Storyline

Monica still can't get a job, and money is becoming tight. Ross gets her to agree to ask her parents for money. Joey buys Chandler a hideous gold friendship bracelet, and overhears Chandler complaining about it to Phoebe. Ross continues to pine after Rachel, who Phoebe insists is his "lobster", but she makes it pretty clear that its not happening. However, when an old home video of Monica and Rachel's prom is discovered, Ross's true feelings for Rachel are shown. Written by WildwoodFlower08

Bracelet Buddies
11 December 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A classic Friends episode, not as good as the last one, but still great TV.

Plot In A Paragraph: Monica receives some boxes of things off her parents from her old bedroom, in their is an old videotape of her and Rachel getting ready for their prom, which reveals Ross made an unexpected gesture all those years ago. Meanwhile Joey buys Chandler an expensive gold bracelet which he hates.

I enjoyed the Joey and Chandler storyline more than the prom video, as both Perry and Le Blanc knock it out of the park, but the prom video is still great stuff.
