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.

  • Rachel: (About breaking up with Mike) I'm so sorry, Pheebs. Monica: We're all sorry. (Group hug) Chandler: Ah, look on the bright side. I mean you won't have to live with this ugly chair! That was here already, huh? (Phoebe nods) I love you. (They hug again)

  • Chandler: (While holding a very heavy couch) And... hernia.

  • Rachel: Emma started crawling and I realized that this place is very unsafe for a baby. So I went to the store and got some stuff to baby-proof the apartment. Joey: Oh, baby-proofing. Why is this such a big deal now? You know, when I was a kid it was like, "Whoops! Joey fell down the stairs!" or "Whoops! Joey electrocuted himself again!" Huh! Monica: Anyway... are you going to get a handyman to install this stuff? Rachel: No. I was just going to do this myself. Joey: You're gonna do it? Rachel: Yeah, why? You don't think a woman can do this? Joey: Oh, women can. You can't. Rachel: Monica, would you please tell Joey that he is a pig? Monica: You're a pig. (Turning to Rachel) And you can't do this. Rachel: What? Come on! I found the hardware store all by myself! Joey: The hardware store is right down the street. Rachel: There is a hardware store right down the street?
