The One with Rachel's Phone Number
9 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I really like the story with Chandler and Joey. It was very funny. Actually serves Chandler right for deceiving his friend like that and not making plans with him. I liked how Joey was sitting outside the door with a baseball bat. And it had lots of great moments, like when Joey talks to Chandler on the phone and hears a man talking in his apartment, how Monica puts cushions on the bed and of course the ending was great

Ross and Mike's evening together was absolutely great. It was also acted out very well, you can feel the awkwardness. And it becomes so hilarious when Mike comes back and also tries to pick up the phone!

And we get some more happening in the complicated Ross and Rachel relationship.

I must also note that Phoebe was dressed so not like her character. I guess they really are showing how she changes from being a fun, original character into a boring relationship woman
