  • Rachel and Phoebe convince Joey to keep dating a girl that they like. Monica unintentionally invites Janice to her wedding and she and Chandler try to find a way to tactfully uninvite her.

    Great episode! Janice is back! She is so funny! When Joey saw her he ran away! That was so funny! I bet if she saw him she would of hooked up with him. She did with Chandler and Ross and last time she said to Joey 2 out of 3! I so would of laughed if she did that! That guy was gay When Ross asked him about that library part he wanted to go with Ross! Lol. That was so funny!
  • goofy

    Ross finds out a paper he wrote is in the library at the school and when he goes to see it he finds out that people har having sex by his book, with the lack of security he stands up there to keep people away. In doing so he meets a pretty blond who has actually read his book and ends up fulling around with her up there too. Janice is back and finds out about Monica and Chandler's engagement. They lie to her and tell her that Chandler still has feelings for her to make sure she doesn't come to the wedding.
  • 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!
  • 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".
  • 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!
  • Not the best episode but hilarious nonetheless.

    Not as good as some other season 7 episodes but still humorous. Ross's book is put in the library but he discovers that students are using the area to make out. After trying to increase security Ross eventually gets caught in the act he was trying to prevent. At the end of the episode Ross catches Monica and Chandler there too. Rachel and Phoebe try to convince Joey to keep dating a woman he slept with. He turns out to quite like her, but she doesn't like him in the end. Janice comes back in this episode and finds out about the wedding. Eventually she thinks that she's invited to the wedding, she'll sing a song there and she thinks that Monica and Chandler think of her as family. In the end she goes because Monica says Chandler still has feelings for her. Overall this episode is much better than any other show's average one, but it was slightly disappointing the way Janice was put in it. Probably one of the worse episodes with Janice in, which is a shame as they normally are one of the best episodes of the season.
