When Monica and Chandler are discussing the date he had with Ginger, when he says, "She's great looking," two stage lights are visible in the background. This mistake is visible for a long period of time, where it's slightly visible, shown in shadows, and largely visible as Chandler and Monica are talking. See more »

Phoebe was once in a duo
1 January 2015 | by (Nigeria) – See all my reviews

Rachel was justified at being angry with Ross for falling asleep; he was the one who insisted on going with her, just so Mark wouldn't accompany her. I've never really approved of Rachel and Ross as a couple any way; Ross is far too whiny, insecure and unreasonable and considering Rachel finally found her niche in Bloomingdale's after putting her hated waitress job behind her, he should not put belittle her interest in her job or the fashion lecture. Not everyone's a dinosaur intellectual Ross! The plot about Phoebe and her ex partner was interesting. Anyone would be hurt if their singing partner left them to move on to something better but I imagine Phoebe was also angry because her partner was the better singer hence she got less appreciative fans after her departure. The leg burning was NOT funny and I can't believe Joey did such a thing to Ginger and thought at some level she would find it funny.
