74RachelOkay, well then how about puberty! Come on, that’s always a painful time! Y’know your friends invite you to a slumber party and then they stick your hand in warm water while you’re sleeping so that you pee in your sleeping bag.
75PaulNope! That never happened to me!
76RachelWell, you’re lucky you never met that bitch Sharon Majesky. Anyway, umm… The rest of you life, y’know? Any regrets?
Observation: In Episode E117/L177: , line(s) 117, Monica reveals (sort of) that Rachel used to wet the bed. This is similar to Episode E104/L236-237: , line(s) 104, where Monica reveals Rachel peed in her pants, and to Episode E623/L74-76: , line(s) 623, where Rachel reveals she peed in her sleeping bag.
Episode 117, Lines 177-177
177Monica(as Rachel) I used to wet my bed.
Episode 104, Lines 236-237
236MonicaReally. Well, at least 'big girls' don't pee in their pants in seventh grade!
237RachelI was laughing! You made me laugh! (Monica and Rachel start to squabble)
204JoeyFrom now on, it’s gonna be Joey and Ross, best friends. (They shake hands.) Okay! We’re gonna be the new Joey and Chandler.
Observation: Ross took Joey's comment in Episode E623/L204: , line(s) 623 seriously. In Episode E902/L8-9: , line(s) 902, Ross considers Joey, not Chandler, his best friend.
Episode 902, Lines 8-9
8RachelWell—Really? I thought Chandler was your best friend.
9RossWell, Chandler’s my oldest friend, but Joey’s my—No! Ah! (points at Rachel)
220RachelI’m so glad, I’m so glad you shared. (Feeling his shoulder.) And I’m glad that you’re done. What do you say we umm… (Nods in the direction of the bedroom.)
221PaulI would really like that. (They kiss.)
222[SCENE]Scene: Rachel’s Bedroom, Paul and Rachel are recovering.
223PaulThat was…so good. (Starts crying again.)
Observation: In Episode E623/L220-223: , line(s) 623, Paul starts crying after having sex with Rachel. Kind of reminds you of Pete Carney, who Rachel mentions in Episode E114/L54-55: , line(s) 114.
Episode 114, Lines 54-55
54MonicaWhich one was Pete Carney?
55RachelPete the Weeper? Remember that guy who used to cry every time we had sex. (imitating) "Was it good for you?"
228ChandlerNo, it’s not! When I looked at the other ring I could see Monica’s face when I gave it to her, y’know? And I could see her saying yes. When I look at this ring, all I see is a ring! Unless I look at it really closely and then I can see my own eye. (Does so and laughs.) Look, this is the most important thing I’m gonna do in my life. I wanna make sure it’s perfect.
Observation: In Episode E623/L228: , line(s) 623, Chandler wants to propose to Monica w/ the perfect ring. But he's already proposed to Monica w/ a different ring in Episode E515/L232-236: , line(s) 515 (below: 1009 from Episode I1009/E515/Chandler proposes to Monica/: ), and w/ no ring at all in Episode E523/L473-490: , line(s) 523.
Episode 515, Lines 232-236
232ChandlerOkay, I've been doing a lot of thinking about us, y'know a lot of uhh, us thinking. And uh, well I guess there's only one-one way to do this. (He slowly and awkwardly gets down on one knee.)
233MonicaWait what-wh-wh-what are you doing?!
234Chandler(getting out a ring box) Monica…
235MonicaNo-no, don't-don't-don't do it!
236ChandlerWill you marry me?
Episode 523, Lines 473-490
473ChandlerYou roll another hard eight and we get married here tonight.
474MonicaAre you serious?!
475ChandlerYes! I love you! I've never loved anybody as much as I love you.
476MonicaI've never loved anybody as much as I love you.
477ChandlerOkay, so if an eight comes up, we take it as a sign and we do it! {Whoa! Where have I heard that before? Matthew Perry talking about signs in Las Vegas. I guess it must've been some movie I saw.} What do you say?
479ChandlerOkay! Come on! Let's go! All right!
480(ACTION)She rolls the dice, but one bounces out of the table.
481Chandler(spots one) Okay! That's a four! And where-where's the other one?
482Drunken GamblerIt went under the table.
483MonicaNobody move! (To Chandler) Okay, you look that way; I'll look this way!
484ChandlerAll right!
485(ACTION)He searches to his right; she searches to her left. They're both on their hands and knees when they spot the die. It's propped up against the table leg, and it's not lying flat. Both the four and the five are showing.
486ChandlerHere it is! Here it is!
487MonicaThat could be a four or a five. It's your call.
489ChandlerIt's a four.
490MonicaI think so too.
