Joey finds sexy Janine, a dancer from Australia, as a roommate. Rachel and Phoebe go jogging together to bond. Phoebe runs like an elephant because it makes running a lot more fun but Rachel doesn't want to go jogging with her anymore because she is embarrassing. Joey can't flirt with Janine because they live together and it would be too complicated. Chandler finds out how obsessed Monica is with everything and he has to move the furniture back to how it was before he moved it. Joey is drawn to Janine and has to find a way to repel her. But Janine tells him she doesn't feel attracted to him anyway. Rachel tries Phoebe's way of running and feels so free and great doing it that she doesn't care about people staring.

Phoebe runs like an idiot
29 May 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rachel moves to Phoebe's apartment and invites her(Phoebe) to run with her(Rachel) at the park. The problem is that Phoebe runs in a strange way, making Rachel stays ashamed to be near Phoebe. So Rachel pretends that she is hurt and cannot run anymore( But she goes run without Phoebe know).

Joey introduces Janine to the Friends, his new roommate. She is a hot dancer from Australia, and Joey accepted her to live with him specially because she is beautiful. Ross stays interested on her, making Joey angry. All the Friends tell Joey that he cannot go out with her now that they are living together, to avoid awkward moments. Joey never thought about that, and tries to not watch Janine doing her exercises or even touch her.

Chandler tries to make a surprise to Monica cleaning all their house, but Ross tells him that this surprise will make Monica angry, since she is neurotic about cleaning and organizing her stuff. Chandler stays desperate to put everything in the right place before Monica arrives home.
