Storyline

The superintendent makes Rachel cry because he is upset about them clogging the trash shoot. Chandler is a member at the gym even though he doesn't go but he can't quit because the dreamy spandex girl always changes his mind. The superintendent wants to throw out Monica and Rachel because Monica has been illegally subletting the apartment. Phoebe has a crush on her client Rick but she would get fired for fooling around with him. Ross goes to the gym with Chandler to give him courage to quit. But when Maria appears Ross can't say no to a membership. Joey goes to convince the superintendent not to kick our Monica and Rachel. In turn for that favour Joey will help the superintendent practice dancing for the superintendents' ball. They have the great idea to close their accounts at the bank so the gym can't charge them. Joey begins to enjoy the ballroom dancing. Phoebe and Rick make out. Phoebe finds out that Rick is married and also gets fired because her boss caught them kissing. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Ross: So why don't you quit?
Chandler: You don't think I've tried? You think I like have 50 dollars taken out of my bank account every month? No, they make you go all the way down there! Then they use all these phrases and peppiness to try to confuse you. And then they bring out Maria.
Ross: Who is Maria?
Chandler: Ah, Maria. You can't say no to her. She's like this lycra/spandex covered gym... treat.
