Monica Geller (as Courteney Cox Arquette)
Joey Tribbiani (as Matt Le Blanc)
Stacy Galina ...
Julie Graff


The boys watch Die Hard for the zillionth time and Joey had planned to watch Die Hard II next but rented I again. Chandler splits but Joey and Ross stay but doze off, freaking out when they wake up cuddled together. Worringly both have never felt better rested. Joey is determined to try it again, Ross too afraid of 'being weird'. Monica decides to make the other girls decide themselves who gets to be her bridesmaid. Phoebe claims to have never done it, Rachel has done it twice but both are lying. They accept Joey's idea that he and Ross should audition the candidates, who both play ruthlessly on the judges' weak points. The result is surprising. When Monica meets Chandler's teenager Summercamp-girlfriend Julie Graff, she makes him apologize for dumping Julie on account of her being overweight. Written by KGF Vissers

The One with the Nap Partners
20 August 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode is pretty good. I especially like the story of Rachel and Phoebe trying to decide who will be Monica's maid of honor. The whole competition was so ridiculous and funny"! I think what was so fun about it is that guys were giving more points to the answers that seemed to be the worst for somebody being a maid of honor. And it was also very sweet how at the end Phoebe let Rachel be the maid of honor because she saw how much it meant to her. Of course Monica will not make it a pleasant experience (what were they thinking) and it was funny when Rachel said: "Wait she will be yours!"

The nap of Joey and Ross was great as well. Especially how much Joey was trying to get it again
