Goofs

Right after Ross is talking about who won the Brown Bird cookie sale, Rachel walks into Central Perk and starts talking about her interview. As she is doing so, her jacket sleeve is already off her right arm and she takes her sleeve off of her left arm. In the next shot, she takes off her right sleeve again even though it had already been taken off. See more »

The One Where Rachel Quits
27 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Rachel has been working pretty long as the waitress, so it was a good time to make some changes for the character. It is actually a pretty boring part of the episode. I must say I just liked the irony of the last scene.

The story of Phobe and Christmas trees is pretty silly but very Phoebe-like. And I can somehow understand her, while I do not think that Christmas trees should fulfil their Christmas destiny I always found it sad that nature is being used just for decoration

And the best part is Ross being a Brown Bird. He is too funny in this part and I love it that he became a "Cookie Dude" at NYU.
