The One Where the Stripper Cries
15 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Finally after a few bad episodes we get another good one!

Rachel organizes a very boring party for Phoebe. But luckily Phoebe is not one of those who believes that being adult means to never have fun. So we get a hilarious storyline with Danny DeVito as a stripper! And it is interesting to see Phoebe in this episode. It is basically her new ruined character fighting vs. the old Phoebe that I loved. First she is nasty to him, saying that he is too old, but then not only does she suggest to him to start teaching stripping so that he can pass on what he loves, but that he should also finish that dancing of his and she seems to really have fun while he does it! now this is Phoebe!

It is also great to see their memories from the college party when Rachel and Monica came as well. Chandler hitting on Rachel was great, and when he kisses her he tells her that he is in college and in a band and it is enough for her. And we also find out that Ross's first kiss with Rachel was in reality a kiss with Monica (hich was her first kiss). Great idea!
