  • Quotes

    • Ross: (to Chandler) Have you seen this? It's a new alumni website for college! It's cool! You can post messages for people--let everyone know what you're up to.
      Chandler: Great. A faster way to tell people that I'm unemployed and childless.
      Ross: It's actually kinda interesting to find out what people are doing... Remember Andrea Rich...?
      Chandler: The tall girl who wouldn't sleep with you?
      Ross: Uh huh... Well, her Internet company went under and she lost an ear in a boating accident.
      Chandler: Bet she'd sleep with you now...
      Ross: (after an awkward pause) No... I already emailed her.

    • Chandler: (reading from Ross's alumni webpage) You split with Carol because you have different interests? I think you split with Carol because you had one very similar interest!

    • Rachel: Hey! How was basketball?
      Joey: Oh, it was a lot of fun right up until Chandler got a finger in the eye!
      Rachel: Oh, no! Who did that?
      Joey: Chandler.

    • Ross: (about his Chandler-enhanced webpage) I have sex with dinosaurs?!
      Chandler: (with a degree of pride) I believe I read that somewhere...
      Ross: Not only is it not funny, it's physically impossible, okay? Depending on the species, I'd have to have a six-foot long... It's not funny!!

    • Monica: (reading from the alumni website) Why would Ross tell your entire college class that you are " gay as the day is long"?
      Chandler: Because I told people he likes to have sex with dinosaurs.
      Monica: That's different. That's obviously a lie. This could easily be true!

    • Ross: (to Chandler) I'm dead?!!

    • Ross: Posting that I died? That really isn't funny!
      Chandler: Well... how you died was funny.
      Ross: Oh, please! Hit by a blimp?
      Chandler: (faking tears) It kills over one Americans every year!

    • Phoebe: Damn you, Monica Geller-hyphen-Bing!

    • Rachel: Should I be concerned that a button fell off the old Hugsy and I can't find it?
      Joey: Oh, no, don't worry about that. I swallowed that years ago.

    • Monica(to Phoebe when there's a knock on the door) Who's that?
      Phoebe: I ordered Chinese food.
      (Monica opens the door to find Mike)
      Phoebe: (pretending surprise) What are the chances?! One billion Chinese people and they send Mike!

    • Chandler: (about Ross's "edited" photo of him) So that's what I'd look like if I worked out... and was being serviced by a policeman.

    • Ross: (about the website) You get sixty responses just for comin' outta the closet! I didn't get one response... and, and I'm dead!
      Chandler: Well, the gay community's a lot more vocal than the dead community.

    • Rachel: You're gonna take Hugsy away from a little child?
      Joey: How do you think I got him in the first place?!

    • Ross: (to Monica and Chandler) It's been an hour and not one of my classmates has shown up! I tell you, when I actually die, some people are gonna get seriously haunted!

    • Ross: I'm dead and no one cares?
      Monica: I look like a man?
      Chandler: Please, one ridiculous problem at a time!
      Ross: This isn't ridiculous. Look around! No one's here!
      Chandler: You gave them one day's notice! Not everyone in our class checks the website every day! ...and Monica, it's probably the way you stand.

    • Kori: (at Monica and Chandler's door) Hi, I'm here for Ross Geller's memorial service.
      Chandler: Kori? Kori Weston?
      Kori: Yeah.
      Chandler: Whew! You look amazing!
      Kori: And you are...?
      Chandler: (vigorously shaking her hand) Chandler, Chandler Bing. I'm not gay... I'm not gay at all...
      Monica: You are married, though!
      Chandler: Don't listen to him. He's in a really bad mood.

    • Ross: (on the phone with his mother) Actually, no. Even if I had died, you would not be left childless... (after listening for a moment) Monica!
