Goofs

When Ross is talking about how he "really found his sound" when he played the keyboard during college, Monica laughs and spills her drink. She then puts her drink on the coffee table and wipes her mouth and says some dialogue, the shot then cuts to Phoebe, but Monica is seen in the foreground putting down her drink a second time.

The One With Ross's Music, It's Terrible...
28 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so funny. I love the Joey/Chandler relationship, and it becomes really real in this episode. The audience goes through something we've never been through before, kind of betrayal, and anger towards the one who betrayed you.

In this episode, Joey goes on a date with someone who isn't his girlfriend. Chandler accidentally sees Joey's girlfriend, Kathy, naked and he's being tortured, because he thinks she likes him too. Eventually, Chandler and Kathy kiss. Feeling guilty, Chandler buys lots of furniture and appliances for Joey, but it turns out that Joey hadn't lost interest in Kathy. Kathy breaks up with Joey and Chandler finds the courage to tell him about their kiss. Joey feels betrayed, obviously. Meanwhile, Phoebe finds out that Ross played keyboard in college and insists on hearing some of his songs. They're terrible and everyone except Phoebe and Ross can tell. Phoebe convinces him to play at Central Perk, but it just makes everyone leave the café.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Freaking Ridonkulous.
