  • Chandler smokes again, Monica dates a man who soon becomes a hit -- each of the Friends likes him, and Phoebe has an amazing luck with money, but she doesn't want it.

    A very good classic episode. Chandler is starting to smoke again, although everyone can't stand cigarettes. Monica dates Alan, who soon becomes really boring, but she is having trouble with breaking up with him when all of her friends reaaaaaly love him. And Phoebe receives a large sum of money on her banking account, but she refuses to take it and gives it to some poor lady, and later receives a thumb in her drink, and a another large sum of money.

    The Friends continue showing their personalities -- we get to see how Phoebe doesn't care for money, and how she's willing to give the money to a poor lady, rather that be rich. Chandler is smoking again, and we get to see how he can't make himself quit, and he's going to have some trouble with cigarettes too, in the future. And Monica's story is also quite good, when everyone like the guy, except her, for the first time. All in all, another good episode of Friends.
