The One Where Rachel Is Late
5 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a very good episode. Rachel being all annoying because of her pregnancy was done so well. Kudos to Jennifer Aniston, she did a great job. She really does come off as annoying and yet one doesn't dislike her. The scene in the beginning when she just comes into the coffee place and the looks she gives everyone were great

I also love how she was trying to convince Ross to sleep with her so that the baby comes out. That scene is absolutely hilarious. Especially when she drops the fork or when she is insulting Ross while trying to make him got to bed with her

And we also got some Joey and Chandler story which I always like
