Rachel: Isn’t this amazing? I mean, I have never made coffee before in my entire life.

Chandler: That is amazing.

Joey: Congratulations.

Rachel: Y’know, I figure if I can make coffee, there isn’t anything I can’t do.

Chandler: No, I think if can invade Poland, there isn’t anything I can’t do.

Joey: Listen, while you’re on a roll, if you feel like you gotta make like a Western omelet or something… (Joey and Chandler taste the coffee, grimace, and pour it into a plant pot.) Although actually I’m really not that hungry (this morning)

Monica: (entering, to herself) Oh good, Lenny and Squigy are here.

All: Morning. Good morning.

Paul: (entering from Monica’s room) Morning.

Joey: Morning, Paul.

Rachel: Hello, Paul.

Chandler: Hi, Paul, is it?

(Monica and Paul walk to the door and talk in a low voice so the others can’t hear.  The others move Monica’s table closer to the door so that they can.)

Paul: Thank you!  Thank you so much!

Monica: Stop!

Paul: No, I’m telling you last night was like umm, all my birthdays, both graduations, plus the barn raising scene in Witness.

Monica: We’ll talk later.

Paul: Yeah. (They kiss) Thank you. (Exits)

Joey: That wasn’t a real date?! What the hell do you do on a real date?

Monica: Shut up, and put my table back.

All: Okayyy! (They do so.)

Chandler: All right, kids, I gotta get to work. If I don’t input those numbers,… it doesn’t make much of a difference…

Rachel: So, like, you guys all have jobs?

Monica: Yeah, we all have jobs. See, that’s how we buy stuff.

Joey: Yeah, I’m an actor.

Rachel: Wow! Would I have seen you in anything?

Joey: I doubt it. Mostly regional work.

Monica: Oh wait, wait, unless you happened to catch the Reruns’ production of Pinocchio, at the little theater in the park.

Joey: Look, it was a job all right?

Chandler: ‘Look, Gippetto, I’m a real live boy.’

Joey: I will not take this abuse. (Walks to the door and opens it to leave.)

Chandler: You’re right, I’m sorry. (Burst into song and dances out of the door.) “Once I was a wooden boy, a little wooden boy…

Joey: You should both know, that he’s a dead man.  Oh, Chandler? (Starts after Chandler.)

Monica: So how you doing today? Did you sleep okay? Talk to Barry? I can’t stop smiling.

Rachel: I can see that. You look like you slept with a hanger in your mouth.

Monica: I know, he’s just so, so… Do you remember you and Tony DeMarco?

Rachel: Oh, yeah.

Monica: Well, it’s like that. With feelings.

Rachel: Oh wow. Are you in trouble.

Monica: Big time!

Rachel: Want a wedding dress?   Hardly used.

Monica: I think we are getting a little ahead of selves here. Okay. Okay. I am just going to get up, go to work and not think about him all day. Or else I’m just gonna get up and go to work.
