Episode Summary

Rachel and Phoebe compete to be Monica's maid-of-honor. Joey and Ross find themselves in awkward positions after a nap. Monica insists that Chandler apologize to an ex-girlfriend for dumping her because of a weight gain.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • nap partners

    The funny part about this episode probably is when Joey and Ross watch die hard twice ending up falling asleep together the funny part is they wake-up and freak out lol I knew Ross had gay moments but I didn't think Joey would either lmao.
  • slap five for a welcome home?

    Near the beginning of the episode Monica and Chandler slap five. Why?
  • Best episode of Season 7.

    While all the episodes of Friends are good and re-watchable, there are some that truly stand out as great in the season. Rachel and Phoebe compete against each other to be Monica's maid-of-honor while Monica tries to convince Chandler to apologize to his ex-girlfriend for dumping her for being fat. But the really funny storyline involves Ross and Joey taking a nap together and really enjoying it. The scene where Ross admits to Joey about enjoying the nap has got to be one of the show's funniest moments. This is one of those episodes of Friends that I watch again and again and laugh out loud every time I watch it.moreless
  • "That was a great nap" - Joey "It really was" - Ross

    This episode was just another step closer the wedding. As Phoebe & Rachel compete to be Maid Of Honor. You think it will be Phoebe but then it means to much for Rachel so she ends up getting it. I like how they actually had to compete in a game to get the title. Judged by Joey & Ross. Joey & Ross napping together was the funniest plot of the episode. When everyone finds out in the end, was great. I'm glad that they took a break from the Tag storyline. Chandler & Monica's plot was filler. Chandler just apologizes to a fat friend from camp. Great episode.moreless
  • "Julie Graff my camp girlfriend"-Chandler Bing

    Joey and Ross accidentally take a nap together and much to their dismay, find that they like it. Phoebe and Rachel compete to be Monica's maid of honor. This episode was great but I thought that the season seven wasn't that great compared to the other apart from nine which is the worst, but the nap partners was great after watching Die hard twice Ross and Joey accidentally nap together after that they are like a married couple al the way through the episode, Ross doesn't want to nap with joey but Joey claiming it was the best nap ever LOL, in the end they nap agian and are caught by the rest of the gang, it was a great episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: When Monica is talking to Chandler through the bathroom door, he comes out without flushing the toilet.
      Note: As Chandler pointed out to Monica, she had interrupted what he was doing, so perhaps he never really got started so there was no need to flush--or wash his hands for that matter (which we also would have heard).
