Storyline

Rachel wants to know all details about Chandler and Monica, Joey paid attention to none, so she's all over Monica at Central Perk and at home, but nothing makes her spill any beans. Ross' ex Emily is going to marry; so he smashes a scone. Chandler and Monica enjoy being a couple at his office party; as his boss Doug and his wife Kara love her, they are invited to play tennis at Doug's place, where Chandler goes to great lengths to let Doug win, despite Monica who is furious he's such a suck-up at work; they get a dinner invitation, where Monica first inspires Chandler not to laugh at Doug's lame joke, then changes her mind. Ross is so frustrated he goes out with... Janice, who still thinks Chandler is in Yemen, and is amazed how well she listens, but all his wining is too much even for her. When Ross apologizes for having gone out with his ex, Chandler cleverly jumps at the chance to set the precedent for forgiving a friend going out with a girl close to a friend, such as a relative.

Ross and Janice go out on a date!
25 June 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rachel and Joey stay talking about Monica and Chandler's relationship and Rachel is shocked with Joey's lack of interested in their relationship, since he doesn't know any details about they two. Rachel decides to talk to Monica in her lunch time, but since Monica doesn't talk anything about Chandler with her, she decides to have another strategy.

Ross is upset that Emily is going to marry again and ends up going out with Janice on a date. But even Janice gets annoyed with Ross' complaints and dumps him.

Monica stays shocked with Doug's attitude towards Chandler (Doug is Chandler's Boss) and also hates Chandler's ' work laugh' to please his boss.

To make Monica less comfortable, Doug invites her and Chandler to go out with him again.
