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.

Rachel tells her father she is pregnant!
15 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rachel invites Phoebe to dinner with her and her father. Rachel still didn't tell her father that she is pregnant, and she wants Phoebe's support for that. Rachel tries to tell her father about her pregnancy in many times, but since he is a very aggressive person, she ends up giving up. Phoebe helps her in tell her father about the idea of being a grandfather, but she eventually invents a wedding with Ross to not make her father upset or thinking that his grandson will be a bastard.

Phoebe sees the stripper from Monica's bachelorette party and ends up revealing to Chandler about her secret party. Chandler is revolted that Monica had a party and he didn't, and Joey didn't like very much the idea too, since he wanted to make a party for Chandler. Monica feels bad with that and gives Chandler a woman's number, that she thinks it is a stripper, to make Chandler better, but the woman is in fact,a prostitute.

Ross and Mona are getting along, but Ross still didn't say anything to her about Rachel's baby. When they are together in a romantic situation in Ross' house, Rachel's father arrives and discuss with Ross about him making Rachel pregnant without even marrying her. This makes Ross' and Mona's situation a crap, to say the least.
