    This episode is fantastic. The whole part of Ross trying to figure out where he stands with his future baby and his ex-wife and her girlfriend is hilarious and also poignant. I know this is a comedy, but the writing and the humor is well used to make a point: where do fathers belong? Not in a lesbian relationship, but we have seemed to alienate men from the role of parenting, taking on the whole "supermom" persona of the 90s. Back to the funny, I laughed so hard when Ross was in the Obstretician's office, waiting for the Doctor to come in for the ultrasound and he looked around. When he came across the speculum and put it up to his mouth, thinking it reminded him of a duck, that was classic. And when Carol tells him that speculum inserts inter her cervix, he drops it like a hot potato and has an expression on his face that is priceless.
