  • Quotes (31)

    • Ross: Look, I did a terrible, stupid, stupid thing and I'm sorry. I wish I could take it back but I can't. I just can't see us throwing away something so damn good. Rachel, I love you so much. (Ross puts his head on her shoulder and tries to kiss her) Rachel: No, Ross, don't. You can't just kiss me and think you're gonna make this all go away. It doesn't work that way. It doesn't just make it better. Ross: Okay, okay. Rachel: I think you should go. Ross: What? Rachel: I really think you need to go now.

    • Ross: You know, I'm not the one who wanted that break. You're the one who bailed on us. You're the one that-- that ran the moment things got just little rough. Rachel: That-- that's... Ross: That's what? Rachel: That's neither here nor there.

    • Ross: Look, Rachel, I'm sorry, okay? I was out of my mind. I thought I'd lost you, I didn't know what to do. C'mon, c'mon, how insane was I to do something like this, huh? I don't cheat. That's not me. I'm not Joey. Joey (listening from Monica's room): Whoa. (they all give him a look) Yeah, okay.

    • Rachel: God! And to hear about it from Gunther. Ross: C'mon, like I wanted him to tell you. I ran all over the place trying to make sure that didn't happen. Rachel (sarcastically): Oh, that is so sweet. I think I'm falling in love with you all over again.

    • Joey: You know what? I don't think we should listen to this anymore. Monica: Wait, what are you doing? You can't go out there. Joey: Why not? I'm hungry. Monica: Because then they'll know we've been listening.

    Trivia (9)

    • When Phoebe, Monica, Joey and Chandler are trapped in Monica's room during Ross and Rachel's fight Phoebe calls her massage place to ask someone to take her 9 o'clock appointment. It is strange that a massage place would be open at 9pm.

    • Trivia: When Ross says "Now were in a tough spot again" to Rachel, he is referring to the events that happened in the season 2 episode "The One with the List."

    • When Monica and Phoebe are pulling the wax strips off each others legs, you can tell that its not really waxed on since the paper is not fully stuck to their legs. The actors probably used water as it would hurt to actually have to wax the same leg every take.

    • Goof: When Rachel orders the pizza she asks for extra anchovies but when we cut to the box of the pizza, the slice that is left is obviously plain cheese. Rachel asked for some anchovies on top and some in the sauce.

    • Trivia: Monica's catchphrase "I know!" is heard for the first time in this episode.
