The One With Rachel's Date

Episode 8.05 - Dedicated to the memory of Richard L. Cox, Sr.

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

Phoebe starts dating Monica's new assistant chef (Tim). But when he doesn't work out either as a chef or a boyfriend, they fight over who's going to dump him first. Chandler (whose middle name turns out to be Muriel) blocks the promotion of Bob, who is under a 5-year mistaken notion that Chandler's name is Toby. Joey introduces Rachel to his Days of Our Lives co-star (Kash), and they go out on a date. This bothers Ross, who is concerned with whom his unborn child is spending time. Her date doesn't go well because Kash doesn't react well to news that she is pregnant. Ross helps her understand how great it will be to have a baby, and invites her to have a cup of coffee. She declines, so he goes to the coffee shop on his own. Rachel, realizing how great Ross is, changes her mind, but she reaches the coffee shop only in time to see Ross hook up with Mona (from Monica's wedding).

The one where they said....

Mr. Franklin: I've got a stack of documents on my desk this high.
Chandler: You know what you should do? Just toss them in the shredder and claim you never got them.
Mr. Franklin: That's a good one, Bing.
Chandler: What does a guy have to do to be taken seriously around here?

Monica: He is totally incompetent, okay? I called the chef who recommended him to me. He said, "Ha ha! Gotcha!"

Rachel: Hey, what do you think is the better excuse for why I'm not drinking on this date tonight? Um, I'm a recovering alcoholic; I'm a Mormon; or, I got so hammered last night, I'm still a little drunk.

Ross: How was the date?
Rachel: Well, I'm alone, and I just bought 15 dollars worth of candy bars. What do you think?

Rachel: I think I'm going to go home and eat ten candy bars.
Ross: Hey, I thought I cheered you up.
Rachel: Oh, you did. There are 20 in here.

Ross: Well, uh, would you be interested in seeing a Ukrainian film?
Mona: Ha, ha, ha! Oh, you're serious. Sure!
