Storyline

Phoebe dates an East European UN diplomat, Sergei, and asks Monica to join them at a restaurant to keep his translator company as Sergei cannot speak English. When Ross brings a picnic to Rachel's office, Rachel becomes fed up with Ross's neediness and suggests they take a break. Ross seeks comfort in the bar where Joey and Chandler are trying to impress Chloe, the copy girl they both have a crush on. Ross and Rachel are trying to make up on the phone when Ross hears Mark, who insisted he come over. Mark, knowing Rachel is on the phone with Ross, makes his voice audible to him so Ross assumes the worst and hangs up on Rachel. He then has one too many beers and sleeps with Chloe.

Trivia

When Ross takes the picnic to Rachel's office and sets fire to her desk she says to the person she is on the phone to 'I have Shemp in my office'. She is referring to Shemp Howard, best known for his role as the 3rd Stooge in The Three Stooges. See more »

Goofs

Ross would never have been allowed up to Rachel's office after hours. A security guard would have had to contact Rachel for permission. He also puts her job in jeopardy by bringing alcohol into the office. If Sophie didn't like Rachel, she could have told Joanna the next day. See more »
