    • Joey: Know what was great? The way his smile was kinda crooked.
      Phoebe: Yes! Like that man in the shoe!
      Ross: What shoe?
      Phoebe: From the nursery rhyme. There was a crooked man, who had a crooked smile, who lived in a shoe... for a while.

      Phoebe is mixing two common nursery rhymes.

      "There was a Crooked Man"
      There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,
      He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
      He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
      And they all lived together in a little crooked house

      "There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe"
      There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
      She had so many children, she didn't know what to do.
      She gave them some broth without any bread,
      Then whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.
