  • Chandler's flamboyant romance-novelist mother comes to New York for a visit. Monica and Phoebe cause a traffic accident. (DVD Summary)

    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.
