  • Season 3, Episode 4.

    Janice is so hilarious. Maggie Wheeler plays the part really well. Phoebe pretends to be Joey's agent and has some success in getting him auditions. Ross is upset when Ben brings a Barbie doll on his weekend visit. Chandler is advancing in his relationship with Janice and, realizing that he has a fear of commitment, goes to the girls for advice. I love how Chandler drives Janice away. I kinda feel bad about how Janice is treated, but it's just too freakin' hilarious! I love it! Friends always delivers great quality, and even when they aren't funny, they always provide an entertaining story.
  • Janice & Chandler have commitment issues.

    The whole 'Janice & Chandler have commitment issues' plot was amazingly hilarious. It's funny to find out how Rachel & Monica have ice cream ready for "cases" like this. Chandler takes the fear of commitment and takes it to a whole new level, when he is all for commitment. I'm surprised to see how much Chandler is willing to go for Janice, when he absolutely hated her in season one. Phoebe pretending to be Joey's agent was nice of her, so it was a pretty good plot. Ross trying to make Ben not gay was absolutely hilarious! A great episode that was very funny.
  • This is another well-written episode by Alexa Junge, including a relationship issue between Chandler and Janice.

    This is one of the best of season 3, especially with the growth that Chandler makes with his relationship issues. It's touching when Joey "makes sense" about Chandler's fear of committment, such that he says Chandler should be the most committed man he has ever been. For a moment, it works - as Chandler finds out the place he is fearful of really isn't that bad. It's interesting what happens though - Janice seems surprised and worried about Chandler's change of heart, not so much because she is going through a divorce, but that she never expected "Channduhlahh" to want such a committment. It's a great moment, especially when Chandler is talking to Monica and Rachel about what happened. The girls also have never looked so pretty in that scene. :)
  • This episode is a great example of why Friends is, you know, Friends.

    This episode is great, the whole Chandler, Rachel and Monica scene is great, because, since Janice reaction wasn\'t the expected, Rachel and Monica didn\'t knew what to do, so they could help Chandler. Is great. And the fact that Phoebe is such a great friend, telling Joey the truth, so that we would improve is acting squiles is just great. Amazing show.
