  • A classic!

    "Gum Would be Perfection" No matter how many times I watch this episode I cannot help but laugh histerically. It doesn't grow old!

    Just as Phoebe is about to break out with song, the entire city of New York loses power. Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Ross and Joey, head back to Monica and Rachels apartment while Chandler gets stuck in an ATM vestibule. Much to his surprise stuck there with him is a Victoria Secret Model - Jill Goodacre. Chandler being Chandler he creeps her out at first, but after she saves him from chocking on somebody elses gum they have a "Great Blackout" together. Ross is devestated when Rachel falls for a non-english speaking Italian.
