Chandler's second name is Muriel!!
14 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Phoebe is going to visit Monica in the restaurant and meets Tim, Monica's new sous chef. She gets interested on him after some flirt, and they end up scheduling a date. A day later, Monica tells Phoebe that she will need to fire Tim, since he is terrible in the kitchen. Phoebe asks Monica to give him another chance, telling how much Tim loves his work. Monica decides to listen to Phoebe and try again. Some days later, Phoebe is the one who is annoyed, because she says Tim is too sappy for her. But Phoebe wants to break up with him in the same day that Monica wants to fire him, and they try to decide who will dump him first.

Rachel goes to Joey's work, on the set, and asks him to introduce her to Kash, Joey's actor's colleague. Joey tells Rachel that Kash is interested on her and she sets up a date with him.

Ross is angry when he discovers that Rachel is going on a date, and says that the reason he is mad is because Rachel is pregnant from his child.

Chandler is always called ''Toby'' by Bob, a colleague from his work. Chan gets into a big mess when he doesn't recommend Bob to his Boss, making Bob search for '' some Chandler Bing'' guy. The funny thing is that he tells Chandler how angry he is with the Mr. Bing, since he doesn't know that is Chandler himself.

Ps: Chandler's second name, Muriel, really sucks!
