Phoebe: A stripper at a bachelor party, that is so cliché. Why don't you guys get a magician?
Chandler: Well, if the magician can open my beer with his butt cheeks, then alright.
Ross: What am I gonna do?
Chandler: Don't do anything. Keep it inside. Learn how to hide your feelings! Don't cry outloud.
Ross: Ohhhhh yeah, that's, that's funny. Why, uh, why isn't he goofin' around in his own office?
Rachel: Honey, this is his office too. I told you, we're Joanna's two assistants.
Ross: Why does Joanna need two assistants? Uh, how, how lazy is she?
Chandler: Hello? Hi! Yeah listen, I--I'm in need of a stripper, and I was told that you do that. [listens] Let me ask you this, what, what do you do for the extra hundred? [listens] So, would I, would I have to provide the grapes?
Joey: And before you know it, she's with him. And you'll be all, "oh, man!" And he'll be all, "yes!" And us, we'll be like, "awww, dude!" And pretty soon you'll be like, "hhiii," and, and, and, "I can't go, Rachel and Mark might be there." And we'll be like, "Man get over it, it's been four years!"
Ross (to Rachel): Well, I was with Carol for, like, eight years and I lost her.
And now if it's possible I think I love you even more. So, it's hard for me
to believe I'm not gonna... well that someone else isn't going to take you away.
Gunther: Let it be me! Let it be me!
Rachel: Where ya going?
Ross: Oh, I've got to go pick up Ben. We've got a play date this afternoon.
Rachel: Oh? With who?
Ross: Oh, just this woman that I met last night at the party.
Rachel: There was a woman at the... The stripper?
Rachel: You have a play date with a stripper?
Chandler: Man, I gotta get a kid.
Rachel: Well, there's a kiss he won't forget for a few hours, ya know.
Chandler: Yeah. Either that or you just turned him on and sent him off to a stripper.
