64PHOEBEYeah, I talked to my grandma about the Old Yeller incident, and she told me that my mom used to not show us the ends of sad movies to shield us from the pain and sadness. You know, before she killed herself.
Nitpick: In Episode E614/L51: , line(s) 614, Phoebe says Bambi made her cry, but in Episode E220/L64: , line(s) 220, we learn Phoebe's mom didn't show the sad parts of movies. It's possible Bambi doesn't qualify as "sad" and/or Phoebe's mom wasn't doing this so close to her suicide.
Episode 614, Lines 51-51
51PhoebeOh y’know what’s sadder than this? Bambi. I cried for three days with that movie. No wait two! Because on the third day my mother killed herself so I was partly crying for that.
299[SceneMonica and Rachel's apartment. Phoebe is watching Bert and Ernie with Ben.]
300ERNIEOh wow, look at this nice deep hole I've been digging. Hey Bert, isn't this a nice hole here. Hey.
301PHOEBE[pauses the tape] Ok, Ben, this is the part where Ernie buries Bert in the sand and can't find him. Now, I've looked ahead on the tape and he does find him again. But, ok, before that happens, there's some pretty rough goin' for a while but I think we can handle it. And, there's just the alphabet but we know that ends well so. Ok, here we go. [starts the tape again]
302ERNIEBert, Bert. Bert. Hey, what happened to my friend Bert? He was here just a moment ago. Oh no, my old friend Bert is lost.
Nitpick: In Episode E504/L31-35: , line(s) 504, Phoebe claims to hate PBS and Sesame Street. But, in Episode E220/L299-302: , line(s) 220, she watches Sesame Street characters with Ben. It's possible that Phoebe didn't want her dislike of PBS to affect Ben, but that's stretching it a bit.
Episode 504, Lines 31-35
31PhoebeUgh, PBS!
32MonicaWhat's wrong with PBS?
33PhoebeUgh, what's right with them?
34JoeyWhy don’t you like PBS, Pheebs?
35PhoebeOkay, 'cause right after my mom killed herself, I was just in this really bad place, y'know personally. So, I just thought that it'd make me feel better if I wrote to Sesame Street, 'cause they were so nice when I was a little kid! No one ever wrote back.
