In the last 4 episodes of series 9, TOWT Fertility test, TOWT Donor and TOW In Barbados 1 & 2, we get to see Monica (Courteney Cox Arquette) and Chandler(Matthew Perry) discovering they cannot have children, Phoebe(Lisa Kudrow) returning to ex-boyfriends Mike (Guest star Paul Rudd), and of course the Rachel, (Jennifer Aniston) Ross (David Schwimmer) and Joey (Matt Le Blanc) love triangle, which the Friends writers seemingly never tire of dragging out.
TOWT Ferility test, has been deemed as on of the saddest episodes of Friends to date, when married couple Monica and Chandler are informed they can't have children, in this scene all jokes are put aside as these two actors/actresses deliver a performance worthy of more than a sitcom.
TOWT Donor, here the Bings look into sperm donors, with hilarious results. Rachel tries to overcome her newly found feelings for Joey, Phoebe is back with David (Hank Azaria) aka 'The Scientist Guy' but still getting over Mike.
TOW In Barbados 1 & 2 - The whole gang set off to Barbados to listen to Ross speak in a Paelintology conference, joined by David, and Joey's current girlfriend Charlie (Aisha Tyler), who Ross is also attracted to. With the constant rain, trapping them all inside the hotel it's all systems go.
The second episode shows Rachel and Joey coming ever closer to the enivitable. Monica, Chandler, Phoebe and Mike are in the game room as Monica and Mike (Who turns out to be equally as competitive) have a long game of ping-pong, in a typical Friends way of 'What shall we do with the others', so whilst these 4 our battling it out, the real storyline is happening above.
It's all in all, Classic Friends.
