Rachel is going out again...
9 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Joey invites Chandler to see a Knicks game in a very privileged place, and to make things better, he also bought their tickets. The problem is that the game is in the same day that Monica is going to stay home to see Chandler, and she doesn't want to lose the day with him. Monica tells Chandler to give Joey an excuse, but he doesn't know what to say, since nothing would convince Joey enough. He decides to tell Joey that he is going to stay in Tulsa, but this becomes a problem when Joey listens to a man's voice in Monica's apartment and thinks she is cheating Chandler.

Rachel and Phoebe are going out. It will be Rachel's first night distant from Emma, who is going to stay with Ross. Ross stays surprised how beautiful Rachel is,since he doesn't see her dressed for the night for a long time. They have a ''moment'' before Rachel goes out from the apartment.

Ross invites Mike, Phoebe's boyfriend, to stay with him in the apartment and to drink some beers while they know each other better. But the problem is that they don't have much things in common, and a boring night for both of them is arriving.

Rachel and Phoebe have success with two guys in the bar they go, but Phoebe tells the guy who flirted with her that she is dating someone, while Rachel ends up giving her phone number to the guy who flirted her. The problem is that she is not interested in him, and now is worried that Ross can pick up the phone.
