Joey wakes up to someone pounding on his door, he gets up rubbing his eyes. He slowly walks over to the door still half asleep. He opens it up and sees Phoebe standing there, she's just staring at the floor.

"Pheebs, are you ok?"

She slowly looks up as one tear starts to fall down her cheek, then another, then another. She walks in collapsing into Joey's arms.

"Phoebe what's going on?!"

Joey slowly sinks down to the floor while he continues to hold her. He had never seen her like this before.

"What happened? You're shaking!"

Phoebe looks up at Joey,

"I...I came home...and..."

The more she tried to talk the more she broke down. Joey stands her up and walks her in and sits her down on his couch.

"Can you please tell me what happened? You've got me so worried, I've never seen you like this please talk to me!"

As she continued to shake and shiver, Joey grabs the blanket that was laying on the couch and covers her up and just holds her.

"Pheebs, can you...Pheebs?"

He looks down and sees that she fell asleep. He slides a little to the left and Phoebe lowers her head to his chest.

Joey whispers,

"Ok Phoebe, when you wake up, you're telling me what happened!"

He kisses her on her head and falls asleep.

The next morning Joey wakes up and sees that Phoebe is no longer sitting on the couch near him. He slowly sits up and glances over to his kitchen seeing Phoebe sitting there looking at something in her hands. He gets up and slowly walks over to her placing his hand on her shoulder as he goes over to the other side of the counter to sit across from her.

"Morning Pheebs...what are you looking at?!"

Phoebe looks at Joey and gives a small smirk, slamming the item on the counter.

"It's my wedding ring!"

Joey's heart sank, he picked up the ring placing it to the side, and returning his hands to grab Phoebe's.

"I tried asking you last night what happened, but you couldn't get the words out. Can you please tell me now what's going on?"

"Yeah I can tell you!"

She stands up and paces back and forth in his living room.

"Well, I had a short day at the massage parlor so I went to go to a karaoke bar with Monica and Rachel. I called Mike letting him know I was going to be home late and for him not to wait up. Sooo, once we got there I realized that I hadn't seen Mike for awhile and I knew he had some free time, and I thought that with me having a early day that we should spend some time together..."

Phoebe started to feel herself becoming emotional again so she takes a deep breath trying to calm herself down.

Joey quickly gets up and goes over to her.

"It's ok Pheebs, if you don't want to tell me it's ok, I don't want to see you get upset again!"

Phoebe walks back over to the couch and sits down.

"No it's alright Joey, I think if I say it it might help!"

Joey joins her on the couch putting his arm around her.

"So after I left the bar I drove back home and I was so happy to spend some time with my husband. I finally got home around 6 or 7...I don't even remeber. And then when I went to go walk in the door was locked, which was weird because it's only ever locked when we go to sleep. So I figured he might've been taken a nap, I go in quietly and head to the bedroom to surprise him and well, I was the one that got the..."

Joey quickly stands up in anger.


Phoebe starts to cry again and just nods her head.

Joey becomes furious and grabs his coat and his car keys.

She quickly stands up and runs to him.

"Please Joey don't!"

"No, you stay here I'll be right back, I just want to go have a talk with him...that's all!"

"Ok, I trust you...Joey wait!"

He turns around and looks at her.


"Thank You!"

He walks over to her and puts his hand on the side of her face.

"I am so sorry this happened and I PROMISE you that it will never happen again!"

He walks away and leaves, he gets to his car still infuriated with what Phoebe told him. He takes off racing as fast as he can to Phoebe's place. Once he gets there he goes to her apartment and knocks on the door. He folds his arms and waits, after a few minutes Mike opens the door.

"Oh it's you, what the hell do you want?!"

Mike leaves the door open and heads for the kitchen.

Joey laughs and lets himself in, slamming the door behind him!
