Why in Database: There are seven to nine turtle references in this series. This discrepancy is due to the fact that one appearance is only in the DVD version of the episode, and one appearance is kinda double, i.e. first it is normally in the episode and then one episode is “clip show” that uses multiple fragments from earlier episodes, including song with the mention of the turtle.

Sezon 1, odcinek 1 – The One Where Monica Gets a Roommate (1994) – Already in the first episode there is one quote with an ambiguous reference:

I take credit for Paul. Before me, there was no snap in his turtle for two years.

Sezon 1, odcinek 9 – The One Where Underdog Gets Away (1994) – One of the characters reads to his unborn child a book “Yertle the Turtle“, book lying on the table is noticed by another character:

Hey, Yertle the Turtle! A classic.

Sezon 3, odcinek 12 – The One with All the Jealousy (1997) – One character brings many different handbags, including one with turtles. The person looking for purse however say,s that she is afraid of turtles:

You’re welcome. Please want the one with the turtles.
– No, turtles scare me. I don’t need that today.

Sezon 3, odcinek 25 – The One at the Beach (1997) – Sea turtles mentioned in the sex dialogue:

I don’t know what they were doing, but… sea turtles actually came up to the house.

Sezon 5, odcinek 5 – The One with the Kips (1998) – Unusual, because only in the uncut version that was released on the DVD we have the mention of a turtle. This fragment is missing from the TV version of episode:

Well, Davey’s still pining after LaPooh… …but, you know, he’s a tough little turtle.

Sezon 7, odcinek 10 – The One with the Holiday Armadillo (2000) – One of the characters wants to dress up in something in christmas style, but the most suitable offer in the rental shop turns out to be… an armadillo outfit. So he plays this role, explaining that he is Santa’s helper. When another character disguised as Santa appears, hhe asks him what he is doing here, mistaking him for a “Weird Turtle Man”:

What are you doing here……Weird Turtle Man?

Sezon 8, odcinek 20 – The One with the Baby Shower (2002) – The heroes play a quiz (one has to be the showrunnr of one and he prepares in this way), when one delays the answer, another mentions “Time Turtle”, probably some device to measure time for answer:

Tell it to the Time Turtle!

Sezon 9, odcinek 10 – The One with Christmas in Tulsa (2002) – This is an episode in which a large part are fragments of previous episodes, including 7×10 which we describe above:

What are you doing here……Weird Turtle Man?

Sezon 9, odcinek 24 – The One in Barbados: Part 2 (2003) – In one dialogue, one of the characters tells about snorkeling with turtles:

– There you are.
– Hey. Listen. As soon as it stops raining, we have got to go snorkeling. Some kid told me about this sea turtle. If you blow bubbles in his face, he chases you.
– I’m sorry, I can’t. I’m running a discussion group all afternoon.
– That’s okay. I’ll find someone else to do it. I’d do it alone, but… I don’t know what happens if the sea turtle catches you.
