    • Chandler: Alright, should we just get married? Should we do it? All the signs are telling us to do it. Monica: I'm sick of the signs. It's too fast, I'm happy with the way things are. Chandler: Me too. Monica: I don't want things to change, do you? Chandler: No! Monica: Alright, then! Then nothing changes and everything's great and everything stays the same. Now you go unpack because it's been three days and it's driving me insane. Chandler: Jeez, relax. It's not like we're marr-- ahhh!

    • Rachel: The bottom line, Ross, is that we cannot stay married. Ross: I don't know if that's true. Rachel: Okay, yeah but it is! Ross: Okay, you know what this is? This is a difference of opinion. And when that happens in a marriage-- Rachel: Oh, Ross, come on, this is not a marriage! This is the world's worst hangover!

    • Monica: What are you guys gonna do? Rachel: Well, I guess we just find a divorce lawyer. Chandler: Well, I think-- I think Ross already has one. Monica: Yeah, that guy's finally gonna be able to put in that pool. Chandler: Now, this one's free, right? Because you paid for the first two, so you get the third one for free.

    • Chandler: Are gonna talk about what you guys did last night or... ? Rachel: What do you mean last night? N-Nothing happened last night. Phoebe: Uh huh. Ross invited us all to watch. Rachel (hits Ross): What is the matter with you? Monica: Rach, we weren't gonna miss our friends getting married. Rachel (gasps): Who got married? Chandler: You did.

    • Monica: How do I tell Chandler that it's too soon? It's gonna break his heart. He's gonna think I don't love him anymore. Phoebe: Well, you don't. Monica: Yes, I do. Phoebe: Good. Good. I was just testing you. Monica (to Chandler who sits down): Oh, hi. Hi. We were just talking about bacon. Phoebe: No, we were talking about tennis. (to Monica) Tennis is more believable.

    Notes (11)

    • Much has been made of the fact that the "permanent" writing on Ross and Rachel's faces is suddenly gone when they come down to breakfast. On the Season 5 DVD there is a special on the making of this episode in which the problem is discussed. The writers struggled with it, including filming scenes in which Ross is at breakfast covering the remaining traces of the writing with makeup. Ultimately, however, these scenes were deleted because they distracted from the main story line andbecause the show was running long.

    • For the first five seasons, Monica had a black KitchenAid classic stand mixer on her kitchen counter. Beginning this season, it is yellow.

    • International Episode Titles: Czech Republic: Co bylo po Las Vegas (What Was after the Las Vegas)

    • Rick Pasqualone also played the Croupier in "The One in Vegas (2)."

    • As a result of Courteney Cox's name change, the font for all names in the opening credits is smaller. "Courteney Cox-Arquette" would not fit across the screen in the font size used for the previous seasons.
