Quote from Phoebe

Joey: Hey, Pheebs, where were you?
Phoebe: I'm so, so sorry. I am definitely gonna see your play. I swear, your play is very important to us. Thank you for your patience. Your play is the next play I'm gonna see.


Quote from Chandler

Ross: Look, I wasn't gonna say anything to you, but... All right, I don't think you should be seeing Tommy anymore.
Rachel: You don't?
Ross: No, the guy is mean. I mean, really mean. I think you should stay away from him.
Rachel: Hmm. Or maybe I should stay away from all men.
Ross: No. It's not just because I'm jealous. I mean, I'm not. I'm not jealous. Look, the guy screamed- He actually screamed at this couple sitting in our seats.
Chandler: Yeah, and at the end of the play, he got up, and he just started, like, banging his hands together.

Quote from Phoebe

Rachel: Phoebe, are you still on hold? I was supposed to call my dad back two hours ago.
Phoebe: Oh, yeah. He clicked on. Call him as soon as you get a chance. He's at Flimbees.
Rachel: What's Flimbees?
Phoebe: That's the word I use when I can't remember the real thing.

Quote from Chandler

Joey: Ross, how about you?
Ross: Yeah, I also need two.
Monica: Really? Who's number two?
Chandler: "Whose Number Two?" One of the more difficult games sewer workers play.

Quote from Phoebe

Phoebe: I'm setting the phone down. But I'm still here. Just don't go anywhere. I'm still here.
Don't switch or anything, because I'm right here. Just one sec. One sec. One second! Wait! One second! Just...
Monica: What?
Phoebe: Monica, I'm scared!
Monica: Honey, that's a sleeve. Also, we have speakerphone.

Quote from Ross

Ross: Well, this is awkward.
Tommy: Yeah?
Ross: Well, you know, because Rachel and I used to go out.
Tommy: Oh, I didn't know that.
Ross: Oh. Well, then this is awkward.

Quote from Chandler

Ross: I'm telling you, this guy Rachel is with is crazy. He viciously screamed at total strangers. I think he's bad news.
Chandler: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. You don't like the guy Rachel's dating? Well, that's odd.

Quote from Joey

Kate: You really think these newspapers are just jealous of me?
Joey: Absolutely. You're talented and you're good-looking.
Kate: You're sweet and cute.
Joey: I know. That's why they trashed me.

Quote from Phoebe

Monica: Pheebs, you've been up for 24 hours. Go to sleep. Honey, this isn't healthy.
Phoebe: No, no, I'm fine. And you know why? Because of all the riboflavin.

Quote from Monica

Monica: Joey, you had "the night"!
Joey: What?
Monica: When two people finally realize their feelings for each other and they talk for hours and learn all about the other person.
Joey: You think?
Monica: Did you, like, learn about her family?
Joey: Two brothers. One died.
Monica: Yes!
