Meanwhile, while babysitting Emma, an ovulating Monica wants to become romantically intimate with Chandler but their privacy is compromised because they can't leave the infant alone or she'll scream bloody murder.

    • Phoebe: (Watching Ross and Rachel through the window) Look, they're bonding! Oh, they're falling in love all over again! Oh, they see us. Oh, they look mad. Oh, they figured it out. Run! Joey: Where? Phoebe: Mexico!

    • Monica: Yeah, I guess having sex in front of a baby is kind of... Chandler: Gross? Scarring? The kind of thing you go to jail for? Monica: Yeah, I guess you're right. Chandler: You guess I'm right? You didn't want to do it with me in a lodge because you thought a deer was watching! Monica: Well, what kind of sick bastard does it in front of a deer?

    • Ross: Monica told me you had a blind date. Rachel: Yeah. Ross: I did, too. Rachel: Oh. Ross: But is it technically a date if the other person doesn't show up? Rachel: Oh, oh no. Do you think she walked in, saw you, and left? Ross: Why does everyone keep saying that?!

    • Rachel: Now, come on, come on, Steve. There must be something that you like about yourself. Steve: I do like my hair. Rachel: Really?

    • Chandler: Well, I think it's great that you're going on a date, you know? I mean, it sounds healthy. I mean, you have needs. Embrace your womanhood! Monica: You want a job? Turn off Oprah, and send out a resume!

    • Phoebe: Then we'll head off to sunny Mexico. Oh wait, that was the end of another plan. Probably referring to the movie Bandits where their plan was to rob banks until they had enough money to disappear in Mexico and open a nightclub.
