  • Good, but not great

    In "The One With the Joke", Ross and Chandler fight over a joke that Ross had published in Playboy, both of them claiming that it's "their" joke. Janine has moved out of Joey's apartment, and because he can't pay the bills, he gets a job at Central Perk. Monica, Phoebe, and Rachel ask each other who they would date out of the three of them. Monica and Rachel are undecided, but Phoebe says she would date Rachel. This, of course, causes a huge conflict between the three girls. Phoebe finally admits that she thinks that Rachel is a "push-over" and Monica is "high maintenance". Rachel and Monica argue back, saying that Phoebe is "flaky", to which she agrees. I believe that this episode could have been done better, but it was still a good one.
