    • Ross: (About Chandler cleaning the apartment) Look, Chandler, Monica is really weird about this kind of stuff. Believe me, I lived with her for sixteen years. She is going to freak out. Oh my God, she's going to sit on you.

    • Rachel: Pheebs, Monica tripped me, I don't think I can ever run again, ever! Phoebe: Why? Why would you do that? Monica: I don't know. Rachel I'm, I'm sorry that I hurt your ankles. Rachel: Ankle. Monica: We'll see.

    • Ross: Uh, they don't like it when you correct their grammar. Chandler: And they don't like it when you explain why your jokes are funny. Ross: They don't like it when you keep asking them if they like you. Chandler: Man, I'm so lucky I have Monica. Ross: I'm never gonna find love again.

    • Chandler: Okay, is this lamp in the right place? Ross: Who cares? I repel women. (Monica opens the door) Chandler: No, no, no, no, no, no! You can't come in here. Ross is naked! Monica: What?! Ross: What?! Chandler: I couldn't say that I was naked because she's allowed to see me naked. Ross: Why does anyone have to be naked? Monica: Why is Ross naked? Ross: I had to... show Chandler something. Monica: Naked? Ross: Yeah, I uh... I guess I have a, uh... a guy problem. Monica: Is it the same thing that Chandler had? Chandler: Look, just come back later. We'll get everything squared away and you can come back later. Monica: Okay. Hey, listen, there's still some of Chandler's medicine left under the sink in the bathroom. Bye. Chandler: Bye-bye. Thank God. Ross: Dude, what'd you have?

    • Joey: Look, I need your help, okay? I have to do something to repel this woman. Wait a minute, wait a minute. You guys repel women all the time! Ross: Hey, I've been married three times. (Chandler claps) Joey: No, no, no, no, no! I've seen it happen. You get a rapport going with a woman but somehow you manage to kill it. Time after time after time after time. What's your secret? Ross: Look, we do not repel women, okay?

    Allusions (2)

    • Chandler: You walked up to that girl you liked and you could not stop talking about the Irish Potato Famine. The Irish Potato Famine occured between 1845 and 1851. In Ireland, it was called the Great Hunger. The Irish relied heavily on potatoes as a food source. During the famine, there was an outbreak of potato blight, a fungus that made potatoes rot and become inedible. Thousands of people died from starvation. There were also fever epidemics because starvation makes peoples' immune systems more vulnerable to disease. Thousands more people fled the country and emigrated to places like England, the United States and Canada.

    • Rachel: You guys, I'm telling you, when she runs, she looks like a cross between Kermit the Frog and the Six Million Dollar Man. Ross: Monica had such a crush on him. She used to kiss his poster every night before she went to bed. Rachel: I used to do that, too! Monica: Did you also have his album "It's Not Easy Being Green?" Rachel: (Realizing she was referring to Kermit the Frog) Oh, Mon! Monica: So, Phoebe runs weird, huh? Kermit the Frog is a famous character from Jim Henson's The Muppet Show. "It's Not Easy Being Green" is a song that Kermit sings on the show. The Six Million Dollar Man is a TV show from the 1970s starring Lee Majors. After an accident astronaut Steve Austin, played by Lee Majors, has an operation that costs 6 million dollars, making him the world's first Bionic man. After the operation he is very strong, can run really fast etc. (However, it looks very funny when he runs.)
