[Scene: Joey and Rachel's. Rachel is getting ready for her date and Joey is reading a magazine.]

Rachel: Oh, no, I can't. I got a date.
Ross: A date?
Rachel: Yeah. Why? Is that weird for you?
Ross: Why, no, it's the opposite of weird. It's-it's, uh, it's regular. It's-it's, uh, it's mundane. It's actually, uh,

Joey: It's no Ukrainian film, I tell you.
Rachel: Oh! Earrings! [goes into her room]

Joey: I set her up with this actor on my show.
Ross: You set her up?
Ross: Joey, what-what were you thinking?
Joey: Well, I was thinking that it'd probably be okay because Ross hasn't gone out with Rachel in five years!
Ross: Joey, I'm not worried about her! I'm worried about my baby! Whoever she dates, my baby dates!
Now-now where is this "actor" taking them?
Joey: Hey! I'm an "actor" too! I'm not sure. I think they're taking the ferry out to some Italian place on

Joey: Are we talking about those big boats that carry cars that go like five miles an hour?
Ross: Why don't they just jump out of an airplane? Huh? That-that's a fun date! Or burn each other with
matches? That's fun too! Woo!
[There's a knock on the door and Joey answers it.]
Kash: Hey, Joey.

Ross: Okay. Have a great time, you guys.

[Scene: Central Perk. Phoebe is reading a magazine as Tim enters.]
Tim: Oh, I'm so glad you called. I feel like it's always me calling you. So, what's up? Is everything okay with
Phoebe: It will be in a minute. Listen, Tim, you're a really great guy.
Tim: That's because I'm with you.
Phoebe: Aw. [Phoebe gets a bad taste in her mouth when he looks away.] I'm just, I'm in a place in my life
right now where I…I…
[Tim's beeper goes off and he answers it.]
Tim: Whoops. So sorry. [like a newscaster] "This just in." [Phoebe fake laughs.] Oh, it's 9-1-1 from the

blows a kiss to Phoebe who catches it. When he leaves, Phoebe throws the kiss back.]
[Scene: Joey and Rachel's. Joey and Ross are having dinner.]
Joey: So what movie do you wanna see? And not another one I have to read, okay? I get enough of that
Joey: All right, car magazines, cereal boxes, but it's, like, enough!
Ross: Well, I tell you what, why don't we, uh, why don't we just stay here? Let's not see a movie. We'll just
Joey: And just wait for Rachel to come back from her date?
Ross: Hey, if that's what you wanna do, I'm not gonna say no.
Joey: Dude! What is going on?
Ross: I just, I have to find out how it went.
Ross: This guy could be my baby's stepfather!
Joey: They go on one date and you're worried about them getting married? He's not you!
Ross: I just, I-I can't believe she's-she's dating!
Joey: Well, Ross, what did you think she was gonna do?
Ross: I don't know! I guess I just can't believe any of this is happening.
Joey: What do you mean?
Ross: It's just I always thought when I had another kid, it'd be different. Now, I-I love Ben, but every time
I have to drop him off at Carol and Susan's, it's like, it breaks my heart a little. I mean, I've always had
this picture of me and my next wife in bed on Sunday, and, my kid comes running in and leaps up onto
the bed. And we all read the paper together, you know. Maybe fight over the science section.
Joey: That's a nice picture. Maybe you can still have that!
Ross: No! No, I can't. I mean, Rachel's out with some guy. My baby went with her. If anything, that picture
keeps moving further away.
If anything… (<比>112.Chandler: What rule? There's no rule. If anything, you owe me a table.)
Joey: Hey, can I ask you something? In this, in this picture of you and your wife, is your wife Rachel?
Ross: It used to be. Now-now she doesn't really have a face. Smoking body, though.
Joey: Good call. But, the face, Ross, the face isn't Rachel?
Ross: No, but, ah! How much easier would it be if it were?
Joey: Yeah, I know, but I don't think that's what she wants.
Ross: No, it's not what I want either. I mean, I-I can't force myself to fall in love with her again now, but…
Joey: Okay, Ross, maybe you need a new picture, okay? It's not gonna be what you thought, but no matter
what, there's gonna be a brand-new little baby, your baby. Who cares what the picture looks like?
Joey: Hey, I tell you what, let's you and me go out and have some fun, huh? Whatever you want. Come on!
Ross: [checks his watch] We can still catch that Ukrainian film.
Joey: No, I said fun!
[Scene: Outside Chandler's Office. Chandler is just about to go into his office when Bob calls for him from
Bob: Hey, Toby!
Chandler: Hey, Bobby.
Bob: It's Bob, actually. Hey, you work up here, can you tell me where this Chandler Bing's office is?

