  • The episode in itself is not one of the best, but it has some good points and a dip further into the friendship between Phoebe and Ross.

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (13)

    • Rachel: Joey, why did you tell Chandler that Monica was getting a boob job? Joey: Because she is. Monica: Joey, Chandler knows I borrowed the money. Joey: For your boob job! Rachel, Monica, & Chandler: It's over, Joe! Joey: Okay, so I'm out four thousand dollars and nobody's boobs are getting any bigger?

    • Ross: Marriage stinks! I mean if you wanna see a man gain weight and a woman stop shaving? Get them married. Phoebe: That's not how you really feel, is it? Ross: No, I'm sorry. Look I don't think that's what you wanna hear right now but I can't help it. I love marriage. Phoebe: Seriously? You "Divorce-o?" Ross: If you have to call me name, I prefer "Ross the Divorcer." It's just cooler. Look, I know my marriage hasn't exactly worked out. But I love the idea to be committed to another person. And Carol had some good times before she became a lesbian... and once afterward.

    • Mike: Phoebe, I love you. Very much. But I never want to get married again. Phoebe: Oh. Wow. Mike: It's just my first marriage was, you know, such a disaster. I kind of lost faith in the whole idea. Phoebe: Was it really that bad? Mike: At one point near the end she deliberately defecated-- Phoebe: Okay, well, that's bad. But don't you think it might be different with someone else? Perhaps a blonde who always uses a toilet. Except for once in the ocean.

    • Monica: I need to borrow some money. Joey: I don't know Monica, ya know... lending friends money is always a mistake. Monica: But Chandler lent you money! Joey: And I think he would tell you it was a mistake.

    • Chandler: Maybe I should quit and get a job that pays. Monica: Oh, but you're finally doing something that you love! I can't ask you to give that up. Though it'd be nice if the thing that you love was ya know... finding gold.

    • Chandler: (To Monica) I'm not sure what they did, but I'm inclined to blame Enron. Enron was an energy trading company based in Houston, Texas which went bankrupt in 2001. Enron has become a symbol of institutionalized and well-planned corporate fraud.
