"Friends: The One with Ross's Inappropriate Song
8 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a good episode. I loved the story of Emma laughing. It is just so funny that she laughs to this song. And having Ross and Rachel rapping how they like big butts was great as well

The story of the videotape was pretty cool too. I liked how Joey threw both Chandler and Monica on the floor so that they don't see what they thought was Monica in action. Was also happy that Richard deleted the video

And the best part was Phoebe meeting Mike's parents. Was pretty funny how she was trying to be like them with her clothes and accent. And the still let the Phoebe out with punching Mike's dad and telling them about a pimp spitting in her mouth. Also great that she threw up in their closet. Serves them right for feeding meat to a vegetarian
