Episode 15 - TOW Ross & Rachel...You Know

29 March 2012

Synopsis: Joey buys a big screen TV and two recliner chairs and he and Chandler refuse to get out of them. Rachel and Ross go on their first date and Monica falls for Richard, a friend of her fathers.

The Good: The chemistry between the couples is very believable and well orchestrated here. Rachel and Ross are cute and they have some laughs as they get together. Monica and Richard (Tom Selleck) do an excellent job clumsily falling for each other. Joey and Chandler are fun as they get more committed to their laziness. Even Phoebe is good value in her supporting roles.

The Bad: The Joey and Chandler plot doesn’t go anywhere in particular. Surely Ross would have been fired for having sex in the museum?

Best Line: (Ro on phone) “Whoa whoa whoa, Australopithecus isn’t supposed to be in that display. No, no no Homo Habilis was erect, Australopithecus was never fully erect.”
(C) “Well maybe he was nervous.”

Best Friend: Rachel
