Transcribed by: Eric Aasen
2[SCENE]Scene: Monica and Rachel's, the whole gang is there, the guys are watching football, the girls are cooking Thanksgiving dinner.
3The Guys(reacting to a play) Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Awww!
4PhoebeHey, it’s your Thanksgiving too, y'know, instead of watching football, you could help.
5The GuysWe will. (they don’t move)
Nitpick: In Episode E907/L149-152: , line(s) 907, Chandler implies he doesn't like watching football and in Episode E809/L48-51: , line(s) 809, he's watching football just to avoid helping; but in Episode E309/L2-5: , line(s) 309, he seems to enjoy it.
Episode 907, Lines 149-152
149JoeyWell it's okay, its like... its just a football game.
150ChandlerFootball? Just football?
151JoeyYeah, see... you were all worried for nothing.
152ChandlerIt's football... It's just football... This is great! This is the first time I've ever enjoyed football... It may be customary to get a beer... (Chandler walks to the fridge, his back turned to the TV and a moaning sound replaces the cheering of the crowd... Joey's eyes double in size....) What the... (Chandler turns around, but Joey already took a sprint for Chandler, jumps, and floors Chandler in the open space in front of the apartment door....) What are you doing?
Episode 809, Lines 48-51
48PhoebeYeah, it all just came screaming back to me. (Monica exits.) (To Chandler) So how’s the game?
49ChandlerI have no idea.
51ChandlerYeah! I’m just pretending to watch the game so I don’t have to help out with stuff.
80MonicaPhoebe, I thought you said you know what you’re doing?
81PhoebeI thought you meant in life.
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 104, Lines 170-171
170MonicaDo you have a plan?
171PhoebeI don't even have a 'pl'.
172MonicaAll right, come on guys, let’s go! Tie score, and we’re runnin’ out of time. Forty-two!! Thirty-eight!! Hike! (the timer sounds as Monica throws the ball to Phoebe.)
Observation: Douglas Adams fans, take note. The number 42 is mentioned in Episode E121/L223: , line(s) 121, Episode E218/L86: , line(s) 218, thrice in Episode 309 (Episode E309/L172: , line(s) 309, Episode E309/L240: , line(s) 309, Episode E309/L282: , line(s) 309), again in Episode E902/L42: , line(s) 902 and Episode E918/L28: , line(s) 918.

341ChandlerAll right Mike, let's get this over with. Sudden death. Whoever wins this point, wins.
267MarghaWhich do I like?
268RossYeah, y'know for dating, general merriment, taking back to your windmill...
269MarghaWell, if I had to chose right now, which by the way I find really weird, I would have to say, Chandler.
271JoeyWait a minute! Wait a minute! She obviously didn’t understand the question.
272ChandlerWell, you don’t you have Captain Hook explain it to her.
273MarghaI’m sorry, Joey, that is my chose.
Observation: In Episode E309/L267-273: , line(s) 309, Margha doesn't want Joey, but in Episode E320/L3-4: , line(s) 320 Joey says Kate's the first to not reciprocate. (maybe Joey didn't want Margha all that much?)
Episode 320, Lines 3-4
3ChandlerWait a minute, wait. You’re telling me this actress person is the only woman you ever wanted who didn’t want you back?!
4JoeyYeah! Oh my God! (to Chandler) Is this what it’s like to be you?
