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

Best line in the episode!
23 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Okay so yet again, another fantastic episode of the best programme ever! (IMO anyway!) One of the best parts in this episode is at the end when all the friends are in Monica and Rachel's apartment and they are discussing Monica's jellyfish sting - Joey says something about something he watched on the Nat.Geography channel (i think it's that programme =/ ] and Ross turns and says, 'Oh yeah the Geography channel, with the jellyfish an... ewwww!' when he realises that Joey must have peed on Monica! Then the girls turn and all chorus 'ewwww'! - hilarious! But for me the best line in this entire episode is at then end when Ross realises what he took responsibility for and Rachel tells him that it's definitely over between them (her and Ross) then as he storms out of the door she runs after him and shouts, 'just so you know, it's *not* that common, it *doesn't* happen to every guy and it *IS* a big deal!' Loved it!
