  • Quotes

    • Zack: I beat out 10 other guys for this part. I am the only one who could fit through the neck hole.

    • (When Joey suggested to do romantic stuff afterwards)
      Alex: So then we would do it backwards.
      Joey: No Alex. We won't have sex at all, this time.
      Alex: Backwards time wise.

    • Gina: It's my first chance to work at a respectable place, with a desk and chair and a bathroom with lock on it, has toilets with seats.
      Joey: Where did you work?

    • Alex: I see the girls who sneak out here in the morning and they are really yucky.
      Joey: That's just Wednesday mornings. Tuesday nights are tough.

    • Joey: How does talking about Michael leads to working for Bobby?
      Gina: How does, you talking about Sarah leads you having sex with Alex?

    • Alex: I love champagne.
      Joey: Technically, in order for it to be called champagne, it has to come from the champagne region of France. This is ... beer.

    • Joey: (about why he and Alex had sex) She was vulnerable, I was upset about Sarah, and, I don't know about her, but I was trying to work off a big meal!

    • Joey: (reading a script) "We need to get rid of the body." No, I've got to make it my own. "We need to take this body and go get it gotten rid of." Yeah, that's how people talk!

    • Joey: Alex, we had sex. I'm sorry, deal with it. Okay? Michael, you're never gonna have sex. You're sorry, deal with it. Okay?

    • Bobbie: (to Gina) This is your desk, and this is your phone, (slaps Gina's butt) and this is your sexual harassment seminar.

    • Michael: Hey Joey, who did you have up here last night? It sounded like a bobcat attacking a seal. (to Alex) Hey Alex, what are you doing here?
      Alex: I'm the seal!
