beating the philidor defense

hey all, im just wondering what the higher players think the best way to beat the philidor defense is? im a 2000 player and my friend plays it constantly as white and black. In case you dont know, im talking about
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6
     or if he is white
1.e4 e5 2.d3    and he will continue with moves like ..c6 and ..Qc7 and other passive moves as black and the same as white. Any suggestions? what are the main lines..i would think white should be able to crush the passive moves made by black or reverse.
Thanks for your time,
derek fisher
