Mrs. Geller: Oh, Martha Ludwin's daughter is gonna call you. Mmm! What's that curry taste?

Monica: Curry.

Mrs. Geller: Mmmm!

Ross: I- I think they're great! I, I really do.

Mr. Geller: Do you remember the Ludwins? The big one had a thing for you, didn't she?

Mrs. Geller: They all had a thing for him.

Ross: Aw, Mom...

Monica: I'm sorry, why is this girl going to call me?

Mrs. Geller: Oh, she just graduated, and she wants to be something in cooking, or food, or... I don't know. Anyway, I told her you had a restaurant.

Monica: No Mom, I don't have a restaurant. I work in a restaurant.

Mrs. Geller: Well, they don't have to know that.

Monica: Ross, could you come and help me with the spaghetti, please?

Ross: Yeah.

Mrs. Geller: Oh, we're having spaghetti! That's... easy.

Monica: I know this is going to sound unbelievably selfish on my part, but, were you planning on bringing up the whole baby, lesbian thing? Because I think it might take some of the heat off me.

Mrs. Geller: What that Rachel did to her life... We ran into her parents at the club, they were not playing very well.

Mr. Geller: I'm not gonna tell you what they spent on that wedding... but 40 thousand dollars is a lot of money!

Mrs. Geller: Well, at least she had the chance to leave a man at the altar...

Monica: What's that supposed to mean?

Mrs. Geller: Nothing! It's an expression.

Monica: No it's not.

Mr. Geller: Don't listen to your mother. You're independent, and you always have been! Even when you were a kid... and you were chubby, and you had no friends, you were just fine! And you would read alone in your room, and your puzzles...

Mr. Geller: Look, there are people like Ross who need to shoot for the stars, with his museum, and his papers getting published. Other people are satisfied with staying where they are -- I'm telling you, these are the people who never get cancer.

Mr. Geller: ... And I read about these women trying to have it all, and I thank God "Our Little Harmonica" doesn't seem to have that problem.

Monica: So, Ross, what's going on with you? Any stories? No news, no little anecdotes to share with the folks?

Ross: Okay! Okay. Look, I, uh... I realize you guys have been wondering what exactly happened between Carol and me, and, so, well, here's the deal. Carol's a lesbian. She's living with a woman named Susan. She's pregnant with my child, and she and Susan are going to raise the baby.

Mrs. Geller: And you knew about this?!
