    Joey finds out the hard way that it's not wise to boast false things: His soap opera character gets dropped down an elevator shaft. Phoebe helps Chandler bond with his new roommate...much to Chandler's horror. And sexual history dominates the discussion between two couples--Monica and Richard, and Ross and Rachel. not a very memorable episode of the show to be honest but it had its moments, Eddie was funny again and the story about Chandler and Joey was a decentlittle story arc. The couples where funny and Ross growling was funny too. I will give this a 9 out of 10.moreless

    Eddie is a psycho. He is pretty intense. I am so glad this guy is going to get written out soon. He is so annoying! Anyways I love this episode because Rachel & Monica find themselves in a very compromising situation. They both want to have sex. One condom. All the transitions were amazing. Rachel wins the condom. I like how Richard & Ross have to have awkward. situations. Joey's plot was also amazing. His character gets killed off! And now he is royally screwed. He made a huge mistake by telling Soap Opera Digest that he made up his own lines. An amazing episode.moreless
  • And a crusty old man said, "I'll do what I can," and the rest of the rats played moroccas

    This episdoe is sad. Chandler realizes that he misses Joey and his new room mate is scary. When he asks phoebe to play fooball with him she says: "No. This game is grotesque. Twenty armless guys joined at the waist by a steel bar, forced to play soccer forever. Ahh, hello, human-rights violation." Plus Joey's Character is killed off Days of Our Lives. A conversation at Central Perk about how many guys Monica has slept with continues at the apartment ending with Richard telling Monica that he loves her. But lack of condoms keeps them from "enjoying their night"moreless

    Joey finds out the hard way that it's not wise to boast false things and learns this when he tells an interviewer that he writes alot of his own lines on days of our lives and therefore his soap opera character gets dropped down an elevator shaft. Phoebe helps Chandler bond with his new roommate...much to Chandler's horror but luckily it works. And sexual history dominates the discussion between two couples--Monica and Richard, and Ross and Rachel.moreless

    • Ross: (Knocking on Joey's door) Come on.
      Rachel: Joey.
      Ross: Open up. We want to talk to you.
      Joey: I don't feel like talking.
      Rachel: Oh come on Joey, we care about you.
      Chandler: We're worried about you.
      Monica: And some of us really have to pee.

    • Monica: It's not going happen. They're doing it tonight, we can do it tomorrow.
      Richard: Uh, in the future, if I could see the schedule beforehand...

    • Rachel: Ross, Ross, please listen to me. Ross, you are so much better for me than Paolo ever was. I mean you care about me, you're loving, you make me laugh.
      Ross: Oh, hey, if I make you laugh, here's an idea: why don't you invite Paolo over and have a little romp in the sack and I'll just stand in the corner and tell knock-knock jokes.

    • Rachel: Oh please. That Paolo thing was barely a relationship. All it really was was just, ya know, meaningless animal sex. Okay, you know, that sounded so much better in my head.

    • Ross: (About the number of guys Rachel has slept with) Tell me about it. So what, what's your magic number?
      Rachel: Uh, no.
      Ross: Come on, you know everyone I've been with. All, both of them.
      Rachel: Well, there's you.
      Ross: Better not be doing these in order.

    • Monica: (About the number of guys Monica has slept with) Well it wasn't that many guys. I mean, if you consider how many guys there actually are, it's a very small percentage.

    • Phoebe: All right I have to make a speech. I just want to say that of all the guys that Monica has been with, and that is a lot, I like you the best.
      Richard: Oh, thank you Pheebs. That's very sweet.
      Phoebe: Okay.
      Richard: Hear that? She likes me best, and apparently there have been a lot.
      Monica: Not a lot, Phoebe's kidding, Phoebe's crazy.
      Rachel: Phoebe's dead.

    • Monica: You know, I was thinking. You know how we always stay at your apartment? Well, I thought maybe tonight we'd stay at my place.
      Richard: I don't know, I don't have my jammies.
      Monica: Well, maybe you don't need them.
      Ross: My baby sister, ladies and gentlemen.

    • Rachel: (About Joey's Days of Our Lives character) Well, maybe they can find a way to bring you back.
      Joey: Nah, they said that when they found my body, my brain was so smashed in that the only doctor that could have saved me was me. Supposed to be some kind of irony or something.

    • Chandler: Eddie, I didn't sleep with your ex-girlfriend.
      Eddie: That's very interesting, ya know, 'cause that's exactly what someone who slept with her would say.

    • Chandler: So, you uh, you think that Speed Racer guy gets a lot of tickets?

    • Phoebe: Hi, um, I just thought that it would be fun if the three of us had some beers and got to know each other.
      Eddie: Yeah alright. That sounds alright.
      Phoebe: Oh good, okay. Oh no, I have to go because I'm late for my, um, Green Eggs and Ham discussion group. Um, tonight it's why he would not eat them on a train. Have fun bye.

    • Chandler: (About foosball) Pheebs, play with me
      Phoebe: No. This game is grotesque. Twenty armless guys joined at the waist by a steel bar, forced to play soccer forever. Ah, hello, human-rights violation.

    • Rachel: So what happens next?
      Joey: Well, I get the medical award for separating the Siamese twins, then Amber and I go to Venezuela to meet our other half brother "Ramon" and that's where I find the world's biggest emerald. It's really big, but it's cursed.
      Chandler: God, that is good TV!

    • Rachel: (Watching Days of Our Lives) She just found out that she was cut out of the will.
      Phoebe: Doesn't she know you can't define yourself in terms of money? That it's about values and morals and your ability to give and receive love.
      Rachel: No.

    • Tilly: I'm Tilly.
      Chandler: Oh.
      Tilly: I gather by that oh that he told you about me.
      Chandler: Oh yeah, your uh, name came up in a uh, conversation that terrified me to my very soul.

    • Chandler: (About Eddie) So, when I woke up this morning, he'd stolen all the insoles out of my shoes.
      Monica: Why?
      Chandler: Because he thinks I slept with his ex-girlfriend, and killed his fish.
      Phoebe: Why would you kill his fish?
      Chandler: Because sometimes, Phoebe, after you sleep with someone... you have to kill a fish.
