Phoebe: I knew I should've married Chandler.
[Phoebe and Rachel go to the back room.]
Monica: Okay, what's up?

[Scene: Chandler goes to see Ms. McKenna.]
Chandler: Ma'am, uh, do you, uh, have a minute? [She points for him to come in.] I kind of have some bad
news. I-I don't think I can move to Tulsa.
Ms. McKenna: What?
Chandler: Uh, it's a funny story, actually. Uh, I kind of fell asleep in the meeting this morning, so when I
said I'd move to Tulsa, I didn't really know what I was saying.
Ms. McKenna: You fell asleep?
Chandler: But only because I was up all night worried about this meeting. Ain't that funny? Irony? Not a
fan? All right. See, here's the thing. I went home and told my wife about Tulsa and-and she won't go.
See, me, I love Tulsa. Tulsa is heaven. Tulsa is Italy. Please don't make me go there!
Ms. McKenna: Chandler, I-
Chandler: No, no, no! I know that you're upset, but I just, I would really rather just stay here. Not here, in your
office. Here, here at the company, where I'm rapidly feeling unwelcome. Look, Carol, can I call you Carol?
Why would I when your name is Elaine? Oh, what a great picture of your son, strapping. That's a picture

him.] Maybe later. Ross, I feel terrible.
Ross: You know what? You can go. I just have to fill out some forms. [tries to hold the pen, but can't]

Joey: Come on, you guys are more than that! I mean, you're gonna get together, right?
Ross: I don't think that we are.
Joey: But you two were supposed to be together.
Ross: Well, I thought so too. Then she said she'd marry you.
Joey: Come on, Ross, that didn't mean anything! She-she-she just had the baby. She was all freaked out
about doing it alone. She-she would've said yes to anybody.
Ross: Yeah, that's-that's what she said
Ross: So I don't wanna be just anybody.
Ross: You know what? It's, it's, it's better this way anyway. I mean, I don't know what I was thinking going
down that road again with us. It's just much easier if we're, if we're just friends who have a kid.
Joey: And-and you're okay with that?
Ross: Yes. I mean, it's what we always planned. And if-if you have a plan, you should stick to it.
That's-that's-that's why they call them plans. Hello! I'm fine.
Joey: Hey, for what it's worth, with Rachel, I don't think you'll ever be just "anybody".
Ross: Hey, there you go! [Joey used the air quotes correctly.]
[Scene: Ross and Rachel's. Emma continues to cry.]
Rachel: Oh, my God! How long has she been crying?
Monica: About a week and a half.
Phoebe: All right, well, looks like you guys got it under control, so I'm just gonna go. [She gets up and
Rachel and Monica stare at her.] No? Really? Misery really does love company? All right! [She sits back
Monica: Rach, try holding her a different way.
Rachel: Look, you guys, I'm doing the best I can. Anyone else is welcome to try.
Phoebe: All right, I'll try, fine! Yes, okay!
Rachel: Okay, here you go. [hands Emma to Phoebe] Oh, gosh.
Phoebe: Shh! Nothing works with this child! [hands her back after two seconds]
Rachel: Oh, God. What am I gonna do, you guys? I can't even comfort my own baby! I'm the worst mother
Monica: No, you're just new with this. You'll get better. I mean, think about your first day at work. I mean,
that couldn't have been easy, but you figured that out.
Rachel: Yeah, I don't think dressing provocatively is going to help me here! Oh, my God, just please take her.
Monica: Okay, I'll take her. Here.
Rachel: Oh, boy, I have to go to the bathroom.

Phoebe: I can, I can hear traffic and birds. I can hear the voice in my head again! [Monica looks at her
strangely.] I'm kidding.
Rachel: Oh, my God! You got her to stop crying!
Monica: Yes, I did. I'm Monica, Super Aunt.
Rachel: You are the official baby-crier stopper!
Monica: Yes, I am!
Rachel: You're never leaving the apartment!
Monica: Say what?
Rachel: That's your new job. Day or night, she starts crying, I need you here.
Monica: Oh, no-no-no-no-no-no!

let's-let's give it six to eight months. [leaves]

Chandler: [entering] Hey.
Monica: Shh-shh-shh! We just got her to go to sleep.
Chandler: Oh, so there-there can't be any yelling.
Chandler: We're moving to Tulsa.
Chandler: Shh-shh-shh! Shh-shh-shh! Shh-shh-shh! Shh-shh-shh! [walks backwards towards the door]
I can't, I can't hear you. [runs out]
[Scene: Ross and Rachel's. Ross finally comes home.]
Rachel: Hey, where have you been? [He shows her his thumb.] What happened to you?
Ross: Ah, I had a little thing with Joey. If you think this is bad, you should see him.
Rachel: Oh, no, Ross! This is not good. Please, we have to talk about this Joey thing. Please sit.
All right, you have got to get over this Joey thing, okay? I never really wanted to marry Joey, okay?
Rachel: You know what I really, really want?
Ross: What, Rach?
Rachel: I wanna sleep. I wanna eat. I wanna take a shower. I mean, before she wakes up, we gotta do this
all over again.
Rachel: I mean, 'cause I got news for you, mister. Emma, not easy.
Ross: Well, that's what I'm here for, so...[Emma starts crying again.] You want me to get that?
Rachel: No, that's really okay. Monica!
Monica: Got it! Got it! Got it! Got it! Got it! Got it!
[Scene: Central Perk. Joey and Ross are there. ]
Joey: You know, uh, I've been thinking about this and I gotta tell you, it's not my fault. It's a natural instinct.

Chandler: [entering] What are you guys talking about?
Joey: Hey, great, okay, what would you do if I did this? [swings to punch Chandler but he moves. Joey
ends up punching Ross. Ross then gets up and just stares at Joey.]
