The One After Joey and Rachel Kiss
12 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A great beginning of a new season. I absolutely love the scene where Phoebe, Chandler and Monica listen to the couples through the wall. Especially when Monica realizes that Ross is her brother. Or when Ross comes into their room and they pretend to be hugging hotel good bye, which Ross then does as well!

It is also great how Ross knocks on Rachel's door and Joey tries to act non chalant. As well as when the other three pull him over through the door

It is also funny how Rachel believes that Joey told it to Ross when she talks to him on the plane

The whole idea of Mike having a girlfriend and Phoebe at the end breaking up with her was pretty good as well

The story with Monica's hair shows once again how bland as a group they are and that they disapprove of every small look change that isn't considered to be a norm. But this time it is done in a funny way

And we get a very dramatic episode ending. So all in all the episode is full of original and funny jokes
