Joey: Nothing. I'm just practicing blowing you off 'cause I'm gonna be a big movie star!
Phoebe: Oh, you got it?
Joey: Well, no, not yet. But the audition went really good.
Monica: Well, what's it for?

the turn of the century. It's really classy! Oh, and the director is supposed to be the next, next Martin

Joey: [to Monica and Phoebe] They loved me!

Joey: I know! My grandmother's gonna see this!
Phoebe: Grandma's gonna have to get in line.
[Scene: Monica and Chandler's. Monica, Phoebe and Ross are there.]
Phoebe: Hey, the wedding is so close! Are you getting nervous?
Monica: Yeah. But a part of me also can't wait till it's over. Chandler and I have this pact not to have sex
again until the wedding.
Ross: A "no sex" pact, huh? I actually have one of those going on with every woman in America.

a few days.

when we couldn't find you, you'd gone home to make up with Rachel, which is probably what you should've done,
Cassie ['kæsi]: 凯西(女子名)
Ross: Wow, I haven't seen her for, like, forever. I wonder if she still carries that Barbie everywhere she goes.
Monica: Ross, she's 25 years old.
Ross: So what? I still have—No, you're probably right.

[Scene: Monica and Chandler's. Joey is entering.]
Monica: Hey! What did you decide to do about the movie?
Joey: I don't know! I mean, it's not like it's porn! This is a serious, legitimate movie, you know. And the
nudity is really important to the story.
Monica: That's what you say about porn.
Joey: You're right. Maybe I shouldn't even go on the callback.
Monica: No! No, you should! A lot of major actors do nude scenes! I mean, the chance to star in a movie?
Joey: Well, that's true. And I am only naked in one scene. Plus, it sounds really great. My character's
catholic and he falls in love with this Jewish girl. We run away together and then get caught in this big
rainstorm. So we go into this barn and undress each other and hold each other. It's really sweet and-and
run away: If you run away with someone, you secretly go away with them in order to live with them or marry them. 私奔

[Scene: Phoebe's Apartment. Phoebe and Rachel are trying to plan Monica's shower.]
Phoebe: So when can we have this shower?
Rachel: She has got so much going on. We have-we have only two options. We have Friday…
Phoebe: Well, that's just two days away. What is the other option?
Phoebe: Well, if we make it yesterday, woo-hoo! We're done!
Rachel: Oh, my God, Phoebe, this is impossible! We can't do this by Friday! We have to find a place.
We have to invite people! We have to get food! There's just too much to do! It's impossible! We
can't do it! We cannot do it! We cannot do it!
Phoebe: Rachel, calm down!
Rachel: [calmly] Okay. I'm sorry. You're right. You're right. I'm sorry.
Phoebe: [grabs and shakes Rachel] Just calm down, woman!
Rachel: Okay, Phoebe, I already, I already did.
Phoebe: Oh, okay. All right, then, I need to calm down a little.
Rachel: Okay. Okay, I think we can do this if we just get organized, all right? We have two days to plan this
party. We just need to make fast decisions. Okay. Where are we gonna have it?
Phoebe: Uh, here. What time?
Rachel: 4:00. Food?
Phoebe: Finger sandwiches and tea.

Chandler: You know, I was thinking if we had a, a big fight and, uh, we broke up for a few hours…

is in the guest room. We're supposed to have lunch.
Chandler: Well, get rid of her, obsessive and shrill.
shrill [ʃril]: (of sounds or voices) very high and loud, in an unpleasant way (声音)刺耳的

Cassie: Nice to meet you too.
Monica: So, are you ready to go?
[She lets her hair down and whips it around. Chandler can't help but stare along.]
Chandler: I'll be right with you.
[Scene: Central Perk. Ross is there as Chandler and Monica enters.]
Monica: [to Ross] Cassie needs to stay at your place.
Monica: Because Pervie Perverson over here can't stop staring at her.

[Scene: A Casting Director's Office. Joey is entering for his callback.]
Joey: Hey, I'm back!
the Casting Director: Hi-hi, Joey.
Joey: Uh, so, will-will I be reading the same scene again?
the Casting Director: Actually, I tried to call you. You didn't need to come down here today.
Joey: Oh, great! You know, I would've been perfect for this part, but whatever! You know, thanks for
making a bad decision and ruining your movie! Good day! [starts to leave]
the Casting Director: Wait, Joey! You didn't need to come down because the director saw your tape from
yesterday and loved it.
Joey: End scene! Huh? Wasn't that fun? We did a little improv there. Yeah! Okay! So you-you-you-you
improv [ˈɪmprɑv]: a type of performance, often involving comedy, that has not been rehearsed 即兴表演
the Casting Director: Well, the director thinks you're really right for the part and wants to meet you
Joey: Wow! Sure! That's great!
the Casting Director: Oh, and your agent said you were okay with the nudity.
Joey: Yeah! Yeah, sure, just as long as it's handled tastefully and that barn is not too cold.
the Casting Director: Terrific! Well, uh, there's one more thing. Uh, uh, it's really important to the
director that everything in this movie is authentic. Yeah, and so in your love scene with Sarah, she
talks about how she's never seen a naked man who wasn't Jewish. So…[laughs]
the Casting Director: So, uh, well, the director is insisting that whoever play that part be authentically,
anatomically not Jewish. You got what I'm saying?

[Joey thinks about it and finally realizes what she means.]
[Scene: Monica and Chandler's. Joey is telling Monica what the casting director was trying to get to.]
Monica: So, to get this part you can't be?
Monica: But you are?
Monica: But you told them you weren't?
Joey: That's right.
Monica: Wow! Wow! And it's definitely all gone? There's nothing there to work with? [Joey glares at her.]
What were you thinking?
Joey: I don't know! I really want this part, you know. And they tell you no matter what you get asked during
an audition, you say yes. Like if-if they want you to ride a horse, you tell them you can! And you just figure
out how to do it later.
Monica: Joey! This is not like learning to ride a horse! This is like learning to…grow a turtleneck!
Joey: I kn-I know! I know, okay? And apparently, tomorrow, when I go into meet the director, I have to
take off my clothes, so that they can see what my body looks like.
Monica: Oh, my God, what are you gonna do?
Joey: I just have to call my agent and tell her I can't do the part. [gets up for the phone]
Joey: Unless what?
Monica: Well, this may sound crazy, but there maybe something that we could fashion.
Joey: Like what?
Monica: Well, I'm not sure yet, but, um, off the top of my head, I'm thinking double-sided tape and some sort
of luncheon meat.
double-sided tape: 双面胶带
luncheon meat ['lʌntʃən]: a ground mixture of meat and cereal, usually tinned (罐装)午餐肉
