Episode 619- TOW Joey's Fridge
Joey is in his apartment, trying to fix his refrigerator.
He tries to convince Rachel, his roomie, that she needs to
give him $400 to pay for half of a new fridge, saying that
he has had it since he was one year old and as soon as she
moved in, it broke. Joey says he knows the ATM will only
give $300, so he will take a check for the rest. Rachel
looks at him and says, "It's good you're so pretty!" then
leaves. Joey smiles to himself.
In Central Perk, Ross tells the others that he got an
anonymous evaluation from a student that said that he was a
"hottie". The others give him grief that maybe the note
wasn't from a girl. Rachel says that she needs a date for
a formal charity function that Ralph Lauren is giving.
When asked what the charity is, she says "trees . or
disease". Monica mentions how Ralph must mumble when she
is not paying attention and Rachel agrees. Rachel says she
just needs someone who owns a tux, or has $50 to rent one,
then looks at Joey, who gives a gesture like of course
that's not him.
Ross meets the girl Elizabeth (Alexandria Holder),
obviously a freshman, who sent him the anonymous note, and
they go out on a date. In Ross's apartment, Ross reads
from the college manual that states that "professors cannot
date students" and "no hotplates". They're then drawn to
each other by the fact that their dating is "forbidden".
In Joey's apartment, Joey tries to get Chandler to pay for
half of the refrigerator. They talk for a while, then
Chandler tells Joey, "It's good you're so pretty" and
Phoebe comes to Monica and Chandler's to tell them that she
has the perfect date for Rachel. Monica and Chandler say
they also have the perfect guy from Chandler's work. They
argue about who has the better choice. Phoebe says that
she's given her guy a massage and implies that he is built.
Monica says that she thought Phoebe wasn't supposed to
look, then Chandler says "Wait a minute, you massaged me"
and Phoebe makes a face like she saw and wasn't impressed.
Chandler brags on their choice so much that Monica asks
Chandler if he wants to date him.
Ross and Elizabeth meet in his office and make out, then
she begins to mention that spring break is coming up. They
are interrupted by another professor (played by Jim
Bentley, who is the comic who warms up the audience.).
Ross covers by saying that he'll take an order of thin
mints, as she leaves. Ross then goes to Joey's apartment
and tell Chandler and Joey that he's worried that she is
going to ask him to go to spring break with her, and that
the relationship is moving too fast. Chandler says to just
talk to her about it. Ross says, yeah, but what if she
gets mad? And Chandler says, "Then you just distract her
with a Barbie doll." Then Joey pushes Ross into the fridge
and tries to get him to pay for it.
In Ross's office, Ross tells Elizabeth that he can't go
with her on spring break, and she tells him that he
misunderstood, that she was just letting him know that
she'd be gone for a couple of weeks. In Central Perk,
Rachel comes in with Sebastian, who she just met at the
newsstand while they were both reaching for the latest
issue of Field and Stream. Chandler, Monica and Phoebe
both sabotage the meeting by asking Sebastian questions
like "Does he volunteer? (Phoebe's guy does) or if he's
funny (C&M's guy is). Sebastian leaves. Ross comes in and
talks about Elizabeth leaving for spring vacation.
Chandler asks if it's spring vacation, like with
grandparents, or spring break, WOO HOO! Ross leaves to
call Elizabeth and find out. When he comes back, he says
"It's spring break, WOO HOO", and is depressed.
Ross and Elizabeth are in her apartment while she packs.
She tells Ross how glad she is that Ross is being
supportive, then Ross complains about the tiny bikini top
she is packing. She says "Is that being supportive?" Ross
hold the top up to his chest and says "Is this?"
In Central Perk, Chandler and Monica spring their choice,
Eldot(?) on Rachel, then Phoebe brings in Patrick, her
choice. Chandler, Monica and Phoebe each start extolling
the virtues of their guys, who sit on both sides of Rachel
looking extremely embarrassed, especially when Chandler
mentions how soft Eldot's hair is. Rachel gets mad at
everyone and leaves, but then comes back, feels Eldot's
hair and asks, "Do you use some special conditioner or
Ross sees Elizabeth off at the airport. She tells him not
to worry, she's only going to hang around with her friends,
then says "Oh, here they come now." A dozen big guys come
running up yelling her name, throw her on their shoulders
and run out of the room.. Ross just stands there, then says
The closing scene is in Monica and Chandler's apartment.
They and Phoebe apologize to Rachel for trying to set her
up. She says that she had a great time going to the
benefit alone. Then Joey comes in and says he just got a
message from Ross, telling them to turn on MTV. They turn
on the TV to see Elizabeth dancing with a boy at the beach.
Then Ross is seen butting the boy out of the way so he can
dance with her instead. Rachel just shakes her head and
says "Doctor Geller".
