Phoebe: No, I worked at a Dairy Queen. Why?

Quote from Rachel

Quote from Chandler

Joey: There's the birthday boy. Hockey tickets. Rangers-Penguins tonight and we're taking you. -Happy birthday, pal!
Chandler: We love you, man.
Ross: It's funny. My birthday was seven months ago.
Joey: So?
Ross: So, I'm guessing you had an extra ticket and couldn't decide which one of you got to bring a date?
Chandler: Well, aren't we Mr. The-Glass-ls-Half-Empty?

Quote from Ross

Joey: Come on, Ross.
Ross: All right, all right. Maybe it will take my mind off it. You promise to buy me a big foam finger?
Joey: You got it.

Rachel: I mean, what? Chandler, look at that.
Chandler: This is not that bad.
Joey: You're fine, yeah, for a first job.
Ross: You can totally, totally live on this.
Phoebe: Oh, yeah.
Monica: Yeah.
Ross: Oh, by the way, great service today.
[The gang all tip Rachel.]

Quote from Phoebe

Monica: We though since Phoebe was staying over tonight, we'd have kind of like a slumber party thing. We got some trashy magazines. We got cookie dough. We got Twister.
Phoebe: Ooh, ooh, and I brought Operation. But I lost the tweezers so we can't operate. But we can prep the guy.

Quote from Monica

Monica: Oh, Rach, it's the Visa card people.
Rachel: Oh, God. Ask them what they want.
Monica: Could you please tell me what this is in reference to? They say there's been some unusual activity on your account.
Rachel: But I haven't used my card in weeks.
Monica: That is the unusual activity.

Quote from Rachel

Rachel: They wanna know if I'm okay? Okay, let's see. Well, let's see. The FlCA guys took all my money. Everyone I know is either getting married or getting pregnant or getting promoted. And I'm getting coffee. And it's not even for me! So if that sounds like I'm okay, okay, then tell them I'm okay, okay.

Quote from Ross

Ross: Uh-oh.
Chandler: What, there was ice there that night with Carol? Plastic seats? Four thousand angry Pittsburgh fans?
Ross: No, actually, I was just saying we're not sitting together. But now that you mention it, there was ice there that night. It was the first frost.

Quote from Monica

Monica: You should feel great about yourself. You're doing this amazing independent thing.
Rachel: Monica, what is so amazing? I gave up, like, everything. And for what?
Phoebe: You are just like Jack.
Rachel: Jack from downstairs?
Phoebe: No, Jack and the Beanstalk.
Monica: Ah, the other Jack.

Quote from Phoebe

Phoebe: See, he gave up something but then he got those magic beans. And then he woke up and there was this big plant outside of his window, full of possibilities and stuff. And he lived in a village, and you live in the Village.
Rachel: Okay. But, Pheebs, Jack gave up a cow. I gave up an orthodontist. Okay, I know I didn't love him.
Phoebe: Oh, see, Jack did love the cow.

Quote from Phoebe

Rachel: But, see, it was a plan. You know, it was clear. Everything was figured out. And now everything's just kind of like-
Phoebe: Floopy?
Rachel: Yeah.
Monica: You're not the only one. I mean, half the time we don't know where we're going. I mean, you just got to figure at somepoint it's all gonna come together and it's just gonna be un-floopy.
Phoebe: Yeah, like that's a word.

Quote from Rachel

Rachel: Okay, but Monica, what if it doesn't come together?
Monica: Pheebs?
Phoebe: Well, because you just- I don't like this question.
Rachel: Okay, see? See, you guys? What if we don't get magic beans? I mean, what if all we've got are ... beans?
