Storyline

"Ross' Thing" is something on his derrière. He doesn't know what it is. Chandler doesn't know what it is. Joey doesn't know what it is. A large contingent of conventional doctors don't know what it is. So Phoebe sends him to Guru Saj, her herbalist, to figure out what it is. Guru Saj doesn't know exactly what it is, but solves the problem, not with medicine, conventional or otherwise. Meanwhile Pete mentions to Monica that he has something important to tell her. When Joey finds out that Pete has paid $50,000 to a ring designer, engagement ring comes to everyone's mind. Although Monica originally thinks she will say no if Pete asks her to marry him, the thought of saying yes becomes more and more appealing. However the question has to come first. On another dating front, Phoebe ends up dating two guys at the same time, Vince the beefy fireman, and Jason the sensitive kindergarten teacher. She likes them both for their obvious attributes.

Goofs

When Ross goes to see Guru Saj, he has his "thing" removed. However, it is really obvious that Guru is not going anywhere near the thing, because you can see that Ross' shirt is still tucked into his trousers, and the Guru just rubs his hands along the shirt. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Rhodes: [Ross has something on his body he can't identify, and is trying to pass it off as a Chandleresque "third nipple"] Take your shirt off and let's see what we're dealing with here.
[Ross begins to take off his pants]
Dr. Rhodes: What are you doing?
Dr. Ross Geller: Just showing you my run-of-the-mill, slice-it-right-off third nipple...
Dr. Rhodes: Well, that's not a third nipple.
Dr. Ross Geller: No?
Dr. Rhodes: First of all, it's on your ass.

The One with Ross's Thing
16 May 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Phoebe is going out with two guys at the same time: Vince, the hot fireman, and Jason, the intelligent professor. She stays seriously in doubt about who she is going to choose to be her boyfriend,specially because she likes emotional guys, but also guys who are strong and take care of their bodies.(In other words: with a hot body!) To make things even worst to her, she discovers that Vince is very sensitive and Jason has an incredible body.

Monica thinks Pete will ask her in marriage, and gets disappointed when she discovers that the $50,000 paid in a ring designer,in fact means that Pete wants to become an Ultimate Fighting Champion.

Ross has a ''thing'' in his butt, and stays frightened with it. Since all the doctors he goes doesn't know what to do with the ''thing'' (even the doctor who removed Chandler's third nipple), he goes to Phoebe's herbalist, Guru Saj, who is the only one who really has success in helping Ross to remove the strange anomaly.
