This is a really nice episode, with three good story lines.
It was nice to see Lisa Kudrow being given more to do, and in Paul Rudd she has a good actor to bounce off as her new love interest, Mike.
David Scwhimmer was also particularly funny in his story line, and having been paired with Jennifer Aniston's Rachel for much of the last series, it was good to see him in a fresh environment.
I said in a few reviews of series 8 episodes that I didn't like the fact that Chandler was so under the thumb in his marriage, so it was nice to see the dynamic being altered in this episode, with Chandler being sent off to Tulsa. Matthew Perry and Courtney Cox were sweet in their parting scene.
An impressive episode.
