Storyline

Rachel wants to know all details about Chandler and Monica, Joey paid attention to none, so she's all over Monica at Central Perk and at home, but nothing makes her spill any beans. Ross' ex Emily is going to marry; so he smashes a scone. Chandler and Monica enjoy being a couple at his office party; as his boss Doug and his wife Kara love her, they are invited to play tennis at Doug's place, where Chandler goes to great lengths to let Doug win, despite Monica who is furious he's such a suck-up at work; they get a dinner invitation, where Monica first inspires Chandler not to laugh at Doug's lame joke, then changes her mind. Ross is so frustrated he goes out with... Janice, who still thinks Chandler is in Yemen, and is amazed how well she listens, but all his wining is too much even for her. When Ross apologizes for having gone out with his ex, Chandler cleverly jumps at the chance to set the precedent for forgiving a friend going out with a girl close to a friend, such as a relative.

The One with Chandler's Work Laugh
14 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

What makes this episode alright is the great idea of Ross hooking up with Janice. This was awesome and so incredibly funny. And it is great how it ends. The conversation when she breaks up with him is hilarious. Ross realizing that he is to whiny for Janice is a great scene and he looks pretty funny in it. I also loved how she gets to joey and tells him that it is 2 out of 3 now

The whole Janice story also lead to this great ending scene where Chandler realizes that Ross may not be happy about him dating Monica and tries to make it look as if he is not happy with Ross dating Janice but forgave him

I won't say much about the chandler and Monica story. Monica was her annoying shrill self and all I want to say to Chandler is "run away from that witch". I did like Doug's wife though, she seems like the female version of him when she slapped chandler on the butt
