The one Monica discovers that Ross was her first kiss!
14 May 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Joey is gonna be a celebrity guest on a game show called PYRAMID, one of Ross' and Monica's favorite game shows of all. But Joey is very stupid and only brings problems to the guests he pairs with.

Phoebe has a bachelorette party organized by Monica and Rachel, but she stays so upset that she is only going to have tea, that Rachel decides to call a stripper. To Phoebe's disappointment, the stripper is a short middle age and non attractive guy, that makes her laugh instead of stay excited.

Chandler and Ross go to a college alumni reunion, where Ross ask Chandler permission to broke their university pact, a pact where neither Ross or Chandler could never date Missy Goldberg. Chandler allows Ross to break the pact, but in the reunion, while talking to Missy, Ross discovers that Chandler and her dated. When Ross confronts Chandler about what he did and about their pact, Chandler tells him that the only reason he dated Missy was because Ross kissed a girl that he liked, Adrienne.

Other funny revelations from the past are Monica's first kiss with Ross and Rachel kissing Chandler while they were in the college party.
