Janine gets highered to dance at the pre-taping of Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve; she invites Joey, Monica, and Ross to come along. This is a dream come true for Ross and Monica, but they have a hard time getting on camera, because they aren't as good as they think they are. Joey hopes to kiss Janine at "fake midnight." Rachel and Phoebe convince Chandler to help them search for the Christmas presents Monica is giving them.
Janine: Well actually they're taping tomorrow. I don't really understand why.
Ross: Oh, well, you see, how it works is: The part with Dick Clark in Times Square is actually live, but they tape some of the party stuff ahead of time. Yeah, not a lot of people know that.
Janine: Yeah, well, do you guys wanna come too?
Ross: Are you serious?
Monica: We are there!
Chandler: What? What are you laughing at?
Rachel: Well, I used to date him, but you're still going out with her!
Rachel: Well, that's a lot better than Ross trying to kiss me in High School, and saying that he did it because he needed chapstick.
Rachel: Chandler, that's not enough. I mean, what if she gets you a great present, two medium presents,
and a bunch of little presents? And you've just gotten her one great present? I mean, that's just gonna make
her feel bad. Why would you do that to her Chandler? Why? Why?
Chandler: If I help, we can find them faster!
Ross: Hey, when the snippy guy sees The Routine, he'll wanna build us our own platform!
Monica: Was it really that good?
Ross: We got honorable mention in the Brother-Sister Dance category!
