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.

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.

Rachel and Charlie go shopping
11 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Charlie is terrible buying clothes, so Joey asks Rachel to help Charlie, since Rachel is great with Fashion and works with that. Rachel is not very excited about the idea, but Phoebe comes along with her. Phoebe needs new clothes to go to a party that Mike's sister invited her, because she wants to look incredible to Mike.

Rachel is avoiding Charlie's company to go out, and Phoebe asks her why she doesn't like Charlie. Rachel says that she likes Joey to Phoebe when they are in changing room, but Charlie was very close to them in the next changing room, to Rachel's despair.

Monica and Chandler hardly will have success in conceiving children naturally, because her uterus has an inhospitable environment and Chandler's sperm has low mobility. Their options are to adopt a kid or go after a sperm donor. Chandler brings a workmate to dinner in the next day, because he thinks Zack would be a great choice in case they choose for a donor.

Ross has chances to be a keynote speaker at the National Paleontology Conference. He needs to impress Professor Sherman, who is the person who is going to decide it, but Ross stays in a terrible situation when Sherman sleeps during his speech.
