  • Character Development.

    This is the 3rd episode of Friends, and there is a lot of character development in this episode. In 'The one with the Thumb' the main storylines are; Monica brings home her new boyfriend who's called Alan to meet everyone, and they like him - A LOT however the trouble is, she doesn't. Also Phoebe finds a thumb in her can of soda, hence the name the one with the thumb. In minor storylines, Ross discovers his dog died, Rachel finds out about the dating language and Chandler starts smoking again. Character development in this episode - Rachel is slightly dumb, we find out Chandler used to smoke, we find out a lot more about Phoebe. A funny quote - Chandler: I personally could have a gallon of Alan.
