The One Where Eddie Won't Go

Episode 2.19

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

Chandler wakes in the night to find Eddie watching him sleep; they argue and Eddie agrees to leave. The next day, Eddie goes on a fruit drying kick and has no recollection of their previous conversation. Variations of this happened day after day. Joey's pride won't let him try out for small roles, but his mounting debts (and Ross) slowly convince him otherwise. Joey makes good use of his "Word of the Day" toilet paper. Monica, Rachel, and Phoebe read a female empowerment book, Be Your Own Windkeeper, which has even more detrimental effects on their relationships with each other than it does on their relationships with men. Joey moves back in with Chandler, which allows Chandler to take advantage of Eddie's faulty memory, and finally be rid of him.

The one where they said....

Eddie: See, now I don't think you're being fair. I mean, one night you see me and you get scared. I mean, what about all the other nights when you don't see me, huh? What about last night when you went and got a drink of water and I was nice enough to hide behind the door, what's that about, huh?

Rachel: This is like reading about my own life. I mean, this book could have been called Be Your Own Windkeeper, Rachel.
Phoebe: I don't think it would have sold a million copies, but it would have made a nice gift for you.

Rachel: Why do we always have to do everything according to your time table?
Ross: Actually, it's the movie theatre that has the time schedule. So you don't miss the beginning.
Rachel: No, see this isn't about the movie theatre. This is about you stealing my wind.
Monica: You go girl! I can't pull that off, can I?
Ross: Excuse me? Your... your... your wind?
Rachel: Yes, my wind. How do you expect me to grow if you won't let me blow?
Ross: You... you know I... I don't have a... have a problem with that.

Ross: What... what's that?
Joey: It's my VISA bill. "Envelope one of two." That can't be good.

Joey: I fell down an elevator shaft.
Gunther: That sucks. I was buried in an avalanche.
Joey: What?
Gunther: I used to be "Bryce" on All My Children.

Eddie: Hey, man, check it out. I got some great stuff to dehydrate here. I got some grapes, I got some apricots... I thought it would be really cool to see what happens with these water balloons.

Eddie: Why doesn't my key work and what's all my stuff doing downstairs?
Chandler: Well, I'm... I'm sorry. Uh, have we met?
Eddie: It's Eddie, you freak. Your roommate.
Chandler: I... I'm sorry, I, uh, I already have a roommate.
Joey: Hello.
Chandler: Yeah, he's lived here for years, I don't... I don't know what you're talking about, man.
Eddie: No, he... he moved out and I moved in.
Chandler: Well, I... I think we'd remember something like that.
Joey: I know I would.
Eddie: Well, that's, uh... that's a good point. Um, okay, well, uh, I guess I got the wrong apartment then. I... I'm... look, I'm, you know, I'm sorry, I'm terribly sorry.

Joey: A little foos?
Chandler: Absolutely.
Joey: What happened to the foosball?
Chandler: Uh, that's a cantelope.

Joey: Well, I had a whole ceramic zoo thing going over there. But now, without the other ones, it just looks tacky.
Chandler: So is he housetrained, or is he gonna leave little bathroom tiles all over the place? Stay! Good... Stay! Good fake dog.
