    Monica: Yeah, just something I picked up.
    Ross: Wow! Cookies and porn, you're the best mom ever!

  • Ross: So the first time you ask a guy out, he, he turns you down? Rachel: He didn't turn me down! He's at the game, isn't he? I got the date, I'm just not on it!

  • Chandler: (About Kathy) What if she didn't actually sleep with the guy? Joey: Dude, tell me she actually told you this. Chandler: She did not have to tell me, I saw the play, and there was no heat. Back me up here, Ross! Ross: That's all you're basing this on? Chandler: That's not backing me up! Look, you said with the off-stage and the heat, and the onstage and the no heat. Joey: Whoa, whoa, that, that was just a theory! There's a lot of theories that didn't pan out. The lone gunman. Communism. Geometry. Chandler: Oh, my God!

I mean, I was always the hostess, I mean even when I was little, I mean the girls brought their dollies to my tea party, I, I served the best air.

  • Joey: The rule is when two actors are actually doing it off-stage all the sexual tension between them is gone. Okay? So as long as it's hot onstage you got nothing to worry about. It's when the heat goes away, that's when you're in trouble. Chandler: Really? Joey: Look, you guys have been to every play I've ever been in, have I ever had chemistry on stage? Ross: No. Joey: No!

  • Joey: (About asking someone out) What I do is, I look a woman up and down, and I say "Hey. How you doin'?"
