Six years Phoebe got married to a gay friend of hers from Canada who needed a green card. She used to be in love with him but didn't tell her friends that they are married. Because Monica is upset that Phoebe didn't tell her she got married they start yelling the others secrets out: the panties on the telephone pole are Monica's from sex on the balcony, Chandler has a third nipple, Joey acted in a porn movie. Ross tells Rachel he hasn't had sex with Julie because he has only been with one woman in his life and she turned out to be a lesbian. The gang watches Joey's porn. Meanwhile Phoebe's husband tells her he isn't gay and needs a divorce because he is getting married again. Rachel tries to talk Ross out of sleeping with Julie but doesn't succeed.

Matt LeBlanc has actually done soft core porn in The Red Shoe Diaries. See more »


When Monica tells the gang that Chandler has a third nipple, it takes everyone except Joey by surprise. However, Ross and Chandler were roommates in college, which means they slept in the same bedroom for at least two years. It's hard to believe that Ross has never seen Chandler's "nubbin," especially since Joey, who's never shared a bedroom with Chandler, *has* seen it. See more »


Julie: [watching Joey's porno video] Does this movie have a plot or do they just start having sex? ...Oh, never mind.

Jennifer Aniston Was Cold Filming This Episode
4 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An OK episode nothing great but a lot of fun.

Plot In A Paragraph: When the gang find out Phoebe married a gay Canadian ice dancer so he could obtain a green card, more of their secrets are revealed like what Joey did to get a bit of work experience in the acting business, whose underwear are on the telegraph pole and who has a third nipple.. Meanwhile, Rachel gives Ross bad advice on his relationship with Julie, in an attempt to stop him having sex with her.

All the gang are good here, some parts of it seemed a little forced, and you can see the close bond between Monica and Chandler in this episode.

And for the second episode in a row Jennifer Aniston was really cold during the filming of this episode.
