never left the bedroom. But have fun at the movie.
Monica: Oh, we're not seeing a movie!
Phoebe: You're not? Then why did you ask us if we wanted to go?
Monica: Oh, um, that's because I just, you know, wanted to know what you guys were doing, so, you
know, you wouldn't walk in on me and Chandler while we were, you know, doing it all night. Will you
excuse me for just a second?

Monica: Because Gary and Phoebe think they're a hotter couple than we are!
Chandler: Oh, so?
Monica: So! So we've got to go upstairs and have a lot of sex and prove them wrong!
Chandler: Monica, you have got to stop this competitive thing, okay? It's crazy. I mean, just to
impress Gary and Phoebe, you want me to go upstairs and have sex with you over and over and
over…And I'm saying no to this, why? Get your coat!

Ross: Never mind!

just moved in.

Rachel: [looks around for the camera] Okay. Um, well, first, I would like to start by apologizing for
kissing you and, uh, for yelling at you.
Mr. Zelner: Fair enough.
Rachel: Now, you're probably going to hire one of the people who, uh, who did, who did not, um, yell
at you and storm out. And I think that's a big-big mistake. Here's why. I made a huge fool of myself
and I came back. That shows courage. When I thought you wanted sex in exchange for this job, I
said no. That shows integrity. And I was not afraid to stand up for myself and that shows courage.
Okay, now I know I've already said courage, but, you know, you've gotta have courage. And, um,
and finally when I thought you were making sexual advances in the workplace, I said no and I was
not litigious. So there you go. You got, you got courage, you got integrity, you got…courage again

Rachel: [gasps] Oh, you are?
Mr. Zelner: Um-hmm.
Rachel: Really? Oh, thank you! Oh, God. Oh, would it be completely inappropriate to give you a hug?
Mr. Zelner: Yes!
Rachel: Okay, well then, how about a handshake? [She goes to shake his hand but misses and
touches his groin.] Oh, God. I'm sorry! Oh, God. I'm sorry! I did not mean to touch that—I mean,
you, there, there. Uh, okay, so thank-thank you. I'm gonna leave. Thank you very much. Thank you
so—Hey! I'll-I'll see you Monday! [exits]

you and I really don't wanna disappoint the guy in the second stall. [The guy leaves.] Sorry, man.

Monica: Wasn't it a lot more exciting when we were, you know, all over each other all the time?
Chandler: Yeah, that was great. That was really great! But to tell you the truth, I'm more excited about
where we are right now.
Chandler: Yeah! I've never been in a relationship that's lasted this long before. You know, to get past
the beginning and still wanna be around each other all the time, I think that's pretty incredible. And the
fact that this is all happening with you, yeah, I think that's pretty exciting. [kisses her]
Monica: That is so sweet. I know that I was acting a little crazy, but, um, I feel the same way.
Chandler: Yeah? [They hug.] You know what I just realized? You just freaked out about our
Monica: I did not.
Chandler: Yes, you did! Admit it! You freaked out!
Monica: Okay, I freaked out a little.
