mooch off of someoneexpect someone to pay your expenses [dict]

On 'Friends', Joey and Ross were mistaken to think that Chandler shunned them because he was mad about their not buying him a Knicks game ticket. "We are supposed to buy him a ticket?" Joey said to Ross, "That guy is always mooching off of us." It seems, according to dictionary.com, that "mooch off someone" without "of" is also correct.
