Storyline

Emily will be leaving in 2 days and Ross is very sad but they both knew they'd only have 2 weeks together. Phoebe craves meat but won't eat it. Joshua tells Rachel he had a date and he just isn't ready to be dating so Rachel invites him over for Emily's party even though they didn't really plan a party. They invite people on short notice for their fake party. Rachel tries to figure out how she can kiss Joshua without letting him know that she likes him so they play spin the bottle. Rachel is about to kiss Joshua when Phoebe exclaims that the baby kicked so Rachel's chance is over. Rachel's seduction doesn't work out so she just tells Joshua that she likes him and it turns out that Joshua likes Rachel too. Phoebe's cravings are so bad that she eats meat after all. She feels bad for the dead animals so Joey promises not to eat any meat until the baby is born. Written by Anonymous

The One with the Fake Party
9 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The idea of Phoebe suddenly craving meat was pretty amusing. As a vegetarian myself I loved how they handled it! The fact that Joey was such a sweet friend and made sure that no extra animals died was very nice. I also like how she first found that meat she was craving, in Joey's shower

Rachel hitting on Joshua was very amusing as well. Her changing all those clothes, especially towards the end the cheerleader outfit. I love the scene when Monica wanted to stop her but at the end decided not to because she wanted to see how it ends (and I am very grateful to her that she didn't). I loved how Rachel hurt her lip, how she was trying to get her bra off, the episode was full of great ideas
