Quote from Chandler

Joey: This is a little extra something for always being there for me.
Chandler: Wow, I don't know what to say. [after opening the box] Wow, I don't know what to say.
Joey: What do you say?
Chandler: I don't know. It's a bracelet.
Joey: Isn't it? And it's engraved, too. Check it out.
Chandler: "To my best bud."
Joey: Thanks, best bud. Put it on.
Chandler: Now? [putting it away in a drawer] No, I think something this nice should be saved for a special occasion.
Joey: No, that's the beauty part. It goes with everything. When you put this on, you're good to go. Oh, man. You are so wearing that bracelet.
Chandler: I so am.
Joey: Do you have any idea what this will do for your sex life?
Chandler: Well, it will probably slow it down at first, but once I get used to the extra weight, I'll be back on track.

Quote from Chandler

Phoebe: Hey, Mon, what is this?
Monica: Oh, that was my bathing suit from high school. I was a little bigger then.
Chandler: Oh, I thought that's what they used that to cover Connecticut when it rains.

Quote from Chandler

Joey: How come you have two?
Chandler: Well, this one's for you.
Joey: Get out.
Chandler: No, I can't. Listen, I know how much this means to you and I also know this is about more than just jewelry. It's about you and me and the fact that we're "best buds."
Joey: Is this friendship? I think so. Check it out. We're bracelet buddies!
Chandler: That's what they'll call us.

Quote from Chandler

[on the video tape:]
Judy Geller: Oh, I see Rachel's coming up the path. Doesn't she look pretty? Jack? Can you get this?
[back in the apartment:]
Rachel: Oh, my God.
Joey: What is with your nose?
Rachel: They had to reduce it because of my deviated septum.
Chandler: Okay, I was wrong. That's what they use to cover Connecticut.

Quote from Phoebe

Phoebe: Oh, hang in there. It's gonna happen.
Ross: Now, how do you know that?
Phoebe: Because she's your lobster.
Chandler: Oh, she's going somewhere.
Phoebe: Come on, you guys. It's a known fact that lobsters fall in love and mate for life. You know what? You can actually see old lobster couples walking around their tank, holding claws, like...

Quote from Jack Geller

Monica: Wow, that is a surprise. Just one little question. Why not Ross's room?
Jack Geller: Gosh. We talked about that but your brother had so many science trophies, and plaques, and merit badges. Well, we didn't want to disturb them.
Monica: God forbid.

Quote from Phoebe

Monica: I can't believe you did that.
Ross: Yeah, well. [Rachel goes over and kisses Ross]
Phoebe: See? He's her lobster!

Quote from Chandler

Joey: Hey, I got you something for you.
Chandler: What's this?
Joey: Eight hundred and twelve bucks.
Chandler: Oh, I don't know what Big Leon told you, but it's an even thousand if you want me for the whole night. What is this for?
Joey: Well, I'm making money now. And this is paying you back for head shots, electric bills, and so many slices of pizza that I can't even count. I love you, man.
Chandler: Well, thanks, man. Now I can get my pony.

Quote from Monica

Restaurant Manager: So if I want to call for a reference on your last job?
Monica: That's right there on the bottom, see? The manager, Chandler Bing.

Quote from Chandler

Ross: Hey, who's this Casey?
Phoebe: Oh, some guy she met at the movies.
Ross: Oh, really. What does he want with her?
Chandler: I guess he wants to do a little dance you know, make a little love. Well, pretty much get down tonight.

Quote from Ross

Ross: I don't get it. You know, two months ago, Rachel and I were this close. Now I'm taking messages from guys she meets at the movies? I mean, this Casey should be taking down my messages, you know? Or, or Rachel and I should be together and we should get some kind of message service.

Quote from Monica

Chandler: Hey, you feeling better?
Monica: Yeah, I think that fifth shower actually got the interview off me.
Phoebe: So, do you have other possibilities?
Monica: Oh, yeah. Well, there is the possibility that I won't make rent.

Quote from Ross

Ross: Monica, if you want, I could lend you some money.
Monica: Oh, no, no. If I couldn't pay you back right away, then I'd feel guilty and tense every time I saw you.
Ross: Oh, okay. Then why don't you borrow it from Mom and Dad? You feel guilty and tense around them already. You might as well make some money off of them.

Quote from Monica

Jack Geller: Hi.
Judy Geller: Hi, darling.
Monica: What's this?
Jack Geller: Some of your old stuff.
Judy Geller: Well, sweetie, we have a surprise for you. We're turning your room into a gym.
Monica: Wow, that is a surprise.

Quote from Jack Geller

Judy Geller: We were so sorry to hear about your parents splitting up.
Rachel: Oh. Well, they're just separated. So you never know. We'll see.
Jack Geller: Well, I can't say any of us were surprised. Your parents have been unhappy ever since we've known them. Especially after that incident in Hawaii.
Rachel: What? What incident?
Jack Geller: Um, no, no. I must be thinking of someone else. Maybe me. Don't you have some folding to do? Go fold, dear. Fold. You fold.

Quote from Chandler

Chandler: Oh, this is excellent. He could have gotten me a VCR or a set of golf clubs. But no, he has to get me the "woman repeller". The eyesore from the Liberace House of Crap!
Phoebe: It's not that bad.
Chandler: Oh, yeah, easy for you to say. You don't have to walk around sporting a reject from the Mr. T collection!
Phoebe: Chandler. Chandler-
Chandler: "l pity the fool that puts on my jewelry. I do. I do. l pity that fool that-" Hey, man. We were just doing some impressions over here. Do your Marcel Marceau. [Joey is silent] That's actually good.

Quote from Ross

Rachel: Okay, Ross, listen to me. I am not yours to save.
Ross: But you are.
Rachel: What?
Ross: Oh, well, you're my lobster.
Rachel: Okay. What, are you being, like, the blind-date guy again?
Ross: No, no. No, you're my lobster. See, lobsters. In the tank, when they're old they get with the- They walk around holding the claws. In the tank. You know, with with the holding and-Pheebs, you wanna help me with the whole lobster thing?
Phoebe: Do the claws again.

Quote from Chandler

Chandler: I am here, on my knees holding up these couch cushions as a symbol of my sorrow and regret. Much like they did in biblical times. Though you may haveth anger now-

Quote from Phoebe

Chandler: I can't believe it.
Phoebe: Would you stop already? Get out of the bitter barn and play in the hay.
Chandler: Oh, you're right. I should play in the hay. Forget the fact that I just dropped $400 to replace a bracelet I hated to begin with. Bring on the hay.
Rachel: Hey. I've got something that'll make you happy. Guess what Gunther found?
Phoebe: Oh. Hey, now you have two. Oh, now you have two.

Quote from Monica

Monica: So listen, I'm sorry I didn't tell you this before, but I'm no longer at my job. I had to leave it.
Judy Geller: Why?
Monica: Because they made me.
Judy Geller: You were fired? What are you gonna do?
Jack Geller: Judy, relax. This is our little Harmonica we're talking about. We taught her well. Ten percent of your paycheck, where does it go?
Ross: ln the bank.
Monica: In the bank.
Jack Geller: There you go. So she dips into her savings. That's what it's there for. She's gonna be fine. And if you need a little extra you know where to find it. [pulls a penny from behind Monica's ear]
Monica: Anything larger back there?
