Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When Rachel tells Danny that she's going to a Regatta Gala, Danny asks her if she sails. She says no, but later in the series, Rachel teaches Joey to sail when he wins a sail boat at an auction, saying that her dad used to take her sailing all the time.See more »
Rachel:Well, what kind of a regatta gala starts at night?
Monica:The fake kind.

The One Where Ross Moves In, 12 August 2011
Author: ComedyFan2010 from Canada

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This episode was actually pretty good. I really liked the Rachel and Danny story where she was trying to make it some sort of a game where she stays in control. It was especially funny because Monica even thought that this is crazy.

I also liked to see the story of Ross becoming roommates with Joey and Chandler. I felt pretty bad for him when they go to look for the apartment that is so bad and the guys are obviously trying to get rid of him which he knew. But then they feel bad about it and give him that funny reference that he is a pimp. Very sweet!

The story of Phoebe and Larry was not bad either. What I actually liked the most is how they showed Phoebe liking all those things about him that the audience just didn't see.
