Episode 3 - TOW Phoebe's Cookies

29 March 2012

Synopsis: Phoebe and Monica try to work out the recipe for Phoebe’s Grandma’s cookies, Chandler embarrasses himself in front of Monica’s Dad and Rachel teaches Joey to sail.

The Good: The plots are ok as ideas; they all fit the characters well. Ross pops up in all three plots to deliver some average jokes.

The Bad: There is nothing witty here. The Chandler plot might have been really funny if we had seen the story with Jack Gellar rather than just heard about it afterwards. The other friends just mock Chandler with simple one-liners, which could have been so much funnier. Joey and Rachel go through such a basic story with no subtlety.

Best Line: (J) “You won’t boss me around anymore?”
(Ra) “I won’t boss you around.”
(J) “And you’ll be nice?”
(Ra) “And I’ll be nice.”
(J) “And you’ll be topless?”
(Ra) “And…Joey!”
(J) “Do you want me to learn?”

Best Friend: Ross
