  • Excellent Geller parents.

    This episode introduces us to the Geller parents and is absolutely brilliant because of it. We are able to see Monica’s obsessive nature and be entertained by how her parents make her feel better about herself, telling her that because she was chubby and had no friends she would never get cancer. (Thanks for the support, Jack). I also love the Gellers for always assuming it was Monica’s fault – like when Ross tried to explain his situation with Carol and Judy turns to Monica and says, “And you knew about this?” It was brilliant. The whole scene with Susan, Carol and Ross at the hospital was funny too and it was great to see the threesome react – all not really feeling comfortable with the situation. But when Ross sees the sonogram at the end and wells up – I well up too. How many other shows can you feel so connected to the characters after only two shows that you start crying along with them?
