      Phoebe: (laughs harder) They make it so funny!

    • Chandler: You don't have to stop having fun just because I'm here. Kathy didn't cheat on all of you. (to Joey) Well... except you.

    • Joey: (about Chandler getting over Kathy) Look, there's nothin' I can do for him right now... he's still in his sweat pants. That's only phase one... I'll be back for phase two--I would never miss phase two...
      Monica: What's phase two?
      Joey: Gettin' drunk and goin' to a strip club!

    • Joshua: I invested in this nightclub and it's opening tonight. Would you like to come?
      Rachel: Yeah! That would be great!
      Joshua: You're into hardcore S&M right?
      Rachel: (flustered) Well, I--I guess I...
      Joshua: I'm kidding!

    • Ross: (to Chandler) C'mon man, just take the sweats off, okay? Just take 'em off and we'll have some fun...

    • Monica: So... How did it go with Joshua, last night?
      Rachel: Oh, well... I didn't see Joshua, but... I did punch a girl in the face.
      Monica: What...?
      Phoebe: Why...?
      Rachel: The whole night was horrible... It was pouring down rain, and when I got there, there was no "Rachel Green" on the list... but there was a "Rachel Greep".
      Phoebe: Ohhh... So, did you get to meet her?
      Rachel: No. There is no Rachel Greep. But then this other girl overheard us and she was all, "I'm Rachel Greep! I'm Rachel Greep!", and he let her right in.
      Monica: So you hit her in the face?
      Rachel: No, she was already in, but then this big bitch behind me tried to steal my umbrella... I clocked her.

    • Rachel: All I wanted was a few hours outside of work to see Joshua, so he can go ahead and start falling in love with me.

    • Phoebe: (sympathetically to Rachel) Aww, Pheebs.
      Rachel: Honey, that's your name.
      Phoebe: That's short for "Phoebe?" I thought that's just what we called each other.

    • Chandler: Where are the guys? I'm ready to get drunk and see some strippers.

    • Monica: (about Ross and Emily) Why do you care so much, anyway?
      Rachel: (unconvincingly) I don't care... Alright, y'know what? I'm just upset that I'm getting nowhere with Joshua... Still, you do not just meet someone and go flitting off to Vermont!
      Monica: Well, when you first met Barry, you... flitted off to Vail.
      Rachel: Oh, y'know... could you just for once, not remember every little thing!

    • Monica: (to Chandler, who's stripping down to his sweatpants) What are you doing?! Chandler! You can't just go back a phase!
      Chandler: Yes you can. You're thinking about time... you can't go back in time.

    • Phoebe: (to Chandler) Y'know, you... you just stop being such a wuss! ...and get those off and you come with us and watch naked girls dance around!

    • Phoebe: (to a man smoking beside her at the strip club) Um, no. You have to put that out, 'cause I'm pregnant...
      Smoker: (deadpan) Maybe you and your baby should go to another strip club.
      Phoebe: Uh-huh-huh... It's not my baby...

    • Chandler: Y'know what? I'm just gonna go home and call Kathy.
      Phoebe: If you think it'll help...
      Chandler: No! That was a test! Y'know, in a couple of hours I'm gonna get really drunk, and I'm gonna want to call Kathy, and you guys are gonna have to stop me! And then after that, I'm gonna be so drunk, I'm gonna wanna call Janice!
      Phoebe: You should! How is she?

    • Charlton Heston: (to Joey) Put some pants on, kid, so I can kick your butt!

    • Chandler: C'mon... Lemme see that smile...
      Joey: (pouting) I don't wanna.
      Chandler: Please...
      Joey: I wanted to go to the strip club!
      Chandler: I know, I know... But you're gonna have plenty of chances, okay? There are like... thousands of women out there who are just waiting to screw me over...

    • Ross: (to Rachel about Emily) You were so right...
      Rachel: What...?
      Ross: Uh, what you said... About us finally being in a place where we could really be happy for each other...?
      Rachel: Mmm-hmm...
      Ross: I mean, I, I admit... I, I wasn't quite there. Y'know, I mean... the thought of you and that, that Josh guy...
      Rachel: Joshua.
      Ross: Joshua... guy at that club, dancing... havin' a good time... The thought of it kinda... y'know...
      Rachel: Yeah, I...
      Ross: But now... But now, I'm totally there! I'm, I'm finally where you are...
