Phoebe: Oh, no, um, hi, that-that, um, you have to put that out 'cause I'm pregnant, so…

Charlton Heston: Put some pants on, kid, so I can kick your butt.
Joey: No-no-no, no, no, wait. You don't understand. See, I'm an actor, Joey Tribbiani. I'm doing a scene
with you today. And, well, I stink.

Joey: Oh, yeah.
Charlton Heston: I don't know one actor worth his salt who one time in his career didn't say, 'God, I stink!'
Hell, I just did a scene out there. First take, I've stunk the place up. But, the important thing that you must

Phoebe: Who, Josh?
Rachel: It's Joshua.
Monica: What, he doesn't like Josh?
Rachel: No, I don't.
Chandler: All right, well, I'm gonna put my sweats back on.
Phoebe: Oh, no! Wait! Wait! Okay, you know what? You were right. You were right. We really weren't great
at being guys, but you know why? Because we're girls.
Phoebe: Okay, do you know what girls are really good at?
Phoebe: No, listening! Sit! You know, maybe it just, would really, really help if you would just talk.
Rachel: Yeah, come on! What's going in on in there? [pats his chest]

Chandler: Okay, look, I'm gonna have to ask you all to leave.

Rachel: Well, are we all together like in a group?
Chandler: Stop it! You're killing me! I think I just moved on to phase four!
Phoebe: Oh! What is that? What is that?
Chandler: Where I don't wanna have a relationship ever! I just wanna have sex with strippers and my
[Scene: Central Perk. The gang is there minus Ross.]
Chandler: Come on. Let me see that smile.
Joey: I don't wanna.
Joey: I wanted to go to the strip club!
Chandler: I know. I know. But you're gonna have plenty of chances, okay? There are like thousands of
women out there who are just waiting to screw me over.
Joey: Yeah, all right.
Phoebe: Hey. Oh, how was Vermont?
Ross: Emily is…incredible. I mean, there-there are no words to describe her. The whole weekend was-was
like a dream. [sees Rachel coming back from the bathroom] Oh! And you! Rach!

Ross: Hey! You were so right!
Ross: Uh, what you said about us finally being in a place where we could really be happy for each other.
Rachel: Oh, hmm.
Ross: I mean, I, I-I admit I-I wasn't quite there, you know. I mean, the thought of you and that-that Josh guy…
Ross: Joshua…guy at that club, dancing, having a good time. And the thought of it kinda…you know.
Rachel: Yeah, I…
Ross: But now, but now, I'm totally there! I'm-I'm finally where you are!
Rachel: Oh, thank goodness!
Ross: Yeah, and-and thank you for Emily.
Rachel: Oh, no problem. I'm so glad I could help, you know. I'm happy for you. [She playfully punches him.]
Ross: Happy for you. [He punches her back.]
Rachel: Oh, no, happy for you! [hits him harder]
[Scene: Chandler and Joey's. Chandler is getting ready to direct a bunch of strippers. Monica, Rachel, and
Phoebe are there.]
Chandler: All right, ladies, here's what we're gonna do. You are gonna take off my clothes. You two, go get
the oils. And you just constantly scream at the top of your voice, 'Chandler's the king! Chandler's the king!

Rachel: No-no-no, that's not Joshua.
Chandler: What do you want from me? I've never met the guy. So anyway, Rachel, I'm sorry you can't stay.
The rest of us have a lot of work to do. [The cigarette guy starts rubbing Chandler's back.] What are you
doing? All right, listen, I gotta wake up!
