Episode complete credited cast:
Monica Geller-Bing (as Courteney Cox Arquette)


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 they discover the baby's gender!
16 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Joey still likes Rachel, but is trying to convince himself that she is only his friend. He tries to talk about the subject with Chandler and Monica, but he doesn't feel comfortable enough, only saying random things. Monica and Chandler think that Joey is liking Phoebe, and Monica goes to talk to Phoebe about Joey, and this makes Phoebe goes to talk to Joey. Phoebe discovers that the person Joeys likes is in fact Rachel.

Monica tries to convince Chandler that baths are relaxing, spite of the fact that he is not a big fan. She prepares an amazing bath for him and Chandler likes it so much that he tries to do one for him alone in other time.

Rachel and Ross don't agree with the same names for their baby. They still don't know the baby's gender, but Ross thinks that Rachel knows and calls the doctor to let him know. Ross tells Rachel that the baby is a girl, but Rachel in fact wasn't aware of it.
