Storyline

Phoebe dates an East European UN diplomat Sergei and asks Monica to join them at a restaurant to keep his translator company as Sergei cannot speak Enlgish. When Ross brings a picnic to Rachel's office, Rachel becomes fed up with Ross's neediness and suggests they take a break. Ross seeks comfort in the bar where Joey and Chandler are trying to impress Chloe, the copy-girl they both have a crush on. Ross and Rachel are trying to make up on the phone when Ross hears Mark, who insisted he come over. Mark, knowing Rachel is on the phone with Ross, makes his voice audible to him so Ross assumes the worst and hangs up on Rachel. He then has one too many beers and sleeps with Chloe.

The One Where Ross and Rachel Take a Break
14 May 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Phoebe meets a diplomat,Sergei, when she is doing free massage at the UN. She starts to date him, but she stays upset because the only way they can communicate is by Sergei's translator, what makes them feel very uncomfortable with many situations.

Chloe, the girl with the belly bottom ring from the Xerox, invites Joey and Chandler for a party. They both are attracted to her and imagine all types of situations.

Ross and Rachel have a terrible fight in Rachel's office, in their first anniversary together. When Rachel comes home, she asks Ross to take a break from their relationship. Ross goes to the same party that Chandler and Joey are, and when he talks to Rachel by phone, he listens to Mark's voice. Thinking that she is making out with him, Ross stays with Chloe, the Xerox girl, in the party.
