  • A great episode with many funny jokes.

When she tells them about the money, they send her a letter, apologizing, with a football phone, and credit her account $500 more. So she decidees to give the money away, and then discovers a human thumb floating in her can of soda and gets compensation of $7,000. Everyone seems to love Alan, Monica's boyfriend. However, Monica wants to break up with him and it seems harder for her friends than her or Alan himself. Chandler starts smoking and after a little chat with Alan, he decides to quit - however, when Monica and Alan break up, he is about to start again when Phoebe says that she will give him her $7000 compensation money if he stays the way he is. This episode is a very funny episode and I enjoyed watching it. Great.
