After Rachel has finally told Ross that she lost Marcel and the shot zooms out to see Marcel on the balcony, we return to the inside of the apartment. In one shot we can see the wine that Ross opened and re-corked a few moments ago. However the shot now shows the wine as if it had never been opened. Then a few shots later the bottle of wine has completely disappeared from the table. See more »


Joey Tribbiani: You're a monkey lost in the city. Where would you go?
Chandler Bing: Well, he's new in town, so he would first go to the touristy places. Okay, I'll go to Cats, you go to the Russian Tea Room.

The One Where the Monkey Gets Away
11 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One of the things that by now got old is Ross talking about his monkey and everyone act as if he is talking about his penis. Yeah, we got the joke. It was funny the first time, now after it was repeated over and over again it got boring.

I really liked how Ross was mad at Rachel for losing the monkey. Mainly because he is so amusing when angry. David Schwimmer is awesome!

Funny is also the part where the animal control woman turns out to be an old classmate of Rachel and Monica who is still mad at them, especially Rachel since Monica was fat and had her own problems

And a great ending with Barry coming in and saying he is still in love with Rachel.
