  • A potential Friends classic

    This episode is my personal favorite from season eight, mainly because of its fantastic writing as well as having all six Friends together. The jokes that carry on through the episode are hilarious, most notable the revelation that Joey (as "Ken Adams" lol) made up the Europe story that Rachel used to entice Ross. What is even more funny is how while Rachel denies that she initially came on to Ross, the truth is revealed when the Friends watch Ross's videotape, unbeknownst to Rachel at first. The episode's best moment then comes when the friends (and Rachel) realize that Rachel was the one. ("Now I'm so happy!" - a killer line from Ross! LOL) The other portions of the episode hold up as well, including Monica and Chandler being potential "rejects" of their new friends Greg and Jenny, and the end when Ross and Rachel view the tape together in the apartment. Certainly one the Friends' best moments!
