Friends Episode 220 - The One Where Old Yeller Dies
Phoebe's world view is shattered when she discovers that her mother used to shield her from the sad parts of movies, like Old Yeller. She rents all the movies her mother used to show her, and gets rather depressed and pessimistic.
Meanwhile, Ross is bothered that he's missing significant steps in Ben's development and takes his son for a weekend. Ben says his first words. Rachel becomes upset when she learns that Ross has planned their whole life together.
At Monica's request, Chandler and Joey start spending time hanging out with Richard. Then they try to be more like Richard: Joey smokes cigars and Chandler grows a mustache. Richard starts to talk and dress like Chandler. They end up spending too much time together, until Richard discovers they view him as a father figure, rather than one of the guys.
