Storyline

Rachel claims to be over Ross and Monica sets her up with a date. Rachel doesn't concentrate on her date and gets really drunk because she is upset that Ross and Julie are going to buy a cat together. Her date tells her she needs a "closure" to get over Ross. Rachel then calls Ross and leaves him a message saying she is over him. When Ross hears the message he is taken aback that Rachel has feelings for him and is very confused. Ross refuses to buy a cat and tells Rachel she had no right telling him about her feelings because he was ok before he knew and now he isn't. They argue and kiss - for the first time!

Quotes

Ross: So, do you have any cats that are really old or incredibly sick?
Julie: Ross, I don't want one that's about to die...
Ross: Oh well, see, we should've worked that out before we came down here!
Julie: OK sweetie, I'm gonna narrow it down to this one over here... and this one with the stripes. Okay? You pick.
Ross: Whoa, hey... I... I have to pick?
Julie: Yeah, whichever one you want.
Ross: [Looks back and forth between the cats and scratches his head] Well, I don't know. I mean, it's not that easy to choose, you know... both cats ...

The One Where Ross Finds Out
18 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode it is Ross's turn to find out that Rachel has feelings for him. And it is done in a brilliant way. The date with Michael where she gets drunk is very funny, so is the message she leaves Ross and so is the scene when Ross listens to the message. And after all the fun scenes we also get a dramatic scene of a fight in Central Perk and then a beautiful, romantic moment when Ross comes back and it ends with a passionate kiss.

Besides this I wasn't too impressed with the rest of the episode. Chandler and Monica exercising isn't that great. And this is the first time when Monica's annoying and shrill personality shines through. a little preview to the future where this is all she will ever be.

And Phoebe's story is slightly sexist. What dopes it mean he "made her believe this is a good idea"? For women having casual sex can be a good idea as well, not all are desperate for relationship
