Diana Reynolds: “Oh! Uh, oh! Uh… did you know that Ross and I used to, uh… uh… uh-uh… date? Oh! Oh…!”

Gabby Franklin: Yeah! I think it’s more like… [ parting her hair back ] “Oh! Okay! Yeah! Oh! Do you guys know Ross? He’s a good guy! Oh, oh! Hey!”

Mark Leonard: Uh, yeah, but maybe it’s more like… “Oh! Oh… uh… So you and Ross are, um… [ he flexes his arms ] Dating! [ he pulls his hair back ] Oh! Oh!”

Paul Nevins: Oh, my bad! I didn’t realize this was a Jabba the Hut competition! Also: Who the hell is ROSS?!!

Radley Cooper: Hey, hey, hey! You know something? You’re a real jerk! You know, you may look exactly like Jennifer Aniston…

Ted Pelms: [ missing his cue ] …On the outside! But on the INSIDE… you’re a total Helen Keller!

Radley Cooper: Yeah!

Ted Pelms: That’s why you got Eighth place!

Radley Cooper: What?

Paul Nevins: You’re right. You’re right, Radley.

Radley Cooper: Yeah!

Paul Nevins: You’re right, Ted. I’ve been a monster here tonight. The truth is… This hasn’t been my day… my week… my month… or even my year.

Radley Cooper: I’ll be there for ya’.

Ted Pelms: And I’ll be there for you, too, because… in the immortal words of the “Friends” theme song: [ singing ] “Keep smiling…”

Radley Cooper: “Keep shining…”

Paul Nevins: “Knowing you can always count on me…”

Emcee: That’s not the “Friends” theme, guys.

Radley Cooper: It’s not?

Together: “That’s what friends are forrrrrrr!!!”

Emcee: That’s Dionne Warwick.

Together: “In good times…”

[ the other winners appear onstage ]

Everyone: “In bad times,
