    • Dr. Green: So when is the wedding? Rachel: Who? Dr. Green: The wedding! There's going to be a wedding. Young lady, don't you sit there and tell me my first grandchild is going to be a bastard! Rachel Karen Green, tell me there is gonna be a wedding! Rachel: February 2nd.

    • Rachel: (About telling her father that she's pregnant) I can't tell him, Phoebe. I can't, I can't, I can't, I can't. Phoebe: Rachel! Rachel: No it's okay, this is what's gonna happen.

    Trivia (8)

    • Continuity: In this episode Monica says that the stripper could be a two-month anniversary present. In "The One with the Cheap Wedding Dress" Monica tells Megan that she and Chandler are getting married on May 15th. This episode occurs after the Halloween episode, making it closer to six months rather than two. However, their being married for two months would put their wedding in mid-September and would fit in line with Rachel giving birth in mid-May.

    • Goof: In this episode, Monica rushes home to warn Chandler that the woman she hired as a stripper is actually a hooker. Wouldn't it have been faster if she had simply called him from the restaurant?

    • Goof: In the tag scene when Joey picks up the phone, you can hear Dr. Green say "consequences of your decisions." After that Joey picks up the phone. About five seconds later he yells, "I do too think about the consequences of my decisions."

    • Goof: At the end when Monica strips for Chandler, you can see by the colored dots on his crown that it rotates on his head between every shot.

    • Goof: When Ross and Mona have their makeup kiss, Mona puts her arm around Ross. When the camera angle changes, she puts her arm around him again.
