Excerpt from the TV Show Friends - #165

Joey: All right. [gets up]

Monica: [stopping him] No! Joey, we swore we’d never tell!

Chandler: [running over and joining Monica] They’ll never understand!

Joey: Well, we have to say something! We have to get it out! It’s eating me alive!! Monica got stung by a jellyfish.

Monica: [interrupting] All right!! All right. [walks slowly into the living room] I got stung. Stung bad. I couldn’t stand. I-I couldn’t walk.

Chandler: [following Monica] We were two miles from the house. Scared and alone. We didn’t think we could make it. [He goes to put his hands on Monica’s shoulders but for some reason can quite complete the action and pulls back.]

Monica: I was in too much pain.

Joey: And I was tired from digging the huge hole!

Chandler: And then Joey remembered something.

Joey: I’d seen this thing on The Discovery Channel…

Ross: Wait a minute! I saw that! On The Discovery Channel, yeah! About jellyfish and how if you… [stops suddenly and turns to look at Monica] Ewwww!! You peed on yourself?!

Phoebe and Rachel: Ewwww!!

Monica: You can’t say that!! You-you don’t know!! I mean I thought I was gonna pass out from the pain! Anyway I-I tried, but I-I couldn’t…bend that way. So… [looks at Joey.]

Phoebe, Ross, and Rachel: [turning to look at Joey] Ewwww!!

Joey: That’s right I stepped up! She’s my friend and she needed help! And if I had too, I’d pee on anyone of you! Only, uhh, I couldn’t. I got the stage fright. I wanted to help, but there was too much pressure. So-so I uh, I turned to Chandler.

Chandler: [wails loudly into his hands] Joey kept screaming at me: “Do it now! Do it!! Do it! Do it now!!”. Sometimes late at night I can still hear the screaming.

Joey: [laughs] That’s cause sometimes I just do it through my wall to freak you out.
