Phoebe does not tell Rachel however that she actually works at this specific massage chain. Although Rachel says she won't go and even tears up the gift certificate, she later tapes it back together, goes for her free massage and gets Phoebe as her masseuse. In the progress of Joey and Charlie's relationship, Joey discusses with Ross his feelings that Charlie may be too smart for him.

The one Chandler and Monica see Janice again
11 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Ross is angry that Joey kissed Charlie, since he was interested in her. Rachel didn't like it too, since she was determined to kiss Joey. Ross thinks that Joey and Charlie doesn't have anything in common,specially because she is such an intelligent professor and Joey is so stupid.

Charlie wants to visit a lot of places in the city, but Joey doesn't know very well the places she wants to go. He asks Ross to help him, since he doesn't want to look stupid to her. Even being angry with the situation, Ross tries to help Joey,specially giving tips about the museum art.

Rachel wins a gift certificate to a new spa in SoHo, but Monica tells her that Phoebe hates those corporate massage chains. Phoebe sees the certificate and asks Rachel not to go to that place, since those kind of big massage chains are the ones responsible for her unemployment. Rachel goes to the Spa in secret, and when she is there, she discovers that her massage therapist is Phoebe.

Monica and Chandler go to a fertility clinic to make fertility tests,since they were trying to have a baby for over a year. Chandler doesn't feel comfortable in this kind of place, and feels even worst when they meet Janice there.
