  • Ross and Rachel are back together after Ross "reads" Rachel's letter and accepts responsibility for their breakup. Phoebe is dealing with learning who her birth mom really is and Joey, Monica, and Chandler are hiding an incident that happened on the beach

    I have seen this episode so many times and it makes me laugh every time. The comedy climaxes when Ross finally loses his cool and tells Rachel exactly what he thinks of her idea that he is responsible for the breakup and the letter she wrote. "Don't worry about me losing sleep. I still have your letter!!!!" Monica, Chandler and Joey grappling with having to use urine to cure Monica's jellyfish sting is a silly but effective B-plot. Teri Garr is delightful as Phoebe's birth mother and watching them find their commonalities is great fun. This is one to watch again and again.
