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.
