The one where they said....

Chandler: ...and this actor guy, who I'm not sure about, because when he called and I answered the phone, "Chandler Bing," he said, "Whoa, short message."

Ross: Yeah, you know how I have you guys? Well she doesn't have any close friends that are just hers. But, but last week she meet this woman at the gym--Susan something--and they really hit it off, and I think it's gonna make a difference.

Monica: Oh look, the pool table's free. Rack 'em up. I'll be back in just a minute. Get ready for me to whip your butt.
Chandler: Okay, but after that, we're shootin' some pool.

Monica: Where's your bed?
Phoebe: It's not in the apartment? Oh no. I can't believe this is happening again.

Chandler: Wow! Look at 'em run.

Ross: My marriage, I think my marriage is um, is kinda over.
Phoebe: Oh no! Why?
Ross: 'Cause Carol's a lesbian--and, and I'm not one. And apparently it's not a mix and match situation.

Phoebe: Hey, do you think that Susan person is her lover?
Ross: Well I do now!

Ross: Maybe this wouldn't have happened if I'd been more nurturing, or I'd paid more attention, or I'd... had a uterus.
