Did You Know?


In this episode it's revealed that Monica made a tape with Richard and Chandler says 'listen to the judgement from the porn star!' However in the fifth season Monica and Chandler get caught with a video camera set up, and in the third season Monica tells the group that she made a tape with Pete. Meaning she filmed herself during all three major relationships of the series. See more »


When Joey and Chandler are watching the sex tape from Richard's apartment, it starts off as a football match - which is visible when the camera is pointing towards tot he TV. When the video "switches" to Richard and the other girl having sex and the camera angle switches to looking towards the TV, the TV is blank. Obviously they won't show a sex tape in Friends, but you would think they would avoid showing a blank TV screen. See more »

The One Where Phoebe Meets Mike's Parents...
1 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so funny. My favorite "segment" of the episode is the way Phoebe acts around Mike's parents.

In this episode, Phoebe meets Mike's parents, but is very nervous. She puts on an accent and pretends to be "upscale". Mike's parents don't approve but Mike doesn't care because he loves Phoebe. Awww! Meanwhile, Ross sings Baby Got Back to Emma to make her giggle and smile, but when Rachel finds out, she is furious. Until she herself sings the song to make Emma laugh. And whilst in Richard's apartment, because he's selling it, Joey and Chandler find a tape marked Monica, and they think it's a sex tape. When they watch it, and Monica walks in, they discover that it's not Monica, and that Richard had taped over her.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Amazing.
