The One With The Home Study

Episode 10.07

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

Phoebe and Mike, stunned by the expenses involved with a wedding, decide they'll get married in City Hall and give the money to charity. Once they donate it, Phoebe changes her mind and they ask for it back. But Phoebe is still unsure. The adoption agency sends a woman (Laura) to evaluate Chandler and Monica and their home. They want everything to go perfectly, so when it turns out that Laura had a bad dating experience with Joey, they pretend not to know him. Joey manages to turn the situation around and make Laura think she wronged him. Rachel freaks out when Ross wants to take Emma to the playground, due to her childhood hair-related playgound accident. Ross convinces her it will be okay, so they all go together. Ross gets kicked in the head by a kid on the swings.

The one where they said....

Rachel: Listen, I heard about you and Charlie. I'm really sorry.
Ross: Oh, that's okay. I'm sure there are tons of other beautiful palentologists out there.
Rachel: Absolutely.
Ross: There was one! She's it! All the rest look like they should live under a bridge!

Rachel: I was four years old, and I was on the swing, and then all of a sudden my hair got tangled... in the chain. And to get me out, my mom had to cut a big chunk of my hair, and it was uneven for weeks!
Ross: And you made it through that? I wonder whose going to play you in the movie!
Rachel: Okay, fine, you can make fun of me. I do not want Emma going there. And I was thinking Claire Danes.

Rachel: Ross, those things go like 40 miles an hour! Okay, and there's that moment at the top when you just don't know if you're going to return back to earth!
Ross: Space is filled with orbiting children.

Laura: I'm pretty sure I gave you my number.
Joey: Really? Think about it. You're a beautify woman. Smart. Funny. We had a really good time, huh? If I had your number, why wouldn't I call you?
Laura: I don't know. Well maybe I'm wrong. I'm sorry.
Joey: Whoa, no, it's too late for apologies. You broke my heart! Do you know how many women I had to sleep with to get over you.
[Joey turns to leave.]
Laura: Joey, wait!
Joey: No! I waited a long time, I can't wait anymore!
