Storyline

Ross freaks out when Joey tells him that he is in love with Rachel because Ross is afraid that they will get married and raise his kid together. Phoebe dates a guy called Don, who she thinks is Monica's soul-mate and introduces Don to Monica to see what will happen. Monica and Don get along perfectly. Ross goes to tell Joey that he doesn't hate him and Joey promises to never act on his feelings for Rachel because he won't jeopardize his friendship to Ross. But when Ross realizes that Joey really is in love for the first time he tells Joey to tell Rachel. When Joey tells Rachel it is clear that she doesn't feel the same way about Joey and they both start crying. Written by Anonymous

Not the funniest
2 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

This episode has two story lines: one light and one heavy.

The "lighter" storyline involves Phoebe believing, to Chandler's dismay, that she has found Monica's soul-mate. This is a fun idea, with some solid laughs, but not an abundance.

The "heavier" storyline involves Joey first telling Ross that he's in love with Rachel. This then leads into a heavy scene with Ross and Joey discussing this, with a weak running joke about this weird green drink they are having. Then Joey tells Rachel how he feels, more heaviness, few laughs.

One of the least funny episodes.
