    In this episode Ross needs to learn how to talk dirty to his new lady in order to get some action. He goes to Joey for advice, but as soon as he starts to get into it, Chandler overhears... how embarrassing. He finally masters his dirty talk! But she still only wants to cuddle. Meanwhile, Monica has an interview for a chef's position. After cooking all day, the restaurant owner shows up completely stoned. Jon Lovitz gives an excellent performance as Steve, the Stoned Guy. Unfortunately after Steve eats a kitchen magnet, the girls leave him in the emergency room and Monica does not get the job. Absolutely hilarious!moreless

And Ross has a date with a beautiful colleague named Celia and gives new meaning to the term "spanking the monkey," when he brings her back to his place to meet Marcel. Celia is willing to have sex with him, but only if he'll talk dirty to her which he can't do so he asks Joey for help. I love this episode, I love everyepisde of Friends to be honest - I mean who doesn't?! Chandles quits his job, but it's so funny the way he acts about it - legend! Friends is too funny/ I love Jon Lovitz in this episode really good in it. Monica Ross tries to talk dirty - and oh my god it's too funny when Chandler walks in on Ross and Joey talking dirty to each other, one of the funniest things that has ever happen on Friends.moreless

  • Dirty Talk.

    8.0
    This episode was just okay, basically the title gives away the plot. Sort of Monica's little filler. She never even gets the job. So nothing really happened, but very funny quotes. I like how Rachel wanted to be the waitress. And I also like how Phoebe offers the job to Chandler, when it was the dream job for Monica. Looks like Chandler is destined to what he already has been working for. Which opens up many story lines for the following episodes now that HE is promoted. That one definitely wasn't a filler. Ross talks dirty to his girlfriend then cuddles. I like how he dirty talked with Joey as well. Awkward for Chandler. Okay episode.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Continuity: When the gang is watching television Ross states, "And that is why evolution is just a theory." However in "The One Where Heckles Dies" Ross fights passionately with Phoebe saying that "Evolution is scientific fact, like, like, like the air we breathe, like gravity."

    • Goof: When Phoebe asks Chandler if he wants to be a chef, Monica says "Hi, there" with her right hand raised. When the camera angle changes, her hand is suddenly on her lap.

    • Goof: Ross says that the woman he is dating is the curator of insects at the museum. Wouldn't the curator of insects and the curator of moths and other wing-ed things (which is a different woman that he dates) from "The One with Russ" be the same thing, since moths are insects?

    • Continuity: In this episode Chandler says that the WENUS stands for Weekly Estimated Net Usage Systems. When the WENUS is referred to later in the series, it stands for Weekly Estimated Net Usage Statistics.

    • Trivia: Steve from this episode makes another appearance in a later episode of the show. In the season 9 episode, "The One With The Blind Dates", Steve is poor Rachel's blind date.

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Joey: (About Chandler quitting his job) Oh man, does that mean we gotta start buying our own toilet paper?
      Ross: (Pretending to be a reporter) That was Joey Tribbiani with the big picture. Dan?

    • Monica: Wendy bailed. I have no waitress.
      Rachel: Oh... that's too bad. Bye bye. (Starts to leave)
      Monica: Ten dollars an hour.
      Rachel: No.
      Monica: Twelve dollars an hour.
      Rachel: Mon. I wish I could, but I've made plans to walk around.

    • Monica: Is it better than the other salmon mousse?
      Joey: It's creamier.
      Monica: Yeah, well, is that better?
      Joey: I don't know. We're talking about whipped fish, Monica. I'm just happy I'm keeping it down, ya know?

    • Monica: (About the appetizers) Hey, maybe this'll cheer you up.
      Chandler: Oh, you know, um, I had a grape about five hours ago, so I'd better split this with you.
      Monica: It's supposed to be that small. It's a pre-appetizer. The French call it an amouz-bouche.
      Chandler: Well, it is amouzing...

    • Chandler: Can you see my nipples through this shirt?
      Rachel: No, but don't worry. I'm sure they're still there.

    • Chandler: I just don't want to be one of those guys who sits in his office until twelve o'clock at night worrying about the WENUS.
      Rachel: The WENUS?
      Chandler: Weekly estimated net usage system. It's a processing term.
      Rachel: Oh, that WENUS.

    • Rachel: Oh! I see. And I've sort of been maintaining my amateur status so that I can waitress in the Olympics.

    • Chandler: Eight and a half hours of aptitude tests, intelligence tests, personality tests... and what do I learn? (He taps the results and reads them) "You are ideally suited for a career in data processing for a large multinational corporation."
      Phoebe: That's so great because you already know how to do that!

    • Steve: (After spilling a bag of Gummy Bears) Oh no! Bears overboard! They're, they're drowning! (Starts throwing Sugar O's cereal to the Gummy Bears) Hey fellas, grab onto a Sugar O, save yourselves!

    • Chandler: (Talking to his former boss on the telephone) Yeah, I miss you too. It's a lot less satisfying to steal pens from your own home, you know?

    • Celia: Say something... hot.
      Ross: (Panicked) Er... um...
      Celia: What?
      Ross: Um... uh... vulva.

    • Ross: (On his plans for his date tonight) Oh, I just thought we could go out to dinner, and then maybe bring her back to my place and I'd introduce her to my monkey.
      Chandler: And he's not speaking metaphorically.

    • Joey: (Teaching Ross to talk dirty) If you can't talk dirty to me, how are you going to talk dirty to her? Now, tell me you want to caress my butt!

    • Ross: Hey guys. Does anybody know a good date place in the neighborhood?
      Joey: How about Tony's? If you can finish a thirty-two-ounce steak, it's free.
      Ross: Okay. Hey, does anyone know a good place if you're not dating a puma?

    • Steve: Oooh! Taco shells! You know what these are? They're like little corn envelopes!

    • Steve: Macaroni and cheese! We gotta make this!

    • Steve: Oooh! Tartlets! Tartlets. Tartlets. The word has lost all meaning.

    • Steve: Well, smack my ass and call me Judy!

  • NOTES (6)

  • ALLUSIONS (5)

    • Monica: Oh, I love my life, I love my life!
      Phoebe: Ooh! Brian's Song!

      Brian's Song is a 1971 made-for-TV movie, recalling the details of the life of Brian Piccolo, a football player stricken with terminal cancer.

    • Phoebe: In the cab on the way over, Steve blazed up a doobie.
      Rachel: What?!
      Phoebe: Smoked a joint, ya know, lit a bone, weed, hemp, ganja.
      Rachel: Okay, okay, okay, okay, okay. I know. Okay, I'm with you Cheech.

      This was a reference to Cheech Marin, an American comedian and actor, who gained recognition in the Cheech and Chong "stoner" movies in the 1980's.

    • Ross: I was the James Michener of dirty talk.

      James Michener was a bestselling American author who was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. His novel Tales of the South Pacific was the inspiration for the Broadway musical and 1958 film South Pacific.

    • Chandler: You have goals. You have dreams. I don't have a dream!
      Ross: Ah, the lesser known, "I Don't Have a Dream" speech.

      This is a reference to Martin Luther King, an African American civil rights activist who is perhaps most famous for his "I Have a Dream" speech, given in front of the Lincoln Memorial during the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

    • Monica: He showed me where the restaurant's going to be. It's this cute little place on 10th Street. Not too big, not too small. Just right.
      Chandler: Was it formerly owned by a blonde woman and some bears?

      This is a reference to the classic children's story, Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
