It's New Year's day!
25 June 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

This episode starts with all the Friends kissing each other in New Year's day, a smart idea Joey had to help Monica and Chandler kiss each other without everybody notice.

Ross makes a bet with Chandler that he cannot stay without mock people. Chandler accepts the challenge and tries a lot to not say anything when someone says something dubious.

Ross decides to do something new everyday, so he buys a leather pants to use in a date.

Joey wants to learn how to play the guitar and Phoebe tells him that she can give him classes. But Phoebe has a strange way to teach, not giving the proper names for the notes and forbidding Joey to touch the guitar,so Joey prefers to find another teacher, letting Phoebe upset.

Rachel listens Monica and Chandler's sensual chat on the telephone and discovers that they are having an affair.
