Ross: You think?! God, I, ah, I’m in hell. I mean what, what am I gonna do? Rachel’s all like,“I love you and, and let’s work on this” And all I can think about is,“what is she gonna do? What is she gonna say?”when I tell her what I did.

Chandler: Well, before we answer that, I think we should address the more important question. How dumb are you?

Ross: What?! Look, we’re trying to rebuild a relationship here, right. How am I supposed to do that here, without being totally honest with each other?
