Episode cast overview:
Monica Geller (as Courteney Cox Arquette)
Joey Tribbiani (as Matt Le Blanc)
Larry Cox ...
Phoebe's Co-worker


In the Friends' continuing imagination, fat Monica dates pedantic Dr. Roger, again without result. She exchanges desperate conquest talk with Chandler and ends up in bed with him. Ross still doesn't get it even when Carole is courted by Susan at his place. Rachel almost cheats on her husband with star Joey, then finds Barry in bed with the dog-walker. She bites Ross's head off for being a man too and makes Ross understand Carol must be a lesbian. Workaholic Phoebe slips out of hospital, only to hear she was just fired. Written by KGF Vissers

The One That Could Have Been
18 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode we see how their "what if" stories continue

I love the Ross's one. How he is all excited when Susan comes and how he tells about it to Joey. He tries to make it look so exciting and yet towards the end he can't hide that he was very bored and more excited in the sandwich he made himself. David Schwimmer is very cute during this conversation. I also like how he discovers that his wife must be gay

Actually at the end pretty much all of them end up where they are now, besides Joey and Monica (weightwise i mean). Chandler is with Monica at the end. Phoebe loses the job and gets away from all the stress. And Rachel's marriage with barry gets ruined
