  • Janice returns... again.

    This episode was really great. And this season is running along beautifully. I like how they still incorporate Janice in the plot, even though Chandler and her aren't an item anymore. The way Chandler & Monica got out of inviting her to the wedding was hilarious. Monica saying that Chandler still has feelings for her. Then Janice says "Call me" Hilarious. Ross' plot was also very good. He becomes a library cop to get from people to make out next to his book. But he ends up doing it himself! Rachel & Phoebe trying to get Joey to like a girl he was about to ditch was great! It was sad at the end for him though, when she ditched him. I guess he got a taste of his own medicine. All plots were great!moreless
  • Great episode!

    I really like this epsiode. It somehow seems a little different from other episodes of "Friends", but is still great. Rachel gets up one morning and finds Joey leaving their apartment with his date, Erin, still there. He asks Rachel to tell her that he isn't looking for a serious relationship, but instead she and Rachel end up spending the day together. She and Phoebe love Erin and after a lot of conniving and convincing, they finally get Joey to puruse a relationship with her. Their plan backfires, however, when Erin turns the tables on them and wants them to tell Joey that she isn't looking for a long-term relationship. Meanwhile, Ross is thrilled to discover that his dissertation is in the school library - until he finds out that the stacks where it's located is used for "extracurricular activities".moreless
  • good episode!

    Ross gets angry because students have sex over the aisle of where does he writes his book so he tells the librarians that they should tighten up security, but they are unable to do it. Later, Ross finds a woman that actually reads the books and end up having sex. Chandler and Monica tried to do something in order to tell cordially Chandler's ex girlfriend that she is not invited to the wedding. Rachel and Phoebe managed to take up Joey's relationship a new level so he can see what happened, but it does not works as the girl does not thinks in a future between them. Cool episode!moreless
