The One After The Superbowl, part 1

Episode 2.12

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

A TV commercial featuring a Monkey reminds Ross of Marcel. Ross decides to visit Marcel at the San Diego Zoo, since he's going to a convention in Los Angeles. Once there, he is told by a zoo representative that Marcel has died; however, an eccentric zoo keeper tells him Marcel was stolen and put into show business. Ross' search leads him back to New York, where Marcel is filming Outbreak II: The Virus Takes Manhattan. Joey begins dating Erika, a stalker who thinks he's really his soap opera character, Dr. Drake Ramoray. Phoebe dates Rob, a guy who hires her to sing songs for children at the library. Her songs are a little too real for the kids' parents. She gets fired, but all the kids come to the coffee house so they can still hear her.

The one where they said....

Ross: I meant because the monkey in it reminds me of Marcel.
Phoebe: I can see that, 'cause they both have those big brown eyes and, you know, the little pouty chin.
Monica: And the fact that they're both monkeys.
Ross: Sometimes I wonder if I did the right thing. You know, giving him away.
Rachel: Oh, Ross, you had to. I mean he was humping everything in sight. I have a Malibu Barbie that will no longer be wearing white to her wedding.

Joey: Hey, hey, check it out. Guess what I got.
Chandler: Rhythm?

Joey: Okay, we'll just leave, and when we pass her on the stairs, she won't know it's me 'cause we've never met.
Chandler: That's how radio stars escape stalkers.

Lipson: I'm sorry Mr. Geller. But you know, there's an old saying: "Sometimes monkeys die." It's not a great saying, but it certainly is fitting today.

Phoebe (singing): Now, Grandma's a person who everyone likes,
She bought you a train and a bright, shiny bike.
But lately she hasn't been coming to dinner,
And last time you saw her she looked so much thinner.
Now, your mom and your dad said she moved to Peru,
But the truth is she died and some day you will too.

Phoebe (singing):There'll be times when you get older
When you'll want to sleep with people
Just to make them like you
But don't.
'Cause that's another thing
That you don't wanna do
That's another thing
That you don't wanna do.

Ross: Check it out, he actually is the Monkeyshine monkey.
Rachel: Well, so what're you gonna do?
Ross: Well, I guess I'm gonna call the beer company and try to find out where he is.
Chandler: That's what I did when I lost my Clydesdales.

Phoebe (singing): Oh, the cow in the meadow goes moo,
Oh, the cow in the meadow goes moo.
Then the farmer hits him on the head and grinds him up,
And that's how we get hamburgers.
Now, chickens!

Rachel: No, no, no, wait. I wanna see what happens.
Joey: Uh, I get Leslie out of the coma and then we make out.
Rachel: Well, how can that be? You were just kissing Sabrina.
Monica: Rachel, it's a world where Joey is a neurosurgeon.

Erika: Drake, what are you getting at?
Joey: I'm not Drake.
Ross: That's right, he's not Drake. He's Hans Ramoray, Drake's evil twin.

Phoebe (singing): Sometimes men love women
Sometimes men love men,
And then there are bisexuals
Though some just say they're kidding themselves.
