The One With Emma's First Birthday...
18 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's hilarious. I like that it takes place in one night, in pretty much one room.

In this episode, it's Emma's first birthday, and Rachel is so excited. Why wouldn't she be? Emma's party takes place in her and Joey's apartment, and everyone's invited. Monica, Chandler, Ross, Phoebe, Joey and Ross's parents. Rachel won't let the party officially start until the birthday girl wakes up. Everyone films a video talking to future Emma, as Ross and Rachel will give her the tape on her eighteenth birthday. Rachel is so excited for the cake. It's supposed to be a bunny with Emma's face on it, but it turns out that they made the wrong cake. It's a penis with Emma's face on it. Why Rachel wouldn't check the cake before leaving the shop is beyond me, but whatever. So, Rachel and Ross have to drive back to the cake store to get a new cake. And everyone wants to leave. But since they're not allowed, they play with Emma's toys.

Fun Fact: This is a rare episode in which there are no scenes in Monica and Chandler's apartment.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10.
