Storyline

Rachel tells Phoebe and Monica, Ross tells Chandler and Joey about their kiss. Ross doesn't know what he's doing because he can't figure out whether to be with Julie or Rachel. Everyone (including Julie) is at Central Perk and Phoebe sings a song about their love triangle. Monica gets a new job making up recipes for a synthetic chocolate substitute. Chandler, Joey and Ross make a list with Julie and Rachel's pros and cons to make it easier for Ross to pick one of them. Monica makes Phoebe and Rachel try her terrible Mockolate recipes. Ross breaks up with Julie and Rachel is very happy but she sees the list they wrote and is not exactly happy... they argue and Rachel doesn't want to be with Ross anymore. Ross gives everything to win Rachel back. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

One of the items on Ross's list of Rachel's good qualities (which he is shouting out to her while climbing up the fire escape to her balcony) is "...how great you are with Ben!" Ironically, in every subsequent story where Rachel is tasked with watching Ben [all the way to season 7], we learn that she knows nothing about babies, she holds Ben "like a bomb", and generally she has never been around babies since the time she was one.

Worst Episode Of The Season
8 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Worst episode of the second season which so far has been solid.

Plot In A Paragraph: When he is unable to decide who he wants (Like every viewer does not know he REALLY wants Rachel) Ross uses Chandlers new laptop to make a list of pros and cons to decide whether to be with Julie or Rachel. Meanwhile, a desperate for work Monica gets a job making food with a disgusting chocolate substitute.

So far season 2 of "Friends" has been very solid, but this is the worst episode so far of this season, as Ross dithers over who he wants, and then upsets Rachel for what appears to be no good reason other than to keep him and Rachel apart so the writers can use the same Ross and Rachel storyline that has worked so well so far.
