  • Quotes

    • Ross: (To Monica and Chandler) You know, sometimes when I'm alone in my apartment, I look over here and you guys... are just having dinner or... watching TV or something, but... it makes me feel better. And now when I look over, who am I gonna see? The Gottliebs? The Yangs? They don't make me feel so good.
      Rachel: Yeah. So don't move, okay? Just stay here and... maybe close your blinds at night.

    • Monica: (About the house) We think if you saw it, you'd understand. (To Rachel and Phoebe) I mean you guys were there. It is beautiful, isn't it?
      Rachel: Yeah, it is.
      Joey: What the hell are you doin'?
      Rachel: Well, it is, all right? When we were out there today, all I kept thinking was, "I can't believe Chandler is screwing this woman, but man this would be a nice place to live!"

    • Ross: We think Chandler might be having an affair.
      Monica: What?
      Rachel: Phoebe and I saw Chandler with a blonde woman today outside on the street and then we followed them to a house in Westchester.
      Phoebe: They went in together. So sorry.
      Monica: Oh, my God! Oh, my God that's awful! What did you think of the house?
      Phoebe: What?
      Joey: Monica, you understand what we are saying, right?
      Monica: Yeah, sure... Hum, I'm devastated, obviously... (Turning to Phoebe and Rachel) Did you think the neighborhood was homey?

    • Ross: I just can't see Chandler cheating.
      Rachel: I'm telling you guys, we followed them out to a house in Westchester, they went in for like forty-five minutes and then they came out looking pretty happy.
      Joey: Chandler? Forty-five minutes? Well, something is not right.

    • Phoebe: (About telling Monica she saw Chandler with another woman) So, should we tell her?
      Ross: I don't know. Phoebe, if one of us saw Mike with another woman, would you want us to tell you?
      Phoebe: Why? Who'd you seen him with?
      Ross: No one, I'm just saying if...
      Phoebe: (Pinching his neck) Tell me what you know!
      Ross: (Yelling in pain) I know nothing! Mike's a great guy, it was hypothetical!
      Phoebe: All right. He is a good guy. You're right, he wouldn't cheat.
      Ross: Believe me, if I did see with someone, there's no way I...
      Phoebe: (Pinching him again) Who did you see him with?!

    • Phoebe: Okay. Quick. We gotta find a cab and follow them.
      Rachel: Oh, yeah, okay. Let me just grab my night vision goggles and my stun gun.
      Phoebe: (Patting her purse) I got them!

    • Phoebe: If you had to, what would you give up, food or sex?
      Monica: (Without hesitation) Sex!
      Chandler: Seriously, answer faster.
      Monica: Oh, I'm sorry honey, you know, but when she said "sex" I wasn't thinking about "sex with you!"
      Chandler: (To Phoebe) It's like a giant hug.

    • Phoebe: (To Monica and Chandler) You can't leave the city. What if you want Chinese food at five a.m.? Or a fake Rolex that breaks as soon as it rains? Or an Asian hooker sent right to your door?

    • Monica: You smell like perfume and cigarettes!
      Chandler: I was in the car with Nancy all day.
      Monica: Nancy doesn't smoke.
      Chandler: At least the perfume's not mine, be grateful for that.

    • Monica: It has a big yard that leads down to a stream, and there are these maple trees...
      Phoebe: Again with the nature! What are you, beavers?

    • Monica: And that's great for you guys, but we want a lawn and a swing-set...
      Chandler: And a street where our kids can ride their bikes and maybe an ice cream truck can go by.
      Ross: (Sarcastically) So you wanna buy a house in the 50's?

    • Rachel: What about you, Joe? What would you give up, sex or food?
      Joey: Um, oh, I don't know. It's too hard.
      Rachel: No, you gotta pick one!
      Joey: Food. No, sex. Food! Sex! Food! I don't know! Good God, I don't know! I want girls on bread!

    • Phoebe: I'm always right about these things.
      Rachel: No, you're not. Last week you thought Ross was trying to kill you.
      Phoebe: Well, I'm sorry, but it's hard to believe that someone would tell a story that dull just to tell it.

    • Monica: How bad do you wanna smoke right now?
      Chandler: I don't know what you mean, giant talking cigarette!

    • Chandler: Hi, guys.
      Joey: You son of a bitch!
      Chandler: Is it me, or have the greetings gone downhill around here?

  • Notes

    • International Episode Title:
      France: Celui qui se faisait coincer (The One Who Got Caught)

    • Courteney Cox-Arquette was pregnant during the filming of this episode. It is visible, especially in her face, that she gained weight from her real-life pregnancy. She also wears larger clothes to try to disguise this. On June 13th, 2004 Courteney and her husband David Arquette welcomed the birth of their daughter Coco Riley Arquette.

    • In the flashback where Joey gets the turkey stuck on his head, Joey complains that it smells bad and Phoebe replies "Of course, you have your head up a dead turkey's ass." But in the original episode, "The One with the Thanksgiving Flashbacks", Phoebe replied "Of course, you have your head up a dead animal's ass." Apparently they used another take when selecting the scene.

    • This episode runs 23:05 on DVD (a typical sitcom runs about 22:00).

    • This is the last episode with Chandler's name in the title of the episode.

    • Clip show #6. This is the last clip show in the series.

  • Allusions

    • Phoebe: (on the phone) Well it's a shame that you're going to miss the movie, because we were gonna see either Liar Liar, or Betrayal, or An Affair to Remember.
      Chandler: (on the phone) Those are all really old.
      Rachel: Oh, maybe it's Dude, Where's My Car?

      Liar Liar is a 1997 slapstick comedy in which a lawyer, played by Jim Carrey, is unable to tell a lie for a whole day after his son makes a birthday wish.

      Betrayal is a 1983 film adaption of a play in which an art gallery owner, played by Patricia Hodge, and a literary agent, played by Jeremy Irons, have a seven-year-long affair.

    • Ross: Oh, my God, it's like Sophie's Choice.

      Sophie's Choice is a 1982 film starring Meryl Streep, about a woman who was forced by Nazis to choose life for one child, and death for the other.

    • Rachel: (To Monica and Chandler) Why can't you raise a child in the city? I'm doing it. Ross is doing it. Sarah Jessica Parker is doing it!

      This is a reference to the actress, Sarah Jessica Parker, who is most famous for her role in Sex and the City.
