glares at her.] There. Okay, I've blown both of your secrets. Now we're even.
Monica: Well, Rachel, the reason why I won't let you drive the Porsche is because you're a terrible driver.
There! That wasn't about the wedding.
Ross: Look, Rach, if-if you wanna go for a ride in the Porsche, I'll be glad to take you for a quick spin

Monica: Chandler, look, I-I know that your Dad embarrassed you. I know…
Chandler: No-no-no, all kids are embarrassed by their parents. You'd have to come up with a whole new
word for what I went through. When I was in high school, he used to come to all of my swim meets
dressed as a different Hollywood starlet. You know, it's hard enough to be fourteen. You're skinny. You're

cheering you on, okay? That's a, that's a pretty great dad.
Chandler: He had sex with Mr. Garibaldi!
Monica: Who's Mr. Garibaldi?
Chandler: Does it matter?
Monica: Chandler, you're not fourteen anymore, okay? Maybe it's time that you let that stuff go. If your
father's not at your wedding, you're gonna regret it for the rest of your life.
Chandler: Yeah, o-okay, but I'm just doing this for you.
Chandler: So I really never get to win anymore?
Monica: How much did you ever really win before?
