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 »

Quotes

Rachel: I mean, the way you owned up to everything it just... proved how much you had grown, you know? I mean my mom never thought this would work out. She was like: "Once a cheater, always a cheater."
Ross: [getting angrier and angrier] Mm hm.
Rachel: Oh. I just wish we hadn't lost these last four months.
Rachel: [taps Ross's face] But if time was what was needed to gain a little perspective.
Ross: [unable to restrain himself any longer, he screams] WE. WERE. ON. A. BREEEAAAK!

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.
