      (They both laugh as Ross heads back to the bathroom.)
      Joey: (To Chandler) You're fake laughing too, right?

  • Allusions

    • Joey: Did you know he taped over my Baywatch tape with some show about bugs?

      Baywatch was an American television series about the lifeguards who patrol the crowded beaches of Los Angeles County, California. The show was notorious for its female cast members wearing skimpy bathing suits and running in slow motion.

    • Ross: (On the answering machine message) We will, we will call you back.

      The message is a parody of Queen's "We Will Rock You."
