Friends: The One That Could Have Been (Part 1)

615. The One That Could Have Been (Part 1)

Aired February 17, 2000

The gang ponders what might have been if Ross and Carol had stayed together, Monica was still heavy, Chandler had become a struggling writer, Joey still worked on Days of our Lives, Rachel had married Barry, and Phoebe had taken a job as a stockbroker.

Quote from Ross

Rachel: Can you imagine if I'd married him? I mean, how different would my life be?
Ross: I know what you mean. I've always wondered how different my life would be if I'd never gotten divorced.
Phoebe: Which time?
Ross: The first time!


Quote from Phoebe

Phoebe: What if I'd taken that job at Merrill Lynch?
Monica: What?
Rachel: Merrill Lynch?
Phoebe: Yeah, I had a massage client who worked there and he said I had a knack for stocks.
Rachel: Well, why didn't you take the job?
Phoebe: Because at that time, you see, I thought everything that rhymed was true. So, I thought if I worked with stocks, I'd have to live in a box and only eat lox and have a pet fox.

Quote from Rachel

Rachel: I just cannot believe this. I mean, Joey Tribbiani.
Monica: It's none of my business, but aren't you married?
Rachel: Yeah. I wish we could just not be married for a little bit. You know, I just wish we could be, like, on a break.

Quote from Joey

Rachel: Hey, you guys, guess what? Barry and Mindy are getting a divorce.
Joey: [to Ross] What is the matter with you?
Phoebe: No. Barry and Mindy.
Joey: Oh, sorry. I hear "divorce," I immediately go to Ross.

Quote from Rachel

Joey: Who's Barry and Mindy?
Rachel: Barry was the guy I almost married, and Mindy was my best friend.
Joey: Oh, wasn't he cheating on you with her?
Rachel: Yeah, but that just means he was falling asleep on her instead of me.

Quote from Chandler

Ross: I bet I'd still be doing my karate. Towards the end of our marriage, I was doing a lot of karate as a way of releasing the tension from, you know, not doing anything else physical.
Chandler: Maybe the problem was pronouncing it ka-ra-tay.

Quote from Chandler

Chandler: What if I had had the guts to quit my job? I'd probably be writing for the New Yorker, being paid to be funny. But my job's fun too. I mean, tomorrow, I don't have to wear a tie.

Quote from Chandler

Roger: By the way, the answer is: The Brazil nut.
Chandler: Was his question, "What's more boring than him?"

Quote from Chandler

Rachel: Oh, my God. Joey Tribbiani from Days of Our Lives just walked in here.
Monica: Rach, he's a friend of ours.
Rachel: You're friends with Drake Ramoray?
Chandler: Well, it's kind of hard to be Drake's friend because of his busy schedule and the fact that he's not real.

Quote from Joey

Joey: Well, it's always nice to meet fans. [to Monica] She's not crazy, is she?
Monica: No.
Joey: So, how you doin'?
