8PhoebeI have a date with this diplomat I met while I was giving free massages outside the UN and, I don’t know where his country is.
9MonicaOkay, let’s start with the free messages outside the UN.
10PhoebeOh!! That’s my new thing. I figure bodies at peace, make peace.
11MonicaWow! You might just get the first Nobel prize in rubbing. So what country is this guy from?
Observation: Monica's joke (Episode E315/L8-11: , line(s) 315) probably inspired Phoebe's fantasy (Episode E718/L240-243: , line(s) 718).
Episode 718, Lines 240-243
240(ACTION)Phoebe notices the Soapie on the counter.
241PhoebeOh. (Picks it up.) It’s just so unexpected! I…I uh…Boy I’ll tell you it’s just such an honor to be nominated for a Nobel Prize and y’know to win one for a massage. Especially after having just won a Tony award for best actress in…
242Rachel(entering from her room) Honey, we have to go. Our reservations are at 8:00.
243Phoebe…in Reservations at 8:00 by Neil Simon. (To an imaginary Neil Simon) Thank-thank you Neil. Thank you for the words. (Blows him a kiss.)
167RachelI don’t know, I don’t know. Urrrgh! Look, maybe we should take a break.
168RossOkay, okay, fine, you’re right. Let’s ah, let’s take a break, (goes to the door) let’s cool off, okay, let’s get some frozen yogart, or something.. (opens the door)
Nitpick: Ross doesn't like ice cream (Episode E708/L121-125: , line(s) 708), but seems to be ok w/ frozen yogurt (Episode E315/L168: , line(s) 315). Ross enjoys ice cream with Elizabeth in Episode E618/L138: , line(s) 618 (below: 1017 from Episode I1017/E618/Ross and Elizabeth with ice cream/: , but if you watch carefully, Ross never actually eats ice cream in this scene), and with Marcel in Episode E212/L500: , line(s) 212 (below: 34 from Episode I34/E212/Ross and Marcel share an ice cream/: ). In Episode E103/L290-292: , line(s) 103, everyone seems to be eating ice cream, but, again, if you watch carefully, Ross is just holding a spoon and not actually eating anything (below: 1002 from Episode I1002/E103/Ross not-quite-eating ice cream/: ).
Episode 708, Lines 121-125
121JoeyLook, Chandler, I told you, never tell anyone about this dog thing. It's like Ross not likin’ ice cream.
122PhoebeYou don't like ice cream?
123RossIt's too cold.
124ChandlerOkay, it's just that dogs make me a little uncomfortable.
125Ross(to Phoebe) It hurts my teeth.
Episode 618, Lines 138-138
138[SCENE]Scene: A street, Ross is walking with Elizabeth on their date.
Episode 212, Lines 500-500
500[SCENE]"Looks Like We Made It" starts playing and we enter a whole sequence of Marcel and Ross having fun in the city.
Episode 103, Lines 290-292
290[SCENE]Scene: Monica and Rachel's, everyone is mopping around and eating ice cream.
291RachelRemember when we went to Central Park and rented boats?.. That was fun.
292RossYeah. He could row like a viking.

169RachelNo. (Ross is standing in the doorway.) A break from us.
170(ACTION)Ross looks at her, then leaves slamming the door behind him.
Observation: In Episode E809/L185: , line(s) 809, Rachel says she and Ross went out for 2 years. Actually, they start dating in Episode E215/L36-43: , line(s) 215, and stop dating in Episode E315/L167-170: , line(s) 315, which is one year.
