The One Where Estelle Dies

Episode 10.15

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

Ross visits Rachel's old boss at Ralph Lauren to try to get her job back, so she won't have to go to Paris. She decides to stay, but Ross realizes how important Paris is to her, and tells her to go. When the house next to their's goes up for sale, Chandler and Monica check it out and are disturbed to find Janice as their potential new neighbor. Chandler pretends he's still in love with her so she'll think it's a mistake to move there. Joey's agent (Estelle) dies, but the gang doesn't want to tell him, because he's already upset about all the other changes going on. Phoebe calls him pretending to be Estelle, and Joey fires her. Later, he finds out she's dead, but Phoebe calls again, leaving Joey freaked out.

The one where they said....

Phoebe: Listen, just promise me that you'll wait a minute before you call Estelle.
Joey: Okay. Why?
Phoebe (improvising): Because... a promise between friends means never having to give a reason.
Joey: Ah, I love that sayin'.

Chandler: I feel like we're cheating on our house. And if we're going to cheat, shouldn't it be with a hot, younger house that does stuff that our house won't do?

Joey: I'm gonna call her and hire her again.
Phoebe: No, no, don't call her. You wait for her to call you.
Joey: Why?
Phoebe (improvising): Because... patience is the road to understanding. Which is the key to a happy heart.
Joey: You blow me away.
Phoebe: So promise you're gonna wait for her to call you?
Joey: I promise. And that means never having to give a reason.

Ross: What if you could give your son this genuine pterodactyl egg (replica)?
Mr. Zelner: Wow, that's pretty cool.
Ross: Yeah? So? Do we have a deal?
Mr. Zelner: Okay, you got it!
Ross: Yes! Yes!
Mr. Zelner: This is going to make me very popular.
Ross: Oh, believe me, the ladies -- they love it.
Mr. Zelner: I meant with my son.
Ross: Good, because the ladies? Not so much.
