A Touching Ending To The Episode
11 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Not as great as the last episode, but still enjoyable Plot In A Paragraph: Joey and Chandler fall out over Joeys unhygienic cleaning habits, and Monica and Richard struggle to keep their relationship a secret at Monica's Dad's birthday party.

Although pivotal to the plot, I did not like the Joey and Chandler falling out story, and hated seeing Chandler all sad and alone in the apartment after Joey leaves. A Touching Ending To The Episode as Joey comes back for one more hug from his best friend.

Matthew Perry and Matt Le Blanc both nailed it in this episode, the both absolutely knocked it out of the park. Job well done guys
