Season 5 Episode 6

The One with the Yeti

Aired Thursday 8:00 PM Nov 05, 1998 on NBC



  • Trivia

    • Continuity: When Gunther refuses to allow Ross to put up a flyer in Central Perk, Ross says, "How come? Everybody else does". Sure enough, there are hand-drawn flyers all over the post behind the couch. In no other episode do we see flyers on the post.

    • Goof: When Ross is talking to Emily on the phone, it can be seen that Emily wears a diamond ring. Ross stops his conversation with Emily to talk with Joey. However, when he gets back to Emily, on the second shot of hers, there is no diamond ring on her finger. The next shot, she has the ring again.

    • Goof: Danny leaves his mail slot open.

    • Goof: When Chandler and Monica are kissing on the chair, Chandler's hand is by his side. When the camera angle changes, his hand is on Monica's leg.

    • Goof: When Ross is moving out of his apartment, the phone on the charger keeps disappearing and reappearing.

    • Goof: When the girls are discussing cremating the coat, Rachel is standing in front of a mirror. In the reflection of the laptop, the computer is turned on. When you see the actual laptop behind Phoebe, it is turned off.

    • Goof: When Rachel and Monica are apologizing to Danny, the whole wall shakes when he closes his door the second time.

    • Magna Doodle: WHY

  • Quotes

    • Phoebe: Why would my mother send me a fur? Doesn't she know me but at all?! Plus, I have a perfectly fine coat that no innocent animal suffered to make!
      Chandler: Yeah, just some 9 year old Filipino kids who worked their fingers bloody for 12 cents an hour.
      (Phoebe stares at him wide-eyed)
      Chandler: That didn't happen, I made that up!

    • Phoebe: Oh, I hate this. Everything's changing.
      Chandler: I know, we're losing Ross. Joey said 'hence.'

    • Monica (about Phoebe's fur coat): Don't get too attached, she's having it cremated.
      Rachel: Phoebe, honey, I know you're quirky and I get a big kick out of it, in fact we all do, actually. But if you destroy a coat like this, that is like a crime against nature. No, not nature, fashion.

    • Monica: (looking for her waffle iron) Here it is... right underneath a can of bug bomb. I wonder if the best place to put something that cooks food is underneath a can of poison.

    • Monica: Look, I'm not happy about this either, but if Ross says he's happy then we're just going to have to keep our feelings about Emily to ourselves. Are you cool with that?
      Joey: No, but I'm an actor, I'll act cool. Probably be some of the hardest acting I've ever done. Maybe I'll play it with a mustache.

    • Joey: (about catching Monica and Chandler kissing) Hey, hey, hey! None of that. Not while you're living under my roof!

    • Chandler: Aren't you supposed to be at an audition for another hour?
      Joey: Well, I'm sorry if I'm not a middle-aged black woman!

    • Joey: (about Chandler & Monica kissing in the living room, while he's in his bedroom) I can hear that!
      Monica: (to Chandler) Rachel's at work.
      (Monica and Chandler quickly leave.)
      Joey: I can still hear you!

    • Joey: Hey, ya know Ross, I, uh, think I kinda understand why I... kinda lost it today.
      Ross: You do, huh?
      Joey: Yeah, you see, um... Well, I'm an actor, right? So I gotta keep my emotions right at the surface, ya know. I got a lot o' balls in the air, ya know? It's tough! Guys like me, ya know, you wander around, you're alone...
      Ross: What are you talking about?
      Joey: (giving it some thought) I'm not sure.

    • Ross: Pheebs are you wearing fur?
      Phoebe: Okay, let's get some perspective, people. It's not like I'm wearing a seeing-eye dog coat!

    • Monica: So basically, this is a getting-rid-of-everything-Rachel-ever-used sale.
      Ross: Touched, used, sat on, slept on...
      Gunther: (overhearing) I'll take it all.

    • Ross: I've been given the gift of time!
      Chandler: You know, that's funny, because last Christmas I was given the gift of space. We should put them together and make a continuum.
