Title: Unagi


1.Ross: Hi!

2.Phoebe: Hey!

3.Ross: Hey, what have you guys been up to?

4.Phoebe: Ohh! We went to a self-defense class today!

5.Ross: Wow!

6.Rachel: Yeah, kicking a guy in the crotch all morning really takes it out of ya!

7.Joey: Takes it out of you?

8.Phoebe: Now, we can kick anybody’s ass!

9.Rachel: Yeah!

10.Ross: After one class? I don’t think so.

11.Rachel: What? You wanna see me self-defend myself?! Go over there and pretend you’re a sexual predator! Go on! I dare ya!!

12.Ross: Well, of course you can defend yourself from an attack you know is coming, that’s not enough. Look, I studying kara-tay for a long time, and there’s a concept you should really be familiar with. It’s what the Japanese call unagi.

13.Rachel: Isn’t that a kind of sushi?

14.Ross: No, it’s a concept!

15.Phoebe: Yeah it is! It is! It’s freshwater eel!

16.Ross: All right, maybe it means that too…

17.Rachel: Ohh! I would kill for a salmon skin roll right now!

18.Ross: Y’know what? Fine! Get attacked! I don’t even care!

19.Phoebe: Come on Ross. We’re sorry. Please tell us what it is.

20.Ross: Unagi is a state of total awareness. Okay? Only by achieving true unagi can you be prepared for any danger that may befall you!

21.Phoebe: You mean in case someone is trying to steal your bamboo sleeping mat or your kettle of fish?

22.Ross: All I’m saying is, it’s one thing being prepared for an attack against like each other; whole other story being prepared for an attack, I don’t know, like a surprise!!

23.Ross: All right, you knew that one was coming, but that doesn’t mean you have unagi.

24.Rachel: Ooh! Ya’know what? If we made reservations, we could have unagi in about a half-hour.

25.Ross: Y’know what…

…………………………………………………………………

26.Ross: DANGER!!! DANGER!!!!!

27.Phoebe: Ross!!!

28.Rachel: What the hell was that?!

29.Ross: A lesson in the importance of unagi.

30.Phoebe: Ohh, you’re a freak!!

31.Ross: Perhaps. Now I’m curious, at what point during those girlish screams would you have begun to kick my ass?

32.Rachel: All right, so we weren’t prepared!

33.Ross: I’m sorry I had to take such drastic measures to make my point, but I—look, I just want you guys to be safe. DANGER!!!!! Ahhh, huh? Unagi.

…………………………………………………………………

34.Chandler: Hey.

35.Ross: Chandler. I sensed it was you.

36.Chandler: What?!

37.Ross: Unagi. I’m always aware.

38.Chandler: Okay, are you aware unagi is an eel?

Phoebe and Rachel: DANGER!!!!!

39.Rachel: Ahhhhh, salmon skin roll.

…………………………………………………………………

40.Phoebe: Pat Sajak?

41.Rachel: Yep!

42.Phoebe: Alex Trebek?

43.Rachel: Oh, of course!

44.Phoebe: Chuck Woolery?

45.Rachel: Definitely! Phoebe, you will not find a single game show host, whose ass I cannot kick.

…………………………………………………………………

46.Rachel: Say it!

47.Phoebe: Say we are unagi!

48.Ross: It’s not something you are! It’s something you have!

49.Rachel: Say it!

50.Ross: Y’know what? I can easily get out of this, but there is a chance you can get very, very hurt!

…………………………………………………………………

51.The Instructor: Okay ladies, that ends today’s class, and let’s remember, let’s be safe out there.

52.Ross: It’s a great class.

53.The Instructor: Thanks man.

54.Ross: Yeah, yeah, I was watching. Umm, hey, a couple of questions though. Umm, about that-that-that last move where the woman tripped you and then pinned you to the floor, what-what-what-what would you do next?

55.The Instructor: Well, she would take her keys and try to jam them…

56.Ross: No. No-no. No. What would you do next?

57.The Instructor: Who? Me the attacker?

58.Ross: Yes that’s right.

59.The Instructor: Why?

60.Ross: I tried attacking two women, did not work.

61.The Instructor: What?!

62.Ross: No, I mean it’s okay, I mean, they’re-they’re my friends. In fact, I-I-I was married to one of them.

63.The Instructor: Let me get this straight man, you attacked your ex-wife?!

64.Ross: Oh, no! No-no! No, I tried! But I couldn’t. That’s why I’m here. Maybe we could attack them together? That-that’s a no.

…………………………………………………………………

65.Ross: Ah-ha, nowhere to run!

66.Rachel: I don’t like sitting up here! I’m trying to go over…

67.Phoebe: No Rachel! They got here first!

68.Phoebe: Why is Ross doing that?

69.Ross: DANGER!!!!

70.Rachel: Oh my God! Why is he jumping on those women!

71.Phoebe: We should help him!

72.Rachel: I… Well, I don’t think they need any help.

73.Ross: ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!
