Rachel and Phoebe not taking Ross seriously either say that Unagi is a type of sushi and that they could go for some. Ross not being deterred decides to hide by the apartment and jumps out surprising and scaring Phoebe and Rachel proving to Ross that they haven’t learned anything yet until they master Unagi. The girls never one to sit back and take one enter Ross’s apartment and wait for him to get home scaring him enough to get him to shriek like a girl.

The episode wouldn’t be complete without Ross trying to scare the girls one more time after thinking he saw them from behind but instead tries to scare two random strangers whom attack him back and have him scurry away. Unagi!
