The One in Massapequa
3 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Another great episode. Parker, the character played by Alec Baldwin is outrageously hilarious. Thanks to him there were so many great lines! "Concrete miracle" or what Phoebe said about Santa Clause on Prozac, in Disney land, getting laid. I think that is one of my favorite quotes from the show. And Alec Baldwin was absolutely great in it

The story about Ross and Rachel talking about their wedding was pretty good too. I also like how Judy said that they find it marvellous that they are having a child out of wedlock. And Rachel's idea for the wedding was crazy, it is funny how she told Ross that they can't say that he drove in on the Harley because they need to keep it realistic and that after all that she said.
