From Friends: The One With The Ultimate Fighting Champion

Monica: He [Pete] wanted to tell me he’s gonna compete is some ultimate fighting competition thingy ... it's like wrestling ...


Phoebe: [intrigued] Oh?!

Monica: Yeah, but without the costumes.

Phoebe: [disappointed] Oh.

Phoebe was immediately intrigued then disappointed. I know that girls like fashion and costumes, but I think Phoebe was far too intrigued by the idea.

Was this a play on the fact that girls (in general) are interested "wrestler's costumes" or a joke that was somehow specific to Phoebe?

Phoebe has shown a long-standing interest in men in extravagant costumes, notably marrying a professional (gay) ice-dancer.
