63RachelSorry. I’m so exited! I’ve been waiting for this for months! I got my hair coloured! I got new sheets! I’m making him a very fancy meal.
65RachelWhat am I making him by the way?
66MonicaWell, you’re making him a frieze salad with goat cheese and pine nuts, wild nuts, wild rice, roast asparagus, and salmon au croup.
67RachelI thought I was making him filet mignon?
68MonicaYeah, you were, but you decided to make salmon because you had some left over at the restaurant. And then you realised if you (Points at Rachel) bitched about it, then you (Points to herself) would stop cooking, and you (Points at Rachel) would have to make your famous baked potato and Diet Coke.
69RachelWow, I really get crabby when I cook.

Episode E102/L66-72: , line(s) 102 implies Rachel helped make a lasagne. In Episode E905/L130-131: , line(s) 905, Ross notes Rachel hasn't cooked since 1996.

Episode 609, Lines 64-73
64RachelHey! Hey, Pheebs, check it out. Yeah, for my desert, I have chosen to make a traditional English trifle!
65PhoebeWow, that sounds great! And what are you making Monica, in case Rachel’s dessert is...[about to say “bad”] so good that I eat all of it. There’s none left for anybody else!
66[SCENE]Monica, Phoebe, and Rachel laugh
68Rachel(worried) Nothing?
69MonicaNo, sweetie, I-I trust you.
70RachelSo, if-if I mess this up, there’s nothing else for dessert?
71MonicaYou’re not gonna mess it up.
72RachelWow, Monica, I love that, you really have faith in me. Thank you. Technical question, how do you know when uh, the butter’s done?
73MonicaWell, it’s done about two minutes before it looks like that.

69MonicaYou didn't.
