  • Put those six together (even when only playing poker), and you\'ve got a perfect episode. One of the best ever.

    This episode was one of the best in \'Friends\', ever. It showed us how great those six friends are together. Many series need guest stars all the time, or big plots, but \'Friends\' never did, even in the first season. Simple conversation between six good friends were already hilarious.

    Rachel and Ross were already perfect together, Joey and Phoebe were so ridiculous it was hilarious, and Chandler making fun of Monica about her problems when losing was SO, but SO funny.

    And this has one of the best lines ever.
    Phoebe: Joker is poker with a J. Coincidence?
    Chandler: Oh! That\'s Joincidence with a C!

    And by the way, if you\'ve never seen this episode on DVD, do. Because the scene of Ross, Chandler and Joey dancing to the sound of \'The Lion Sleeps Tonight\' is one of the funniest things in 10 years of \'Friends\'.
