Storyline

Chandler and Monica are happy together - their worst problem is his habit to put CDs in the wrong box and their different taste in music. Rachel is desperate to get back at good terms with Joey, so she takes Monica's advice to change the subject to something work-related. However in another uncomfortable conversation she manages to convince Joey that her boss, Mr. Zelner, wants to buy her baby. When Phoebe resumes reading tea leaves, she sees that she'll meet the man of her dreams soon, and takes that to be Jim, who she keeps bumping into. However she soon finds he isn't quite that nice, and may be too crazy even for her! Ross is determined to get his favorite pink ('light salmon shade') shirt back from Mona's, so he sneaks in with the key, and dives behind the couch when she enters with a studly new lover...

Trivia

When Ross comes to Central Perk to ask his friends if they've seen his "salmon" colored shirt, the T-shirt he is wearing says "friend" in American Sign Language. See more »

Goofs

Phoebe reads the gang's tea leaves to tell their fortunes. But a coffee house like Central Perk is unlikely to offer a lot more than basic Lipton sachets - certainly not loose tea leaves. See more »

Quotes

Rachel Green: I thought Joey and I would be OK once we hung out but it's like we don't even know how to be with each other anymore.
Chandler Bing: I know it's tough now, but things will get better.
Rachel Green: How do you know that? What if it just gets worse and worse and worse to the point where we can't even be in the same room with each other?
Chandler Bing: I'm not great at the advice... Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?

Joey and Rachel are not talking
17 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Joey is hiding from Rachel, because he is feeling rejected, since she only sees him as a friend.

Since from when he told her about this feelings, the whole situation is weird. Rachel misses Joey, and asks Monica and Chandler to tell him that. (But Joey is hearing everything in another room)

Later, Rachel complains again about the fact that she and Joey don't have anything to talk, and Monica makes Rachel invent anything to have a subject to chat with Joey. Rachel ends up inventing that her boss wants to buy her baby, and this makes Joey go to Rachel's work to teach him a lesson.

Ross is upset that his favorite pink shirt (that he calls ''salmon'') is in Mona's house. They didn't end their relationship very well, so he doesn't feel comfortable to go to her house to take his things.

Phoebe talks to a guy that she sees everywhere she goes, and they set up a date. Unfortunately to Phoebe, the guy not only is weird, but also stays talking dirty to her all the time.

Ross goes to Mona's house (without her know) to take his shirt . But the situation gets pretty much uncomfortable when Mona enters in the house with another guy.
