  • Who's up for some beachy fun? Not the friends.

    Phoebe brings the whole gang with her to a beach house while she visits someone to find out about her father. As it turns out, their fun vacation turned into a boring stay at a house with sand as floors. While Pheobe talks to one of her mother's friends whose also named Pheobe, the other 5 friends try to find something to do to conquer their extreme boredom. Joey suggests strip poker. The rest say no. To decide what to do, Phoebe closes her eyes and spins until she picks someone. Whoever she lands on gets to pick something to do for everyone and they had to go along with it. Phoebe picks Chandler, and he can't think of anything, so he muttered out Strip Poker. They didn't have cards, so they played Strip Happy Days instead. For it being Joey's idea, the gang teamed up on him, only picking him to lose his clothes. By the end of the episode, Joey was completely naked. But finally, Ross's new, previously bald girlfriend walks in and catches up with the others in the game. Rachel is devastated and torn apart. She was hoping that her and Ross could get back together.
