The one Ross is frightened with the Holiday Cards!
16 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rachel is in her 4 month of pregnancy and also horny because of her hormones. Phoebe tells Rachel that this is normal and that she was horny all the time when she was in this month of pregnancy.

Ross and Mona get developed the pictures they took together in the Rockfeller center, and Mona give Ross the idea to send to their friends a Christmas card together. Ross stays frightened with the idea, since he thinks Holiday Cards are for married people. Ross tries to tell Mona what he thinks about the subject, but to avoid to talk about their relationship, he decides to accept to send the cards with her.

Doug invites Monica and Chandler to go out and celebrate his divorce and their wedding. Monica doesn't like Doug and doesn't want to go out with him, so Chandler, to avoid a bad situation with his boss, tells that he and Monica are separated. Doug tells Chandler that he needs to move on, and brings him to a lot of strip clubs.
