Joey/Rachel felt awkward. I mean they've been friends, almost sibling like for about 8 years and then this happens. Yes they eased us in with Joey's crush in season 8 but it still dosen't feel right. I guess the writers want more of the friends to date more of the friends, but to me Ross/Rachel and Monica/Chandler were enough. I'd prefer it if they didn't complicate their little family with complicated dramas.
Ross and Chandler's storyline was okay. David did a great job with the wacky, hopped up on sugar act but the dilaogue was cheesy.
Phoebe and Monica saved the episode with their little disagreement. "The food here at Javus will kill you!" Hilarious!
