Season 6 Episode 5

The One with Joey's Porsche

Aired Thursday 8:00 PM Oct 21, 1999 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Trivia: Chandler's action figure "Krog" was an invention of the producers/writers of Friends. To present an existing action figure as a toy that was potentially dangerous to children, could be considered misleading and even invite lawsuits.

    • Trivia: Joey is right about the pronunciation of "Porsche". In North America, we're used to silent e's at the end of words, so tend to pronounce it "Porsh". Some will argue that it is pronounced "Porsh" in English, and "Por-shuh" in German, but since it is not a word, but rather a family name, it is properly pronounced "Por-shuh" in any language. Video of proper pronunciation (opens in separate window).

    • 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 return to 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

    • 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?

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

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

    • 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.

    • Joey: (at Central Perk) Hey, somebody left their keys... Oooh, to a Porsche! Hey Gunther, these yours?
      Gunther: Yeah, that's what I drive. I make four bucks an hour, I saved up for three hundred and fifty years.

    • Rachel: Why... Why did you do this?!
      Ross: I told you--
      Rachel: I don't wanna hear, "three failed marriages"! 
      Ross: Look, if you'd had two failed marriages, you'd understand.
      Rachel: Well, y'know what? Thanks to you, I'm halfway there.

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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: 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 one year-olds... or thirty 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.

    • Monica: (watching the babies move around) 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: Alright... I thought about it and maybe you're right... maybe Krog is not a safe toy.
      Monica: Good. What made you change your mind?
      Chandler: I swallowed his sonic blaster gun.

    • Monica: Dammit! Y'know, this whole time we were concentrating on the babies, and no one was watching Chandler!

    • Judge: (to Ross and Rachel who've been seeking an annulment) This process is based on an objective review of the facts, not of the lies.
      Rachel: Objection!
      Judge: It doesn't work like that either.
      Rachel: Overruled!
      Ross: Oh, stop it.

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

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

    • 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 twelve to fourteen hours.
      Phoebe: Okay. So, I totally took care of the babies all by myself. I fed 'em, bathed 'em and put 'em to bed.
      Chandler: (looking at the mess in Monica's apartment) And protected them from a tornado?

    • Monica: (about the condition of her apartment) But the mess!
      Chandler: (jumping in) not as important as the fact that Phoebe took care of the babies all by herself!
      Monica: (thinking better of it) You're right. You're right, I shouldn't freak out... 'cause this is what it's gonna be like when you and I have babies--when will that be?!
      Chandler: Phoebe, would you take a look at this mess!!

    • 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! (thinks about what she just said) You're right, that's very different.

    • Ross: (after Rachel has signed the divorce papers) 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! (laughs) Did, did I even treat?
      Rachel: No, it was on the house... It was a "newlywed special"...
      Ross: That may be the most depressing thing I've heard in my life.
