Even accommodating gentleman Chandler loses it when he finds out Eddie has been sneaking in his bedroom to watch him sleep. When the girls read a pseudo-poetical hardcore feminist bestseller, it quickly stirs trouble between Rachel and Ross and amongst the three girls. Now Joey has lost his job, his two-envelope Visa-bill leaves him no other choice then to audition for a measly part beneath a former soap star's dignity and standing by as unpaid stuff is carried off, except a porcelain dog which Ross ransoms after regretting having told Joey to do anything for material security, as he would. Since Eddie simply forgets his move marching orders, Chandler first spends a night at Monica's but then finds the perfect way to solve both his and Joey's problem. Written by KGF Vissers

Another Excellent Episode
11 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's a shame we say goodbye to Adam Goldberg as he has been brilliant, but who didn't want Joey and Chandler living side by side again?? Plot In A Paragraph: Chandler is disturbed when he finds Eddie watching him sleep, so he demands he moves out. Eddie doesn't seem to take that or several other hints, meanwhile Joey is struggling with bills now he has lost his 'Days Of Our Lives' job, and is refusing to audition for roles of lesser quality, and the girls all become addicted to an empowering book.

I love this episode, the girls storyline slightly lets it down, but that is more than made up for by Matthew Perry, Matt Le Blanc and Adam Goldberg.
