  • Quotes (9)

    • Chandler: (When the gang finds out about the fire) What are you smiling about? What is so funny? Joey: The part I want to audition for is a fireman, this is so meant to be!

    • Joey: Hey, Chandler, you know that girl you went to college with who became a movie director? Chandler: Oh, yeah, Dana Keystone. She was in my movement class. Phoebe: What's a movement class? Monica: It's Chandler's way of pretending he didn't take mime.

    • Ross: Hey! I just got my teacher evaluations! Check out what this one student wrote: "I loved Dr. Geller's class. Mind blowing lectures! Dr. Geller, you are definitely the hottie of the paleontology department." Chandler: Ahh, Hotties of the Paleontology Department, there's a big selling calendar, eh?

    • Monica: All right, well, why don't I go out with an ex-boyfriend and do Joey a favor? Joey: Hey, you wanna do Joey a favor, maybe you go out with Joey.

    • Ross: Do you want to go get a drink? Elizabeth: Oh, I can't. Ross: Why, do you have some studying to do? Elizabeth: No, I have some turning 21 to do.

    Notes (4)

    • International Episode Titles: Czech Republic: Jak Ross chodil se studentkou (As Ross Dated a Student)

    • This is the first appearance of Alexandra Holden as Elizabeth Stevens. Elizabeth was in 5 episodes of Friends.

    • When auditioning for the part of Elizabeth, one of the producers causally asked if Alexandra Holden was related to William Holden. It turns out she is related, albeit distantly.

    • This episode runs 22:08 on DVD (a typical sitcom runs about 22:00).

    Trivia (13)

    • Continuity: When Phoebe is reading, she has her feet on Monica's couch. However, in "The One with Rachel's Other Sister" Monica grounded Chandler by saying "no shoes on the furniture."

    • Trivia: The prickly yellow fruit that no one (including Monica) could identify, is a Kiwano Horned Melon from Africa. A member of the cucumber family (not Kiwi), it is edible, tasting like a cross between banana and lemon. Since it is a tropical fruit, it should never be refrigerated. (Monica at least knew that much about it.)

    • Continuity: One of the hallmarks of the series is that the friends are frequently hanging out in one another's houses (and the coffee shop). This episode never makes it clear why Phoebe did not simply hang out at Joey's or elsewhere if Monica was driving her crazy; she only needed to be at Monica's apartment to sleep.

    • Trivia: This is the second time Joey auditions for the newest Al Pacino movie. The first time was in "The One with the Butt".

    • Goof: When Chandler is at dinner with Dana, his spoon keeps changing positions between shots.
