This is MY wedding! Okay, I don't want this ''(mimes Monica twirling her hands)'' or ''this'' ''(mimes Monica tapping her watch)'' or THIS ''(mimes Monica going "cut!")'', okay?! I just wanted a ''simple wedding'', ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext WHERE MY FIANCE COULD GO TO THE BATHROOM]] '''[[ItMakesSenseInContext ANYTIME HE WANTS!!!]]'''''

[[AC:1013: TOW Joey Speaks French]]
* Rachel's dad recovering from a heart attack.
-->'''Leonard''': Hello, Ross. Get anymore of my daughters pregnant?
-->'''Ross''': No, no, just the one.
* Joey trying to learn French. Yes, it makes him super dumb, [[{{Flanderization}} more than he ever was]], but his interactions with Phoebe the teacher, the voice on the self-learning tape and the director of the play are hilarious.

[[AC:1014: TOW Princess Conseula]]
* Ross complains of Rachel meeting [[TheBusCameBack Mark]] again, and the two of them going out to dinner as friends (it is eventually revealed that he is now HappilyMarried with newborn twins). We get this from Chandler:
-->'''Chandler:''' It's seven years ago. My time machine works!

[[AC:1016: TOW Rachel's Going Away Party]]
* Rachel says goodbye to everyone individually, reducing them all to tears. Except Joey.
-->''[Rachel & Joey are on the balcony, everyone else is inside watching.]''
-->'''Ross:''' God, I can't believe she saved me for last. Why are they taking so long?
-->'''Phoebe:''' I dunno, but Joey seems to taking it surprisingly well.
-->''[As Rachel heads back inside, Joey turns and starts to get ready to jump off the balcony. Rachel pulls him back when everyone else runs forward to stop Joey.]''

[[AC:1017-18: The Last One]]
* Chandler and Monica get a surprise about the child they are adopting just as the mother is about to give birth:
-->'''Doctor:''' You know [[spoiler:it's twins]], right?\\
'''Chandler:''' [''both he and Monica are thunderstruck''] [[SarcasmMode Oh, yeah! These are the faces of two people in the know!]]\\
''[...]''\\
'''Monica''': Chandler, you're panicking!\\
'''Chandler''': Uh huh! JOIN ME, won't you?!
* Ross, in a mad dash to stop Rachel from moving to Paris, runs to the ticket counter at the airport and sprints through the twisty turny roped off line.
* Monica handing the mover some money to get rid of the ceramic dog she's [[RunningGag always loathed]].
-->'''Monica:''' If it fell off the truck, it wouldn't be the worst thing.
