    • Chandler: So, are you really going to go out with that nurse man? Monica: Well, if you and I are just goofin' around I thought why not just goof around with him? Chandler: Well, I don't know if you've ever looked up the term goofing around in the dictionary, well I have. And the technical definition is two friends, who care a lot about each other and have amazing sex, and just wanna spend more time together. Y'know, but if you have this new dictionary that gets you mad at me... then we have to get you my original dictionary. I am so bad at this. Monica: I think you're better than you think you are. Chandler: Really? So, if-- Monica: Know when to stop. Chandler: You know, I sensed that I should stop.

    • Monica: Listen, I think there's something that you should know. Chandler: Oh, is this about you dating the nurse? Yeah, Joey already told me and I am so, so fine. You and I, we're just... nothing, we're-- Uh, goofing around. Monica: Actually, I was going to tell you that I was going to get out of it. But, um, hey, if we're just goofing around, maybe I will go out with him. Chandler: Fine, maybe I will, too.

    • Frank Jr. (about Joey): What's with him? Phoebe: Oh, sympathy pains. I thought it was really sweet at first, but now I just think he's trying to steal my thunder.

    • Nurse: Now which of you is the father? Phoebe: Oh, no. None of them are the father. The father is my brother. Nurse: Okay. Rachel: I'm so gonna miss watching you freak people out like that.

    • Rachel: Phoebe, you can't keep one of these babies! Phoebe: Well, you don't know! Rachel: Yes, I do! Frank and Alice are going to want to keep all of them! Phoebe: Maybe not. Three kids is a handful, they could be looking to unload one of them. I'd just hate if I didn't get one because I didn't ask!

    • The 100th episode is significant in that the show Friends could now be syndicated. 100 episodes is the minimum number required for syndication (the daily showing of episodes on subscribing channels). Royalties from syndication provide a substantial added income for those involved in the original production.

    • TJ Thyneplays the young doctor (actually first year resident), who is belittled by Phoebe for being too young to deliver her baby. Thyne would later play another doctor on TV, as Dr. Jack Hodgins on TV's Bones. Granted, Dr. Hodgins is anentomologist, but still a doctor.

    • International Episode Titles: Czech Republic: Stoprvní (One Hundredth)

    • This episode is one of the few titles that doesn't begin with "The One Where..." or "The One With..." These episodes are: "The One After the Super Bowl (1)" "The One After the Super Bowl (2)" "The One At the Beach" "The One Hundredth" "The One in Vegas (1)" "The One in Vegas (2)" "The One After Vegas" "The One On the Last Night" "The One That Could Have Been (1)" "The One That Could Have Been (2)" "The One After "I Do"" "The One in Barbados (1)" "The One in Barbados (2)" "The One After Joey and Rachel Kiss" "The Last One (1)" "The Last One (2)"

    • Lisa Kudrow was actually not pregnant in this episode. She had her own baby on May 7, 1998, so at this time her belly was fake.

    Trivia (11)

    • Goof: When Phoebe tells Rachel she wants to keep one of the babies, Rachel's chair is right next to Phoebe's bed. Then the camera angle changes to Phoebe, but you can see Rachel's arms, indicating that she didn't move. However, when the camera goes back to Rachel, her chair is a little far from the bed, so that she has to get up and walk to be next to Phoebe.

    • Factual Error: When Phoebe's doctor requests the TV be turned on, the Happy Days theme is playing, and the doctor mentions it is the episode where Fonzie plays the bongos. The episode mentioned is "Fonzie Joins the Band" from the second season. However, that Happy Days theme was not used until the series' third season. During the first two seasons of Happy Days the opening theme was "Rock Around the Clock" performed by Bill Haley & His Comets. (Although the DVD release of the second season of Happy Days replaced "Rock Around the Clock" with the Happy Days theme song, it shouldn't air that way in syndication.)

    • Goof: At the beginning when Phoebe asks someone to call Frank and Alice, and her mom, Ross searches his pockets. But when the camera angle changes, his hands are down by his side.

    • Goof: When Phoebe asks for a minute alone with the triplets, the camera angle shows a closeup of the babies and the two girls are right next to each other. When the shot changes, the middle baby is positioned much higher.

    • Factual error: When Joey is in pain, he grabs his back. However, the doctor says that the kidney stones are close to the bladder. His pain would actually be in the groin area.

    • In this episode they are numerous references to Happy Days, a TV show about a family and their friend Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzerelli living in America in the 1950s and '60s. Dr. Harad: And also I love Fonzie. Chandler: Did he just say he loves Fonzie? Dr. Harad: Oh, you know, Fonzie dated triplets. Chandler: This Fonzie person you keep referring to is that another doctor? Dr. Harad: Oh no, no, no. Fonzie is the nickname of Arthur Fonzerelli. The Fonz. Ross: To be fair, he doesn't seem to be impersonating Fonzie-- Phoebe: What are you doing? Why are you defending him? Just get me another doctor. One who isn't crazy and one who isn't Fonzie. Ross: This is Dr. Oberman. He has no strong feelings about Fonzie or any of the Happy Days gang. Dr. Harad: They have the honor of being born on the Fonz's half-birthday. Phoebe: Happy birthday. Dr. Harad: Just to clarify, I'm not Fonzie. Dr. Harad: Ha ha ha. Oh Fonzie. Dr. Harad: Fonzie met Mork. Mork froze Fonzie. Rachel: Yes, but Fonzie was already cool. So he wasn't hurt, right? Dr. Harad: I need a clamp, a sterile towel, and channel 31. Phoebe: What is that? (The theme to Happy Days starts playing) Phoebe: Oh my God! Dr. Harad: Oh, no, no, no! It's a good one. Fonzie plays the bongos.

    • Rachel: You know who I always liked? Mork. Dr. Harad: Fonzie met Mork. Mork froze Fonzie. Mork is a character from the TV show Mork & Mindy. Fonzie actually appeared on a show with Mork called The Mork & Mindy/Laverne & Shirley/Fonz Hour.

    • Phoebe: Shhh! Doogie, shhh! When Phoebe calls the young resident Doogie, she's referring to the title character of the show Doogie Howser, M.D. which starred Neil Patrick Harris. Doogie was a child prodigy who went to college at age ten and became a doctor when he was still a teenager.
