Storyline

Ross gets a part time job as guest lecturer at the university. Joey's health insurance expires because he wasn't paying so he goes to see his agent. Phoebe's psychic says Phoebe will die within a week but she doesn't know how she will be killed. Rachel and Monica sneak into Ross' lecture and find that he is doing a fake British accent. He says he couldn't help it - he was nervous when having his first lecture and the British accent just came out of his mouth. Joey has a hernia but doesn't want to go to the hospital because he isn't covered by insurance anymore. Monica and Rachel fight about some candle holders because both claim they bought them. Phoebe's reading was wrong because her psychic is dead. Ross tries to phase out the accent but everyone notices. Rachel finds out that they are still married and is furious. Joey gets his health insurance back. Written by Anonymous
