in blue. In the uncut version of the pilot Barry's

episodes, it's Farber.
The one where they said....
- Phoebe (to Monica): Wait! Does he eat chalk? Just 'cause I don't want her to go through what I went through with Carl.
- Chandler: ...and I realize, there's a phone..... there.
- Chandler: ...and it turns out it's my mother, which is very strange because... she NEVER calls.
- Ross (to Phoebe): Nuh-uh, no, no, don't. Stop cleansing my aura!
