Storyline

Chandler hires a maid to clean the apartment and Monica promises to give her a chance. Eric broke up with Ursula and asks Phoebe out for lunch but he is still upset about Ursula and can't look at Phoebe without seeing Ursula. Rachel is looking for an apartment because she can't stay with Joey once the baby is here. Monica is very patient with the cleaning lady but thinks the girl stole her jeans and is wearing them. Monica remembers dropping ink and making a stain in the crotch of the jeans and tries to find out if they really are her jeans. Phoebe and Eric make out but then Eric accidentally has sex with Ursula thinking it's Phoebe and that's the end of Phoebe and Eric's relationship. Monica makes Chandler make a move on Brenda to see whether the jeans are stained or not. It turns out Rachel borrowed Monica's jeans but Brenda quit already. Joey doesn't want Rachel to move out so he builds a baby room in his apartment to show Rachel that it would work with all of them living there. ... Written by Anonymous
