Friends Episode 920 - The One With the Soap Opera Party
Joey doesn't tell the gang about his plans to throw a party on the roof of the building. He also hides the fact that he's invited the Days of Our Lives cast, since the girls embarrass him when they meet stars. Instead, he gives the gang tickets to a one-woman play.
Everyone finds out and comes to his party, except Chandler, who gets stuck at the play, watching a bitter woman complain about life.
Ross meets Charlie, a beautful new professor, and -- instantly attracted to her -- invites her to the party. Rachel and Monica go to the party and act like crazed fans, while Ross is intimidated by Charlie's past romantic interests, all Nobel Prize winners.
Meanwhile, Chandler is at the play alone. At the end of the party, Rachel is looking for Joey and Ross is looking for Charlie, and they find Joey and Charlie kissing.
