Another Classic Episode
11 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Another classic episode of "Friends" which has now returned to form in great style. This is the episode in which Joey and Chandler acquire the leather armchairs in which they spend most of their time living together watching TV. It's also the first appearance of Tom Selleck as Dr Richard Burke Monica's love interest.

Plot In A Paragraph: Feeling flush with money from his 'Days Of Our Lives' gig as Dr Drake Ramorey, Joey splashes out on a big screen TV and two Lazy Boy leather chairs for Chandler and himself. However once they sit down, they never get back up. Meanwhile Monica has a job catering for an old friend of her Mam and Dad Dr Richard Burke (Tom Selleck) and Ross and Rachel struggle to move things to the next level when she keeps getting the giggles.

I love this episode. If I was making a collection of the best episodes, this one would feature on it.
