The One With Chandler's Work Laugh

Episode 5.12

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

Rachel tries to learn more about Chandler and Monica's relationship; when Rachel confronts her, Monica makes up some pretty lame lies to cover it up. Ross finds out Emily is engaged to be married again; he goes out on the town and somehow hooks up with Janice. Their relationship starts out great, but soon Janice can't stand Ross's constant whining and she breaks it off. Chandler takes Monica to a work party, as well as some outings with Chandler's boss and his wife; Monica learns that 'Work Chandler' is a suck-up with an exaggerated laugh. Phoebe and Joey race birds.

The one where they said....

Chandler: Hey! Everybody at work loved you last night!
Monica: Really?
Chandler: And they like me more just because I was with ya! I think you repaired a lot of the damage from when they met Joey. And Doug wants us to play tennis with them. He's never even talked to me outside of work. Except for that time when we bumped into each other at that strip club... strip church.

Janice: Oh... oh... okay. I know what you all are thinking. But Chandler is in Yemen! I'm a young woman, I have needs! I can't wait forever!

Ross: Okay, look, I... I know what you guys are going to say.
Phoebe: You two would have very hairy children.
Ross: Okay, I didn't know you would say that.

Phoebe: So are you actually gonna see her again?
Joey: Phoebe! Don't put ideas in his head!
Ross: I am gonna see her again.
Joey: Damn it, Phoebe!

Janice: You're a very sweet person Ross. Um, unfortunately I don't think I can take another second of you whining!
Ross: Let me make sure I'm hearing this right. You... you're ending this with me because I'm too whiney? So you're saying I've become so whiney that I annoy you--Janice.
Janice: Well, yeah.
Ross: OH... MY... GOD!

Janice: Well, I guess that's two out of three... Joey. Hahahahahahahaha.
