Could you explain the red part to me with some examples thank you beforehand

(This is the writer: Rachel left her fiance an orthodontist on the alter, and became independent from her parents by doing waitressing at a cafe. Now she's kinda regret about the whole thing. )
Rachel: But see, it was a plan. Y'know, it was clear. It was figured out, and now everything's just kinda like...
Phoebe: Floopy ?
Rachel: Yeah.
Monica: So what, you're not the only one. I mean, half the time we don't know where we're going. You've just gotta figure at some point it's all gonna come together , and it's just gonna be... un-floppy.

Phoebe: Oh, like that's a word.

Rachel: Okay, but Monica, what if- what if it doesn't come together?
Monica: ...Pheebs?
Phoebe: Oh, well... 'cause.... you just... I don't like this question.
Rachel: Okay, see, see, you guys, what if we don't get magic beans? I mean, what if all we've got are.. beans?

[Scene: Monica and Rachel's, the slumber party continues.]
Rachel: I'm so sorry, you guys. I didn't mean to bring you down.
Monica: No, you were right. I don't have a plan. (There's a knock on the door.)
Pizza Guy: (yelling from outside) Pizza guy!
Rachel: Thank God. Food. (She goes to answer the door.)
Monica: Phoebe?
Phoebe: What?
Monica: Do you have a plan?
Phoebe: I don't even have a 'pla'.

Pizza Guy: Hi, one, uh, mushroom, green pepper and onion?
Rachel: (miserably) No, no, that's not what we ordered... We ordered a fat-free crust with extra cheese.

"Pla" is not a word.. She's making a joke, the idea is that not only do they not have a "plan," they don't even have a partial plan -- the first three letters of the word.
 
Crust refers to the part of the pizza with no topping. Depending on the context, it could mean the edges of the pizza which are not topped, or it could be a special dish served at some restaurants which is an untopped pizza. The point is that the order is rather unusual.
 
"Floppy," in this context mean unstable, soft, flexible.
The opposite would be "firm."

I think it is floopy,not floppy.

however, I failed to look up this word in the dictionary.

In some discussion about Friends the TV series, I found this:

If sb feels floopy, nothing is going right and they can't make sense of their life or the things that are happening to them.

I don't know if it's correct or not
