Who was the Episode MVP ?


    Very creative :) you will laugh if you have a sense of humor
  • Phoebe makes out with the copy guy.

    Well, I guess you see more of Rachel's work life in this episode as Ralph Lauren, I see the bond that Rachel & Phoebe have now. Now that their roommates, I sense a lot of new plots coming in involving them, like this one for instance. Phoebe makes out with the copy guy, tells Rachel it was Ralph Lauren and Rachel tells her boss, which escalates in to a bunch of rumors going on in the office. Joey being turned in to a girl was funny. Ross's white teeth were funnier, I like how the girl freaked out when she saw them. Great.moreless
  • Ross has really white teeth.

    This episode is again another funny episodes. The best part about it is that Ross put teeth whitener on his teeth and his teeth end up being glow in the dark. He always gets in these bad predicaments. It is so funny. Also, Joey is by being bothered about all the girly things in his apartment. It is funny though because by the end of the episode, he starts to enjoy everything. The other parts of the episode aren't really that great or memorable. I still enjoy it because of Ross' glow in the dark teeth and because Joey likes having a girly apartment.moreless

  • Ross bleaches his teeth for a date with Monica's co-worker. Chandler trys to convice that Janine is trying to take over his apartment. Rachel spreads rumors that Phoebe slept with her boss or what she thinks.moreless

    It was a good episode but not one of my favorite of this season so far. I think it would be better if Ross didn't bleach his teeth because his date wouldn't really care! His date should of known that there was something weird with Ross. Phoebe is so funny not even knowing that the guy was her boss. Rachel is such a gossip and wants her other boss to like her. When Rachel said that she quit her other job a year ago I really don't think it was that long because wasn't that like the middle of season 5 or end and it is only the beginning of season 6. Hmmmm?moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Continuity: Phoebe thinks Rachel still works at Bloomingdale's. Rachel corrects her, saying she's been working at Ralph Lauren for a year. However, she got the job at Ralph Lauren in "The One with Rachel's Inadvertent Kiss" which was in March. This episode takes place in November, meaning she has been working for Ralph Lauren eight months, not a year.

    • Goof: In the coffeehouse, Ross is holding a red folder. When he says "Maybe it's a universal thing", the folder disappears. In the next shot the folder is back, but when the camera angle changes and Ross stands up, the folder is gone again.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Ross: Well, is this Hillary your hot assistant chef Hillary?
      Monica: Yeah.
      Ross: The one that always stares at me when I come in?
      Monica: No, the one who looked at you once because you got in her way.

    • Rachel: Oh you're setting Ross up with someone? Does she have a wedding dress?

    • (Phoebe wants to use the copy machine at Ralph Lauren's)
      : (to Phoebe) Just come by at lunch so that my boss doesn't see you, 'cause Kim will just freak out... and she already doesn't like me very much.
      Chandler: Oh, that's weird. I don't think my boss likes me, either.
      Monica: I don't think mine likes me, either.
      Ross: Maybe it's a universal thing.
      Joey: Yeah. Or maybe it's because you're all hanging around here at 11:30 on a Wednesday.

    • Joey: And what is with the really hot stick in the bathroom?
      Janine: It's a curling iron.

    • (Joey is upset because Janine has made too many "girlie" changes to the apartment)
      : Okay my towels for instance. I come into the bathroom here and my towel is not on the floor where I keep it. It's up here on some hook, and... smells different!
      Janine: It's clean!
      Joey: It feels different!
      Janine: It's dry!
      Joey: (thinks about it) Okay, I guess I can make my peace with the clean, dry towels.

    • Joey: What's with these chips?
      Janine: Joey, it's pot-pourri... you smell it.
      Joey: (he smells it) Why, that's just like summer in a bowl!

    • Monica: What happened to your teeth?
      Ross: I whitened them.
      Chandler: Really?
      Ross: Yeah... Whaddaya think?
      Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
      Ross: C'mon, seriously...
      Monica: Ross, they're really, really, really white!
      Chandler: Yeah, what was wrong with your old... human teeth?
      Ross: Well, I did leave the gel on a little longer than it said to.
      Monica: How much longer?
      Ross: Uh, uh.... a day.
      Monica: Ross, you know that tonight is your date with Hillary?
      Ross: I know! That's why I did it! C'mon, are they really that bad?
      Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
      Monica: (mostly to Chandler) She will be after tonight.

    • (Rachel is coming into Central Perk)
      : Hey, Rach', uh... do you notice anything?
      Rachel: Yeah, your teeth? Yes. I saw them from outside.

    • Monica: I can't believe Phoebe made out with Ralph Lauren! I am so jealous!
      Chandler: Hi. I'm Chandler, your live-in boyfriend.

    • Monica: (about making sachets) Now our drawers will smell nice, and we didn't waste these pantyhose.
      Chandler: Yes, God forbid we should throw out old underwear.

    • (Monica's hobbies have made Chandler feel a little "girlish")
      Monica: Go over to Joey's. Go over to Joey's, and, and drink some beer, and... hammer up some drywall!
      Chandler: You know, when guys hang out, they don't just drink beer and hammer up drywall.
      Monica: When girls hang out, we don't have pillow fights in our underwear. (Chandler looks devastated) I'm sorry. We do, we do! I don't know why I said that.

    • Joey: Hey, Chandler! Come on in. We're knitting potholders!
      Chandler: No thanks, Josephine.

    • Chandler: (to Joey) You're arranging flowers! You got dead flowers! You got a picture, a picture, of a baby dressed like flowers!

    • Chandler: Now I've upset you? What did I say?
      Joey: (pouting) It's not what you said, it's just the way you said it... Oh, my God! I'm a woman!

    • Hillary: (about Ross's whitened teeth glowing in the black light) Are those your teeth?!
      Ross: Oh, you can see them, huh?
      Hillary: Yes. They're insanely white.
      Ross: I, I did that for you.
      Hillary: What's the matter with you?
      Ross: What's the matter with me?! You've got a black light! It's 1999!!
