He takes them both to the park where he has to face his fear of spiders in exchange for getting get Rachel to try a swing it after seeing Emma enjoy it. Monica thoroughly clears away everything that might scare off Laura, the social worker from the adoption agency, but Joey, who promised to turn up in case she's impressed by a TV 'celebrity', once dated Laura and never called back as he always falsely promises... Meanwhile After trying on Monica's veil, Phoebe changes her mind about having donating her wedding day budget to the New York Children's Fundand so drags groom Mike along to seduce the foundation's clerk she supposes is gay to convince him into refunding, then feels guilty again...

The One with the Home Study
14 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A very funny story with the social worker. I like how Joey tries to get in while Chandler tries to not let the woman know that it is Joey. And I also love how Joey pretends like it was her that never called him. His "Do you know how many women I had to sleep with to get over you?" was an absolutely brilliant line!

The story of Mike and Phoebe isn't so bad either. It is just sad to see Phoebe like that, she sure got influenced by Monica to be selfish and care about her wedding day more than the kids. Phoebe in the past would have never done that. but it did end up in a pretty funny story, especially since their donation was even rejected at the end
