The One With The Thumb

Episode 1.03

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

Ross discovers the fate of his childhood pet, Chichi. Chandler starts smoking again; when the group complains, he diverts their attention to their own faults. Phoebe gets money she doesn't want; she complains and gets more; she gives it away and gets a can of soda in return... which contains a thumb. The beverage company gives her $7000. Monica's new boyfriend (Alan) is a hit with her friends, but Monica's not too sure.

The one where they said....

Monica: Uh, No. Loosely translated, "we should do this again," means "you will NEVER see me naked."
Phoebe: Or, or, you know, "I think we should see other people," means, "Ha ha, I already am."

Chandler: What are you talking about? We loved Shteve. Shteve was shecshy.

Phoebe: Do you believe this? Now I have $1000, and a football phone!
Rachel: What bank is this?

Alan: I've heard sho much about all you guysh.

Phoebe: Yes! Like that man in the shoe!
Ross: What shoe?
Phoebe: From the nursery rhyme: There was a crooked man, who had a crooked smile, who lived in a shoe... for a while.

Chandler: I personally could have a gallon of Alan.

Ross: A thumb?
Phoebe: I know. I know. I opened it up, and there is was, just floating in there, like this tiny little hitch-hiker.
Chandler: Maybe it's a contest, you know, like, "collect all five."

Rachel: Oh! the hair comes out, and the gloves come off.

Chandler: Ew, Lambchop. How old is that sock? If I had a sock on my hand for thirty years, it'd be talking, too.

Ross: Okay, I think it's time to change somebody's nicotine patch.

Monica: Where's Joey?
Chandler: Joey ate my last stick of gum, so I killed him. Do you think that was wrong?

Phoebe: You know, those stupid soda people gave me $7000 for the thumb. And on my way over here, I stepped in gum. What is up with the universe?

Joey: What's going on?
Monica: Nothing, I just think it's nice when we're all here together.
Joey: Even nicer, when everyone gets to wear their underwear.

Monica: Guys, we have to talk.
Phoebe: Wait. I'm getting a deja vu. No, I'm not.
Monica: Alright. We have to talk.
Phoebe: There it is!

Rachel: Remember when we went to Central Park and rented boats? That was fun.
Ross (regarding Alan): Yeah. He could row like a viking.
