Monica: These are for Erica!
Ross: What? She's gonna eat all those cookies?
Monica: Well, I want he baby to come out all cute and fat!

what? I'm gonna go home and get a bunch of your stuff, so that you're really comfortable.
Dr. Green: Oh, thank you, sweetheart.

Ross: Sorry. You okay?
Ross: Yeah, you had a rough day, huh?
Rachel: Yeah, just so weird seeing him like that, you know. I mean, he is a doctor. You don't, you don't
expect doctors to get sick!
Ross: But we do! He's gonna be okay, Rach!
Rachel: Oh, I don't want him to wake up alone! I should go to the hospital!
Ross: What? No, no! Hey, hey, hey, look…

go see him first thing in the morning, okay?

kiss him, but he ducks away.] Oh, oh. No, Rach! I'm sorry, I just don't think this, this, this is a good
sleeping bag: a thick warm bag that you use for sleeping in, for example when you are camping 睡袋
Rachel: Wait. We won't know that until we do it, will we?
Ross: No, look, uh, you are upset about your father and you're feeling vulnerable and I just don't feel
it would be right. I feel like I'd be, you know, taking advantage of you.
Rachel: What? Taking advantage? I'm giving you the advantage. Enjoy!
Ross: Look, I'm sure it would be great, but I-I think one of us has to be thinking clearly, so, I'm gonna go!
Rachel: Wow. Okay.
Ross: I'll see you in the morning .
Ross: I haven't had sex in four months. I should get a medal for that!
