If you guys have time for one more game, I was thinking about a memory game. (You know, like the matching cards when we were kids?) It's simple -- the challenge is just to match a reference, plot point, or line of dialog that was used in 2 episodes. Triple point score if it's been recycled thrice. For instance:

The Scary Pigeon:
TOW Rachel's Phone Number
Monica: Scary pigeon’s back?
Chandler: It’s huge!

TOW The Lottery
Ross: Weird.. your psychic didn't mention anything about the scary pigeon...
Phoebe: As a matter of fact she said that's how I am going to die.

We don't have to be sticklers for episode titles. For instance:

Yemen
Carol says that Ben hasn't said "mama" yet, but she thinks he said "Yemen."
Chandler moves to Yemen to escape Janice.

And so on. Game on?

So Bullfrog, would it work with one poster giving a plot point and then a next poster providing the "match" so to speak and coming up with their own plot point or reference or line. So like I would say: Joey wore two belts in xyz episode. And someone else would post Richard Crosby (from Joey's movie) wore two belts and then post their own?

Oh, I like that even better! I was just thinking one person would provide both instances, but let's do your thing, joanne3482.

So here's one to start:

Oven Mitts
TOW the Chicken Pox
Rachel and Ross tape oven mitts around Phoebe and Ryan's hands to keep them from scratching.

Chandler's boss takes him to a strip club when Chandler lies and says that he and Monica are getting divorced,
Monica hires a prostitute for Chandler, thinking she was hiring a stripper.

(And kudos to joanne3482 for thinking of yet another pot reference that I hadn't thought of! I was thinking of Jon Lovitz showing up stoned, and when Rachel's boss was smoking and asked her if she gets high, with the whole "we're kidding!"/"me too!" exchange...and something else I already forgot.)

Dogs
Phoebe lets Joey dogsit "the happiest dog in the world" when he's sad about Rachel (and then he promptly gets the poor dog all depressed).
