Monica:Hey Pheebs, howís the waitering going?

 

Phoebe:This is the best job ever!

 

Monica:Donít say that too loud.

 

Phoebe:Why not?

 

Monica:Because a lot of the other waiters are struggling actors and they hate waitering.

Monica:The manager.

 

Phoebe:Well, Iíll just donate my tips.

Phoebe:I havenít gotten home yet.Like Iíd have time to call.

 

Monica (frustrated):No Phoebe, how have you been ringing up your orders?

 

Phoebe:Weíre supposed to ring them up?

 

Monica:Yes!

 

Phoebe:You didnít tell me that.

 

Monica:You told me you knew what you were doing!

 

Phoebe:I generally do.

 

Monica:So how have you been charging the customers?

 

Phoebe:I just add up their orders on this (shows her a calculator), calculate the sales tax and give them their bill.Then when they pay, I pocket the cash.

 

Monica:What if they charge their bill?

 

Phoebe:Then I do the charge thingy.

 

Monica:The charge thingy?

 

Phoebe:Yeah, that machine that you run the charge cards through.Iím not completely stupid.

 

Monica:This keeps getting better.

 

(Cut to Ross, Rachel, and Jennifer.They stop by Chandler and Monicaís but no one is home.They go to Joeyís and heís gone as well.They go to Phoebeís and of course, sheís not home)

CENTRAL PERK (Joey and Chandler are present)

 

Joey:I pissed off Courteney.

 

Chandler:What did you do now?

 

Joey:I dunno.She told me that she loved me and I said I liked her too.

 

Chandler:Thereís your answer.

 

Joey (looking around):Where?

 

Chandler:Joey, you were supposed to say I love you too.

 

Joey:But I did!

 

Chandler:No you didnít.

 

Joey:Yes, I did.

 

Chandler:No you didnít.

 

Joey:Yes, I did.

 

Chandler:Ok, stop.Look, if you want to fix this, youíve got to figure out if you love her or not.

If you do, then go tell her.

 

Joey:Why do I have to tell her?Isnít it enough that I show her?

 

Chandler:No.

 

Joey:But Iíve never said those words to anyone.

 

Chandler:Not even your family?

 

Joey:Thatís different.

 

Chandler:It really isnít that different.Look, I was scared as hell to tell Monica that I loved her, but after I did, man, it was the best feeling in the world.

 

Joey:You know what, I really do think I love her.Iíve never felt this way about anyone.

 

Chandler:Then go and tell her before itís too late.†††

 

Gunther:There you guys are.Ross and Rachel were looking for you.

 

Joey:What did they want?

 

Gunther:They wanted to introduce Jennifer Aniston to you.

 

Chandler:Theyíre still on that?Like they know Jennifer Aniston.
