The one they all try the lottery
11 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Monica lends her Porsche to Joey, since he wants to go to the Lottery. The Powerball has a prize of 300 million and Monica gets excited about the idea of buying some tickets. Rachel gives the idea of they all spent 50 dollars each in buying tickets, and if one of them win, they split the prize.

Ross is the only one who doesn't want to participate, since he doesn't believe in lotteries and think he is going to waste his money, but Monica pays for him, since she wants him to participate as well.

Everybody is anxious and with hope. Phoebe goes to a psychic and Monica brings a wishbone to give them more luck. When they discover that Monica bought more tickets and didn't tell them, a big discussion starts.

Meanwhile, Chandler is waiting to see if he is going to take a job in the agency he did his internship, but every time someone calls him, is to tell that other person got the chance.
