Phoebe: Yeah, Joey, that is so gross!
Joey: How about a scone on the house, baby?
Phoebe: [giggles] I'm pretty.
[Scene: Monica and Chandler's. Everyone but Monica is there playing Monopoly.]

Phoebe: Oh, I do! [She grabs her huge purse and starts rummaging through it and taking out various
items.] Here. Sorry. Oh, you know what? No. Wait a second. [She removes a bag filled with water
that has a goldfish swimming in it.] I know it's in here somewhere.
Ross: You know what? I'm good! I'm good!

Chandler: Say, does anybody have a goldfish?
Phoebe: [raises her goldfish] Oh!
Monica: [entering] Hey!
Chandler: Hey, what are you doing here? Shouldn't you be at work?

Chandler: I think you're sick 'cause that used to be in your nose. I'm gonna grab you some tissue.
Monica: I-I don't need a tissue! I'm fine-d!
Ross: When you put a "D" at the end of "Fine", you're not fine.
Monica: I'm fine-d. I'm fine-d! You know, it's a really hard word to say.
[There is a knock on the door. The gang is stunned and Phoebe counts to make sure that everyone is
there. Chandler goes to answers the door.]

Rachel: Well, this is Chandler.
Rachel: And you know Monica and Ross!
Ross: Hi, Jill.
Rachel: And that's Phoebe. And that's Joey.
Joey: Hey, how you doin'?
Rachel: Don't! [to Jill] Honey, what are you doing here?
Phoebe: [to Ross] Which-which sister is this? Is this the spoiled one or the one that bit her?
Jill: [to Rachel] Daddy cut me off.
Phoebe: Never mind. I got it.
Jill: And you know what I said to him? I said, "I'm gonna hire a lawyer and I'm gonna sue you and take all
your money, then I'm gonna cut you off!"
Rachel: Wow! What did he say?
Jill: He said he wouldn't pay for my lawyer! Then he told me to come here and learn about the value of
money from the one daughter he's actually proud of.
Rachel: Oh! Did you hear that? My Dad's proud of me! My Dad's proud of me.
Monica: Rach? [points to Jill]
Rachel: Oh, yeah, sorry. Wait, honey, so what did you do that made Dad cut you off?
Jill: Okay, I bought a boat.
Monica: You bought a boat?
Jill: Yeah, but it wasn't for me. It was for a friend.
Chandler: Boy, did we make friends with the wrong sister!
Jill: I knew it was stupid and I know I shouldn't have done it, but she bought me all these CDs and she
said I had a really cute haircut.
Chandler: And your Daddy didn't understand?
Jill: I know. And usually I just cry and say I'm sorry and then he forgives me.
Ross: Oh, yes, good criers, the Green girls. [Rachel and Jill glare at him.] I mean, I mean, the, uh, you
know, the Green sisters. [They are still glaring.] Man, no matter how you say it, it still sounds like you're
talking about Green people. I'm at rock bottom.
crier ['kraiə]: 哭喊者
Rachel: Jill, honey, I think this is the best thing that could've ever happened to you. I mean, you've needed
to get out on your own anyway! And, you know, when I did it, I-I, at first, I was scared, but then look at
me now! I'm the only daughter that Dad is proud of!
Jill: I just can't believe him. I mean, how does he expect me to buy stuff?
Rachel: Well, maybe, you just, uh, you know, you won't buy stuff for a while.
Jill: I don't understand.
Rachel: Okay, well, this is, this is what you're gonna do. You're gonna get a job. You're gonna get an
apartment. And then you will live off the money that you earn.
Jill: Okay, I know this is what you did, but, uh, that doesn't sound like me.
Rachel: Okay, but it can be, it can be you. And then I'll help you and you can stay with us. Right, Pheebs?
She can stay with us?
Phoebe: Of course, yeah!
Jill: Oh, that's so great! Okay, I'm really gonna do this! I don't know how to thank you guys.
Phoebe: Oh, I like cars.
[Scene: Central Perk. Joey is working.]
Joey: [to a customer] Are you all finished here?
The Customer: Yes.
Joey: Great! [Joey takes his cookie and eats it.]
Gunther: Okay, here are the tips for this morning. Jen gets 50, 50 for me, and Joey owes 8 dollars.
Gunther: For all the free food you gave away.
Joey: Well, if it's free food, how come you're charging me for it?
Gunther: We don't give anything away unless it's someone's birthday.
Joey: Oh. Well, what if they came in third in a modeling contest?

