    • Monica: (to Chandler who's just getting up) Good morning, Tiger! I'm making you a nice big breakfast so you can keep up your strength for tonight. You're gonna get me... good and pregnant!
      Chandler: I've got nowhere to go this morning. I'm unemployed! I don't know what I'm gonna do with my life.
      Monica: Well, I just lost my erection.

    • Monica: Hey, wait a second. I can help you with this... You just need to be organized! (getting excited) We can make a list of your qualifications... and categorize jobs by industry... There could be folders... and files...
      Chandler: Hey! This is where your hyper-organized-pain-in-the-ass stuff... pays off!
      Monica: I know!! ...My erection is back!

    • Phoebe: Joey, can I have a sip of your coffee and a bite of your muffin?
      Joey: Okay.
      Phoebe: Thank-you. (pours his coffee into a thermos and puts his muffin in her purse) Thank-you!
      Joey: Pheebs, have you ever been bitten by a hungry Italian?

    • Joey: If you want, I could loan you some money...
      Phoebe: Oh, no, no, no. I learned never to borrow money from friends... No, that's why Richard Dreyfuss and I don't speak anymore.

    • Joey: (about Emma) Why does she have a pink bow taped to her head?
      Rachel: Well, because if one more person says, "What a cute little boy", I'm gonna whip 'em with a car antenna.

    • Monica: Okay, I have looked through a bunch of career guides, photocopied and highlighted key passages, and put them into alphabetical folders so you can make an informed decision.
      Chandler: (having just come from the bathroom) How long was I in there?

    • (Chandler chooses "Advertising" as his ideal career from the very first folder)
      : I'm sorry you had to waste all this time.
      Monica: You call eight hours alone with my label-maker wasted time? Ooh! Now I get to use my shredder!

    • Chandler: I can write slogans... I mean, how hard can it be, right? "Cheese... it's milk that you chew." "Crackers... because your cheese needs a buddy." "A grape... because who can get a watermelon in your mouth?"

    • Monica: I actually know someone in advertising... I grew up with this guy who is a vice-president at a big agency. Maybe I can get him to meet you... Give me the phone.
      Chandler: (demonstrating his slogan-writing skills) "The phone... bringing you closer to people... who have phones."
      Monica: (following suit) "Marriage... It's not for everybody."

    • Rachel: (about introducing Emma to her coworkers) That went well. Almost everybody knew that she was a girl.
      Ross: Yeah... After you punched that one guy who got it wrong, word spread.

    • Rachel: (discovering Gavin sitting at her desk) Who the hell are you?
      Gavin: Who the hell are you?
      Rachel: I'm the-hell person whose office this is!
      Ross: Good one, Rach'.

    • Phoebe: (working as an extra on Joey's show) Joey, look at me! I'm a nurse!
      Joey: Yes, you are... (warming to the situation) I think it may be time for my sponge bath... (checking himself) Sorry, I'm just so used to hitting on the extras.

    • Joey: (about acting) Hey, y'know what? Don't worry, Pheebs... It usually takes me three takes, too. (seeing the director give him a look) Alright, eight!

    • Interviewer: So, do you have any other questions about advertising?
      Chandler: No, no... but let me show you what I can do. (picking up a bagel and a donut) "Bagels and donuts. Round food for every mood."
      Interviewer: Monica warned me you might do that.

    • Ross: (about Emma) Rach', we have a code brown situation.
      Rachel: Can you please, please take care of it for me?
      Ross: Alright... but you have to do one sometime.

    • Gavin: I'm not a temp... I was transferred here from another department.
      Rachel: Oh, yeah... what department was that? ...the, uh, Jerk department?
      Gavin: Oh... they didn't tell me about your quick wit.
      Rachel: Ah-h-h! Well, did they mention that I'm rubber and you're glue?

    • Phoebe: (about the director) So, what did he say?
      Joey: Well, he can be a little rough around the edges, so I'm gonna replace a word he used a lot, with the word "puppy." ...Okay, so he said, "If your puppy friend doesn't get her puppy act together, I'm gonna fire her mother-puppy ass."

    • Rachel: (about Emma) Can you please take care of her for today?
      Ross: Absolutely. Just give me your breasts and we'll be on our way.

    • Ross: (to Emma) We'll have fun, won't we? Yes, we will, yes we will. (gives Emma a kiss, and her pink bow sticks to his forehead)
      Rachel: Ross?
      Ross: Huh?
      Rachel: (smiling coquettishly) You're pretty.

    • Ross: So you're gonna have to tell Monica you don't want to have a baby right now?
      Chandler: Yeah.
      Ross: (giving him a hug) Goodbye...

    • Monica: Okay, it's baby time! ...pants off, Bing! (spotting Ross) Didn't see you there, Geller!

    • Rachel: I actually made a few changes, but I think I'm caught up on everything. So ask me anything!
      Gavin: How do you fix the chair?
      Rachel: Except that!

    • Monica: You faked it? You couldn't have faked it.
      Chandler: Oh, yes you can... You just make the faces and the noises.
      Monica: Guys can fake it?! Unbelievable. The one thing that's ours!
