Episode cast overview:
Monica Geller (as Courteney Cox Arquette)
Joey Tribbiani (as Matt Le Blanc)


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 with Rachel's Big Kiss
1 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

My favorite part in this episode is how Chandler got a James Bond tuxedo. And how Ross got a Batman tux and Chandler was upset because Batman is so much cooler (which I totally disagree with). It was very funny how Monica tried to convince him otherwise. And especially funny was the end when he finally got a celebrity tuxedo and it ended up being Diane Keaton's

The story about Rachel's big kiss was pretty fun as well. Again, I disagree with Phoebe that Rachel getting drunk and marry in Vegas was less wild because it was with Ross. Come on, it is still a crazy thing to do!

And Joey trying to adjust Monica's wedding so that his parents get to see his part in the show was pretty good too
