Episode 4 - TOW Phoebe's Husband

29 March 2012

Synopsis: Rachel tries to stop Ross having sex with Julie, Phoebe divorces her husband and the friends discover Chandler has a third nipple.

The Good: Rachel is excellent throughout, from handling a pigeon to lying to Ross, she conveys her feelings superbly. Chandler’s nipple is the only really funny part of the story. The scene where all the secrets are revealed is the highlight.

The Bad: Phoebe’s secret marriage is ok, there is nothing wrong with a bit of back-story. But it doesn’t have much affect on her and seems like more of an excuse to try out the Friends writers’ favourite gimmick – of having a clichéd conversation in a juxtaposed setting.

Best Line: (M) “Oh it’s not big, not at all, you know kind of on the same lines as, say oh I don’t know, having a third nipple!”
(P) “You have a third nipple?”
(C) “You bitch!”

Best Friend: Rachel
