    Trivia: Watch carefully the scenes with both Ross and Russ in. The camera is not quite on the dot.

    Monica gets back together with Bobby, who has problems with alcohol. Monica successfully tries to help him give up drinking, but once he does, he is not happy and funny anymore. Joey gets chosen to play the role of Dr. Drake Ramoray, a neurosurgeon, on Days of Our Lives. Rachel begins dating a guy named Russ, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Ross. Eventually Rachel dumps Russ telling him he reminds her of someone, though she can't figure out who. In the end Russ and Julie hook up. Funny episode from Friends - like always. I love the storyline with "Fun Bobby" drinking too much. i love the way the gang freak out about Rachel having a date with somebody else other than Ross, but then turns out it is just like Ross. His name is Russ, he looks like Ross, everything about him is Ross, which is extremely funny. I love the ending - F-U-N-N-Y!

    Monica gets back together with Fun Bobby and encourages him to stop drinking. Joey gets chosen to play the role of Dr. Drake Ramoray, a neurosurgeon, on Days of Our Lives. Rachel begins dating a guy named Russ, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Ross. People dont like this episode but I found Russ and Ross argueing to be very funny and the part where Rachel realized they where a like was priceless so I dont know why it is seen as one of the worst episodes of the show. So im going to to give this a respectable 9 out of 10.
  • Ross, Russ. Russ, Ross. See the similarity yet?

    Rachel dates some guy named Russ who is exactly like Ross, but just slightly different. The rest of the friends see it except for Ross and Rachel. When Ross finally meets Russ, it's like a boring competition between the two. They compete in doing a puzzle and even compete against who is a "real" doctor. Although the two are splitting images of each other, Ross seems to dislike Russ and points out parts of his personality that irritated him. However, the things he pointed out were exactly the things he did himself. After given a closer observation, Rachel finallt realizes that Russ is just like Ross. She's freaked out and dumps him.

    This episode was pretty funny. The idea of Russ is somewhat a little less mediocre than genius. Whoever thought of that should get some kind of reward. To make it even better, David Schwimmer played the part of Russ as well. Only he could get the character down so perfectly.

  • David Schwimmer guest stars as Russ! Um wait, what!?

    A very strange episode. David Schwimmer plays two people on Friends! He plays Russ! Which ends up with Julie. Now I don't feel that bad for Julie now that she ends up with Russ. Ross & Rachel don't see the resemblance of Ross & Russ. So much R's! They act and look exactly alike. Fun Bobby returns! Later on in the episode he turns in to Depressing Bobby when Monica convinces him to stop drinking. Then Monica starts drinking, then she becomes an alcoholic! That was hilarious. The first episode in the Dr. Drake Ramoray arc. A great episode and a start of a wonderful arc!
  • Not a good episode.

    This episode annoys me alot. The character Russ is not that interesting I don't really care that he is basically identical to Ross and everything I mean it didn't really make the episode that good. Fun Bobby not being fun brought the episode down alot to. This episode seemed to be too serious in a way and not that fun. If they made them into two separate episodes then it may have been interesting because you won't get a chance to fall asleep because it would have been interesting. They could have done this episode alot better than they did.
