Storyline

Emily will be leaving in 2 days and Ross is very sad but they both knew they'd only have 2 weeks together. Phoebe craves meat but won't eat it. Joshua tells Rachel he had a date and he just isn't ready to be dating so Rachel invites him over for Emily's party even though they didn't really plan a party. They invite people on short notice for their fake party. Rachel tries to figure out how she can kiss Joshua without letting him know that she likes him so they play spin the bottle. Rachel is about to kiss Joshua when Phoebe exclaims that the baby kicked so Rachel's chance is over. Rachel's seduction doesn't work out so she just tells Joshua that she likes him and it turns out that Joshua likes Rachel too. Phoebe's cravings are so bad that she eats meat after all. She feels bad for the dead animals so Joey promises not to eat any meat until the baby is born. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Rachel's attempt to twist a cherry stem with her tongue was made famous by Sherilyn Fenn from the old TV show 'Twin Peaks' (1990). She had previously appeared on Friends the year before in, "The One with Phoebe's Ex-Partner," as the Chandler's girlfriend with the wooden leg. See more »

Goofs

When Rachel is talking to Joshua near the drinks table at the party, he is holding a blue cup in his left hand and nothing in his right (this is most obvious when she's offering him a cherry). When she begins to choke, he raises his empty right hand to pat her on the back, then when she walks away there is suddenly a bottle in his raised hand. The shot changes, and his hand is again empty and he reaches down to the table and picks up the same bottle. See more »
