Storyline

Ross and Mona took pictures of themselves at the Rockefeller Center and now Mona wants to send the picture as a Holiday card to friends. Ross freaks out at the thought of them sending out Holiday cards together because they've only been dating a couple of months. Ross tries to have a conversation about their relationship and says all the wrong things and ends up giving Mona a key to his apartment. Chandler has to tell his boss that he split up with Monica in order to prevent that Monica has to have dinner with Chandler and his boss. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

It is now at least a week into December -- Rachel conceived in April (known because Monica & Chandler's wedding was booked for May) -- therefore, 8 months have passed. Rachel should be due sometime in January and quite large by now. She maintains in dialogue with Phoebe that she is only "4 months", a total chronological inconsistency. See more »