Chandler: Okay, Bob, listen, uh, I'm the reason you didn't get the job up here.
Bob: Toby, don't.
Bob: Toby! I'm not gonna let you cover for him. Anything you say right now will just get me more upset with
Chandler: Well, that puts me in a difficult position. If you do anything to Chandler, it's just gonna bring you
down to his level.
Bob: I guess you're right.
Chandler: Don't give him the satisfaction. You're better than Chandler! We're all better than Chandler!
Especially me, Toby!
[Scene: Monica's Restaurant Kitchen. Monica is waiting for Tim who enters.]
Tim: I got your pages. Is everything okay?
Monica: Uh, well, that-that depends. How are things with Phoebe?

Monica: Oh, my pleasure. Okay, I'm afraid I've got some bad news. [Phoebe enters.] Phoebe!
Monica: You're fired!
Phoebe: I'm breaking up with you!
Phoebe: I'm, I'm breaking up with you.
Monica: You're fired.
Phoebe: I'm sorry, I'm just, I'm-I'm just not ready for a relationship right now.
Monica: Yeah, and-and I'm sorry too. But, well, I just, I like things done a certain way and the chemistry's
just not right.
Phoebe: Oh, that's good. The chemistry thing for us too.
Tim: Wow! Um, okay. Um, [to Phoebe] I-I-I realize I came on a little strong, but it's only because I think
you're so amazing. [to Monica] And, uh, I-I just wanna, I wanna tell you how much I appreciate you
giving me an opportunity here because I—you're the most talented chef I've ever worked for. Anyway…
[starts to leave. Phoebe and Monica trade looks.]
Monica: Tim, wait!
Monica: Um, I think I spoke too quickly. There-there's a learning curve with this job and maybe we could try

you make 学习曲线；进步过程
Tim: Thank you so much! 'Cause I-I know I can be better!

Ross: Huh. What happened?
Rachel: I made the mistake of telling him that I was pregnant.
I made the mistake of… (<比>720.Rachel: I had this friend from college and I made the stupid mistake of telling Joey
that one time she and I, you know, kissed a little bit.)
Ross: Ah, he didn't, uh, take it so well?

Ross: Guess whose middle name is Muriel?
Rachel: [thinks then gasps] Chandler M. Bing?
Rachel: Oh, my God. [laughs]
Ross: I'm sorry about your date.
Rachel: Oh, that's all right. I guess I'm just done with the whole dating thing. It's just one more thing in my
life that's suddenly completely different. This is hard.
Ross: Yeah, I know. On the other hand, in, um, in about seven months, you're gonna have something that
you're gonna love more than any guy you've ever gone out with. Just wait. Wait until, uh, wait until the first
time your baby grabs your finger. You have no idea.
Rachel: Thanks, sweetie.
Ross: You, uh, you wanna grab some coffee?
Rachel: Oh, no, I think I'm gonna go home and eat ten candy bars.

Ross: Oh, that's right. Well, uh, would you be interested in seeing a Ukrainian film?
Mona: [laughs then stops] Oh, you're serious. Sure!
Ross: Great! Well, um…
[Ross continues to talk to her as the camera pans to show Rachel standing in the doorway.]
Mona: I think I might need one more cup of coffee.
Ross: Sure! Uh, let me get it for you.
[Rachel watches that and slowly backs out to head for home.]
