Episode Summary

EDIT

The friends are looking forward to Phoebe's birthday dinner as it will be a rare opportunity for them to all be together. Joey and Phoebe arrive at the restaurant first and have to struggle to hold on to a table for six, since there are just the two of them. Before going to dinner, since she's ovulating, Monica plans to sleep with Chandler when he gets home from Tulsa. When she discovers that he's been smoking, they have a fight that delays their plans. Rachel is worried about leaving Emma for the first time. While waiting for his mother to arrive to babysit, Ross inadvertently locks himself and Rachel out of his apartment with Emma inside. When the four of them finally arrive late for dinner, Phoebe is hurt, so when she gets a call from Mike, she leaves. The others decide to follow suit leaving Joey to enjoy all six of their meals--and Phoebe's birthday cake--by himself.
