    • Phoebe: Chandler, your being here is the best Christmas present I could have ever imagined. Chandler: (Flattered) Aw. Phoebe: Now give me my real gift.

    • Chandler: Look, you're a really nice person... ham stealing and adultery aside. But what I have with my wife is pretty great, so nothing is ever gonna happen between us. Wendy: Okay, let me ask you something: if what you and your wife have is so great, then why are you spending Christmas with me?

    • Chandler: Whoa-ho, back off, Missy! Wendy: (Laughs) Missy? Chandler: I don't know, I'm not used to girls making passes at me! Wait a minute... am I sexy in Oklahoma?

    • Joey: Ah, wait, is Wendy the runner-up Miss Oklahoma? Monica: What? Chandler: Well, she, she didn't win... Monica: Alright, well, maybe I should let you and the second prettiest girl in Oklahoma get back to work. Chandler: Well, second prettiest that year. I mean, of all the girls in Oklahoma, she's probably... Rachel: Oh Chandler, stop talking!

    • Monica: So is it horrible? Is everybody working really hard? Chandler: Ah, well no, it's just, uh, me and Wendy. Monica: Wendy? That sounds like a girl's name. Chandler: It is. Did I... not tell you about her? Monica: Um, um, about the time you told me about New Year's Eve.
