Rachel bumps into her old friend Melissa from college who she once kissed after drinking too much sangria. Monica has the seating chart for the wedding finished and Chandler is really sad that only about 10 guests are from his side. Chandler goes to see Rachel at Ralph Lauren's to choose a tux and picks the tux that Pierce Brosnan wore once and sent back. Chandler thinks he is the coolest until he finds out that Ross picked the tux worn by Val Kilmer in Batman. Phoebe doesn't believe Rachel that she made out with Melissa so she goes to dinner with them to ask Melissa about it. But unfortunately for Rachel, Melissa can't remember anything. To prove to Phoebe that she is wild Rachel kisses Melissa again and Melissa admits being in love with Rachel and remembering the kiss all the time. It turns out that Ross' tux was worn by Val Kilmer but not in Batman. Chandler finds a new tux - which was worn by Diane Keaton. Written by Anonymous

The one Rachel had a lesbian affair
13 April 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Rachel sees Melissa Worbert,an ex colleague of the university times, in Central Perk after a long time. Melissa is a ''rich daddy's girl'' as Rachel used to be, but more then that, she is the girl that Rachel kissed in the past. Joey stays horny thinking on them kissing, but Phoebe doesn't believe that Rachel is capable of something that wild. To prove that she is not vanilla, Rachel invites Phoebe to dinner with her and Melissa, because in this way, Phoebe will listen to their chat. Melissa, however, tells Rachel that she doesn't remember the night they kissed.

Rachel helps Chandler and Ross to find their tuxedos. Chandler is excited that he is going to use the same tux that the actor who played 007, but Ross takes Batman's tux, making Chandler angry, since he wanted his tux to be the only one special.

Joey invites his parents to Monica's and Chandler's wedding, what makes Monica stays worried,since there aren't much places available, not to mention that she will need to order an extra amount food.
