Ross decides that Joey will be his best man but after the bachelor party Joey sleeps with the stripper they hired and she steals Ross' ring. Phoebe has terrible mood swings and is bitchy because of the hormones. Monica and Rachel throw her a very depressing baby shower because Phoebe won't have the babies so they give her presents she can use after her pregnancy but it only makes Phoebe angry. Joey desperately tries to retrieve the ring which has been in the Geller family for generations. Ross freaks out when he hears about the ring so the guys ring the stripper to get the ring back. It turns out she didn't take the ring but the duck swallowed it so they go to the vet and get the ring back. Joey wants to step back and let Chandler be best man but Ross wants them both to be there.

The fake name that Chandler uses to get the stripper to come to his office is Gunther Centralperk, a lukewarm tribute to the quirky waiter at the gang's favorite hangout. See more »


After the bachelor party, when Joey unlocks his door and is demonstrating how the duck is trained, you can see where the set ends on the bottom left corner. See more »


Ross: Everything so far sounds great, Joey. Just remember, keep it on the mellow side, okay? Just a couple of guys hanging out, playing poker. No strippers or anything, okay?
Joey: You got it!
Ross: OK, see you later.
Chandler: Have fun planning your "mellow" bachelor party!
Joey: Well, there's gonna be strippers there. He didn't say anything about no strippers.
Chandler: He just said, "No strippers."
Joey: Oh. I chose not to hear that.

The One with the Worst Best Man Ever
11 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode isn't too bad. What I liked the most was Phoebe's story. I liked how they made a story about her being upset that she will have to give away her babies. And it was so sweet how the girls told her that she was not losing them completely, she will still be an aunt and get to love them, which is very true! And this story had also it's funny moments with Phoebe being mean to the point she scared Monica and Rachel. Or when Monica yells for "the book" and Rachel brings the Bible

The story of Ross and his best men was not bad either. Was interesting to see whom he will choose at the end and his decision was the right one. I just didn't find the story with the ring too catchy or exciting
