    This episode is one of the best from Season 1, incorporating a true event from NY, the major blackout.

    The 5 friends are in Monica's apartment, and Chandler is stuck in an ATM Vestibule with Jill Goodacre.

    The whole Chandler and Jill storyline is so funny due to Chandler's failing attemps in flirting with Jill. I couldn't stop laughing when spit his gum out and picked someone else's gum and chews it, and when he says "Gum would be perfection".

    Ross tries to ask Rachel out, with Joey's support, but a cat gets in the way, which leads to Rachel meeting Paolo, evil evil Paolo. The scene with Ross flailing about with the cat on his back is hilarious!

    Overall great episode.
