The One the Morning After
3 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I am really not a big fan of this story or of Rachel in this situation and yet I find this episode to be great. Both the writing and the acting is on a very high level.

During Rachel and Ross's break up we do get to laugh a bit in scenes when Chloe is still in the house when Rachel comes over, when Ross follows the trail or when Rachel orders pizza. But at the same time we get a very sad and dramatic break up with a great dialogue and wonderful performance by both Jennifer Aniston and David Swimmer.

And I absolutely love the rest of the gang being locked in a room listening to it all. Just sitting there hungry eating wax. And Joey talking about his new walk was hilarious
