Nah, you won't, but I'll be back in two minutes.

  • Ross: And then she said it was the perfect way to say goodbye. Joey: Oh, my God! What did you say? Ross: Nothing! What do you say to that? Phoebe: Ross, you've got to tell her how you feel! Ross: No way! Joey: You can't just give up! Is that what a dinosaur would do? Ross: What? Joey: Dude, I'm just trying to speak your language.

  • Phoebe: So, did you talk to Rachel? Ross: No, and I'm not going to. Phoebe: What? Joey: Why not? Ross: Because she's just going to shoot me down. You guys saw what happened with Gunther. That did not look like fun. Phoebe: How can you compare yourself to Gunther? I mean, sure, he's sexy in a more obvious way. You have a relationship with her, you slept together last night. Ross: Yeah, and she still wants to go! It's pretty clear where she is.

  • Phoebe: So, you just let her go? Ross: (Crushed) Yeah. Joey: Hey, maybe that's for the best. Ross: Yeah? Joey: Yeah. Look, you gotta think about last night the way she does, okay? You know, maybe, maybe sleeping together was the perfect way to say goodbye. Phoebe: But now she'll never know how he feels. Joey: But maybe that's okay, you know? Maybe it is better this way. I mean, now, now you can move on. I mean, you've been trying to for so long, maybe now that you're on different continents... (Asking Phoebe) right? Maybe now you can actually do it. You know, you can finally get over her. Ross: Yeah, that's true. Except, I don't wanna get over her. Joey: What? Ross: I don't. I wanna be with her! Joey: (Smiling happily) Really? Ross: Yeah. I'm gonna go after her.

  • Chandler: (About the twins) Okay, what do you say we keep one and just, like, have an option on the other one? Monica: We can't split them up. Chandler: Why not? We could give each of them half a medallion, and then years later, they'll find each other and be reunited. I mean, that's a great day for everybody. Chandler was referring to the movie The Parent Trap in which identical twins, both played by Hayley Mills, are separated at birth and reunited at summer camp. They discover the truth through a locket that was split in half and given to both girls.

  • Chandler: Monica, we are not ready to have two babies. Monica: That doesn't matter! We have waited so long for this. I don't care if it's two babies. I don't care if it's three babies! I don't care if the entire cast of Eight is Enough comes out of there! We are taking them home, because they are our children! Eight is Enough was an American television show about a Californian family raising eight children.
