Storyline

Phoebe's bachelorette party has no strippers, and Phoebe wanted one. So Rachel and Monica find a stripper, but he has to be at least 50 years old. Joey appears on "Pyramid." Chandler and Ross go to a college reunion, and they recall what they did in 1987. Chandler tells Ross that he kissed Rachel at a party and Ross gets upset with Chandler because that was the night he kissed Rachel for the first time. It turns out that Ross didn't kiss Rachel that night, that he really kissed Monica. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The parts with Joey on "Pyramid" were shot on the "Pyramid" set. The "Pyramid" audience got a big surprise when they thought they were there to watch a real game of "Pyramid" but instead got to watch the taping for a "Friends" episode. See more »

Goofs

When Rachel and Monica are dancing in the flashback, they are both holding cups. It is obvious that nothing is in the cups, but Rachel drinks from hers as Monica fetches the pizza. There isn't enough time for her to fill her cup even when she is not in the shot. See more »

Quotes

Ross: After you told me that she was passed out in our room, I went in there to make sure she was alright. She was lying on my bed, all buried in people's coats. Well, I went to kiss her on the forhead but it was so dark I accidentally got her lips. I started to pull away but then I felt her kissing me back. It was only for a second but it was amazing. And now I found out that you kissed her first!
Chandler: Wait, what bed did you say she was on?
Ross: Mine.
Chandler: I'm pretty sure I put her on my bed.
Ross: No, she was defintely...

The One Where the Stripper Cries
15 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Finally after a few bad episodes we get another good one!

Rachel organizes a very boring party for Phoebe. But luckily Phoebe is not one of those who believes that being adult means to never have fun. So we get a hilarious storyline with Danny DeVito as a stripper! And it is interesting to see Phoebe in this episode. It is basically her new ruined character fighting vs. the old Phoebe that I loved. First she is nasty to him, saying that he is too old, but then not only does she suggest to him to start teaching stripping so that he can pass on what he loves, but that he should also finish that dancing of his and she seems to really have fun while he does it! now this is Phoebe!

It is also great to see their memories from the college party when Rachel and Monica came as well. Chandler hitting on Rachel was great, and when he kisses her he tells her that he is in college and in a band and it is enough for her. And we also find out that Ross's first kiss with Rachel was in reality a kiss with Monica (hich was her first kiss). Great idea!
