  • Phoebe has to pick up the pieces of Joey's heart following his brief love affair with her twin, Ursula. Ross fears he will not make a good dad and Rachel ends up the ER and takes home more than just a large bill.

    This is the conclusion episode and I have to tell you, this one rocked. The first episode was boring, slow, and nothing happened. They really could have condensed all of this into one episode as all the action occured in the second part. I found the funniest exchange when Rachel has to pretend to be Monica and Monica pretends to be Rachel during an encounter to the ER when Rachel falls taking down Christmas lights. They meet up with two very handsome doctors, played by George Clooney & Noah Wyle. The following night the 4 go on a date. Rachel wants to come clean to the guys, but Monica is too afraid. The girls get into a big fight and end up scaring the guys away when they reveal each other's biggest secrets in an attempt to see who can out-humiliate the other. The scene at the end is the most touching and can be a tear-jerker. Ross finally realizes he will make a great dad when Marcel requires surgery for ingesting Scrabble tiles. When Marcel wakes from surgery, he squeezes Ross hand, almost as a sign of comfort and security.
  • Hillarious. A great episode. One of the best from the first season.

    This is a fantastic episode, hilarious, and with Noah Wyle and George Clooney guest starring how could it not be great. Rachel decides to finally take down the Christmas lights and in the process falls and sprains her ankle. When they get to the hospital Rachel tells Monica that she doesn't have insurance, so after much begging Monica lets her use her insurance. After they learn that it's only a sprain, they ask the very cute doctors (Noah Wyle and George Clooney) out. At the same time Joey doesn't realize why Ursula isn't talking to him. Pheobe goes to talk to her and Ursula says that it's over and that Joey will figure it out eventually. Pheobe pretends to be Ursula to tell Joey it's over, but after she kisses him he realizes that it's not Ursula. When the two doctor's arrive at Monica and Pheobe's apartment, the girls have just gotten into a fight. And mess up their date completely. Ross realizes that he'll be a good father when Marcel squeezes his hand in the emergency room. I liked Part 2 much better than Part 1, because it was much funnier, especially with Monica and Pheobe fighting. Also, I love George Clooney and Noah Wyle, so it was great to see them on the show.

    After weeks of procrastinating, Rachel finally takes down the Christmas light on their balcony, only to fall off the balcony and sprain her ankle. At the hospital, Rachel - who has no insurance - cajoles Monica into trading identities so she can use Monica's coverage. When Ursula breaks Joey's heart Phoebe tries to fix it.

    Trivia: Ursulla Buffay appears in many episodes after this one. As the same, unnice sister.

    If you watch the shots between the two sisters and then in the later series, you can see that the camera work has seriously improved.

The nurse can't believe they still had their Christmas lights up. Rachel glares at the nurse who gives Monica a clipboard of forms. She asks Rachel who to put for emergency contact. Rachel says "you," which makes Monica happy. Monica asks about her insurance. Rachel doesn't have any, but she persuades Monica to let her switch identities with her so she can use her insurance coverage.
    At Central Perk, Chandler, Joey, and Ross hang out. Joey reads the comics as Ross talks about his dream last night where he is playing football and uses his baby as the ball. Which proves to Ross that he is not ready for father-hood.
    Joey asks the guys if either have ever been to the Rainbow Room, a very expensive restaurant that he is taking Ursula to for her birthday. Ross asks Joey what he is going to do about Phoebe's birthday. Joey didn't know it was on the same day. He sticks to his original plan, hoping Phoebe will understand that he won't be with her on her birthday.
    Monica & Rachel wait for the doctor. When the doctor arrives, it is Noah Wyle & George Clooney. Dr. Rosen & Dr. Mitchell respectively. Dr. Mitchell looks over Rachel's forms. Rachel pretends to be Monica and Monica pretends to be Rachel. They smile at the handsome doctors.
    At Monica & Rachel's, all are present except Joey. They are waiting for Phoebe to arrive for her surprise birthday party. Rachel & Monica tell Chandler about the hospital. She had a sprained ankle & the two doctors asked them out. Monica is worried that the doctors will find out they switched identities and charge the girls with insurance fraud.

    After weeks of procrastinating, Rachel finally takes down the Christmas light on their balcony, but she falls off and sprains her ankle causing her to go to to the emergency romm. There she finds out she need insurance but doesn't have any so she pretends she's monica so she can use her's. While at the hospital they met two cute cute doctors (George Cluney and Noah Wylie) and ask them out. Monica is worried that someone is going to find out what they did.

    Joey is still dating Ursula but she talking to him. To make him feel better Phoebe pretends she's Ursula to break up with him.
  • Great episode for season 1.

    9.1
    Considering this is season 1, this is very good. The name mixing up is fantatsic, especially when Monica and Rachel are dating the two docters, and they get angry with each other, and take everything a tad too far. It's also very funny when Chandler, Monica, Rachel and Ross all meet in the hospital, because Monica wants to change the forms and Marcel swallowed a 'K'. Their faces when they see each other is very funny. The Joey and Phoebe storyline is great. It shows the begginning of their wonderful relationship in the seasons to come.

