Ross: I’ve seen her at work, but I always figured, ah-huh? But, uh, I made her dinner. We had a great time. And we’re going out again tomorrow.
Rachel: Well maybe she and her friends are just having a contest to see who can bring home the biggest geek.
Ross: Fine by me; hope she wins.

David Schwimmer and Jennifer Aniston in Friends (1993 – 2003), one of the all-time great sitcoms. I’m a huge fan of Joey, Chandler, Monica, Pheobe and of course, Ross and Rachel. You can find another great joke from the New-York set show here and here.

And there’s been quite an array of jokes in the eighth season so far, with a ninth series booked, and a film in the works.

“A great sorrow, and one that I am only beginning to understand: we don’t get to choose our own hearts. We can’t make ourselves want what’s good for us or what’s good for other people. We don’t get to choose the people we are.”

As said by the highly reflective Theodore Decker in The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt (2013). The Pulitzer Prize winning novel tells of a 13 year’s old struggle to recover after a tragic incident, and his long-running connection with a painting by Carel Fabritius. You can find my review of The Secret History, Tartt’s debut novel here.
