  • Brilliant - this episode just goes to show how well the writers really know the characters.

    I love this episode for numerous reasons, but mostly because the writers are able to twist storylines, going back into the past, and still retain all the characters and the feeling of the show.
    My favourite parts include Rachel's dream sequence at the end where she hits the jukebox and the music starts and then she kisses Chandler. I thought it was great because there is no feasible way they would have kissed otherwise.
    I love Mr Heckles - although Eric shounds like a great roommate to have, if it wasn't for Heckles, Joey wouldn't be around and Chandler wouldn't be obsessed with Baywatch.
    I also loved Phoebe trying to hide the fact she had moved out with such lame lines as "It's not in the apartment?" when Monica asks where her bed is.
    Classic show, with dozens of brilliant lines - especially the double meanings with Ross and Phoebe on the pool table.