    Overall, an extremely good episode.
  • All right

    8.4
    Well, this is a two part episode and although its first part was not too good, this improves but not by much. It really overemphazises Joey's dumbness when he mets Ursula and can't see the similarity between her and Phoebe (their twins!!) and also he doesn't realise that Phoebe and Ursula's birthday is the same. With Joey going out with Ursula, Phoebe starts to feel neglected and think that Joey will pick Ursula over her. In the end though, Joey is dumped by Ursula after just one date and its up to Phoebe to comfort him... 'Pheebs??'. Also, Rachel gets injured taking down the christmas lights and doesn't have any insurance so has to 'borrow' Monica's!!
  • really shows the connection between joey and pheebs

    9.0
    i love this episode . it really shows a great connection of joey and pheebs and how much phoebe really means to joey as a good friend . the monica and rachel plot was a little weak but pulled strong in the end . and i also love the ross part of this episode , and really seeing him progress as a dad . it gives me the chills of happyness when i see marcell grab one of ross' fingers and squeezes it . definetely one of the most cherished moments/episodes on friends, and season one alone . a very special and fantastic episode.
  • Joey & Phoebe kiss.

    9.5
    The part in which Ursula breaks up with Joey without letting him know. Now we get to see Ursula's true colors. I think Joey was really mean to Phoebe and then Phoebe ends up pretending to be Ursula so Joey wont be heartbroken. And they kiss! Poor Marcel swallowed scrabble pieces. He looked so cute laying in the hospital bed. Now Ross is ready to be a dad, since he has had a connection with a monkey. That part didn't make sense. Monica & Rachel try out insurance fraud. I like how every time they said Rachel, Rachel answered when Monica was supposed to answer. And George Clooney guest stars!
  • Loved this episode

    After weeks of procrastinating, Rachel finally takes down the Christmas light on their balcony, only to fall off the balcony and sprain her ankle. At the hospital, Rachel - who has no insurance - cajoles Monica into trading identities so she can use Monica's coverage. Like I said in the review for the first part this was a much funnier episode. the ER lad s popped by in this one it is good to re watch and see George before he became a huge star. Rachel and Monica were very funny at switching names. Marcel going to hospital was sad and the part where Chandler says "we think he was trying to spell monkey" one of the cleverest lines of the season.
  • Awesome.

    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. Part two of the last episode, which was a really awesome episode. Tut, tut, tut at Joey! Ross is getting all worried about the baby and him being a dad, which is soon. Yumm docters, so funny what happens to Monica and Rachel - legends! Surpise party for Phoebe was so funny, Ross is a legend. Oh and it's so cute whay Phoebe does for Joey or tries - at the point they kiss I always wanted them to be together, for a while at least!
  • This episode is definitely one of my most favorite of them all. Ross's discovery of his fathering skills and the beautiful beginning of Joey and Phoebe's eternal bonding.

    Its starts with Chandler and Joey spotting 'Phoebe' in some restaurant as a waitress and trying to talk to her, but she somehow seems to be behaving very odd (even for Phoebe's Standards). They find out that she is Ursula,Phoebe's twin. Phoebe hates her and actually has solid grounds for feeling like that.
    Unfortunately, Joey falls for her and they go out. Phoebe knowing her twin too well, tries to dissuade him for dating her, but feels she cannot interfere. Joey, on the other hand falls in love with Ursula and in fact fails to come to Phoebe's birthday, celebrating Ursula's instead. Ross has doubts whether he will be a good father even after assurance from Chandler that he is the most caring person in North America. Marcel is cranky and does something with the remote and the audio on the television get set to Spanish. Rachel tries to remove the lightings put during Christmas which she forgot to and ends up slipping from the balcony and getting injured. Monica and Rachel go to the hospital and meet the future ER Doctors (Clooney and Wyle), and invite them to their place while pretending to be each other (due to Rachel's not so surprising lack of medical insurance).Monica and Rachel hilariously point out each other's flaws and Monica ends up telling a really nasty secret to Rachel's father.
    Ursula dumps Joey (without his knowledge) and Phoebe talks to Ursula to come out clear with him. Ursula then comes and talks sweetly with Joey and makes him understand that they cannot date anymore, and then they kiss. After a few seconds, Joey realizes something is wrong and finds out that it is Phoebe impersonating Ursula to soften the blow, building a strong foundation for their friendship throughout the ten seasons. Marcel swallows the scrabble tiles and chokes, Ross springs up and takes him to hospital and Marcel is okay, with the tiles removed and Chandler hilariously stating he was trying to spell out Monkey.Chandler then points out in a rather emotional moment that Ross did come through for the monkey and thats was very 'dad', and Marcel wakes up and holds Ross's finger making him realize that he is capable of being a great father.
    Not often are there episodes which blend in emotional moments and comic sequences so brilliantly and this definitely ranks up as one of the best episodes.
