Chandler has gone to extreme trouble to get Kathy the ideal birthday gift, a special edition of her favorite book; Ross points out he can't outshine her boyfriend Joey -who didn't even plan to give her anything- totally so he must get an even cooler gift. Phoebe tells Monica not to turn down major funeral catering for lack of equipment and advances the money, but wants it straight back before there's nearly enough profit; so they become active business partners- which proves good, as their first client, a widow, would never pay without Phoebe's street persistence. Ross' foxy girlfriend Cheryls flat turns out to be sloppier then a bachelor frat room, and yet says his place has a weird smell and is relieved when the creeping creature he kills in disgust is not her hamster but 'just a rat'. Since Joey can't find anything better then a pen annex clock, Chandler lets him give the Velvteen Rabbit; fortunately Kathy guesses the truth. Written by
