Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • 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
  • One of my most favorite episodes of Friends with really fun storyline for each of the six especially the nap-partners.

    I always like the continuous gag of Ross and Joey be involved in scenarios that make them a gay couple like TOW The stoned Guy , TOW Barry and Mindy's Wedding or The One Hundredth but this one is the most hilarious Joey/Ross gag. Phoebe/Rachel's competition is quite hilarious and the Chandler/Monica scenes are also quite good.

    It starts of with Monica telling Rachel and Phoebe that they should decide who is to be Mon's maid of honor. So they compete with each other and as per Joey's suggestion, have it like an audition. Ross and Joey fall asleep together while watching Die Hard, after Chandler (thankfully) leaves when Joey calls him a b[beep]tch They decide not to talk about it but then later on admit to each other that they loved the nap. Joey and Ross are the judges while Phoebe and Rachel take the audition for the maid of honor and Phoebe uses the guys' weakness for (good old American girl on girl) to win. After realizing how much it meant for Rachel to be Monica's maid of honor since high school, Phoebe tells her to take the position just before Rachel realizing how much neurotic Monica can get, and tells the amused Phoebe that Monica would be her maid of honor when she does marry.Chandler in high school broke up with a girl because she was faaaaat which doesn't please Monica , so she asks him to apologize to the girl to which he complies but things manage to get messy. Ross and Joey finally have the nap again only to be humiliatingly caught by the rest of the gang in one of funniest credit scenes in Friends. Ross's not so pleasant 'excuse me' in the end is hilarious.moreless
