Episode 10 - TOW Rachel Quits

29 March 2012

Synopsis: Ross injures a little girl and tries to make it up to her. Phoebe tries to save old Christmas trees and Rachel quits her job at Central Perk.

The Good: Rachel’s change of career makes a lot of sense as she has been a waitress for a long time. The punch line that she has to make coffee at her new job is a good one. Ross selling cookies is good for a laugh and Chandler’s line about the drunken Santa wetting himself is funny. Phoebe’s old Christmas tree plot is a little silly, but I suppose it fits her character pretty well.

The Bad: A good episode in terms of story and characters, it just isn’t that funny.

Best Line: (Ro) “I’m an honorary Brown Bird.” (Woman through peep hole) “What does that mean?”
(Ro) “Well it means that I can sell cookies but I’m not invited to sleep overs.”

Best Friend: Ross

  • The irony is what makes it stand apart from the other serials. Rachel's statement, "as of this moment, I will never have to make coffee again" and making coffee at her new job.
