people of the opposite sex, or both. 性取向

Ross: Okay, you know, you know, I'm sorry, this is insane! I-I-I'm not addicted to heroin. I'm not gay. And
there is no problem with my ability to consummate anything! Look, I'll-I'll consummate this marriage right
here, right now!
The Judge: That won't be necessary.
Ross: And when we were dating we consummated like bunnies!
The Judge: Now if you two were involved in a serious relationship, that really creates a problem.

Ross: [stands up] That's great! You happy now? Look what you did with your funny, funny form!
Rachel: [stands up as well] What? Me? What about you and your "consummated like bunnies" nonsense?
Ross: And what—[notices the stenographer is still typing]—What are you typing that for? Did you hear what
she said? We don't get the annulment. Don't type that! What? Stop typing! [He goes over to where the
stenographer is typing and in the process pushes Rachel out of his way.] Hey! Stop typing! [He's still typing.]
"Stop typing! Stop typing!"
Rachel: [to the judge] Okay, okay, do you see, do you see what you're keeping me married to?
The Judge: You need to get out of my chambers.
Rachel: All right, look, lady, here is the deal, I came here for an annulment and I am not leaving here until
I get one!

Chandler: But you found the keys to his clothes?
Joey: No, I just, uh, I just love the way it feels when everybody thinks I own a Porsche.
Monica: And people will think you own a Porsche because you're wearing the clothes?
Joey: Of course! Only an idiot would wear this stuff if you didn't have the car, right?
Chandler: That is true.
Phoebe: Yeah, but only a genius would swallow a sonic blaster gun.

one. [She throws it at the garbage without looking and it knocks over a vase and flowers.] Okay, I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to scare you. I just have to clean that up, okay? 'Cause, let's face it, we're at Monica's. [She
crawls over to clean.] I broke it. All right. Well, that's just the way things go. [She throws out both the flowers
and the vase.] Okay, good. [She turns around and only counts two babies.] Why are there only two of you?
Where's Leslie? Well, you can't answer. Leslie? Where are you, Leslie? Leslie, now would be a good
time for your first words! [She finds that Leslie has managed to crawl into the bottom drawer of the TV

have babies! When will that be?
Chandler: [pauses] Phoebe, would you take a look at this mess?

Rachel: Okay, wait, Ross, we're—wait a minute. Um, I, uh, kinda have a little confession.
Rachel: Uh, well, you know, this whole marriage thing, kinda my idea.
Ross: Excuse me?
Rachel: Uh, well, remember how we were too drunk to remember anything the night we were married?
Rachel: And, uh, yeah, I didn't really, I didn't wanna say anything, but it just, it kinda kept coming back to me.
And, um, remember we were in the casino and for some reason you thought it would be funny to eat a lot of
grapes? And, uh, and I thought it would be funnier if we got married. So as a, as a compromise, we decided
first to get married, and then…[Ross joins in] to eat a lot of grapes. So, um, sorry I got us into this whole thing.
for some reason: 由于某种原因
Ross: So then if-if—I mean, if you think about it, this is all…your fault.
Rachel: Yeah, don't push it though.
Ross: I gotta say, I, I know I divorce a lot of women, never thought I'd be divorcing you.

a secret and we wouldn't have our wedding dinner at Pizza Hut.

on the car cover, and collapses it. It turns out that Joey set up a bunch of boxes to make it look like a
