    I got a question which always bugs me, it's not about friends, so I don't know whether is appropriate to ask here. Here is the question: What kind of phonetic symbols do american people learn at school? Is it KK? Thanks.
    ^-^ If I am blew off, totally understand!

    Rachel: "...and I know I had it when I was in the kitchen with..."
    Chandler: "Dinah?"

    When Chandler says "Dinah," he is jokingly referring to a lyric in the song "I've Been Working On The Railroad":

    "...Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah,
    someone's in the kitchen I know.
    Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah
    strumming on the old banjo."

    I hope that helps!

    Thanks, bro. I already listened to the song, it's nice.

    There is a movie called "Jackass" from the early '00s, but the real meaning is a stupid person or a jerk.  As for FYU, it actually is "FYI" and it means "for your information." So when people say "FYI," they're saying something like "For your information, Ross, when a girl asks for some ill-advised sympathy sex, just do it."

    The first actress, Anita Barone, had auditioned for one of the three female leads in the show, but didn't get the part. The producers then offered her the recurring role of Carol. However, after only one episode as Carol, Barone decided that she was looking for a more full-time role and left to look for other opportunities, being replaced by Jane Sibbett beginning in "The One Where Underdog Gets Away".

    Sorry I couldn't help more....I assumed you knew the meaning of the *bad word* and the U in FYU, instead of FYI confused me.

    Does anyone have the Friends Complete Series DVD set? I was thinking about getting it, but I'm a little confused as to how it's set up. In the pictures it doesn't look like the DVD's are divided into seasons, and I could see where that could be confusing. I'm not sure If I'll like it, so anyone who owns it, I'd like to hear your opinion on the set. I already own all the seasons individually, but I'm looking to give those to my brother, and buy the new ones, If it's worth it. Thanks in advance.

    I bought all 10 seasons individually, because I didn't like the set up of the complete DVD. I like having a different box with different pics for each season. It's more time consuming, but I think that it is worth it. Also, I am not sure how many extras and gag reels are on the "Complete" DVD. I hope that helps.