Joey: Oh. [to a woman] Sorry! [grabs her muffin away]
[Joey enters carrying a bunch of shopping bags.]
Jill: I just had the hardest day. Some of these are so heavy.
Ross: Jill, how did you pay for all this? I thought your Dad took away your credit card.
Jill: Oh, please, I memorized those numbers when I was 15. But look at all the cool make-it-on-my-own
stuff I got! This is my "please hire me" sweater. And these are my, "don't you wanna rent me this
Ross: I don't think charging new clothes to your Dad qualifies as making it on your own.
Jill: Oh, Mr. Scientist has to get all technical!
Phoebe: Seriously, I don't think Rachel's gonna think it's such a good idea.
Jill: So who made her queen of the world?
Phoebe: I would love that job!
Rachel: [entering] Hey! What's going on?
Rachel: Jill! Did you shop?
Jill: No! They did!
Phoebe and Ross: Yeah, we went shopping! Yeah.

when you know she's trying to quit. Wow, you guys, it's terrible!

"I want a job" sweater
Phoebe: And, and then I got, uh, these are apartment pants.
Rachel: Apartment pants?
Phoebe: Yeah, you've never heard of them?
Rachel: No, of course, of course I've heard of them! Ross, what did you get?
Ross: Huh? I got this—[holds up this pink thing] This!

Ross: It's a rug.
Jill: [covers her eyes and starts crying] Oh-oh-oh, I'm sorry, Rachel.
Rachel: Oh, come on! You really think that's gonna work on me? I invented that!
Jill: God, right! But I am sorry.
Rachel: All right, it's okay. One little setback is okay. But just don't let it happen again, all right?
Rachel: Now, since Daddy paid for all this stuff, I should take it all away. But I'm just gonna take the-the
pashmina. And the, uh, and the, uh, pants. You know what? I'm just gonna take it all away 'cause that
way you will just really learn the lesson, okay? Alrighty. Well, I'm gonna run a couple of errands and I
will see you at dinner.
Jill: Oh, she took all my stuff.
Ross: Yeah. Everything but the little blue one. [holds it up for her]
Jill: [gasps] That's the best one! Oh, my God, thank you so much! [hugs him]
Ross: Well. Hey…
Jill: Oh, my gosh, that was so lame. Like a pashmina could be a rug!
Ross: Oh, yeah? How about you with the "I'm sorry"? [mimics her fake cry]
Jill: [hits him] Shut up! I wasn't like that at all!
Phoebe: What about, what about when I said, you know, about the apartment pants? How dumb was I? Ha!
[They both look at her.]
Jill: Were you this cute in high school?
Ross: Oh, stop.
Jill: No, you stop!
Ross: No, you stop!
Jill: You stop!
Phoebe: [gets up and sits between them] Okay-okay, why don't I sit here and then you'll both stop it?
[Scene: Monica and Chandler's. Monica enters in the living room.]
Monica: Okay, so, what do you, what do you wanna do? Let's do something crazy!
Chandler: I know, let's rest and drink lots of fluids. [holds up a glass of orange juice]

Monica: [in a sexy voice] Come on. [coughs loudly]
Chandler: Don't take this personally, okay? It's just that I just can't have sex with a sick person.
Monica: I'm with you, Chandler! I mean, I can't have sex with a sick person either. That's disgusting! But
I'm not sick! Let me prove it to you. We are two healthy people in the prime of life.
Chandler: See, that's the thing. I would like to stay in the prime of life. [Monica does a little roar.] Oh, okay,
now I'll do it.
