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
