  • Trivia

    • Goof: In the tag ending, when the girls are returning from showing the firemen out, the post and a chair that are supposed to represent the "fourth wall" of the set are visible. However, in the background the door wall, which includes a framed picture, goes well beyond this perimeter, and of course, there's no wall behind the post and chair.

    • Goof: When the firemen are going through the trash bin, Monica is already holding the burnt picture of her ex boyfriend, before the fireman can even take it out.

    • Trivia: This is the first time Janice says her catchphrase "Oh, my God!"

    • Trivia: Phoebe mentions her friend Abby who shaves her head. In a later series she has a friend named Bonnie who shaves her head, who she sets up with Ross.

  • Quotes

    • Kristin: (About Carol and Susan) Who are they?
      Ross: The blond woman is my ex-wife, and the woman touching her is her... close, personal friend.
      Kristin: You mean they're lovers.
      Ross: If you wanna put a label on it.

    • Carol: Uh, I don't think she's in the bathroom. Her coat is gone.
      Ross: Well maybe it's cold in there. Or maybe I screwed up the first date I had in nine years.

    • Monica: Look, here's a picture of Scotty Jared naked.
      Rachel: Hey he's wearing a sweater.
      Monica: No.

    • Phoebe: Okay, so now we need, um, sage branches and the sacramental wine.
      Monica: All I have is, is oregano and a Fresca.

    • Chandler: Oh, what a crappy night!
      Janice: Although, I have enjoyed the fact that, uh your shirt's been sticking out of your zipper ever since you came back from the bathroom.

    • Phoebe: Okay. We can, um, we can burn the stuff they gave us.
      Rachel: Or?
      Phoebe: Or... or we can chant and dance around naked, you know, with sticks.
      Monica: Burning's good.

    • Phoebe: Oh! You know my friend Abby who shaves her head? She said that if you want to break the bad boyfriend cycle, you can do like a cleansing ritual.
      Rachel: Pheebs, this woman is voluntarily bald.

    • Joey: No, no, no, don't! I've been waiting for, like, forever to go out with Lorraine. Just calm down.
      Chandler: Calm down? Calm down? You set me up with the woman that I've dumped twice in the last five months!

    • Chandler: (To Joey) Okay, now, remember, no trading. You get the pretty one, I get the mess.

    • Monica: You can not do this.
      Rachel: Do what? Do what?
      Monica: Roger wants to take her out tomorrow night.
      Rachel: No! Phoebes! Don't you remember why you dumped the guy?
      Phoebe: 'Cause he was creepy, and mean, and a little frightening... Alright, still, it's nice to have a date on Valentine's Day!

    • Chandler: How can I dump this woman on Valentine's Day?
      Joey: I don't know. You dumped her on New Year's.
      Chandler: Oh man, in my next life I'm coming back as a toilet brush.

    • Janice: So do we have the best friends, or what?
      Chandler: Joey's not a friend, he's ... a stupid man who left us his credit card. Another drink? Some dessert? A big-screen TV?

    • Rachel: How do we end up with these jerks? We're good people.
      Monica: I don't know. I think we're some kind of magnets.
      Phoebe: I know I am. That's why I can't wear a digital watch.

    • Monica: Phoebe, you can go out with a creepy guy any night of the year. I know I do.

    • Joey: She said she wants to slather my body with stuff and then lick it off. I'm not even sure what slathering is, but I definitely want to be a part of it.

    • Phoebe: (While doing the ritual) Ok. All right. Now we need the semen of a righteous man.
      Rachel: Ok, Pheebs, you know what, if we had that, we wouldn't be doing the ritual in the first place.

    • Chandler: Come on, Ross, you gotta get back in the game here, okay? The Rachel thing's not happening, your ex-wife is a lesbian. I don't think we need a third.

    • Carol: (To Ross) All you need is a woman who likes men and you're set.
      (Ross looks at a beautiful woman passing by) Not her.

    • Janice: (To Chandler) I bought you something.
      Chandler: Is it loaded?

    • Joey: C'mon, man, she's needy. She's vulnerable. I'm thinking, cha-ching!
