Matthew Ashford: Call me.
Monica: [yelling after him] We will!

Nobel Prize winner like Albert Wintermeyer.
Harvard [ˈhɑrvərd]: the oldest US university and usually considered the best. Harvard is one of the Ivy League

Rachel: I always loved that!
Ross: Of course you would. Your brains are smaller than mine! Man, I can't compete with the guys she goes
out with. They are so out of my league! Oh, my God!

Joey: That's science.
Dirk: Oh! Hey, well, listen, I play a scientist on "Days". And my character has just won the Nobel prize.
Joey: Hey, Ross, listen, Dirk was wondering about the woman that you brought and if you guys were
Ross: Oh, well, no, but, I mean, she-she only goes out with really, really smart guys.
Dirk: Hey, I got a 690 on my SATs.
Ross: I'd lead with that.

Monica: That's it. Just sign right on the bra.
Monica: Don't worry, Joe. I-I won't come next year!
Joey: [to Rachel] What you got there?
Ross: Well, just some boys gave me their phone numbers.
Joey: Ah, let me see! [She hands him a pile of tissues.] Damn, that's a lot of guys! Are you a little slutty?
Rachel: I think I am.
Joey: Let me see if I approve any of these clowns. This guy wears a rug. This guy's Canadian. And this guy
is in a cult. Okay, and it costs you $5,000 to get to level three and I don't feel any different. Pass, pass,
oh, pass, pass…
cult (<同>904.Mike: You're not gonna try and get me to join a cult, are you?)
Rachel: Why? Why? what's wrong with these guys?
Joey: Well, nothing major. It's just that, you know, they're not really good enough for you, and you deserve
Rachel: Joey, you're so sweet.
Joey: That's true. But you know what? It doesn't matter because I already know who you're gonna go home
Rachel: What? Really?
Joey: Yeah, because we live together. That's a joke!
Rachel: Right! Thats funny. I get it!
Joey: Got you!
Rachel: You're funny, Joey.
[Chandler walks in.]
Chandler: [to Monica] So, how did you enjoy the play?
Monica: Oh, my God, honey. I'm so-so-so-so-so-so sorry.
Chandler: Well, you should be. You missed the most powerful three hours in the history of the theater.
Monica: You really liked it?
Chandler: Oh, yeah! I mean, at first, I hated it, but why wouldn't I? Because as a man, I've been trained not
to listen! But after Chapter Sixteen: "fat, single and ready to mingle", I was uplifted.

[Scene: At the Counter. Ross is sitting there. Phoebe approaches him.]
Phoebe: Hey, Ross! So, listen, about you and-and the dinosaur girl, are you really just gonna let a couple
of Nobel Prizes scare you off? What is that? Come on, a piece of paper?
Ross: It's actually a $1,000,000 prize.
Phoebe: Go, Charlie! But, my point is, okay, so she dated them, but she also broke up with them.
Maybe she's looking to, you know, slam it with some average Joe Ph.D.
average Joe: an average or ordinary man 普通人
Ross: Yeah, maybe. And I do have my whole career in front of me. I mean, I could still win a Nobel Prize.

Phoebe: Okay, well, give her a chance to see all of that!

Ross: Stop going through my stuff!
Rachel: [to Monica] Hey!
Rachel: I just wanted to let you know I've changed my mind. I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna kiss Joey.
Monica: No, you can't! Friends hooking up is a bad idea.
Rachel: Please, what about you and Chandler?
Monica: That's different! I was drunk and stupid!
Rachel: Well, hello!
Monica: What about all the guys that you've got the phone numbers from? Why don't you just kiss one of
Rachel: I could, I could, but I don't want to! I want to kiss Joey!
Monica: Alright. I think it's a big mistake, but it's your decision.
Rachel: I'm gonna do it.
Monica: And I can't stop you?
Monica: Can I at least have the phone numbers?
[Rachel goes look for Joey. She sees him and Charlie kissing passionately.]
Ross: [to Rachel] Hey, Rach, have you seen Charlie anywhere? [Rachel just stands there staring at Joey
and Charlie in silence. After a while, Ross turns around and sees them.] I'm smarter than him!
[Scene: The Theater. Monica, Phoebe and Chandler are sitting in the first line.]
Phoebe: Hey, thank you so much for these tickets, Chandler.
Chandler: Oh, well, this was a really important experience for me, and I wanted to share it with you.
Monica: Oh, you're so wonderful.
Bitter Woman on Stage: Why don't you like me? Chapter One: my first period.
Chandler: Can't believe you guys bought that. Enjoy your slow death. [runs away].
