13 May 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Monica and Richard accidentally meet each other at a video shop(Richard doesn't have his mustache!). They both get really well along, and they decide to go out as a friends. When Monica tries to teach Richard how to cook a Lasagna, they end up having sex.

Phoebe dates an athlete guy who doesn't wear underwear, making Ross and Chandler have funny moments laughing at this. She decides to give him an underwear as a gift present, but she doesn't have much success in her idea.

Joey and Rachel exchange their favorite books. Joey's favorite is ''The Shinning'' and Rachel's ''Little Women''. They want to know which is the best book, but they both enjoy a lot both books.
