Storyline

Phoebe gives Chandler and Monica a late wedding present: the game Ms Pac-Man. Chandler plays it all day long to be better than Monica and Phoebe. Rachel misses dressing up for romantic dates so Joey promises to take her out. They have a wonderfully romantic date pretending they're not roommates and they get to know each other a whole new level. Monica and Phoebe have to try to beat Chandler's top scores because Ben is coming over to play and Chandler put dirty words as names for the top scores. Joey has a crush on Rachel and feels weird about it. Written by Anonymous

The One Where Joey Dates Rachel
3 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a very good episode. The story about the game machine is already pretty good. It just seems weird when Chandler first says that a 7 year old would not understand the words he used for high scores and yet a few minutes later says that by that time he should have seen orgies. But this isn't such a big deal. And the scene where Ben comes in and Phoebe probably yells out every single swear word that exists makes me laugh until I get tears every time I watch it

The date of Joey and Rachel is pretty cute. I like how they are showing each other their moves, and Rachel's are so simple and yet successful

The story about Ross is pretty small but so well done. Of course it is mainly because of David Schwimmer's acting, but I also like the solution they came up with
