Quotes (20)

  • 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...?!

  • Chandler: Hey it's the most eligible man in New York. How's the moving on going? Ross: Not well. I went on the subway again and someone did sit on my hand, but that person was neither female nor wearing pants. Chandler: Well maybe you're going about this the wrong way. You know I mean think about it: single white male, divorced three times, two illegitimate children. The personal ad writes itself... Ross: That's funny... Do you think you'll ever work again? Chandler: What are you doing? You know I can only dish it out!

  • Ross: Yeah! Yeah! Okay! Sure! Look! Can we... can we talk about what happened here last night? Chandler: Sure! Just give me a second to get all huffy and weird like you! Do you believe that who ever did something over here last night did what they did or didn't do... I mean come on!

  • Joey: Hey! Rachel: Hi. Can Emma and I live here for a while? Joey: Ha, oh, of course. Rachel: Thank you... Your eyebrows look weird.
