Storyline

After Janice asks about past relationships between the friends, we go back three years earlier. Phoebe and Monica live together, but Phoebe is moving out - without Monica knowing. Chandler is looking for a roommate, but his first choice, a photographer who works with models, is frightened away by Mr. Heckles, so Joey moves in instead. It turns out that living with Joey isn't that bad after all, and Monica fancies him, leading Joey to get naked in her apartment. Rachel is engaged to Barry, but she wants one last meaningless relationship, and Chandler is just the man she needs. Ross is happy his wife finally has a friend, until he finds out they are lesbians. Phoebe consoles him, and they almost sleep together. Written by Pruneau

Trivia

This episode was partly the idea of the cast to see how audience responded to certain couplings, the main one of these being Rachel and Chandler. The audience didn't like seeing these two together, so they never were. See more »

A classic Friends episode.

Plot In A Paragraph: After Janice asks about past relationships between the friends, we go back three years earlier. Phoebe and Monica live together, but Phoebe has moved out (without Monica knowing). Chandler is looking for a roommate, it seems his choice is easy, a photographer who works with models, or Joey who is "ok with the whole gay thing". It turns out Monica fancies Joey, and urges Chandler to pick him. Rachel is engaged to Barry, but she wants one last meaningless relationship, and Chandler thinks he is just the man she needs. Ross is happy his wife finally has a friend, "Susan something from the gym" until he finds out they are lesbians.

I loved the scenes with Chandler comforting Monica and him bonding with Joey over 'Baywatch'
