Joey's new apartment. Everyone but Chandler is there. Joey has decorated the place with tons of tacky stuff. JoeyHuh? So what do you think? Casa de Joey. Huh? I decorated it myself.
RossGet out.
Monica(looking at some kind of glass sculpture thing) Wow Joey, this is, uhh...
MonicaArt it is.
Ross(looking at a glass table with a panther shaped base) Look, check this out. Is it a coffee table, is it a panther? There's no need to decide.
Rachel(holding a pillow made out of 4 inch red fur) Hey, nice pillow. So now tell me, is this genuine Muppet skin?
Phoebe(looking at a water sculpture that looks like a window with rain running down it) Hey, excellent, excellent water-table thing.
JoeyThanks, yeah. I love this but you know what, it makes me wanna pee.
PhoebeYeah, well me too, yeah. I think that's the challenge.
JoeyHey, how come, uhh, Chandler didn't come?
RossWell uh, it's 'cause he had a thing with, with the thing.
JoeyRight, I got, I got it.
PhoebeSo why don't you show us the rest of your casa?
JoeyYeah. Uh, oh, OH, the best part, come on. (leads them to the bathroom, gestures towards toilet, everyone stares, uncomprehending) Heh?
RachelHey, nice toilet.
JoeyNo no no, behind it.
RossWhat, you have a phone in here?
JoeyThat's right, I have a phone in here.
MonicaJoey, promise me something.
MonicaNever call me from that phone. Central Perk. Monica, Chandler, and Ross are seated. Rachel is walking over with coffee and a piece of pie. (Rachel bumps into someone and she drops the pie in a guy's hood that's seated at the table. She improvises by using the plate as a saucer for the coffee.)
Rachel(to Monica) OK, here we go. Honey, I'm sorry, they were all out of apple pie, someone just got the last piece.
(Phoebe enters)
PhoebeOh my God, oh my God, oh my God, oh my God. You are not gonna believe this. I have just been discovered.
ChandlerNow wait a minute, I claimed you in the name of France four years ago.
Phoebe(Laughs) Anyway, OK, now promise you won't like, freak out and say how great this is until I'm done, OK?
PhoebeOK. I just met this producer of this like, teeny record company, who said that I have a very fresh, offbeat sound and she wants to do a demo of Smelly Cat.
All(Congratulating her and celebrating)
PhoebeI told you not to do that yet. Ok. And, she wants to do a video.
All(Celebrating more)
PhoebeI'm not done yet, OK. God. OK, if that goes well, they may even want to make an album.
(Everyone is quiet, unsure if she's done or not)
PhoebeI'm done now.
(The guy with the pie in his hood get up to leave)
RachelOh God. Ross, OK, if you care about me at all, you will get the pie out of the man's hood.
RossGet the what?
RachelPie in the hood, pie in the hood. Go.
(Ross goes over behind the guy and grabs the pie out of his hood as he leaves)
GuyWhat're you doing?
RossI'm sorry, my pie was, was in your hood. Now I just have to get the coffee out of that guy's pants and I'll be back in the hospital by 7. (swats at an imaginary insect by his head, guy leaves promptly) Monica and Rachel's apartment. Monica is outside the bathroom yelling at Ross who's in the bathroom. MonicaDamn it Ross, get your butt out of the bathroom.
RossCalm down, I'm blow drying.
(Rachel enters with laundry and starts folding)
MonicaBlow drying what, you have no hair.
RachelWhat's going on?
MonicaYour boyfriend has been in there for over an hour. I can't believe it, it's like I'm living with him again. He's here when I go to sleep, he's here when I wake up, he's here when I want to use the shower, ughh. It's like I'm sixteen all over again.
RachelWell, you're not sixteen, you're both adults now.
RachelOr you know, he's rubber and you're glue.
Ross(comes out) All yours.
MonicaI hope you cleaned your hair out of the drain.
Ross(In a childish voice) I hope you cleaned your hair out of the drain.
MonicaShut up.
Ross(Childish voice) Shut up.
MonicaCut it out.
Ross(Childish voice) Mi-mi-mii.
(Monica goes in the bathroom)
Rachel(sarcastically) I've never wanted you more. (walks off)
Ross(Childish voice) Mi-mi-mi-mii. Joey's Apartment. Joey is walking around looking at his place. (He walks over to the white dog and tries to see what the dog is looking up at, but doesn't see anything. He walks over to the intercom and presses the Call button.)
