The One Where Rachel Quits
13 May 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Ross breaks a little girl's leg who was selling cookies by mistake and feels guilty about it. He tries to help her selling cookies, in order to win a place at the space camp, her dream, but the problem is that he needs to sell more then 400 boxes to be near the last champion!

Rachel is working as a waitress for almost 3 years. Tired of receiving instructions from Gunther, she decides to quit her job, to try to do something she really likes and cares about.

Phoebe tries to convince Joey to stop working with Christimas Trees,since she feels sorry for the poor trees being "killed" only because of this date.
