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.

In a previous episode where Rachel asks if she can live with Phoebe, Phoebe claims to have a roommate named Denise (who is clearly fake). In this episode, Rachel moves in with Phoebe, and there is no explanation or other mention of Denise. See more »


Phoebe Buffay: I can see why running next to me would be embarrassing for you. Yeah. You're uptight.
Rachel Green: Hey, I am not. Whoa. I am not uptight. Man.

The One Where Phoebe Runs
17 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode shows very well why I like Phoebe. While she is a caring human being who wants everyone to be happy she is also someone who doesn't give a damn what others think of her. She wants to run this way? Then this is how she runs! Great, the best female character of the show

Also I like the scene where her and Rachel record the message. Very funny

It is also very amusing how Chandler messes up the position of the things in the apartment and Ross scares him by saying that Monica will be mad. Ross's "OMG she is going to sit on you!" was said so perfectly!

The story about Joey and his new roommate was pretty boring
