Storyline

Emily will be leaving in 2 days and Ross is very sad but they both knew they'd only have 2 weeks together. Phoebe craves meat but won't eat it. Joshua tells Rachel he had a date and he just isn't ready to be dating so Rachel invites him over for Emily's party even though they didn't really plan a party. They invite people on short notice for their fake party. Rachel tries to figure out how she can kiss Joshua without letting him know that she likes him so they play spin the bottle. Rachel is about to kiss Joshua when Phoebe exclaims that the baby kicked so Rachel's chance is over. Rachel's seduction doesn't work out so she just tells Joshua that she likes him and it turns out that Joshua likes Rachel too. Phoebe's cravings are so bad that she eats meat after all. She feels bad for the dead animals so Joey promises not to eat any meat until the baby is born. Written by Anonymous

Pretty funny.
30 October 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode follows 3 stories. Phoebe eating meat. This one involves a nice deed from joey. But adds little humour to the episode. Rachel trying to seduce Joshua. The episode focuses most on this one and while it does have many funny moments, its completely absurd. And for some reason I'm not too fond of Rachel in this episode. Maybe because this isn't the type of humour Jennifer anniston is best at. Maybe if the same thing was done by joey or chandler I would have liked it more. Ross not wanting Emily to leave. Pretty standard. Almost no humour. Joey chandler and Monica aren't focused on but are probably the funniest characters in the episode. Overall a funny episode. But they picked the wrong character to throw the ridiculous party. It doesn't work with rachel.7/10.
