Goofs

Quotes

Phoebe: Y'know, I bet it would actually make my grandmother very happy to know that we're trying to figure out her recipe. I bet she's lookin' up at us and smiling right now.
Ross: Looking *up*?
Phoebe: Oh yeah. No, she was really nice to me, but she's in hell for sure.
Monica: Well, I've tried everything. I give up. I guess I'm not gonna be the mom who makes the world's best chocolate cookies. I do make the best duck confit with broccoli rabe. Kids love that, right?

Chandler is wearing glasses!
13 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Chandler starts to use glasses, but no one notices,even Monica. This makes him feel bad, because he feels that nobody really pays attention to him.

Monica asks Phoebe as a wedding gift her (Phoebe) grandmother's cookies recipe, because her cookies were the best ones she already tasted. Phoebe tells Monica that the fire in her apartment burned the cookie recipe and the only thing left was an old cookie in her refrigerator. Monica thinks that she can find the recipe's ingredients if she tastes the cookie, since she works with that.

Joey accepts Rachel's invitation to learn how to sail. Rachel sailed all her life with her father, and that's why she gets very impatient with Joey. Joey is a terrible student who doesn't pay attention or memorize anything, and that makes Rachel behave like her father, bossing him around and staying stressed.
