MONICA: Hey, look at me. I'm making jam, been at it since 4 o'clock this morning.

ROSS: Where'd you get fruit at four in the morning?

MONICA: Went down to the docks. Bet ya didn't know you could get it wholesale.

RACHEL: I didn't know there were docks.

RACHEL: Did you tell the doctor you did it jumping up and down on your bed?

JOEY: Nooo. I had a story all worked out but then Chandler sold me out.

CHANDLER: Well, I'm sorry Joe. I didn't think the doctor was gonna buy that it just *fell* out of the socket.

JOEY: What is this? Fruit?

RACHEL: Monica's making jam.

JOEY: Whoa, jam! I love jam! Hey, how come we never have jam at our place?

CHANDLER: Because the kids need new shoes.

PHOEBE: Um, that's it. No. Hey! You! J. Crew guy. Yeah. Why have you been following me? I mean, all week long everywhere I look there's you.

GUY: You wouldn't return my calls, you sent back my letters....


GUY: One more chance Ursula, please?

PHOEBE: Oooh. Oh, well this is awkward.

GUY: Wh...

PHOEBE: Um, yeah, you want Ursula, and I'm Phoebe. Twin sisters! Seriously.

GUY: Oh, that's great. I'm stalking the wrong woman. I am such a dingus!

PHOEBE: Oh, you're not a dingus.

GUY: I just, I want you to know I didn't used to be like this. Before I meet your sister I was like this normal guy who sold beepers and cellular phones.

PHOEBE: Well, I mean look it's, it's not your fault, you know. I mean this is just what, what she does to guys, okay.

GUY: Well thanks.

PHOEBE: Wait, you know what, I got a little story. When I was in Junior High School I went through this period where I thought I was a witch. And there was this guidance counselor who said something to me, that I think will help you a lot. He said okay, 'you're not a witch you're just an average student.' See what I'm saying?

GUY: Not really.

CHANDLER: Do I look fat?


CHANDLER: Okay, I accept that. When Janice asked me and I said no, she took that to mean that I was calling her a cow.

RACHEL: Okay, walk us through it, honey, walk us through it.

CHANDLER: Okay, well. Janice said 'Hi, do I look fat today?' And I, I looked at her...

ROSS: Whoa, whoa, whoa. You looked at her. You never look. You just answer, it's just a reflex. Do I look fat? Nooo! Is she prettier than I am? Noo! Does size matter?


ROSS: And it works both ways.

CHANDLER: Okay, so you both just know this stuff?

RACHEL: Well you know, after about thirty or forty fights, you kinda catch on.

ROSS: Okay, for instance. Let's say, Janice is coming back from a trip and she gives you two options. Option number 1 she'll take a cab home from the airport. Option 2 is you can meet her at baggage claim. Which do you do?

CHANDLER: That's easy, baggage claim.

ROSS: Wrong! Now you're single. It's actually secret option number three, you meet her at the gate. That way she knows you love her.

CHANDLER: Okay, this is good, this is good. All right listen, I have one. Janice likes to cuddle, at night, which, you know I'm all for. But, uh, you know when you want to go to sleep, you want some space. So, uh, how do I tell her that without, you know, accidentally calling her fat or something.

RACHEL: Oh honey, I'm sorry we can't help you there, 'cause we're cuddlily sleepers.

ROSS: Okay the sleeping thing. Very tricky business, but there is something you can do.

CHANDLER: Well, I thought you guys were cuddlily sleepers.

ROSS: Noo! No, not cuddlily, not me, just her. I'm like you, I need the room. Okay, come here. (they sit on the couch and Ross puts his hands on Chandler's shoulder and thigh.) Okay, you're in bed...


ROSS: I'm gonna use the cushion.


ROSS: Okay, you're in bed. She's over on your side, cuddling. Now you wait for her to drift off, and then you hug her and roll her back over to her side of the bed. And then you rollll a-way. Hug for her! Roll for you.

CHANDLER: Okay, the old hug and roll.

ROSS: Yep.

CHANDLER: Okay, one question.

ROSS: Shoot.

CHANDLER: You're pretending the pillow's a girl right?

MONICA: Joey, take your time with that. That's my last batch.

JOEY: No more jam?!

RACHEL: Well, what happened to your jam plan?

MONICA: I figured out I need to charge seventeen bucks a jar just to break even. So, I've got a new plan now. Babies.

