Phoebe claims that she and Gary are the hotter couple than Monica and Chandler. Monica wants to prove her wrong by having more sex with Chandler. Rachel has an interview for a job at Ralph Lauren. Joey flirts across the street with a girl in Ross' building but he can't find her apartment. Rachel screws up her interview by mistakenly kissing the guy doing the interview. Joey can't find the girl but Ross meets her and asks her out. Rachel gets the job despite her inappropriate behaviour. Monica is so obsessed about being the hotter couple because she is afraid they're past the phase where they're all over each other. Chandler thinks the phase they're in now is much more exciting because they actually have a real relationship and it's working out perfectly. Written by Anonymous

The One with Rachel's Inadvertent Kiss
14 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a hilarious episode. I really like Rachel's story. Seeing her having all those mishaps on her interviews was very amusing. The part with kissing, when she thought that Mr. Zelner wants to kiss her and when she was trying to convince him to take her. I must say I also really liked Steve Ireland, the guy that plays Mr. Zelner

The story of Monica being upset that her and Chandler are not in the beginning of the relationship and trying to compete with Phoebe and Gary for being the hot couple. Like how she was telling them everything and even following Chandler to the men's bathroom!

The story with Joey trying to find the girl in Ross's building but always ending up at Ross's apartment is well done as well. "I can't believe I almost lost another girl because of counting". I love that quote!

And Ross's "watching TV" bit was pretty cool as well. He is such a nerd, I love him for it
