    • Chandler: Here's what we'll do. I'll climb down the fire escape and come up the stairs and find Joey, and then we'll both come in here and see there's no man.
      Monica: Don't you think Joey will figure all this out? (Chandler stares at her) I heard it!

    • Monica: Chandler, you have to tell Joey you're not in Tulsa.
      Chandler: Don't you think it's better for him to think that you're cheating on me than for him to think that I'm cheating on him? (Monica stares at him) I heard it!

    • Joey: (To Chandler) I don't know how to tell you this, but I think Monica's cheatin' on you. I told you shouldn't have married someone so much hotter than you.

    • Rachel: Oh that's so cute. Ross and Mike's first date. Is that going to be awkward? I mean, what are you guys going to talk about? Ross: I don't know. But, you know, we, we have a lot in common, you know. He plays piano; I played keyboards in college. He's been divorced; I have some experience in that area.

    • Ross: (Looking at Rachel) Wow, you look. Uh... It's just... that dress... Rachel: Well, I hope the ends of these sentences are good. Ross: Well, well, they're good. It's been a while since I've seen you like this. You, you've cleaned up good. Rachel: Oh well, well thank you. (He keeps staring at her) Okay, stop. Stop looking at me like that. The last time that happened, (She points to Ross) that happened. (She points to Emma)

    Notes (2)

    • International Episode Title: France: Celui qui n'osait pas dire la vérité (The One Who Couldn't Tell The Truth)

    • This episode runs 26:04 on DVD (a typical sitcom runs about 22:00).

    Trivia (3)

    • Surely Ross and Mike could've turned on the TV once they realized they had nothing at all to talk about.

    • Trivia: In the previous episode, the black and white vase under the mirror in Ross's apartment was on the table behind the lounge.

    • Goof: A major part of this episode centers around Rachel giving her phone number to a man named Bill who she meets at a bar, and then worrying about how Ross will react when Bill calls their apartment. However, when Bill asked Rachel for her phone number, he made it clear he would be calling her a little later that night if he and his friend found any good parties. We know from "The One with Joey's New Brain" that Rachel definitely has a cell phone she carries with her. Why then would Rachel give Bill her home number rather than her cell phone number (even if the Ross situation was not a factor)?
