Storyline

Rachel and Monica can't stand the apartment anymore and want to trade it for basketball season tickets. Emily leaves again for London and Ross wants to ask her to move to New York. Chandler and Joey thinks it's outrageous because Ross has only known her for 6 weeks. The guys don't want to give up the apartment but agree to bet with the girls. Phoebe makes up a game no one understands so they cut a deck of cards and the guys win. Ross asks Emily to marry him and she says yes! While Joey and Chandler are at the game the girls move their stuff back into their apartment. Chandler wants to get the girls' apartment back but the girls offer to kiss for one minute in return for the apartment and the deal is settled. Written by Anonymous

Apartment swapping
23 June 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The rush is clearly on for the writers to engineer the Ross/Emily romance to a wedding in time for the end of the series. And much like the story line, the writing is a bit rushed too. However, it is well played out by David Schwimmer and Helen Baxendale.

As with a few episodes towards the end of this series the show seems to break its trend of having three story lines, and sometimes that works and others it doesn't. Perhaps this was due to the fact that Lisa Kudrow was pregnant and couldn't commit to doing as much understandably.

I liked the fact that the girls were trying to win back their apartment, and there was some good comic interplay within this story.

A fun episode.
