The One With The Pediatrician

Episode 9.03

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

Chandler and Monica announce their plans to move to Oklahoma. Monica contacts a restaurant head-hunter to see if there's a chef position in Tulsa, and ends up getting a great offer for a position in New York. She decides to take it, so Chandler arranges to spend just 4 days a week in Tulsa. Joey can't get over the fact that Emma's pediatrician is named Dr. Weiner. Phoebe and Joey agree to set each up with dates; Joey forgets, but lies that he's set her up with someone named Mike; then he has to find someone to fit the bill. Phoebe finds out the truth and leaves, but later Mike finds her at the coffee house and they arrange to go out again. Rachel abuses Emma's pediatrician too much, so she has to find a new one; she goes to Ross's old pediatrician (Dr. Gettleman) only to discover that "Rossy" still goes there, as well.

The one where they said....

Joey: I can't believe you guys are moving.
Phoebe: I call their apartment!
Ross, Joey, and Rachel: No!

Rachel: I wonder why Ross said he died.
Monica: Oh, maybe he was getting him confused with his childhood therapist.
Chandler: He saw a therapist?
Monica: Um hmm. Yeah, he used to have this recurring nightmare. It really freaked him out.
Rachel: Wow, what was it?
Monica: That I was going to eat him.

Joey: All you gotta do is pretend to be Mike.
Mike: I am Mike.
Joey: Atta boy!

Mary Ellen [to Joey]: Wow, you're a lot nicer on Days of Our Lives.
Mike: Days of Our Lives! That's why you look so familiar!
Phoebe: What?
Mike: What?
Joey: What?
Phoebe: Do you not know each other?
Joey [laughing]: Of course we do! Mike is playing a game that we used to play in high school! Yeah, were we pretend we don't know each other. We played all kinds of games. Hey, remember the one where I punch you for not being cool?

Chandler: I think you should take the job.
Monica: Really?
Chandler: Yeah, I know it must be important to you when you start chattering like a monkey.
Monica: That's the nicest thing anyone's ever said to me.
