It's Emma's birthday!
26 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Chandler made a reservation for him and Monica in a inn in Vermont for the weekend. Ross and Rachel doesn't want them to travel, since they are having a party for Emma's first birthday and they want Emma's uncles to be presented. Monica and Chandler are not very happy with the situation, but are persuaded by Ross and Rachel to travel after the party. At the party, all the Friends are present, and Ross ' parents too.

Ross tries to record a cool birthday video to give Emma when she is 18, but everything that is recorded is terrible, like Ross' parents declarations saying that they will be dead when Emma sees the video or Monica's and Chandler's, saying that they are probably going to be divorced since they couldn't travel because of Emma's birthday.

Phoebe prepared a performance to do in Emma's birthday, and since Joey didn't buy a present for her, he decides to do the same. Phoebe made a song and Joey did a dramatic reading of one of Emma's books. To make Phoebe sad, everybody enjoyed more Joey's reading then Phoebe's song. The party becomes a tragedy when the cake, who was supposed to be a bunny, is in shape of a penis, and Emma, who stays napping most of the episode, makes everybody anxious waiting for her to wake up.
