31Joey(to Ross) Hey! Here's the birthday boy! Ross, check it out: hockey tickets, Rangers-Penguins, tonight at the Garden, and we're taking you.
32ChandlerHappy birthday, pal!
33JoeyWe love you, man. (Kisses Ross)
34RossFunny, my birthday was seven months ago.
36RossSo, I'm guessing you had an extra ticket and couldn't decide which one of you got to bring a date?
37ChandlerWell, aren't we Mr. "The glass is half empty."
38RossOh my God, oh- is today the twentieth, October twentieth?
Nitpick: In Episode E104/L31-38: , line(s) 104, it's October 20th and Ross tells Joey and Chandler his birthday was "7 months ago" (putting his birthday in March), but in Episode E902/L197-200: , line(s) 902, Ross says his birthday is October 18th. So Joey and Chandler's gift really WAS appropriate. In Episode E405/L11-13: , line(s) 405, Ross starts to tell Gunther his birthday's in December. No wonder Joey doesn't know when Ross' birthday is -- it apparentally keeps changing!
Episode 902, Lines 197-200
197JoeyIt’s pretty, Okay date of birth?
198RossYou know my birthday.
199JoeySure, May...tember.
200RossOctober 18th.
Episode 405, Lines 11-13
11GuntherOh, I-I'm just making a list of people's birthdays.
12RossOh, mine's December...
13GuntherYeah, whatever. (Walks away)
39MonicaOh, I was hoping you wouldn't remember.
41JoeyWhat's wrong with the twentieth?
42ChandlerEleven days before Halloween.. all the good costumes are gone?
43RossToday's the day Carol and I first.. consummated our physical relationship. (Joey is puzzled.) Sex. ..You know what, I-I'd better pass on the game. I think I'm just gonna go home and think about my ex-wife and her lesbian lover.
Not a nitpick: In Episode E105/L183: , line(s) 105, Monica says she doesn't know when Ross lost his virginity. In Episode E104/L38-43: , line(s) 104, Monica knows when Ross first slept with Carol, who we later find out (Episode E104/L217-221: , line(s) 104) was his first and only. However, Monica only knew when Ross first slept with Carol; she didn't realize Ross was a virgin prior to Carol, so this isn't an error.
Episode 105, Lines 183-183
183MonicaWow. My brother never even told me when he lost his virginity.
Episode 104, Lines 217-221
217RossMy first time with Carol was... (He mumbles the last part)
219RossIt was my first time.
220JoeyWith Carol? (Ross gives him a look.) Oh.
221ChandlerSo in your whole life, you've only been with one—(He gets a look too)—oh.
56RachelGod, isn't this exciting? I earned this. I wiped tables for it, I steamed milk for it, and it was totally—(opens envelope)—not worth it. Who's FICA? Why's he getting all my money? I mean, what- Chandler, look at that.
Observation: There's a McDonald's commercial with a line very similar to Episode E104/L56: , line(s) 104, but I don't know which came first.
170MonicaDo you have a plan?
171PhoebeI don't even have a 'pl'.
Observation: Phoebe has no life plan in Episode E104/L170-171: , line(s) 104, but does in Episode E309/L80-81: , line(s) 309. (then again, 2 years is enough time to come up with a plan)
Episode 309, Lines 80-81
80MonicaPhoebe, I thought you said you know what you’re doing?
81PhoebeI thought you meant in life.
217RossMy first time with Carol was... (He mumbles the last part)
219RossIt was my first time.
220JoeyWith Carol? (Ross gives him a look.) Oh.
221ChandlerSo in your whole life, you've only been with one—(He gets a look too)—oh.
Nitpick: In Episode E104/L217-221: , line(s) 104, Ross says he's only been with Carol, and Chandler doesn't correct him. But in Episode E704/L218-219: , line(s) 704, Chandlers says Ross slept with the lady who cleaned their dorms. This isn't a nitpick for Ross, since, until Episode 704, he thought Chandler had slept w/ the dorm-cleaning lady.
Episode 704, Lines 218-219
218RossOhh! Ohh! In college, Chandler got drunk and slept with the lady who cleaned our dorm!
