If you go to the keychain, you can view password, but you need to know the machine password.  

Go to the keychain, click on passwords (left) then double click on the item you want to see the password for.  There is  a checkbox for "show password" that will prompt you for the machine password.

I don't believe you can print them. Buy if you friend is moving to a new Mac he can copy all his settings and passwords to the new Mac automatically using Migration Assistant.

When he first starts his new Mac it will ask him to connect it to the old Mac to transfer all data, apps, settings and passwords automatically.

You can't print them all at once, mainly for security. If you have lots to copy over, then strung has the best idea as this will take everything over.
