According to Rachel
In which Rachel blows off an entire subcontinent
Rachel (singing the song from Lady and the Tramp): 'This is the night, it's a beautiful night, and they call it bella notte.' You know, that's the only Indian I know.
Leah: It's not Indian, it's Italian.
Rae: Same thing.
Leah (a mite sarcastically): I think there's a couple of million Indians who probably wouldn't agree with you.
Rachel, queen of the metaphor. Or simile. I can never get those straight.
Rachel, frustrated because whenever she invites a friend over to play, the friend inevitably gravitates to older sister Leah:
"It's like Leah's a fridge, and all my friends are magnets."
On the subject of cleaning up the toys in the basement
Rae: The basement looks fine. It's not like the Queen is coming over, or Josie, or Marsha Stewart.
