Chandler finds out that Monica had a bacholerette party with stripper even though they promised not to have bachelor/bachelorette parties. Rachel takes Phoebe to have dinner with Rachel's dad because she is afraid her dad will be really angry when Rachel tells him she's pregnant. Mr Green is delighted to hear he will be grandfather but freaks out when he finds out that Rachel isn't getting married so she just tells him Ross won't marry her. Monica feels bad about having had a bachelorette party so she organizes a bachelor party including a stripper for Chandler. Joey is the only "guest" at Chandler's bachelor party because Chandler is embarrassed and doesn't really want to have the party. The stripper comes a-knocking but turns out to be a hooker. Mr Green goes to see Ross to yell at him but unfortunately for Ross Mona is there too so they are both yelling at Ross. Rachel explains everything to her dad and Mona who makes up with Ross.

The One with the Stripper
3 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode we once again get to see what a worthless scum Monica is. She ruined Chandler's Bachelor night but had no problem with having one herself. Let's just think what she would have done if it was another way around. And her making him a post marriage Bachelor party was selfishness as well, she just did it to feel better about herself, Chandler wasn't comfortable about it. Glad they didn't show us more of her stripping, would make me want to puke

Luckily the episode got saved by the awesome story of Rachel's father finding out about her pregnancy and the fact that she isn't getting married. Ron Leibman made a great performance in this episode. It was especially great when he met with Ross while Mona was around. It is incredibly funny and very well performed both by him and David Schwimmer
