Phoebe: If you had to, what would you give up, food or sex?
Monica: [with no hesitation] Sex!
Chandler: Seriously, answer faster!
Monica: Oh, I'm sorry, honey, you know, but when she said "sex", I wasn't thinking about sex with you!
Chandler: It's like a giant hug.
Phoebe: Ross, how about you? What would you give up, sex or food?

swear, there's something going on with them. Look, he's getting into the car with her!

wondering if you wanted to come to the movies with me and Rachel.
Chandler: [on the phone] Oh, uh, I have to work too. Yeah, I'm stuck here at the office all day.
Phoebe: [on the phone] Oh, well, it's a shame that you'll, that you'll miss the movie 'cause we were gonna
see, you know, either "Liar Liar" or "Betrayal", or "An Affair To Remember".

Monica: Hey! Hey, sweetie. Hey, you smell like perfume and cigarettes.
Chandler: I was in the car with Nancy all day.
Monica: Nancy doesn't smoke!
Chandler: Well, at least the perfume is not mine. Be thankful for that!
Monica: So? What do you think of the house?

getting into Nancy's car, so if she asks you, I was at work all day.
Monica: Got you. When do we tell them about this?
Chandler: We don't. Not until it's 100 percent. I mean, why upset everybody over nothing?

Chandler: I know. Good luck with it.
[Scene: Joey and Rachel's. Everybody except Monica and Chandler is there.]

minutes and then they came out looking pretty happy!

Joey: Chandler? 45 minutes? Well, something's not right.

Rachel: Yeah. And if each of you guys would like to pitch in 100 bucks, that would be great.
Joey: I just can't believe he would do this to Monica!
Ross: I know, and with the baby coming?
Phoebe: So, should we tell her?
Ross: I don't know. Phoebe, if one of us saw Mike with another woman, would you want us to tell you?
Phoebe: Why? Who did you see him with?
Ross: No one. I'm just saying if we did…[Phoebe starts pinching him in his neck.]
Phoebe: Tell me what you know!
Ross: [yelling in pain] No one! Nothing! Mike's a great guy. It was hypothetical!
Phoebe: All right. [releases him] He is a good guy. You're right. He wouldn't cheat.
Ross: Believe me, if I did see with someone, there's no way I…[Phoebe starts pinching him again.]
Phoebe: Who did you see him with?
[Scene: Monica and Chandler's. Monica is cleaning with a vacuum and then she cleans it with a DustBuster.

Monica: All right.
Ross: We think Chandler might be having an affair.
Rachel: Phoebe and I saw Chandler with a blonde woman today outside on the street and then we followed
them to a house in Westchester.
Phoebe: They went in together. I'm so sorry.
Monica: Oh, my God! Oh, my God, that's awful! What did you think of the house?

Ross: What's going on?
Monica: Okay, alright, guys, you'd better sit down. This is, this is pretty big.
Chandler: Yeah. I'm not having an affair. Nancy is our realtor.
Joey: I knew he couldn't be with a woman for 45 minutes!
Phoebe: Why, why do you have a realtor?
Monica: Um, she's been showing us houses outside of the city.
Rachel: Are you serious?
Monica: When we found out that we're gonna get this baby, Chandler and I started talking and we decided
that we didn't wanna raise a kid in the city.
Phoebe: So you're, so you're gonna move?
Ross: Oh, my God.
Joey: Shouldn't we all vote on stuff like this?
vote on: 就…表决

Monica: And that's great for you guys, but we want a lawn and a swing set.

legislation regulating the strength of swing sets?)
Chandler: And a street where our kids can ride their bikes and maybe an ice-cream truck can go by.
Ross: So you wanna buy a house in the 50's?
Phoebe: Have you thought about what you're giving up? You can't move out of the city. What if, what if you
want Chinese food at 5 a.m.? Or a fake Rolex that breaks as soon as it rains? Or an Asian hooker sent
right to your door?

Chandler: Look, I know this is really hard and we're really sorry.
Joey: Is this because I come over here without knocking and eat your food? Because I can stop doing
that. I really, really think I can!
Chandler: You know that's not the reason, Joe.
Monica: I think if you saw it, you'd understand. I mean, you guys were there. It's-it's beautiful, isn't it?
Rachel: Yeah, it is.
Joey: What the hell are you doing?
Rachel: Well, it is, all right? When we were out there today, all I kept thinking was, I can't believe
Chandler is screwing this woman, but, man, this would be a nice place to live!
Phoebe: Yeah, but so is this.
Ross: Yeah, I mean, if you moved there, you have to leave here. I mean, how can you leave this place?
