    Rachel and Barry start dating again, which is kind of awkward because he's now engaged to Mindy, who wants Rachel to be her maid of honor. But when Rachel finds out that Mindy and Barry had an affair while she was engaged to Barry, the two women decide to call Barry out on it. Meanwhile, Chandler goes nuts when a woman he likes won't return his phone calls and the gang become annoyed at discovering that a person in Ugly Naked Guy's building is spying on them with a telescope. This is where Chandler makes the classic joke about the leaf blower. I love the start of this episde. OOh how I would love to live in New York with a group of cool friends - it's perfect. Another awesome episode - however I'm not really a fan of Barry, he annoys me. Best quotes -Joey: Rachel: "Get Down!"..."Get Down?" ..... Chandler: "And Boogie". Chandler is one of the biggest legends of TV.

    The one with the evil orthodontist is alright by Friends standards. Rachel goes to see Barry about marrying her maid of honour and ends up having an affair with him. She then finds out about him having an affair with Mindy when she was his fiance. She confides in Mindy about her affair and the two angry women go to confront Barry. They decide to mke him choose, and he chooses Mindy over Rachel ultimately. Monica: (Looking out the window) Look look! He's doing it again, the guy with the telescope!
    Phoebe: Oh, my God! Go away! (Waving her arms) Stop looking in here!
    Monica: Great, now he's waving back.
    Joey: Man, we gotta do something about that guy. This morning, I caught him looking into our apartment. It creeps me out! I feel like I can't do stuff!
    Monica: What kinda stuff...?
  • very funny as usual

  • Rachel is "the other woman."

    I really didn't like how Rachel gets back with Barry, it was like a waste of time, since Rachel left him at the altar. Memorable quotes such as "We can go to Aruba, Mindy" - Barry "What's with you and Aruba? Do you have some sort of deal with airlines or something?" -Rachel. That made me laugh so hard. Chandler's plot, he is waiting for a girl to call him back, and by the end he doesn't want to date her. Whole thing was a filler since Mindy still ends up with Barry, and Rachel stays being maid of honor. So an okay episode.

My least favourite eppisode of the series sadly came during the fisrt season mainly because I hate Barry every episode he is in he isnt funny. Sadly I give this a low of 7.5
  • Barry & Rachel have an affair while he is engaged to her maid of honor Mindy, much to the chagrin of her friends. Meanwhile Chandler is eagerly waiting for his date to call him back.

    This episode was boring. I found it very irritating. It was like all this progress had been made, especially on Rachel's character, and they bring back Barry who she decides to sleep with, knowing he is engaged to her former maid of honor? That is not a likeable quality in a character of a sitcom. Especially when she used to refer to Barry as "Mr Potato Head". So why would she sleep with him, knowing he is cheating on his fiance? And Chandler's story line was just as bad. He waits around the phone continuously for his date to call him back. But when she finally gets a hold of him, he loses all interest in her? Sorry, this was a very bad episode.
