Only annotated lines are quoted below, not the entire script

1Written byBrian Boyle
Directed by: David Schwimmer
Transcribed by: Eric Aasen
84[SCENE]Scene: Central Perk, Chandler is sitting on the couch when some unknown guy comes in and sits in their easy chair.
85ChandlerNo-no-no-no. (Waves him away as Monica and Phoebe enter whispering to each other.) Hey! (Monica shushes him.)
Question: Is there a story behind the guy in Episode E704/L84-85: , line(s) 704? (below: 1020 from Episode I1020/E704/Unknown Guy/: )

93MonicaReally? Okay, so why don’t you tell me what happened to Ross Junior year at Disneyland?
Nitpick: In Episode E107/L64-66: , line(s) 107, Ross says he and Carol banned from Disneyland in 1989. But in Episode E704/L93: , line(s) 704, we find out Ross visited Disneyland his junior year in college. Either Ross' junior year was before 1989 (which would be inconsistent with other chronology), or both incidents refer to the same trip (or Ross went to Disneyland twice in 1989?), or the ban applied only to both him and Carol (but not to either of them individually), or Ross simply ignored the ban.
Episode 107, Lines 64-66
64RossDisneyland, 1989, 'It's a Small World After All.'
65AllNo way!
66RossThe ride broke down. So, Carol and I went behind a couple of those mechanical Dutch children... then they fixed the ride, and we were asked never to return to the Magic Kingdom.
110PhoebeCome on you know what to do! You hire the first one! You don’t hire an assistant because they’re cute, you hire them because they’re qualified.
111RachelUh-huh. No, I hear what you’re saying and-and-and that makes a lot of sense but can I just say one more thing? (Takes out his picture.) Look how pretty!
Observation: Chandler wants to date Nina (Episode E116/L96-97: , line(s) 116) for the same reason Rachel wants to hire tag (Episode E704/L110-111: , line(s) 704).
Episode 116, Lines 96-97
96ChandlerIt’s not just that she’s cute, okay. It’s just that... she’s really really cute.
97RossIt doesn’t matter. You don’t dip your pen in the company ink.
183RossAnd this girl is making eyes at Chandler, okay? So after awhile he-he goes over to her and uh, after a minute or two, I see them kissing. Now, I know what you’re thinking, Chandler’s not the type of guy who just goes to bars and makes out with girls, and you’re right, Chandler’s not the type of guy who just goes to bars and makes out with…girls.
184Monica(To Chandler) You kissed a guy?!! Oh my God.
185ChandlerIn my defense, it was dark and he was a very pretty guy.
Observation: In Episode E704/L183-185: , line(s) 704, Monica seems shocked after Ross tells her that Chandler kissed a guy. Actually, Joey kisses Chandler in Episode E110/L264-265: , line(s) 110 (Ross even takes a picture), and Ross is hardly one to talk -- he kissed Joey in Episode E224/L227-228: , line(s) 224. Finally, Joey mentions he kissed a guy in Episode E203/L12: , line(s) 203, though he doesn't realize he did so.
Episode 110, Lines 264-265
264ChandlerAlright, somebody kiss me. Somebody kiss me, it's midnight! Somebody kiss me!
265JoeyAlrightalrightalright. (Kisses him. Ross takes a photo) There.
Episode 224, Lines 227-228
227ROSSAll right I've been feeling incredibly guilty about this, because I wanna be a good friend, and dammit I am a good friend. So just, just shut up and close your eyes (kisses Joey).
228JOEYWow, you are a good friend, 'course the audition was this morning, and I didn't get it. But that was a hell of a kiss. Rachel is a very lucky girl.
Episode 203, Lines 12-12
12JoeyHold it, hold it. I gotta side with Chandler on this one. When I first moved to the city, I went out a couple of times with this girl, really hot, great kisser, but she had the biggest Adam's apple. It made me nuts.
218RossOhh! Ohh! In college, Chandler got drunk and slept with the lady who cleaned our dorm!
219ChandlerThat was you!
Nitpick: In Episode E104/L217-221: , line(s) 104, Ross says he's only been with Carol, and Chandler doesn't correct him. But in Episode E704/L218-219: , line(s) 704, Chandlers says Ross slept with the lady who cleaned their dorms. This isn't a nitpick for Ross, since, until Episode 704, he thought Chandler had slept w/ the dorm-cleaning lady.
Episode 104, Lines 217-221
217RossMy first time with Carol was... (He mumbles the last part)
219RossIt was my first time.
220JoeyWith Carol? (Ross gives him a look.) Oh.
221ChandlerSo in your whole life, you've only been with one—(He gets a look too)—oh.
