  • Another great installment of Friends! I just saw this episode for about the 10th time last night on Channel 4 (UK Channel) and it still makes me laugh!

    • Ross: I’m just being supportive. Supportive of you and this whole trip, and, and-- What, what is, uh, what’s this? Elizabeth: It’s a bathing suit? Ross: To wear in front of people? Elizabeth: Is that supportive? Ross: Is this?!

    • Sebastian: Actually I, uh, I gotta get going. Give me a call sometime. Rachel: Oh, but ya know, no, you didn’t give me your phone number. Sebastian: Okay! See you later! Chandler: Turns out he is kinda funny.

    • Joey: (To Rachel, about the fridge) Alright, now, you know that the A.T.M. will only let you take out $300 at a time. So I'll take a check for the other 100. Rachel: You're joking, right? Joey: Of course I'm joking. I don't take checks. Rachel: Thank God you're pretty.

    • Rachel: Hey, Joey, how you doing? Joey: Great ... roomie. Rachel: Huh. Yeah, I guess we are roommates now. Joey: Yeah. Now that you bring it up uh, our fridge is broken. We have to get a new one. I checked around and your half is $400. Thanks a lot, Rach. Rachel: I'm not paying for half of that. I'm only staying here until my apartment gets fixed. Joey: Look, Rach, my parents bought this fridge just after I was born, okay? Now, I have never had a problem with it. Then you show up and it breaks. What does that tell you? Rachel: That refrigerators don't live as long as people.

    • Ross: You don't understand. Elizabeth was about to ask me to go on a trip with her. Is that taking it slow? I'm not ready for this, okay? What do I tell her? Chandler: Just tell her the truth. Tell her you're not ready. Ross: I could do that. What if she gets upset? Chandler: Then you distract her with a Barbie doll. Joey: Or ... you could just, you know ... (Joey pushes Ross into the fridge.) Ross: What the hell are you doing? Joey: Wha- what the hell am I doing? You just broke my fridge! Ross: What? How do you know if ... how do you know it's even broken? Joey: Oh, you think I don't know what breaks my fridge?
