Storyline

First Ross takes Chandler's natural joking with pizza delivery girl Caitlin for 'flirting behind Monica's back', and actually tells her, just now they celebrate their 10 month anniversary, which starts a discussion whether flirting by men is innocent, not by females. Then Ross decides to demonstrate his flirtatious talent, which the others know to be abysmal, even conquering Rachel took him nine years. Meanwhile Joey brings over Nonnie, his Italian grandmother who doesn't speak any English but was his only relative who always believed in his career, to watch a Law and Order episode Joey has a speaking part in. Once he realizes his scene was actually cut out, everyone tries to fool her and thus spare them heartbreak. Phoebe can't return Monica's earrings, a gift from Chandler she wants to wear that evening, because Rachel borrowed and lost them, as usual. Ross's flirting lessons turn out to be of the 'how not to do it' variety but Rachel takes pity on him... Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

[after Chandler finds out that Monica still flirts with other men even though they're together]
Monica: Chandler, this actually bothers you?
Chandler: Yes, it does bother me. And I think it would bother a lot of people. Rachel, when you were going out with Ross, did it bother you when he flirted with other women?
Rachel: Uh, no, no, it bothered me when he *slept* with other women...

My favorite episode of my favorite show !
14 December 2006 | by (Lutry, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

"The One Where Ross Can't Flirt" is according to me the best episode of "Friends" or, if not, one of the best ones. And it's extremely difficult to choose an episode better than the other because, as everyone knows, each episode of this wonderful show is fantastic.

The plot of this episode is absolutely excellent ! Ross trying to flirt with Caitlin, the pizza delivery girl, talking of gas, Joey wanting to show his acting talent to his Italian grandmother and noticing that his scene has been cut, Rachel and Phoebe looking for Monica's ear rings and, of course, Chandler's hilarious jokes as usual to make this episode touch the perfection !
