Storyline

After trying and not yet being able to conceive a child, Monica and Chandler decide to get tests done at a fertility clinic, where they run into Chandler's favorite ex, Janice. Rachel receives a gift certificate to get a free massage at a chain massage center. Phoebe chastises Rachel for even thinking about going to a massage chain, which she feels takes away business from independent massage therapists like herself. 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. As Charlie wants to go to the "Met" (not to see "The Mets" as Joey originally assumes), Ross coaches Joey on the layout of the museum and on certain paintings on a planned route through the ...

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

Not a very funny episode. The one great thing is that we get another random visit from Janice, right in the fertility clinic. And once again she makes a character being worried

Phoebe is being a hypocrite. And I find the scene of her massaging Rachel pretending to be a Swedish person with a normal Swedish name, Ikea pretty well done. The girl at the reception desk is also funny with her weird way of talking

And Joey sees that he is too stupid for Charlie. Yeah...I would say him and Charlie are even a worse couple than him and Rachel. I wonder if this story was created so that people suddenly believe that him and Rachel are great together
