  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Ross: I hate America! When I finish this game, I swear I am moving.

    • Monica: Did you guys know your oven doesn't work?
      Joey: But the drawer full of take-out menus is okay, right?

    • Ross: Tag, you're going? We didn't even get a chance to talk. So where did you say you're from again?
      Tag: Colorado.
      Ross: Eh, what good are you?

    • Joey: Say hello to the new champ of Chandler's dumb states game.
      Ross: Wow, how many you got?
      Joey: Fifty-six.

    • Chandler: (About the dog) What if it attacks me?
      Joey: Chandler, It's like a big gerbil.
      Chandler: And that doesn't scare you?

    • Phoebe: (About her bag) It's just my knitting. That's all. (The dog sticks its head out of the bag) Yes, I knit this. I'm very good.

    • Ross: How can I not get this? I'm a college professor. I got 1450 on my SATs.
      Monica: 1250!
      Ross: Damn, I forgot you were here.

    • Ross: Done! With time to spare.
      Chandler: This might be a new world record.
      Ross: You know I hate to lecture you guys but it's kind of disgraceful that a group of well-educated adults and Joey can't name all the states. Have you ever seen a map or one of those round colorful things called a globe?
      Chandler: Uh Magellan, you have 46 states.
      Ross: What?! That's impossible.
      Joey: 46. Well who's educated now, Mr. I-forgot-ten-states?

    • Joey: If he doesn't like you, then this is all just a moo point.
      Rachel: Huh. A moo point?
      Joey: Yeah, it's like a cow's opinion, you know, it just doesn't matter. It's "moo."
      Rachel: Have I been living with him for too long, or did that all just make sense?

    • Chandler: ...And Joey, do not let Ross look at any of the maps or the globe in your apartment.
      Joey: Don't worry, Chandler, it's not a globe of the United States.

    • Joey: Look, Chandler, I told you, never tell anyone about this dog thing. It's like Ross not liking ice cream.
      Phoebe: You don't like ice cream?
      Ross: It's too cold. It hurts my teeth.
