Storyline

Since Rachel didn't see it in her, Ross got to hire a hot nanny for Emma, Molly. When Joey sees her, his lady killer instinct kicks in. Mike is disgusted to find a rat in Phoebe's flat. In eliminating her 'house friend' Bob may only mean a new home but 'oops', the trap snapped already. Bob must have been Roberta as there are seven rodent orphans. Rachel has to share her office with the higher ranking stud Gavin, who is immune to all her tricks and always gets the better of her. And then he turns up at Rachel's birthday party Monica invited both of them to, to Ross's horror... Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Monica Geller-Bing: [about Emma's new nanny, Molly] What's the big deal with her? Maybe she's attractive in an obvious kind of way.
Dr. Ross Geller: Yeah, obvious beauty's the worst. You know, when it's right there in your face. Me, I like to have to work to find someone attractive. Makes me feel like I earned it.

The One with Phoebe's Rats
10 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode Mike keeps on ruining Phoebe. I can sure understand that he doesn't want to have a rat in the house. but Phoebe had no problem with him killing Bob? She had an issue when that cop killed a pigeon bu she has no problem that Mike didn't bother to buy the traps that don't kill the rat? Too bad, Phoebe I loved would not give up on animals and approve something like that for a guy. I also wonder what they did with the babies. Seems like Mike just killed them as well and it is presented to us as the reasonable thing to do

Joey's love for the nanny is just great especially when he tries to make it a Romeo and Juliet kind of thing

And another dramatic movement in the Ross and Rachel story when he sees the kiss!
