    Which episodes mentioned how Moncia got the apartment through "rent control" from her grandmother?

    I teach economics and have used this example in my class. I want to know which episode specifically dealt with this.

    Thanks. One of my kids said that there were two episodes that mentioned this. No of any others? Thank you again.

    In The Last One in season 10, towards the end of the episode, Chandler was talking to the newborn twins, and he mentioned about how because of rent control, the apartment was a "friggin' steal." That's another reference I remember, I'm not sure of another one.

    TOW the Flashback

    Monica: This place is really my Grandmother's. I got it from her when she moved to Florida, otherwise I could never afford a place like this. So if the landlord ever asks, I'm 87 year old woman, who's afraid of her VCR. So are you thirsty?

    Yeah, I remember more than one reference (probably the ones mentioned previously).

    The writers had to make up a story to explain how Monica lived in such an expensive apartment, because the show was getting criticized for the plot hole.
