triangle Script

Joey: Okay, pick a card, any card. All right, now memorize it. Show it to everybody. Got it?

Monica: Um-mm.

Joey: All right, give it back to me. 5 of hearts.

Ross: Real magic does exist.

Rachel: Wow.

Monica: Wow. Joey, how do you do it?

Joey: I can’t tell you that, no.

Ross: Ah, somebody’s at the door on the ceiling.

Rachel: Noo, that’s our unbelievably loud upstairs neighbor.

Monica: He took up the carpet, and now you can hear everything.

Phoebe: Why don’t you go up there and ask him to ‘step lightly, please?’

Monica: I have like five times, but the guy is so charming that I go up there to yell and then I end up apologizing to him.

Phoebe: Ooh, that is silly. I’ll go up there. I’ll tell him to keep it down.

Monica: All right, be my guest.

Rachel: Good luck.

Joey: All right, all right, all right, all right, all right. If you really wanna know how I did it, I’ll show ya. When you handed me back the card, what you didn’t see was, I looked at it so fast it was invisible to the naked eye. I just did it. I just did it, again. Here, I’ll slow it down so that you guys can see it.

All: Oh, I got it.

Phoebe: Yeah, look I was with my friend downstairs and we hear everything up here that you do, and I am sick and tired...

Guy: Whoa, you are very beautiful.

Phoebe: Oh, thank you.
