    • Dr. Horton: How do you feel?
      Phoebe: A little nervous. Maybe it'll help if I picture the audience in their underwear.
      Dr. Horton: No, don't do that. That's kind of why the last guy got fired.

    • Erika: Oh, Drake, isn't it amazing? Joey: Yeah it is... what? Erika: Well, here we sit, devil may care, just a little while ago you were reattaching someone's spinal cord. Joey: Yeah, that was a tricky one. In reality, that operation takes like, over 10 hours, but they only showed it for two minutes. Erika: Who's they? Joey: No one.

    • Joey: You deserve much better than me, Erika. You deserve to be with the real Drake. He's the one you fell in love with. Go to Salem, find him. He's the guy for you.

    • Joey: (To Erika) I'm not Drake. Ross: That's right, he's not Drake. He's Hans Ramoray, Drake's evil twin. Erika: Is this true? 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: And you left the toilet seat up, you bastard! (Throws water in Joey's face)

    • (Watching Days of Our Lives on TV) Dr. Horton: (On TV) You're the only one who can save her Drake. Dr. Ramoray: (On TV) Dammit, I'm a doctor. I'm not God. Ross: Well, there goes my whole belief system.

    • Phoebe's Songs: "Grandma" Now, Grandma's a person who everyone likes, She bought you a train and a bright, shiny bike.

Now, your mom and your dad said she moved to Peru, But the truth is she died and some day you will too. Lalala LAlalala LAlalala LAlalala La La La La Lalala LAlalala LAlalala LAlalala La La La La "Another Thing You Don't Wanna Do" 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. 'Cause that's another thing That you don't wanna do Everybody! That's another thing That you don't wanna do. "The Cow in the Meadow" Oh, the cow in the meadow goes moo, Oh, 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.

    • Phoebe: What do you want me to be? Like some stupid, big, like, purple dinosaur? Rob: I'm not saying you have to be Barney. Phoebe: Who's Barney? Barney is a purple Tyrannosaurus Rex who stars on Barney and Friends, a popular children's television show produced in the United States, mainly aimed at preschoolers.

    • Ross: You're never gonna believe this. Chandler: Let me guess. Ross: What? What? Some Weebles actually do fall down? Huh? A stitch in time now only saves seven? What do you got? Chandler: Well...never mind. Weebles are a line of children's toys from Playskool. Shaped like eggs with a weight at the bottom, they wobble when pushed, but never fall completely over, hence the name. "The switch in time that saved nine" was the name given by the press to the apparent sudden shift by Justice Owen J. Roberts from the conservative wing of the Supreme Court to the liberal wing in the case West Coast Hotel Co. v. Parrish. It is a common phrase used today meaning if you do something small today, it will stop the problem from getting bigger and causing you more work later.

    • Chandler: He thinks he can. He thinks he can. Oh, what the hell. He can. Chandler was reading The Little Engine That Could.

    • Ross: Sometimes I wonder if I did the right thing. You know, giving him away. Rachel: Oh, Ross, you had to. I mean he was humping everything in sight. I mean I have a Malibu Barbie that will no longer be wearing white to her wedding. Barbie is a best-selling doll produced by Mattel.

    • Joey: Hey, hey, check it out! Guess what I got! Chandler: Rhythm? This is a reference to the song "I've Got Rhythm." The song was also one of Gene Kelly's musical numbers in 1951 movie An American In Paris.
