Here’s another question hanging over the Friends contract talks: Should the stars return for season 9, will there be enough plotlines left for them? Maybe they should consider these ideas.
— Chandler loses his job as we learn that the never-named corporation where he works is actually…Enron.
— Joey thinks he’s gotten his big break when he’s cast on the latest Survivor, but he’s voted off in the first episode after his stash of meatball subs is discovered.
— As part of her ongoing image-rehab program, Mariah Carey drops by Central Perk and duets with Phoebe on ”Smelly Cat.”
— After accidentally impregnating girlfriend Mona, Ross gets married for a fourth time and immediately undergoes a vasectomy.
— Phoebe’s triplets return to live with her —only now they’re just twins, and they’re played by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
— Rachel endures a serious case of postpartum depression and stops doing her hair, forcing an intervention by the gang.
— Winona Ryder returns as Rachel’s sorority sister, who calls her for bail after a ”misunderstanding” at Saks Fifth Avenue.
