Office Worker #2
Office Worker #1
Trivia: This is the first of two episodes in which Chandler gets one of the other friends a job where he works. The other one is "The One with the Chicken Pox", where Joey pretends to be a data processor named "Joseph". In both episodes, Chandler ends up regretting getting his friend a job.
Continuity: In this episode we discover that Monica is 26. However in the next episode, "The One with the Birth", Joey states he is 25. This is an obvious mistake, since it is established that Joey is older than Monica.
Trivia: In this episode and many later episodes, the gang make fun of Chandler for emphasizing the wrong words when he talked. (Could that report be any later?) Chandler had only done this once before on Friends, in "The One With The Butt".
Monica: You did not!
Ethan: I am telling you, up until I was like 9, I thought that gunpoint was an actual place where crimes happened.
Monica: How is that possible?
Ethan: Well think about it, you always hear it on the news. "A man is being held up... at gunpoint", "Tourists are being terrorized... at gunpoint". And I just kept thinking, why do people continue to go there?
Ross: (about Ethan) What, you're not seeing him anymore?
Monica: No. Sometimes things just don't work out.
Chandler: And this has nothing to do with the fact he needs a note to get out of gym?
Rachel: I didn't say anything, I swear! He stopped by.
Joey: Hey, the next time you talk to him, can you ask him which one the strongest Power Ranger is? (Everyone laughs)
Monica: Ha, ha, ha, my life is just so amusing. Could we drop it now?
Ross: It's morphing time!
Joey : Stegosaurus!
Chandler: Tyrannosaurus! (The guys cross their arms like the Power Rangers)
Chandler: (about his employees disliking him) I can't believe this.
Phoebe: Yeah, yeah! They even do you.
Chandler: They "do" me?
Phoebe: You know like um, okay, "Could that report... be any later?"
(Joey and Ross start laughing)
Chandler: I don't sound like that.
Ross: Oh come on, Chandler.
Joey: Yeah, you do.
Ross: (imitating Chandler) The hills are alive with the sound... of music!
Joey: (imitating Chandler) My scone!
Phoebe and Ross: (joining in) My scone!
Chandler: Okay, I don't sound like that. That is so... not true. (Ross and Joey start laughing) That is so not... that is so not... oh, shut up!
Phoebe: Can you see me operating a drill press?
Joey: I don't know. What are you wearing?
Ross: Pheebs, why would you want to operate a drill press?
Phoebe: Just for some short-term work. Till I get back some of my massage clients.
Chandler: Pirates again?
Phoebe: No. Nothing like that. I'm just such a dummy. I taught this "Massage Yourself at Home" workshop. And they are.
Chandler: Oh, come on. You told me about the last dream.
Rachel: No, forget it.
Chandler: Oh, why not. Was I doing anything particularly... saucy?
Rachel: All right, fine. Um, you were not the only one there. Joey was there too.
Joey: All right.
Ross: Was there... uh, huh, huh, huh... anybody, anybody else there?
Ross: You're sure? Nobody, uh, handing out, uh, mints or anything?
Joey: Hey, hey. How was the first day?
Phoebe: Oh, excellent. Everyone was so, so nice.
Chandler: See, it pays to know the man who wears my shoes... Me!
Phoebe: No, I didn't tell anybody that I knew you.
Chandler: Why not?
Phoebe: Oh, because, you know... they don't like you.
Phoebe: I thought you knew that.
Chandler: No-ho. Who doesn't like me?
Phoebe: Everyone. Except for uh... no everyone.
Rachel: Hey, did you guys check out those new hand dryers in the bathroom?
Ross: I thought that was just a rumor.
Rachel: True story!
Ross: Are your hands still wet?
Joey: They're moist.
Rachel: Let's dry them again.
Monica: Oh, I can't pass for twenty two?
Phoebe: Well, maybe twenty five, twenty six.
Monica: I am twenty six!
Phoebe: There you go.
(Ross was just beeped, Carol has gone into labor)
Ross: Monica, let's go! Come on now, people! Woman in labor!
Chandler: (doing a little dance) Hey Ross, look what I got going here...
Ross: Yeah, save it for the cab, okay? (to Rachel) What are you doing? What are you doing? We're going to a hospital!
Rachel: (putting on makeup) What? So I can't look nice? There might be doctors there.
Ross: Joey, get out of the fridge!
Joey: All right, all right! (Comes out of his apartment with a huge sandwich)
Ross: What is that?
Joey: For the ride.
Chandler: Oh, yeah, like in a cab...
Ross: Save it!
Chandler: Okay, hating this!
Ross: Monica, come on, now! Let's go! Baby coming!
Monica: (in tears) I can't believe that I'm gonna be an aunt! I'm gonna have, like... a nephew.
Ross: That's nice. Get out!
Ross: (about his new beeper) ...it's for when Carol goes into labor. She can get me wherever I am. I mean, all she has to do is to dial 55-JIMBO.
Chandler: A cool phone number and a possible name for the kid.
Chandler: Well, my secretary is gonna be out for a couple of weeks. She is having one of her boobs reduced. It´s a whole big boob story.
Phoebe: I could be a secretary.
Chandler: Well, you know Pheebs, I don´t know if it´s your kinda thing, because it involves a lot of being normal... for a large portion of the day.
Chandler: Oh, come on tell me. I could use another reason why women won't look at me.
Ethan: Uh, before we get into any staying-over stuff, there is something you should know.
Monica: Okay, is this like, "I have an early class tomorrow," or, "I'm secretly married to a goat?"
Joey: What the hell does a paleontologist need a beeper for?
Monica: Is it, like, for dinosaur emergencies? "Help! Come quick, they're still extinct!"
Ross: I can't believe you two had sex in her dream!
Chandler: I-I'm sorry... it was a one time thing, I was very drunk and it was someone else's subconscious...
International Episode Title:
Czech Republic: Sny o milencích (Dreams about Lovers)
One of the co-workers is actually Brian Buckner, a writer for the show.
This episode runs 23:53 on DVD (a typical sitcom runs about 22:00).
Chandler: I think last night was great. You know, the karaoke thing? Tracy and I doing "Ebony and Ivory."
"Ebony and Ivory" is a number-one single in 1982 by Paul McCartney, performed with Stevie Wonder. Karaoke is a form of entertainment in which amateur singers sing along with recorded music on a microphone.
Ross: This may take some time for him to get over it but, then at four, Muppet Babies is on.
Jim Henson's Muppet Babies is an American animated television series.
Monica: I'm Joan Collins.
Monica: Oh God! I just had sex with someone who wasn't alive during the bicentennial.
Ethan: I just had sex!
The United States Bicentennial was celebrated in 1976 on the 200th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence.
Chandler: I don't sound like that.
Ross: Oh, oh Chandler...
Joey: Yeah, you do.
Ross: "The hills were alive with the sound... of music."
These are title song lyrics from The Sound of Music, a Broadway musical and 1965 Oscar-winning movie.
Joey: Listen next time you talk to him could you ask him which one the strongest power ranger is?
Ross: It's morphin' time.
This is a reference to the long-running, children's TV series Power Rangers. Although Joey and Ross were only joking, stegosaurus is not one of the Ranger's zords.
