Joey and Janine go out with Chandler and Monica but Janine thinks they are too much and doesn't want to hang out with them every night. 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.

The One with the Apothecary Table
17 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The story about Joey's girlfriend not getting along with Chandler and Monica was not good. While it is an interesting idea about dating someone who doesn't like your friends and I absolutely agree with her about Monica it was not fun at all. And I think another problem that ruined this storyline was that Elle Macpherson didn't act good at all. Nor was there any chemistry between her and Matt LeBlanc. Glad she was out after this

The apothecary table story was a bit more amusing. Both how Rachel was inventing stories about Pottery Barn items (most of which were from "Colonial Period") and the movie night at Ross's, he is great as usually in it
