Chandler points out to Joey how he finds certain habits of his disgusting, such as licking spoons and placing them in the drawer. The two argue about whose habits are disgusting, but put the fight on pause to visit a colleague of Joey's for brunch. Joey finds his colleague's apartment amazing, and is slightly surprised when he's offered the place. Monica and Ross are celebrating their father's birthday, to which Richard is invited too. At the party, however, there's only one subject going on - the "twinkie from the City" Richard has managed to hook up with. The women judge her as being dumb and young enough to have "everything pointing up". Richard is a hero with his guys for managing to end up with a young hot girl. No one's aware that Monica is the twinkie.
Monica and Richard meet in the bathroom, where they decide to tell everyone everything. Richard goes out first, but Monica doesn't leave in time and is stuck in the bathroom with her mother and father, who don't know she's there. Judy and Jack discuss Richard and the twinkie. Jack admits to Judy how Richard's very happy with his new girl, and how he's thinking he's falling in love with her. Not much later, Jack is feeling up Judy and Monica has to bear the whole scene. Later, Monica tells her parents about Richard while also revealing they were in the bathroom when Jack and Judy got passionate. Neither go down very well, however both are forced to grin and bear it when everyone brings Jack the birthday cake.
With some help from Phoebe, Rachel decides to get herself a tattoo. She keeps this from Ross as he's against them. At the tattoo place, Rachel keeps having second thoughts about it, but Phoebe talks her into it. Ironically, Phoebe lacks all of this courage and doesn't get hers, whilst Rachel has a heart drawn on her left hip. Unfortunately, Ross finds out about the tattoo. Fortunately, he likes it.
Back at their apartment, Chandler takes it on Joey for considering the other guy's apartment. Joey, however, is giving it some serious thought, and states how he thinks he's old enough to start living alone. Chandler thinks it's just small talk, and buys Joey a bag of plastic spoons. But when Joey says how he finds them great to use until he gets real spoons for his new place, Chandler brings up the fight again. Joey explains how his though of buying the new place isn't just small talk. The two have an argument over who should keep the foosball table, and they play for it. Joey wins; Chandler leaves the apartment with a disappointed "congratulations".
Eventually, Chandler accepts that Joey's really moving out. Joey leaves the foosball table to Chandler. The guys help Joey with his stuff on his way out. Joey comes back because he forgot something - a meaningful hug with Chandler. Joey has to leave, and Chandler makes his way to his room. Apart from the missing new furniture, the place looks exactly like before, but something feels broken and gloomy about it.
