Rachel: Wait, I-I just said "leave".
Phoebe: Yeah, I know, because you have all the good words. What do I get? I get "it's", "and", oh, I'm sorry,
I have "a". Forget it.
Rachel: Phoebe, come on, that's silly.
Phoebe: All right, so let's switch.
Rachel: No, I have all the good words. Okay, fine, fine, we can switch.
Phoebe: Please…Wait. How did you do that?
Phoebe: Oh, you're no ordinary roommate, are you? This is gonna be interesting.
Rachel: Phoebe, come on, can we finish this later? 'Cause I wanna go running before it gets dark. Oh!
Why don't you come with me?
Rachel: Yeah, it'll be fun. We'll run in the park. It'll be like our-our first, you know, roommate-bonding thing.
Phoebe: Okay, let's go running!
Rachel: Yeah, and there's really cute guys there.
Phoebe: Let's run towards them!
Phoebe: All right, wait, just one more second. "Hi, it's Phoebe and Rachel's. Please leave a message.

Monica: [jumps over a box] Oh, honey, that's a great idea nailing the boxes to the floor!
Chandler: I didn't nail the boxes to the floor.
Monica: Oh, so you can move them!

Joey: "When can you move in?"
Ross: Thank you for bringing her into our lives.
Monica: Down, boy!
Chandler: Oh, no-no-no. She's not my type. Not for me. She's not my type. She's too…
Monica: Beautiful, tall, sexy, showing her stomach?
Chandler: Hey, look at all the boxes!
Joey: Oh, I cannot wait to ask her out!
Monica: Wait a minute. Joey, Joey, you can't ask her out. She's your roommate. It-it'll be way too
Ross: Yeah, yeah, man, don't do it. I mean, if you date her, then-then-then I can't date her.
Chandler: Look, you know, what if you started going out with her and it didn't work out?
Ross: That's when I make my move.
Chandler: Now remember when you were going out with that girl Donna and you guys broke up.
Remember how horrible it was when you guys bumped into each other at the supermarket?
Joey: Oh, God, yeah.
Chandler: Now imagine you live at the supermarket.
Joey: [happily] Okay!
Joey: Oh, oh, you're right! I don't want that. I can't date her!
Monica: Yeah, and you better watch the flirting too, because, you know, in such close quarters, it could be

Joey: Well, that's gonna be tough, Mon. I mean, it's hard for me to be around an attractive woman and

Monica: [chuckles] Hmm, well, you're around me all the time and you don't flirt.
Joey: You a little sad about that, sweetie?
[Scene: The Park. Phoebe and Rachel are getting ready to go running.]

Rachel: Aw, Mon…[kisses her on the cheek]
Monica: So, Phoebe runs weird, huh?
Rachel: Yeah, yeah, and you know what? I know she's gonna wanna run again. I just don't know how to get
out of it. I mean, I live with her.
Monica: Why don't you just be straight with her? Tell her the truth.
Rachel: You're right, you're right. I should just tell her the truth.
Rachel: Pheebs, Monica tripped me. I don't think I can ever run again, ever!
Phoebe: But we were having so much fun. All those cute guys were checking us out.
Rachel: I know. They were definitely staring.
Phoebe: Why? Why would you do that?
Monica: I don't know. Rachel, I'm-I'm sorry that I hurt your ankles.
Monica: We'll see.
[Scene: Monica and Chandler's Apartment. Chandler is putting something away under the sink.]
Chandler: Okay, I'm officially unpacked. Thanks for helping me, man. [turns around and sees that Joey
isn't there] Joe? [hears giggling coming from a box] Well, I guess Joey went home. Oh, and look,
there's still one box that I have to unpack. [hears the giggling again]
Joey: [jumps out of the box] I got you!
Chandler: [pretending] Oh, my God! You almost gave me a heart attack.
Joey: Boy, it was so hard not to laugh, I tell ya. Hey, hey, the place looks great!
Chandler: Yeah, not bad, right? You know what? Monica's gonna be working late, so I'm gonna make this

Chandler: Okay, now how's that going though? Are you okay with the not-flirting thing?
Joey: Yeah. Well, so far, yeah. But it's tough, you know. I got all this-this built-up flirting energy and I don't
know how to get rid of it. [gives Chandler the "Joey-love" look] How you doin'?
built-up ['biltʌp]: 以增添组件而加高的，层层叠叠的

[Scene: Joey and Janine's Apartment. Joey walks in to see Janine stretching.]
Joey: Oh, man!
Janine: Sorry, there's just more room out here.
Joey: No-no-no-no-no, it's-it's, uh, you just, uh, uh, reminded me that, uh, I need to do my stretches too.
[starts to stretch]
Janine: [touches his waist] Why don't you try to be-? [Joey jumps up and yells.] What's wrong?
Joey: Uh-uh, nothing. I just, I-I-I-I didn't want you to touch me because I'm-I'm all sweaty from the workout.
I better hit the shower. [goes into the bathroom and comes back out quickly] Oh, my God!
Janine: Oh, sorry about that stuff hanging in there. It's just my thongs are too delicate for the dryer.
[Joey laughs nervously and goes to his bedroom.]
[Scene: The Park. Rachel is running and Phoebe is hiding behind a tree.]
Phoebe: [jumps in front of Rachel] Hi! Oh, yeah, uh-huh, it's me. I saw you grab your running shoes this
morning and sneak out. You lied so you could run by yourself.
Rachel: No, no, Phoebe, no, I was…no. You know what? I was, I was actually just checking to see if I could
run. And I can!
Phoebe: Please, Rachel, I am not an idiot. [runs off]
Rachel: No, wait, Phoebe.
