Only annotated lines are quoted below, not the entire script

Transcribed by: Eric Aasen
2[SCENE]Scene: Joey and Rachel's, Joey is reading What to Expect When You’re Expecting as Rachel enters from her bedroom.
3JoeyHey Rach listen, did you know that during pregnancy your fingers swell up to twice their size and never go back.
4Rachel(looking at her fingers) Oh my…God! Let me see that! (Grabs the book from him.)
5Joey(laughing) You fall for it every time!
Observation: In Episode E809/L2-5: , line(s) 809, it's surprising Rachel falls for Joey's tricks since Phoebe's already been pregnant and presumably none of these things happened to her.
11Monica(entering) Oh good you’re all here. Thanksgiving tomorrow, four o’clock. (To Rachel) Oh, guess who I invited. Remember that guy Will Colbert from high school?
13MonicaHe was in Ross’s class…marching band…kinda overweight? Well, really overweight. I mean I was his thin friend.
Observation: In Episode E809/L11-13: , line(s) 809, Monica's of course joking about being Will's thin friend, since Ross was also Will's friend (Episode E809/L80-81: , line(s) 809) and was much thinner than Monica.
Episode 809, Lines 80-81
80MonicaOh umm, I meant to tell you, Ross is coming.
81WillRoss is coming. Great! I love Ross!
48PhoebeYeah, it all just came screaming back to me. (Monica exits.) (To Chandler) So how’s the game?
49ChandlerI have no idea.
51ChandlerYeah! I’m just pretending to watch the game so I don’t have to help out with stuff.
Nitpick: In Episode E907/L149-152: , line(s) 907, Chandler implies he doesn't like watching football and in Episode E809/L48-51: , line(s) 809, he's watching football just to avoid helping; but in Episode E309/L2-5: , line(s) 309, he seems to enjoy it.
Episode 907, Lines 149-152
149JoeyWell it's okay, its like... its just a football game.
150ChandlerFootball? Just football?
151JoeyYeah, see... you were all worried for nothing.
152ChandlerIt's football... It's just football... This is great! This is the first time I've ever enjoyed football... It may be customary to get a beer... (Chandler walks to the fridge, his back turned to the TV and a moaning sound replaces the cheering of the crowd... Joey's eyes double in size....) What the... (Chandler turns around, but Joey already took a sprint for Chandler, jumps, and floors Chandler in the open space in front of the apartment door....) What are you doing?
Episode 309, Lines 2-5
2[SCENE]Scene: Monica and Rachel's, the whole gang is there, the guys are watching football, the girls are cooking Thanksgiving dinner.
3The Guys(reacting to a play) Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Awww!
4PhoebeHey, it’s your Thanksgiving too, y'know, instead of watching football, you could help.
5The GuysWe will. (they don’t move)
151Joey(quietly) Oh. How-how big is that?
152MonicaAbout nineteen pounds.
153Joey(To Rachel) It’s like me when I was born.
Observation: In Episode E519/L64: , line(s) 519, Joey says he weighed 27 pounds at birth; in Episode E809/L151-153: , line(s) 809, he compares himself to a 19-pound turkey (he's probably approximating).
Episode 519, Lines 64-64
64JoeyYeah, I uh weighted like 27 pounds when I was born so…
159WillI said it was typical. Typical of you, Rachel Green, Queen Rachel does whatever she wants in little Rachel land. (Does a fake hair flip.)
Observation: There's an excellent bit of continuity in Episode E809/L159: , line(s) 809 when Will makes a reference to "Rachel-land", just like Ross did in Episode E119/L218: , line(s) 119.
Episode 119, Lines 218-218
218RossOh, no no no. Nono, this is just vintage Rachel. I mean, things just sort of happen around you. I mean, you're off in Rachel-land, doing your Rachel-thing, totally oblivious to people's monkeys, or to people's feelings...
185RachelSo Ross, we went out for two years, and you never told me you were in an I Hate Rachel club.
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.
Episode 215, Lines 36-43
36ROSS[beeper goes off] Yeah, yeah, yeah. I got to get to the museum. So um, I'll see you tonight.
37RACHELOK. [they go to kiss but everyone's watching so Ross just kisses her on the top of her head and leaves]
38ROSSBye guys.
40MONICA[walks up to Rachel in front of the TV] Tonight?
41CHANDLER and JOEYHey, yo. [they move from out of in front of the TV]
42MONICAWhat's tonight?
43RACHELIt is our first official date. Our first date.
Episode 315, Lines 167-170
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)
169RachelNo. (Ross is standing in the doorway.) A break from us.
170(ACTION)Ross looks at her, then leaves slamming the door behind him.