Guy on IntercomHello.

LouieHe went home.
JoeyOh. He said he might stop up after his shift.
LouieHe said to tell you he weren't feel so good.
JoeyOh. Hey what time do you get off?
LouieI'm not feeling too good either. Chandler's apartment. Chandler is sitting on the bar wearing huge dog-slippers ChandlerSo, what do you say boys, should I call him? (squeezes the ear of one of the slippers and it barks) Well, you know what they say. Ask your slippers a question... you're going crazy.
(Back to Joey's apartment. Joey is trying to rearrange two of his art sculptures. As the phone rings, Joey runs over to get it but runs into one of the sculptures.)
JoeyFreaking art! (answers) Hello.
ChandlerListen, I'm, I'm sorry I didn't make it over there today.

ChandlerThat's right my friend. It's time for...
BothBaywatch!! (both turn on TVs)
JoeyOh, can you believe they gave Stephanie skin cancer?
ChandlerI still can't believe they promoted her to lieutenant.
JoeyNah, you're just saying that 'cause you're in love with Yasmine Bleeth.
ChandlerWell, how could anyone not be in love with Yasmine Bleeth?
JoeyHey, hey, they're running.
ChandlerSee, this is the brilliance of the show. I say always keep them running. All the time, running. Run. Run. Run Yasmine, run like the wind. Central Perk. Joey is sitting between Monica and Phoebe. MonicaBut I thought you wanted to live by yourself.
JoeyI did. I thought it'd be great. I figured I'd have like, time alone with my thoughts but, you know, turns out I don't have as many thoughts as you'd think.
PhoebeJoey, why don't you talk to Chandler about moving back?
JoeyYou really think he'd take me? I mean, we had a pretty good talk last night but, when I moved out, I hurt him bad.
MonicaI promise you, he would definitely want you back. Chandler's apartment. Chandler is sitting between Rachel and Ross. RossI'm telling you, there's no way he's moving back.
ChandlerBut we had one of the greatest talks we ever had last night. I mean it was, it was like when we first started living together.
RossLook, I know you don't wanna hear this right now but, we've seen him in his new place, all right? And he's happy, he's, he's decorated.
RachelLook, Chandler, he has moved on, OK, you have to too.
RossNo. You're just gonna have to accept the fact that you're just friends now, OK, you're not... roommates anymore. Recording studio. Phoebe is getting ready to record Smelly Cat. ProducerHey Phoebe, ready to try one? 
PhoebeOK. (Singing) Smelly cat, smell-ly cat, what are they feeding you? Smelly cat (back up singers start singing smelly, smelly, smelly, smelly bad smelly smelly cat behind her) Oh woah, oh my God. I mean like, who was that?

I'm just, I'm just not getting that everyone um, gets how smelly this cat actually is. I just think that maybe if we could talk about this, 'cause I-I need to feel that you really care about the cat.
ProducerHoney, uh we, we can talk about this. It's just that it's costing about a hundred dollars a minute to be in here.
PhoebeOh OK. So, um, the cat stinks but you love it, let's go. Monica and Rachel's apartment. Ross is on the phone. RossNo, there is no way he was a velociraptor. No Tony, look at the cranial ridge, OK. If Dino was a velociraptor, he would've eaten the Flintstones. Yeah, yeah. (Monica comes out of her room) Oh, were you taking a nap?
MonicaI was.
RossOh I-, Oh wait, Tony can you hold on? That's the other line. (gets the other line) Hello. Oh yeah she's here but uh, can she call you back? OK, thanks. (hangs up the other line) (to Monica) Call Joanna. (back on with Tony) Hi.

MonicaHi sweetie, look before I forget, did I leave my diaphragm at your place? Hi mom. (she starts throwing oranges at Ross who's looking pleased with himself) Chandler's apartment. Chandler is sitting on the bar, bouncing a ball against the door. Joey walks in right as he throws the ball and catches it. JoeyHey.
ChandlerSo uhh, how's the palace?

ChandlerOh, uhh, actually I uh, have some news.
EddieHey Chan, is that Joey guy gonna come by and pick up his moose hat or should I just toss it out?
ChandlerWell, uh, why don't you ask him yourself. Joey, this is my new roommate Eddie.
EddieNice to meet you.
JoeyLikewise. Uh, I'll take that. (grabs moose hat) It's what I came for. So, this is new. Where'd you two meet?
