Did You Know?


The voice Phoebe uses when speaking to Mike's parents is an impersonation of Katharine Hepburn's distinctive accent. See more »


Years earlier, Richard had revealed to Monica that he had only ever slept with 2 women - Monica and his ex-wife. Here, Richard is portrayed as having videotaped himself having sex with at least 2 women, Monica and another unnamed woman, and it can be safely assumed by the characters' reactions that these were not meant to be construed as isolated incidents. It is unlikely that the character of Richard would have gone from being rather old-fashioned sexually to someone who regularly videotapes his sexual dalliances. See more »


[in Richard's apartment]
Chandler: Oh, my god. Look at this tape. It says 'Monica'.
Joey: So?
Chandler: Think about it. Ex-boyfriend's apartment, videotape with her name on it...
[Joey looks thoughtful]
Chandler: Get there faster.
[Joey thinks for a few seconds]
Joey: Ohhhh.

Ross wants to make Emma laugh, so he starts to sing a rap song ( Baby Got back) from Sir Mix-a Lot. He has success in making Emma laugh for the first time, and when he tells Rachel about what happened, she doesn't like and tells him how terrible parent he was to sing a song like that to their daughter. She tries to make Emma laugh doing other things, but ends up singing the same song to her.

Joey wants to know about investments,specially now that he is making a lot of money with the soap opera ''Days of Our Lives.''. Monica tells him that real estate is the best investment, and that Richard is selling his great apartment. Joey decides to see the place and Chandler goes with him, but when they arrive there, they see a tape with Monica's name in it. Chandler is pretty sure that it is a sex tape with Monica and Richard, and takes the tape to see in his house.

Rachel helps Phoebe to choose nice clothes to meet Mike's parents and also tells her how to behave. Mike's parents are from Upper East Side,Park Avenue, and Phoebe tries to be different to please them. Mike tells her that she should be herself, and many funny situations happens after he says that.
