Episode 8.20

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

Joey, preparing to audition for a new game show, gets help rehearsing from Ross and Chandler. The complex rules are confusing at first, but after a while the guys really take a liking to it. Monica and Phoebe throw Rachel a baby shower, but forget to invite her mother until the last minute. Mrs. Green offers to live with Rachel and Ross for a couple months, to help with the baby. Rachel becomes convinced that it is necessary, but Ross doesn't share her feelings. When Joey finally goes for his audition, he learns that the game show has been simplied to a basic question and answer format.

The one where they said....

Mrs. Green: Rachel, you must get a nanny. You don't know how overwhelming this is going to be. I mean, when you were a baby, I had full-time help. I had Mrs. Kaye.
Rachel: Mrs. Kaye! Oh, she was sweet. She taught me spanish. I actually think I remember some of it. "Tu madre es loca."
Mrs. Green: Such a sweet woman.

Katherine: It's a diaper genie.
Rachel: Oh, it dispenses clean diapers!
Katherine: No, it's where you put the dirty ones!
Rachel: Well, that's gross. Why don't you just take it outside and throw it in a dumpster?
Mrs. Green: Well, are you going to do that ten times a day?
Rachel: It goes ten times a day? What are we feeding this baby, Indian food?

Joey: Whoa, what's complicated? You spin the Wheel of Mayhem to go up the Ladder of Chance; you go past the Mud Hut; through the Rainbow Ring to get to the Golden Monkey; you yank his tail, and BOOM you're in paradise pond!
Ray: Yeah, all that's gone. Um, it's basically just a simple question and answer game now.
Joey: Well, what's fun about that? You expect me to be a host of a boring game that's just people standing around answering questions?
Ray: Well, there'll be women in bikinis holding up the scores.
Joey: Let's play Bamboozled!
