Storyline

Joey's first fan-mail -for his character, Dr. Drake Ramore- is from Erika Ford, who sounds like a crazy stalker, so Chandler and he are scared when she turns up, but given her looks he accepts to dine together- enough for her to think she's Drake's fiancée. Hunky Rob Donan invites Phoebe to play songs for kids in the public library, but her brutally honest lyrics shock the parents. After seeing a monkey like Marcel in a commercial, Ross decides to visit him in the San Diego Zoo, where he's officially told the capucin died but hears the truth from a hush-hush caretaker: he's in a movie being shot in New York so they all go there...

A Return To Form
11 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A return to form for "Friends" after a few so so episodes, helped in no small part by a couple of guest stars Plot In A Paragraph: Joey is initially delighted to get his very own stalker, especially when he sees how hot she is (Brooke Sheilds) and he goes on a date with her. Meanwhile Phoebe is asked to sing songs for some children at a local school by a teacher (Chris Isaac) however, whilst ppular with the kids, the parents are less than thrilled by her honest songs. Elsewhere Ross tries to track down Marcel his former pet monkey who used to live with him.

I'm glad the show is back on track, and this has been one of the best episodes for a while
