  • A terrific comedic episode that demonstrates what the show is capable of when it leans back and just has fun.

    TOW The Cat is a great example of how funny this show can be, even when it largely abandons the soap opera-ish elements. All of the characters share in the fun, and each gets to flex their comedic chops. I particularly enjoyed Monica's date with Rachel's old high school prom date. His inability to leave his high school memories and persona provides some really funny moments. Chandler and Joey getting their apartment fleeced as they attempt to sell their entertainment center is hilarious as well. The scenes with Phoebe and the cat are less effective, but still humorous. There's even some amusing Ross/Rachel sniping that caps off a fun episode.
