Quote from Joey

Monica: It's got to be one-of-a-kind. You know, like that God-awful ceramic fruit bowl she has on her counter?
Joey: Hey! I made that for her.
Chandler: You made pottery?
Joey: Yeah. I made it out of this fruit bowl I found in the garbage.

Quote from Chandler

Rachel: I'll tell her that it's an antique apothecary table. She doesn't have to know where it came from. Oh, I love these little drawers. Oh, look, look. It says that it holds 300 CDs.
Chandler: Ah, just like the apothecary tables of yore.

Quote from Joey

Janine: How are we going to get out of that one?
Joey: What?
Janine: I can't handle two nights in a row with them.
Joey: What's wrong with Monica and Chandler?
Janine: I don't know. They're just a little ... blah!
Joey: Blah?
Janine: Well, you know, he's blah. She's just... She's very loud for such a small person.

Quote from Phoebe

Phoebe: How much was it?
Rachel: Just only 500 bucks.
Phoebe: 500 bucks at a flea market?
Rachel: Oh, okay, see. I thought you meant how much was it when it was new, like, back then.
Phoebe: Oh, no.
Rachel: I mean, it was at a flea market, so it was like a dollar.
Phoebe: A dollar?
Rachel: And fifty? So, you know, it was like one and fifty dollars.
Phoebe: Oh, okay. So they gave you the old-time pricing.

Quote from Ross

Ross: I still can't believe she hates Pottery Barn.
Rachel: Ross, get over it. It's not like she hates you.
Ross: Yeah, but Pottery Barn? You know what I think? She's just weird, you know. It's because she's a twin. Twins are weird.
Rachel: Ross, she's not weird. She just likes her stuff to be one-of-a-kind.
Ross: Huh. You know what's not one-of-a-kind? A twin!

Quote from Monica

Monica: I do not like that woman.
Joey: I can hear you!
Monica: I am loud.

Quote from Ross

Rachel: So, I can't decide if it goes better by the new chair, the Sahara desk, or the Parker console table.
Ross: Wow. I didn't know there was a Pottery Barn up here.
Rachel: I know, I went a little crazy.
Ross: A little? Your place looks like page 72 of the catalog.

Quote from Phoebe

Rachel: Pheebs, I don't know what to say. I guess the flea market was just better last time.
Phoebe: Well, at least I got these sheets for Ross.

Quote from Phoebe

Phoebe: No, but I am mad. Because this stuff is everything that's wrong with the world, and it's all sitting up in my living room, and all I can think about is how I don't have that lamp!

Quote from Phoebe

Phoebe: Unless. Are you saying you'd move out if I didn't buy that lamp?
Rachel: No, I'm not gonna move out.
Phoebe: But are you saying that you would move out if I didn't buy that lamp?
Rachel: Oh, yes. I would so move out.
Phoebe: Okay. Then I don't have a choice. I have to buy that lamp.
Rachel: That's right.
Phoebe: But at least the apothecary table's real.
