Monica Geller (as Courteney Cox Arquette)
Joey Tribbiani (as Matt Le Blanc)


Rachel ordered an apothecary table but Phoebe will hate it because it is mass manufactured.

Rachel tells Phoebe she got the table at the flea market and Phoebe loves it. But there is one problem: Ross ordered the exact same table. Rachel orders a whole new living room and tells Phoebe she got it all from the flea market but Phoebe finds out that Rachel lied to her but isn't mad because she likes some stuff from the shop they don't have yet. Joey, Janine, Monica and Chandler go on a double date again but Janine just can't stand them. Janine and Monica have a fight and Joey breaks up with Janine because his friends mean much more to him.

The Pottery Barn's table...
8 June 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Joey talks to the Friends that he kissed Janine, spite of the fact that nobody thought he would have success doing that. He stays in love with her the hole episode.

Rachel bought a table in Pottery Barn, but Monica warns her that Phoebe hates that store,since it is mass production and doesn't have a ''history behind it''. Rachel pretends that she bought the table in the flea market in order to not have problems with Phoebe, but when they both (Rachel and Phoebe) go to Ross' house, Rachel stays completely desperate, since Ross has the same table from Pottery Barn that Rachel has.

Joey and Janine go out with Monica and Chandler. Janine tells Joey that she doesn't like Monica and Chandler very much and she wants to give them an excuse to not go out with them in the next time. Joey stays upset to know that Janine doesn't like his friends, but he decides to go out with Monica and Chandler alone. When Monica and Chandler make a pressure in Joey to talk, they discover that Janine doesn't like them (and this makes Monica very angry, by the way).
