I haven't told him yet, and I don't think I can tell him at all now. Phoebe: Why not? Rachel: I don't know, let me think.

    • Chandler: Where are the disposable cameras? Ross: What disposable cameras? Chandler: The cameras. Remember? Last night I told you to take them. Ross: No, you didn't. Chandler: Yes! Remember? Right before we cut the cake, I went up to you and I said-- Ross: Oh, oh yeah, you, you came up to me and asked if I could do you a favor, and my Uncle Murray came up to you and handed you a check. And then you said, "Why do they call it a check? Why not a Yugoslavian?" (Chandler laughs) Yeah, then you did that.
