S01 E11 - TOW Mrs. Bing
TOW…Hand-Lickers, Freudian Nightmares, and Ungrateful Coma Guys
SIGNATURE BEVERAGE: ROSA PICANTE MARGARITA
It's TOW Mrs. Bing. She and Ross do some smoochin' after having too much tequila, so we know we wanted a tequila-based cocktail for this week's episode. Since Nora's a romance novelist, we thought some rose or other floral flavor would be nice. And considering how she gets a hankering for kung pao chicken after sex, we thought we'd add in some spice of our own! This Patron recipe proved to be perfect!
At first we thought this was a recipe featured on Top Chef, but as it turns out, they did have a Patron challenge, but this drink was not a part of it. http://www.bravotv.com/top-chef/photos/episode-12-dishes-patron-margaritas-and-guadalajaran-flavor
Cancer popcorn. Fancy salts. Dirty tequila. Dirtier guacamole. Angry ham sandwiches.
Cancer (microwave) popcorn while they’re watching Nora Bing on Jay Leno
Diacetyl is the chemical that used to be in microwave popcorn and gave popcorn factory workers bronchiolitis obliterans (aka “popcorn lung”). (http://www.lung.org/about-us/blog/2016/07/popcorn-lung-risk-ecigs.html) Now found in the majority of e-cigarette brands.
Just make your own and use fancy salts from SALT! (http://www.ritzcarlton.com/en/hotels/florida/amelia-island/dining/salt

Morgan Fairchild and Jay Leno
She was only 45 when she was playing Chandler’s mom!
There are still Christmas decorations up (lining the news stand, and a tree next to it)
Monica reading the newspaper to Coma Guy
How did Monica knit a sweater so fast?
Not that much of an age difference … she’s just a cougar!
She’s on a PAYPHONE checking for messages left AT THE HOTEL
The Code: Sister’s are okay, maybe a hot-looking aunt … but never a mom!
So it’s okay that Chandler dates Monica, right? ;)
Drawing over the head of the hospital bed -- diamond-shaped with symbols around it -- maybe meant to heal him? Did Phoebe draw it?
Rental video on top of TV (Ross tells Chandler)
We find out that Rachel’s middle name is Karen (A Woman Undone by Rachel Karen Greene)
“Do you think a man’s love stick can be liberated from its denim prison?”
Perhaps a subtle reference from Writers to Wardrobe to QUIT IT WITH ALL THE DENIM :)
When Coma Guy is a typical guy “We give, and we give, and...we...give… then we just get nothing back, then one day, you wake up, and it’s, see ya around!”
You know what, we thought you were different, but I guess it was just the coma
Joey says his mom gave birth to seven children, but throughout the rest of the series he mentions his seven sisters…
Light fixture over Monica’s kitchen table again, but don’t see the one above the living room!
NOT ON NETFLIX
Phoebe saying that she hates that they’re calling Coma Guy “John Doe” “It makes him sound like a deer, a female deer…” Monica interrupts “Oh, I was gonna stop”
Ross “I don’t get it - you don’t even know this guy”
Monica “I remember page 79 - Yeow” Joey, “Oh yeah the thing after the opera with the trick hip?”
Nora: Needless to say, he got a big tip -- Chandler: I think I’m having a stroke
Nora: I heard about the divorce … lesbian huh? Well it just goes to show: be careful what you wish for!
Ross: Well I’m gonna go to Tinker Town…
Nora says Ross is sexy, and the fact that he doesn’t know it makes him even sexier
Different scene intro when Nora says goodbye/Chandler confronts her; instead of voiceover, you see her put the books on the table, she says they’re autographed, gives him a goodbye kiss; also a little different when he confronts her … a longer pause and “Are we okay” from Nora
Phoebe: Why? She could have heaving beasts! … (then later) Wait! I just got to the part about her public hair!
