    TOW the lottery is one of the better friends episodes of season 9. The gang, except Ross, buy a lot of lottery tickets. Chandler waits for a phone call about a promotion and Rachel thinks Emma is about to say her first word. Monica buys extra lottery tickets for her and Chandler and Ross joins after Monica convinces him. Rachel finds some of Monica's extra tickets and after arguing, Phoebe takes them out to the balcny and threatens to throw them off the edge. She never intended to throw them off, she just wanted the gang to realise friends were more important than money. However, thanks to a scary pigeon, she does drop them off and they only manage to recover half of them. In the end Phoebe wins three dollars and they find out that one of the lost tickets was worth 10,000 dollars. Chandler doesn't get the job he was hoping for but is offered an even better one. Rachel hears Emma say her first word, gleba. Overall a hilarious episode with moments similar to that of TOW Everyone finds out as all the gang are in it together.
