Storyline

Chandler's boss orders him to tell his foxy junior co-worker Nina that she's fired but he can't and ends up dating her instead. He tells the boss she's in therapy as she is unable to handle or even remember her sacking. Chandler even promises her a raise! Ross's monkey Marcel has become systematically troublesome, yet he's the only one who masters the TV control's foreign language channels in Monica's apartment. Ross joins Carol and Susan in Lamaze class which turns into a disaster when Carol can't come and he has to play her part. A birth video makes Carol decide 'not to go through' with the birth anyway. Chandler and Joey find Phoebe's twin sister Ursula working in a bar. Joey asks for Phoebe's blessing to date her sister which is reluctantly given. Written by KGF Vissers

"Dad It's George Clooney!!"
26 November 2014 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

"Dad It's George Clooney!!" is the most excited my son has got watching Friends with me.

Plot In A Paragraph: Joey upsets Phoebe by dating her twin sister Ursula. Rachel injures her ankle and goes to the hospital for x rays with Monica. Once there she reveals she has no insurance, so swaps identities with Monica, complications arise when they are asked out by two cute doctors (Guest stars George Clooney and Noah Wyle) and Rachel accepts. Meanwhile Chandler has to fire Nina, the beautiful girl he has just started dating.

Perry brings the laughs, Clooney brings star power in his guest spot, but it Lisa Kudrow who deserves the plaudits for her dual role of Phoebe and Ursula Buffay.
