Did You Know?


Phoebe says that she doesn't know the actual names of the chords, but in other episodes she uses the real names of the chords. For example, in The One With the Baby on the Bus, Phoebe talks to guest star Chrissie Hynde about what chords she knows, and she uses the actual names of the chords when she does this. See more »


Chandler: I can't take it any more! So you win, okay? Pheebs? Flying a jet? Better make it a spaceship so that you can get back to your home planet! And Ross, phone call for you today - Tom Jones, he wants his pants back! And Hornswoggle? What? Are you dating a character from "Fraggle Rock"? Ahh.

The One with All the Resolutions
13 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode we get to see how they follow their resolutions The best one is of course Ross (what a surprise!). His pants are great on their own but it goes further! The whole scene in the bathroom where he tries to put his pants back on is a riot. And Joey's great advices make it even better. The look of him coming out of the bathroom without pants and white paste over his legs is just too good.

Phoebe teaching Joey guitar was great as well. Very good idea, and so Phoebe-like! Matt LeBlanc's acting in this episode is definitely worth mentioning

And of course it is just greatyto see Rachel finding out about Chandler and Monica and how she was struggling wanting to talk to someone. It was a great scene of her and Joey so carefully trying to find out if the other one knows
