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 »

The One Where Monica And Chandler Move In Together...
31 October 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so good. It's one of my favorite episodes. Mainly because Rachel is quite stupid in it.

In this episode, Monica and Chandler decide it's time for them to move in together. They mean, in Monica's apartment, just them, no one else. When they tell Rachel, she automatically assumes that they are all going to be living there. I feel bad for her, because she didn't even figure it out. Monica tries to work up the courage to tell Rachel how it's actually going to work. And when she does, Monica is crushed that Rachel isn't more upset. Monica was expecting tears and hugs and lots of things like that. But Rachel was quite fine. Joey, on the other hand, was deeply crushed. He was so sad. But Rachel wasn't sad because she doesn't think it will actually happen, and that they'll back out. When Monica assures her that they will be moving in together, Rachel gets upset and starts crying. Ross decides to get the annulment because people think he's still in love with Rachel. When he goes to get their marriage annulled, he finds out that Rachel needs to be there, to sign papers. Of course she would. I can't believe she was stupid enough to believe that Ross got it on his own. So, he needs to tell her the truth. When he goes to tell her, Rachel is upset, so instead of telling her, Ross just gives her a hug instead.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
