Monica and Richard have a chance meeting in a video store and decide to see each other as friends--but it doesn't stop there. Phoebe dates Robert, a jock whose shorts are a little too revealing; Ross and Chandler don't know how to tell him. Joey and Rachel read each other's favorite books: The Shining and Little Women.
Richard: So, you wanna get a hamburger or something?
Monica: Oh, um, I don't know if that's a good idea.
Richard: Oh. Look, just friends? I won't grope you. I promise.
Monica: No, I just I think that it's too soon.
Richard: No, it's not too soon, I had lunch at a eleven.
Ross: What are you doing?
Chandler: Making chocolate milk. You want some?
Ross: No thanks, I'm 29.
Chandler: Well, she spent the last six months getting over him, and now she's celebrating that by going on a date with him.
Monica: It's not a date, okay? I'm just gonna teach him how to make a lasagna for some pot luck dinner he has.
Joey: Well, you might wanna make a little extra, because, ya know, you'll probably be hungry after the sex.
Monica: We're not gonna have sex! Okay, nothing's changed here. He still doesn't want children and I still do, so that's why we're gonna just be friends.
Ross: Naked friends.
Joey: Uh, now Rach? These, ah, these little women...
Joey: How little are they? I mean, are they, like, scary little?
Chandler: What do we do? What do we do?
Ross: I suppose we just try to not look directly at it.
Chandler: Like an eclipse!
Joey: Oh, yeah! Amy just burned Jo's manuscript. I don't see how he could ever forgive her.
Ross: Um, Jo's a girl, it's short for Josephine.
Joey: But Jo's got a crush on Laurie. Ohhh! You mean it's like a girl-girl thing? 'Cause that is the one thing missing from The Shining.
Ross: Calm down. There's no reason to get testy.
Joey: Oh! All blank and no blank makes blank a blank blank. Oh no-no, no! The end,
when Jack almost kills them all with that blank, but then at the last second
they get away.
Rachel: Joey! I can't believe you just did that!
Chandler: I can't believe she cracked your code!
Joey: Is that true? If I keep reading is Beth gonna die?
Chandler: No, Beth doesn't die. She doesn't die. Does she, Rachel?
Ross: Joey's asking if you've just ruined the first book he's ever loved that didn't star Jack Nicholson?
Phoebe: Umm, I think you're really, really great...
Robert: Oh God! Here we go again. Why does this keep happening to me? Is it something I'm putting out there? Is this my fault? Or am I just nuts?
Gunther: Hey buddy, this is a family place. Put the mouse back in the house.
Joey: Beth is really, really sick. Jo's there, but I don't think there's
anything she can do.
Rachel: You want to put the book in the freezer?
