    Good episode! Phoebe and Joey set Rachel and Ross on blind dates. Phoebe and Joey do that evil laugh. They decide to set Rachel with a boring guy that cried and Ross gets stood up. I kept thinking that Rachel would have a good time or Ross's date would of came. That gay waiter was there that was the same in TOW Joey Tells Rachel. Chandler and Monica end up watching Emma for the night and will cry when someone leaves the room. You would think Chandler or Monica would cheak at Joey's place. Duh! The end was great when Rachel and Ross found out and Joey and Phoebe had to run for it.moreless

    Monica and Chandler try to get pregnant while babysitting Emma and then in walks Joey disgusted at what he hears them doing in the next room. Phoebe and Joey trying to get Ross and Rachel back together and Ross and Rachel with their 'dates' What a brilliant episode of Season 9.moreless

    • Phoebe: (Watching Ross and Rachel through the window) Look, they're bonding! Oh, they're falling in love all over again! Oh, they see us. Oh, they look mad. Oh, they figured it out. Run!
      Joey: Where?
      Phoebe: Mexico!

    • Monica: Yeah, I guess having sex in front of a baby is kind of...
      Chandler: Gross? Scarring? The kind of thing you go to jail for?
      Monica: Yeah, I guess you're right.
      Chandler: You guess I'm right? You didn't want to do it with me in a lodge because you thought a deer was watching!
      Monica: Well, what kind of sick bastard does it in front of a deer?

    • Ross: Monica told me you had a blind date.
      Rachel: Yeah.
      Ross: I did, too.
      Rachel: Oh.
      Ross: But is it technically a date if the other person doesn't show up?
      Rachel: Oh, oh no. Do you think she walked in, saw you, and left?
      Ross: Why does everyone keep saying that?!

    • Rachel: Now, come on, come on, Steve. There must be something that you like about yourself.
      Steve: I do like my hair.
      Rachel: Really?

    • Chandler: Well, I think it's great that you're going on a date, you know? I mean, it sounds healthy. I mean, you have needs. Embrace your womanhood!
      Monica: You want a job? Turn off Oprah, and send out a resume!

    • Rachel: Phoebe set me up on a date.
      Monica: Oh, my God.
      Chandler: Wow.
      Rachel: Why? What's the big deal?
      Monica: Just figured, 'cause you and Ross are...
      Rachel: What, slept together a year and a half ago? Yeah, I'm all set.

    • Joey: (About Ross's blind date) She's this really boring woman. She's a teacher.
      Phoebe: A teacher?
      Joey: Yeah, She's really into history and foreign movies. Oh, and she loves puzzles. Come on, who loves puzzles?
      Phoebe: Well, Ross does. You're ruining the plan! Joey, you fixed him up with his perfect woman.
      Joey: Oh, my God, you're right! She even reads for pleasure!
      Phoebe: How do you even know a woman like that?
      Joey: What, I'm not allowed to know smart women?
      Phoebe: Joey?
      Joey: I met her at the library. I went in to pee.

    • Rachel: (About Emma, to Monica and Chandler) You guys are gonna have so much fun. She's at such a cute age. Oh, a couple of things. Now that she's eating solid food, she poops around the clock. And watch out for your hair because she likes to grab it. She's also in this phase where if you leave the room, she screams bloody murder, but, oh, thanks you guys. Have fun.

    • Joey: I just want you to know that with Rachel staying here and everything, all my feelings from before are totally over. And even if they weren't, when you accidentally walk in on a woman using a breast pump--
      Ross: Yeah, that'll do it.
      Joey: Wow! So, how are you?
      Ross: I'm, I'm okay.
      Joey: Really?
      Ross: Sure, I mean, do I wish me and Rachel living together would have worked out? Of course. You know, I'm disappointed, but it's not like it's a divorce.
      Joey: Well, actually it...
      Ross: No, it's not a divorce. It is not a divorce!

    • Phoebe: (About Monica and Chandler) They're going to name their first child Joey? Well, how do I get them to name one after me?
      Joey: Oh, it's easy, you just walk in on them having sex.
      Phoebe: Wow, so they owe me like three Phoebes.

    • Monica: Where are all my ovulation sticks? There's only two left.
      Chandler: I may have checked to see if I was ovulating a couple of times.
      Monica: Chandler!
      Chandler: I'm not working, there isn't much to do around here.

    • Phoebe: (About Rachel's blind date) He's a guy I used to massage, and by massage, I mean hold down so he wouldn't roll over and flash me.

    • Monica: (About the pacifier in Chandler's mouth) What are you doing?
      Chandler: Emma was doing it!

    • Phoebe: You know what? Maybe once they start dating, and they see what's out there, they'll realize how good they are for each other.
      Joey: Yeah, because it is slim pickings. I had this date last night, yuck. But we should probably keep it down, she's still in the bedroom.

    • Ross: I think Rachel and I need to get on with our lives. Maybe start seeing other people.
      Joey: Wow. Really?
      Ross: Yeah, sure, why not. In fact, if you know anyone that would be good for me...
      Joey: Sure, I know lots of girls.
      Ross: Yeah? Any names come to mind?
      Joey: Ooh, names?

    • Monica: Canoodeling?
      Chandler: Well I can't say hump or screw in front of the B-A-B-Y.

    • Rachel: Hey, you remembered to put on clothes this morning!
      Joey: Fifth day's the charm.

    • Monica: (To Chandler) You better hope I'm pregnant, because one way or another, we're giving a baby back to Rachel!

    • Rachel: What do you do now?
      Steve: I sell screen t-shirts now.
      Rachel: Really? Whats that like?
      Steve: It's really fulfilling doing something you hate for no money... That's right, I have no money, I'm not funny, I live in a studio apartment with two other guys, and I'm pretty sure I'm infertile.

    • Chandler: (To Emma, about his "going downstairs trick") No, no, no, no! No, no, no, no! It's okay, it's okay. I didn't go. Don't cry, it's just a bit! I'm your uncle Chandler. Funny is all I have!

    • Monica: (To Joey) Why the hell did you take her?
      Joey: Because you two were having sex.
      Monica: No we weren't.
      Joey: Don't you lie to me. I can tell by Chandler's hair. You are so lazy, can't you get on top for once?

    • Joey: (About Monica and Chandler) They can't be having S-E-X when you're taking care of a B-A-B-I-E!

  • NOTES (3)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Phoebe: Then we'll head off to sunny Mexico. Oh wait, that was the end of another plan.

      Probably referring to the movie Bandits where their plan was to rob banks until they had enough money to disappear in Mexico and open a nightclub.
