The One Where Chandler And Monica Can't Decide What To Do With Their Spear Bedroom...
28 January 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It is just so funny.

In this episode, there are two main plot points. One is that Ross is in serious denial about Rachel. He's trying to convince himself that he's not in love with her, which he totally is. Ross still hasn't told Rachel that they're still married. He's so stupid. How did he ever think that he could get an annulment without her being there? How dumb is he? I mean, that's like going and changing someone else's name without them being there. Come on, man. Phoebe's trying to convince him that he still loves Rachel and that's why he won't tell her about them still being married. Meanwhile, Chandler and Monica are trying to decide what to do with Rachel's old room, now that she's moved into Chandler's old room, in Joey's apartment. Monica wants the room to be an elegant guest room and Chandler wants it to be a game room. I'd totally go with the game room.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
