The One Where Ross and Rachel...You Know

Aired Thursday 8:00 PM Feb 08, 1996 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Phoebe and Monica first enter Richard's apartment, they walk right into his kitchen and set up there for the catering event. During Richard's party, Richard opens one of the doors in the kitchen (the same one the girls entered through) and it opens to the party, not the hallway.

      Note: There are two doors in Richard's kitchen. The knobless door behind Monica and Phoebe leads to the party, the other door is the one that the girls entered through.

    • When Chandler is ordering the pizzas, he tells the recipient to send them to Apartment 20 - Geller/Green. He should know that neither Monica nor Rachel is home. At the time, Monica is catering and Rachel is on her date with Ross.

    • Goof: While Ross is rearranging the exhibit, a mic is briefly visible at the top of the screen.

    • In this episode, Rachel says that she didn't want to wear her glasses on their first date. No one ever mentions Rachel's glasses or even contacts ever again. In The One with Joey's Big Break it is also mentioned that Rachel doesn't like to put things in his eyes.

    • Trivia: When Ross and Rachel are in the auditorium, the music heard is by Chris Isaak, who appeared in a previous episode.

      Richard: Yeah, that's my job. All right, look up... look down, now open your eyes, now look down. That's right, look into the light. Now look at me... Okay. Your eyes look good. Those are good eyes.

    • Ross: Hi.
      Chandler & Joey: Hey.
      Joey: What are you doing here? Aren't you supposed to be out with Rachel?
      Ross: That was 14 hours ago.

    • Rachel: (Starting to laugh) I'm sorry. Oh God, I'm sorry, it's just that when you moved your hands down to my butt, it was like "Woah, Ross's hands are on my butt!" Sorry.

    • Phoebe: (About Richard) Okay, so what, you're just never gonna see him again?
      Monica: Not never. I mean, I'm gonna see him tomorrow at my eye appointment.
      Phoebe: Didn't you, like, just get your eyes checked?
      Monica: Well yeah, but, you know, uh, twenty seven is a dangerous eye age.

    • Monica: You've got to get back out there, it's your party.
      Richard: But they're so dull. They're all ophthamologists.
      Monica: You're an ophthamologist!
      Richard: Only because my parents wanted me to be. I wanted to be a sheriff.

    • Richard: Um, I'm sorry, is Monica Geller coming? I was told she was.
      Monica: Dr. Burke, it, it's me.
      Richard: Monica? My God, you used to be so... I mean you, you, you, you must have lost like... You look great.

    • Rachel: So, uh, how was your day?
      Ross: Oh you know, pretty much the usual, uh, sun shining, birds chirping.
      Rachel: Really? Mine too.
      Phoebe: (Interrupting Ross and Rachel's sweet talk) Hey cool, mine too.

    • Joey: All right, no peeking. No peeking, no peeking, no peeking.
      Chandler: All right, all right, but you better be wearing clothes when I open my eyes.

    • Rachel: (Checking to see if Monica's home, because she is kissing Ross) Monica!
      Ross: It would really help when I'm kissing you if you didn't shout out my sister's name.

    • Ross: Listen, I'm sorry I had to work tonight.
      Rachel: Oh, that's okay. You were worth the wait. And I don't just mean tonight.
      (Ross and Rachel kiss)
      Ross: You're not laughing.
      Rachel: This time it's not so funny.

    • Chandler: (On the phone) Uh, two larges, extra cheese on both. But listen, don't ring the buzzer for 19. Ring 20. Geller/Greene. They'll let you in, okay? If you buzz our door, there's no tip for you. Okay, thanks. (Hangs up phone) Pizza's on the way. I told you we wouldn't have to get up.
      Joey: What if we have to pee?
      Chandler: (Reaching for phone) I'll cancel the sodas.

    • Phoebe: I can't believe two cows made the ultimate sacrifice so you guys could watch TV with your feet up.
      Chandler: Well, they were chair-shaped cows. They never would have survived in the wild.

    • Ross: (On the phone) Whoa, whoa, whoa! Australopithicus isn't supposed to be in that display! No. No. No, no, Homo-habilus was erect, Australopithicus was never fully erect.
      Chandler: Well, maybe he was nervous.
