Season 4, Episode 15 -  Aired February 26, 1998

Ross tries to show Emily he can be a tough guy by playing rugby. Meanwhile, Monica obsesses over a switch in the apartment that doesn't appear to do anything, while Chandler tries desperately to extricate himself from a relationship with Janice.

Quote from Chandler

Chandler: Janice. There you are. I had to have one last kiss. And also, you said you were going to leave after I got on the plane.
Janice: No. I want to see you take off.
Chandler: Well, then I guess I'm going to Yemen. I'm going to Yemen. [to an elderly woman in line] When we get to Yemen, can I stay with you?


Quote from Chandler

Airport Announcement: This is the final boarding call for flight 664 to Yemen.
Chandler: Well, I guess I gotta go.
Janice: Oh, my Bing-a-ling. I'll wait for you. Do you even know how long you're going to be gone?
Chandler: Well, just until we find an energy source to replace fuel.
Janice: Oh. Well, I'll write you every day. 15, Yemen Road, Yemen.
Chandler: Okay. Goodbye.

Quote from Phoebe

Monica: So, everybody ready? Here we go. I hear something. I hear something. Where is it?
Rachel: It's coming from Joey.
Phoebe: Oh, my God! That's so freaky. Turn him off.

Quote from Chandler

Janice: Face it, honey, I am not letting you get away this time.
Chandler: I hear you. But unfortunately, my company is transferring me overseas.
Janice: Oh, no. Where to? To Paris?
Chandler: No, not Paris.
Janice: Ooh, to London? Rome? Vienna? Ooh, ooh, Barcelona?
Chandler: Okay, could you just stop talking for a second? Yemen. [Janice gasps] That's right. Yes. I'm being transferred to Yemen.
Janice: When?
Chandler: I don't know exactly.
Janice: Well, I will just have to soak up every ounce of Chandler Bing until that moment comes.
Chandler: But I do know it's sometime tomorrow.

Quote from Janice

Rachel: What am I sitting on? I'd hate to think what was this woman scratching when this broke off?
Chandler: Hey, you know who used to have nails like that?
Janice: Oh, my God!

Quote from Joey

Chandler: I'm only pretend-moving to Yemen. It's the only way I could get rid of her.
Joey: Oh. Good one. And Yemen, that actually sounds like a real country.

Quote from Phoebe

Phoebe: Why are you doing this, anyway?
Ross: You should've seen the guy she used to date. He was like "Joe Rugby".
Phoebe: You're kidding. And he plays rugby? That's funny. Oh, I see. You did that. All right.

Quote from Chandler

Chandler: Hi, I need a fake ticket to Yemen.
Ticket Counter Attendant: One ticket to Yemen?
Chandler: Oh, no. No, no, no. I just need a pretend ticket.
Ticket Counter Attendant: I'm sorry, sir. I don't understand.
Chandler: Okay, what would you give a kid to play with?
Ticket Counter Attendant: Are you traveling with a child?
Chandler: No. Oh. You know what, she's going to think I'm handing you a credit card. But what I'm really going to do is hand you a library card.
Ticket Counter Attendant: Sir, a ticket to Yemen is $2100, and we don't take library cards.
Janice: What's the matter? Is something wrong? Do you have to stay?
Chandler: American Express?

Quote from Rachel

Ross: I'll just look energetic and stay away from the ball. I'll be that guy, right outside the circle.
All: Oh!
Rachel: Well, maybe there was a dog looking at him.

Quote from Chandler

Chandler: You know, you really didn't have to take me to the airport.
Janice: Oh, please. Every moment is precious. Besides, someone had to ride with your luggage.
And besides, your friends don't seem to care very much that you're leaving.
Chandler: Well, we're not really that close.
