Joey: Okay, okay. Look, look, if you're going to be moving in with him, I feel that it's my responsibility to tell you the truth about him, okay? He is a terrible roommate. Terrible! He forgets to, um... Oh! Always-- Always, uh... Who am I kidding? He's the best roommate ever! (hugs Chandler).

  • Ross: See, once you know the stories, it's not that bad. First marriage, wife's hidden sexuality, not my fault. Second marriage, said the wrong name at the alter, a little my fault.

  • Monica: So, I told Rachel that it's just gonna be the two of us. Chandler: Oh, yeah? How'd she take it? Monica: Really well. Surprisingly well. Yeah, she didn't cry, she wasn't angry or sad. Chandler: And you're upset because you didn't make your best friend cry? Monica: I mean, all I'm asking for is a little emotion, is that too much to ask after six years? I mean, what are Rachel and I not as close as you guys? I mean, do we not have as much fun? I mean, don't I deserve a few tears? I mean, when you told Joey he cried his eyes out.

I'm just thinking about how it's the end of an era. Rachel: Oh, alright. But I gotta say, I don't think six years counts as an era. Monica: An era counts as a significant period of time.

I mean, aren't you gonna miss me at all?

Just let me finish, okay? This isn't something that we just impulsively decided to do in Vegas. This is something that we both really want. And it is going to happen. Rachel: It is? Really? Monica: Yeah, sweetie. Rachel (getting upset): You mean, we're not going to live together anymore? Monica: No. Rachel: Oh, my God. I'm going to miss you so much. Monica: I'm going to miss you! Rachel: It's the end of an era. Monica: I know!
