Storyline

The superintendent makes Rachel cry because he is upset about them clogging the trash shoot. Chandler is a member at the gym even though he doesn't go but he can't quit because the dreamy spandex girl always changes his mind. The superintendent wants to throw out Monica and Rachel because Monica has been illegally subletting the apartment. Phoebe has a crush on her client Rick but she would get fired for fooling around with him. Ross goes to the gym with Chandler to give him courage to quit. But when Maria appears Ross can't say no to a membership. Joey goes to convince the superintendent not to kick our Monica and Rachel. In turn for that favour Joey will help the superintendent practice dancing for the superintendents' ball. They have the great idea to close their accounts at the bank so the gym can't charge them. Joey begins to enjoy the ballroom dancing. Phoebe and Rick make out. Phoebe finds out that Rick is married and also gets fired because her boss caught them kissing. Written by Anonymous

The One with the Ballroom Dancing
18 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I really like the part about ballroom dancing! Mike Hagerty is doing a great performance as Mr. Treeger and the idea is pretty good too. Seeing Joey dancing with him is just adorable and hilarious. Especially at the end on the roof. I also liked Rachel, who didn't have a big but a pretty funny part at the end

The story of Phoebe is pretty good too. So very Phoebe-like. How she even bites the guy on the butt and at the end just tells at the interview the reason for why she got fired

Ross and Chandler take us to the situation that most of us know: quitting the gym and closing the bank account, and this gives us some funny moments
