The One with Ross' Grant
14 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I really like the part of the episode in which Joey asks Chandler to look at his video and he doesn't and lies to Joey about it. Pretty bad from Chandler but luckily Joey figures it out. And the reason he knew it is this great commercial of lipstick for man that Joey filmed for Japan! It was also awesome when Chandler was made to put it on

Pretty good is also the story of Ross who tries to get his grant from Charlie's ex. Very funny especially at the end when they end up going back together. David Schwimmer looks very funny in it

And the picture of Phoebe that Monica and Rachel are fighting about...yeah, I would be scared to have it in my house too, so I don't blame Joey!
