  • This is the episode that sealed the fate for Friends to be a hit. The hockey game incident and the subsequent trip to the emergency room afterward are pure genious. Matthew Perry's character Chandler really stands out in this episode.

    This episode really only has two main points. One, the girls have a sleep-over and order pizza. Only the pizza delivery kid messes up the order and gives them the wrong pizza. Meanwhile their pizza is sent across the street to George Stephanopoulos, the guy all 3 girls have a crush on, especially Phoebe & Monica. They spend the rest of the evening by the window, staring out it with binoculars to get a view of George. And they get disappointed when they find out he is on a date. But that soon changes when he walks around naked. Meanwhile the guys are at a hockey game and Ross gets hit in the head with the puck. He goes to the emergency room and the check-in nurse is literally the nurse from Hell. It is the most hilarious moment in Season 1, especially when Chandler goes head to head with her.
