(Ross is showing Joey a book Rachel read...)
Joey Tribbiani: What is it?
Ross Geller: I don't know. It's got all this stuff about wind and trees... and there is some sacred pool in it. I don't really get it. But she's pretty upset about it.
Joey Tribbiani: See... This is why I don't date women who read.
Phoebe Buffay: That's my tattoo.
Rachel Green: That is not a tattoo. That is a nothing.
Phoebe Buffay: For your information, this is exactly what I wanted. This is a tattoo of the Earth as seen from a great, great distance. It's the way my mother sees me from heaven.
Rachel Green: Oh, what a load of crap! That is a dot! Your mother's in heaven going, "Where the hell's my lily, you wuss!" That is not a tattoo! (Ross enters the room) This is a tattoo!
Ross Geller: You got a tattoo?
Rachel Green: Maybe. But just a little one. Phoebe got the whole world!
Richard's friend: Is she really 20?
Richard Burke: I am not telling you guys anything.
Jack Geller: Come on, it's my birthday. Let me live vicariously!
Ross Geller: Dad, you really don't want to do that.
Jack Geller: What's a little midlife crisis between friends?
Richard Burke: Jack... Would you let it go?
Jack Geller: I know what you're going through. When I turned 50, I got the Porsche. You got your own little speedster.
Richard Burke: Seriously, it's not like that.
Jack Geller: Tell you what. Maybe one of these weekends you can borrow the car and I could...
Ross Geller: Dad, I beg you not to finish that sentence!
Rachel Green: I'm good. I won't laugh anymore. Put your hands back there.
Ross Geller: No, see, now I can't, because, uh... I'm feeling too self-conscious.
Rachel Green: Just one cheek.
Ross Geller: No. Ha. The moment's gone.
Rachel Green: Just put your hands out and I'll back up into it.
Ross Geller: That's romantic.
Ross Geller: Okay, here you go. Pay me back whenever you like.
Monica Geller: You have dinosaur checks?
Ross Geller: Yeah. You get your money and you learn something. What's wrong with that?
Monica Geller: Nothing. Nothing. Hey, you're a cheap-a-saurus! I'm kidding, I'm kidding. Thank you, I'm very grateful.
Phoebe Buffay: Ross, could you just open your mind, like, this much? Okay? Wasn't there a time when the brightest minds in the world believe the Earth was flat? And up till 50 years ago, you all thought the atom was the smallest thing... until you split it open and this whole mess of crap came out. Now, are you telling me that you are so unbelievably arrogant that you can't admit that there's a teeny, tiny possibility that you could be wrong about this?
Ross Geller: There might be... a teeny... tiny... possibility.
Phoebe Buffay: I can't believe you caved.
Ross Geller: What?
Phoebe Buffay: You just abandoned your whole belief system! Before, I didn't agree with you, but at least I respected you.
Ross Geller: But...
Phoebe Buffay: How are you gonna go into work tomorrow? How are you going to face the other science guys? How are you going to face yourself? Oh...
(Ross is shocked and leaves...)
Phoebe Buffay: That was fun.
