    Ross has trouble understanding Joey's revelation, as does Gunther which is really funny, poor gunther. However, he (ross) comes to his senses and convinces Joey to tell Rachel how he feels. Joey takes her out to dinner and tells her, as she thinks it's a joke. She doesn't feel the same way, but they pledge to remain friends which hurts loeys feelings alot. Meanwhile, Phoebe meets Monica's soulmate and chandler gets upset and a little bit jealous over him, but monica reconciles him rebelieving that they will always be together as they got married and she doesent believe in soulmates.moreless

    I'll give this episode one thing, it did own up to it's cliffhanger. Ross reacted reasonably for being Ross that Joey had feelings for Rachel. Ross' freak outs are so hilarious, that he actually made this episode worth watching. Now for the moment we've all been waiting for (not really): Joey tells Rachel that he is in love with her, and as expected, Rachel cannot return those feelings, leaving things up in the air, but honestly, I really didn't care for those two, which is probably why I didn't enjoy season eight as much. The thing I did enjoy was Rachel's pregnancy, that was probably the only highlight of this season, probably the only successful story arc as well. Because this Joey/Rachel thing really got tiresome after a while, and I felt like they spent way too much time on the issue. The majority of fans are Ross & Rachel fans anyways, so I'm sure this wasn't good for the ratings. Ugh: A Monica/Chandler plot, Phoebe made it better with her quirkiness. Honestly, I think she is the only one that hasn't completely turned in to a caricature of herself. Average episode, not the best.moreless

    Joey tells..

    By Black_Grace, May 09, 2007

    Good episode! Joey finally tells Rachel he loves her. Ross sure freaked at the beginning when Joey told him and then Joey turned around to see Gunther behind him and he yells Rachel to. Thats so funny. Sometimes it feels like Chandler and Monica aren't really married. Monica kinda seems a bit weird sometimes by leaving her husband and going to talk to some random British dude. The end was the best. Rachel and Joey hugging for ages and then that waiter thinks one is dying and hope it is the girl because the guy is hot. That was so great!moreless

    Joey feels awkward expressing his feelings to Rachel.

    By gwactuary, Apr 01, 2006

    This episode, though improbable and unoriginal, was nicely produced.



    There's nothing new about falling in love with someone, where a friendship has progressed so far that a relationship becomes awkward. There's nothing new about an episode where the primary plot is the awkwardness of putting years of friendship at stake by attempting to act on the feelings of love.



    And there's certainly nothing new about a woman attempting to rush a man the first time he approaches her.



    He tells her at a restaurant, at a table with an improbably nosey waiter. The totality of that scene - the high moments and the absurdum alike - results in a highly memorable scene.moreless

    It\'s time for Joey to finally tell Rachel. But what\'s the outcome?

    By LiamBolton, Mar 22, 2006

    Joey confronts Ross about the situation and an annoyed but empathetic Ross encourages him to go through with it and just tell her.



    Her arranges dinner with her that evening giving himself some time to plan what he is going to say.



    This episode shows just how much care they put into every little detail of Friends, you can actually see the same extra\'s (waitor\'s) in the background of the restaurant as the last time they visited in \'The One Where Joey Dates Rachel\'. Infact, the waitor who has the most line appears in a lot of restaurent episodes.



    Joey tells Rachel which leads to tears and more tears. Rachel doesn\'t know what to do, but knows that their only friends. She comforts Joey and they hug for hours.moreless
