Storyline

A cat walks into Central Perk and Phoebe is convinced that it is her mother's reincarnation. Joey and Chandler agree to sell the entertainment center. People come to look at it and Joey gets locked into it by a guy who then steals all their other furniture. Monica goes on a date with Rachel's ex from high school Chip. He is still very cute but he still lives with his parents and still works at the movie theater as he did in high school. The friends find an ad from a little girl who lost the cat. Ross and Phoebe fight about the cat but Phoebe agrees to take her "mum" back to the girl in the end. Joey and Chandler trade the entertainment center for a canoe. Written by Anonymous

One Of The Best From Season 4.
9 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The One with the cat is one of the best episodes from season 4. Love how Ross explains how crazy it is that Phoebe thinks her mother is inside of the cat in spirit. Ross being the voice of reason seems to work here since all the other characters just let Phoebe believe that the cat is really her mother. However as good as this plot is I like how Joey and Chandler are trying to sell the entertainment unit better. Joey just does not want to get rid of the unit, unless of course he could get a "canoe" in exchange for it. Who can forget what happens when Joey gets into the entertainment unit "voluntarily". I do not want to give it away so you will have to see this episode to find out.
