    • Continuity: When Phoebe still think Rachel works at Bloomingdale's, Rachel tells her she has 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 had been working for Ralph Lauren 8 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.

    • 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 a matter with you?
      Ross: What's a matter with me? You've got a black light. It's 1999!

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

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

    • 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.

    • Ross: Rachel, do you notice anything...?
      Rachel: Your teeth? Yes, I saw them from outside.

    • 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: It's not what you said, it's just the way you said it. Oh, my God! I'm a woman!

    • 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.

    • Monica: What happened to your teeth?
      Ross: I whitened them.
      Chandler: Really?
      Ross: Yeah, what... what do you think?
      Monica: Well, uh, I think I shouldn't look directly at them.
      Ross: Come on, 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! Come on, are they really that bad?
      Chandler: No. No, no, no, you'll be fine. Hilary's blind, right?
      Monica: She will be after tonight.

    • Rachel: 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: 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!

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

    • Joey: But, okay my towels for instance. I come in to the bathroom here and my towel is not on the floor where 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 this) Okay, I guess I can make my peace with the clean dry towels.

    • Joey: And what is with the really hot stick in the bathroom?

      Janine: It's a curling iron.
