I am gonna stick to this post and put here all my questions that I run into in "Friends":).

What do you think guys? If you happen to have some interest in it, come and post your questions here!

Ok, here comes the first one when Ross and his colleague are setting up an exhibit which includes some mannequins of cave people.

Ross: No, it's good, it is good, it's just that- mm- doesn't she seem a little angry?

Marsha: Well, she has issues.

Ross: Does she.

Marsha: He's out banging other women over the head with a club, while she sits at home trying to get the mastodon smell out of the carpet!


Well, is Marsha saying that he is out flirting with other women or something? The sentence really makes me think that he is trying to kill somebody, hah! A little bit confused...

Dear all, new questioins:). And I just noticed that eric2004 is also reading those script! Great, I think i'll check your post out before I post my question in case they've already been asked:).

thanks to all you guys out there:)

Here is a new one:

Rachel: Mindy?! My maid of honour, Mindy?!

Barry: Yeah, well, uh, we're kind of a thing now.

Rachel: Oh! Well, um.. (Grabs his forehand) You've got plugs!

Barry: Careful! They haven't quite taken yet.

Rachel: And you've got lenses! But you hate sticking your finger in your eye!

What does the "plugs" mean? Totally no idea...

Yes, Marsha is saying that the man is going out consorting with (flirting with; having sex with) other women.

(Say: "Ross and his colleague are setting up an exhibit....")

I think she is referring to hair implants.

Did Rachel grab his forehead or his forehand?

Good eyes! :eyes:

They were talking about contact lenses, so it seemed logical to me that she grabbed his forehead, which is near the eyes. My guess is that that was a misprint.

Yep, but then they were talking about his new hair implants. So I suppose she probably grabbed his head, one hand on each side of it. Then she noticed his contact lenses. This was the first time I'd heard of a forehand. I don't think I've got one, but I've got two forearms.
:wink:

Yep. You're right. You can't grab somebody's forehand.

:wink:

All episodes' name are phrased with a word "tow", like this:
TOW Sonogram at the End

What does TOW mean here?

thanks:)

What was Chandler talking about? Totally lost.

Joey: Since always. It's like dating language. Y'know, like 'It's not you' means 'It is you'.

CHANDLER: Or 'You're such a nice guy' means 'I'm gonna be dating leather-wearing alcoholics and complaining about them to you'.

TOW means The One With. One meaning episode. (The Episode With.)

Really?
My friend's advisor is about 70 now. He has this really old TV like you'll see in antique store:). I guess they don't like TV either.

Usually what do you do to kill time? I guess you spend a lot of time here:).
