Did You Know?


In this episode it's revealed that Monica made a tape with Richard and Chandler says 'listen to the judgement from the porn star!' However in the fifth season Monica and Chandler get caught with a video camera set up, and in the third season Monica tells the group that she made a tape with Pete. Meaning she filmed herself during all three major relationships of the series. See more »


When Joey and Chandler are watching the sex tape from Richard's apartment, it starts off as a football match - which is visible when the camera is pointing towards tot he TV. When the video "switches" to Richard and the other girl having sex and the camera angle switches to looking towards the TV, the TV is blank. Obviously they won't show a sex tape in Friends, but you would think they would avoid showing a blank TV screen. See more »


Rachel Greene: Is it only offensive, novelty rap? Or just rap in general? Because mommy can rap.
[starts bopping her fists]
Rachel Greene: "My name is Mommy and I'm here to say that all the babies are..." Oh, I can't rap.

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.
