5x17 Joey WarningPhoebe talks with Monica about the good time she and Gary are having, which primarily consists of sex. Phoebe finds it hard to believe that she and Chandler are still all over each other sexually, which she voices out loud to Monica. This spurs in Monica the urge to beat Phoebe at "who's-having-sex-more-than-who", taking every chance to have sex with Chandler. Although he gladly helps her at first, he grows tired of all the competitiveness and admits to Monica how he's more excited about the relationship, which is by far the longest one he's ever been in, and that he's crazy about Monica. 


Rachel has an interview for a job at Ralph Lauren. Although the interview goes well, she screws it up at the end, when her interviewer, Mr. Zelner, opens the door for her, leaning in a little in the process, and she kisses him on the cheek. Thinking that she's screwed up her chance, Rachel is bewildered to discover that Mr. Zelner has called her for a second interview. However, she enters Mr. Zelner's office with ink on her lip. When Mr. Zelner gesticulates his lip to try and alert her, she interprets this as a gesture for her to kiss him and stands him up, screwing the interview before it even starts. Eventually, Mr. Zelner calls her again for a third interview, which he warns her is being video-taped. Rachel tries to explain her actions, and Mr. Zelner decides to hire her. Things go in the wrong direction once again when Rachel tries to give him a handshake but ends up grabbing his crotch. 


When Joey gets tired of watching Ross from his apartment, he sees a hot girl and flirts with her using gestures. She waves him over to her place, but Joey always runs into Ross every time he tries to go at her place. Desperate for her, Joey starts shouting "Hot girl!" in the hallways in the hope of meeting her, but instead ends up on the noticeboard as a pervert looking for girls. Ross meets the hot girl, Jen, at the noticeboard, where he asks her out. Back at Monica's, Joey is about to give up on the girl, but Monica helps him point out the correct apartment (Joey failed to take into account that the ground floor is Floor 1 and that the window on the edge of the building was for the stairs, so he was one floor and apartment short). When he manages to find the correct door, Ross (about to go out with Jen) answers, freaking Joey out.
