My levels of IQ stand as lofty as that of Paris Hilton's pet pomeranian and my knowledge of current affairs is as deep as Mandira Bedi's of cricket. I mostly ramble about the trivialities of my everyday life, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, friends n family, movies, cricket; basically thoughts that would enter the mind of any Sita, Gita or Rita.

Note: I was busy drooling over the pages of Playboy during my English classes in school. So please bare with any grammatical blunders or the obvious lack of classic literary writing. (I was a little confused between the selection of 'bear' and 'bare' in the sentence above so I resorted to my favorite inky-pinky-ponky routine)

If you happen to pass by, feel free to register your presence. coz yeh duniya bahot chhoti hai aur yeh zindagi bahot lambi. Kya pata, someday somewhere, you and I might end up discussing about it over a cup of garam garam masala tea.

THE adoption letter: Classic Joey

Season 10. Episode 5: The One Where Rachel's Sister Babysits.
Script courtesy http://www.livesinabox.com/friends/

Monica: Hey Rach, the adoption agency needs letters of recommendation and we were wondering if you would write one for us.

Rachel: Of course, I'd be honored!

Chandler: Thanks!

Monica: Thank you!

(Joey looks at them, disappointed about their decision)

Joey: U-U-Um, I think there's been an oversight.

Chandler: Joey, we would've asked you, we just thought you wouldn't be interested.

Monica: Yeah, it's just we don't think of you as really being so much "with the words".

Joey: Whoo-weh hey weh-hey whoo hey!!

Monica: Clearly we were wrong.

Joey: I gotta a lot of nice stuff to say about you guys, ok? And I know how much you wanna have a baby, you know, and I would love to help you get one.

Monica: You know what? Then, Joey, we want you to do it.

Joey: Thank you! Alright, let me see how I'm gonna start... "Dear baby adoption decider people..."

Chandler: So excited about your letter!


Ross: What... what you working on?

Joey: (using a laptop) Oh, Monica and Chandler's recommendation. I want it to sound smart but.. I don't know any big words or anything, so...

Ross: Why don't you use your Thesaurus?

Joey: What did I just say?

Ross: Watch. (he takes the laptop) Here, you ehm... You highlight the word you want to change.
Go under Tools and the Thesaurus generates... 'gives'... 'gives' a whole list of choices. You can pick the word that sounds smartest.

Joey: Oh my God, that's great! I'm smart!! No, no, I'm... (he uses the Thesaurus) "brainy, bright, clever", I love this thing! Look out ladies, Joey Tribbiani's got the whole package!!


Joey: Hey, finished my recommendation. (he hands it over to Chandler) Here. And I think you’ll be very, very happy. It’s the longest I ever spent on a computer without looking at porn.

Chandler: (reading) I don’t... uh... understand.

Joey: (sounding very proud of himself) Some of the words are a little too sophisticated for ya?

Monica: (also reading it) It doesn’t make any sense.

Joey: Of course it does! It’s smart! I used the the-saurus!

Chandler: On every word?

Joey: Yep!

Monica: Alright, what was this sentence originally? (shows the sentence to Joey)

Joey: Oh, ‘They are warm, nice, people with big hearts’.

Chandler: And that became ‘they are humid prepossessing Homo Sapiens with full sized aortic pumps...?

Joey: Yeah, yeah and hey, I really mean it, dude.

Monica: Hey Joey, I don’t think we can use this.

Joey: Why not?

Monica: Well, because you signed it baby kangaroo Tribbiani (Joey makes a 'and-what’s-wrong-with-that' look). Hey, why don’t you stop worrying about sounding smart and just be yourself!

Chandler: You know what? You don’t need a thesaurus, just write from here, (points at his own heart) your full sized aortic pump.

Maryum Javaid said...

Maryum Javaid said...

Urv said...

~maryum javaid
Yup u did tell about ur love for him :) Hmm.. There can't be anything like F.R.I.E.N.D.S. I sooo wish that the show never ended. Just like so many others :D

Thanks :) The pic is mine.. Taken at the same beach as the pic in the blog header..

Maryum Javaid said...

Adee said...


one more "F.RI.E.N.D.S fan" here..

as far as the show goes, it was a good attempt, but i didnt like it that much.. simply because in F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Joey was a part of a Gang (achi wali), but in the other show, it was just...... JOEY! the absence of the other five didnt complete Joey's character.

Urv said...

I too agree with stupid :)
True. Can't just get enough of FRIENDS

Welcome to the gang :D Hmm.. Thats true.. FRIENDS was about all of em doing their bits together.. Thats what made it work..

Adee said...

check me blog...

aap ka hukum saar aakho par... hehehe

Express said...

hey! who can have enuff of F.R.I.E.N.D.S!

man, joey is the best! but phoebe is bestest!

amazing episode, but then any episode has so many awesome lines that even 1 whole blog wont be enough if v dedicated it to them!

Urv said...

Haan ji. Thank you ji :)

Hmm.. Ohkay. All FRIENDS fanatics have the same opinion :)

ceedy said...

Urv said...

Yeah man Kramer was good too! :D Awesome weird acting.. And the hair n all.. And making a slamming thru the door entry..

Deepti said...

With my full-sized aortic pump, I can tell you I really enjoyed this post, since you have a label for it, I am guessing there are more such posts in the past?

To answer a question you have asked all a long time back way above in the list, I have watched a few episodes of Joey. They are ok, not all that good. To me, Joey looks lost without the rest of them (maybe, it's just me).

Urv said...

Welcome to the blog :D
There are not many under the label but you can expect more in the future :)

//To me, Joey looks lost without the rest of them (maybe, it's just me).

Its not only you, everybody is of the same opinion..

Nidhi said...

Hey ! Am a F.R.I.E.N.D.S addict... Joey Rocks !! Though I cou;dn't follow Joey :(

Back in college hostel.. I used to watch FRIENDS episodes back to back... once outta college and with this job life I kinda miss all that fun :(

Though I still am very faithful to FRIENDS :) If not many episodes.. I still manage to watch atleast 1 or 2 episodes everyday :)

Urv said...

One more F.R.I.E.N.D.S fanatic :)

In school/college days, I used to watch the same episode 3 times a day.. Morning, evening, night :D

Even today, when I start an episode, I almost end up seeing half the season episodes :)

Nidhi said...

Need I say, you brought my coll days back :D

Post reaching home yesterday... I started watching Season 1 .. I started at around 8 PM and I stayed awake the whole night... Till 8:30 am in the morning today I was watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S Season 1 :D

Oooh La La La... I finished Season 1 :D

Urv said...

*Bows to an ardent F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan*
