The One with Ross's Teeth

Aired Thursday 8:00 PM Nov 18, 1999 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • 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.

    • Monica: (coming into Central Perk) Hey, guys!
      Chandler: How was your breakfast with Hillary?
      Monica: It was okay... She's still kinda depressed because... she broke up with her boyfriend...
      Ross: What... 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: (to Monica) Oh... are you 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: Or maybe... it's because you're all hangin' around here at 11:30 on a Wednesday...

    • Joey: (to his new roommate, Janine) ...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) Alright... I can make my peace with the clean, dry towels.

    • Joey: (picking up a glass dish) ...Also, what is with these chips you bought...?
      Janine: No-no-no... it's potpourri... you're supposed to smell it...?
      Joey: (he takes a deep sniff) Well, that's 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... Hillary's blind, right?
      Monica: (mostly to Chandler) She will be after tonight...

    • (Rachel comes 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: Y'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... (seeing Chandler's look of devastation) I'm sorry... We do, we do! I don't know why I said that.

    • Joey: Hey, Chandler! C'mon 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... (realizing how he just reacted) 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!!
