The One With Phoebe's Ex-Partner

Episode 3.14

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

Phoebe's former singing partner (Leslie) performs at Central Perk and asks Phoebe if they can get back together. They eventually do, but soon have problems when Leslie sells "Smelly Cat" to a kitty litter company. Chandler meets a woman (Ginger) in the men's room and asks her out; coincidentally, Joey used to date her-- until an unfortunate incident occurred, involving her artificial leg. Chandler gets over the fact that she has an artificial leg, but when Ginger learns he has a third nipple, she dumps him. Ross continues to struggle with Rachel's career and her involvement with Mark. Chandler has his third nipple removed.

The one where they said....

Chandler: I like her.
Phoebe: Why? Because she can sing and play guitar, and do both at the same time?
Chandler: Well, that's pretty much all I'm looking for from these people.

Leslie: Okay, my next song's called, "Phoebe Buffay, What Can I Say? I Really Loved When We Were Singing Partners, And I Shouldn'ta Left You That Way."
Phoebe: Oh no, one of those look-for-the-hidden-meaning songs.

Leslie (to Phoebe): I ran into Vlad at the place where they sell the big fish, and he said you played here a lot, so...
Chandler (to Ross): Alright, listen. I have to go to the bathroom, but if the place with the big fish comes up again, I'd like know whether that's several big fish or just one big fish.

Gunther: Someone in there?
Chandler: No, this is just part of a dare devil game that I play called, "wait until the last moment before I burst and die."

Phoebe: Well, yeah. Ya know, we were best friends, ever since we were little, our Moms worked on the barge together.
Monica: Oh, you two must have been so cute running around on a barge.
Phoebe: You never run on a barge!

Joey: Okay, it was like four years ago, okay? Ginger and I had gone out a few times, and then this one weekend we went up to her Dad's cabin. Just me, her, and her annoying little dog Pepper. Well that night, I cooked this really romantic dinner...
Monica: You gave her food poisoning!
Joey: I wish! No. After dinner, me, her, and Pepper all fell asleep in front of the fire. Well, I woke up in the middle of the night and I saw that the fire was dying out, so I picked up a log and threw it on. Or, at least what I thought was a log.
Phoebe: Oh my God! You threw Pepper on the fire!
Joey: I wish. See, I guess another thing I probably should've told you about Ginger is that she kinda has an, ah, artificial leg.

Ross: Hey, I have clothes. I even pick them out. I mean, for all you know, I could be a fashion... monger.

Leslie (singing): My favorite shoes, so good to me, I wear them everyday. Down at the heel, holes in the toes, don't care what people say. My feet's best friends, pals to the end, with them I'm one hot chicky. Though late one night, not much light, I...
Phoebe: I stepped in something icky.
Phoebe and Leslie: Sticky shoes, sticky shoes, always make me smile. Sticky shoes, sticky shoes, next time I'll avoid the pile.

Monica: Oh, can I borrow this? My milk's gone bad.
Chandler: Oh, I hate that. I once had a thing of half and half--stole my car.

Ross: Come on! Forty-five minutes! Forty-five minutes the man talked about strappy backed dresses!
Rachel: Well, okay, how about four hours in a freezing museum auditorium listening to Professor Pitstains and his "Hey everybody! Remember that thing that's been dead for a gazillion years? Well here's this little bone we didn't know it had!"

Ross: Ya know what? 100 million people went to see a movie about what I do. I wonder how many people would go see a movie called Jurassic Parka.

Phoebe (singing): Jingle Bitch screwed me over! Go to hell Jingle Whore! Go to hell, go to hell, go to hell-hell-hell. That's all I have so far.

Chandler: Just had me a little nubbinectomy. Yep! Two nipples, no waiting.
Monica: Wow. Just like Rachel in High School.
Rachel: What?
Monica: Come on! Come on, I was kidding! It was such an obvious joke!
Chandler: That was an obvious joke; and I didn't think of it. Why didn't I think of it? The source of all my powers! Oh dear God, what have I done!
