The One With The Lottery

Episode 9.18

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

Everyone decides to pool some money and buy lottery tickets, except Ross, the lottery skeptic. Rachel and Ross, expecting Emma to start talking soon, eliminate offensive words from their conversation and start calling each other "Mommy" and "Daddy." Chandler waits for news about whether his internship will turn into a permanent assistant's position. The open positions get filled and he's depressed about not getting chosen, until he learns that he's being offered a better position - Junior Copywriter. Phoebe, frightened by a pigeon, accidentally drops the lottery tickets off the balcony, and half are lost. But they still win... three dollars.

The one where they said....

Monica: Who wants to do it?
Phoebe: Oh, can I? Vegetarians never get to do the wishbone. It's really not fair, either. Just because we don't eat the meat doesn't mean we don't like to play with the carcasses.

Ross: If we're going to do that, we should probably call me Daddy, too.
Phoebe: Hm. I like that, Daddy.
Ross: I, uh, I was just talking about Rachel.
Phoebe: Oh, is Daddy getting angry? Is Daddy going to spank me?
Ross: Well, that depends. Have you been a bad g.... No, I can't.
