Monica struggles to decide between Richard and Chandler. Meanwhile, Rachel and Phoebe discuss their backup plans if they are not married before the time they're 40.
Have you guys seen Chandler?
-You don't really believe that.
-Sure, I do.
And that's just an ordinary pig,
not even a pig that's good at sports.
Whoa, whoa, whoa!
What is all this pressure?
Like if neither of them are married
by 40, they marry each other.
-You know Chandler.
-No, I don't know Chandler.
Richard said he wants to marry you?
You got that from what I said?
Thanks. Yeah, I really thought
we'd be able to make it work.
I mean, we know each other,
we like each other. . .
Although, believe me,
she wanted to do a lot more than that.
And I would have if these damn
boat shoes wouldn't keep flying off!
Look, us getting our asses kicked
is not a solution.
That coconut phone
might be good for the boat.
I'll just leave the door open
and go sit on the couch.
No. That's art.
How could you do this to me?
Remember my promise:
I should be with a grownup, you know?
I need to be with someone
who wants the same things.
Or Chandler wanting to marry me now.
I don't know.
Well, all right, one thing happened.
I'm willing to offer her those things.
This was just a plan.
This isn't fair.
And can I give you a piece of advice?
I hate that.

and Ralph Lauren came in.
The next thing I know,
we're making out!
That's what I was afraid of. Okay. . . .
Joey, it's Anne Geddes.
She's a famous artist.
You know, you got the candles and
the "foofy schmoofer" thing here.
Tonight is your date with Hillary.
Yes, I saw them from outside.
. . .it's the best gossip
she's heard all year.
"Phoebe, I love you.
Kiss me, please. "
I don't know what I'm gonna do.
The date starts in an hour.
Hello? Ross, could you put up
some of these flyers for me?
You know what?
I'm gonna go over to Joey's.
I just feel like I need
to be in a "guy" place. . .
Well, it turns out that's not true.
. . .sleeping with Ralph is not
gonna get you my job.
You could cut the sexual tension
in here with a knife.
You're a really great listener.
You've got a picture of a baby
dressed like flowers!
You're turning into a woman.
What if Kenny were the real brains
behind the whole company?
The only thing you can do.
Sleep with him.
Are you gonna eat that bread?
Maybe I'll just turn down
the lights a little?
Yes. They're insanely white.
But he said,
"And you will never get promoted. . .

Rachel and Phoebe decide to start running together, but Rachel is thrown off by the fact that Phoebe runs like a four-year-old. Joey finds a sexy new female roommate. Chandler decides to surprise Monica by cleaning the apartment, but forgets where everything goes. Ross tries to help him fix the apartment before Monica gets home.
Did you interview her
before you asked her to move in?
. . .how horrible it was when you
bumped into her at the supermarket?
Well, that's gonna be tough, Mon.
I have to tie my shoes, so you
go ahead. I'll catch up.
. . .and the Six Million Dollar Man.
Pheebs, Monica tripped me. I don't
think I can ever run again, ever!
Okay. I am officially unpacked.
I've got this built-up flirting energy,
and I don't know how to get rid of it.
No, you just reminded me
that I have to do my stretches too.
I'm gonna hit the shower.
Please, I'm not an idiot.
So, Mondler. . . .
Yes. I'm gonna put it back
exactly where I found it.
Actually, this will work out well.
Oh, my God.
She's going to sit on you.
-You're just hanging out with Ross?
-It's all good! Okay, bye!
That'll be the easiest.
Let's start with the couch.
We move the couch
closer to the coffee table.
Monica's gonna kill you!
Remember when we went to a dance. . .
They don't like it when you
keep asking them if they like you.
Phoebe, I just wanted to say
I'm sorry, okay?
Well, the reason I didn't
want to go running with you is. . .
Yes, but still they are people. . .
What? I am not uptight.
Didn't you ever run so fast
you thought your legs would fall off. . .
Who cares? I repel women.
. . .a "guy" problem.
We've got to get everything
back into its original place.
I've got some beer for you.
Is something wrong?
. . .and it's a huge mistake
for us to continue down this road.
How you doing?

Chandler and Monica are moving in with each other, which means Rachel is moving in with Phoebe and Joey will be without a roommate. Meanwhile Ross doesn't want to help with the packing so he stays at home with Ben, or so they think. Joey doesn't know how to live by himself, so Chandler decides to "lose" money to him in various games.
Of course I'm packed.
What you're wearing is fine
I am lousy at packing, right?
Everybody has to help.
Phoebe, can you help?
Now, it's too late for me,
but save yourselves!
Fine. Now, Ross--
I wish I knew that.
I ordered Chinese.
. . .China, apparently.
we said we were gonna have fun.
This doesn't have to be so sad,
though, you know?
does Rachel move the phone pen?
It doesn't count if you have to
read them off your hand. . .
Give me a chance to win my money back.
Sudden death. . .
Okay, talk to you later.
I wash the toilets 1 7 times a day,
even if people are on it! "
"Oh, my God! I love Ross. I hate
Ross. I love Ross. I hate Ross! "
There are other ways to win back
your money. How about blackjack?
It needs to go about 20 blocks
to the left.
Really? How come all your
stuff is in this box?
I'm just mad.
Now, after you receive the doubling
bonus, you get one card.
I'm just gonna label it
"What were you thinking?"
Good start, Mon.
. . .she covers me with a blanket.
You made it so easy.
Bring Monica, and we'll live together!
We'll have so much fun!
Yeah, it's a pumpkin. I'll come pack.
What if I bought it from you?
You tried to give me charity,
I said no, you dropped it.
You gotta get it out of your head
that I can't take care of myself.

