Storyline

The morning after Rachel declared they needed a break, she wakes up ready to work on getting back together - and Ross is drunk in bed with Chloe, the copy girl; Joey and Chandler warn him word will follow 'the trail' of women blabbering to Rachel, and at every step he's too late to stop it. Whe she storms in for an endless session of denial there's still love between them, whatever he tries, the other friends don't dare to leave the bedroom where Monica and Phoebe had been waxing.

Touching episode.
18 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, this episode only loses in terms of 'sadness' to the last episode of Friends.

It's an awesome directed episode, where comedy and drama walk together throughout the whole 30 minutes of the show.

Monica, Chandler, Joey and Phoebe are responsible for the comedy in Monica's room, where they ''lock'' themselves, while Ross and Rachel are fighting in the living room. Of course those two are responsible for the drama, really amazingly acted by both the phenomenal actors David and Jennifer. I was shocked with their ability in the 'drama area', because so far in the series they hadn't done so touching and sad scenes like they did in this episode. I've read they cried for real, by the way.

I think I cried I little bit less in this episode than on the last one. Best drama scene (Ross and Rachel breaking up) on the show. That's how powerful and impacting it was.

Definitely 10 out of 10.