EddieAt the uh, supermarket, in the uh, ethnic food section. I helped him pick out a chorizo.

RossUh, Eddie something. He just met him.
RachelIt'll never last; he's just a rebound roommate.
(Phoebe enters)
PhoebeOh, check it out, oh check it out. It's Smelly Cat the video.
PhoebeNow OK, I haven't seen it yet, so, if you don't like it, well, so what, none of you ever made a video. (Puts the tape in) OK.
(The video begins.)
Lady in videoGet out of here cat you stink! (throws the cat onto the street)
(Phoebe appears in the video.)
PhoebeOoh look at me!
(Phoebe starts singing in the video and her voice is obviously dubbed. Everyone is in disbelief.)
PhoebeOh my God.
RossI know.
PhoebeI sound amazing.
(Cut back to the video)
PhoebeI, I, I've never heard myself sing before. I mean, except in my own head. Oh, this is so cool, now I can hear what you hear.
RachelPretty uhm, pretty different, huh?
PhoebeOh, I am sorry but I am incredibly talented!
(Cut to the video) Chandler and Eddie's apartment. Joey is going to open the door but remembers he doesn't live there anymore and decides to knock. Eddie lets him in.. Chandler is reading the paper and Eddie is fixing eggs. EddieHi Joey, what's going on man?
JoeyMorning. I just uh, came by to pick up my mail. (looks for the mail on the table by the door, it's not there) Where's the mail?
ChandlerOh it's uh, over there on the table.
JoeyYou don't keep it over here on this table anymore?
ChandlerNo, Eddie likes to keep it over there.
EddieAll right, here you go my friend. Eggs à la Eddie, huh?
Chandler(takes a bite) Wo-wo. Oh, ooh, that's great.
JoeyNo I just uh, thought you liked your eggs with the bread with the hole in the middle, à la me.
ChandlerWell I do, but uh, Eddie makes them this way and, well they're pretty darn good.
Eddie(to Joey) Wanna try some man? There's extra.
JoeyNo thanks. (gives Eddie an angry look.)
EddieWell you guys, I'm outta here. See ya pals.
ChandlerSee ya. (Eddie leaves)
JoeySo how're you two getting along?
ChandlerOh, I couldn't be happier.
JoeyGreat, well, I'm happy for ya. (picks up the orange juice carton and it's empty) All right that's it. He just comes in here, Mr. Johnny Neweggs, with his, his, his moving the mail and his, his 'see ya pals'. And now there's no juice. There's no juice for the people who need the juice, want the juice. I need the juice.
ChandlerThere's another carton right over there.
JoeyHey, this isn't about juice anymore, all right man?
ChandlerAll right, so what's it about?
JoeyEggs. Who's eggs do you like better, his or mine, huh?
ChandlerWell I like both eggs equally.
JoeyOh come on. Nobody likes two different kinds of eggs equally. You like one better than the other and I wanna know which.
ChandlerWell what's the difference? Your eggs aren't here anymore, are they? You took your eggs and you left. You really expect me to never find new eggs?
JoeyWell maybe this isn't about the eggs. Maybe this is about the chicken that laid 'em! Hmm?
ChandlerWhat chicken? There's no chicken!
Joey(Whining angrily) I can't talk to you! (leaves as Chandler remains speechless.) Monica and Rachel's apartment. Ross and Monica are fighting over the remote. MonicaI wanna watch Entertainment Tonight.
RossTough noogies, we're watching Predators of the Serengeti. (changes channel)
RachelWould you guys stop?
MonicaIt's my TV. (changes the channel)
RossWha-, oh, quit it.
MonicaBite me.
RachelOh my God.
RossWell, Monica keeps changing the channel.
MonicaOh, that's great, why don't you tell mommy on me?
RachelNow I'm mommy in this little play? All right look, I refuse to get sucked into this like, weird little Geller dimension thing OK? So I'm gonna go and take a nice long hot bubble bath because you kids are driving me crazy. (goes in the bathroom)
MonicaOK, what're we gonna do about this?
RossWell, I guess we could tape Entertainment Tonight.
MonicaNot that, this, us. Oh my God, Ross, you're, you're, it's jus-, you-, ever sin- you been here.
RossOw, ow, OK. All right, all right, Mon, Mon, you've gone ultrasonic again, all right?
MonicaI just can't stand you being here all the time.
