  • Quotes

    • All: (about Chandler smoking) Hey, come on, put it out.
      Rachel: It's worse than the thumb.
      Chandler: Hey, this is so unfair.
      Monica: Why is it unfair?
      Chandler: So I have a flaw! Big deal! Like Joey's constant knuckle cracking isn't annoying? And Ross with his over pronouncing every single word, and Monica with that snort when she laughs... I mean what the hell is that thing? I accept all those flaws... why can't you accept me for this?
      (The gang considers what he's said)
      Joey: Does the knuckle cracking bother everybody or just him?
      Rachel: Well, I could live without it.
      Joey: Is it like, a little annoying or is it like when Phoebe chews her hair? (Phoebe takes her hair out of her mouth.)
      Ross: Don't listen to them Pheebs, I think it's endearing.
      Joey: (over-enunciating) Oh you do, do you? (Monica snorts loudly.)
      Ross: There's nothing wrong with speaking correctly.
      Rachel: (also over-enunciating) Indeed there isn't.
      (Ross glares at Rachel)
      Rachel: I should really be getting back to work.
      Phoebe: Yeah, otherwise someone might get what they actually ordered.
      Rachel: Oh, the hair comes out and the gloves come off...
      (They all start squabbling with each other and Chandler saunters away smoking happily)
