The One with the Pediatrician, 6 September 2011

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

In this episode we get a new great addition to Friends: Paul Rudd. I like the actor and am glad that he was part of the great show Friends. It is pretty funny how he joins them. The way Joey found him and the time they were sitting at the table at the restaurant were great scenes. I especially like how Joey started yelling for another Mike there.

I liked how "grown up" Joey and Rachel were about Dr. Weiner's name.

Sad to see Chandler go to Tulsa. But I loved how Joey was handling it. Especially when he doesn't let Monica talk to his best buddy on the phone, that was so Joey! The way Phoebe acted was a bit weird, I think they exaggerated there, this is not exactly what I would see her do. She may not be best friends with Chandler but she does love him too
