Did You Know?


Ross, when lamenting his break up with Charlie, states to Rachel that she's the only attractive palaeontologist. He dated Julie in season 2 who is also one. See more »


Monica and Chandler have placed out several books around the apartment, presumably to show off a cultural side to them to the social worker. One of the prominent books is "The Photo Book", published by Phaidon. Whilst being a highly cultural and popular book, it seems unlikely that Monica would place it out given it contains, amongst other images, photos from crime scenes and of nudes. Whilst not "porn", it seems like an oversight given the amount of times she mentions removing Chandler's porn so the social worker wouldn't see it. See more »

The One With The Wedding Money...
2 June 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so funny and entertaining.

In this episode, Phoebe and Mike continuously change their mind about their wedding. Deciding to have a small wedding and donate the money to charity, then taking the money back for a big wedding, over and over. Meanwhile, Ross makes Rachel face her fear of swing sets, and Monica and Chandler get a home visit from their adoption interviewer, only to find out that Joey hooked up with her years before. That is just so typical of Joey, isn't it?

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
