    • Ross: Ugh. Well, we're just gonna have to jump. Now, we're gonna have to make sure to land to the right of that patch of ice, okay? Not hit the dumpster on the other side and, uh, and try to avoid that, that weird brownish red stuff in the middle. So, when you get down there... you go up to the roof and you let me in. Joey: Oh whoa, whoa wait a minute! I have to do it? Ross: Yeah! Oh yeah, you'll be fine! It, it'll be, uh, just like bungee jumping. Ya know? But instead of bouncing back up you, you won't. Joey: What if I smack my head on the concrete? Ross: Well, I'm gonna lie to you Joey, it's a possibility.

    • Joey: Oh my, how much do you weigh Ross? Ross: I prefer not to answer that right now. I'm still carrying a little holiday weight.

    • Rachel: (Referring to the lost file) Is this one of your jokes that I don't get? Tag: Name one. Rachel: Like that one where you put the phone in your pants! (Tag laughs hysterically)

    • Rachel: (About Tag's picture) Ooh! And who's this little chickie? A little young for you, Tag? Tag: That's my sister.

    • Chandler: (Turning the light on) Where's that book you're reading, with the two women on the cover who are ice-skating and wearing the big hats with the flowers, because every time I look at it, I'm just... (Pretends to snore) Monica: It's in the living room, where there is also a light, and no one will kick you in the shin. Chandler: What? Ow!
