It is Valentine's day and only the boys have got dates. After an opening line about an egg that Joey and Chandler recommended, Ross gets his first date since his divorce with the ladylike Kristen. However Carol and her lesbian partner Susan end up in the same restaurant. Susan gets called away to work so Ross makes everyone shift seats to let Carol sit with him and his date. Alas their conversation gets a bit too exclusive. Joey insists that Chandler comes to a restaurant as his foxy date Lorraine demanded a double-date. Her unknown friend turns out to be Chandler's ex Janice. When Joey and Lorraine leave early, Chandler and Janice use his credit card to order the best champagne. The two bottles contain so much alcohol they wake up together. Meanwhile the date-less girls take Phoebe's advice to perform a cleansing ritual: burning in a keepsakes from boys they want to forget.

Thanksgiving, New Year and now Valentines
26 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Matthew Perry again brings the laughs and he is given good support from the always fun Maggie Wheeler as Janice.

Plot In A Paragraph: It's the day before Valentines day and Joey has finally landed a date with a hot girl, but she will only go out with him if he will bring someone along for her recently dumped friend. He takes Chandler along, who is horrified to find out the friend is Janice (who he has dumped twice now) and even more horrified the next morning when he wakes up next to her. Meanwhile the girls have an ex boyfriend ceremony.

So far in this first season, the best episodes are ones that have featured Matthew Perry's Chandler Bing heavily (often with him trying to dump Janice)and this is no exception.
