The One Hundredth

Aired Thursday 8:00 PM Oct 08, 1998 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Trivia: During the ten seasons of Friends, Lisa Kudrow was the only female cast member to have a child, yet her character of Phoebe was the only female character to not become a mother. And Matt LeBlanc was the only male cast member to have a child, yet his character of Joey was the only male character to not become a father.

    • Factual Error: When Phoebe's doctor requests the TV be turned on, the Happy Days theme is playing, and the doctor mentions it is the episode where Fonzie plays the bongos. The episode mentioned is "Fonzie Joins the Band" from the second season. However, that Happy Days theme was not used until the series' third season. During the first two seasons of Happy Days the opening theme was "Rock Around the Clock" performed by Bill Haley & His Comets. (Although the DVD release of the second season of Happy Days replaced "Rock Around the Clock" with the Happy Days theme song, it shouldn't air that way in syndication.)

    • Trivia: The name of one of Phoebe's doctors is Dr. Oberman. In "The One with the Sonogram at the End" Carol's doctor is also named Dr. Oberman (though not the same person).

    • Continuity: Phoebe got pregnant in January. Ross's wedding was in May and the birth of the triplets is supposed to be shortly after. So Phoebe's pregnancy stretched no further than January to June, which is only six months.

    • Factual error: When Joey is in pain, he grabs his back. However, the doctor says that the kidney stones are close to the bladder. His pain would actually be in the groin area.

    • Goof: When Frank is on the phone right before Rachel talks to him, he says "And I love you!" to the person on the other side, in such a way that we assume he's talking to Alice. But then he tells Rachel that it was Alice's mother on the phone. Why would he tell Alice's mother that he loves her in such a way?

    • Goof: When one of the babies is being born and the camera is facing Phoebe, you can see the baby under the cover before it's born.

    • Goof: When Phoebe asks for a minute alone with the triplets, the camera angle shows a closeup of the babies and the two girls are right next to each other. When the shot changes, the middle baby is positioned much higher.

    • Goof: When Phoebe tells Rachel she wants to keep one of the babies, Rachel's chair is right next to Phoebe's bed. Then the camera angle changes to Phoebe, but you can see Rachel's arms, indicating that she didn't move. However, when the camera goes back to Rachel, her chair is a little far from the bed, so that she has to get up and walk to be next to Phoebe.

    • Goof: In the hospital scene after the last triplet is born, Alice arrives and starts talking with Frank. There are people sitting on the couch on the left side of the screen. Then when they start making out and go onto the couch, there are no people there anymore.

  • Quotes

    • Phoebe: (admitting herself into the hospital) Um, I'm Phoebe Buffay, and I have babies coming out of me.

    • Nurse: (to the guys with Phoebe) Now, which of you is the father?
      Phoebe: Oh, no. None of them are the father. The father is my brother.
      Nurse: (hesitantly) Okay...
      Rachel: (aside to Phoebe) I'm so gonna miss watching you freak people out like that.

    • (Monica and Chandler were making out, so arrive late to the hospital)
      : (to Monica and Chandler) Hey, what took you so long? ...your cab left when ours did...
      Monica: (flustered) Uh... We had to go back because... I forgot my jacket!
      Rachel: But, you're not wearing a jacket...
      Monica: Oh, man! ...I did it again!

    • Ross: Relax Phoebe, it's going to be okay...
      Phoebe: That's easy for you to say! ...I don't see three babies coming out of your vagina!

    • Dr. Harad: (after introducing himself to Phoebe) ...Oh, and also, I love Fonzie.
      Chandler: (after Dr. Harad leaves) Did he just say he loves Fonzie?

    • Rachel: Monica? You're gonna be very proud of me... I just got us dates with two unbelievably cute nurses.
      Joey: (grinning) Oh, my!
      Rachel: (to Joey) They are male... nurses.
      Joey: Not in my head.

