Storyline

When Joey hears that his girlfriend Charlie is an insecure shopper, he volunteers expert Rachel, who dreads being alone with her, so she makes sure Phoebe comes along, by saying she needs a dazzling outfit for the party she's going to just to save face as her ex Mike is coming too. Gynecologist Dr. Connelly tells Chandler and Monica they should keep trying the natural way, but realistically consider a surrogate mother -a nightmare for Monica- or donor sperm insemination, so Chandler invites his 'perfectly eligible' colleague Zach for dinner; they scare him with endless health and genealogy questions, yet Monica has another objection... Ross hopes to be the key note speaker at a paleontology convention on Barbados thanks to his spectacular theory, but it makes professor Sherman, who can get it for him, literally fall asleep. After embarrassing misunderstandings in the shop, Phoebe bumps into David, who is back from Minsk, for good... Written by KGF Vissers / correction: sLiDe.gR

Trivia

The lady at the department store who sprays Phoebe with cologne is the same extra who played her alleged "best friend from high school" in the one where Joey sets her up on a date with Mike, and she's also the same actress who plays the owner of the bridal salon in the one where Monica buys the cheap wedding dress, and also the casting director at the audition where Joey sticks his hand in his pants because he's got a hernia.

Goofs

When Zack first got the beer, he requested for a coaster so that he would not leave a ring (if he place the beer down). However when Monica announces that the dinner is ready, he placed the beer straight on the table. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Connelly: Even though your chances of conceiving through natural means aren't great, you never know. So keep having sex on a regular basis.
Chandler Bing: [sarcastically] Oh, dammit!
Monica Geller Bing: [the doctor is nonplussed] Don't worry; after a while, you'll tune it out.

The One with the Donor
11 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode Rachel is being just as annoying as always when someone she likes is dating someone else. Now her dislike is directed to Charlie. And there is a fun spin on it when Charlie overhears Rachel and Phoebe talk about it, only she believes that it is Phoebe who likes Joey.

Monica and Chandler are thinking of getting a sperm donor and Chandler brings his co worker (John Stamos) so they can see if he is fitting. This was a pretty fun story

And what I liked the most was Ross trying to be the keynote speaker of a paleontology conference. Especially when he ends up sitting on the lap of that guy
