Storyline

Phoebe dates an East European UN diplomat Sergei and asks Monica to join them at a restaurant to keep his translator company as Sergei cannot speak Enlgish. When Ross brings a picnic to Rachel's office, Rachel becomes fed up with Ross's neediness and suggests they take a break. Ross seeks comfort in the bar where Joey and Chandler are trying to impress Chloe, the copy-girl they both have a crush on. Ross and Rachel are trying to make up on the phone when Ross hears Mark, who insisted he come over. Mark, knowing Rachel is on the phone with Ross, makes his voice audible to him so Ross assumes the worst and hangs up on Rachel. He then has one too many beers and sleeps with Chloe.

The One Where Ross and Rachel Take a Break
2 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I liked the scenes of Phoebe on the date with the diplomat. There were lots of funny moments there. Starting with his translator ruining their romantic moment, also the times when Phoebe was trying to get his attention while he was talking to Monica and especially when the translator left and they tried to communicate without him. Monica was kind of a selfish friend this time. Phoebe asked her to do a favor and she just ruined it all. But I am thankful for this, because this made the story funnier

Speaking of selfish. Rachel was unbearable this time. Yes, Rachel, it is indeed just a job. When your job ruins your relationship you need to think how to handle it better. Otherwise it just shows your priorities and how little you care about your partner. Ross never seems to have no time and his job is actually important. glad that at the end she at least started to recognize it

The girl from the copy shop was kind of irritating. I don't think I liked the acting, otherwise she wouldn't be that bad