    • Phoebe: (having a contraction) Ow! Ow! Ow! ...Owww!! (looks under the blanket) Ooh, I was kinda hoping that was it.

    • Frank Jr: (about Joey doubling over in pain) What's with him?
      Phoebe: Oh, sympathy pains. I thought it was really sweet at first, but now I just think he's trying to steal my thunder.

    • Frank Jr: (about Dr. Harad being an avid Fonzie fan) It's not that weird, is it?
      : It's very weird! I don't want some guy down there telling me I'm... y'know... dilated-amundo!

    • Monica: Listen, I think there's something that you should know.
      Chandler: Oh, is this about you... you dating the nurse? ...Yeah, Joey already told me--and I am so, so fine. You and I, we're just... y'know, we're nothing! We're just, uh... goofin' around!
      Monica: (taken slightly aback) Um... actually, I was about to tell you that I was going to get out of it... but, um, hey... if we're just "goofin' around", then, uh... maybe I will go out with him.
      Chandler: Fine! ...Maybe I will, too!

    • Rachel: Honey, y'know, I just gotta tell ya... I think this is such a terrific thing that you're having these babies for Frank and Alice...
      Phoebe: I know... It is... Can I tell you a little secret...?
      Rachel: Yeah...
      Phoebe: (mischievously) I want to keep one...
      Rachel: (after it sinks in) Oh... I'm gonna be on the news!

    • Rachel: Phoebe... honey... you gotta be kidding... I mean... you know you can't keep one of these babies...
      Phoebe: Why not?! ...maybe I can... you don't know!
      Rachel: Yes, yes I do! I do know! ...Frank and Alice are gonna want to keep all of their children!
      Phoebe: Maybe not! ...y'know? Seriously... three babies are a handful! ...maybe they're, y'know... looking for a chance to unload one of them... I'd hate to miss an opportunity just because I didn't ask!

    • Frank Jr: (to Phoebe) Hey, y'know... Alice is gonna be here so soon.... you couldn't, just like, do me a favor and like... hold them in...?
      Phoebe: Sorry, Frank, I'm kinda in the middle of the last favor you asked me to do.

    • Frank Jr: (screaming) Yes! Yes! We got a baby boy! Frank Jr. Jr.!
      Rachel: How does he look? How does he look?
      Frank Jr: So gross!

    • Dr. Harad: It's almost time to push again.
      Phoebe: I already had a baby, leave me alone!

    • Frank Jr: Chandler's a girl!
      Chandler: Oh, God... Kindergarten flashback!
      Frank Jr: Well, they must have read the sonogram wrong, because they thought it was a boy, but Chandler's a girl! Chandler's a girl!
      Chandler: Okay, keep saying it!

    • Chandler: So, are you really going to go out with that nurse man?
      Monica: Well, if you and I are just goofin' around, I thought, why not just goof around with him?
      Chandler: Well, I don't know if you've ever looked up the term "goofing around" in the dictionary... well, I have... and the technical definition is... two friends, who care a lot about each other and have amazing sex, and just wanna spend more time together... But if you have this new-fangled dictionary that gets you mad at me... then we have to get you my original dictionary... (reflecting on what he just said) I am so bad at this...
      Monica: (affectionately) I think you're better than you think you are...
      Chandler: Really? Okay, so, if--
      Monica: Know when to stop.
      Chandler: Y'know... I sensed that I should stop.

    • Monica: (holding one of the babies) I think you're my favorite!
      Phoebe: Which one do you have?
      Monica: I don't care!

    • Phoebe: (to the babies) I wish I could take you home and see you every day... Okay, I'll settle for being your favorite aunt... I know Alice's sister has a pool, but you lived in me.

    • Chandler: So, now that little Chandler turned out to be a girl, what are they gonna name her?
      Phoebe: They're gonna call her Chandler.
      Chandler: That's kind of a masculine name, don't you think?
      Phoebe: Works on you...
