The One Where Rachel Comes Back From Greece...
31 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I really love this episode. It's really funny. It's one of my all-time favorite episodes. But then again, they're pretty all my favorite episodes.

In this episode, Rachel comes home from Greece, you know, after Ross left her at the airport all alone. He was meant to go with her, but Emily showed up, so of course he chased after her. Rachel says that she had a wonderful trip. With nice people, nice hotel and that she really had a great time. But as soon as Ross leaves she starts complaining about how terrible it was. The fact that she stayed in the Honeymoon Suite without Ross. People asking her why she was crying, whilst calling her Mrs Gellar. Etc. Ross keeps confusing Emily and Rachel's names up, just like at the wedding. And as I'm sure you can guess, that's not going very well for him. Monica and Chandler are still keeping their relationship a secret, but when Chandler accidentally kisses Monica at the breakfast table, he covers his tracks by kissing Phoebe and Rachel as well. He does this throughout the episode, so he doesn't blow their cover. Phoebe feels very left out because everyone went to London without her, whilst she was at home, pregnant. She gets very upset when anyone mentions London. She even draws herself in one of Monica's photos, to make it look like she was there. At the end of the episode, the gang decides to take a trip to Atlantic City, to make it up to her. But just before they were about to leave, Phoebe's water breaks. She still insists on going and obviously they don't.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
