  • Trivia

    • Goof: This episode continues from the previous one, "The One Where Joey Loses His Insurance," where Rachel storms into Ross's class at NYU. However, when Ross and Rachel storm into Monica's apartment, the four other friends are wearing completely different outfits from the previous episode.

    • Goof: When Phoebe, Chandler, and Monica are changing the triplet's diapers, it is clear that baby Chandler, which is supposed to be a girl, is actually a boy.

    • Goof: When Phoebe is babysitting alone, right before Phoebe asks why there are only two triplets, the farthest baby falls over. When the camera angle changes, the baby is sitting up again.

    • Goof: When Phoebe is babysitting the triplets on her own, she turns away to put a vase in the bin and when she turns back the baby is gone. At the edge of the shot you can see a person moving to place the baby in the drawer.

  • Quotes

    • Monica: (About the mess in her apartment) But the mess!
      Chandler: Is not as important as the fact that Phoebe took care of the babies all by herself.
      Monica: You're right. You're right, I shouldn't be freaking out. 'Cause this is what it's going to be like when you and I have babies. When will that be?
      Chandler: Phoebe, would you take a look at this mess!

    • Ross: I gotta say, I know I divorce a lot of women, never thought I'd be divorcing you.
      Rachel: I know. I always thought if you and I got married that would be the one that stuck. And it wouldn't be a secret, and we wouldn't have our wedding dinner at Pizza Hut.
      Ross: Oh, God. Did I even treat?
      Rachel: It was on the house, a newlywed special.
      Ross: That may be the most depressing thing I've ever heard.

    • Ross: You've done a lot of stupid stuff, too, okay?
      Rachel: Oh, name one stupid thing that is as stupid as this one.
      Ross: Okay, how about you flew to London to stop my wedding? Ah, how about you told me you loved me after I was already married?
      Rachel: Wait a minute! That was different, I did those things because I was in love with you.
      Ross: Yeah, right! (Rachel begins to understand) You're right, that's very different.

    • Judge: That's not the way the legal system works. This process is based on an objective review of the facts, not the lies.
      Rachel: Objection!
      Judge: It doesn't work like that either.
      Rachel: Overruled!
      Ross: Oh, stop it.

    • Monica: (Changing the babies diapers) So great! This is exactly how we set the plates at the restaurant!
      Phoebe: Yeah? Well this is not what I ordered.

    • Rachel: Why did you do this Ross? And I don't wanna hear about three failed marriages!
      Ross: Look, if you had two failed marriages you would understand.
      Rachel: Well thanks to you, I'm half way there!

    • Ross: (Looking at Joey's outfit) Did a Porsche throw up on you?

    • Monica: Oh God. All this time we were watching the babies and no one was looking after Chandler!

    • Ross: Look, Rach. I was going to tell you. I just wanted to do it my own way.
      Rachel: Ah, yes. Silently, with no words.

    • Chandler: Hi.
      Phoebe: How do you feel?
      Chandler: Well, let's just say that Krog will be fully equipped to destroy the universe again in 12 to 14 hours.
      Phoebe: Okay. So, I totally took care of the babies all by myself. I fed them, bathed them and put them to bed.
      (Chandler looks at the mess in Monica's apartment)
      Chandler: And protected them from a tornado?

    • Joey: (To Ross and Rachel) Hi. How are the Gellers?
      Rachel: Don't call us that.

    • Monica: I wonder what age it is that you stop being able to put both legs behind your head.
      Phoebe: Oh, I can still do that.
      Monica: How are you still single?

    • Chandler: Check it out. Check it out. When the babies wake up, they can meet Krog.
      Monica: Chandler, what are you doing? That thing could put someone's eye out.
      Chandler: He can do more than that. He can destroy the universe.
      Phoebe: No. Chandler, they could swallow one of those little parts. And also, look at his smooth area. That's just going to mess them up.
      Monica: It's just not an appropriate toy for 1 year olds. Or 30 year olds.
      Chandler: They're not going to swallow anything. You guys are being way too overprotective. When I was a kid my mom used to just throw me into a pile of broken glass.
      Phoebe: What?
      Chandler: Glass, sand, whatever.

    • Joey: Oh, I'm having the best morning. That Porsche I've got the keys to - it's still there.
      Chandler: Shocking, since you still have the keys.

    • Chandler: Ross, just for my own peace of mind you're not married to any more of us, are you?

    • Ross: (To Rachel) Okay, maybe it wasn't my best decision but I just couldn't face another failed marriage.
      Chandler: Let me just jump in and ask. At what point did you think this was a successful marriage?

    • Rachel: I cannot believe you didn't tell me we are still married.
      Ross: Look, I was going to tell you.
      Rachel: When? After the birth of our first secret child?

    • Chandler: All right, I thought about it and you're right. Maybe Krog isn't a safe toy.
      Monica: Good. What made you change your mind?
      Chandler: I swallowed his sonic blaster gun.

    • Rachel: I am so mad at you Ross! I don't think I have ever been this angry!
      Ross: What about the time I said we were on a break?

    • Monica: Pheebs, it's going great. Look at Chandler with little baby-girl Chandler.
      Chandler: "Little baby-girl Chandler," where I have heard that before? Oh right, Coach Reuben.

    • Joey: Hey, somebody left their keys. Oh, to a Porsche! Hey Gunther, these yours?
      Gunther: Yeah, that's what I drive. I make four bucks an hour. I saved up for... 350 years.
