Chandler meets Ginger and goes out with her. Joey used to date Ginger but accidentally threw her artificial leg into a fire and ran away. Phoebe and Leslie are back together playing music. Ross goes to a fashion seminar with Rachel so she won't go with Mark. They fight because Ross was so bored he fell asleep.

The One with Phoebe's Ex-Partner
2 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The title story of this episode is pretty boring. Although the good part of it is the Smelly Cat litter commercial, this one turned out kind of funny

I did like the story about the girl with the artificial leg funny. I love the part where Joey tells how he accidentally burned it down and after that just ran through the woods with no socks on. Matt LeBlanc was just great at telling this story. And the ending is pretty good too. Chandler has overcome the fact that the leg was bothering him but who knew that he will be left for his nubbin? The irony!

And we have more development of the conflict between Rachel and Ross. David Schwimmer was very funny at the "Jurrasic Parka" part. And while Ross sure is unreasonable with his jealousy, Rachel is being pretty annoying. Couldn't she just laugh off that Ross fell asleep? Nah, she is too stuck up for it. And while I see what they were doing when she was saying how boring his job for her, I couldn't help but thinking: "Seriously? You are comparing spectacular historical evidence to fashion?" Puuuuhleeze
