Plot

TOWRoss'LibraryBook-Erin

Erin is still around much to Joey's dismay.

Monica runs into Janice and Janice is shocked to hear that she is getting married to Chandler but invites herself and her boyfriend to the wedding. Ross' doctoral dissertation can be found at the library but when he goes to see it he finds out that the Paleontology section of the library is only used by students to make out or fool around; therefore Ross decides to defend the area. Rachel and Phoebe find the perfect girl for Joey and he is really into her but she doesn't feel the same way. Chandler and Monica finally get rid of Janice when Monica comes up with the idea of telling Janice that Chandler still has feelings for her, and make her think that her being around will come between Monica and Chandler.

Trivia

  • In this episode Jennifer Aniston cuts her hair. It remains short until The One Where Rachel Tells... in which her hair returns to mid-length. From there on it continues to grow until it reaches its original length.
  • Chandler's hair is cut too. The next 2 episodes, Chandler's hair is the same like its been since The One With Monica's Thunder. 3 episodes later, it's back to being cut again. Apparently, the next 2 episodes were shot before this one. The holiday episode was shot one episode after this one.
  • When Joey sees Janice in the doorway of Monica and Chandler's apartment he is seen prominently running away before she sees him. This is probably due to the fact that in The One With Chandler's Work Laugh, as Janice is breaking up with Ross she tells Joey that's two out of three and then flirts with him, hinting she'll go out with him next, to Joey's horror as he hates Janice.
  • Chandler told Janice that he'd have to be in Yemen until they found an energy source to replace gasoline. In "Chandler's Work Laugh", she believed that he was still in Yemen, so it's odd that she didn't comment on that in this episode (Although Monica may have provided some kind of explanation for his return when she told Janice about the wedding).
  • This is the seventh episode of Friends' seventh season. The actress who played Erin, Kristin Davis, would go on to also guest star on the seventh episode of the seventh season of the sitcom Will and Grace as Nadine, the best friend of one of the main characters' boyfriends.
