Ross meets an amazing girl from Poughkeepsie on the train. Rachel hates to be alone around the festive season. She doesn't necessarily need a real relationship but would love to have a fling.

The One with the Girl from Poughkeepsie
25 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode is a great improvement from the previous one but still pretty mediocre. There is nothing very funny or interesting in it.

The story about Ross dating a girl that lives far was just not very fun. There wasn't much happening. It is one of the stories that I forget right away and don't remember the episode existed.

Same goes for the story of Chandler hooking up Rachel with his co workers. Although it did make me chuckle a few times When it comes to Monica's story I just enjoyed the parts when she was harassed by the people who work in the restaurant. She deserved it. She sure isn't a good person as she claims to be. She is egoistic and arrogant but at the same time has no balls to fight for herself, this is what her kind of people usually are like
