    History repeats itself.

    It seems like Rachel has a twin! Well specifically just a sister. But really, history does repeat itself. Rich spoiled girl, comes to live on her own, and then goes on a date with Ross. Sound familiar? I'm glad they used Reese Witherspoon as Rachel's sister, It just fit. I also like the cliffhanger. Ross closed the blinds. And Rachel is not happy. The Joey at Central Perk arc continues, and he still sucks at it which gives the episode comic relief. Monica is one strange nut, begging to have sex when she is sick is just crazy. Funny though. Great episode with great cliffhanger.moreless

    Joey gets in trouble for giving female customers free food at Central Perk. A sick Monica desperately tries to convince Chandler that she's not sick. After her father cuts her off, Rachel's sister Jill comes to town.

    Good episode! Jill seems to be like Rachel when she was younger and just moved in with Monica and needed money. I think Rachel was a little jealous because Jill and Ross are going out and went to his apartment and she watched until they shut the certains. Monica said she hasn't been sick on 3 years but she was in season 4! What the hell?! I don't get the big deal because everyone gets sick. Joey is so funny giving people free food and faking that it is their birthday. Phoebe sits between Ross and Jill which they didn't like and then thought their was a spark but wasn't until Rachel talked about it.moreless

    Definitely funny, but not the best

    By aspettig, Feb 01, 2007

    I like this episode, but it's weak when compared to other episodes of "Friends". Reese Witherspoon guest stars as Rachel's spoiled sister, Jill, who comes to Rachel for help after being "cut off" from her father's money. Rachel tells Jill to get a job and an apartment so that she can learn the value of money. Jill, however, (akin to Rachel in the first season) goes shopping with her dad's credit card and buys new clothes. When Rachel confronts her, Ross covers for Jill and they begin to flirt, which eventually leads to Ross and Jill going out on a date, much to Rachel's chagrin. Meanwhile, Joey is having trouble at his new job at Central Perk, and Monica is vehemently denying the fact that she's sick. I think that Reese Witherspoon was a perfect choice to play Rachel's sister, and if it had been any other actress, this episode would not have been as successful as it was.moreless
