At that point, it was years since Monica moved out.

  • Quotes

    • Rachel: I was thinking of moving the couch over here.
      Joey: Why would you want to do that?
      Rachel: So that there will be a decent place for me to sit.
      Joey: Rach', there is a decent place to--
      Rachel: And your lap does not count!

    • Rachel: (after breaking Joey's chair) Joey, Joey I am so sorry.
      Joey: I told you not to move it! Rach', how would you feel if say, I wanted to move your mom, and you said don't, and I did it anyway and her head fell off?

    • Ross: What's wrong with this year?
      Phoebe: Well okay. It's already February and I've only given two massages, and they were both the worst tippers in the world!
      Monica: That was me and Ross.
      Phoebe: Oh, that's right!

    • Phoebe: It sounds better than the last telephone job I had. At least I probably won't have to say "spank" as much.
      Ross: What?
      Phoebe: Oh yeah, like you never called.

    • Supervisor: So, I think you're ready to sell toner. Do you have any last questions?
      Phoebe: No. (after a moment) Oh wait yes! I do, I do have one question. What is toner?

    • Monica: I used to love to play restaurant.
      Ross: Yeah, not as much as you loved to play, "uncooked batter eater".

    • Phoebe: (on the phone) I'm hearing what you're saying, but at our prices everyone needs toner.
      Earl: Not me.
      Phoebe: May I ask why?
      Earl: You wanna know why. You wanna know why?
      Phoebe: I surely do!
      Earl: Okay, I don't need any toner because I'm going to kill myself.
      Phoebe: (checking her list of scripted responses) Um... is that because you're out of toner?

    • Earl: I've been working here at this meaningless, dead-end job, and nobody even knows I exist.
      Phoebe: ...Chandler?

    • Chandler: (switching his chair with Joey's) If anyone asks, your name is Rosita.

    • Rachel: (about Rosita being fixed) Maybe somebody came in here and fixed it. Or something.
      Joey: Someone like an angel?
      Rachel: That's right, Joey. The chair angel came in and healed your chair.
      Joey: Get your non-believer ass out of my chair!

    • Monica: (to Rachel and Joey) Do you guys know what happened to Chandler's Barcalounger?
      Rachel: Oh yeah, Joey broke it. Had to get rid of it.
