triangle Script

Joey? Where are the Jell-O shots?
I don't know. Chandler's supposed to be passing them-- Chandler!
Well, somebody's feeling better.
Stick out your tongue!
Take off your shirt!
Oh, my!
Oh, my God! How many did you have? They're pure vodka.
Yeah, Jell-O. Just like Mom used to make.
Joey! Happy birthday!
Ok. How many of that girl are you seeing?
How hammered are you? These are Joey's sisters.
Hi, Joey's sisters!
What're we drinking over here?
Well, I have a vodka and cranberry juice.
No kidding? That's the same drink I made myself right after I shot my husband.
Okay, I don't know how to talk to you.
What are you doing?
I'm taking my ex-girlfriend off my speed dialer.
No, it's a good thing. Why must we dial so speedily anyway? Why rush through life? Why can't we savor the precious moments? Those are some huge breasts you have!

How you feeling?
Well, my apartment isn't there anymore because I drank it.
Where'd you go? We lost you after you opened up all the presents.
I ended up in the storage room, and not alone.
No "woo-hooing. " No "woo-hooing. "
Why, what happened?
I fooled around with Joey's sister. That's not the worst part.
What is the worst part?
I can't remember which sister.
You see what men do? Don't tell me men are nice. This is men!

Are you insane? I mean Joey's gonna kill you. He's actually gonna kill you dead.
Ok! You don't think I thought of that?
How can you not know which one?
That's unbelievable.
I mean was it Gina?
Which one's Gina?
The dark, big hair, with airplane earrings.
No no no. That's not Gina, that's Zina.
Do you See? You can't tell which is which either!
We didn't fool around with any of them.
Vernoica. Look! It's got to be Veronica. The girl in the red skirt. I definitely stuck my tongue down her throat!
That was me.
Look, when I've been drinking, sometimes I tend to get a little overly friendly... and I'm sorry.
That's okay.
That's all right.
That's okay.
Can I talk to you for a second?
Hey, Joey!
Come on.
Why can't we talk in here... with witnesses?
I just got off the phone with my sister.
Which one?
Mary Angela.
Mary Angela.
Now which one is she again?
Why don't you ask Chandler. Cause he fooled around with her. She told me you said you could really fall for her. Now is that true, or are you just getting over Janice by groping my sister?
It's gotta be the first one.
Really? That's great! You and my sister, sitting in a tree!
Yep, I'm in a tree.

"Dear Mary Angela: Hi, how's it going? This is the hardest letter I've ever had to write."

What the hell's the matter with you? How do think Joey's gonna react when he finds out that blew off his sister with a letter?
Well, that's the part where you tell him that I moved to France... when actually I'll be in Cuba.
Look, you've got to do this yourself, ok? In person. At least you know her name. You just go to the house and ask for Mary Angela ok?. When whichever one she is comes to the door, you take her
for a walk, you let her down easy.
What if Mary Angela comes to the door and I ask for Mary Angela?
Where in Cuba?