CHANDLER: Well, you're gonna need much bigger jars.

ROSS: What are you talking about?

MONICA: I'm talking about me having a baby.

ROSS: What?

RACHEL: Are you serious?

MONICA: Yeah. The great thing about the jam plan was, I was taking control of my life. So I asked myself, what is the most important thing to me in the world and that's when I came up with the baby plan.

ROSS: Well, aren't you forgetin' something? What, what, what is uh, what is that guy's name? Dad!

MONICA: It took me 28 years to find one man that I wanna spend my life with, if I have to wait another 28 years then, I'll be 56 before I can have a baby, and that's just stupid.

CHANDLER: That, that's what's stupid.

MONICA: I don't need an actual man, just a couple of his best swimmers. And there, there are places you can go to get that stuff.

RACHEL: Down at the docks again?

MALCOM: Here's my binoculars.

PHOEBE: Oh, great. Great. You're doing great, you know real strong. Going strong. Keep going.

MALCOM: These are my night vision goggles. This is the book I pretend to read when I'm watching her in the park. And these are Mad Lips, they're just for fun.

PHOEBE: Oh, yeah. What's this?

MALCOM: Oh, this is log I kept, recording her every movement. Do you wanna here something from it?

PHOEBE: Um, not even a little bit.

CHANDLER: No, that's all right. I just had a jar of mustard.

MONICA: Okay, sperm donor number 03815, come on down! Okay, he's 6'2", 170 pounds, and he describes himself as a male Geena Davis.

CHANDLER: You mean there's more than one of us.

MONICA: Okay, all right, how's this? 27. Italian-American guy. He's an actor, born in Queens. Wow, big family, seven sisters, and he's the only...boy. Oh my God, under personal comments: 'New York Knicks, rule!'

JOEY: Yeah, the Knicks rule!

MONICA: Joey, this is you!

JOEY: Let me see. Oh, right.

RACHEL: When did you go to a sperm bank?

JOEY: Well, right after I did that sex study down at NYU. Hey, Remember that sweater I gave you for your birthday?

CHANDLER: And that's how you bought it?

JOEY: Noooo, that's what I was wearing when I donated. I'm kinda surprised there's any of my boys left.

MONICA: Well, honey, it is pretty competitive. I mean I've got an actual rocket scientist here.

JOEY: Maybe, I should call this place and get them to put my 'Days of Our Lives' on here. You know, juice this puppy up a little.

RACHEL: Oh my God, what happened?

JANICE: Oh. God, crazy Chandler. He spun me... off... the... bed!

RACHEL: Wow! Spinning that sounds like fun.

JANICE: Oh, I wish. No, you know he was just trying Ross's Hug and Roll thing.

RACHEL: Ross's what?

JANICE: You know what, where he hugs you and kinda rolls you away and... Oh... my... God.

JOEY: Hey.


JOEY: Where you going?

MONICA: To the bank.

JOEY: Sperm or regular?

MONICA: Sperm.

JOEY: So you're really doing this, huh?

MONICA: Oh yeah, picked a guy, 37135.

JOEY: Sounds nice.

MONICA: 'Fraid so. Brown hair, green eyes...

JOEY: No kiddin', hmm.


JOEY: No, I-I figured you would've picked a blond guy.

MONICA: Really? Why?

JOEY: I don't know, I just always pictured you ending up with one of those tall, smart blond guys, name like... Hoyt.


JOEY: It's a name, yeah. I saw you, you know, in this great house with a big pool.

MONICA: Really, is he a swimmer?

JOEY: He's got the body for it.

MONICA: I like that. What?

JOEY: You guys have one of those signs that says: 'We don't swim in your toilet, so don't pee in our pool.', you know.

MONICA: We do not have one of those signs.

JOEY: Sure you do, it was a gift from me. Oh! And you have these three great kids.

MONICA: Two girls and a boy?

JOEY: Yeah!

MONICA: And, and, and they wear those little water wings, you know. And they're, they're running around on the deck. Then Hoyt wraps this big towel around all three of them.

JOEY: Sure! But hey, you know this way sounds good too.


JOEY: Oh Monica. Wow, this guy's an astronaut. That would've been cool, for like a day.

ROSS: Hey. Uh, Chan, can I uh, can I talk to you for a second?

CHANDLER: Sure. What's up?

ROSS: Just one uh, one additional relationship thought. Probably something you're already familiar with, uh, women talk!
