Storyline

Chandler and Monica plan a weekend on false work-related pretenses so they can be alone. Ross tells Rachel that Emily is coming to New York and they can't see each other anymore. On top of that, Rachel's dog Lapooh just died so she is furious and both her and Ross are inconsolable. Monica constantly demands new hotel rooms for silly reasons and Chandler can't keep his eyes from the TV. They argue, and when they return home Chandler tells Monica he thought their relationship was over. To his delight, Monica is determined to make up and continue. After a number of indelicate slips from Monica and Chandler Joey finally realizes they are involved but they swear him to secrecy. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Dr. Ross Geller: Hi!
Rachel Green: What are you doing here? Isn't this against the rules?
Dr. Ross Geller: Look. Monica told me about the phasing out thing. I'm the one who is making things change, so I should be the one to, you know, step back.
Rachel Green: [interrupting] Ross...
Dr. Ross Geller: No, I mean it. There's plenty of people who only see their sisters at Thanksgiving, who only see their college roommates at reunions and who only see Joey at Burger King! So is that better?
Rachel Green: [long pause] No it's not better! I still don't get to see you!
Dr. Ross Geller: Well, what would you do, ...

The One with the Kips
11 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

And once again we get a whole load of Monica's nasty selfishness. After she gets together with Chandler it is always there. She is annoying, ruining their weekend, being a horrible customer to hotel staff and she even dares to complain and say that Chandler was wrong? He put up with her horrible personality and she doesn't appreciate it. And she thinks that it is funny that he believed that their relationship, because according to her staying together means that they are in an adult relationship. An adult relationship doesn't mean that one let's some nasty wench oppress you and ruin your life. Chandler should have told her to f off because she doesn't deserve someone like him, or anyone.

The good part of the show was Joey finding out that Chandler and Monica are together. His reaction was so funny

and it was very sweet of Ross to step back and let Rachel have the friends. but it still makes one feel sad that their friendship may soon be over
