Aired Thursday 8:00 PM Feb 20, 2003 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Trivia: Phoebe wants her children to be named Mike Junior and Sophie.

    • Continuity: Joey writes two checks to Monica and Chandler for $2,000 each, yet in "The One with Ross's Inappropriate Song" he says that he keeps his money taped to the back of his toilet. Of course, it's possible he's thought better of it since then.

    • Continuity: In "The One Where Rachel Tells...", Ross says he'll be there for Rachel, including baby-proofing. However, he is clearly not involved in the baby-proofing in this episode.
      Note: In all fairness, Ross was talking about baby-proofing his own apartment where he assumed he and Rachel would be living--not Joey's. At the time, he was expecting to marry her--given that she was pregnant with his baby.

    • Continuity: Phoebe claims that she's never lived with a man before, but in 'The One With The Ball' she moved in with Gary the cop.

    • Goof: When Monica is talking to Chandler about asking her parents for money, her arm changes positions when the camera angle changes.

    • Goof: At the beginning of the episode Chandler said to Monica that you can get only beer and baking soda in Joey's fridge, however, at the end of the episode when Joey finally gets it open, we can see a lot of food.

    • Goof: When Monica and Rachel are sitting on the table and Chandler comes in to kiss his wife, the boom mike is visible.

  • Quotes

    • Rachel: (shouting to Joey) She's crawling! Emma's crawling!
      Joey: (startled while shaving) He's bleeding! Joey's bleeding!

    • Joey: (to Chandler, who has shaving foam on his face, too) Shaving?
      Chandler: (deadpan) No... rabies.

    • Chandler: Maybe I should quit and get a job that pays.
      Monica: Oh, but you're finally doing something that you love! I can't ask you to give that up--although, it would be nice if the thing that you loved was, y'know... finding gold.

    • Monica: Wow! I had no idea you had this much pride.
      Chandler: That's right! I do! I'm your man... and I'm going to get us through this situation even if it means you working twice as hard!

    • Monica: (to Joey) I need to borrow some money.
      Joey: I don't know Monica, y'know... lending friends money is always a mistake.
      Monica: But Chandler lent you money!
      Joey: And I think he would tell you it was a mistake.

    • Rachel: Emma started crawling and I realized that this place is very unsafe for a baby, so I went to the store and got some stuff to baby-proof the apartment.
      Joey: Ach, baby-proofing. Why is this such a big deal now? You know, when I was a kid it was like, "Whoops! Joey fell down the stairs!" or "Whoops! Joey electrocuted himself again!"
      Monica: Anyway... um, are you going to get a handyman to install this stuff?
      Rachel: No. I was just going to do this myself.
      Joey: (laughs mockingly) You're gonna do it?
      Rachel: (accusingly) Yeah, why? You don't think a woman can do this?
      Joey: Oh, women can... you can't!
      Rachel: Monica, would you please tell Joey that he is a pig?
      Monica: (to Joey) You're a pig. (turning to Rachel) ...and you can't do this.
      Rachel: What? C'mon! I found the hardware store all by myself!
      Joey: The hardware store is right down the street.
      Rachel: There is a hardware store right down the street?

    • Chandler: (to Joey about borrowing money from him) You can't tell Monica anything about it.
      Joey: I thought you didn't have any secrets from Monica.
      Chandler: And that will remain the official party line.

    • Mike: Phoebe, I love you. Very much. But I never want to get married again.
      Phoebe: Oh. Wow.
      Mike: It's just my first marriage was, you know, such a disaster. I kind of lost faith in the whole idea.
      Phoebe: Was it really that bad?
      Mike: At one point near the end she deliberately defecated--
      Phoebe: Okay, well, that's bad. But don't you think it might be different with someone else? Perhaps a blonde who always uses a toilet... except for once in the ocean.

    • Monica: (to Chandler) You're being weird. Do you want sex, or did you do something bad?

    • (Ross is trying to make Phoebe feel better about Mike not wanting to get married)
      : Marriage stinks! I mean if you wanna see a man gain weight and a woman stop shaving? ...get 'em married!
      Phoebe: That's not how you really feel, is it?
      Ross: No, I'm sorry. Look, I know it's not what you wanna hear right now, but I can't help it. I, I love marriage.
      Phoebe: Seriously? You, "Divorce-o?"
      Ross: If you have to call me a name, I prefer "Ross... The Divorcer!"... it's just cooler. Look... I know my marriages didn't exactly work out, but... y'know, I loved being that committed to another person. And Carol and I had some good times before she became a lesbian... and... once afterward.

    • Rachel: Joey, why did you tell Chandler that Monica was getting a boob job?
      Joey: Because she is.
      Monica: Joey, Chandler knows I borrowed the money.
      Joey: For your boob job!
      Rachel, Monica, & Chandler: It's over, Joe!
      Joey: Okay, so I'm out four thousand dollars and nobody's boobs are gettin' any bigger?

    • Chandler: (while continuing to hold a very heavy couch) And... hernia.

    • (While moving Mike's furniture into Phoebe's, she and Mike have broken up)
      : I'm so sorry, Pheebs.
      Monica: We're all sorry.
      (Group hug)
      Chandler: Ah, look on the bright side. I mean, you won't have to live with this ugly chair!
      (There's an awkward silence)
      Chandler: That was here already, huh?

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Chandler: (to Monica) I'm not sure what they did, but I'm inclined to blame Enron.
      Enron was an energy trading company based in Houston, Texas which went bankrupt in 2001. Enron has become a symbol of institutionalized and well-planned corporate fraud.
