We’re watching some program on TV about Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius. Although it’s kind of a depressing show (summary: they didn’t die the way we’ve been taught they did, but the real way they died was just as tragic/painful) I’m cracking up because I keep thinking of the Friends episode where Joey buys the V volume of the encyclopedia.
RACHEL: So did you break up with Joanna?
CHANDLER: I think so.
JOEY: Well, it’s good thing you got out when you did, before she blew up like that Vesuvius.
ROSS: The volcano?
JOEY: Yeah. And speaking of volcanoes, man are they a violent igneous rock formation.
JOEY: Oh yeah, lava spewing, hot ash, of course some are dormant.
MONICA: Why are you talking about volcanoes all of the sudden?
JOEY: Well, we can talk about something else. What do you want to talk about? Vivisection? The Vasdeferens? The Vietnam War?
Sometimes, I’m pretty sure there’s a Friends quote for every situation.
