  • I was actually glad they broke up. Ross allowed the baggage from his marriage to make him whiney and insecure. He was happy with Rachel working @ a job where she was unfullfilled because he could be with her when HE wanted. ,moreless

    Its just a job he said. Selfish, selfish person. I can't imagine my life without you, at when he thought he was, he jumps @ the hot girl he made reference to earlier. No excuses, if the shoe were on the other foot i'd feel the same. Great episode, there is so much more I could say. I just think the self absorbed attitude he had it coming. You can't claim love while you're humping someone else. She answers the saying I'm glad you called honey, he hears Marks voice then dives off the cliff just a little faith Rossmoreless
  • We were on a break...

    9.5
    Ross and Rachel take a break after Ross shows up at Rachel's office with a picnic basket. Ross, heartbreaked, sleeps with another woman, which leads into the next episode and the whole "We were on a break thing".



    After a year, Ross and Rachel take a break. Now, this makes the show become even better. The whole comedy keeps on, and theres tones of drama coming up because of all this whole thing. Friends is a great show, and with this episode it becomes even better. Ross and Rachel's relationship reaches an end, and in the next episode starts the whole thing.moreless
  • Ross & Rachel break up.

    9.5
    Probably one of the saddest episodes of Friends, well the second saddest, the nest episode is the saddest. Anyways Ross & Rachel break up. Ross needs to stop mentioning Mark! If he hadn't they would of still been together. The whole translator storyline was hilarious! That must of been a weird situation. I mean, that must happen to no one in real life. So then Ross cheats! A great to be continued. I like how Joey & Chandler how their threesome would work out. Mark had to come in the way again. He was really nice to Rachel though. Helping her out. Great episode. (Pretty sad)moreless

    This episode was so good, as can be expected from "Friends." It was so romantic that Ross brought the picnic basket to Rachel's job. Even though Rachel seems ungrateful, Ross should have known not to bring anything when he knew she had a lot of work to do. This episode was a classic. I can not believe that Ross would kiss another woman when he still has feelings for Rachel and she still has feelings for him. This episode was so sad. I hate that they took a break, but it was very dramatic. This episode is yet another great installment to an already perfect series.moreless