219ChandlerThat was you!
224MonicaOkay. Okay, I got one. Do you remember that vegetarian pate that I made that you loved so much?
226MonicaWell, unless goose is a vegetable...ha haaaah!
Nitpick: In Episode E907/L173-175: , line(s) 907, meat makes Phoebe ill, but she's eaten meat before: Episode E416/L169-176: , line(s) 416, Episode E104/L224-226: , line(s) 104 (unknowingly), and Episode E204/L21-24: , line(s) 204. (maybe it's just veal?)
Episode 907, Lines 173-175
173PhoebeOh no, no, no, no... That's okay, that's okay... I mean, I'm... I am a vegetarian... except for veal... Yeah no, veal I love...
174MikePhoebe you don't have to eat...
175PhoebeNo, no, no, I actually it's any baby animals: kittens, fish babies... You know... especially veal... and this, this nice vein of fat running through it... (she cuts the meat, picks it up with her fork and holds it in front of her mouth, which she keeps closed, trying to overcome her vegetarian thoughts... and... puts it in her mouth... Clearly not enjoying the meat....) Hmmm... yummy (everybody seems okay with it, except Mike. He's making a hmmmm.... face... Then Phoebe swallows it.) Hmmm... (at first she likes it, but then, in an instant puts her hand in front of her mouth and runs from the table. You hear a door slamming.)
Episode 416, Lines 169-176
169(ACTION)He takes a bite out of the sandwich and as he does so, Phoebe attacks the other end and starts devouring the sandwich.
170ChandlerThere’s a Phoebe on my sandwich! (He walks away, giving the sandwich to Phoebe.)
171JoeyPhoebe, what-what are you doing?!
172PhoebeI can’t help it. I need the meat. The baby needs the meat.
173JoeyAll right look, y’know how-y’know how when you’re dating someone and you don’t want to cheat on them, unless it’s with someone really hot?
174PhoebeYeah, totally!
175JoeyAll right. Okay. Well this is the same kind of deal. If you’re going to do something wrong, (He grabs two steaks from the freezer) do it right!
176[SCENE]Cut to later, Phoebe is finishing off her steak.
Episode 204, Lines 21-24
21MonicaPlease, when he left town you stayed in your pajamas for a month and I saw you eat a cheeseburger.
23MonicaWell, didn't you?
24PhoebeI might have.
227PhoebeOh! Oh! Oh! Okay, fine, fine. Now I don't feel so bad about sleeping with Jason Hurley.
228MonicaWhat?! You slept with Jason?
229PhoebeYou'd already broken up.
230RachelHow long?
231PhoebeA couple hours.
232MonicaOh, that's nice!
Nitpick: In Episode E219/L199-200: , line(s) 219, Monica shouldn't be surprised Phoebe slept w/ Jason Hurley soon after Jason and Monica broke up -- Phoebe already told her this earlier (Episode E104/L227-232: , line(s) 104).
Episode 219, Lines 199-200
199RACHELWell not when they find out you slept with Jason Hurley an hour after he broke up with Monica.
200MONICAOne hour? You are such a leaf blower.
236MonicaReally. Well, at least 'big girls' don't pee in their pants in seventh grade!
237RachelI was laughing! You made me laugh! (Monica and Rachel start to squabble)
Observation: In Episode E117/L177: , line(s) 117, Monica reveals (sort of) that Rachel used to wet the bed. This is similar to Episode E104/L236-237: , line(s) 104, where Monica reveals Rachel peed in her pants, and to Episode E623/L74-76: , line(s) 623, where Rachel reveals she peed in her sleeping bag.
Episode 117, Lines 177-177
177Monica(as Rachel) I used to wet my bed.
Episode 623, Lines 74-76
74RachelOkay, well then how about puberty! Come on, that’s always a painful time! Y’know your friends invite you to a slumber party and then they stick your hand in warm water while you’re sleeping so that you pee in your sleeping bag.
75PaulNope! That never happened to me!
76RachelWell, you’re lucky you never met that bitch Sharon Majesky. Anyway, umm… The rest of you life, y’know? Any regrets?