RossWhy, why, why can't you stand me being here? I don't, I, we're just, you know, we're just having fun.
MonicaFun? Fun, you think this is fun?
RossYeah, come on, I mean I though, you know, I thought we're just fooling around. Like when, uh, when we were kids.
MonicaRoss, I hated you when we were kids.
RossYou hated me when we were kids?
MonicaYes. I hated you. I mean I, I, loved you in a 'you're my brother so I have to' kinda way, but basically, yeah, I hated your guts.
RossWhy did you hate me?
MonicaBecause, you were mean to me and you, you teased me and you always, always got your way.
RossAnd that wasn't fun for you?
RossI can't believe you hated me.
MonicaNow I love you. And not just 'cause I have to.
MonicaYeah. You're just gonna have to stop pissing me off.
RossI can do that.
MonicaThen I won't have to kill you.
RossSo you wanna watch uh, Entertainment Tonight?
MonicaYeah, thanks. (Pause) You know what?
MonicaIf you really wanna watch that Serengeti thing, we can.
RossOhh... OK. (changes the channel) Central Perk. Ross, Rachel, and Monica are hanging out. (Phoebe enters)
PhoebeListen. You are not going to believe this, but, that is not me singing on the video.
RachelWell, how did you find out?
PhoebeWell, OK, the record company sent over this piece of paper for me to sign, saying that it's OK for someone else to sing for me. That was my first clue.
MonicaSo what're you gonna do?
PhoebeWell, I can't work with people who would do this.
PhoebeI mean this poor woman.
RossWh-what woman?
PhoebeThe voice woman. You know, I mean, she has a great voice but she doesn't have a video.
RachelOK, Pheebs. But what about you?
PhoebeWell I have a video, you have to pay attention. No this, this voice woman, she's so talented but, according to the producer people, they said she doesn't have like the right look or something, you know. I mean, it's like, she's like one of those animals at the pound who like nobody wants 'cause they're not pretty enough or you know. Like, like some old dog who's just kind of like stinky and. Ohh, oh my God, she's smelly cat. Oh, oh that song has so many levels. Chandler and Eddie's apartment. ChandlerHey Eddie, you uh, wanna play some foosball?
EddieNo thanks man, I'm not uh, I'm not really into sports.
Chandler(Stares in disbelief) Yeah o-, OK, all right. (Oven timer goes off) Doesn't matter, time for Baywatch.
EddieWhat, you, you like that show?
ChandlerYou don't like that show?
EddieWha-, no. I mean it's just a bunch of pretty people running around on the beach, you know.
ChandlerWell that's the brilliance of it. The pretty people... and the running.
EddieI tell you, you know, I'm-I'm gonna go read in my room for the while.
ChandlerOh o-, OK man.
(Joey's place. He's watching Baywatch, laughing. He goes to say something to Chandler in the other chair but no one's there. He goes to call Chandler but decides not to.)
(Chandler's. He's playing foosball by himself.)
(Joey's. Playing ping pong by himself.)
(All by myself is playing. Chandler is sitting in front of a window while it's raining outside. We see Joey through a rainy window. The camera zooms out to show it's just his tabletop water sculpture.)
{Living alone, I think of all the friends I've known, But when I dial the telephone, Nobody's home, All by myself, Don't want to be, all by myself anymore, All by myself, Don't want to live, all by myself anymore [lyrics]} Central Perk. Phoebe is preparing to sing. PhoebeUmm, I'm gonna start off with a little song called Smelly Cat. Yay. Oh, for those of you who are wondering this is my real voice. (singing) Smelly cat, smell-ly cat, what are they feeding you? Everybody.
AllSmelly cat, smell-ly cat, it's not your fault.
Monica(Sings) They won't take you to the vet.
Chandler(Reluctantly sings) You're obviously not their favorite pet.
Joey(sings) It may not be a bed of roses.
Rachel(sings) And you're no friend to those with noses.
PhoebeUh, Ross, those are the only lines we have, sorry. Ok, back to the chorus everybody!
AllSmelly cat, smell-ly cat, what are they feeding you? Smelly cat smell-ly cat, it's not your fault.
Joey and Chandler(Ridiculously) Smelly cat, smell-ly cat, what are they feeding you?
Joey and Chandler(Ridiculously) Smelly cat, smell-ly cat, it's not your fault!
(Rachel shakes her head like a rock star as Phoebe finishes playing the song.)
