"The One In Barbados: Part 2" is the twenty-fourth episode of season nine of friends.
To the other friends' fury, it keeps raining except during Ross' speech, which to their amazement is a big hit with the paleontologists. Charlie, on the other hand, is less than amused with Joey, who along with Rachel keeps laughing at double-sense terms such as "homo erectus." Ross, widely popular with his colleagues, is even hit on by a male paleontologist (who has a wife, indicating he is bisexual).
Charlie and Joey talk, and they realize that not having fun with each other is pretty weird and that maybe it's the time for them to talk about their relationship. The two break up.
Chandler and Phoebe know better, but Mike accepts to play table tennis against Monica. Her obsessive competitiveness gets the best of her when she injures her hand against the table. Chandler jumps in and crushes Mike, revealing at last that he's an excellent table tennis player, and that he hid this from Monica to prevent her from entering the two of them in double tournaments.
Rachel can't hide her feelings for Joey anymore, so she decides to tell him. Joey can't believe that she's been hiding this from him all this time, but the two decide not to act upon it until they tell Ross about it.
To break away from the bisexual paleontologist with a crush on him and from the group of scientists who want to throw him in the pool, Ross and Charlie sneak behind a plant in the lobby. Charlie admits to Ross how she really feels about him, but Ross wants to talk to Joey about this, as Charlie has just broken up with him. But a couple of seconds later, he regrets this decision and kisses Charlie, which Joey sees. He walks with determination to Rachel's room and knocks. Rachel opens and Joey kisses her. She kisses him back.

- When Charlie admits to Ross how she really feels about him behind a small tree in the lobby it is raining very heavily but in a different shot it is not raining.
- At the last point Mike gains against Monica, he touches to the table with his left hand even though he mentioned that a ping-pong player should not contact the table with his/her empty hand.
- During Ross's speech, when Rachel laughs about "homo", her right hand is under her left elbow, but when Joey asks her why she's laughing, her right hand is suddenly up, with no time to do so.
