Judy is standing next to Monica with both of her hands in front of her, holding her purse. The camera changes and Judy suddenly has her arm around Monica, with no time for her to have done so.

The One with the Cake
13 September 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

And another fun episode. It is Emma's first birthday! It is kind of sad how nobody besides Rachel thought of it as a big deal. Why would Phoebe have massage clients that day or Chandler and Monica a trip planned? Wouldn't people take a day off for something as special as the first birthday of their best friend's kid?

But this weird detail brought some fun in the episode! It was funny how Joey tried to keep them all in the apartment and yet wanted to leave for his audition. And how they had a contest of robotic toys race!

I also liked Phoebe's song and how she also tried to do dramatic reading since Joey's was so successful!

Ross trying to make the video and all the things his parents and friends were saying for Emma was awesome as well
