The one with Joey's intelligent girlfriend
17 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Joey starts to go out with Erin (Charlotte from SEX AND THE CITY!), a fantastic girl who speaks 4 languages, enjoy to drink beer and is very intelligent. Rachel and Phoebe think she is amazing, and do everything they can to make Joey realize how Erin would be great for him. Joey starts to like Erin, but the problem is that Erin doesn't want to stay with Joey.

Ross and Chandler go to the University's library where Ross' doctoral dissertation is. Ross stays angry when he sees that his work is in the part of the library that nobody cares and also that a lot of people go to make sex. Ross decides to end this and stays taking care of the Paleontoly section, avoiding people to go there with filthy ideas.

Janice complains about the food in the restaurant where Monica works, and there, she discovers not only Monica is the restaurant Headchef, but also that she and Chandler are going to marry. Chandler stays mad with Monica when he discovers that Monica invited Janice to their wedding, and tells her that she needs to learn how to lie. Monica tells Chandler that they will need to dinner with Janice and her boyfriend Clark, and they end up having even more problems when they try to dismiss Janice from their wedding, since Janice understands that she is part of their family.
