Q: O que significa Joey: OK, ok, my weirdest place would have to be... the women's room on the second floor of the New York City public library.?
A: @change777
You're watching Friends. haha.
"Would have to" normally is a way for person to not explicitly make a choice. Almost as if they're unsure.
In this case, based upon Joey's past of multiple partners, it could be a way of him saying, "I think this is the weirdest place I've ever had sex, but I've had sex so many times, I'm really not sure. This time just happens to stick out to me."

Monica: Boy, I know they say that you can't change your parents. Boy, if you could- (To Ross) -I'd want yours.

In 'I know they say that you can't change your parents.', who are 'they'?
A: "They" in this case is just referring to people in general. You could change "they" with "people" in that sentence and the meaning doesn't change
You'll see in a lot of English expressions that the general public or unspecified people are referred to as "they"
Q: Joey : Yeah, I'm an actor.
Rachel : Wow! Would i have seen you in anything?
Joey : I doubt it. Mostly regional work.
Monica : Oh wait, unless you happened to catch the Reruns' production of Pinocchio.

i don't know what Monica means in that ..
if Monica said more about that like "Oh wait, unless you happened to catch the Reruns' production of Pinocchio, you didn't see him.", i could understand but .. without "you didn't see him" in that .. i don't know that could it be used only "unless" ..

(i am not good at English .. so it's so dirty (grammatically) that you read .. but please help me TT Thanks in advance.)
A: If the context is already established, native speakers often leave out redundant information. Rachel has established the context as acting roles she might have seen Joey in. Between her statement and Monica's, the subject hasn't changed. So Monica doesn't need to say "you didn't see him"
Q: Joey :That's a thinker. (from Friends)
Does he mean something is hard to understand ? Thanks
A: Yes, I'm assuming he's trying to say that something requires him to think about it a lot, so then it would be hard to understand too
