  • Very good.

    This is the 5th episode of Friends, and also the 5th episode of the first season. It is a really memorable episode and very funny. In this episode, the main storylines are; Chandler and Phoebe both want to break up their relationships, with Janice and Tony which they manage to do, although Phoebe's break up is a lot more successful than Chandler's. Rachel and Ross do laundry together, Ross teaches her. Monica and Joey try to break up a couple, so they can keep the peices for themselves and they succeed. A good line - Rachel: Okay, you caught me. I'm a laundry virgin.

    Ross: Uh, well, don't worry, I'll use the gentle cycle.
