Episode cast overview:
Monica Geller (as Courteney Cox Arquette)
Joey Tribbiani (as Matt Le Blanc)
the Fireman (as Jason Winston George)


In the beginning, the 6 friends plus Tag are sitting on the roof looking for comets. Later, everyone goes inside except for Ross and Joey, who takes the tube that was holding the door open off. Ross and Joey are then locked on the roof until they get the idea to go down the fire escape. Phoebe's fire alarm keeps beeping and it won't stop. She eventually breaks the fire alarm and throws it down the trash chute. A fireman returns the fire alarm to Phoebe, who can't stop the fire alarm because the reset button broke off. Monica and Chandler can't sleep, so Chandler insists on having sex. Rachel realized that she forgets to mail something out at work, so she and Tag stop by the office. Rachel says she left them on Tag's desk, but she finds them on her own desk. She doesn't want to be proved wrong, so she makes Tag go check the copy room and then Rachel drops the papers in Tags desk. Written by rsuddhi93

The one the friends go to the roof to see the comet!
17 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

The Friends are trying to see a comet that Ross wants to show them. (The Bapstein-King) Everybody is annoyed, specially because they are almost 2 hours waiting for the comet and the night is very cold. One by one, they all go away, letting only Joey and Ross alone. Joey takes the pipe that was holding the door open to use as binoculars, and now they will need to use the fire scape to get off the roof. None of them wants to go first.

Chandler cannot sleep and tries to read a boring book and to drink hot milk, but nothing works. Monica wakes up and they switch of who wakes up and who sleeps. (When Chandler sleeps, Monica wakes, and vice versa)

Phoebe is stressed with the noise of her fire alarm, that stays beeping all the time, until she destroys him.

Rachel is worried that Tag didn't send some contracts she gave him to be sent in the day, and they go to their office to check if they are there yet or not.
