But when Ross realizes that she is going to party a lot and probably meet other guys he freaks out.

Did You Know?


Chandler mentions that the guy that Rachel will take to a charityball have to have at least 50 dollars (to rent a tuxedo) And Joey says "Oh, so close". He refers to that he doesn't have 50 dollars. When Matt LeBlanc got cast for the role of Joey, he only had 10 dollars to his name. See more »


While Ross is dancing with Elizabeth you can see where set ends above the various palm trees. The sky is blue but cameras and lights are visible just above the sky. However, the two are dancing at the MTV beach house. The scene behind them is intended to be an obvious painted set, not an actual beach. Cameras and lights are to be expected, since this is a televised event. Any equipment visible can be attributed to "MTV's" own gear for the shoot. See more »


Ross: [about Elizabeth's spring break] What if she goes down there and sleeps with a bunch of guys?

The One with Joey's Fridge
19 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I know that a lot of people are annoyed with Joey's fridge story, but I found it pretty funny. It made me laugh a lot. Especially when he was comparing to Chandler the fridge story to a situation if they had a child that would die and he would need to buy a new one. Or how he even tried to make Elizabeth pay for it. I must say I was surprised Chandler didn't want to give him money. Not because I think he owed him that but because he always wanted to help him financially

The story of Phoebe and Mondler starting a kind of "competition" on whose guy Rachel will take to the charity event was kind of amusing as well. Especially when they all meet at the coffee place
