Quote from Joey in The One with the Rumor

Monica: Anyway, it just doesn't seem worth it to make a whole turkey for just three people. Okay, it's a lot of work.
Joey: But you gotta have turkey on Thanksgiving. I mean, Thanksgiving with no turkey is like Fourth of July with no apple pie. Or Friday with no two pizzas.
Monica: Fine, if it means that much to you. But there's gonna be a ton left over.
Joey: No, there won't. I promise I will finish that turkey.
Monica: All right. You're telling me you can eat almost an entire turkey in one sitting?
Joey: That's right. Because I'm a Tribbiani. This is what we do. I mean, we may not be great thinkers or world leaders. We don't read a lot or run very fast, but damn it, we can eat!

Quote from Joey in The One with the Birth Mother

Phoebe: So Joey and my friend are out last night, they're having dinner, and she reaches over and takes a few of his fries.

Rachel: Oh, yeah, yeah. No, Joey doesn't share food. I mean, just last week we were having breakfast and he had a couple grapes on his plate.
Phoebe: You wouldn't let her have a grape?
Rachel: No, not me. Emma.
Joey: Joey doesn't share food!

Joey: Is that a sandwich?!

Quote from Joey in The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate

Joey: What are you talking about? One woman. That's like saying there's only one flavor of ice cream. Let me tell you something. There's lots of flavors out there. There's rocky road and cookie dough and, bing, cherry vanilla. You can get 'em with jimmies or nuts or whipped cream. This is the best thing to happen to you! You got married. You were like, what, 8? Welcome back to the world. Grab a spoon!

Quote from Joey in The One with the Rumor

Joey: Well, that's it. I'm done. Whew. Here come the meat sweats.

Rachel: You can keep those pants, by the way.
Joey: Ooh, what you got there? What is that, pie?
Monica: Yeah. You want some?
Joey: Yeah, just cut me a little sliver. Little bigger. Little bigger. What are you afraid you're going to run out? Cut me a real piece!

Waiter: It's been an hour. The maitre 'd has asked if you'd be willing to reconsider switching to a smaller table.

Waiter: You can't order until the entire party has arrived. Restaurant policy.
Joey: Well, how about this? Another table leaves, right, but there's still some food left on their plates. Okay, what's the restaurant's policy about people eating that?
Waiter: It's frowned upon.
Joey: But it happens?

Quote from Joey in The One with the Birth Mother

Phoebe: That's why you won't go out with her again? So she took some fries. Big deal.

Phoebe: What?
Joey: All food!
Phoebe: Well, I'm sorry. I can't believe I set you up with such a monster.
Joey: Hey, look, I take a girl out she can order whatever she wants. The more the better, all right? Just don't order a garden salad and then eat my food! That's a good way to lose some fingers.

Joey: Just put it on a plate and leave.
