The One with Joey's New Girlfriend
19 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I really liked the Rachel and Ross story where they try to show each other how happy they are in their "new relationships". The guy Rachel dates is quite a character, still in college, steals from her etc. And Ross's "girlfriend" as it turns out just considers him her babysitter! Pretty funny idea. And the way they talk to each other all the time to show off is hilarious. Especially when they do it when the other one isn't around and Monica has to tell them

And it nice to see this kind of a story about Joey and Chandler. A little bit of complication in their perfect friendship that makes us wonder what will happen next
