This close to Christmas, my household holiday, I felt in the
mood to look up something from my classically favorite sitcom. I didn’t expect
to find myself stumped and confused shortly thereafter.
Let’s see how well all you readers do at the Quote Quiz. Better than standard –isms, these quips gave each reigning episode a bit of flavor. Don’t read ahead now, else you’ll just be highly informed by sporadic trivia today. Give it your best shot!
Q: “Okay, you have to stop the q-tip when there’s resistance.”
A: Chandler, The One With Ross’s New Girlfriend.
Chandler’s comeback to one of Joey’s more obvious lapses in memory…and, uh, brain-power.
Q: “You can't have Thanksgiving without turkey. That's like Fourth of July without apple pie, or Friday with no two pizzas!”
A: Joey, The One With The Rumor
Joey, aghast when Monica announces she won’t be making Thanksgiving turkey for lack of mouths to feed. He then offers to finish the whole bird should she be correct!
Q: “Ah, salmon skin roll.”
A: Rachel, The One With Unagi
When Ross receives a scare from Rachel and Phoebe, after bragging over trying “unagi” sushi.
Q: “Chandler’s a girl! Chandler’s a girl!”
A: Frankie, The One With The Triplets
When Phoebe gives birth and Frankie greets two girls and a boy, as opposed to two boys and a girl. The intended Chandler becomes female.
Q: “Wow! You're good! After this, we should solve crimes.”
A: Phoebe, The One With The Ring
Phoebe makes this remark when Chandler observes no one else has proposed to Monica, because she isn’t wearing a ring on her ring-finger.
While not every friend went quotable in this article, rest assured there exist plenty more for another rainy day. In lieu of fewer episode lineups, I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday. Until the New Year!
