  • QUOTES (11)

    • Chandler: (coming into Monica's apartment) Hi! ...Anybody got a length of rope, about six feet long... with a noose at the end?

    • Joey: Man, I remember the first time I saw that girl Katherine... after we broke up? She was just walkin' with her friend Donna, just... laughin' and talkin'. God! It killed me!
      Chandler: Yes, but you ended up having sex with both of them that afternoon.

    • Rachel: (to Mark) Well, then. So I'm, uh... just gonna go back to talking to my friend here... you can go back to enjoying your little hamburger.
      Monica: Actually, that's a Barbra Streisand-wich. (Rachel looks at her) What? I named that one... 
      Mark: Uh, just one other thing...
      Rachel: Yes?
      Mark: I, uh... I work at Bloomingdale's and I might know of a job possibility if you're... you're interested.
      Rachel: Do you want my pickle?

    • Monica: (to Chandler who's been drinking lime Jell-O shots) Stick out your tongue!
      Chandler: (drunk) Take off your shirt!

    • Joey: (about the Jell-O shots) Oh, My God! How many of these have you had?! These are pure vodka!
      Chandler: Yup, Jell-O just like mom used to make.

    • Ross: (about Mark offering Rachel a job) Well, I'm just saying, I mean, why else would he just, y'know... swoop in out of nowhere for no reason.
      Rachel: To be nice...?
      Ross: Hey, Joey. Are men ever nice to strange women for no reason?
      Joey: No. Only for sex.

    • Cookie: Hey! What are we drinkin' over here?
      Phoebe: Oh! Well, I have, uh, um... vodka and cranberry juice.
      Cookie: No kiddin'? That's the exact same drink I made myself right after I shot my husband.
      Phoebe: Wow! ...Yeah, I don't know how to talk to you.

    • Chandler: Well, my apartment isn't there anymore because I drank it!

    • Chandler: (about Joey's sister) ...I definitely stuck my tongue down her throat!
      Monica: That was me.
      Chandler: (embarrassed) Oh... Look, when I've been drinking sometimes I tend to get a little overly-friendly... I'm sorry. 
      Monica: That's okay...
      Rachel: That's alright...
      Ross(almost inaudible) That's okay...

    • Ross: (to Chandler) What the hell's the matter with you?! How d'you think Joey's gonna react when he finds out you blew off his sister with a letter?!
      Chandler: Well, that's the part where you tell him I moved to France (Ross looks at him) ...when actually I'll be in Cuba.
      Ross: Look, look... You've got to do this yourself, okay? In person. At least you know her name. You just go to the house and you ask for Mary-Angela, okay? When whichever one she is comes to the door, you take her for a walk, you let her down easy.
      Chandler: Okay... (thinking) What if Mary-Angela comes to the door and I ask for Mary-Angela?
      Ross: Where in Cuba?

    • Ross: Am I? Am I? Am I out of my mind?! Am I losing my senses?!
