The One Where Ross Meets Elizabeth's Dad

Episode 6.21

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

Joey doesn't get along well with the roboticist (Wayne) who controls his co-star, "C.H.E.E.S.E." To save himself from being fired, he teaches Wayne how to talk with women. Phoebe writes a book about relationships, which is really a book about Monica and Chandler, and everything they do. Ross meets Elizabeth's dad (Paul), who really doesn't approve of his daughter dating an older man. Paul and Rachel start dating. The gang's attempts to make Ross look good for Paul continually backfire.

The one where they said....

Joey: Am I psyched? The lead in my own TV series? I've dreamed about this for years! Why have I not been preparing?

Ross: I just found out that Elizabeth's dad wants to meet me.
Chandler: Wait a minute, hold the phone! You're not Elizabeth's dad?

Monica (to Paul): You know, it is so strange seeing Ross here this time of day, 'cause usually he's at the children's hospital.
Phoebe: Yeah. Not looking for dates.

Estelle: Joe! I'm glad I found ya, I got an audition for ya!
Joey: Wow!
Estelle: The thing is it's kinda on the Q.T. The actor who has the part doesn't know he might be fired. It's the lead in a series, Mac and C.H.E.E.S.E.
Joey: I'm the lead in Mac and C.H.E.E.S.E.!
Estelle: Uh-oh!

Rachel: Well, you know, he lost his keys so he was looking for them...
Ross: In your mouth?

Rachel: So it seemed that my prom date had stood me up, so Ross selflessly offered to take me.
Elizabeth: What a nice story!
Paul: So Ross was in college and decided to jump at the chance to take a young girl to her high school prom.
Rachel: Wow! I definitely did not see that one backfiring! I'm gonna go to the bathroom.

Wayne: Joey, Joey, I... I'll get you your job back if you help me out.
Joey: Why should I help you?
Chandler: The reason he just said.
Joey: What do you need?
Wayne: I... I... I saw you on stage talking to that beautiful woman, you know, Sarah?
Joey: Yeah?
Wayne: I wish I could talk to her.
Joey: What are you in love with her or something?
Wayne: Yeah. Her. All of them. Anyone.
Chandler: Yeah, I've been there my friend.

Paul: Then we agree?
Ross: Uh, yeah, I guess. Yeah! I guess so.
Paul: Neither of us like Ross!
Elizabeth: I like Ross.
Ross: Oh! Kids!
Rachel: Wait, wait, wait, I just thought of another story about how nice Ross is!
Ross: That's okay Rach, we're not liking Ross right now.
Rachel: Oh! I've got a lot of those too!
