Storyline

Joey hits a button on the remote control and free porn is on TV. They can't turn it off anymore because otherwise they won't find the channel anymore. Ross is sad because Emily just left for the airport and he doesn't know when and if he will see her again. Ross catches Emily at the airport to say he loves her. Emily doesn't react and boards the plane. Phoebe finds out that she is pregnant with triplets and Frank will have to quit college to support such a large family. Chandler and Joey need a break from porn so they watch TV at the girls' place. Emily calls to tell Ross that there is someone else and she doesn't know who she should be with. Monica convinces Ross to go to London and fight for her. Phoebe will have her own massage "salon" in the van - "Relaxy Taxi" - so Frank won't have to quit college. Emily turns up at the apartment to tell Ross she loves him and they call Ross so he can come home as quickly as possible. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

This episode wasn't aired in the UK when Friends was originally on E4. This episode was skipped all together as the programme was showed at 5pm, with the porn references too rude for that time of day. See more »

Goofs

Phoebe asks Chandler if he has any corporate insider information that he may give her. There has never been any indication during the series that Chandler works for a publicly traded corporation- a company that sells stock on an exchange and whose ownership is divided among the public. As a result all of the owners of Chandler's company are "insiders" and (since it has no outstanding stock) has no "outsiders". Therefore the concept of insider trading would not be an issue and insider information and all applicable laws would be irrelevant. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Treeger: [notices that Joey and Chandler have free porn] Wow, hey. That lady is all kinds of naked.
Chandler: Yeah, Joey just pressed something on the remote and it just came on.
Mr. Treeger: Yeah, it happened to me once. I was just flipping through the channels and BAM. It was like finding money.
Chandler: Like finding money with naked people on it.
Mr. Treeger: Then I made the mistake of turning off the tv. I never got it back again.
[pause]
Mr. Treeger: And I'm sad.
Joey: [to Chandler] Why would he turn off the tv?

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

Great episode. I absolutely love the scene in the airport when Ross tells Emily that he loves her and she says "thank you". His mimic was priceless, and I love how he was telling it to Monica. This whole story was very good. They had a great idea to make Emily come to New york again while Ross was in London and her leaving him a message while telling the neighbours to bugger off was very funny.

And we find out that Phoebe is having triplets! Can it get any better? Too bad that Frank needs to quit his refrigerator college. Lisa Kudrow is just great in the scene where they tell the rest about the Relaxy Cab.

And a little joke about free porn wasn't too bad too. It was funny and there wasn't too much of it so it didn't get old and boring
