Monica takes the other girls to an overpriced store to choose her wedding dress, briefing as if they were in the military as bargain-hunters are far more ruthless then Rachel can usually handle. The worst shopper is Megan who grabs the dress Monica wants then blackmails her over booking of a particular swing band which is about the only thing Chandler really wants for the wedding. Ross and Joey independently meet and date Kristen Leigh while helping her move in. The rivals agree to let her choose after one date with each but they get so carried away cheating on the deal that she runs off altogether. Written by KGF Vissers

The One with the Cheap Wedding Dress
23 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Monica's dress story isn't so bad. I really liked how they were buying that dress. How Rachel was all scared and how Monica took the dress from that other woman while holding her down on the floor. I also must say that I liked how Monica gave up her dress so that Chandler can have the band he wanted. Seeing her giving up something for others is unusual, and it was sweet

Ross and Joey dating the same girl had good parts as well. My favorite is when Ross said he wouldn't want to be the other guy to Joey, not knowing yet that thats who he was. And of course the part where they tell all the bad things about each other in the restaurant in front of her
