    This is a great episode!

    By DonnaBrockway, Jul 04, 2014

    I love the idea that six friends sit together and play poker, that is just wonderful and should be remarkable.

    Tired of being referred to by customers as "Excuse me," Rachel interviews for a job as an assistant buyer at Saks Fifth Avenue. She also sees another side of the usually docile Ross when the girls face the boys during a not-so-friendly game of poker. I love the start - so good.One of my favourite episode in season one, I love the way all of the characters are in this one, especially Ross and Rachel. I love poker, I love this episode, the way the girls and boys are in this episode - god I jsut love it. I also love everybodys sarcasm. Teh ending is legendary too.moreless

This is my second favourite episode of season one of Friends it was really funny when they play poker, it's funny because when you play poker it gets like this you get angry when you loose just like Ross,everyone was great in this episode. For those people who say season one is the worst season watch this and I garentee you will change your mind.moreless

    Poker Face.

    By Canogaparkcindy, May 17, 2009

    This was one of the best episodes in season one, it was absolutely flawless. I forgot all bout this episode at first, but it is really good. Rachel wants to be an assistant buyer but doesn't get the job. This episode by the way was also really suspenseful for me. Rachel & Ross going all in. Ross pretending like he had bad cards to let Rachel win. That was so nice of him, yet again, we see Monica get competitive, I like the running gag with the Pictionary incident. The ending credits were hilarious. Everyone ducked an covered. An amazing episode.moreless

    One of the best in the season

    By chocoholic411, Mar 01, 2008

    The One With All The Poker is one the best episodes in Seson 1, and it has some great one liners. When Rachel is tired of her boring, underpaid and under fulfilling job at Central Perk as a waitress, she decides to try out for a position at Saks 5th Avenue. However her lack of experience and her bad resume combined with a load of errors means that she can't get to the job. Then there's also the poker, the guys are plying poker and the girls decide that next time, they want to be in on the fun. The first time they do absolutley awfully, but, then Monica's Aunt Iris teaches them the tricks of the trade.moreless

    Very awkward episode.

    By Kadodian, Dec 08, 2007

    Friends was doing very well in the first season until this episode.



    Sure it was funny and with a good story line but the competition between Ross and Rachel and how serious it became was very wierd and Rachel's urge to win the game was very surprising.



    It did show show some character development but still not that good.



    The lines were funny at a certain level although not that good at others.



    The plot was moving sort of slow.



    I love friends but this episode was below expectations.



    Although the interevention of the old poker pro was a very funny thing.



    B- I am sad to give a friends episode this grade.moreless

    Poker!

    By OnePerCentClub, May 17, 2007

    Excellent episode! What an amazing demonstration of acting. I have never been a Friends true fan, but I really enjoyed watching this episode.



    This one is very special because you have the guys, with their macho attitude of not letting the girls play with them, and on the other side you have the girls trying to convince the guys to let them play, so they can fit in.

    And everything comes down to Rachel and Ross. She learns to play and finally wins. Or Ross lets her win, he´s so in love with her that all he wants is to see her smile.



    The script is superb. Every line, every answer is wownderful.
