Tag and Rachel break up...
17 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

It's Rachel birthday. She is doing 30 years old and depressed for that fact. The Friends try to cheer Rachel, but they were not very happy in their own 30 year old parties as well, so they understand her. (Joey crying in his 30 year old party was the best!) Rachel didn't reached her goals before her 30's and starts to plan her life, including marriage and kids, now.

She realizes that she should be with the guy she will marry now, if she wants her plans to work out, and since this is not Tag's case (he will turn 25) they break up, ' cause Rachel thinks she needs more then fun.

This episode is full of memories about what the Friends did when they reached their 30's.
