"The One Where Everyone Finds Out" is classic television!
23 July 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the absolute best episode of Friends there is. It also is one of the best episodes of television I've ever seen!

Summary: Pheobe finds out about Monica and Chandler, so Rachel and Pheobe start messing with them. E.g. Asking them to do Rachel's laundry when they say they're going to "do laundry" which is just so they can sneak off together. Pheobe also pretends to be attracted to Chandler to get them to admit their relationship. In the end they crack and they admit that they're in love. Also in the end Joey is excited that they don't have to keep it a secret anymore but he then gets upset because Ross still doesn't know. But in the end Ross sees them through the window and finds out about them.

Like I said before this is probably one of the best TV episodes I've ever seen! The jokes are amazing, the performances by everyone are amazing especially Lisa Kudrow and Matthew Perry.

Amazingly well written especially great performances when Pheobe finds out through the window across the street.
