Episode 4 - TOW Rachel's Assistant

29 March 2012

Synopsis: Rachel hires good looking, young Tag as her assistant; Joey rejoins Days of Our Lives and Monica, Ross and Chandler share embarrassing stories.

The Good: Rachel hiring Tag matches her character and she plays her crush well. Joey and Rachel are funny trying to one-up each others stories. The secret sharing plot starts in a fun place.

The Bad: But it is a really thin plot, not funny and out of character for them to all be so mean to each other. Their reactions are so exaggerated for secrets which aren’t very shocking. The Joey plot is a bit nothingy because he gets back on the show in a meaningless role.

Best Line: (Ro) “In college, Chandler got drunk and slept with the lady who cleaned our dorms.”
(M) Laughs
(C) “That was you.”
(M) Laughs.
(Ro) “Whatever dude, you kissed a guy.”

Best Friend: Rachel
