Phoebe: Wow. I didn't know you guys actually used those.
Vince: So what's up?
Phoebe: Um, wow. This-this isn't gonna be easy. Um, I don't think we should see each other anymore.
Vince: Uh-huh. Good deal.
Phoebe: I'm sorry.
Vince: No-no, it's okay. It's just that uh, I thought we had something pretty special here. And, you know,
I-I felt like you were someone I could finally open up to. There's so much in me I haven't shared with you yet.

what it would be like to say yes. [Rachel slams the magazine shut in amazement.] I know it's a little
sudden, and it's a little rushed, and it's totally not like me to do something like this, but that doesn't

Ross: What? What?
Guru Saj: We appear to have angered it.
Ross: We? We angered it?
Guru Saj: Oh, I think I see the problem. And I'm afraid we're gonna have to use a much stronger tool. Love.
Ross: Oh, God.
Guru Saj: Ross, often these things are nothing more than just negative energy trying to escape your body.
Now, this is not gonna come off unless you learn to love it, my friend. So let me hear you say, you will love
Ross: I love the kundus.
