    thanks
    I would say it could be either one there. If you want to know why she said "headed for" instead of "heading to" you will have to ask the writers.

    :wink:

    question again.

    Ross: Today's the day Carol and I first.. consummated our physical relationship. (Joey is puzzled.) Sex. ..You know what, I-I'd better pass on the game. I think I'm just gonna go home and think about my ex-wife and her lesbian lover.

    Joey: The hell with hockey, let's all do that!

    Chandler: (trying to stop Ross leaving) C'mon, Ross! You, me, Joey, ice, guys' night out, c'mon, whaddya say, big guy, (Pretending to punch him in the stomach.) Huh? Huh? Huh?

    Ross: What are you doing?

    Chandler: (stops) I have no idea.

    Joey: C'mon, Ross!

    Ross: Alright, alright, maybe it'll take my mind off it. Do you promise to buy me a big thumb finger?

    What does the words in brown mean? Is it some kind of food?
    thanks :D

    well, folks

    I think i understand. I remember in that episode Ross got a really big thumb finger to cheer for NewYork Ranger. That might be talking about it.

    Am I right?

    Dear teachers,

    Why would Phoebe say so? Is "Bethel" a bad name or something?



    Ross: My friend Bethel rescued him from some lab.
    Phoebe: That is so cruel! Why? Why would a parent name their child Bethel?

    Many people would consider "Bethel" a rather odd name.

    :)

    Is it because of its meaning?
    I checked some dictionary. It says "Bethel" means "house of God".
    Well, that IS a little bit odd as a name...

    Thanks, Ron...

    I think it is because of the sound of the name. It is not, I think, very appealing.

    :)
