Storyline

Chandler hires a maid to clean the apartment and Monica promises to give her a chance. Eric broke up with Ursula and asks Phoebe out for lunch but he is still upset about Ursula and can't look at Phoebe without seeing Ursula. Rachel is looking for an apartment because she can't stay with Joey once the baby is here. Monica is very patient with the cleaning lady but thinks the girl stole her jeans and is wearing them. Monica remembers dropping ink and making a stain in the crotch of the jeans and tries to find out if they really are her jeans. Phoebe and Eric make out but then Eric accidentally has sex with Ursula thinking it's Phoebe and that's the end of Phoebe and Eric's relationship. Monica makes Chandler make a move on Brenda to see whether the jeans are stained or not. It turns out Rachel borrowed Monica's jeans but Brenda quit already. Joey doesn't want Rachel to move out so he builds a baby room in his apartment to show Rachel that it would work with all of them living there. ... Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Monica thinks the maid has stolen and is wearing her pink bra and convinces Chandler to sneak a peek. But when Chandler agrees, he says to Monica, "Okay, but if it's not her bra, can you just let the woman clean the apartment?" He should have said, "If it's not *your* bra." See more »

The One With The Twin Mix-Up...
1 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so funny. I honestly love that Monica, of all people, gets a maid. She can't even enjoy it because she likes to do things herself.

In this episode, Chandler hires a maid so Monica doesn't have to do all of the cleaning herself. Even though Monica loves to clean. But she thinks the maid is stealing her stuff. When she tries to see if the maid is wearing her jeans, by checking the crotch area for a stain, the maid runs off and quits. Monica realizes that she's wearing the bra she thought was stolen, and Rachel borrowed the jeans. Meanwhile, Phoebe and Eric are together, but break up after Eric "accidentally" sleeps with Ursula. That's just too weird.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
