Rachel and Phoebe spot Chandler with a blonde stranger; Phoebe thinks he's having an affair. They follow the pair to a house outside the city. They tell the rest of the gang, and then confront Monica and Chandler, forcing the revelation that Monica and Chandler are trying to move to a house outside the city to raise their child. In attempts to convice Chandler and Monica to stay, their friends remind them of all the great memories they've had in their apartment in the city (shown as clips from previous episodes).

Joey's a celebrity guest on Pyramid; he does horribly until he's in the Winner's Circle, where he does very well... until the last clue. Rachel and Monica throw a bachelorette party for Phoebe, but haven't hired a stripper. When they learn that Phoebe's counting on one, they make a quick call and hire the first one that is available. He turns out to be short, fat, and old. When Phoebe doesn't like him, he cries. Ross and Chandler go to a college alumni gathering. They argue about girls from their past, prompting a series of flashbacks to 1987 and their freshman year of college, including a party where Rachel (with her old nose) and Monica (before she lost the weight) come for a visit. Several discoveries are made, including the fact that Chandler kissed Rachel, and Ross (who thought he kissed Rachel) actually kissed Monica.

Chandler and Monica go to Ohio to be interviewed by the birth mother (Erica) of their prospective child. Due to a mix-up, she thinks Chandler is a doctor and Monica a reverend. Monica wants to let the illusion continue, but Chandler insists on telling the truth, which almost costs them the baby. Joey persuades a reluctant Phoebe to set him up with her friend, Sarah. Joey is hesitant to call Sarah for a second date, because during dinner she took some fries from his plate (Joey doesn't share food). Ross seeks fashion advice from Rachel and Phoebe for an upcoming date (with Joan), so they take him shopping. Their bags get mixed up; Ross ends up wearing a women's blouse -- the same blouse Joan is wearing.

Ross is clearly freaked out by Rachel and Joey's relationship, but keeps insisting he's fine. He arranges for Rachel and Joey to have dinner with Charlie and him, where he's an emotional wreck and very drunk. Chandler and Monica, frustrated by the complexity of adoption, visit Phoebe's friends (Bill and Colleen) who have an adopted son (Owen). Chandler mistakenly reveals to the boy that he's adopted. Phoebe gets a visit from Frank Jr. and the triplets. Frank is totally overwhelmed by the responsibilities of fatherhood, having not slept in four years. He asks Phoebe to take one of the kids, but then realizes he could never give up any of them.

As the Fall Season Begins, Will 4 Remain TV's Magic Number?

As the official 2014-2015 TV season kicks off on Monday, Sept. 22, we're about to find out whether TV's unofficial "Rule of 4" will strike again.

What's the "Rule of 4"? Quite simply, in the past few decades, years that ended in "4" have turned out to be game-changing seasons in network TV. In 1984, The Cosby Show premiered and immediately revived a moribund NBC, as well as the entire sitcom genre.

By 1994, NBC was struggling once again — until Friends and ER came along and made the Peacock Network an unstoppable force for the rest of the decade. By 2004, it was ABC on the ropes, until Lost and Desperate Housewives debuted and turned that network around.

Pilot Inspector: Befriending Friends Again, 20 Years Later

On Sept. 22, 1994, Friends premiered on NBC, and haircuts, coffeehouses, lobsters, trivia games, pivoting, Thanksgiving, pickup lines and break(-up) lines were never the same again. The sitcom phenom's cultural impact endures and its popularity remains unrivaled, but could we have foreseen all that by the time Chandler (Matthew Perry) shared his Liza Minnelli dream?

In honor of the series' 20th anniversary, Joyce Eng and Sadie Gennis decided to break out the pilot and look back at the one where it all began.

VIDEO: Friends Turns 20! The One Where Gunther Looks Back and Plays Trivia

Central Perk may not be Gunther's last name, but the two unquestionably go hand-in-hand.

So naturally, that's where we found James Michael Tyler, who played the surly, deadpan, Rachel-obsessed barista with "hair brighter than the sun" on Friends for all of its 10-year run. In honor of the series' 20th anniversary on Monday, Central Perk is real and — not to mix our must Must-See TV sitcoms — spectacular. Located at 199 Lafayette Street in New York City and open through Oct. 18, the pop-up coffeehouse is a must-stop shop for all Friends fanatics. The iconic orange couch is there for photo ops, there are tons of memorabilia, props (including Pat the Dog), souvenirs and free cups of coffee (courtesy of Eight O'Clock Coffee). Gunther himself will make surprise visits.

Premise: A classic sitcom that reflected the lives of six twentysomething friends: three men and three women, living in New York. Sometimes touching and often hilarious, it addressed universal themes like falling in---or out of---love, finding a job and dealing with (as well as becoming) parents, and inspired numerous friends-themed knockoffs, none of which conveyed the warmth and humor of the original. A spin-off, `Joey,' featuring Matt LeBlanc's character, was slated to debut in the fall of 2004.
