  • Ross and Monica go to the bedside of their dead grandmother, who momentarily returns to life. Chandler questions his sexual persona when a colleague wants to arrange a date for him-- with another guy! (DVD Summary)

    Truly a heartfelt episode. It takes intelligent writers to make decent humor in a loved one's death. Dying twice is quite original. It seemed a little weird at first to see the friends on location, but it worked well. I love when Ross is helping pick out Nana's clothes and it starts raining sweet and low packets. I still tear up during that scene even though I have seen it a hundred times. I also love after the funeral at the Gellers' home. Ross is hilarious as a drugged out buffoon. And poor Monica struggles with her mother yet again. As for Chandler: you do not have a gay "quality." Straight men can be polite and clean too!
