  • "Hannibal Lecter? Better roommate than you!"

    Chandler has had some problems with his new roommate Eddie in the previous episode - but this time Eddie's killing his last nerve. Chandler constantly tries to show him the door but everytime he succeeds ("Ding Dong, the psycho's gone") Eddie comes back into his life. Meantime Joey has some serious money problems after his character Drake Ramoray was killed in the episode before. Can Joey keep his appartment? Rachel, Phoebe and Monica have discovered a new book and are almost fanatic about it. Will their friendship be stronger?

    I think this is one of the funniest and best episodes in the whole series. Chandler's interaction with Eddie and his desperate actions to get him out of his appartment are just hilarious. "I mean this guy is standing in the window holding a human head. He's standing in the window holding a human head." The whole "Be your own Windkeeper" story is OK and delievers some funny moments. This episode also marks the first appearance of the white porcellan dog that will be there until the final episode.
    All in all it is a classic very funny episode and one of the best episodes ever.
