    • Monica: You have to do this! We're in this together!
      Chandler: I'm afraid a jury will see it the same way!

    • Monica: I think Brenda needs a raise. Chandler: How come? Monica: Because I put my head between her legs. Chandler: To see her pants? Monica: They're my pants! Chandler: Are you sure? Did you see the stain? Monica: No! I was just getting into position and then everything went dark.

    • Brenda: Mrs. Bing, this tile cleaner is incredible! Where'd you get it? Monica: Oh well, I make it myself! It's two parts ammonia and one part lemon juice. And now the secret ingredient is... ya know what? We just met.

    • Ross: I just heard in the elevator this morning that a woman in my building died. Rachel: Oh my God! Was she old? Does she have a view? Ross: Well I don't know, but how great would that be huh? You living in my building. I could help take care of the baby. I could come over whenever I want. (Rachel looks at him) With your permission. Rachel: Yeah, that would be really great. Ross: Yeah. Rachel: Well, can we see it? Or maybe we shouldn't. I mean, if she just died this morning. Out of respect. Ross: Yeah. No. No, you're right. (They pause as they both take another sip of coffee) Rachel: Shall we? Ross: Yeah.

    • Chandler: So she stole your pants and then she came back and wore them in front of you? Monica: Don't you see? It's the perfect crime! Chandler: She must've been planning this for years!

    Trivia (7)

    • Goof: Eric, Phoebe's date says he'll take out his lenses. He starts to, but then only takes out the right lens.

    • Continuity: After Eric asks Phoebe out, she tells Ross that she can't hang out with him. However, in "The One with All the Cheesecakes," she said that friends shouldn't dump friends just because something better comes along.

    • Magna Doodle: A drawing of Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots

    • Trivia: This is the second time in the series that one of the Friends is mistakenly assumed to speak Dutch. The first time was in "The One with the Fake Monica".

    • Continuity: The apartments in Ross's building have regular numbers, such as 20 and 21. When Ross had an apartment number it was 3B and his neighbor across the hall was 3R. Not only that, but Ross doesn't have a number on his door anymore so why would other apartments have numbers?
