Episode 10 - TOW The Inappropriate Sister

29 March 2012

Synopsis: After finally getting a date with Danny, Rachel discovers that he is inappropriately close with his sister. Phoebe takes charity donations on the street and becomes increasingly angry at people’s disregard for her collecting bucket. Ross advises Joey to write a movie for himself but it leads to arguments with Chandler who wants Joey to relax.

The Good: Joey is good here with the odd decent joke. Although the arguments between Ross and Chandler are laboured, it is a decent story.

The Bad: The Phoebe story is poor and as ever, instead of the moral ditsy girl she was, she is now being angry and rude for the sake of jokes and not even good ones. I don’t like any “I’m dating a freak” story lines because they are not realistic, but they are bearable when they are funny. Unfortunately Rachel’s story is not.

Best Line: (C on phone) “Hello, Chandler Bing.”
(J in woman’s voice) “Hello Mr Bing, I love you.”
(C) “Whoever this is, stop calling me! It’s been six months, it’s not funny.”
(J) “But I love you.”
(C) “Leave me alone, for the love of God leave me alone.”
(J to Ro) “And that’s Wednesday.”

Best Friend: Joey
