Storyline

Chandler and Monica tell everyone they're going to move in together. Rachel is happy because she thinks the three of them will live together. Ross decides to get the annulment because people think he is still in love with Rachel and that's why he doesn't want to get divorced, but he needs Rachel to annul it and thus has to tell her they're still married. Monica tells Rachel that she and Chandler want to live together on their own. Monica is surprised that Rachel doesn't seem upset at all. Rachel isn't upset because she doesn't think they're gonna go through with it but Monica tells her it really is gonna happen and Rachel cries her eyes out. Ross is about to tell Rachel about their marriage, but she is upset and he just hugs Rachel to comfort her instead. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

Rachel says that she and Ross don't need to take a cab from Central Perk because they're "actually just going to walk, because it's right up there at the Angelika." The Angelika is not "up" or within easy walking distance of anywhere Central Perk could be; it is south of the West Village (where Central Perk is), and halfway across Manhattan to boot. See more »

Quotes

Monica: [on Chandler moving in] Have you found a way to tell Joey yet?
Chandler: Np. I keep saying "Joey, I have to..." and then I end with "go to the bathroom". I think he may think I'm sick.
Joey: [enters the apartment] Hey, you feelin' better, man?

The One Where Ross Hugs Rachel
17 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I love the scene where Ross tells Phoebe that he didn't get the annulment. He looks almost crazy in it the way he talks

I also like how Phoebe gets those three girls tell Ross that him having three divorces would not stop them from dating him

And the scene where he talks to his divorce lawyer is perfect. The dialogue is great

The sad thing is that Chandler is now moving in with that witch and the whole Chandler/Joey fun will not appear that often. And in this episode she again confesses that from now on she will control him. I felt bad for Joey but the nicknames that he was inventing for him and Chandler were just great.

And I also felt sorry for Rachel. Both because she now has to move because of someone else's relationship and because her "best friend" is the nasty Monica who even wanted Rachel to feel bad
