Amy is back!
30 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Monica asks Rachel to write a letter of recommendation to the adoption agency for her and Chandler. Joey feels rejected that Monica didn't ask him to write a letter, but Monica explain that she and Chandler don't think Joey is good with words. Since Joey stays insisting, they decide to let Joey write a letter, but they are apprehensive with their choice. Joey uses the thesaurus in every word of his letter to impress Monica and Chandler with his vocabulary, but the letter ends up with no sense at all.

Phoebe is celebrating her fist Anniversary with Mike, and they go to a Knicks Game to enjoy the day. Phoebe does not approve a guy who proposed to his girlfriend on the scoreboard,saying that she finds that attitude tacky and impersonal, but she notices that after she said that, Mike runs away. She sees that he wanted to propose to her on that way, and feels like she ruined Mike's wish to propose to her, since she already said ''no'' to him in Barbados.

Amy, Rachel's sister, tells Rachel that she has plans to marry Myron, her ex boyfriend's father. The problem is that Amy only talks about Myron's possessions,showing that she totally doesn't care about him. Rachel tries to help Amy to find the right way in her life, and when Amy gives the idea to take care of Emma, Rachel thinks it is a good start. Ross is against the idea, and when Amy brings Emma with her ears pierced, Rachel and Ross stay angry with Amy and finding her irresponsible.

(Until now I don't see what is the big deal to have the ears pierced as a baby..I had mine..)
