  • A forgettable filler.

    8.0
    Although the plot was still good, the writers should of added a serialized plot to go with this episode. Because when I re-watched this episode, I forgot that it even existed! So Ross kisses Chandler's mom but all is forgiven in the end, and then Chandler's mom disappears and doesn't come back ever. So it was a bit of a filler as well. All the Paolo scenes drove me insane. Ross belongs with Rachel which I guess was the whole point of the kiss. Monica & Phoebe with the coma patient, it was predictable that the guy wasn't going to like either of them again. So eh.

    Another episode among the best of the first season. I love the character Nora Tyler Bing: a sassy, sexy novelist who happens to be Chandler's mom. Played by Morgan Fairchild, this woman can sure deliver a punchline. Introducing the somewhat unoriginal idea of a main character hooking up with another main character's mom, was performed brilliantly. The episode was able to end realistically with no one mad at each other. Monica and Phoebe's subplot was very funny. Poor Coma Guy never knew what hit him. Of course if it were me, I would have reacted the same way when I woke up. The girls were acting like crazy stalkers.
  • "Nora- um, Mrs. Mom- your Bing"

    In this episode Chandler's mom comes to town to talk on Jay Leno about her new book. THe gang goes out to dinner with her. Ross gets drunk because he's upset about Paolo and Rachel and he ends up kissing Chandler's mom, Mrs. Nora. Meanwhile, Monica and Phoebe flirt with a hot guy in a coma. They compete by going up there to shave him and change his clothes. They guess what kind of guy he is and what is name is. Monica reads the newspaper to him while Phoebe sings.

    "You don't have to be awake to be my man,
    As long as you have brainwaves I'll be there to hold your hand.
    Though we just met the other day, There's something I have got to say..."

    A great episode, with 2 brilliant storylines, such as; the coma and the kiss, the kiss was a really funny and the drag out of the kiss was really good as Ross is so scared of stepping out of line, when he actually does it's a really great piece of comedy! Plus the coma was brilliant, especially when he wakes up at the end of the episode and they both expect him to ask them out or something like that and he does nothing but a small thanks.

    Pheobe and Monica see a cute guy on the street and so Pheobe encourages to wolf whistle at him while his crossing the road. Monica woo woo's and he turns around only to get run over by a bus and go into a coma! They both compete with each other to see which one does the most for him. But when he wakes up the only thing he has to say is 'i'll see you around'

    Chandler's mum comes to New York and her and a very VERY drunk Ross share a kiss which is interupted by Joey and eventually causes sparks with Chandler!

    Chandler's book writing mom takes a trip to New York to come see him and he's unsure about the whole thing. Later when they are out to dinner Ross goes to make a call and so does Mrs. Bing Joey finds Mrs. Bing and Ross kissing. Monica and Phoebe try to impress the same guy,Coma Guy, but when Monica later trys to get his attention he is struck by an ambulance coming down the street. A true Friends classis that should really not be missed and should be cherished for such good writing, acting and the whole works for this one.
  • A great episode.

    5.0
    The beginning is funny when Monica whistles at this guy and he ends up getting hit by an ambulance. This episode is hilarious since they start to take care of the coma guy and in the end he has no idea who he is they basically did all that work for nothing. My favorite storyline is the other one though with Chandler/Chandler's Mom/Ross. The way they did it is the only way they could have done it to make it work. Because only bad things come out of Ross drinking and having to put up with Rachel and Paolo kissing all through dinner.

    We watch the friendship between Ross and Chandler get into a knot in this episode - But realise that there is nothing that can tighten that knot too tight.
  • Overall a great episode.

    9.3
    This is actually one of my favorite season one episodes, partially because Chandler was always my favorite Friend. I think Morgan Fairchild as his mom was great; and as people in their twenties, these characters still have parental things going opn, especially Chandler coming from the family he does. The story played out with Chandler, Nora and Ross, with Joey in there too, was good characterization. Joey doesn't like secrets, something that continues through the series, and he doesn't like lying. Great set up of that side of Joey. Ross is a loyal friend who is only human and will thus make mistakes, but he was truly sorry and felt truly horrible about it. As mad as Chandler got, he was forgiving. That's what this episode was about.

    The Monica/Phoebe/Coma Guy subplot was just hilarious.
  • When Monica causes a guy to get hit and go into a coma, her and Phoebe fight for his attention in the hospital while Chandler's romance novelist mother comes to town and kisses Ross.

    6.5
    This episode never got my attention. I found it boring. Perhaps because they focus on Mrs. Bing rather than on the characters. The show is supposed to be about the 6 of them as adults, not the 6 of them trying to deal with their issues with their parents. And it is never clear why Chandler was embarrased by his mom in the first place. Most guys would love a mother who is open-minded and liberal enough to buy their teenage sons condoms. It just didn't make sense as a plot line and that is why the entire episode failed. The coma guy sub plot was mildly interesting...but they rushed the ending of it. As soon as he wakes up he has no idea who they are. If I got hit by a vehicle due to someone calling my attention, I would think I would remember their face.
