    • Michelle: Ross, you didn't tell me you were a doctor! Rachel: What, what, wait a minute! You haven't even told her you were a doctor yet? How long have you known her, like, an hour? Michelle: Actually about an hour and a half. Ross: I told you it wasn't long, but there is an amazing connection between us. Michelle: You feel that too? Oh, I thought that was just me! Ross: Are you kidding? Michelle: Hey, do you want to go away this weekend? Ross: We'll see. Rachel: Okay, Ross, what's going on here? Are we just bringing strange women back to the apartment now? Ross: I don't know. Are we just kissing guys on balconies? Rachel: How do you know about that? Ross: Through the magic of sight!

    • Rachel: (About Gavin's present) There is a thin line between love and hate, and it turns out that line is a scarf.

    • Chandler: Okay, you know how most kids get their allowance from mowing the lawn or taking out the garbage? Well I earned mine by plucking the eyebrows of my father and his "business" partners.

    • Chandler: (About Monica's showing dress) Are those my wife's nipples?

    • Ross: This is great. Rachel's gonna keep kissing guys until she finds the one she wants and I'm gonna die alone. Chandler: By drowning or...?!
