This one is very funny!
4 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Chandler tell the Friends that he needs to go to Tulsa to Work, and he is going to stay there for 1 year. Monica is upset, and the Friends are all upset to see them moving, but Monica is decided to stay with Chandler no matter what, since she says that she cannot stay too distant from him. But when an interesting Job as the Headchef in JAVU shows up, she changes her mind.

Phoebe and Joey decide to bring someone interesting to each other, in a type of double date. Phoebe finds an interesting girl for Joey, but Joey forgets to find a guy for Phoebe,since he almost doesn't have male friends. He finds a guy in the Central Perk with the same name he invented to Phoebe (''Mike'') and asks him to pretend to be his friend in their dinner.

Rachel stays calling Emma's pediatrician every time anything silly happens to her daughter. Ross tells her that she needs to give him a break, but she doesn't stop calling him and the doctor ends up giving up of being Emma's pediatrician. Rachel has the idea of contact Ross and Monica's ex pediatrician, but Ross tells her that he died. (Of course, she later finds out that Ross continues to go to the pediatrician, in one of the most funny scenes of all series!)
