  • Amazing acting!

    This was a marvelous episode and I loved all the sets that were acted on. The did a wonderful job showing the rain outside.

    Chandler accidently gives advice to David causing him to believe he should propose to Phoebe. Chandler tells Monica what he did and she thinks what he did was awful because Phoebe still loves Mike.

    Meanwhile relationships are ending and some are beginning. Charlie is spending a lot of time with Ross and Rachel is struggling with what to do with her feelings for Joey. Monica calls Mike and tells him David is thinking about proposing. He is stunned and rushes to Barbados to stop it. Right before David proposed Mike interrupts saying he needs to talk to her. He proposes, but Phoebe says no because she never wanted a proposal she just wanted to know the relationship was going somewhere. David leaves.

    Ross is reading his speech to Charlie and when finishes she says is great! Then Rachel, Joey, and Chandler walk in. Chandler wants to use the computer to check his emails and unknowingly opens a virus shutting down the whole computer. Ross doesn't have a hard copy and is furious. Charlie offers to help recreate it since she just heard it, but has to break off plans with Joey. Joey understand and ends up hanging out with Rachel.

    Soon enough Charlie and Joey talk about how they are having fun but it seems as if it is not with eachother. They brake up.

    Mike realizes that there is a ping-pong table in the game room and Monica decides to play him. They have a massively long match untill Monica hurts her hand. She finds out that she is too hurt to continue playing, Remember Monica hates losing so the love of her life, Chandler offers to play for her. He secretly has some skill and wins the game! Monica's hair is absolutely insane.

    Joey seeks Rachel and talks about how Charlie broke things off with him. He says that he is always going after the wrong girl, but Rachel says that she disagrees. Joey doesn't realize that Rachel means that she likes him untill he leaves. He comes back and they chat about it and have an akward conversation. Joey says he could never do that to Ross.

    Later on Ross and Charlie are flirting and hiding from a bunch of palentolagist. Eventually they kiss. He says it can't happen but then changes his mind. Joey comes across them kissing and realizes if Ross could do that to him then he made a mistake not trying things with Rachel. I feel Joey is right because Ross wasn't with Rachel for 6 years, Charlie and Joey have been apart for about a day. So it's a bigger deal on Ross' end and he is the one making the bigger mistake.

    Joey then goes to talk to Rachel. He knocks on the door and she answers saying, "What are you doing here?" He goes in and kisses her. "Oh," whispers Rachel and they begin kissing again. End Scene.

    I loved this episode but my ultimate favorite ending are in the airports they are always the best! I noticed some goofs and weird things while watching this episode. When Monica hurts herself while playing ping-pong it is obvious that all she does is hit the table with her racket. Also when Chandler wins at the end lmao the ball hits off the black thing behind Mike and hits him in the head. They immediatly change the shot because they didn't want to have Chandler make the winning point again, but it's so obvious haha.

    Last but not least what the hell is Rachel wearing on her arm in all of this episode?????
