The One with the Bullies
20 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is again one of the bit slower episodes.

The story with the bullies is not really funny until the very end where they start the fight but have limited areas to hit each other since they have some adult reasons why they can't have bruises on their faces or be kicked in the crotch. It is also funny how nothing happens since they have to get together to catch the thieves who took their things while they were getting ready In Phoebe's story it was funny how she ends up running over her father's family's dog. And while she still doesn't meet her father she gets to know her little brother Frank Jr.

I also liked the ending of Monica working in a diner and dressing up in a ridiculous costume to dance with the rest of the staff of the counter
