The One with the Candy Hearts
10 June 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is an episode where all the story lines are pretty funny

My favorite is of course Chandler's surprise Valentine's dinner with Janice, It is funny from the moment he realizes who his date is all the way to their conversation in the coffee place. And Janice's final speech is awesome

Girls having a burning ritual to get a better guy is pretty funny too. Especially because of the final sentences that the fireman guys say on the stairs

Ross's date where he meets Susan and Carol is a great part of the episode as well. I can't stop saying how awesome David Schwimmer was on the show
