203 海先生之死
钱德说现女友鼻孔大得可以看见她的脑汁儿所以甩掉了她
——他总是善于用这种表面化的理由来逃避真正的男女关系。
海先生又上楼来抱怨噪音太大,吵到他的鸟儿了(他真的喂鸟了吗?)
菲比、瑞秋和乔伊模仿珍妮丝。
海先生死了,手里仍然握着扫帚。
很显然他是在捅楼顶抗议时猝死的。
菲比不相信进化论,这可急坏了罗斯;
他相信作为科研人员他有义务对菲比进行科普教育。
律师前来宣布,瑞秋和莫妮卡继承海先生的全部遗产;
清理遗产时,大伙发现海先生年轻时相当有趣。
钱德意识到自己和海先生惊人的相似,而闷闷不乐。
为了不像海先生一样在抑郁孤独中终老此生,他抓起他最后的救命稻草,打电话给珍妮丝……
没想到珍妮丝已经等不及他,和别人结婚并且有孕了。
瑞秋看上了海先生的贝壳台灯,莫妮卡说“我的”公寓里已经有台灯够用了,
瑞秋埋怨莫妮卡并没有把她当成自家人。


CHANDLER: Hey.

MONICA: So how was Joan?

CHANDLER: I broke up with her.

Ross:Don’t tell me,because of the big nostril thing?

nostril n.鼻孔

CHANDLER: They were huge. When she sneezed, bats flew out of them.

sneeze n.喷嚏vi.打喷嚏

RACHEL: Come on, they were not that huge.

ROSS: Not hating Yanni is not a real正当的 reason.

Yanni:老友们要求钱德勒举出一个他以正当理由提出分手的人,钱德勒说了一个名字,但罗斯马上说:不恨雅尼并不算一个真正的理由。雅尼是一个希腊籍的钢琴师,他曾经在中国的紫禁城演出过。但由于他没有受过什么正规的音乐训练,因此一些比较正宗的乐迷都不太喜欢他,钱德勒显然就讨厌他,因此他甩掉了不太讨厌雅尼的女友。

MONICA: Hello, Mr. Heckles.

MR. HECKLES: You’re doing it again.

MONICA: Mr. Heckles.

RACHEL: How did this happen?

MR. TREEGER: He musta been sweepin’. They found a broom in his hand.

CHANDLER: Ok, Phoebe.

PHOEBE: Nah. Not really.

ROSS: You don’t believe in evolution?
