Chandler: But you said you forgave me. It was just a couple of cigarettes, no big deal.
Monica: Oh, blah-blah-blah-blah. I just said that because I was ovulating and-and you said you wouldn't
have sex with me if we're fighting.

Chandler: I feel so used.

Rachel: Yeah, it wasn't easy, but it's your birthday and I did what I had to do.
Phoebe: And that's Judy over there at the bar with Emma?

Rachel: You guys ever hear the story about when Ross's Mom went to the beauty salon?
Chandler: You mean the willy story?
Ross: Ha-ha, they already know it! [Ross wins, but then realizes that perhaps it's not a good thing that they
already know this story.]
Phoebe: You guys, we've been waiting for you for a long time. Maybe you should order.

Ross: Mommy! [They all look at him.] Mother.
Phoebe: [getting up and shouting] Oh, for God's sake, Judy, pick up the sock! Pick up the sock! Pick up
the sock! [Everybody stares.] I'm sorry, was that rude? Did-did-did my, did my little outburst blunt the
hideousness that is this evening? Look, I know you all have a lot going on, but all I wanted to do was have

Joey: [to Chandler and Monica] And what is going on with you two?

you and we are ready to start your birthday celebration.
Phoebe: Oh, you guys, that means the world to me. Okay, I'm gonna take off.
Phoebe: Oh, I love you guys too, but, you know, Mike got off work early. Wait. Wait, I'm not the, not the kind
of girl that just ditches her friends to be with her boyfriend. You know what? I am. Bye, guys! [waves to the
