Were you here waiting for me?
Chandler: Yeah, huh. I'm just uh, you know I'm just picking up some things for a party. (grabs a bag
off of the shelf)
Janice: Barley? What kind of
party serves barley?
Chandler: Well, I'm sorry if my friends aren't as sophisticated as yours.
Janice: Where is this party?
Chandler: Here in Chelsea.
Janice: Who's party is it?
Chandler: A woman's
Janice: What woman?!
Chandler: (shyly) Chelsea.
Janice: Okay, you know, one of two things is happening here. Either
you're seeing somebody behind my
back, which would make you the biggest jerk
on the planet. Or, else you're pretending that you're seeing
somebody, which just makes you so pathetic that I could start crying right here
in the cereal aisle. So like which of these two guys do you want to be? (Another
guy walks by.)
Chandler: Can I be that guy?
[Scene: Central Perk, Joey and Phoebe are there]
Phoebe: Okay, so we got some more good rejections, lots of stuff to work
Joey: Okay, shoot.
Phoebe: Okay, um, oh, the zoo commercial.
Joey: I didn't get it?
Phoebe: No. They said you "Weren't believable as a human being." So, you can
work on that.
Joey: Okay, what else?
Phoebe: Um, the off-Broadway play people said "You were pretty but dumb."
Phoebe: Oh no wait, I'm sorry, that's "pretty dumb."
Joey: Look, it's okay, no, no, no, really, look um, I really appreciate this
Pheebs, but I think I'm gonna have to go back to Estelle.

Central Park in New York City was designed by Frederick Law
Olmsted and Calvert Vaux in the 1850s. It was so popular that it inspired a
series of similar metropolitan parks all over the United States.
These skyscrapers border Central Park, in midtown Manhattan, New York City.
The park provides one of the few remaining green spaces in the city's dense
urban landscape. It is a popular location for outdoor concerts and athletic
events, including competitive foot races and recreational softball.
is one of the principal business thoroughfares of New York City, extending in a
generally north-south direction. Laid out in the early 17th century by the
Dutch, Broadway grew in length as the city developed from a small settlement on
the southern tip of Manhattan Island. It now extends 27 km (17 miles) to the
city's northern boundary in the Bronx. In lower Manhattan, where it passes
through the financial district, Broadway is the traditional route over which
national heroes and distinguished guests are escorted. It enters the heart of
the commercial and garment district at Herald Square on 34th Street. Between
42nd Street, where it passes through Times Square, and 50th Street, Broadway
forms the central thoroughfare of New York City's theater district. This stretch
is one of the most highly concentrated entertainment centers in the United
States, and includes official Broadway theaters, smaller off-Broadway
playhouses, movie theaters, restaurants, and bars. The city of New York has
attempted a major revitalization and development of the theater district since
the 1980s. Also located on Broadway are Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts
and Columbia University.
