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

The one Phoebe takes care of rats
9 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rachel and Ross finally found a good nanny to Emma, Molly. Everybody finds Molly a hot girl, but Rachel doesn't understand what everybody sees in her. Ross tells Joey that Molly is forbidden to him, because Joey has the terrible habit of sleeping with girls and never call them back. Ross asks Chandler to help him to let Joey distant from Molly, and Joey tries to do everything to get rid of them.

Mike stays shocked to see rats in Phoebe's kitchen, and even more disgusted when he sees that Phoebe voluntarily takes care of the rats. He sets some traps to kill ''Bob'' (the rat), but pretty soon they discover that Bob was female and had an offspring. Phoebe decides to take care of Bob's babies, since she feels responsible for it's death.

It's Rachel Birthday and Monica is going to make a party to her in the apartment. Rachel starts to have a better relationship with Gavin (but they always fight in some point), and Monica invites him to go to Rachel's birthday party. At the party, Rachel stays moody and cursing Gavin, until he arrives at the party and they kiss.
