Episode 610: The One With The Routine

Only annotated lines are quoted below, not the entire script

1Written byBrian Boyle
Transcribed by: Samantha Stein
79[SCENE]Scene: Monica and Chandler’s apartment, Chandler is there. Phoebe and Rachel enter.
80RachelOkay, you look in the kitchen, I will look in the back closet.
81ChandlerI can save you time ladies, I’m right here.
82PhoebeYeah, Chandler why don’t you take a walk? This doesn’t concern you.
83RachelWe are looking for our Christmas presents from Monica.
Nitpick: In Episode E814/L70-74: , line(s) 814, the contents of the back closet are a big secret, but in Episode E610/L79-83: , line(s) 610, Rachel looks for Xmas presents there. Interestingly, we see her about to check the closet (below: 1013 from Episode I1013/E610/Rachel about to check the closet/: ) and right after she's checked the closet (below: 1014 from Episode I1014/E610/Rachel finishes checking the closet/: ), but never in the closet itself. [This annotation came from another source, and I am in the process of properly crediting it. It is it not something I annotated myself]
Episode 814, Lines 70-74
70ChandlerHow about the closet by the bathroom? (The secret green door by the bathroom.)
71MonicaOh, okay. Here, why don’t you let me do it?
72ChandlerOh no-no-no, I will do it. Honey, you have to learn to sit down and relax and let your husband take care of things once and awhile. (Tries the door.) It’s locked, you have to help me. Why is it locked?
73MonicaNo reason. I-I keep private things in there.
74ChandlerOh y’know, I’ve been living here a while and I’ve never seen what’s inside that closet. What is, what is in there?

194DirectorOh no! You get up there and do that again exactly like that!
195MonicaYes! (They run over to a platform)
196Director(To Cameraman) Make sure you get this, they’re gonna want it for the bloopers show. (To everyone) Alright cut! Listen up everyone, when we start again it’s gonna be the countdown to new years, so I wanna see everybody’s excitement.
Nitpick: In Episode E610/L194-196: , line(s) 610, the director tells the cameraman to film Monica and Ross' routine for the bloopers show, but in Episode E610/L270: , line(s) 610, we see he yelled "cut" before they could start. Why tell the cameraman to film them if he knew he was going to cut before they could start?
Episode 610, Lines 270-270
270MonicaWe were on the platform, ready to dance the world into the new Millennium, and the guy yelled ‘CUT!’
277Monica and Ross 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 (Ross runs to be caught by Monica, but she moves out of the way)
278MonicaI can’t do it! (Ross falls into Monica’s room)
279ChandlerNow you do that, you’re on TV.
Observation: In Episode E610/L277-279: , line(s) 610, Chandler probably means Ross' fall could be on a bloopers show, but this may also be a Friends self-reference.
