The One with Ross's Sandwich
13 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode wins thanks to the Ross's sandwich story. It is just absolutely perfect. Once again I need to applaud David Schwimmer's acting skills. And it is also very well written, I really wonder what was on that note. And him being so proud about being called Mental is just too cute. The conversation that he had with the co worker that ate his sandwich is great too, always makes me laugh when he gets upset over his sandwich being thrown away and you can hear him yell all the way on the street

It is also pretty fun how Phoebe and Rachel take the class together. Phoebe is being a bit annoying as such a goody goody but thanks to it one gets lots of laughs when Ravhel compares Jane Eyre to Robocop
