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

The One Where Ross Can't Flirt
15 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Ross's flirting in this episode is just great. All the talk about gas and how he likes 8 year old boys. It is also great how he is trying to practise his flirting skills on Phoebe but it doesn't work out too good either. And it is very sweet how Rachel helps him out. There is a bit sexism in it with Chandler's attitude on how he can flirt but Monica can't. The bad part is that the people making the show seem to support that

The story with earrings is pretty good too. Especially the ending when Chandler doesn't even notice that those are different earrings.

I also like Joey's grandma in it and his tape that he made. Hilarious how he even wears the same clothes and uses the duck in his action scene. And of course grandma's English skills are funny too. As Chandler said "She can't say "hello" but she knows "Capricorn 1"
