  • Quotes

    • Chandler: (While Erica is in labor) So, uh... any plans for the summer?
      Erica: I don't know. Maybe church camp.
      Chandler: Ah. You may not want to mention this...

    • Rachel: We should go get some coffee.

      Chandler: Where?

    • Chandler: (About Erica) You can't leave me alone with her.
      Monica: What?
      Chandler: This is exactly the kind of social situation that I am not comfortable with!
      Monica: What kind of social situation are you comfortable with?
      Chandler: It's just that we've never spent any time, you know, alone together.
      Monica: You'll be fine. Nah, you won't, but I'll be back in two minutes.

    • Ross: And then she said it was the perfect way to say goodbye.
      Joey: Oh, my God! What did you say?
      Ross: Nothing! What do you say to that?
      Phoebe: Ross, you've got to tell her how you feel!
      Ross: No way!
      Joey: You can't just give up! Is that what a dinosaur would do?
      Ross: What?
      Joey: Dude, I'm just trying to speak your language.

    • Phoebe: So, did you talk to Rachel?
      Ross: No, and I'm not going to.
      Phoebe: What?
      Joey: Why not?
      Ross: Because she's just going to shoot me down. You guys saw what happened with Gunther. That did not look like fun.
      Phoebe: How can you compare yourself to Gunther? I mean, sure, he's sexy in a more obvious way. You have a relationship with her, you slept together last night.
      Ross: Yeah, and she still wants to go! It's pretty clear where she is.

    • Rachel: I just want you to know... Last night... I'll never forget it.
      Ross: Neither will I. (They hug)
      Rachel: (To the five friends) All right, now I really have to go. Okay. (With a terrible accent) Au revoir! Oh, they're gonna really hate me over there.

    • Chandler: So, you ever wonder which is worse, you know, going through labour or getting kicked in the nuts?
      Erica: What?
      Chandler: Well, it's just interesting. You know, because no one will ever know, because no one can experience both.

    • Phoebe: So, you just let her go?
      Ross: (Crushed) Yeah.
      Joey: Hey, maybe that's for the best.
      Ross: Yeah?
      Joey: Yeah. Look, you gotta think about last night the way she does, okay? You know, maybe, maybe sleeping together was the perfect way to say goodbye.
      Phoebe: But now she'll never know how he feels.
      Joey: But maybe that's okay, you know? Maybe it is better this way. I mean, now, now you can move on. I mean, you've been trying to for so long, maybe now that you're on different continents... (Asking Phoebe) right? Maybe now you can actually do it. You know, you can finally get over her.
      Ross: Yeah, that's true. Except, I don't wanna get over her.
      Joey: What?
      Ross: I don't. I wanna be with her!
      Joey: (Smiling happily) Really?
      Ross: Yeah. I'm gonna go after her.

    • Monica: We've decided to name the girl baby Erica.
      Erica: Oh my God, that's just like my name!
      Monica: Son of a gun, it is.

    • Ross: This was amazing.
      Rachel: It really was. You've learned some new moves!
      Ross: Yeah, well, this guy at work gave me Sex for Dummies as a joke.
      Rachel: Ah.
      Ross: Who's laughing now?
      Rachel: I am!

    • Ross: So, (Kisses Rachel) morning.
      Rachel: You too. Last night was just wonderful.
      Ross: It really was.
      Rachel: I woke up today with the biggest smile on my face.
      Ross: I know, me, too. It was, you know, it was like one of those things you think is never gonna happen and then it does, and it's everything you wanted it to be.
      Rachel: I know. It was just... it was just the perfect way to say goodbye.
      (Rachel hugs him and Ross looks crushed)

    • Chandler: (About Erica's labor) Next time can I say "breathe"?
      Monica: No! Last time you said it like Dracula and it scared her!

    • Chandler: Twins! Twins!
      Monica: Chandler, you're panicking!
      Chandler: Uh huh! Join me, won't you?!

    • Ross: (To Rachel) Hi. How'd you sleep?
      Rachel: Good. You?
      Ross: Great.
      Joey: I'll bet you did.

    • Ross: Hey, I'm not one to kiss and tell... but I'm also not one to have sex and shut up. We totally did it!
      Joey: Oh, my God! You and Rachel?
      Ross: I know, it's pretty great.
      Joey: So, what does this mean? Are you guys getting back together?
      Ross: Oh, I, I don't know. I mean, we didn't really get to talk.
      Phoebe: But do you wanna get back together?
      Ross: I don't know, I, it was incredible, I mean, it just felt so right. And when I was holding her I never wanted to let her go. You know what? Yeah, I do. I wanna be together.
      Phoebe: Oh, this is like the best day ever!

    • Phoebe: I have a definite feeling that it's going to be a girl.
      Ross: Phoebe, you were sure Ben was going to be a girl.
      Phoebe: Have you seen him throw a ball?

    • Doctor: Well, you don't have that much time to relax. The other one will be along in a minute.
      Monica: I... I'm sorry, who should be along in a what now?
      Doctor: The next baby should be along in a minute.
      Monica: We only ordered one!
      Doctor: You know it's twins, right?
      Chandler: Oh, yeah! These are the faces of two people in the know!

    • Monica: We can't split them up!
      Chandler: Why not? We could give each of them half a medallion, and then years later, they'll find each other, and be reunited! I mean, that's a great day for everyone.
      Monica: But what if the person who adopts the other one is horrible?
      Chandler: Well, what if they're not? What if it's adopted by a king?
      Monica: Yeah, because I hear that the king is looking to adopt!

    • Chandler: It's a baby! A beautiful baby! And some other stuff I'm going to pretend I don't see.

    • Phoebe: You can't just wait and tell her! She's going to Paris! She is going to meet somebody! Do you know how many hot guys there are in Paris? It's a city of Gunthers!

    • Phoebe: Wow, this is like the best day ever! You and Rachel are getting back together, Monica and Chandler are getting their baby, there are chicks and ducks in the world again! I feel like I'm in a musical!

    • Ross: I'm going after her.
      Phoebe: Get your coat. Get your coat!
      Joey: Ross. Ross! How is she going to react?
      Ross: I don't know, but at least I won't spend the rest of my life wondering. Where's my coat?!
      Phoebe: You didn't bring one!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Chandler: (About the twins) Okay, what do you say we keep one and just, like, have an option on the other one?
      Monica: We can't split them up.
      Chandler: Why not? We could give each of them half a medallion, and then years later, they'll find each other and be reunited. I mean, that's a great day for everybody.

      Chandler was referring to the movie The Parent Trap in which identical twins, both played by Hayley Mills, are separated at birth and reunited at summer camp. They discover the truth through a locket that was split in half and given to both girls.

    • Chandler: Monica, we are not ready to have two babies.
      Monica: That doesn't matter! We have waited so long for this. I don't care if it's two babies. I don't care if it's three babies! I don't care if the entire cast of Eight is Enough comes out of there! We are taking them home, because they are our children!

      Eight is Enough was an American television show about a Californian family raising eight children.
