Chandler: All right I抣l have one. (he and Ross take another brownie,)
Ross: So what抯 a matter, you need a dentist? I抳e got a good one.
Phoebe: No thanks, I have a good one too. I just, I, I can抰 see him.
Chandler: See that is the problem with invisible dentists.
Ross: Why? Why can抰 you go to him?
Phoebe: Because, every time I go to the dentist, somebody dies.
Chandler: That is so weird, because every time I go to the dentist, I look down the hygienist抯 blouse.
Rachel: Phoebe, what? Umm...what?!
Phoebe: Yeah, yeah, first there was my aunt Mary, and then there was umm, John, my mailman, and then my, my cowboy friend 慉lbino Bob?
Rachel: And all these people actually died?
Phoebe: Yes, while I was in the chair! That抯 why I take such good care of my teeth now, y'know, it抯 not about oral hygiene, I floss to save lives!
Ross: Pheebs, come on, you didn抰 kill anybody, these people just happened to die when you went to the dentist. It抯, it抯, it抯 just ah, a coincidence.
Phoebe: Well tell that to them. Oh! You can抰, their dead.
[Scene: Central Perk, Ross, Rachel, and Phoebe are there.]
Ross: Thanks, Gunther. (takes the plate Gunther serves him and Rachel comes up and kisses him) (to Rachel) Hey! (to Gunther) Umm, can I get a napkin too?

Phoebe: All right, fine, fine, but if you抮e my next victim, don抰 come back as a poltergeist and like suck me into the TV set.
Rachel: I promise.
Phoebe: Although, don抰 feel like you can抰 visit.

Ross: What? (to Joey) So what are you going to do? I mean how, how are you going to tell Chandler?
Joey: Well, I was thinking about that and I, I think the best way would be, to not.
Rachel: Joey, you can抰 keep this to yourself, if you know about this, you have to tell him.
Joey: It抣l kill him. I mean it抣l, it抣l just kill him.
Phoebe: Well, you could wait 憈il I go to the dentist, maybe I抣l kill him.

Ross: Okay, I have a problem I have to go into work for a few hours, some kids messed up the Homo Sapien display.
Joey: What did they do?
Ross: Well, they painted over the word 慡apien?for one thing, then they rearranged the figures, let抯 just leave it at that.
Monica: So, do you want me to watch Ben for you?
Ross: Yes, that抯 what I was going to ask, thank you.

Joey: Hey-hey, Ross?
Joey: I抳e got a science question.

(Monica takes the bear, grabs his hat, and rips off his head.)
Monica and Rachel: Oh!!
Rachel: Oh, it抯 just like a bloodbath in here today.
[Scene: The street, Chandler and Joey are walking past a jewelery store.]

[Cut to later, all except Chandler are staring out the window at Ugly Naked Guy.]

Monica: All right, we should call somebody.
Ross: And tell them what? The naked guy we stare at all the time isn抰 moving.
Rachel: Well, we have gotta find out if he抯 alive.
Monica: How are we gonna do that? There抯 no way.
Joey: Well, there is one way. His window抯 open, I say, we poke him.
[Scene: Chandler and Joey's, Chandler is throwing darts, as Joey enters.]

