Did You Know?


Ross tells the girl who borrowed his book that he "skipped the fourth grade". All through the series it is clearly established that he is a year older / one grade older than Monica and Rachel (especially in The One With All The Thanksgivings) ... This could have also been intended as another lame attempt at flirting though. See more »


When Rachel and Phoebe tell Joey that Erin isn't interested in him, the beer bottle in his right hand appears/disappears between shots. See more »


Dr. Ross Geller: Hi, I was wondering, is it possible to increase security in the Paleontology section? I wrote a book that's up there and instead of reading it people are... well, they're rolling around in front of it.

The One with Ross' Library Book
20 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The greatest thing about this episode is that we get to see Janice again, and she is just great! I find it funny how Monica who has no problem to bully people that are close to her doesn't have the strength to say no to someone who invited herself to her wedding. Thats what people like Monica are like: they bully the ones that care about them but are scared of people who will stand up to them.

I always have to laugh at the part where Janice says "So you think of me as family?" She is so good! I actually feel sad that they found a way to uninvite her. Would love to see her singing at their wedding!

Ross protecting the paleontology section at the library was pretty funny as well. Especially when the librarian thinks that Ross is inviting him there
