The One With Rachel's Inadvertent Kiss

Episode 5.17

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

Rachel has an interview at Ralph Lauren, where she mistakenly kisses the interviewer (Mr. Zelner). She gets called back for a second interview, where she again mistakes Mr. Zelner's actions and chews him out. Later, realizing her mistake, she meets with him again, straightens things out, and gets the job. Ross spends all his free time 'acting' in front of his window, thinking it entertains his friends. Joey tries to find a woman who keeps waving at him from Ross' building, but somehow keeps ending up at Ross' place instead. Monica obsesses about proving that she and Chandler are still a hot couple, like Phoebe and Gary. Chandler enjoys it for a while, but eventually helps Monica see that their relationship has progressed to a better level.

The one where they said....

Monica: I... I am serious. I mean, we're... we're all over each other all the time.
Phoebe: Okay, well, you know where you are better than I do. I was just curious.
Monica: Why don't you just calm down, Phoebe! All right? Why don't you just get all your facts before you run around telling everybody that, you know, you're the only hot couple!
Phoebe: God, I woke the beast.

Monica: So we've got to go upstairs and have a lot of sex and prove them wrong!
Chandler: Monica, you have got to stop this competitive thing! Okay? It's crazy. I mean, just to impress Gary and Phoebe we have to go upstairs and have sex over and over, and I'm saying no to this, why? Get your coat.

Joey: Yeah, yeah, that's her. But you know what? It doesn't matter, I'm never gonna get to meet her anyway.
Monica: Why?
Joey: Because it's impossible to find her apartment! She lives in, like, some hot-girl parallel-universe or something.

Chandler: You know what I just realized? You just freaked out about our relationship.
Monica: Did not.
Chandler: Yes you did! Admit it! You freaked out!
Monica: Okay, I freaked out a little.
Chandler: A little? You freaked out big time! Okay? And I fixed it! We have switched places! I am the relationship and king, and you are the crazy, irrational screw up! Woo hoo hoo! ...And now we're back.
