  • This episode has Monica having sex with a high school senior, who lied about his age, telling her he was a college senior. Rachel has sex dreams about each of the three men. And Ross finally gets the call he has been waiting for: Carol's in labor.

    In my opinion, this episode was 20 minutes of pure filler fluff. They were just a means to an end. And that end was to get to the point where Ross finally gets the call that Carol, his ex-wife, is in labor and he will become a real father. That moment of his realization is pure zen, especially when he jumps up on the coffee table, hops over the couch but falls flat on his face. That is great. Unfortunately that is only 2% of the episode. The rest is kind of average. Monica dates a younger guy, only she doesn't realize how young he is until they have sex. Very cliche. Chandler is mad that since he became boss, no one at his work likes him anymore. But in truth, didn't they always not like him? Even before his promotion? And Rachel has sex dreams involving each of the 3 guys.
