Storyline

When Ross' ex wife Carol is rushed to the hospital to have their baby, all the friends come along, but prove less then helpful. Rachel only has eyes for the unmarried obstetrician; Chandler and Monica worry if time is passing by for them to find partners and become parents. When Joey has an argument with a single pregnant woman, he finds himself the only available birth coach. After Carol throws Ross and her lesbian life-partner Susan out for bickering, Phoebe manages, while lecturing the pair, to lock all three of them in a janitorial closet. Written by KGF Vissers

Monica is going to kill Phoebe Buffay
20 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the end of this episode Phoebe makes a very inappropriate comment that I believe the writers should never have added to the script. I know they were going for funny but the look on Courtney Cox's Character Monica was like "OMG seriously how stupid of a bitch can you be" Once Ross told everybody that his son's name is Ben Phoebe with no regards to who she would offend said "Susan he looks just like you" The look on Monica and Ross's face was like total ANGER/ EMBARRASSMENT/ DISGUSTED. I never liked this ending of friends because of that comment. And Lisa Kudrow should never had said those lines. It was totally out of Phoebe Buffay character.
