Chandler supposed interest for Sharks
4 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Ross and Phoebe talk about Phoebe's relationship with Mike, and Ross let Phoebe stay insecure and crying, since he told her that she never had a serious relationship with anyone and that she doesn't care to anything. He tried to tell her that he envy her lifestyle, but it turns out to look quite the opposite to Phoebe, making her have a terrible date with Mike.

Ross feels responsible for that and talks to Mike to see if he can help the situation, but he tells Mike that Phoebe never had a serious relationship and makes thing even worst. (And Phoebe even more angry with him)

Joey meets a girl in Central Perk and has success in asking her to a date. Everything goes well, until Joey go to the girl's house: there, he is almost sure that he already had sex with her,since he remembers her apartment.

Monica decides to go to Tulsa to make Chandler a surprise. When she arrives and opens Chandler's apartment's door, she sees Chandler touching himself. When she sees the TV, there is a shark program on air, and she stays convicted that he masturbates watching Shark porn.
