Storyline

Chandler sleeps with Rachel's boss Joanna. Rachel makes him end it. Monica needs money so she agrees to cater her mother's party. Monica loses a fake fingernail in the quiche and discovers her mother bet with her dad that Monica would screw up catering the event. Chandler goes to break up with Joanna but ends up being handcuffed to the chair in her office half naked. Rachel has to uncuff him because Joanna is stuck with her boss and isn't coming back. But Rachel has to handcuff him back the way he was, otherwise Joanna will know Rachel was in her office. Monica impresses her mum with a wonderful dish for her guests after all and they finally get along. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

When Monica's mother comments on Monica's blue nails, Judy says "it's what your grandmother's nails looked like when we found her." However, Judy's mom dies in season 1 (the one where Nana dies twice) and Jack's mother, Monica's other grandmother, is at her wedding in season 7. When Althea (Judy's mom) died, it was in the hospital, and clearly could not have been "found" with blue fingernails. See more »

The One with the 'Cuffs
18 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Now this is another great episode. All three story lines are great.

The one about Chandler handcuffed in the Joanne's office is just perfect. Matthew Perry's acting is great including all his mimic and gestures. The dialogue is awesome and I really liked the dynamic between Rachel and Chandler when they were arguing as well as how it all ended

The story of Monica was pretty sweet. I liked how well they could make a story that can make one feel sad for Monica and that is funny at the same time.

And the story of Joey's encyclopedias is lots of fun as well, i must say i also love the new furniture in their house
