  • Quotes (16)

    • Rachel: You have got to get over this Joey thing, okay? I never really wanted to marry Joey, okay? Ross: Okay. Rachel: You know what I really really want? Ross: What, Rach? Rachel: I wanna sleep, I wanna eat, I wanna take a shower, I mean before she wakes up and we gotta do this all over again. Ross: Right. Rachel: I mean, I got news for you mister. Emma? Not easy. Ross: Well, that's what I'm here for.

    • Joey: (About Rachel saying she'd marry him) Come on, Ross, that didn't mean anything! She just had the baby, she was all freaked out about doing it alone, she would have said yes to anybody. Ross: Yeah, that's what she said. Joey: So? Ross: So I don't wanna be just anybody.

    • Chandler: You know how people say that Tulsa is the Paris of Oklahoma? Monica: What? Who says that? Chandler: People who've never ever been to Paris.

    • Joey: Where's Ross? Rachel: He's downstairs getting the rest of the stuff out of the cab. Joey: Is he still mad at us? Rachel: Well, you more than me, but he can't stay too mad at me. I mean, I just had his baby. Joey: That's not fair! I can't do that.

    • Ross: You said you'd marry Joey? Rachel: Okay, you have to realize, I was exhausted, I was emotional. I would have said yes to anybody. Like that time you and I got married! (Pause) I'm not helping. Ross: So you said yes to him, and you just had our baby? Rachel: That is right, and traditionally the daddy is supposed to give the mommy a present but I am prepared to let that go. Ross: So when I came in here to see if you wanted to maybe start things up again, you were engaged to my best friend. Rachel: Well... Really? I thought Chandler was your best friend. Ross: Well, Chandler's my oldest friend, but Joey's my-- No! Ah! (He points at Rachel.)

    Notes (3)

    • International Episode Title: France: Celui qui acceptait sa mutation (The One Who Accepted To Be Transferred)

    • This is one of the few episodes that doesn't have any scenes in Monica's apartment.

    • This episode runs 24:07 on DVD (a typical sitcom runs about 22:00).

    Trivia (8)

    • Continuity: We never see the giant stuffed gorilla in a tutu again. It's probably stored in the same place as Chandler and Joey's gaudy friendship bracelets, Monica's dollhouse, Joey's drum set and Chandler and Monica's Ms. Pac-man arcade game. In fact, the only oddball item introduced in an episode that still remained was the giant dog that Ross bought back from the repo men for Joey and Joey re-gifted to Chandler. Of course, it was relegated to the balcony, which is pretty close to simply disappearing. We don't want to even talk about the chick and the duck.

    • Goof: When Rachel unsuccessfully tries swinging Emma from side to side to stop the crying, Rachel says Emma has been crying for hours. The baby started crying after Ross ran out to buy more diapers. Yet Ross still hasn't returned.

    • Goof: Before Rachel wakes up Emma, she is asleep wearing a pink hat. However when the camera angle changes, and Emma is wearing a white hat.

    • Trivia: In this episode, the only one who can stop Emma from crying is her Aunt Monica. Ironically in "The One with the Baby on the Bus," Monica is the only person near whom her nephew Ben always cries.

    • Goof: Rachel's hair is several inches longer than at the end of the previous episode although it is supposed to be a direct continuation.
