Storyline

Monica throws a baby shower for Rachel. The party is nice and everything goes well, until Phoebe tells Monica that there will be a stripper. Meanwhile, Joey is practicing for a casting to become the host of a new game show named Bamboozled. Ross and Chandler invite Joey to play basketball but he needs to practice for the casting and asks for some help. Chandler gets very uncomfortable because he feels like a fool, pretending to be a contestant, while Ross is enjoying it. Monica gets nervous because Rachel's mother arrives and she claims to have been invited in the last hour. Mrs Green tells Rachel that she will move with her for 8 weeks when the baby comes but Rachel doesn't like the idea and claims that she will be able to manage everything because has read some books. But when she opens her presents and sees all the strange items for newborn, she freaks out and concludes that indeed will need her mother's help. Written by Alejandro Frias

Rachel's mom wants to live with her!
23 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Monica and Phoebe are organizing a baby shower to Rachel. He sisters are not coming, but they both forget to invite Rachel's mother. Monica stays in charge to call Rachel's mom, and when she calls her, Ms Green angrily says how she was surprised with their lack of consideration. Monica stays the entire episode trying to please Rachel's mom, but she doesn't have much success with it.

Joey tells Ross and Chandler that he has an audition to be the host of a game show called Bamboozled. Chandler and Joey pretend to be guests to help Joey in his audition. The game is very hard to understand in the beginning, but as long as the time passes, they know how to play it better and even like it!

Rachel's mom gives the idea of staying in Rachel's house for a month to help her with the baby. Ross says that he knows how to take care of a baby and that they don't need her help. Rachel is also not excited to have her mother for such a long time near her.
