Storyline

Frank and Alice name two of the babies and let Phoebe pick a name for the second boy. Phoebe wavers between the names "Chandler" or "Joey", so the guys have a big competition whose name will be be picked. Ross freaks out because Susan is in London and is now really good friends with Emily - and it all seems too familiar. Rachel has a romantic date with Joshua and hopes to sleep with him. They are at Joshua's parents' place who are supposed to be on holidays, but come back unexpectedly. When they barge in, Rachel is wearing a sexy negligee and tells them it's a dress by an Italian designer. The parents are shocked but take Rachel and Joshua out for dinner with Rachel wearing her negligee. Ross seriously thinks Emily is a lesbian now too, but the friends tell him not to be so paranoid and he shouldn't let what happened with Carol ruin his relationship to Emily. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Ross refers to the comic book "The Incredible Hulk #72", but no such comic existed at this time. "The Incredible Hulk" was canceled at #6; the Hulk then appeared as a feature in "Tales to Astonish" until he took over the title in 1968 and it was renamed "The Incredible Hulk" with #102. There were no issues numbered #7-101 until the title began renumbering with #1 in 1999, a year after this episode aired. See more »

The One with Rachel's New Dress
10 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Ross is hilarious. His jealousy about Emily and Susan was done just perfectly. I love the scene where he even makes Carol worry and it freaks him out even more and where he tells the girls that Susan and Emily are "being gay together" after which Phoebe analyzes how carol make him all paranoid

The date of Rachel and Joshua had lots of fun moments as well. First of all the fact that he is scared farm birds. And of course Rachel facing his parents in her "dress". I just couldn't understand why they left Joshua $500 for groceries. He doesn't seem as if he lives off his parents.

I also liked Phoebe selecting a name for the child. Joey and Chandler competing for it was fun, especially since Chandler ended up going the "i hate my name" route to convince Phoebe to choose it instead of saying how great it is. Smart move!
