I wrote that one as a joke for you! Tag: A joke they would appreciate? Rachel: I'm thinkin' no. Tag: What did you say? Rachel: Um, I said I thought you were a good kisser, and uh, and that I like your teeny-tiny tushy. Tag: No, not my tushy. Rachel: Well, it gets worse. When asked if you take initiative I wrote, "Yes, he was able to unhook my bra with minimal supervision," and under Problems with Performance I wrote, "Dear God, I hope not," and then, uh, then I drew a little smiley face, and then a small pornographic sketch.

    • Joey: (Watching the discussion between Monica and a neighbor) Hey Chandler, do we know that lady? Chandler: Maybe. Isn't she the woman who lives below you and has sex really loud?

    • Phoebe: Oh, my God! My first bike! Thank you for the best present I've ever gotten. Ross: (Stunned by the compliment) You're welcome. Phoebe: (Starts to leave, then stops) Oh, and Chandler's about to cry. Chandler: (About to cry) Am not!
