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.

Did You Know?


The first episode with Phoebe's name in the title. 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 »


Rachel: [in a childish, nasal voice] Ooh, Julie's so smart, Julie's so special!
[normal voice]
Rachel: What, does she go put an outfit on at night and go out and fight crime?
Monica: Look, honey, I wanted you to hook up with Ross as much as you did. But he's with her now. You're just going to have to get over it.
Rachel: Oh! I'm gonna have to get over it! See, I didn't know that's what I have to do! I just have to get over it! Oh, I'm gonna have to write that down on my hand.

Jennifer Aniston Was Cold Filming This Episode
4 December 2014 | by 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.
