  • Rachel teaches Joey how to sail. Phoebe, Ross and Monica try to figure out a cookie recipe. Starring: Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox Arquette, Lisa Kudrow, Matt le Blanc, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer.

    Phoebe, Phoebe, Phoebe. There are occasional episodes where there are quotes that i really love to say, and of course give credit to the show and epiosde. This episode features one of my favorites. "You Americans really butcher the French language." Phoebe Buffay (Lisa Kudrow). Hilarious. This episode had comedy in every turn and original storylines. I loved that Monica (Courney Cox Arquette) later found out that the recipe that she had slaved to figure out was the one that was featured in Nestle Tollhouse. Another unique story line was Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) teaching Joey (Matt le Blanc) how to sail. The cooler with the sandwhiches on it was hilarious. I loved it.
  • a good episode

    Rachel tries to teach Joey how to sail his boat but gets really bossy so joey shouts at rachael and realisies she was in the wrong , and Chandler plays racquetball with Monica's father and he then sits on his lap naked in the sauna or steam room. Meanwhile, Monica tries desperately to reproduce Phoebe's grandmother's secret cookie recipe and tries many different times. and then finds out that she lied about the cookies and got them from nestle tollhouse. so its not a bad episode but not that good, not really worth watching. lol ha ha ha ha lol.
  • Excellent!

    Phoebe: I know! You see it is stuff like this which is why (Looking down) you’re burning in hell!!

    i love any story line with Phoebe because shes just hilarious and this is the perfect example of her \"blondenes\" because she didnt know that the cookies were in Monicas cupboard the whole time. she thought they were actually homemade!
    Phoebe is great in this!
  • The One With Phoebe's Cookies

    This is, in my opinion, the best episode. Every storyline is hilarious: Rachel tries to teach Joey how to sail his boat but turns into an overbearing perfectionist. Chandler plays racquetball with Monica's father and accidentally sits on his lap in the steam room...while they're both naked. Monica tries desperately to reproduce Phoebe's grandmother's secret cookie recipe.

    Monica: Okay. I’m gonna be the mom that makes the world’s best chocolate chip cookies.

    Chandler: Our kids are gonna be fat aren’t they.

    Joey: (drinking a beer) Look at this clown! Just because he’s got a bigger boat he thinks he can take up the whole river. (Yelling) Get out of the way jackass! (To Rachel) Who names his boat Coast Guard anyway?

    Rachel: That is the Coast Guard.

    Joey: What are they doing out here? The coast’s all the way over there.

  • A fantastic episode, especially with Phoebe and her grandmother's cookie recipe.

    Definitely one of the best season 7 episodes. Monica tries to find Phoebe's grandmother's cookie recipe by trying lots of different ingredients. It turns out that her grandmother's recipe is actually Nestle Tollhouse's. Rachel takes Joey sailing and she is so mean to him that he doesn't want to sail anymore. She apologises to him but soon realises she is turning into her father, who used to shout at her when she was younger. Joey also realises he is turning into his father when he shouts at Rachel for not eating a sandwich properly. A hilarious episode if only for Phoebe ('its stuff like this thats why youre burning in hell!!!') and Joey ('i'm a tribbiani and tribbianis quit.)
  • Cool episode!

    Monica wants to find out about Phoebe's secret recipe for an engagement present, but Phoebe accidentally burns it out, and Monica tries everything to find out the recipe, but nothing works, until she finds out that in fact it is a recipe that she had over for two days. Meanwhile, Rachel and Joey discovered that each other have inherit their father's horrible way of teachings, Rachel with the boats, and Joey with how to eat sandwiches. And an odd accident occurs twice to Chandler, one where he sits on Monica's father when both of them are naked, and one where he accidentally enters naked into the hot tub. Really cool!
  • it was ok

    THis episdoe Rachel is trying to teach Joey to sail. Of cousre Joey is being his usual self and won't pay attention to Rachels leason. Chandler plays racket ball with Monica and Ross's dad. When they go into the steam room she can't see where he's sitting and sits down on Mr. Geller's lap, naked lap! That was pretty gross but funny. Phoebe wants to give Monica and Chandler an enganement present and Monica wants her grandmother's cookie recipe. Monica trys to get the recipe from eating the last cookie Phoebe made. After cooking over 17 differnt batches of cookies Monica realizes that the recipe was in her cabinet the enitre time.
  • Rachel teaches Joey how to sail.

    I like how they didn't throw away the plot when Joey got a boat at the end of the sixth season. And they also didn't throw away the plot when Rachel said she sailed when she was younger in previous episodes. So Friends is really good with continuity. Rachel bossing Joey around was hilarious. Joey being clueless was just as funny. Did Phoebe move in with Monica and Chandler again? I think I missed that. Monica trying to get the cookie recipe was also great. And it turned out to be from Nestle Tollhouse the whole time! Chandler sitting on Monica's dad naked is always funny. All plots were great!

    I have to say that the seventh season isn't as good as last season. Still funny but not as good. The cookie thing wasn't that interesting. I found it qutie boring and it took up alot of time. Joey was the funniest because of his thing with Rachel topless and what he does with his boat and not sail. He was also funny when he yelled at the coast guard and called him a jack a*s. He even asked Rachel what he was doing and she said he is the coast guard and Joey was like but the coast is over there!
