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

Chandler says he can sometimes hear Joey screaming at him late at night like he did at the beach. Joey says that he just does that to freak Chandler out. However, Phoebe, Ross, and Rachel are all in the same clothes as they were at the beach indicating that it is still the same day. Therefore, Joey would not have been able to do the shouting late at night as they have not slept yet and certainly could not have been a few times as was implied. See more »

Quotes

Ross: And for the record, it took *two* people to break up this relationship!
Rachel: Yeah! You, and that girl from the copy place, which yesterday you took full responsibility for!
Ross: I didn't know what I was taking responsibility for, okay? I didn't finish the whole letter!
Rachel: What?
Ross: I fell asleep!
Rachel: You fell asleep?
Ross: It was five thirty in the morning. And you had rambled on for eighteen pages. FRONT AND BACK!

The One With Phoebe's Birth Mother...
19 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's one of the funniest episodes of the series. Many things happen in this episode, that will just make you laugh so hard.

In this episode, everyone is still at the beach, following Season 3's Finale. Monica gets stung by a jellyfish and Chandler and Joey have to pee on her leg. Yes, gross. Don't worry, they don't actually show it. That would be weird. And gross. Phoebe finds out that her mother isn't really her birth mother. Phoebe, the woman she went to see, is. And Phoebe (normal Phoebe) is having a hard time adjusting to the fact that her mother and her grandmother lied to her. Ross accidentally falls asleep whilst reading Rachel's letter. And unknowingly takes full responsibility for their breakup. They get back together for a while, and then break up because he says that it wasn't all his fault. Even though it was.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
