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.

It's actually a joke because Gunther (from central perk) asked the guys "do you even know my last name?" And chandler responded "gunther central perk?" See more
