    I know there's at least one or two people on this forum who watches "Friends". Anyways, I want to know if anybody caught tonight's episode of "Friends" on the East Coast after Bush's speech. I just wanted to know, did Phoebe say the word shit? I think she did, but my brother swears she said shoot instead. They're two totally different sounding words. I know that on "ER" they've said the word fuck once or twice in the same episode.

    I haven't seen the episode of Friends in question (we won't get it til circa February next year, sob, sob) but I'd doubt it; Friends is usually pretty careful about swearing. However, what amuses us Brits is Friend's use of the word 'wank' which presumably isn't particularly offensive in US English but in Brit English it most definitely is (almost up there with the f word in terms of seriousness).

    I don't know about "shit", but Phoebe said "motherf-" in last week's episode. Not the whole word of course, but still. It susprised me a little.

    I don't watch ER regularly, so no idea if they've ever said "shit." Ditto for friends.
    However, I am 100% sure that one of Mark Harmon's lines on an episode of Chigago Hope contained the word "shit," fully and completely.

    Dome, I know what you're talking about. It sounded like she said that word at one point during the show.

    I think Pheobe did say that word. I forgot all about it until now but I do remember wondering to myself if she actually said it.

    Ditto for hearing her say the word Shit. Im fairly sure that since the show is taped they would have edited it out had she said it though.

    I'm prety sure I heard "shit" on the Sopranos. No, really, I do remember Jennifer Aniston saying on Friends that she loved doing the 69 position.

    Rachel doesn't say this directly iirc.
    But during the scene when Monika tells Chandler about a woman's erogenous zones (she paints them on a piece of paper) Chandler is embarassed that he didn't know them all. To get out of it he says: "I was looking at it upside down". Then Rachel says: "Sometimes that helps".
    Maybe that's what you ment? I cannot recall her saying this directly. Also that would be totally "un-friends".
