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
Did You Know?
The whole "Phoebe is having her brother's babies" story line was created to keep Lisa Kudrow in the show while she actually was pregnant. It was also the reason she stayed in the US during Ross's wedding because she actually was in her 3rd trimester and was not allowed to fly. See more

But shouldn't you know what you're talking about?
Yeah, but they tell me everything I need to know. It's like reading a script. Like, "this is a Tyranosaurus Rex a creature from the Jurassic period".
Actually, Joey, it's the Cretaceous period.
Yeah, but, I can pronounce Jurassic.
