    • Chandler: You know what I just realized? You just freaked out about our relationship. Monica: I did not. Chandler: Yes, you did. Admit it. You freaked out. Monica: Okay, I freaked out a little. Chandler: A little? You freaked out big time, okay. And I fixed it. We have switched places. I am the relationship king and you are the crazy irrational screw up. (dances, Monica glares at him) And now we're back.

    • Monica: Come on, we can't let them win. Chandler: We have already proved that we are hot, okay? So why are you getting so obsessed with this thing? Monica: Because Phoebe and Gary are in that 'can't keep your hands off each other, doing it in the park phase.' Chandler (gasps): So? Monica: So, it's really sad that we're not really there anymore. Chandler: Oh, wow, is that what this all has been about? Monica: Wasn't it a lot more exciting when we were you know, all over each other all the time? Chandler: Yeah, that was great. That was really great. But to tell you the truth, I'm more excited about where we are now. Monica: Really? Chandler: Yeah. I've never been in a relationship that's lasted this long before. To get past the beginning and still want to be around all the time. I think that's pretty incredible and the fact that this is happening with you, yeah I think that's pretty exciting. Monica: That's so sweet. I know that I was acting a little crazy but I feel the same way.

    • Monica: Phoebe, you have a twig in your hair. Phoebe: Oh. (laughs) We kinda took a little detour on our way over here. Gary: Yeah, we took a stroll through the park and no one was around so. Monica: You didn't. Phoebe: We did. We violated section 12 paragraph 7 of the criminal code.

    • Chandler: That was amazing. Monica: Phoebe and Gary are so gonna hear about this at dinner. Chandler: That was amazing. Monica: We are the hottest. No one is hotter than we are. We're the best. Chandler: No, you're the best. Monica: No, you're the best. Chandler: No, you're the best. Monica: I am the best.

    • Monica: We have got to beat them. Chandler: Why? Monica: Because Gary and Phoebe think we're a hotter couple than we are. Chandler: Oh. So? Monica: So?! So, we have got to go upstairs and have a lot of sex and prove them wrong. Chandler: Mon, you have got to stop this competitive thing, it's crazy. Just to impress Gary and Phoebe, I have to go upstairs and have sex with you over, and over, and over... and I'm saying no to this, why? Get your coat!
