Episode 23 - TOW Ross' Thing

29 March 2012

Synopsis: Ross has a skin abnormality on his butt and no one knows what it is. Monica thinks that Pete is going to propose to her and wonders what it would be like to say yes. Phoebe is dating two guys and can’t choose between them.

The Good: The Monica and Pete story is the best one here. The speculation brings out the best in the girls as they each get excited in their own way. Rachel is especially funny as her enthusiasm is linked to Pete’s wealth. Monica’s reaction to his actual news is very well acted. Ross’ story is light and funny and leads to some amusing moments as he seeks various remedies for his affliction. Phoebe’s story is predictable but she has fun with it, particularly when she is confronted by them and stops being able to sing.

The Bad: Phoebe and Ross’ stories both feel like time filler and aren’t funny enough to overcome the feeling of insignificance.

Best Line: (GS) “Hello, I am Gura Saj. (Sees duck) Whoa! He’s supposed to be a duck right? Coz otherwise this is way out of my league.”

Best Friend: Phoebe
