  • Quotes

    • Monica: (about Joey's name being an answer on a crossword puzzle) This is so cool!
      We know "3 Down". (touches Joey's arm) I'm touching "3 Down".
      Joey: Yeah you are, baby.
      Monica: "3 Down" knows I'm married. What's "3 Down" doing?

    • Rachel: Come on Joey, you will totally keep it in check this time. And plus, y'know, the publicity would be really good for your career... and you deserve that. And if you do the interview, you could mention--oh, I don't know--"gal pal Rachel Green"?
      Chandler: Is that "gal pal" spelled "L-O-S-E-R"?

    • Joey: You guys have to be at the next table so you can stop me if I, y'know, start to say something stupid...
      Ross: Just then, or all the time? ...because we have jobs, y'know.

    • Phoebe: I'm gonna get some coffee, anyone want anything?
      Rachel: Oh yeah, I'd actually love a blueberry muffin and a chamomile tea.
      Ross: Uh, double latte, extra foam.
      Chandler: And a bagel with only--
      Phoebe: I was just being polite!

    • Monica: (out of the side of her mouth) Do we look weird?
      Chandler: (out of the side of his mouth) No. We just look like four people with neck problems... who talk like this.

    • Joey: In my spare time, I read to the blind. And I'm also a mento, for kids.
      Interviewer: A Mento...?
      Joey: You know, a mento--a role-model.
      Interviewer: A Mento...
      Joey: Right.
      Interviewer: Like the candy...?
      Joey: Matter of fact, I do.

    • Phoebe: I just think that you don't expect someone so hot to be so sweet.
      Interviewer: Oh, I like that. What's your name?
      Phoebe: Um, Phoebe Buffay.
      Interviewer: How do you spell that so we can get it right?
      Phoebe: Oh, okay. It's "P" as in "Phoebe", "H" as in "Hoebe", "O" as in "Obe", "E" as in "Ebe", "B" as in "Bebe" and "E" as in... "'Ello there, mate!"

    • Interviewer: How does it feel to have a huge gay fan base?
      Joey: Really? Wow! ...I don't even know any huge gay people.
      Chandler: (aside to the others) It hurts me... It physically hurts me!

    • Interviewer: One last question. Other than Days of Our Lives, what other soap operas do you watch?
      Joey: Oh, I don't watch soap operas. I mean, excuse me... I have a life, y'know?
      Interviewer: Thank-you. I'm sure the readers of Soap Opera Digest will be very interested to hear that.
