Storyline

The episode picks up exactly where the last one ended. Ross chose Rachel's room and they kiss. Ross breaks up with Bonnie. Phoebe learns that her real mother, her supposed mother and her father used to be together and Phoebe's real mother (also called Phoebe). Phoebe is mad at her for not trying to come find her before. Joey, Chandler and Monica are at the beach when Monica is stung by a jellyfish. Chandler had to pee on Monica's leg to relief her of the pain. Ross unintentionally takes full responsibility for everything that went wrong between him and Rachel. Phoebe's mum comes to apologize and to tell Phoebe she regrets giving her up as a baby. Ross and Rachel get into another fight because Ross says he doesn't believe he was the one who did anything wrong. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Previously, Matt LeBlanc has just done the voiceover work during the "Previously..." two part episode recaps. As he is now in vision in character as Joey for this episode recap, it could now be considered plausible that every "The one with..." is a dramatisation of Joey recounting a situation episode.

Goofs

When Phoebe leaves her birth mother's house, her green purse is still visible in the background on the counter. But in the next scene back at the beach house, the green purse is on her shoulder as she walks past Chandler, Joey, and Monica and heads upstairs. - Phoebe comes back in with her hand over her eyes since she said she never wants to see her birth mother again, asking where her purse is. This scene was likely cut short for television broadcasts but explains why she has it coming back to the beach house. See more »
