Ross says that Emma is 2 months old, and in the previous episode they say it's Halloween (so birth date in late August, which more or less correlates with it being very hot at Rachel's due date). However, in season 8, while Rachel is pregnant and they have the Thanksgiving dinner, she is about 4 months pregnant (so birth in April/May), meaning that Emma should be about 6-7 months old by the time of Halloween/Thanksgiving. However, in the 7th season, when Monica buys her wedding dress, she says that her wedding is on May 15th. We know that Rachel gets pregnant about 1 month before the wedding (birth in January). Therefore, she could only be 2 months old in early November if Ross's statement in this episode is correct and all other dates are incorrect. See more »

This episode was amazingly funny. Basically Freddie Prinze Jr. plays Sandy a lovable male nanny. Freddie played this part really well i thought he made it so the character was believable and Sandys true colours shine through. It's a very different role than Freddie is used to playing and i thought he would kind of suck at this type of character after seeing him in She's all that and I know what you did last summer in which the roles are fairly similar. But he proved me wrong and made me laugh so much it was just the way he reacted to certain things going on in the episode. This is a friends episode which is worth while seeing and along as Freddie in the script making you laugh Chandler is also very funny in this episode in his dilemma. I strongly recommend seeing it. See how funny it is for yourself.
