Storyline

Joey calls Phoebe; refusing to take Chandler's apologies for not believing in his film, he barks for him to not come over- he's working as a gladiator in armor in a Vegas casino. Monica tells Phoebe, who may not tell Chandler, that she met and lunched with Richard, but felt nothing. Monica decides to give Chandler one anniversary present a day early: tickets for Las Vegas; Phoebe insists everyone goes, to make up for her missing London. Ross and Rachel have previous engagements but decide to follow the next day. As Phoebe put the idea in her head, Rach tests out walking around alone and naked; Ross sees her and comes over, thinking it was a sexual invitation; this misunderstanding escalates on the plane to embarrassing each-other in outrageous ways. In Vegas, Joey must admit he's just earning cash while the movie is delayed lacking funds. Chandler and Monica fight whether she may see Richard again. Joey loses his only tip in one hand, but thinks he'll make a fortune because he found ... Written by KGF Vissers

The One in Vegas: Part 1
16 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It is great to see the friends going on another trip. And it is even greater to see how Phoebe invited herself to go with Monica and Chandler! She is still upset about not being in London, I am glad the writers brought it into the story. It makes it even funnier. Like when she was making a list of Vegas vs. London to see which trip is better

The story on how Monica saw Richard is alright. I don't agree with Chandler who forbade her to see Richard, people doing it in relationships deserve to be dumped. But it is interesting that she had an issue with it. She has no problem to control him

Loved the story of Rachel trying to be naked in the apartment and Ross thinking that it is an invitation to "the physical act of love". He was hilarious when he came over and started throwing off his shoes!
