Another episode with flashbacks. And they were boring flashbacks, so it was a pretty dull episode. But what infuriates me about this episode is how unsupportive their "friends" are of their decision to buy a house and move on with their lives. They're getting a baby, and they want to raise it in a house. That's a pretty realistic dream, and Monica and Chandler should be excited to share it with everyone. Instead, they're scared to tell them, and rightly so because their "friends" end up crapping all over their exciting news. And then when Monica and Chandler describe the vision they have for their children, they're mocked and ridiculed. Ross says, "So you want to buy a house in the 50s." These people are 35 years old. They're not in high school anymore. This whole "being afraid of change" thing is ridiculously immature. They should be excited that their friends are buying a house. That is a huge life change. And they're only moving 45 minutes away. It's not like they're moving to North Korea. Also, it doesn't make sense that they would object so firmly to Monica and Chandler moving less than an hour away, but then immediately be supportive of Rachel moving to Paris (with the exception of Joey because he is a child). This episode is just tough to watch because it is another demonstration of how these mid-30-year-olds act like teenagers.
