5x06 Smile frown

Ross' marriage ends, but Joey thinks the conversation went well.

Phoebe's mother send her an heirloom that belonged to her grandmother. She's really excited about it, but it turns out to be a fur. Phoebe wants to burn it, but Rachel thinks it's a crime against fashion. However, when Phoebe starts wears it, she discovers it really looks great and agrees with Rachel. When Phoebe walks past a couple of squirrels, however, she can't stand it anymore and gives the coat to a stranger.

Ross is selling all his furniture because Emily doesn't want to live in a house with furniture that Rachel sat on. The group thinks this is a bit extreme, but they have to keep their feelings for themselves because it makes Ross happy. When Emily also demands Ross to move to a new apartment, one from her cousin, Joey can't stand it any longer and he flips out. They explain their doubts to Ross, but he says that this marriage has to work. When Emily freaks out over the phone about Ross having dinner with Rachel, he tells her she's got to trust him or their marriage won't work. Because Emily can't trust him, the two decide to divorce.

Monica and Rachel are in the storage room to get the waffle iron, which lays under a bug bomb. When they turn to leave, a scary looking man with a wild beard comes in with a pick axe, and they fog him with the bug bomb. It turns out to be Danny, their new neighbor. When Monica and Rachel go over to apologize, he says just "okay" and closes the door, which the girls find really rude. When Rachel meets Danny later on, after he had to get his hair cut short to get rid of the fog smell, she likes him. However, he thinks Rachel is just into the looks, but they agree to eat some pizza together.



  • This is the last physical appearance of Emily in the series; she appears in "The One With The Ride Along", but only her voice is heard.
  • This is the first episode where Monica and Chandler's affair is not a part of any of the storylines.
  • The Magna Doodle says "WHY" in bold, most likely due to Joey's opinion of Chandler and Monica's secret affair.


  • At Central Perk, Joey says that Danny/Yeti is the "guy who moved in downstairs." Yet, clearly, Danny lives on the same floor as Joey/Chandler/Monica/Rachel as can be seen later when the girls go to knock on Danny's door - on their floor - to apologize about the bug bomb.
  • When Emily calls Ross at Monica's apartment, he says he's going to put Emily on speaker. However, he hangs up the handset BEFORE hitting the speakerphone button. Phones - particularly in the 90's - required you to first put someone on speakerphone by pressing the button and THEN hang up the phone.
  • When Chandler and Monica are kissing on the chair, Chandler's hand is by his side. When the camera angle changes, his hand is on Monica's leg.
  • When Joey says "Now he's moving?" the position of his left leg changes between this shot and the next shot.
  • When Ross is moving out of his apartment, the phone on the charger keeps disappearing and reappearing.
  • When Joey tells Monica and Chandler "If I have to pretend not to know about you two then you're gonna have to pretend there's nothing to know about," Joey's door is open. In the next shot it's closed, but when he walks into his room it's open again already.
