Everyone is at Joey's new apartment except for Chandler, who apparently is still taking the moving-out hard. He and Joey have a good telephone conversation over the phone that same night, and the oven timer at Chandler's rings off, signaling the start of Baywatch, which the two watch and comment upon over the phone. Joey, however, finds living alone solitary and slightly depressing, and talks to Monica and Phoebe how he might want to move back with Chandler. Ross and Rachel, on the other hand, convince Chandler that there's no way Joey wants to move back in.
Phoebe is discovered by a record producer, who wants to make a music video with Smelly Cat. Phoebe promptly agrees to this, and records the song and the video. When she sees the ends result, everyone is surprised to hear another woman singing in Phoebe's place (Phoebe still appears in the video). Phoebe, however, thinks it's herself. Eventually she discovers that the agreement she signed upon gives her consent to overdub her voice with another's, and Phoebe ends up feeling badly for the singer (who is less attractive than her), comparing her with "Smelly Cat".
Now that he's dating Rachel, Ross is spending a lot more of his free time at her apartment. As a result, he and Monica soon begin to descend into the kind of petty arguments they had when they were kids. As the two squabble over what to watch on TV, Monica admits she hated Ross when she was growing up. Ross feels hurt, and Monica makes up with him by assuring him she loves him now (and not just because she has to).
When Joey visits Chandler to talk about their living situation, he meets Eddie, Chandler's new roommate. Eddie seems to click pretty well with Chandler, convincing him to move the mail around and to prefer eggs "à la Eddie" to eggs "à la Joey". When Joey confronts Chandler about this, Chandler tries to show some closure, and that by moving out, Joey couldn't expect Chandler not to find "new eggs". Time gives an answer to Chandler, however, as Eddie lacks the features which made he and Joey great friends, as Eddie likes neither foosball nor Baywatch. Joey also quickly finds that living alone isn't as great as he thought it would be, and the episode ends with Chandler and Joey staring in the rain - and in Joey's case, in the electric raindrop glass - as the two begin to realize how much they miss living together.
