Storyline

The episode picks up exactly where the last one ended. Ross chose Rachel's room and they kiss. Ross breaks up with Bonnie. Phoebe learns that her real mother, her supposed mother and her father used to be together and Phoebe's real mother (also called Phoebe). Phoebe is mad at her for not trying to come find her before. Joey, Chandler and Monica are at the beach when Monica is stung by a jellyfish. Chandler had to pee on Monica's leg to relief her of the pain. Ross unintentionally takes full responsibility for everything that went wrong between him and Rachel. Phoebe's mum comes to apologize and to tell Phoebe she regrets giving her up as a baby. Ross and Rachel get into another fight because Ross says he doesn't believe he was the one who did anything wrong. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Joey, Monica and Chandler tell the group about how Chandler had to pee on Monica after she got stung by a jellyfish. Chandler says about Joey, "He kept screaming, 'Do it! Do it now!' Sometimes at night I can still hear the screaming," insinuating that this conversation took place a few days after their return from the beach. However, Phoebe, Ross and Rachel are all wearing the same outfits as in the beginning of the episode when they were still at the beach. See more »

The One with the Jellyfish
6 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I think this is one of the episodes where I can't stand Rachel the most. Whats a selfish *****! First ruining Ross's relationship and only then saying that she doesn't want back unless he takes responsibility for the break up and makes him read a huge letter in the night! And he shouldn't, they were on a break! Well serves Ross right for choosing someone like Rachel over a fun free spirited girl who just happened to shave her head. But this whole story brings lots of funny moments. A lot of them thanks to David Schwimmer and his facial expressions. He is great at it!

The story of jellyfish is fun too. Only problem is that they again do this exaggerated acting when they talk about it to the rest of the friends and I must say Courtney Cox is very bad at it. But this scene also brings one of the best lines: "That's right, I stepped up. She is my friend, if i had to I would pee on any one of you!".

Great! Phoebe's story is funny too. Especially the part where she talks to Ursula about the birth mom
