"The One With Ross' Inappropriate Song" is the seventh episode of the ninth season of Friends, which aired on November 14, 2002.

PlotEdit

Joey earned too much money to keep hiding it, so Monica suggests investing in real estate, such as Richard's apartment for sale; Chandler accompanies him, and they find a videotape marked 'Monica.' After watching the tape, Monica tells Chandler that it isn't her (saying that the tape showed 'her' wearing cowboy boots, but says she has never wore them in her life.)

Phoebe has her first dinner with boyfriend Mike's classy parents, Theodore and Bitzy Hannigan, and some boring acquaintances, but despite a chance to seem classy and 'normal', she disappoints his parents. But Mike sides with her and saying that they are too boring and their guests, and even calls her 'the woman he loves.'

Ross is the first to make baby Emma laugh, but Rachel is disgusted to learn that he made her laugh by rapping 'Baby's Got Back' by Sir Mix-A-Lot; but learns that it is the only way to make her laugh. Near the end of the episode, the others catch them both rapping to Emma and dancing provocatively.

TriviaEdit

GeneralEdit

  • This episode's subplot with Chandler, Joey, and Monica is strikingly similar to an episode of the British Sitcom, Coupling, which aired two years prior. The episode in question, "The Cupboard of Patrick's Love," features the main character Steve obsessing about a sex tape his girlfriend Susan made with her ex, Patrick. Similarly, whilst watching it at Patrick's flat, Steve and company fail to notice that it had been taped over with another sex tape until Susan bursts in and points it out to them.

GoofsEdit

  • When Joey and Chandler are watching Richard and Monica's sex tape, when Chandler exclaims, "It's just football!" the mat on which Joey will tackle Chandler is clearly visible near the door to the apartment. After Monica walks in, Joey pulls her down on the floor and you can see a knee-pad strapped to her leg.
  • In this episode, Monica says that Chandler is jealous of Richard because Richard has a mustache and Chandler can't grow one. This is incorrect because Chandler had a goatee earlier in the series.
  • When Chandler and Joey are about to watch the tape, the bedroom door is closed, but in the next shot it's open.
  • When Chandler goes to get beers to watch the tape, which has turned out to be a football game, the TV is actually off in the next shot, but sound is still emitting from it. 

QuotesEdit

Ross: [to Emma] And that's why, no matter what mommy says, we really were on a break.

[in Richard's apartment]
Chandler: Oh, my god. There's a tape here with Monica's name on it!
Joey: Ooh, a tape with a girl's name on it. It's probably a sex tape. [pause] Wait a minute. This says "Monica". And this is Richard's apartment. [Joey looks thoughtful]
Chandler: Get there faster!
[Joey gasps and points at the tape repeatedly]

[Joey and Chandler are looking at the apartment that Richard is selling]
Catherine: All the appliances are included. There is a lot of light, a new kitchen... I think you guys would be very happy here.
[Joey and Chandler laugh]
Chandler: No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. We're not together. We're not a couple. We're definitely not a couple.
Catherine: Oh. Okay. Sorry.
Joey: Well... you seem pretty insulted by that. What? I'm not good enough for you?
Chandler: We're not gonna' have this conversation again.

Rachel: Take it from me. Mothers love me. Ross' mom actually said that I'm like the daughter that she never had.
Monica Geller: She said WHAT?
Phoebe Buffay: That she's like the daughter that she never had. Listen.
[Monica looks at Phoebe angrily]

Phoebe: Hi.
Monica and Rachel: Hey!
Phoebe: Listen, you have to help me pick a dress 'cause I'm meeting Mike's parents tonight!
Monica: Wow, the boyfriend's parents, that's a big step.
Phoebe: Really? That hadn't occured to me.
Monica: Sweetie, they're gonna love you. Just be yourself.
Phoebe: They live on the upper East side on Park Avenue!
Rachel: Oh, yeah, she can't be herself...
Phoebe: Alright, so, which dress?
[shows them two dresses]
Phoebe: [long pause] You can say neither...
Monica, Rachel: Oh God, neither!
Monica: I'm sorry honey, we're gonna take you shopping, it's gonna be fine.
Rachel: Yeah, totally, you are in such good hands and I am so good with meeting parents. With the father, you know, you wanna flirt a little bit but not in a gross way, just kind of like "Oh, Mr Pinser, I can see where Wallace gets his good looks from."
Monica: You went out with Wallace Pinser?
Rachel: Ah, he took the SATs for me.
Monica: I knew you didn't get a 1400!
Rachel: [scoffs] Well, duh!

(Rachel has just gotten Emma to laugh by rapping "Baby Got Back")

Rachel:  Oh, Emma.  You really do like big butts.  Oh, you beautiful little weirdo.

Ross: I sang, actually I rapped, "Baby Got Back"?
Rachel: You what? So you sang, to our baby daughter, a song about a guy who likes to have sex with women with giant asses?!
