The One With Five Steaks and an Eggplant

Episode 2.05

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

Chandler gets calls from an intriguing woman (Jade) looking for someone named Bob. On the phone, he pretends to be Bob and arranges to meet her, so he can console her when "Bob" stands her up. Their relationship seems to be going very well, until she calls "Bob" back and complains of Chandler's sexual inadequacies. Chandler plans a big birthday hoopla for Ross, but the expense involved touches a nerve with Phoebe, Joey, and Rachel, who don't make as much money as the others. Monica, Chandler, and Ross celebrate his birthday by attending Hootie and the Blowfish in concert; they end up partying backstage afterwards with the band. Monica gets a new position as Head Lunch Chef, also in charge of purchasing, who has her own little desk (when Roland's not there), and a beeper. However, she is soon fired for accepting a gift from the restaurant's new meat supplier.

The one where they said....

Ross: Hey, Chandler, why is this woman leaving a message for you on my machine?
Chandler: Oh, see, I had to tell her that my number was your number, because I couldn't tell her that my number was my number, because she thinks that my number is Bob's number.
Ross: Hey, tell me again, what do I do when Mr. Roper calls?

Phoebe: No, uh uh, no way. I'm sorry, not gonna happen.
Chandler: Whoa, whoa, Prom night flashback.

Chandler: So, the Ebola virus--that's gotta suck, huh?

Phoebe: I'm just gonna pass on the concert, 'cause I'm just not in a very Hootie place right now.

Rachel: Who gave you that hickey?
Monica: That would be the work of a Blowfish.
