    Loved this episode. I think this has alot of comedy, perhaps more than alot of the other episodes. This episode is different because it is mainly set around Pheobe and Mike. We hardly get to see much of mike and he is really quite funny. Pheobes craziness and weirdness makes this show.Loved this episode.

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Joey: (on the phone) I mean, this soap opera is a great gig, but... am I missing opportunities? You know, I've always thought of myself as a serious actor. I mean, should I be trying to do more independent movies?
      (a wider shot reveals he is on the phone with the young girl from the house on Long Island, Mackenzie)
      Mackenzie: I don't know... You know what? I'm gonna put you on with my bear. Hold on. (puts the phone at the bears ear)
      Joey: Hey, Bear, I need some career advice.

    • Mackenzie: Who are you?
      Joey: I'm Joey. My idiot friends are buying the house.
      Mackenzie: I'm Mackenzie. My idiot parents are selling the house.

    • Phoebe: Hey Mon, was it weird changing your name to Geller-Bing?
      Monica: No, no. It felt nice to acknowledge this.
      Phoebe: Where did you go to do it?
      Monica: Hum the... the ministry... of names... bureau...

    • Chandler: We've got a couple of things we've got to check out at the new house. You want to come with us?
      Joey: No, thank you.
      Monica: All right. I know you're not happy about us moving, but you're the only one who hasn't seen the house.
      Chandler: Yeah, come with us. You'll see how close it is to the city.
      Joey: But no, it's not close. You said it was in escrow? I couldn't even find it on the map.

    • Chandler: How'd the interview go?
      Rachel: Oh! It's not good.
      Chandler: You know, I always feel that way after an interview. I'll bet it went better than you think.
      Rachel: Well, I didn't get the job at Gucci and I got fired from Ralph Lauren.
      Chandler: That is a bad interview.

    • Joey: This place is great. I'm so happy for you guys. Although, you know, I hope you like fungus.
      Chandler: What?
      Joey: Fungus! Yeah. Place is full of it.
      Monica: No, it's not. We had an inspection and they didn't find anything.
      Joey: Okay. Then I guess I have dry eyes and a scratchy throat for no reason.
      Monica: Maybe because you hung your head out of the window like a dog the whole ride here.
      Joey: Maybe. So this is the living room huh? Oh, it's pretty dark.
      Monica: No, it's not!
      Joey: Are you kiddin'? I think I just saw a bat in the corner!
      Chandler: When your head was hanging out the window, it didn't hit a mailbox, did it?

    • Ross: See? I told you something good would come along. And he seemed really nice. I've met him before?
      Rachel: Ross! That's Mark. From Bloomingdales? You were insanely jealous of him.
      Ross: That is Mark?
      Rachel: Yes.
      Ross: I hate that guy! No, no, no, you cannot go to dinner with him.
      Rachel: What? You don't want me to get a job?
      Ross: Oh yeah, I'm sure he's gonna give you a job. Maybe make you his sexretary.

    • Ross: Who said something better would come along, huh? You didn't believe me. I told you everything was gonna work out. You know what? This calls for a bottle of Israels finest.
      Rachel: The job is in Paris. (They all stare at each other.)

    • Ross: How was dinner?
      Rachel: Oh, it was great. Mark is so sweet.
      Ross: Oh yeah? Yeah? I wonder why? What could that smarmy letch possibly want?
      Rachel: Oh Ross, come on. He's happily married. His wife just had twins.
      Ross: Should we send something?

    • Ross: Gunther, we need six glasses.
      Gunther: Really? You're inviting me to have some?
      Ross: Oh, I thought Joey was here. Then five would be good. (Realizes what he did) Wow, I'm gonna get a loogie in my coffee tomorrow.

    • Joey: I bet you I can even get Mike to do that thing. What is it?
      (Phoebe whisper's into Joey's ear)
      Joey: I am not gonna help you do that!

    • Joey: Guess what? I finally got that seed out of my teeth.
      Monica: I don't know who I'm happiest for.
      Phoebe: I do. He's been working on that all day.

    • Phoebe: (To Monica and Chandler) Apparently you can change it to anything you want. So I thought, all right, here's an opportunity to be creative. So meet Princess Consuela Banana Hammock.

    • Rachel: (To maitre d') Hi, I'm here to see Mr Campbell with Gucci. The reservation is probably under Gucci. It's spelled like "Gukky" which could be confusing.

    • Ross: That guy Mark, from Bloomingdale's. She thinks he's just being nice to her. But I know he really wants to sleep with her.
      Chandler: It's seven years ago. My time machine worked!

    • Joey: I just talked to the little girl who lives here and she made me feel a lot better.
      Chandler: Joey, a girl used to live here, but she died like, 30 years ago.
      Joey: What?!
      Chandler: No, I'm just messing with you.
      Joey: That's not funny! You know how scared I am of little girl ghosts!

    • Joey: Oh, I know! We can go in there and you can tell them the house is haunted.
      Mackenzie: What are you, eight?
      Joey: Well, I don't see you coming up with any bright ideas!
      Mackenzie: I don't have any good ideas. I am eight.

    • Mike: Aren't you going to introduce me?
      Phoebe: This is my husband... Crap Bag.
      Mike: If you need help remembering it, just think of a bag of crap.
