Trivia

Joey's (Matt LeBlanc) arm is in a protective sling. In real life, LeBlanc had dislocated his shoulder on set attempting a sight gag. At the beginning of this episode, Chandler overhears Joey bouncing on his bed and falling off. This was written into the story line to explain why the character would be wearing a sling. See more »

Goofs

In the scene in Monica's apartment where Phoebe enters and they question her about 'the maniac', just as Phoebe kneels down and says "he's yummy, we did a little kissing", a boom mic is visible at the top of the screen just above Rachael's head. See more »

Massive Drop In Quality
12 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Only one part of this episode was funny for me and that was the Chandler storyline. Such a drop in quality after the first two episodes were great.

Plot In A Paragraph: Much to an injured Joeys delight, a depressed Monica starts making tons of jam to take control of her life and to get over Richard. After a while Monica abandons the jam plan, and decides to have a baby instead. Leaving Ross threatening to tell their parents. Meanwhile Phoebe is dating a guy (David Arquette) who used to be obsessed with her sister and now has a restraining order to keep away from Ursula and Chandler seeks advice from Ross on how to get some space in the bed on a night, so Ross tells him about his "hug and roll" technique.
