The One Where Joey Tells Rachel

Episode 8.16

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

Ross comes to grips with the knowledge that Joey is falling in love with Rachel. Phoebe meets a guy who she thinks is "Monica's other half," and she introduces them, much to Chandler's dismay. They get along great, and they both really like cheese. Joey takes Rachel out to dinner and tells her he's falling in love with her; Rachel can't return his feelings.

The one where they said....

Joey: It's not a big deal.
Ross: It's not a big deal? Oh, I'm sorry, I just... um... what about all the stuff you just said? I mean, how about like you can't stop thinking about her? Like how you can't sleep?
Joey: I'm an actor, ya know? As a group, we tend to be over-dramatic.

Rachel: Ah, that's so sad, they never had a chance to meet.
Chandler: Luckily the guy she settled for can't hear what you're talking about.

Ross: Joey and Rachel? I mean, it's like you and me going out, only weirder!
Monica: All right, I know you're hurting, and I want to be supportive, but don't say that again.

Monica (about Joey): It's completely freaking him out. He's talking about moving to Vermont.
Ross: Why?
Monica: He says he wants to leave the country.

Joey: You want to come in for a beer or something?
Ross: Uh... uh, sure.
Joey: You, uh... you got any beer?
