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

This is a pretty good episode. We get to see Chandler "bonding" with Mr. Geller. Probably a bit more than he wished to. This is actually done in a pretty funny way

Really good is also the part where Phoebe and Monica are trying to some up with the recipe that Phoebe inherited from her grandmother. It ends very funny. And I also like how Phoebe believes that her grandmother is in hell. This is a pretty original way of thinking

Rachel teaching Joey how to sail and being mean like her dad is a good idea as well. I almost feel bad for Joey when she yells at him because he is so bad at sailing
