Another Tour Guide


Phoebe's brother Frank and Alice got married. They were trying to get pregnant but it didn't work out. They ask Phoebe if she could bear their baby. Joey gets a job as a tour guide at Ross' museum. The friends want Phoebe to think it through before she makes the decisions about having Frank's and Alice's child. Things are going really well for Kathy and Chandler but they haven't had sex because Chandler is afraid he won't be able to fill Joey's shoes. Joey is a terrible tour guide. Phoebe goes to see her mother to ask whether she should have the baby or not. Her mother tells her not to do it because she knows how hard it is to give up a baby. Joey realizes that he can't be friends with Ross at work because tour guides and scientists don't mix. Chandler sleeps with Kathy but it wasn't great and he asks Rachel and Monica for advice on good sex. Ross proves his friendship to Joey by having lunch with him at work. Ross and Joey set a good example and all the others at work stop dividing ... Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


Matthew Perry messes up a line by saying "blue blazer black" instead of "blue blazer back". The rest of the cast's responses were so funny that they left it in the episode. See more »

I really hate the character of Pheobe
26 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a huge fan of friends, but I hate the character of Pheobe. Not a single one of the other characters on the show in real life would be friends with that annoying, rude, badly dressed, hippie. She always puts people down and screws everything up. Like how she blurted out Monica had lunch with Richard in front of Chandler while on the plane to Vegas. When she blurts out Racheal is pregnant, when she harrases Ross while he's still secretly married to Rachal, and a million other instances. I seriously hated Pheobe on the show. Any episode or storyline that centers on Pheobe is a huge waste of time and airspace. No wonder why she never had a serious relationship before that equally annoying Mike guy because shes freaking annoying and weird. One of my favorite jokes in the show is in the Thanksgiving episode of season 9 when Christina Applegates character is introduced to Pheobe and she says something like "Well thats a funny noise", love it!
