Episode cast overview:


Monica is a wandering zombie after dumping Richard for not sharing her child-wish. Ross confides in Rachel his sexual fantasy is princess Leia's gold bikini in Star Wars, but doesn't appreciate her telling it to blabbermouth Phoebe; when Rachel assures him boys miss out on true bonding because they don't tell each-other intimate details, he tries it with Chandler who brings up a very unfit confidence. As Joey really can't handle the prospect of Chandler not dumping Janice as usual, the two try spending whole 'day of fun' together for their common friend Chandler's sake. Written by KGF Vissers

The One with the Princess Leia Fantasy
13 May 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Monica is depressed because of the end of her relationship with Richard.

Chandler starts to go out with Janice(who is going to divorce) again, for Joey's despair. Joey really can't handle Janice, and since this time Chandler doesn't want to broke with her, he tries to become her friend. (Without success!)

Rachel wants to spice up things with Ross, and asks him about his sexual fantasies. He tells her that is princess Leia's gold bikini in Star Wars. The problem for him is that Rachel shares his fantasy with her friends, so his fantasy is not a secret anymore.

Feeling encouraged by Rachel to share intimate things with his friends, Ross and Chandler start to talk about their confidences, until Chandler scares Ross with a bizarre fantasy with his mother.
