Episode 9 - TOW All The Candy

29 March 2012

Synopsis: Monica makes candy for her neighbours in order to get to know them. However they like it so much that they start demanding it all the time. Ross buys Phoebe her first bike and despite her resistance teaches her to ride it. Rachel and Tag are secretly fooling around at work. Then he accidentally sends a joke evaluation she wrote about him to human resources.

The Good: Rachel and Tag are fine in their “cute” storyline. They play well off each other and the mistaken evaluation is handled in a believable manner. Ross is sweet as he looks after Phoebe. The Monica candy plot does throw up the odd laugh especially if you enjoy Joey getting swept up in the excitement.

The Bad: Phoebe looks like a child, Monica looks like a doormat and most of the jokes are cheap and unconvincing. But all things considered this is a harmless smile-along episode.

Best Line: (M) “I’ll put some out first thing in the morning.”
(Gary - neighbour looking for candy) “Well Ok I’ll swing by later. You live in this building?”
(M - nods) Ummm! Seems like I woulda remembered you.”
(C) “Ummm! Night Gar!”

Best Friend: Rachel
