Episode Quotes
Monica: Do you remember that guy Will from high school? He was in Ross' class, marching band, kind of overweight, well really overweight. I mean I was his thin friend.
Rachel: I don't remember him. Honey are you sure you're not talking about you're imaginary boyfriend?
Monica: No! that was Jared! Wow I haven't thought about him in a long time!

Monica: Just so you know I'm not going to make a turkey this year.
Joey: What?!
Monica: Well Phoebe doesn't eat turkey.
Joey: Phoebe!!
Phoebe: Turkeys are beautiful, intelligent animals!
Joey: No they're not! They're ugly and stupid and delicious!

Phoebe: How's the game?
Chandler: I have no idea.
Phoebe: What?!
Chandler: Yeah, I'm just pretending to watch the game so I don't have to help out with stuff.
Phoebe: I don't believe you! That is brilliant!
