Heidi Beck ...
The Delivery Room Nurse


Phoebe is in hospital to give birth to the triplets slightly early. Monica barely covered up to Rachel that she was with Chandler who found them two hot male nurses to date. When Chandler panics and says he and Monica are only 'messing around' they agree to see other people but neither actually likes the pact. Phoebe dislikes her doctor because he openly adores Fonzie from Happy Days. To Rachel's horror Phoebe is considering 'keeping one' of the babies. Joey has a sudden attack of pain and is diagnosed with kidney stones, and squashes Ross during a very painful procedure. To Chandler's horror, the third baby is still named after him, even when it turns out the baby is a girl. Written by KGF Vissers

Pheobe's Birth
31 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A classic one, and a change of scenery. In the episode before, after they had decided to take Pheobe away for the weekend her waters broke and she was going to be giving birth then the next episode sees them rushing into hospital. Chandler and Monica arrive late and are quizzed by the gang to where they have been. The doctor Pheobe wanted was not available so the "Fonzie" doctor comes in. Full of laughs this episode is. Rachel finds herself and Monica two cute nurses to go out with, but Monica refuses as she is secretly with Chandler. Joey misses the birth because he is taken in because he had kidney stones. Another funny bit when the other boy baby turns out to be a girl baby and they still name it Chandler. Frank - "Chandler's a girl" Chandler - "WOW..Kindergarten Flashback" Another funny and also emotional episode especially at the end when she realises she has to give up the babies in spite on asking Rachel if she would ask Frank and Alice if she could keep one. A good one.
