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

Goofs

In this episode, Chandler becomes better at a Ms. Pacman game, and his hand is misshapen. Before he reveals that his hand is distorted, he points to the screen, and his hand is just fine. However, after he shows Monica his hand, it won't move no matter what. See more »

Rachel: Finally. I get to see what Joey Tribianni is like on a date. So, you got any moves?
Joey: No. I'm just myself, and if the girl doesn't like that then...
[breaks down laughing]
Joey: I'm sorry, I couldn't even get through that.

The one with PAC MAN!!
16 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Phoebe orders a Ms Pac Man Machine, a big machine that Monica loves and is her favorite game of all time. (After the Vending Machine, of course, lol). Monica, Chandler and Phoebe stay competing to see who is the best in the game, but this brings a lot of little discussions among them, specially because Chandler wrote a lot of cursed words who are now registered in the machine, and Monica doesn't like that because Ben is going to play it.

Ross tells to Rachel and Joey that Professor Newman is retiring, so he will be teaching his advanced class. Everybody is excited for him, but the only problem is that Ross needs to go to Cross Town to give classes to his new class, and this gives him a lot of trouble since he is always arriving late. (The place is very distant!)

Joey asks Rachel for suggestions of good places for a date. Rachel tells him about a lot of places, but Joey notices how much she misses to go on dates. Joey gives her the idea of them going out on a date, and he plans a lot of nice things for them to do together and to make Rachel feel good. The date goes very well and they both liked a lot, but Joey starts to feel different feelings about Rachel.
