The One Where Rachel's Sister Baby-sits

Episode 10.05

[Previous][Next][Back to the Master List]

Monica and Chandler ask Rachel to write a letter of recommendation to their adoption agency; Joey feels left out because they didn't ask him, so they do. After a botched attempt to write a good letter, he does a re-write and drops it off without showing it to them first. The adoption agency thinks it's wonderful that they had a "child" write their recommendation. Phoebe unknowingly ridicules every idea Mike has for proposing to her. He finally does it the right way - he gets down on one knee and opens his heart. On Rachel's advice, her sister, Amy, breaks up with her fiance (whom she doesn't love), and temporarily moves in with Rachel. Rachel wants to help Amy be a better, more responsible person, so when Emma's nanny gets sick, Rachel decides to let her take care of Emma for the day. Emma ends up with pierced ears, and Rachel realizes Amy is beyond help.

The one where they said....

Amy: And you are?
Ross: Ross.
[no recognition from Amy]
Ross: I, uh... I grew up on your block.
Amy (still no clue): Hm.
Ross: We had Thanksgiving together last year.
[still nothing]
Ross: I had a baby with your sister.
Amy: No.... Did I buy a falafel from you yesterday?
Ross [giving up]: ...Yes, yes you did.

Monica: It doesn't make any sense.
Joey: Of course it does. It's smart! I used a thesaurus!
Chandler: On every word?
Joey: Yep.
Monica: All right, what was this sentance, originally?
Joey: Oh. "They're warm, nice people with big hearts."
Chandler: And that became, "They're humid, pre-possessing homosapiens with full-sized aortic pumps?"

Ross: Did Molly say what she had? Because my throat's been hurting.
Rachel: Menstrual cramps.
Ross: I don't think that's what this is.

Amy: I got you a present for letting me stay with you. Ready?
Rachel: Yes.
Amy: Ta-da!
Rachel: You pierced her ears?
Amy: Doesn't it make her nose look smaller?

Amy: This kid needs me, okay? She needs to have a cool, fun aunt!
Monica: I'm a cool, fun aunt!
Amy: Okay....

Ross: Amy, I just.. I just wanna...
Amy: What? What are you gonna do?
Ross: No more falafel for you!
