  • Joey falls hard for Phoebe's twin sister, Ursula, much to Phoebe's dismay. Ross takes Carol to Lamaze class and the reality of becoming a dad begins to hit him.

    7.1
    I found this episode to be boring and banal. I always liked the show Mad About You and Lisa Kudrow does a wonderful performance as the ditzy waitress Ursula. But in this episode, NBC tries to go for Sweeps rating by doing a cross-over between these shows. It rarely works and this episode is no exception. Only it's worse because they made it into a two-parter. The usual comedic relief is barely audible in this episode as the normal loveable character of Phoebe splits into a different, darker side that is more dramatic. Even when there was a moment for silliness, such as when Ross accompanies Susan & Carol to Lamaze, nothing happens.
  • Great Episode

    Joey falls for Phoebe's twin sister, Ursula, making Phoebe feel neglected. Meanwhile, Chandler finds himself between a rock and a hard place, when he is told to fire an employee he is attracted to. And Ross has doubts about parenthood when he attends Lamaze classes with Carol and Susan.

    The Scenes where Ross mimics giving birth while Susan stands at the sidelines are simply tearjerkingly funny.
  • Another great installment

    this episode is two parted. We meet Ursala, who is Pheobe's identical twin sister! But somehow Joey is attracted to Ursala wich is technically physically impossible because her and Pheobe are identical twins! Pheobe is not happy at all about Joey dating her sister because she feels as it will ruin their relationship and it sort of does when Joey pays Ursala more attention.

    Chandler is attracted to a certain woman but he finds out he has to fire her, he does what he cans to keep her only things start to get out of hand and don't go according to plan!

He ends up asking her out then if she'll marry him when the tension is too much and he has to fire her.

    And Ross has doubts about parenthood when he attends Lamaze classes with Carol and Susan.
  • Not the best.

    For Friends, this is really not too good. It's probaly the worst episode of Season 1, but it is the first attempt for a 2 parter episode and they only get better from here. However, there are some good things and the guest stars are quite good. They are Carol and Susan and they are portrayed excellently and make a great contribution to the show. Ross goes to lamze classes with Carol and Susan and starts to have doubts about fatherhood. Joey falls for Phoebe's twin sister, Ursula, (but can't see the similarity!) and then Phoebe starts to feel neglected, especially when he Joey fails to turn up at her birthday party.

  • Ursula is introduced.

    9.5
    Well even though this episode, I feel like it doesn't deserve a two-parter, the episode is still like really good. In part one, Joey starts dating Ursula. Phoebe is upset fro that matter. And wants to stop the relationship. I love the cliffhanger. Phoebe knocking on Joey's door, and Ursula coming out. Meanwhile Rachel falls off the roof. That was a great cliffhanger. Carol gets afraid of having the baby while going to Lamaze classes. Susan & Ross bond, that was a very interesting plot. I would not want to put myself in Chandler's situation. I guess he got what he deserved.
  • good

And Ross has doubts about parenthood when he attends Lamaze classes with Carol and Susan. This one was a good episode but part 2 was much better and the Ursala Pheobe thing I never found that funny to be honest. Ross at the classes was great thoough where he was the wife haha. The ending where Rachel falls off the terrace was funny too. .5 out of 10

    Joey falls for Phoebe's twin sister, Ursula, making Phoebe feel neglected. Meanwhile, Chandler finds himself between a rock and a hard place, when he is told to fire an employee he is attracted to. Ross has doubts about parenthood when he attends Lamaze classes with Carol and Susan. Meanwhile, Monica tries to fix her TV after Marcel puts the TV on "SAP" function, which she can't turn off. Ursula dumps Joey, but doesn't plan to tell him, so Phoebe disguises herself as her twin sister to dump Joey and make sure he doesn't get hurt. After weeks of procrastinating, Rachel finally takes down the Christmas lights on their balcony, only to fall off the balcony and sprain her ankle. At the hospital, Rachel - who has no health insurance - cajoles Monica into trading identities so she can use Monica's coverage. The girls end up trying to date two cute doctors (characters from the show ER, one played by George Clooney the other Played by Noah Wyle). Ross doubts that he will ever feel like a father. Chandler gets stuck with the task of removing the "SAP" function from Monica's TV. Awesome episode as always. I love the monkey storyline. I also love the way Phoebe is about her twin sister in this episode. Oh and Chandler and Joey are legends together!
