The One Where Monica and Richard Are Just Friends
27 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The best part of this episode is about the guy Phoebe is dating who doesn't wear underwear and has everyone see his stuff through his shorts. It isn't so much the story as the great reactions of all the characters towards it and the awesome word play at the end when Phoebe tries to break up with him. And Gunther gets a great line that makes everyone laugh J

oey and Rachel exchanging books is also a good one. Joey is very cute. I loved the scene where he accidentally tells Rachel the end of Shining and they start spoiling the books to each other.

The story of Monica and Richard I could live without. I didn't find it funny nor did I care for them getting together to find it interesting
