After his openhearted evening with Rachel, Joey finds it impossible to go back to thinking about her as just a friend, yet he can't talk about it, not even to Chandler. As Joey rambles, only shutting up when Phoebe enters make Monica concludes he must be in love with Phoebe. Considering baby names, parents to be Ross and Rachel find no word in common except 'veto'! They agree not to ask the child's sex, yet Ross notices the gynecologist takes a peak, sod asks the doc afterward. After Chandler was unable to understand why Monica loves taking an elaborate bath, she lures him into trying a perfect combination of scents and salts by incorporating a model navy 'boat' and he's hooked, enough to steal her next bath by jumping in before she can. When Joey barges in the bathroom, the boat gets a more modest purpose. Written by KGF Vissers

The One Where Chandler Takes a Bath
3 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The part where Chandler takes the bath is very funny. Not only because he looks very cute surrounded by all the bubbles, but also the scene where everyone gets into their bathroom and ends up to see a part of Chandler they didn't really want to see

The whole story with Joey was funny as well. I like the whole dialogue about "rules" and London. And how Monica and Chandler were figuring out what he meant. Although it made me sad he didn't mean Phoebe. I always wanted those two to hook up

And we got some laughs from Ross and Rachel name choosing. And we also know now that they will have a girl!
