    • Goof: Throughout the episode, the mirror on Phoebe's bike is on the left handle and the bell is on the right. However, during the tag scene when she can finally ride, suddenly the mirror is on the right handle and the bell is on the left.

    • Goof: When Phoebe argues with Ross about why she has to learn to ride a bike and sits down on the swing, her scarf has one end over her left shoulder and the other down her left front. When the shot changes, her scarf has one end over her right shoulder and the other down her right front. When the shot changes again, her scarf switches back to her left shoulder.

  • Quotes

    • Chandler: Okay... let me just straighten out your helmet there.
      Ben: Thanks, Daddy.
      Ross: No, no. One daddy. Two mommies.

    • Phoebe: His first big kid's bike. This is so exciting!
      Monica: Oh yeah, I remember mine! Oh, it was my sixth birthday. My dad took me to the park. I got on it, and... it bent.

    • Phoebe: I never had a bike of my own.
      Ross: What?
      Phoebe: Well, we didn't have a lot of money. But the girl across the street had the best bike! It was pink, and it had rainbow-colored tassels hanging off the handle grips... and, and, and a bell... and this big, white wicker-basket with those plastic daisies stuck on...
      Chandler: That sounds like my first bike.
      (They all turn and look at him.)
      Chandler: My dad gave me his old one.

    • Monica: (about Phoebe's neighbor's bike) Did the girl ever let you ride it?
      Phoebe: No. But, she gave me the box that it came in. It had a picture of the bike on the front. So, I would sit on it and my stepdad would drag me around the backyard.
      Ross: That is so unfair.
      Phoebe: Not really. I got to drag him around too.

    • Monica: I'm gonna hang this basket on the door, and when the neighbors walk by they can all take a piece.
      Chandler: But we don't know the neighbors.
      Joey: I do! There's, uh, let's see, (counting on his fingers) "Guy With A Mustache", "Smokes-A-Lot Lady", some kids I've seen, and a red-haired guy who does not like to be called "Rusty".
      Monica: Oh, oh, I know that guy! He also doesn't like it when you say, "Back off Howdy Doody, I'm engaged!"
      Chandler: You got hit on by Fire Beard?!

    • Monica: This is exactly why I'm making this candy. We can learn their names and get to know our neighbors.
      Chandler: Wouldn't it be easier if we just moved?

    • Rachel: (cheerfully) Good morning!
      Chandler: Ahh, somebody's in a good mood!
      Rachel: Well, why shouldn't I be? I have great friends! I have a wonderful job!
      Monica: Where you can make out with your assistant.
      Rachel: Come on, it's not a big deal! We stayed up all night coming up with a plan so that us dating will not be a problem.
      Monica: Oh yeah, what's the plan?
      Rachel: (searching) We... We are not... going to let it... be a problem.

    • Rachel: Oh Monica, come on. You know I don't sleep with guys on the first date!
      Monica: Matt Wire, Mark Lynn, Ben Wise...
      Rachel: ...Anymore!

    • Monica: Ross! The neighbors ate all my candy!
      Ross: Mine stole my newspaper! It's like a crime wave!

    • Phoebe: Oh, my God! My first bike! Thank you for the best present I've ever gotten.
      Ross: (touched) You're welcome.
      Phoebe: (starts to leave, then stops) Oh, and Chandler's about to cry.
      Chandler: (tearfully) Am not!

    • Gary: (knocking on Monica's door at 4am) Hi!
      Monica: Hi. Do you know what time it is?
      Gary: It's candy time! My roommate says that they taste like little drops of heaven.
      Monica: Oh please! (to Chandler) Did you hear that? "Little drops of heaven".
      Chandler: (laughs desperately) Four A-M!

    • Gary: You live in this building?
      Monica: Yes.
      Gary: Mm!! Seems like I would have remembered you!
      Chandler: Mm!! 'Night, Gar'!

    • Chandler(incredulous) Is there anybody in this building that does not hit on you?!
      Monica: Smokes-a-Lot Lady. (thinks about it) Oh, wait. That is not true.

    • Rachel: So did you read your evaluation yet?
      Tag: No... It was marked "Confidential". I just sent it down to Human Resources.
      Rachel: (panicked) Okay please, you're kidding right? I wrote that one as a joke for you!
      Tag: A joke they would appreciate?
      Rachel: I'm thinkin' no.
      Tag: What did you say?
      Rachel: Um, I said I thought you were a good kisser, and uh, and that I like your teeny-tiny tushy.
      Tag: No, not my tushy.
      Rachel: Well, it gets worse. When asked if you take initiative I wrote, "Yes, he was able to unhook my bra with minimal supervision," and under "Problems with Performance" I wrote, "Dear God, I hope not," and then, uh, then I drew a little smiley face, and then a small pornographic sketch.

    • Monica: Ross! That is so sweet of you to get Phoebe that bike! When I heard the story, I almost cried.
      Joey: Almost cried, huh? Hear that Chandler? Almost cried!
      Chandler: Hey, you cry every time somebody talks about Titanic!
      Joey: (sobbing) Those two only had each other!

    • Rachel: (about her evaluation of Tag) Maybe it's not as bad as I think. You know, maybe they didn't take it the way I meant it.
      Chandler: Absolutely! You know, because "tushy", can mean both "ass", and "good worker".

    • Joey: (watching the discussion between Monica and a neighbor) Hey Chandler, do we know that lady?
      Chandler: Maybe. Isn't she the woman who lives below you and has sex really loud?
      Monica: (still talking to the woman) All right, I'll do it just this once! But you can't tell anybody!
      Woman: (excited) Yes! Yes! Please, just give it to me!
      Joey & Chandler: Yeah, that's her.

    • Chandler: Is that why you became a chef? So that people would like you?
      Monica: Oh, you really want to talk about getting people to like you, huh funny man?

    • Ross: (to Monica, who is making candy) Need some help?
      Monica: No! You don't know the system! I don't need nobody messing with the system!
      Ross: By the way, the week before your wedding, you may not see a lot of me.

    • Ross: All right, you know what? If you are not going to learn how to ride this bike, then I'm sorry. I'm just gonna have to take it back.
      Phoebe: What?! Why?!
      Ross: Because! Because, it's... It'd be like you having this guitar and never playing it. Okay? this guitar wants to be played! And this bike wants to be ridden and, and if you don't ride it you're killing its spirit! (dramatically) The bike is dying.
      Phoebe: All right. If you care enough to make up that load of crap, okay.
      Ross: Great! Great! You're making the bike very happy.
      Phoebe: (facetiously) Okay, Ross!
      (Ross leaves)
      Phoebe: (whispering to the bike) Please don't die!

    • Chandler: (to crowd) I bet none of you even knows her name.
      Guy: Candy Lady?
      Chandler: No, not "Candy Lady"!
      Joey: If we know her name, can we get candy?!

    • Monica: Did you smoke?
      Chandler: No! Smokes-A-Lot Lady blew smoke directly into my mouth.

    • Chandler: Are you okay?
      Monica: I'm fine, but it was really scary there for a while. And someone slipped a threatening note under the door!
      Joey: (grabbing the note) Oh, yeah. Sorry about that... "Mob mentality" or whatever.
