"Why don't I remember this dog?!"
31 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

This, much like the Brad Pitt episode earlier in the series is all about a guest star coming in and being the central focus. On this occasion it's Alec Baldwin as Parker, Phoebe's new boyfriend who is so enthusiastic about everything it annoys the other friends.

I liked the Rachel/Ross story line too, with the story of their fake wedding getting more elaborate.

The Monica story line was OK too, made better by some strong lines by recurring guest stars, Elliot Gould and Christina Pickles.

Not the best episode of this 8th series, but still good fun.
