“Phoebe, I’m not going to Ross’s wedding, because he’s my ex-boyfriend and that would be really uncomfortable. It’s not because I’m still in love with him.

[Rachel starts laughing]
Ross: What? Was that a joke? Because it’s mean.
Rachel: I’m so dead serious. I’m totally serious.
Ross: Why are you laughing?
Rachel: Because I just heard it. I heard it. And it’s ridiculous. I mean. You’re married. You’re married, and it’s just ridiculous. It’s like when I said it, I sort of floated up out of my body, you know. And then I heard myself say it, and then the floating Rachel – I was like, “You are such an idiot!” [laughing]” Friends, Season Five, Episode 2: “The One with All the Kissing”

Rachel: Oh, God. You know what? Do you think, could you just forget I told you this?
Ross: Well, I kind of have to. Because the thing is-
Rachel: The thing is, you know, that you’re married to Emily.
Ross: That is what the thing is.
Rachel: Oh, God. Ross, things won’t be weird between us, right? Was that just the stupidest thing? Me telling you that?

Monica: Listen, if you and Chip do it tonight, promise me you’ll tell me everything.
Rachel: Oh, totally, totally. You know, it’s not that big a deal. We already kind of did it once.

Rachel: I know. And Chip promised that this time it’d last at least for an entire song.” Friends, Season Five, Episode 8: “The One with All the Thanksgivings”

Ross: Not that it’s any of your business, but we did go out.
Salesman: Really? You two?
Ross: Yeah, Rach?
Rachel: Come on, I really don’t want to be doing this right now. I’m carrying a heavy couch.
Ross: Then tell him quickly.
Rachel: Fine. We went out.
Ross: Not only did we go out, we did it 298 times!

Ross: A loser you did it with 298 times!” Friends, Season Five, Episode 16: “The One with the Cop”

Joey: Well, the reason I think Monica and Chandler are so great is because they were friends first. So I asked myself, who are my friends? You and Phoebe. I saw you first, so…
Rachel: What are you saying?
Joey: I’m saying maybe you and I crank it up a notch.
Rachel: You know, honey as flattered as I am that you saw me first, I just don’t think we should be cranking anything up.
Joey: I’ll treat you real nice.
Rachel: Yeah. Well, you know. I think it’s a great idea to become friends with someone before you date. But I think the way you do it is you meet someone, become their friend, build a foundation, then ask them out on a date. Don’t hit on your existing friends.” Friends, Season Five, Episode 16: “The One with the Cop”

Chandler: Rachel, when you were going out with Ross, did it bother you when he flirted with other women?
Rachel: No. No, it bothered me when he slept with other women.” Friends, Season Five, Episode 19: “The One Where Ross Can’t Flirt”

Ross: You know, you’ve done a lot of stupid stuff too, okay?
Rachel: Oh, name one stupid thing that is as stupid as this one.

Rachel: Wait, that was different. I did those things because I was in love with you.” Friends, Season Six, Episode 5: “The One with Joey’s Porsche”

Rachel: So did you read your evaluation yet?
Tag: No, it was marked “confidential.” I just sent it down to human resources.
Rachel: Okay, please, you’re kidding, right? I wrote that one as a joke for you.
Tag: A joke they would appreciate?
Rachel: I’m thinking, no.
Tag: What did you say?
Rachel: I said I thought you were a good kisser and that I liked your teeny, tiny tushy.
Tag: Oh, no, not my tushy.
Rachel: Oh, it gets worse. Where asked if you take initiative, I wrote: “Yes, he was able to unhook my bra with minimal supervision.” And under problems with performance, I wrote, “Dear God, I hope not.” And then- And then I drew a little smiley face. And then a small pornographic sketch.” Friends, Season Seven, Episode 9: “The One with All the Candy”

Rachel: You know what, honey? Guys are just different. They like things that we can’t understand. You know, I once dated this guy who wanted to pretend that he was an archaeologist, and I was this naughty cavewoman who he unfroze from a block of ice.
Monica: Ew. Are you talking about my brother?
Rachel: Yeah, I didn’t disguise that very well, did I?” Friends, Season Nine, Episode 4: “The One with the Sharks”

[on answering machine] Ross, hi. It’s me. I just got back on the plane. And I just feel awful. That is so not how I wanted things to end with us. It’s just that I wasn’t expecting to see you and all of a sudden you’re there and saying these things. And- And now I’m just sitting here and thinking of all the stuff I should have said, and I didn’t. I mean, I didn’t even get to tell you that I love you too. Because of course I do. I love you. I love you. I love you. What am I doing? I love you! Oh, I’ve gotta see you. I’ve gotta get off this plane.” Friends, Season Ten, Episode 18: “The Last One (Part 2)”
