    • Ross: (About Chandler's third nipple) So what's it shaped like? Phoebe: Yeah, is there a hair on it? Joey: What happens if you flick it?

    • Rachel: Let me tell you something. As a woman there is nothing sexier than a man who does not want to have sex. Ross: No kidding? Rachel: Oh yeah. In fact you know what I'd do? Ross: What? Rachel: I'd wait. Ross: You'd wait? Rachel: Yes, absolutely. I would wait and wait... then I'd wait some more. Ross: Really? Rachel: Oh yeah, I don't care how much she tells you she wants it, I don't care if she begs, she pleads, she tells you she's gonna have sex with another man. That just means it's working. Ross: Women really want this? Rachel: More than jewelry.

    • Rachel: (Sarcastically) Oh, Julie's so smart, Julie's so special. Monica: Look honey, I wanted you to hook up with Ross as much as you did. But he's with her now and you're just gonna have to get over it. Rachel: Oh, I'm gonna have to get over it. God, see I didn't know that's I had to do, I just have to get over it.

    • Duncan: Hi. Rachel: Hi, can I help you? Duncan: Yeah, I'm looking for Phoebe. Does she still live here? Rachel: Uh, no she doesn't but I can get a message to her. Duncan: Great. Uh, just tell her her husband stopped by. Rachel: What?! (Due to her surprise, she accidentally releases the captured pigeon from the pot.) Duncan: Hey, how, how did you do that?

    • Rachel: (On the phone) Mom, would you relax? That was ten blocks from here and the woman was walking alone at night. I would never do that. Mom, come on, stop worrying. This is a safe street, this is a safe building, there's nothing-- (A pigeon flies in through the window) Oh, my God, I gotta go. (Hangs up the phone) Okay, that's fine, you just read the paper. I'm gonna get a pot, it's not for you. Okay, that's fine, read the Family Circus, enjoy the gentle comedy. (Traps the pigeon in a pot) Ah, oh my God, oh my God, oh my God, oh my God, oh my God, oh my God, oh my God, oh my God, ah.

    Allusions (4)

    • Phoebe: So, wow, this is pretty wonderful, huh. Mr. major capades guy. I, I remember when you were just, like, King Friday in Mister Rogers' Ice is Nice. Mr. Rogers was a beloved children icon who had a long running show on PBS, Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. King Friday was one of the puppets, the ruler of the fantasy kingdom full of puppets; all of whom Mr. Rogers performed.

    • Chandler: The turns aren't as fast, but when Snoopy falls, funny. Snoopy is a character in the long-running comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. He is Charlie Brown's pet beagle.

    • Phoebe: Um, I'm gonna go meet Duncan, he's skating tonight at the Garden, he's in the Capades. The "Garden" is the nickname for New York City's famous Madison Square Garden, home of the Knicks and Rangers. The Ice Capades, or "Capades" as they are commonly known are a figure skating entertainment group that incorporate vaudeville elements with scantily clad outfits.

    • Ross: So, does it do something special? Chandler: Yes, Ross. Pressing on my third nipple opens the delivery entrance to the magical land of Narnia. This is a reference to the world inside a wardrobe in the Chronicles Of Narnia book series written by C.S. Lewis.
