Episode Summary

EDIT

Joey participates in a PBS telethon to aid his career, but it reignites an old hatred Phoebe has towards the network. It also opens up a debate between Joey and Phoebe as to whether there is such a thing as an unselfish act. Meanwhile, to hide her relationship with Chandler, Monica tries to convince Rachel that her secret lover is someone from work. When it gets back to Chandler that Monica's secret lover is "the best she's ever had", Monica finds his resulting ego-trip insufferable.