-How long is Denise gone for?
-She said she'd be back December 26th.
Okay, I got us a court date
for tomorrow at 2. . .
Oh, I am so mad, Ross! I don't think
I've ever been this angry!
No. You sound like me.
Pheebs, when you're done over there,
we've got a situation over here too.
Mon, be in charge of diapering.
. . .and carnauba wax
and polishing compound.
Yeah, she tops out at 1 30.
I don't know if you're crazy or
if this is some street theater. . .

This is easy.
I thought about it, and maybe you're
right. Maybe Krog is not a safe toy.
This whole time we were
concentrating on the babies. . .

is mentally unstable. "
Crack isn't even an intravenous drug.
Well, that makes sense since
you're gay and addicted to heroin.
That won't be necessary.
Is there anything in this record
that is actually true?
That's great. You happy? Look what
you did with your funny, funny form.
"Stop typing, stop typing! "
Only an idiot would wear this stuff
if he didn't have the car.
You can't leave me with them.
We're a team.
-I think that's gum.
-I'm pretty sure it's gun.
Maybe because you've got the keys?
Hi. How are the Gellers?
It's "Porsche-a" !
I'm sorry. I didn't mean to scare you.
I just have to clean that up.
Well, you can't answer.
Leslie? Where are you, Leslie?
Well, it'll dry.

Monica and Chandler disagree over how to redecorate Rachel's old room. Joey advertises for a "non ugly" roommate. Ross is unwilling to accept that he is still in love with Rachel.
Okay, but be careful. Rachel's not
in the same place you are.
I think we should have
a beautiful guest room. . .
I was thinking maybe. . .
maybe it could be a game room.
"What an interesting idea. Let's
discuss it before we reject it. "
Which is why Asteroids is
perfect. It's the oldest game.
I figured it'd be more interesting
to have a female roommate.
Anything I can afford comes with
a roommate who is a freak. Look.
He's got this great place he needs
to sublet. You interested?
This is great. I'm gonna
call him right now! Thank you!
You love her again. You re-love her.
I'll never find anything.
I'm just glad I could help you out.
Hero? I don't know.
Well, all right.
No. No, I won't.
Okay, that's a lie.
No, not that I think I have you. . .
Great idea. We can easily think of
a way for us both to enjoy the room.
We'll have to move some
furniture to make room for my chair.
It is not my fault your
chairs are incredibly ugly.
Will your friends be over here,
partying and hanging out?
Ignore him. He's just some
guy who wants the apartment.
Over a stupid room?
That is so silly.
Tell her to stop being silly.
. . .as you've been
since you got together.
But we also have a soft spot
for the love.
No, I'm staying put.
Monica and Chandler are
moving in again.
. . .but don't you think
it'll be weird?
It would only be weird
if we were still in "that place. "
"Come back later.
I'm getting lucky. "
It's a really big step.
And what's the rush?
You start fighting over game rooms.
Next thing you know, you break up.
-I'm not so worried.
Oh, my God!
Someone's killed Square Man!
I thought we could get one of those
signs and hang it over our bed.
How'd you wind up there?
Well, Monica and Chandler

I'm really happy for you guys.
Congratulations. See you later.
If you're gonna move in with him. . .
That's great. That's great.
If you see her, give her some really
bad news, so mine doesn't seem so bad.
It's not that big a deal.
You'll have been divorced three times.
Ross, you're being ridiculous.
You are cute and smart and sweet.
This embarrassment thing is
all in your head.
Well, I still think you're
very, very nice and very pretty.
Yes, we are.
A little my fault.
And you, wouldn't you want to date?
It's just that he's obviously
still in love with this Rachel girl.
I'll go to my lawyer's office right now
and get this marriage annulled.
Of course, you're my best friend.
I wasn't clear.
Don't you want a cookie?
. . .about our feelings and the future.
She didn't cry.
She wasn't angry or sad.
I mean, did we not have as much fun?
Don't I deserve a few tears?
I have been a divorce attorney
for 23 years. . .
. . .at the altar
in the second marriage?
I think just the annulment for today.
There's no way to do this without her?
Mon, you're not dying.
I'm just moving out.
I'm fine. I was thinking about

Where is the waitress? I'm starving.
And who was gonna be your best man?
Don't say Ross. Do not say Ross.
Tell her she's not marriage material.
He's gonna think
I don't love him anymore.
Most people who marry
in Vegas are drunk.
Now, this one's free, right?
Because you paid for the first two.
You love divorce so much,
you're probably gonna marry it. . .
I know I love you.
We should leave it
up to fate again. I love you!
Hey, we got a shooter.

-That was so unlikely.
Okay, you have 1 9 questions left.
Use them wisely.
We are switching, and
you are going to drive back.
I wanna rock 'n ' roll all night
Wow, this is so amazing.
I am not gonna be that guy.

you should grant me this favor.
Well, I told you not to walk. Here.
How could you pick up a hitchhiker?
I love the license plate game!
That's not fair. You know I can't

So I will strive to stay awake
