Eventually, Joey takes Chandler's at Monica's request, and Rachel keeps the luxurious La-Z-Boy for herself (making Joey jealous). Meanwhile, Monica and Ross visit their childhood house, finding out their parents are selling it. However, an incident with the Porsche and a flood leads to Monica's childhood boxes being ruined while Ross's stay dry.
