Phoebe's husband (no one knew), a gay, Canadian ice dancer, whom she married years ago so he could get a green card, shows up. He's come for a divorce and the heartbreaking thing for Phoebe, who's always had a big crush on him and still carries a torch, is that he's realized he's not gay after all. And Ross confides to Rachel that he and Julie haven't had sex yet, so Rachel tries to prevent it from happening. Then she sees how tortured Ross is, which prompts her to tell him how she'd want it to happen if she were in Julie's shoes. Meanwhile, Phoebe's "husband' secret causes everyone else to spill a few: Joey was in a porno movie (in a non-sexual role), Chandler has a third nipple and Monica had sex with Fun Bobby on the terrace.
