Phoebe and Mike are planning their wedding
7 May 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Phoebe and Mike are doing their wedding plans, but they are shocked how expensive everything is. Phoebe thinks it's a lot of money to spent in just one day, and Mike doesn't need a big wedding, since he already been married before. They have the idea to give all the money to charity and marry in the city Hall. When they make the donation and go away, Phoebe stays in doubt about their act, specially because Monica stays shocked with her decision and tells her how special is the wedding day.

Monica is cleaning the apartment because the adoption social worker is coming. She has a big decision power, so everything needs to be perfect. Later,Monica and Chandler discover that Laura, the social worker, already slept with Joey and she still is angry with him, so they try to avoid Joey and don't allow him to enter in the apartment.

Ross is going to take Emma to the playground, but Rachel doesn't want her there because she had a traumatic swing ''incident''. Ross tells Rachel that Emma loves the swings, and convince her to go with them to the playground to see that there isn't anything wrong there.