Chandler: All right.
Joey: Hey uh, what抯 a matter?
Chandler: I talked to Janice.
Joey: Oh my God, is she going back to him?
Chandler: She doesn抰 know. Says she loves us both. Y'know I woke up this morning and I was in love, well I was happy. Y'know it serves me right for buying that twelve pack of condoms. And now I can抰 even return them, because she choked on the reciept!
Joey: What are you ah, what are you gonna do?
Chandler: I don抰 know, y'know. What, what, would you do?
Joey: Well, it doesn抰 matter what I would do.
Chandler: Come on, tell me.
Joey: All right, you抮e probably not gonna want to hear this but ah, if it was me, and this is just me, (Chandler gets ready to throw another dart) I would ah, I would bow out.
Chandler: What? (turns around quickly still ready to throw the dart and Joey quickly ducks and hides behind the chair) What are you, what are you talking about?
Joey: They have a kid together, y'know. They抮e like, they抮e like a family, and if, I don抰 know, there抯 chance they could make that work, I know I wouldn抰 want to be the guy who stood in the way of that. Are you okay? Do you wanna ah, come poke a nude guy?
[Scene: Monica and Rachel's, Ross has just finished putting Ben to sleep, and is entering from Rachel抯 room.]
Ross: Well, he抯 finally alseep. About that ah, bump on his head?
Rachel: Are you, are you, are you sure it抯 ah, a new bump? I mean, no offense, I抳e always thought of Ben as a fairly bumpy headed child.
Ross: It抯 okay if he bumps his head, kids bump their heads all the time, y'know, it was your first time babysitting, I figured you did the best you could.
Rachel: (confidently) I did!
Ross: I know! I抦 saying you have to watch them all the time.
Rachel: I did!! I watched! I watched! I watched Monica bang his head against that thing!
Ross: Monica did it?
(Monica runs into the kitchen from the terrace.)
Ross: Umm, did you notice anything wierd about Ben today?
Monica: No. Why?
Ross: Well, I was just playing with him, and y'know we were doing the alphabet song, which he used to be really good at, but suddenly he抯 leaving out 慹?and 慺.? It抯 like they just ah, I don抰 know, fell out of his head.
Ross: Oh, and also, he抯, he抯 walkin?kind of funny, his left leg is moving a lot faster than his right leg, and he抯 in there just sort of y'know... (walks around in a circle)
Monica: Oh my God, I wrecked your baby!! (runs into the bedroom)
Rachel: I hope it抯 still funny when you抮e in hell.
Monica: (coming out of the bedroom) You jerk! You know how much I love that kid! (starts to chase Ross around the living room)
Ross: Monica bang! Monica bang! (runs into one of the posts) Ow!
Rachel: I抣l get the hat.
[Scene: Central Perk, Chandler and Janice are there.]
Chandler: Janice, I have something I need to tell you, and I want you to let me get through it, because it抯, it抯, it抯 not gonna be easy.
Chandler: I think you should go back with Gary. I don抰 wanna be the guy that breaks up a family, y'know when my parents split up, it was because of that guy. Whenever I would see him I was always think y'know 慪ou抮e the reason, you are the reason why their not together.?and I hated that guy. And it didn抰 matter how nice he was, or how happy he made my Dad.
Chandler: Yeah, well. It抯 the right thing to do.
Janice: Oh! You抮e right. Oh God. But, before I can say 慻ood-bye? there抯 something I really need you to know, Chandler. The way I feel about you, it抯 like, I finally understand what Lionel Richie抯 been singing about. Y'know, I mean what we have, it抯 like movie love, you抮e my soulmate, and I can抰 believe we抮e not going to be spending the rest of our lives together.
Chandler: Then don抰 leave me!
Chandler: Forget what I said, I was babbling! Pick me!
Janice: No, you were right, you were right. I mean, I-I-I抳e got to give my marriage another chance.
Chandler: No you don抰! No, no, no, I say you have to give your divorce another chance.
Janice: (standing up) I抦 sorry. (hugs him)
Chandler: Ohhh. Don抰 go.
Janice: No, I-I-I gotta go. (she starts to walk away, but Chandler doesn抰 let her go.)
Chandler: No. No! No! No!
Janice: Honey, honey, people are looking.
Chandler: I don抰 care! (turns around and to the people watching them) I don抰 care!!
Janice: Yeah, um, I抦, I抦 leaving now. (tries to get her leg out of Chandler抯 grasp, she finally does, but Chandler takes off her shoe.)
Chandler: You can抰 leave! I have your shoe!
Janice: Good-bye Chandler Bing. (walks out with one shoe)
Gunther: Rachel has those in burgendy.
[Scene: Monica and Rachel's, Joey, Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, and Ross are holding the giant poking device.]
Joey: All right now remember, something this big and long is going to be difficult to manuver, fortunately I have a lot of experience in that area.
Ross: Can we please focus here, a naked man抯 life hangs in the balance!
Phoebe: I抦 telling you he抯 dead. What we are about to have here is a dead fat guy on a stick.
Joey: All right, ladies and gentlemen, let抯 poke. (they start to advance the giant poking device) Steady. Steady. Okay, a little higher. Careful of the angle. Okay, okay, we抮e approaching the window (as he says this the camera cuts to their view of Ugly Naked Guy, so that we actually see him!) Thread the needle. Thread the needle.
(They thread the needle and start poking him, he then stirs.)
Phoebe: He抯 alive! He抯 a-live!!!
Monica: And yet, we抮e still poking him.
Joey: Okay, retract the device, retract the device.
Ross: He does not look happy.
Rachel: Hey-hey, now he抯 showing us his poking device.
Joey: Hey, that抯 never gonna make it all the way over here, buddy!
