[Scene: Rachel and Monica’s, Phoebe, Ross, and Rachel are eating breakfast.]

PHOEBE: See, I-I think that one that Elton John wrote for, um, that guy on Who’s The Boss.

Tupelo Honey L The Way We WereWho’s The Boss:老友们在谈论哪首歌曲是最浪漫的。罗斯说是爱尔兰民谣歌手范·莫里森(Van Morrison)的《土波罗蜜(Tupelo Honey)》,而瑞秋则说是影片《往日情怀》当中那首同名主题曲《往日情怀(The Way We Were)》。 菲比则提到了埃尔顿·约翰曾经为九十年代早期红过的电视连续剧《妙管家(Who’s The Boss)》中的演员托尼·丹泽(Tony Danza)写过一首歌,众人惊问,那是什么歌曲?菲比就唱了起来:抱紧我,托尼·丹泽(Hold me close Tony Danza)原来,这完全是菲比把歌词听错了,埃尔顿·约翰确实写过一首叫做《飞燕舞者(Tiny Dancer)》的歌,里面的歌词有一句是:抱紧我,飞燕舞者(Hold me closeTiny Dancer)”/ See, I-I think that one that Elton John wrote for, um, that guy on Who’s The Boss. What song was that, Pheebs? (singing) Hold me close, young Tony Dan-za: Actually, Phoebe is talking about Elton John’s hit song Tiny Dancer in which real lyrics go “ Hold me close, young Tiny Dancer.” However, as a freaking funny gal, she sang the song “ hold me close, Tony  Danza”  on purpose, because she joked Tony Danza who is a famous US actor starred in TV series: Who’s the boss (妙管家)
RACHEL: What song was that, Pheebs?

PHOEBE: (singing) Hold me close抱紧我, young Tony Dan-za.

Mount Rushmore is well known for its 60-foot sculptured busts(雕刻半身像)of  Presidents  George  Washington,  Thomas  Jefferson,  Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln to represent the first 150 years of American history.

CHANDLER: You know, you should really go on this show. All right, listen, I got three tickets to the Rangers tonight.
What’d ya’ say?

CHANDLER: Well, there you go.

JOEY: Oh, hey. Come on man, don’t look at me like that, she used to drive you nuts before too, remember?

capital adj.大写的

JOEY: Look, what do you want me to say?

CHANDLER: I want you to say that you like her!

JOEY: I can’t. It’s like this chemical thing, you know. Every time she starts laughing, I just wanna (grimaces and tenses up) pull my arm off just so that I can have something to throw at her.

tense up紧张

CHANDLER: Thanks for trying. (grabs the ticket and starts to leave) Oh, and by the way there is no Count Rushmore!

JOEY: Yeah, then-then who’s the guy that painted the faces on the mountain? (Chandler gives him a look like ‘You stupid idiot!’)


[Scene: Monica and Rachel’s, Rachel and Ross are entering]

ROSS: How could you have told her?

RACHEL: Ross, I didn’t think it would that big of a deal.

ROSS: Oh, she didn’t think it would be that big of deal.

RACHEL: Okay, who are you talking to when you do that?

ROSS: Look, that was supposed to be like a private, personal thing between us.

RACHEL: Were both of those Joey?

ROSS: Yeah. Look, you don’t, you don’t talk about like, you know, your girlfriend and the intimate stuff you, you do with her.

RACHEL: Not even with your best friend.

ROSS: Noo!
