Friends Season 5 DVD Set
The fifth season of the Friends TV show was aired from fall 1998 to spring 1999, continuing the long-lasting success story of America's finest TV show.
This season starts off with Ross and Emily getting married either way. Emily, though, is not happy and sneaks out after the reception. She only agrees to meet Ross again on the condition that he not see Rachel any longer. Eventually, Emily tells Ross that she cannot trust him and they end the marriage.
Phoebe gives birth to the triplets she is carrying for her brother Frank Jr. Later, after the death of her grandmother, Phoebe meets her father. She also hits it off really well with a policeman, moving in with him halfway through the season, but she ends the relationship after he shoots an innocent bird.
Meanwhile, Monica and Chandler try to keep their relationship hidden. As time goes by, first Joey, then Rachel and finally Phoebe find out about the two love birds, leaving Ross in the dark.
Ross has to move out of his old apartment and gets suspended from work for yelling at his boss. After moving into an apartment opposite from Monica and Rachel's, Ross sees Monica and Chandler kissing. A bit angry at first, he quickly sees the good in the relationship. Ross later starts working as a lecturer at NYU.
Rachel tries to get over Ross by dating Danny, a neighbor from their apartment building, which goes well until she finds out that Danny has an unusually close relationship to his sister. Rachel also gets a new job at Ralph Lauren.
Towards the end, Joey gets the lead in a movie filming in Las Vegas. He and Chandler decide to make a road trip out of it but but they have a stupid argument while still in New York, leaving Joey heading out to Nevada alone. The movie is shut down from lack of funds, though, and Joey works as a gladiator at a hotel, not telling his friends.
The entire gang flies out to surprise him. On the second evening, Monica and Chandler contemplate marriage and head to a wedding chapel -- only to see that drunk Ross and Rachel beat them there.
