Storyline

Ross eats Monica's kiwi pie, and has an allergic reaction to it. Even though he hates injections, Monica takes him to the hospital, meaning Chandler and Joey have to take care of baby Ben. They use him to seduce women, but forget the baby on the bus, and go through the hassle of finding him again. In the meantime, a professional guitarist plays in Phoebe's spot in Central Perk, leading to her being jealous and to Rachel feeling bad about it. Written by Pruneau

Love This Episode
7 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love this episode Plot In A Paragraph:Phoebe is devastated when she loses her singing gig at Central Perk to a professional singer. Joey volunteers himself and and Chandler to babysit Ben, when Monica takes Ross to the hospital after an allergic reaction. Of course he has an ulterior motive, and they take the baby cruising round New York looking for babes.

Whilst the Pheobe storyline takes up a lot of screen time and has the guest star, for me this episode is all about Joey and Chandler with Ben. Both Matthew Perry and Matt Le Blanc were superb, my only complaint (and this is nit picking) would Schwimmers acting at times is a little off, but that said faking an allergic reaction would have me looking awkward.... see I said it was nit picking
