Ross: You know, you would've liked Joan. She is very pleasant. [points to someone in the room] There,
there. Her back looks like that. That's not broad, is it?
[Scene: Iridium Restaurant. Phoebe and Joey are looking at the menus.]
Phoebe: Come on, Joey! You've got to be ready to order by now.
Joey: You know what? I don't think I like this table either. Maybe-maybe we should move again.
Phoebe: No! We are staying right here. [A man passes by.] Excuse me, we are ready to order.
the Man: I don't work here.

special lobster ravioli.

Joey: You were right before. Friends are so important.
Phoebe: [checking her watch] Yeah, I'm very wise. I know.
Joey: You know-you know what I really want?

the Waiter: Any progress?
Joey: Yes! I will have the lobster ravioli.
Phoebe: My God, Joey, this is taking forever!
Joey: What's the rush? What?

Joey: Oh-oh, what is it?
Phoebe: Well, it's a date.
Joey: A date? No, no, Pheebs, you-you must be mistaken, because I know you wouldn't schedule a date
on the same night you have plans with a friend!
Phoebe: Come on, Joey, don't make me feel badly about this.
Joey: No, I'm gonna! That's right! Yeah, you made me feel really guilty about going out with that girl!
Like-like-like I did something terrible to you! And, now, Pheebs, you're doing the same thing!
Phoebe: That's not the same thing! This is totally different! This is with David! Remember David, the
scientist guy? Okay, he's very special to me.
Joey: Okay, well, my girl from the other night was special. She was a scientist too!
Phoebe: She was?
Joey: Well, she graduated high school!
Phoebe: Okay, whatever. You know what? I don't have time to convince you because he's only here for
four hours, and I'm gonna go see him! [gets up and leaves]
Phoebe: Yeah! [exits]
Joey: [to the waiter] What are you still doing here? I told you, lobster ravioli!
[Scene: Outside Central Perk. Phoebe is running up to meet David.]
David: Hey! Oh, I was just about to leave. I-I-I-I didn't think you were coming.
Phoebe: Oh, I wouldn't miss this.
David: Well, I'm very glad you're here. [kisses her hand]
Phoebe: Oh, you're such a gentleman. Come on! We're going to my place!
[Scene: Joey and Rachel's. Rachel is eating the cheesecake and Chandler enters.]
Chandler: Are you eating the cheesecake without me?
Rachel: [with a mouthful] Mm-mm. [nods no]
Chandler: I will give you $100 to whistle right now. [She tries to whistle and blows little chunks of
cheesecake out of her mouth.] How can you eat the cheesecake without me?
Rachel: Oh, what are you gonna do? Are you gonna go run tell Monica? Are you gonna tell Joey? No!
Because then you will have to tell them what we did! We are desert stealers! We are living outside the

Chandler: You know what? I don't trust you with this cake anymore! And I got it first, and I'm taking it back!
Rachel: What? What?
Chandler: Oh, yes!
Rachel: Wait a minute!
Chandler: Oh, yes!
Rachel: Oh, no-no-no-no-no. No, you don't!
Chandler: Oh, yes! Oh, yes!
Rachel: You think I trust you with it? No! We're gonna split it! You take half and I take half!
Chandler: Well, that's not fair. You've already had some!
Rachel: What? Oh, well then, you know what? I think Monica would be very interested to know that you
called her cheesecake dry and mealy.

Chandler: What do we use to split it?
Rachel: Okay! [cuts it in half] All right, pick a half.

Rachel: Oh, for God's sake, just pick a piece!
Chandler: All right, I pick that one.
Rachel: Ha, that's also the smaller piece. [puts the piece onto a plate] Okay, there you go. Enjoy your half,
my friend, but that is it. No sharing. No switching. And don't come crying to me if you eat your piece too
fast. [She stumbles and drops her cheesecake on the floor.] Oh!
Chandler: [holding his piece] Oh!
Rachel: All right, you gotta give me some of your piece.
Chandler: Oh-ho-ho-ho-no! No! No switching! No sharing. And don't come crying to me! Ha-ha-ha! I may
just sit here and have my cake all day! Just sit here in the hallway and eat my…[Rachel knocks the plate
from his hand and it falls on the floor.]

mouth with a napkin.] Every time on the lips! Why? Why on lips?
[Cousin Frannie and her husband enter.]

Monica: Am I doing here? Why? Surprised to see me? Ross brought me. How do you like that?
Ross: Hi, Frannie. Congratulations.
Monica: You invite my brother, you invite my whole family, and not me? Why? Why wouldn't you want me
at your wedding? What could I have possibly done? [Frannie's husband walks up.] Stuart!
Stuart ['stjuət]: 斯图尔特(男子名)
Frannie: I believe you know my husband.
Ross: So it's really a question of who could you have possibly done.
[Scene: Outside Central Perk. David is saying goodbye to Phoebe.]
David: Oh, I hate this, but I-I-I have to go. I-I can't miss my flight.

you know, I…have to leave.
Phoebe: You're right! You're right. Don't say it.
David: I-I do though.
Phoebe: I do too. [They kiss.]
David: Bye, Phoebe.
[He gets in the cab. Joey walks up and witnesses that event.]
Phoebe: [seeing him] Okay, now's not the time, Joey, all right? You can yell at me tomorrow.
Joey: No! No! No, Pheebs, I'm not gonna yell at you. I just, you know, started thinking about you and David
and I…remember how bummed you were the first time he left. And I just…Oh, Pheebs, come here. [He
hugs her.] Are you okay?
Phoebe: No, I'm not okay. The only guy I've ever been crazy about has gone to Minsk and I may never…I
may never see him again.
Joey: Hey, you know you could always visit him.
Phoebe: Oh, right, like they're gonna let me have a passport.
Joey: Anything I can do? Whatever you need.

of the cheesecake.]
Rachel: Oh! Yay! Look! There's a piece that doesn't have floor on it!
Chandler: Stick to your side!
Rachel: Hey, come on, now!
[Joey finishes climbing the stairs and sees them. Chandler and Rachel both stop and look up at him.

Monica: Just go do it.
Ross: All right. Wait here.
Aunt Millie: Hi, sweetie! Are you leaving?
Aunt Millie: Give us a kiss. Come on! Come on!

[He wipes his mouth on Monica's wrap and walks off, leaving Aunt Millie stunned.]
