She is supposed to learn financial responsibility from the only daughter dad is proud of but makes a terrible start: shopping on dad's credit cards illegally with the numbers she memorized.

The One with Rachel's Sister
17 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In this episode we get to know Rachel's sister Jill. Her coming is almost like a flashback of Rachel joining the group. While Jill didn't run away from her wedding, she is a spoiled girl that has trouble resisting buying clothes. And it is funny how Rachel almost convinces her to date Ross while there was no danger first since she saw him as a geek. I love Rachel's reaction when Phoebe first tells about her suspicions

Monica being sick and hitting on Chandler was pretty funny. Courtney Cox did a good job playing the sick Monica, she sure made me laugh a lot
