    • Becky: So what are you guys out doing today? Joey: Oh we're not out. No, no. We're just uh, two heterosexual guys, hanging with the son of our other heterosexual friend, doing the usual straight guy stuff. Chandler: You done? Joey: Yeah. Robin: Oh, there's our stop. Joey: Get outta here. This is our stop too. Becky: You guys live around here too? Joey: Oh, yeah, yeah, sure. We live in the building by the... uh... sidewalk. Chandler: You know it?

    • Ross: I hope Ben has a little sister. Monica: Yeah. I hope she can kick his ass.

    • Ross: Oh, man. Oh, remember when I stuck that broom in your bike spokes, and you flipped over and hit your head on the curb? Monica: No. But I remember people telling me about it.

    • Rachel: Well, people missed you in there. And in fact, there was actually a request for "Smelly Cat." Phoebe: Really? From who? Rachel: Well, from me. And I know it's not your big money song, but it's my favorite.

    • Joey: Oh, oh wait. That one's definitely Ben. Remember, he had that cute little mole by his mouth. Chandler: Yeah? Joey: Yeah. Chandler: Hey, Ben, remember us? Okay, the mole came off. Joey: Ah!

    Trivia (10)

    • The guy who takes the condom back from Phoebe is later revealed to be her half-brother Frank.

    • Continuity: In "The One With Frank Jr." Rachel tells Phoebe that she's not supposed to bring cups out of Central Perk. However, in this episode, not only does Phoebe drink from a cup outside of Central Perk, but Rachel brings it out for her. Also, in "The One With A Chick And A Duck" Gunther (who was actually the person to tell Rachel that the cups weren't supposed to be brought out of the coffee place) brings out a cup of cocoa for Rachel (possibly because of his feelings for her).

    • Goof: In the scene where Chandler is telling Monica that it will be a long time before she has to deal with her own baby, Monica folds her arms. When the camera angle changes, her arms are down by her sides. When the angle pans back to Chandler, her arms are folded again.

    • Phoebe's Songs: "Shower Song" I'm in the shower and I'm writing a song Stop me if you've heard it. My skin is soapy, and my hair is wet, and Tegrin spelled backward is Nirget. Lather, rinse, repeat and lather, rinse, repeat and lather, rinse, repeat as needed. "I Play For Me" When I play, I play for me I don't need your charity La lalala lalalalalalala lalala lalala lalalalalalala.... "Double-Jointed Boy" ...was the double, double, double-jointed boy. "Stephanie" Stephanie knows all the chords. "Terry" Terry's a jerk! And he won't let me work! And I hate Central Perk! You're all invited to bite me! "Smelly Cat" Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, What are they feeding you? Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat, It's not your fault.
